En route, stop for photos where you wish, and learn about Moscow’s history from your guide. Discover the stories behind the sights, and hear snippets about everyday life in today’s city.

Drive along Tverskaya Street, Moscow’s main thoroughfare, passing the monument to the city’s founder Yuri Dolgorukiy. Head for Red Square to see the Kremlin and onion-domed St. Basil’s Cathedral, and explore the old districts of Kitay Gorod and Zamoskvorechye.

View landmarks including the Bolshoi Theatre and former KGB headquarters, and admire sweeping panoramas over the city from viewpoints many visitors miss.

Admire the gleaming Christ the Savior Cathedral from Patriarch Bridge, and coast along Prechistnka Street, sometimes called Museum Street, and Ostozhenka Street, known as Moscow’s Golden Mile for its aristocratic, pre-revolutionary architecture.

Take in the spires and domes of 15th-century Novodevichy Convent, and learn about its role in Russia’s very own ‘Game of Thrones’ during the late 1600s.

Check out Patriarch Ponds, a delightful spot that featured in Mikhail Bulgakov’s novel, The Master and Margarita, and pass tree-filled Gorky Park and statue-dotted Muzeon Park.

If you wish, check out the spectacular panoramas over the Kremlin and Red Square from the rooftop O2 lounge bar.

Grab a coffee (own expense) as you gaze at the Stalinist-era Seven Sister skyscrapers, and take photos from Sparrow Hill and Poklonnaya Hill — the city’s highest viewpoints.

Finally, visit Victory Park, a complex honoring Russia’s victory over Nazi Germany, and view the Triumphal Arch and bayonet-shaped memorial Obelisk.

Your tour then finishes with an optional drop-off at your hotel, Victory Park’s Great Patriotic War Museum, or another location in the city center of your choice.
