“Best view of Moscow!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I am a big fan of experiencing cities from the waterways that run through them. In my opinion, it's a must do for every city that offers the option. We did the cruise at night and had a great time. We didn't know that it was a dining option only, so we were a little bit surprised when we had no choice but to be seated at a table to dine. I thought that it was optional. We took a late night river cruise, so we had dinner with friends before that and it was a bit awkward ordering only drinks and an appetizer. They offer you to sit outside if you don't want to dine, but on a cold September night that's not really an option. Other than that, it's a great way to see Moscow at night. Next time we are going to reserve the midday option and eat lunch while cruising. It would be nice to be able to take some pictures from the top deck during day light. It's a great activity overall!

“Good option to explore Moscow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Have been on this cruise for a few times by now mainly with visitors. Great cruise and great yacht. You can buy tickets over internet, vending machines and ticket offices (quite convenient having the development level of Moscow). Food is good but nothing special. Great if you want to make great pictures of Moscow (in front of St. Basels, Red Squire and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior) Could be quite chilly if you stay on the upper deck to make pics and see Moscow (even it is +25C outside)
Good value for money.

“excellent cruises, not good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The cruises gives you a wonderful opportunity to see some of the most spectacular parts of Moscow in a relaxed way, floating along the river. Food and drinks are served, but alas, the entrees are not of high quality, and definitely not worth the price. The cruise itself, however, was well worth the money, especially the one we took in the evening.

“Great view of Moscow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Very easy way to see the best of Moscow by sitting at a restaurant table with good food and wine. Strongly recommended at dinner time, when you can see the sunset and all buildings lighting up when the dark comes

“perfect way to see Moscow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

This is a very nice way to see Moscow: the boat is very comfortable, with a lot of wiindows and light coming through. It is set up as a restaurant with different size tables. We only had a drink ande some light food (italian cheese and cold cuts platter), all of which was very good. Service also good. The boat was impeccably clean (including the restrooms). The cruise was int he afternoon, with some music in the background but not too loud. All in all, a very pleasant way to see Moscow.
