based on 283 reviews

This is a hotel pickup and travel by metro tour. Traffic in Moscow is busy so this worked out well. In winter the outdoors was snowed out so the gun/tank displays were closed. However the indoor section was comprehensive. School students were performing commemorative services. Russia takes the Great Patriotic War very seriously.

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.
