What To Expect
Meet your guide at the Kutafia Tower of the Kremlin in central Moscow and set out on your 2-hour tour with your group. Get an introduction to the Kremlin, learning how its walls and towers were built in the 15th century as Moscow’s citadel.
Head inside with your guide, and admire the grandeur of the Grand Kremlin Palace, once home to some of Russia’s Tsars. Continue into Ivan Square, the Kremlin’s biggest courtyard.
Admire the Tsar Bell — the world’s largest — displayed here, and inspect its carved images of the Tsar Alexei and Empress Anna. See the 16th-century Tsar Cannon, one of the largest ever made at almost 20 feet (6 meters) long, and admire the facade of the Senate Palace, currently the residence of president of Russian Federation.
Stroll around Cathedral Square, and visit the 15th-century Assumption Cathedral, once Russia’s main church and coronation site of the Tsars. Then, visit the beautiful 16th-century Archangel’s Cathedral, topped by five domes and home to the tombs of many medieval Tsars and princes. Ogle the Ivan the Great Bell Tower, a 16th-century white tower that stands 266 feet (81 meters) high, and is crowned by a gleaming gold dome and cross.
Your 2-hour tour finishes at the imposing Borovitskaya Tower when your guide departs, leaving you free to make your exit or continue visiting other parts of the Kremlin independently. After the excursion, your guide will be happy to answer all of your questions and gave an advice of other places worth visiting.

This was incredible, our tour guide (Elena, I believe) was absolutely phenomenal. She made the entire experience quite a blast. We were 10 in the group and everyone could hear Elena very well. She was also very helpful in recommending places to eat and visit outside the tour

The whole experience was unforgettable. Kremlin and Red Square Area were amazing. St. Basil Cathedral (the onion dome landmark of Moscow) was like a dream. I had to go to the bottom and touch the walls for myself. Did not go inside as it was not part of the tour, but loved it anyway. There's the GUM Dept Stores you could go in and look around. Went back to Red Square at night without the guide, and it was worth to see the area at night, with lots of lights like Christmas time. Loved Russian capital very much.

Externally the scale of the walls is impressive but inside the space and buildings are even more impressive. This is a government working facility so the route through is very prescribed. However, the buildings, space, Cathedrals and gardens are so impressive - extending the visit to take in the Armory to see the jewels and general belongings of the Tzars is breathtaking. Viktoria was our guide. In addition to her informative and insightful narrative, being a history major, her knowledge, comments, and perspectives on Russia for the last 100 years on politics, space exploration, cold war, Nixon/ Khrushchev, communism, etc were highly invaluable.

To begin with, I want to emphasize that a visit to the Kremlin is an absolute must whilst in Moscow. If you are short on time, then this tour is a great way of getting an overview of the main highlights and our tour guide Ann was very informative and made the excursion very interesting. I'd say it's worth doing if you only have limited time but be aware that you may not have a lot of time to explore anything in greater detail because there are really a lot of things to see. Great afternoon. Would highly recommend this tour.
