Nice tour but should have updates on timings about other free passages inside Kremlin and Red Square , as of ot is an introductory tour. Audio Guide should be Included in Armoury Chamber. Otherwise very good Place to See and spend time. It takes around 3 days to see entire Kremlin and Red Square churches , Exhibitions and Tombs

Gorgeous (the mobile guide (application) is wonderful. The audio guide (which is "in place") is weaker !! Well, it's a pity that tickets sold out 1-2 weeks in advance.

Alexander did an amazing job in this busy and loud environment. The Views and stories are stunning! Thank you so much!
