The company and in particular Maxim our guide were excellent. Maxim was on time and exceedingly knowledgeable of the Kremlin. He efficiently got us through the system and the crowds. Providing a good commentary along the way. Highly helpful introduction to the complex.

Description

The Kremlin is the heart of Moscow and has always been associated with the Russian Government.

Get to know the history of the Kremlin grounds and visit three of its cathedrals on a fascinating 2-hour tour.

First, we will head to the 16th-century Cathedral of the Archangel. See how it unites traditional Russian architecture with elements characteristic of the Italian Renaissance, and visit burial places of Moscow’s tsars and princes throughout the centuries.

Next, we will move on to the 15th-century Cathedral of the Annunciation, once a place of worship for tsars and the royal family, and a venue for wedding ceremonies and christenings. Admire the many works of art it houses, including frescoes that date back to 1508.

We will then visit the Uspensky Cathedral, also known as the Assumption Cathedral. Built in 1551, it’s a masterpiece by the Italian architect Aristotele Fioravanti.

Finally, we will admire the exterior of the Patriarch’s Palace, now a museum dedicated to the art and lifestyle of 17th-century Russia.

Hassle free way to see the Hermitage on your own
We had been to the Hermitage before, but since our friends went on a guided tour with the same conpany, we opted for the skip-the-line tickets. And boy, were we happy, seeing the humongous line outside the Winter Palace. We were taken in with the guided tour group and then we continued on our own.
A very knowledgeable guide
Olga was extremely professional and posssesed a wealth of knowledge which she was able to impart with us throughout the tour. I couldn't have done the visit so efficiently if i were alone. Because she knew not only about art and architecture, she was also extremely adept at guiding us in the most efficient way by taking us to less crowded area first and being flexible. There was a family with an infant who showed up late, but she handleded it graciously. The only "problem" was the extra time it took to get inside, as there seemed have confusion as to which group gets to go first. To me it was no such big deal, but some people might have become impatient. Overall, I'm very satisfied. Thank you Olga!
Loved the show
Nice folklore show. Great dancers and singers. The only problem is the hall. You should come early and get the first seats of you want to see it all
