Kremlin and its treasuries of Armoury Chamber and Diamond Fund are impressive while recognizing an important notice that scheduled 3m4 hours are enough only for getting only a general and initial (though very inspiring !) impression. Nice as introductory tour in order to recognize that Armoury Chamber must be visited later for much more hours with a professional guide to continue further uncovering its mysteries and adore this fantastic and diverse exhibition !

Our guide Lubov was very kind and helpfull, also she spoke english very well. We were picked up at out hotel. The communication up forehand was good. She also took the time to show us the metrosystem. We have learned a lot about russian history. There is zo much to see within the kremlin. Also the armory is very enjoyable. I totally recommend this tour!

Segi was amazing, it was like having our own Russian historian take us through the ages of Moscow. First class and worth every penny
