Full description
Experience the vibrant party scene in Moscow from a new perspective and join an experienced guide on a 4-hour pub crawl in a van that dates back to the days of the Soviet Union. Benefit from pick-up at your hotel, and then relax aboard the classic van, equipped with a beer cooler and massive Bluetooth loudspeaker to start the party even before you arrive at the first venue. Get served some Russian snacks (on request) to line you stomach. Arrive at a cocktail bar with a terrace overlooking the golden domes of the Christ the Saviour Cathedral. Continue to a Stalinist-era skyscraper to enjoy some drinks on its unusual rooftop bar.

Moving through the streets of Moscow in a Soviet van drinking beers and champagne already has its why, if then when you get out of the van you go to high-class places and literally hidden places you will experience the real thrill of a Russian evening made as it should be.

The minibus was cool

Picking up from our Hotel Baltschug worked wonderfully, the telephone contact was perfect beforehand. The first bar was not the big hit, hardly any audience, the location was very bright, more of a restaurant than a bar. The second bar was top, as you would like, rooftop bar with a sensational view from the 21st floor after Our wishes were mixed cocktails, very very great. The third bar was mysterious, had to go through an ASIA snack, bag control, very dark, you couldn't read the drinks menu without a cell phone flashlight, but it was cool. The promised snacks and vodka in the Soviet minivan were missing, but beer and champagne were on board. The nice young Anna was very fluent and accommodating.

One of the best experiences I have ever had. Not only were Nisia and Kayta very informative and knowledgable they made me feel welcome. He had great conversation and they told me about the history of Moscow as we drove around. They made it night I will always remember!
