The meeting point (at the time of this review) is undergoing construction and is covered in tarpaulin- we completely missed it and ended up 15minutes late- things like this should be updated on the meeting point instructions. Apart that the tour was very good and Andre our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. The churches you will see are very small inside and swamped with Chinese tourists- be patient is all I can say, and go to the church with the smallest or no queue first. You will exit past the armoury and diamond place, maybe consider adding these on as an additional tour as it will save you having to renter at another date.

Unmissable visit, the site steeped in history, imposes by the presence of the place. We walk alongside the forecourt of one of the most influential in this world, his residence seems to be the extension of an arm that has stood the test of time, but which has often held the baton of the conductor of this world. the story continues.

We had a very nice and informative tour of the Kremlin grounds in sunny weather at the beginning of April this year. The tour guide Evgeniya was very friendly, had in-depth knowledge and conveyed it in an exciting way in good German. She also gave us valuable tips for our future stay in Moscow. We are pleasantly surprised and would highly recommend them.
