Moscow City Tour Excursion Reviews

Due to language and cultural differences, Moscow can be a challenging city for travelers. For first-time visitors, a Moscow city tour is ideal. A knowledgeable guide will lead visitors through many of the city's most important cultural and historic sights.
Should have booked the walking tour it was sometimes dificult to see from the bus

Our experience may not be typical because the World Cup was ongoing and the FIFA crowds were huge and enthusiastic. We loved Moscow and walked around on our own after the walking tour (we put in over 8 miles that day), using the Metro to return to the boat on our own. We loved Moscow and St Petersburg so much that we are already planning a return trip on our own. On the walking tours, be prepared to walk! Read Less

Originally booked on the walking tour, but changed the day before as had been doing too much walking. We still saw the same things and did not spend much time on the coach, which was good.

This was a City tour at night offered Viking. It was free because we missed an earlier port due to icy lake conditions. A great way to see the city, inculded a boat tour through the canals.

After taking the subway from our ship, we walked through the artistic sections of the subway seeing the bronze work, tile art, and much more. Toured Red Square, had time at GUM department stores, and walked along the Moska river, stopping at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. The pace was good, and not hard walking. Read Less

I enjoyed Red Square. Not of a nature to go shopping at a high-end shopping mall, but Red Square itself was huge and diverse and fun to just be in. Got to see St Basil's from a distance....looks as good as in the pictures... Also enjoyed the tourist stand right outside the square, and the food displays that were based on a 19th(?) century Italian painter's painting of a face made of food. Incredibly clever. Wish I had been told about the underground shopping mall adjacent to Red Square instead of GUM. It was fun to see GUM given it's history, but I would have been far more interested shopping somewhere that regular Russians shop instead of the high end. There really wasn't much time to shop anyway.I recall a stop to use the bathroom, where workers were planting flowers, and the bathroom was free. I found it bizarre that the stall doors started at the waist.... I also enjoyed seeing the University of Moscow, with the view of the main part of the city, the ski jump on the river, the convent, a local bikers group were there, also the wonderful Sparrow Hill manhole covers, and the mysterious highrise university itself, in the fading light.

We were shown the highlights on a coach tour. Negotiating Moscow traffic was an experience in itself! We also experienced a short trip on the Metro before having free time around Red Square.
