When your guide picks you up from your hotel, walk together to the city center and start your private tour at Red Square.

Your guide will point out the GUM department store, now a shopping mall, as well as Lenin’s Mausoleum and the Historical Museum.


See the neo-classical Bolshoi Theater, home to the renowned Bolshoi Ballet and Bolshoi Opera, and watch the changing of the guards near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Your guide will point out the former KGB headquarters and the Moscow Hotel, a modern replicate of the former Hotel Moskva, which was famously depicted on the Stolichnaya Vodka label.


Continue to the famous Moscow Kremlin for a guided tour of the grounds and learn about the history of this amazing fortress, once home to Russian tsars and communist leaders. See where coronations of Russian royalty took place at the Assumption Cathedral and admire the gorgeous palaces of Russian emperors, as well as the Tsar Bell and Tsar Cannon.

As a solo female traveller, I opted for this private tour to help orientate myself on the first day in Moscow. Was so glad I did !
It gave me confidence to navigate the metro system alone and to get my bearings with a local who could give advice. It was great to get a feel for places and areas that I could return to afterwards but even if you did only one trip whilst in Moscow this would ensure you saw all the highlights. Perfect !

Anya was fantastic. Jamie and I had a wonderful day. Her quiz questions kept us on our toes all day. Anya wa s on full of energy, facts and enthusiasm. Well done Anya. We so appreciated your knowledge and great style. Diana

Great English speaking tour guide who added insight into the daily life of Moscow residents.

Did this tour the following day after arriving in Moscow. The tour guide was very informative and spoke very good English. Did not have to wait in any lines for tickets to the Kremlin, HIghly recommend this tour.

This is a very close second to the best city tour I have had and I am strictly speaking from the experience enhanced by the guide and not the city itself. Our guide, a part time IT consultant paced the journey perfectly, encouraged interaction and complicated questions and a 6 hour walk one one of the hottest day in Moscow passed us by. The choice of restaurant for lunch was amazing as well. A strong recommendation as just a separate Moscow tour just would not do without including the Kremlin.

This was the highlight of our recent tour to Russia and all because of our amazing guide - Liudmila. It was just my husband and I on the tour and we were therefore able to decide where we want to go and Mila went out of her way to make it special - not only in what she showed us, but also in what she shared with us - and her English is amazing! It was a long day, but we saw everything we wanted and more and had a really interesting lunch at a typical Russian restaurant - loved it. If you are going on this tour ask for Liudmila to be your guide - of all the guides we had in Russia, she really stood out as the best! This is one tour you cannot miss when visiting Moscow.

The private walking tour of Moscow was wonderful. Antonia and Airat were very friendly and informative. They made our trip to Moscow a memory we will always cherish.

Guide was very good and personable. Level of knowledge/detail was about what I expected and all that I required.

This was the most sub optimal tour I have taken in a Long time. Anna the guide was hardly qualified to lead a private tour. She had charm but little in the form of knowledge of the history, culture and art of the place of which there was plenty on display. I could have done miles better on a self guided tour. Not value for money at all. In contrast read my review of the St Petesburg walk.

The guide company forgot to turn up. After waiting half an hour at our hotel we rang and they lost our booking and forgot to turn up. We were offerred a tour much later that day or the following day but that didnt suit.
We ended up visiting the Kremiln by ourselves which was actually very easy

My wishlist
