The Best of Moscow in 5 hours
If you are scared by agency prices and not ready to pay for transportation by tour vehicles during FIFA World Cup 2018 this tour is a perfect option to explore Moscow. You have a private guide and the best subway in the world at your disposal.
This tour includes 1, 5 hours' walking tour in the centre (Red Square, Bolshoi Theatre, State Duma, Gum Department Store, Zaryadye Park, St Basil Cathedral, Alexander Garden, etc. ), a short one hour tour of Moscow Metro and one museum visit of your choice. You can choose between the State Tretyakov Gallery, Historical Museum of Moscow or St Basil Cathedral.
It's also possible to customize the tour according to your request, for example, your guide can meet you at the Leningradsky rail terminal, etc.
Welcome to Moscow!
This is a tour for the first time visitors who want to get the idea of the city with a professional guide so that to continue exploring the city on their own. This is a short and informative visit that combines Red Square area with adjacent streets and gardens, a visit to Moscow Metro and one museum of your choice. If I were you I would choose the State Tretyakov Gallery every time :) because it is the best way to explore history of Russia from medieval to modern times in pictures. However, St Basil Cathedral or Historical Museum can be good options too.
Please, note, that the State Tretyakov Gallery is closed on Monday, St Basil Cathedral on Wednesday and Historical Museum on Tuesday (some changes apply during high season)
