This is all you need! Once you're in, you get the guided tour and afterwards, you're free to wander about! Just what I expected. The guide was great!

The tour guide was very attentive to the needs of the group, and explained the buildings and historical significance of the Kremlin in very good detail. A good way to experience the Kremlin in a few hours.

Great tours with knowledgeable, humorous and engaging guides
We booked for the Kremlin tour and we're not disappointed. Our guide Elena was wonderful and made the whole experience very enjoyable. We got so much more out of the visit than we would have if we had gone around on our own. She knew so much about the places we visited and brought their history to life. As a result if how much we enjoyed the tour we booked the Metro tour as well. This time our guide was Irina and I would repeat everything I have relayed above. In addition to the quality of the tours there was great communication from the company beforehand. I would strongly recommend this company.

A fascinating experience, a great tour guide who was very interesting and knowledgeable and helpful. The Moscow Metro is amazing in a number of ways and this tour makes that clear. A great time.

I recently had the pleasure of a mini weekend break in Moscow covering the last weekend in September. I've always heard about the Moscow Metro and seen pictures on the web but wanted to experience it for myself. I booked this trip through trip advisor and headed off. I can honestly say that Elena (our tour guide) was fantastic. Very friendly, very knowledgeable, spoke great English, and just made the tour really enjoyable. The tour lasts 1.5 hours and covers 7 stunning stations. I would honestly recommend this trip to anyone.

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.

We had an amazing tour on July 15, we walked by the major places of Moscow city center, there was enough time to chat with other participants and to listen to interesting facts concerning Russian history. This is one of the first tours where my 11 y.o. sister was not bored at all, many thanks to the organizers!!

Great tour around some of the less touristy Moscow sites with a lovely guide who was very friendly and engaging. This was my first day in Moscow and it gave me a lovely introduction to the city and it's history. Highly recommend.

Very interesting trip with a very nice guide. Julia was very knowledgeable on the places that we went. She was very interesting and very engaging. I know that without her I would not have seen half of what I did. I can't thank her enough for the tour.
BY ROBERT / TOURSBYLOCALS • October 24, 2017
Julia was very helpful. She spent time going over everything I expected for the day and went quite a bit beyond that and added other attractions that she picked were in my interest. Good listeners and engaged conversation where she added much history. She was not a fan of some uses of the travel book referencing, but it all worked out well. Very good English language.

Julia was a wonderful guide. She made sure we saw everything, and is very knowledgeable about Moscow history. Coordinating the tour was easy, and Julia handled everything so it went smoothly. I would highly recommend taking a tour with her.

Moscow Kremlin tour
Vera is a dream guide. She is very knowledgeable, very friendly, fun, helpful and her English is excellent. We had a very interesting and engaging conversation about Russian history, culture, politics and local life. She answered all my questions and was so personable and, you know, like a local friend really. So happy I chose Friendly Local Guides!

Local guides than know and love their city, a must if you want to feel your tour
If you haven't met Vera in Moscow or Valerie in St. Petersburg, you will have lost the opportunity to feel the essence of the Red Square and the Kremlin complex, and its glorious cathedrals, or the intense charm of St. Isaacs, the Bronze Horseman and fortress, respectively. When you commit to a 4 hour plus tour with a stranger, you need that person to feel your level of interest on that day, commmunicate effectively in your native language, and to exude intense joy and love for their city and country. Alina, whom runs the organization, could not be more attentive to your needs and clearly has vetted out some amazingly well educated, classy and effective touring professionals. Bravo Friendly Local Guides!
