What a tour. Our Russian guide from Viking river Cruises provided many stories to keep us updated on the Kremlin.

THe Kremlinis really unique and you should really try to visit it. The churches there are marvellous and you should allow yourself some time to study the many details. Visiting the armour palace is also a very good investment of time.

The Kremlin has so many beautiful cathedrals that a trip to Moscow would not be complete without a visit. Plan to spend the good part of a day if you want to see it all.

Booking online ahead of time is a wise move to save time and to guarantee seeing the additional attractions such as the Armoury. It was easy and safe. We were lucky enough to see a parade with soldiers, horses and a band which brought the whole place to life. The collections and artefacts in and around the churches and The... More

When entering the kremlin it was very impressive. If visiting moscow it is a sight not to be missed. Full of history, be sure you have a guide as it is full of history.

Living in the west, this place has a bad reputation but it was peaceful with great architecture. (Without the pollies.)

Make sure you get a guide as the place is huge and places like the armoury museum have so much stuff in them that the guide can show you the big hitters within. Lenin's tomb interesting. The churches are very opulent as well

Dear Gate1 Travel, Lori & I enjoyed a wonderful 10-day holiday! Each site visited along the way was remarkable & the on board activities were entertaining-- I really relished the vodka tasting. It started in St. Petersburg & ended in Moscow at The Kremlin. Our group's escorts, Tanya & Katja, were excellent. They both should receive marks of "outstanding". Lori... More

This is really amazing place, you need one day for it and good lunch after all. So many churches, courts, squares that you absolutely must see. If you have opportunity visit it during orthodox Easter, it's crowded but beautiful! You will need guide, because there are a lot of stories that you must hear! Fairy tales and historic facts, both... More
