A bit of history, a bit of architecture and a lot of FUN ;)
On this tour we'll do main sights combined with some off-the-beaten-path places, the choice depends on your preferences.
Red Square, GUM, Lenin's Mausoleum, Kazan Cathedral
Fabulous Red Square and Alexander Garden is the focal point and a traveller's fantasy stop. Definitely got to be visited during the evening, when it is incredibly lit up!
St. Basil's Cathedral
Truly iconic sight on Red Square shaped as a huge flamed bonfire. This beauty is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Cultural, political and historical centre of whole country. Tsar Bell and Tsar Cannon, the largest cannon and the largest bell on the planet.
Manege Square, Alexander Garden, Tverskaya street, Eliseev Emporium, Bolshoi Theater, Kitay Gorod Wall.

Alina was absolutely fantastic guide. As we only had 1 full day in Moscow, she showed us all the sites and was extremely knowledgeable. She was so lovely and very engaging. There was not one question that Alina did not know the answer to and was so informed about all aspects of Russian history and life in Russia overall. I will absolutely recommend her to anyone visiting Moscow. It was the best day we had.
