Excellent guide... knowledgeable, well-spoken, engaging, all the things you would want out of a guide for such a major collection of Moscow sites. Was always evaluating to make sure we were seeing things we wanted to see and was willing to go into more or less detail depending on how interested we were. Was also great to get such a frank and nuanced view on Russian history from a Russian themselves.

An excellent tour though rather pricey for what was involved

My guide, a charming Moscovite, was very well versed in the Kremlins history and made the visit into a fascinating afternoon. Though the tour was meant to be 4 hours it was nearer to three which was fine for me as we had covered everything within that time frame. I actually ended up in a one on one situation as no one else had booked for a tour in English the day I visited on 15th July. The Kremlin is well worth a visit though I had to come back the next day to visit the Armoury as it was not included in the somewhat expensive tour that I enrolled for.

Elena, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the places. She was also very patient to us when we made some stops to take some photos and buy souvenirs.
