Guide was good but deal is misleading

The guide got our time wrong which she profusely apologized for, and it was fine because she was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. However you don’t actually “skip the line” with this tour. You do get your ticket included so I guess you skip THAT line, but you’re then fumbled in with the rest of the tour groups of 20-40 people trying to squeeze through security.

History of Russia in 30 minutes!

Excellent information from very friendly guide welcoming us to Kremlin and giving us a fantastic overview of Russian history in a short time before we took the tickets and entered the Kremlin by ourselves. Very pleasant to walk around and enjoy the sights within the walls - just don’t step on the road other than on official crossing places (unless you like hearing loud police whistles!). This is a very worthwhile tour.

Well recommend if visiting the Kremlin (and the Kremlin is a must see)

So for anyone visiting Moscow, the Kremlin is a place you might have thought wouldn't be accessible but it is. Infact it's a must see on your visit. This tour will start off beside Red Square and the guide will bring you into Red Square and then down to the Garden built by a former Tsar. Its great value for money. You get to hear information that you won't get from a map or book. Plus the guide will have your tickets ready so you don't have to join the ticket queue. You'll only have to join the security check queue which moves quickly. So to summarise, this tour is good value for money. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Its well worth booking. The Kremlin has the wow factor.
