Kremlin Small-Group Tour
US$55.88
Overview
Explore what was once a bastion of Soviet secrecy — the Moscow Kremlin — on this 1.5-hour tour. Accompanied by an expert guide, stroll around the walled complex, once Moscow’s ancient citadel, to see its courtyards, churches and palaces. Hear tales of medieval Tsars and the Russian Orthodox church as you view the Grand Kremlin Palace, Senate Palace and Ivan the Great Bell Tower; see the colossal Tsar Bell, and visit Archangel’s Cathedral, the burial place of Russian royals and rulers. The tour is limited to 25 people for a small-group atmosphere.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Kutafia Tower of the Kremlin in central Moscow and set out on your 1.5-hour small-group tour.

Get an introduction to the Kremlin, learning how its walls and towers were built in the 15th century as Moscow’s citadel. By the 18th and 19th centuries, the walls enclosed palaces, churches and arsenals that today serve as museums and seat of the Russian government.

Head inside with your guide, and admire the grandeur of the Grand Kremlin Palace, once home to some of Russia’s Tsars. Continue into Ivan Square, the Kremlin’s biggest courtyard. Admire the Tsar Bell — the world’s largest — displayed here, and inspect its carved images of the Tsar Alexei and Empress Anna.

See the 16th-century Tsar Cannon, one of the largest ever made at almost 20 feet (6 meters) long, and admire the façade of the Senate Palace, currently the residence of Russia’s president.

Stroll around Cathedral Square, and visit the 15th-century Assumption Cathedral, once Russia’s main church and coronation site of the Tsars. Then, visit the beautiful 16th-century Archangel’s Cathedral, topped by five domes and home to the tombs of many medieval Tsars and princes.

Ogle the Ivan the Great Bell Tower, a 16th-century white tower that stands 266 feet (81 meters) high, and is crowned by a gleaming gold dome and cross.

Your 1.5-hour tour finishes at the imposing Borovitskaya Tower when your guide departs, leaving you free to make your exit or continue visiting other parts of the Kremlin independently.

Great tour guide

I would highly recommend this tour, it was very informative and its much better to get information about the place from an experience tour guide (we had Irena), rather than just strolling around and guessing what each building stands for. The price is reasonable and...More

Rukasna(guide) was awesome but the the tour itself

Our guide was really professional and she explained very thing in detail. She had a lot of insight abt all the places. But the tour itself was not that great and would not recommend. Bonus is we got to see Putin’s convey and chopper.
