Description
Meet your guide at Kutafia Tower at the Kremlin and get ready for an informative small-group tour.

Envision the grandeur of the Grand Kremlin Palace and walk around its central courtyard, visiting monuments and cathedrals. In Ivan Square, see the popular Tsar Bell, the world’s largest at 20 feet (6 meters) tall. Made of bronze and adorned with portraits of Tsar Alexei and Empress Anna, the bell broke during casting and was never repaired.

Check out the 16th-century Tsar Cannon, one of the largest ever made at almost 20 feet (6 meters) long. From here, view the southern exterior façade of the Senate Palace, which currently houses the Russian presidential administration.

In Cathedral Square, visit the 15th-century Assumption Cathedral, once the main church of Russia and the place of coronation for all Russian tsars and emperors, and view Archangel Cathedral, once a burial place for Moscow’s imperial kingdom. Gaze up at Ivan the Great Bell Tower, reaching a height of 266 feet (81 meters) and topped with a golden dome and 23-foot (7-meter) high cross.

Your small-group tour ends at Borovitskaya Tower, where you can continue to visit other cathedrals of the Kremlin on your own.

The tour guide was very attentive to the needs of the group, and explained the buildings and historical significance of the kremlin in very good detail. A good way to experience the Kremlin in a few hours.

This is all you need! Once you're in, you get the guided tour and afterwards, you're free to wander about! Just what I expected. Guide was great!

First of all, a visit to the Kremlin is an absolute must whilst in Moscow. If you're short on time, then this tour is a great way of getting an overview of the main highlights and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. However, it took about 45 minutes from when we met to actually get in to the Kremlin as we waited for those who hadn't pre-booked to pay for their tour, for the tour guide to get the entry tickets and to get through security. This meant that by the time we had finished, we only had about 45 minutes left before the Kremlin closed for the day to explore on our own. Overall, I'd say it's worth doing if you only have limited time but be aware that you may not have a lot of time to explore anything in greater detail.

It took way too long before we started, first had to wait as a whole group to solve an incident with some confirmation of tickets of participants, then the guide still had to buy tickets and finally we had to wait in a long queu. So we finally were in 1,5 hours later! The tour was ok, not special

Sep 2015

I was unable to find the guide amongst all the people there. In the end I bought another ticket for myself and did a self guided tour of the Kremlin. Waste of money booking the tour

At specified tour time and place, there is no trace of tour leader, I have to buy the ticket myself at the ticket office, I just don't know what happened!
