The best of Moscow in one day with a private guide

The tour is combination of walking/metro and private car transport. That way we'll not spend hours in the city center traffic jams and also have possibility to reach interesting places outside the city center.
In this tour you will see the main Moscow attractions: Red Square, GUM shopping mall, St Basil's Cathedral, Bolshoi Theatre, Alexander Garden, Lenin's mausoleum, Christ the Savior Cathedral, Kitay Gorod and some beautiful metro stations. We'll go inside the Kremlin to see it's beautiful cathedrals and other historical buildings. Kremlin armory and Diamond Fund can be optionally added to the tour itinerary.
In the second part of our trip we take comfortable car and go beyond the center to see wonderful Stalin's Seven Sisters skyscrapers including Moscow University at Sparrow Hills. We will pass by Victory Park and go to Novodevichy Convent to see it's marvelous architecture.
We will also visit one of the nice Russian restaurant on the way to enjoy local food.
