Nice tour but should have updates on timings about other free passages inside Kremlin and Red Square , as of ot is an introductory tour. Audio Guide should be Included in Armoury Chamber. Otherwise very good Place to See and spend time. It takes around 3 days to see entire Kremlin and Red Square churches , Exhibitions and Tombs
