Overview

See the stand-out sights of Moscow’s Red Square, Nikolskaya Street and Alexandrovsky Garden on a 2-hour small-group walking tour! While listening to captivating commentary about the Russian capital, scout out some of Moscow’s top attractions to learn about their history and take photos. See St Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin, Lenin’s Tomb and the Bolshoi Theatre alongside other lesser-known but equally laudable landmarks.

Numbers are limited to 10 on this small-group tour ensuring personalized attention from a guide.

Meet your guide near the Bolshoi Theater in central Moscow, and then set off with your small group to explore the Russian capital. As you walk, listen to tales of the history, architecture, culture and politics that make Moscow the hotbed of intrigue that it is today.

While enjoying the entertaining commentary, discover a collection of Moscow’s finest attractions and historical landmarks. Stroll through Red Square, the beautiful plaza that represents the heart of the city, and hear of Soviet parades and protests that have taken place there over the years. The candy-colored domes of St Basil’s Cathedral stand out as you enter Red Square, so wander over to the extravagant landmark for a close-up view.

As much a city icon as the Kremlin, the cathedral was built to wow and its attention-grabbing architecture and design make for unforgettable photos. Pose against St Basil’s colorful façade, and then continue through Red Square to Lenin’s Tomb, the final resting place of Russia’s (arguably) most radical communist leader.

Pass the State History Museum, where Stone Age-era Russian artifacts are housed, and see one of the country’s first department stores: GUM. Amble out of Red Square and make your way along Nikolskaya Street, admiring its chic boutiques and stately-looking buildings, and stop for photos outside the famous Bolshoi Theatre, a site synonymous with ballet, theater and scandal.

Continue with a walk through Alexandrovsky Garden to see the Kremlin’s walls and towers, and visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier where the Changing of the Guard Ceremony takes place. Throw a coin in the garden’s ruined grotto for luck while hearing stories of the Kremlin: the symbol of the Russian state and one of the world’s most fascinating architectural complexes.

After two hours exploring the city, work your way back to the start point and bid your guide goodbye as your tour finishes.

Excellent walking tour. We were the only ones who booked so it ended up being a private tour. Guide was kind and knowledgeable.

We met our guide precisely as indicated on the ticket. She was timely and walked us through central Moscow, showing us the sights and providing interesting historical commentary. We saw the Bolshoi, the Metropol Hotel, Red Square, GUMM Department Store, Kemlin, and much more. Our guide was very friendly and spoke great English. This tour was great for our first day in Moscow and getting the lay of the land and some great recommendations and tips on how to navigate the biggest tourist spots in Moscow. Highly recommend.

Our guide, Lydia, was a jewel !!!!! We were there in September and there was a constant drizzle on the day of our tour. While some may have canceled a walking tour that was just 2 people.....she showed up fashionably dressed with an umbrella to share with us. She gave us a full, amazing tour of the backstreets of the city which began with a quick tour inside of the Metropol. We enjoyed her company so much, we invited her to join us for lunch our treat so we could get to know as much about life in Moscow as we learned about Moscow from her tour. Another must see when in Moscow!
