Kremlin and its treasuries of Armoury Chamber and Diamond Fund are impressive while recognizing an important notice that scheduled 3m4 hours are enough only for getting only a general and initial (though very inspiring !) impression. Nice as introductory tour in order to recognize that Armoury Chamber must be visited later for much more hours with a professional guide to continue further uncovering its mysteries and adore this fantastic and diverse exhibition !

Very enjoyable tour

Our guide Ekaterina ("Kate") met us promptly at our hotel and accompanied us to the Kremlin on the metro. Here one of her colleagues met us with the necessary tickets meaning there was no need to queue up or wait. Kate had great knowledge of the history of the Kremlin and was able to answer all our questions. We visited Cathedral Square, the Gardens, the Armoury museum and the Diamond fund and found the whole tour really enjoyable. After the tour Kate helped us find a reasonably priced restaurants and gave us some great tips on other places to eat and drink in the city. We really enjoyed her company and have no hesitation in recommending her and the company.

This tour was the perfect way to kick off our stay in Moscow. Ekaterina met us at our hotel and walked us to the Metro station. On the way, she pointed out a small grocery store which was so helpful. She also showed us how to use the Metro system and some of the beautiful stations that were on our route. The tour of the Kremlin was very informative and Ekaterina knew how to navigate the lines so that our wait was minimal. She was very knowledgeable and could answer all of our questions. I highly recommend this tour and Ekaterina!
