As you stroll around this must-see square, you'll see St. Basil's Cathedral with its colorful façade, the Kremlin, GUM Department Store and State Historical Museum.

  • I was very disappointed with the standard of the tour. The guide had no structure or plan and we had to remind him of the main attractions listed in the description on the website. He's English wasn't very good and he couldn't answer basic question. I would not recommend this tour to anyone.
