Tour description

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.

Bolshoi Theatre
One of the largest theatres in Russia and one of the most significant in the world of opera and ballet. In action since 1825, the Bolshoi firmly holds its position as the leading cultural establishment in Russia. Mos-Tour offers both walking tours (that include views of the Bolshoi) and guided excursions behind the scene!
Red Square
The famous square has been the setting or numerous ceremonies, and Tsar’s orders were announced here since the 16th century. In 1945, the WW II victory parade took place here. The Mausoleum was constructed both as a resting place for Vladimir Lenin, the USSR founder, and as a tribune to the communist leaders.
Alexander Garden
A park, located at the western wall of the Moscow Kremlin. It stretches from the Revolyutsii Square to the Kremlin Embankment. The park was founded in 1812. The park consists of three parts: the Upper, Middle and Lower Gardens. It features such historical objects as the Kremlin's Kutafya Tower, the Italian Grotto, the obelisk in honor of the 300th Anniversary of the House of Romanov and more. The Post #1 of the Honor Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier has been located here since 1997.
Upper Trading Rows (GUM)
The State Department Store is a shopping mall which houses about a hundred premium class stores, cafes, and restaurants. This is the best-known shopping centre in Russia, and it has been an integral part of the architectural ensemble of Red Square for over a century. The GUM’s front facade marks its boundary opposite the Kremlin. The store itself is also a monument of Russian Art Nouveau architecture, which makes a walk along its arcades a pleasure to luxury shopping lovers and art connoisseurs alike.
Kutafya Tower
The Kutafya Tower is an outlying barbican tower of the Moscow Kremlin. It was built in the early 16th century to protect the bridge over the Neglinnaya River leading to the Troitskaya Tower. The Kutafya Tower had two combat tiers (the divider between them was destroyed in 1780); the upper landing was equipped with gun-slots for plunging fire at the enemy at the foot of the tower.
