Upon arrival in Moscow you will be greeted by your private guide and directed to your comfortable car/van, for a relaxing drive that will be narrated as you make your way to downtown Moscow through the outskirts and residential areas of the city. On your arrival take a break over a cup of tea and begin exploring the city.
View a unique panorama of Moscow from the Sparrow Hills, watch the changing of the guard at Alexander's Garden, stroll through the legendary Red Square - the site of many marches and celebrations during Communist times - and the famous GUM department store.

Walk along the popular Arbat Street with hundreds of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops. Learn about an architectural style dubbed "Stalin Gothic" and the skyscrapers known as 'Seven Sisters' recognizable by their tapered towers.
