Dear guests, you can choose several sights to see during the day:

1. The Kremlin - the ancient city
2. The Armoury - a unique museum based on the tzars' treasures
3. Red Square, St. Basil's cathedral, GUM and Lenin's tomb - the most iconic Moscow views.
4. Christ the Saviour cathedral - the biggest Orthodox church in the world
5. Moscow Metro, where every station is like a ballroom
6. Tretyakov Gallery - a collection of Russian art, amazingly realistic and telling a lot about Russian life and history
7. Novodevichy Convent - a place of seclusion of many royal women
8. Novodevichy cemetry - the most prestigious burial spot in the country
9. Victory park and the museum of WWII - 6 main battles are shown as dioramas
10. Space Museum - learn about the Soviet space program
11. Izmaylovo Souvenir Market - the name tells for itself
12. Kolomenskoye estate - a picturesque park at the slopes of the river, where tzars used to spend summer
13. Stalin's Bunker - a real nuclear bunker in the center of Mosc


You can choose the sight to visit:

A private car can be very much of use in this huge city. On weekdays traffic is known to be a bit complicated, but on summer weekend the streets are usually empty and we can see a lot in just one day. For example, that is how I usually plan a day with a private car for my tourists:

The Kremlin and Red Square
Novodevichy Convent
Novodevichy Cemetery
Observation platform on Sparrow Hills
Moscow State University
Park of Sculptures 'Muzeon' or Gorky Park

Kolomenskoye estate (if weather is good) or Space Museum / Tretyakov Gallery

And some typical neighborhoods of different epochs on the way

A Recent Review of this tour

Maria was an excellent tour guide. Everything was very well organized. We were met by the train, the van was waiting for us, where we can store our luggage. The tour presented must see places in Moscow, including Red Square, Kremlin, Armory, as well as several places around the city. Maria is very knowledgeable and it was very interesting for our group to learn about Russian culture, history, and city of Moscow. At the end of the tour van took us all the way to Domodedovo. Thank you!
