Stroll along Moscow's off the beaten path streets and sip coffee like locals do

One of the easiest ways to explore, discover and admire a city is simply by Walking!!!

Do you want to have a general or deep insight of the city and some neighbourhoods? Its traditions, local life, main attractions?

If you really want something special, if you really want to experience Moscow how locals do —
This tour is definitely for you.

We will set off on our 4-hour walking tour,
exploring the grand avenues and smaller streets.

As we walk I will point out examples of Soviet and Russian architecture.
You will learn the history of this area, the stories about Napoleon's invasion, famous Russian writers, and Moscow's Horse Races.
I will share with you my own, very personal view on Moscow and show you some hidden spots.
We will enjoy cappuccino, visit Georgian church and have some local pastries with lemonade, find a magic portal to the Zoo, explore 7 Stalin Sisters, stroll around Patriarch Ponds and check the very best candy store in Moscow!

We will have a brilliant day!
