What people are saying about Moscow Kremlin

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.

Really interesting tours where you can see old items and also traditional souvenirs to buy at a real good price much better than Moscow central also the painting of your own doll was amazing. My tour Dalia was a ket factor in making this a real nice tour as she is well informed, has humor, humble and self aware

Even in winter, this place stands out in the midst of cloudy sky, but the inside is magnificent, with great history behind it. Visti this place at night, you'll be feel amazed by it's lighting.

Excellent ride, the Soviet truck is too much fun. Excellent guide, Tim is very nice as well as super friendly and has a very good story. Highly recommended.

Everything was excellent thanks for the tour guide
