For more than 70 years Moscow was the capital of the huge Soviet empire. The streets of the city are still full of remnants of the communist regime and the Cold War, and the fearsome Soviet strongholds still guard the young democracy in Russia.

Discover hidden pages of the Soviet history from the Great October Revolution to Perestroika, from Lenin to Gorbachev. We will speak about the Great Terror under Stalin, the GULAG system, secret KGB prison and how people lived in the Soviet Union.

Friendly and informative
Our guide was friendly and informative, and the tour was just the right length and amount of information for everyone to find it enjoyable without being too much. We had history buffs and beginners so it was a good balance!
Great guide
Irena was very knowledgable and had a sense of humour. It was a nice small tour group and I learnt alot about Moscow's history.
The guide Ana was fantastic, really good English, very interesting information, very open for all questions, not rushed at all and besides the standard places also very interesting spots which you can not find yourselves!
We started out across the street from the building that was the KGB headquarters in Soviet times. Our tour guide had excellent English and a strong passion for the subject matter. She showed us a building that was being renovated and was the place where 40,000 Russians were sentenced to death. She pointed out details about the different views of Soviet times among Russians. She recommended that we go to the Museum of Contemporary History we went there the next day that was helped to complete the overview of this subject matter.
MARINA was the perfect ambassador for Moscow
Our Tour Guide was MARINA. Her English and stories were so good with also a lot of humor, that we booked all the tours with MARINA. We can really say that because of these tours we have had a super super time in Moskow. Thank you, Moscow Free Tour and of course Marina.
