City tour, Red Square and Kremlin, metro visit

If you have only one day to explore the city, this is probably what would suit you best.

I will pick you up from your hotel or from train terminal, and we'll take a driving sightseeing tour first. After visiting Red Square and having a lunch break, I will guide you into the Kremlin, actual residence of Russian president. We'll walk around the grounds and visit fabulous cathedrals of the Tsars.

I will show you also one of the most beautiful metro stations and if you wish, we can even take a short ride to let you feel yourself for few minutes a part of the crowd.

The tour is not fully flexible as we have to enter the Kremlin at a particular time but we are free to change other details upon your wish and personal interests.

I try to cooperate with professional drivers whom I know for years. Vehicle's type depends on number of passangers, most often I use a Viano Mercedes or similar to drive up to 5 people and minivan for a larger group.

A Recent Review of this tour

Svetlana was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. We had a very interesting and enjoyable day in Moscow. Her English is very good and she is friendly and helpful. She answered all questions I sent prior to this trip timeously and went out of her way to get tickets to the Armory museum and to explain how to collect them and where to enter.
