Useful trip notes

  • You don't have to follow the order of days indicated in our itinerary. If you want to have a 2-day tour of Moscow, you can choose any two days from our itinerary that you like, for example, day one and day three.
  • We usually start our tours at 10 am, but we can meet you earlier or later upon request. However, it's better to avoid morning (8 am to 10 am ) rush-hour traffic and crowds in Moscow metro during the week.
  • Kremlin grounds, Tretyakov gallery, and the Trinity Monastery are accessible for wheelchair users while the Moscow metro is not. If you have difficulty climbing steps, our manager will help you modify your itinerary slightly to make the most of your three days in Moscow.
  • Moscow 3-day tour itinerary indicates the beginning and the end of your tour in the hotel lobby. We might also pick you up and drop you off at any convenient location.
