Guided Walking Tours Moscow
|Orientation walking city tour of central sights of Moscow.
For those taking one of our packages that includes a 3 hour walking tour, here are some details. You will also see details of a 6 hour walking tour programme that you can add to other days in either Moscow, or St Petersburg.
Please note this tour 'views', but does not enter
museums, or monuments as time does not allow this. It is designed as an
orientation tour to both major sites and the public transport system.
Our guide will take you on a personally guided tour of the city center. This is a walking tour, which also uses public transport. You will be shown the magnificent underground stations of the METRO as well as the classics such as Red Square and the Kremlin.
No picture can prepare you for the ancient St.Basil's Cathedral which rises like a fairy tale from the Eastern part of the Red Square, You will also observe the walls of Moscow Kremlin, Alexander Gardens, GUM department store and the red granite mausoleum, which holds Lenin's embalmed body, Manezhnaya Square, Moscow State Duma, and the busy Tverskaya Street. Also included will be the former headquarters of the KGB, Okhotny Ryad prospect, Teatralnaya square, Bolshoi Theater, Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the largest Lenin's library, and the pedestrian Arbat Street.
Our guides work out the best ‘movement’ solution based on what you want to see, the time of day and the condition of the traffic. Large distances can be covered by the underground in quick time. The trolley bus system can also be used as they can avoid some of the traffic problems cars have to endure. Otherwise, walking is the best way to get close to something of interest. If the guide thinks a ‘taxi’ is the best solution for the next stage, he or she can flag down an appropriate car and knows the price to pay for the distance and so avoids the ‘foreigners’ price. You will be expected to pay for any transport taken when on a walking tour (unless otherwise stated), but this is a minor amount.
