This tour of Moscow will start with the Bolshoi Theater, an iconic neo-Classical building with a unique place in Russian culture, which has recently been restored to its original 19th century grandeur. You will marvel at the lavish interior, and see where Chaliapin sang, Nijinsky and Ulanova danced, and Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff conducted their work. You will also see other parts of the theater’s interior, including the luxurious foyer, the rehearsal rooms, and the famous state salon, once reserved for members of the imperial family and their guests.
This will be followed by a pedestrian excursion around Moscow’s historic city centre - you will see Red Square, the Kremlin Walls, saint Basil’s Cathedral, GUM, the Alexander Gardens, and much more.
Then, after a delicious lunch in a traditional Russian restaurant, we will take you on a cruise along the Moscow river on one of the luxurious Radisson river boats. Enjoy a drink in the comfortable lounge or sit on the open top deck and enjoy the sight of the city’s famous sights gliding past you: the Kremlin and White House, Novodevichy Convent and Moscow State University, Gorky Park and the densely-wooded Neskuchny Gardens. Far away from the traffic and crowds, this is the most relaxing way to discover the beauties of this great city.
