This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bolshoi Theatre, Teatralny dr., 1, Moscow 109012 Russia

Make your own way to Bolshoi Theatre — a theatre as famous for scandal as it is ballet and opera — in central Moscow to meet your guide, and then set off on your 3.5-hour walking tour. As you walk, listen to your guide share stories of Moscow’s history, architecture, culture and politics.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Yury Dolgoruky Monument, Tverskaya Ulitsa, Moscow Russia

Stop At: Moscow Kremlin (Moskovsky Kreml), Red Square, Moscow 103073 Russia

Then, be amazed as you approach the statuesque Kremlin. Nowadays, it is the residence of the Russian president, but it dates back to the 15th century when it was constructed as a castle for the Russian Tsars. Learn of the centuries of bloodshed and corruption before heading over the Moskva River.

On the other side of the river, take a moment to marvel at the Kremlin from afar and then follow your guide to Christ the Savior Cathedral, Russia’s largest church, to learn about its fascinating legends and political protests.
Next, take a well-earned rest in a local Russian cafe (own expense). As you sip on a steaming cup of tea or coffee and nibble on a traditional handmade snack, talk with your guide about the landmarks you have just seen, or ask for some local, insider tips to help you make the most of your time in Moscow.

After 3.5 hours, your tour concludes in the city centre, just a stone’s throw from the original start point.
