Itinerary

Day 1

Moscow

Sunday. Welcome to Moscow and the start of your long weekend! Upon arrival you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel for check-in. This evening meet the rest of your group for dinner at the hotel and an informative welcome meeting.
Overnight: Moscow  |  Dinner

Day 2

Red Square & the Kremlin

Start the day with a ride on the Moscow Metro to Red Square. Quite unlike any other underground transport system in the world, many of the stations here offer an air of elegance with huge chandeliers, incredible mosaics, soaring ceilings and monumental sculptures. As the historical, political and social heart of Moscow, this famous square is home to some of the city’s most recognisable landmarks. Within Red Square is spectacular St Basil’s Cathedral with its brightly coloured onion domed roof and the glitzy and historic GUM shopping mall. On one side of the square are the imposing red brick walls of the Kremlin and a highlight of the day is a guided tour around the Kremlin grounds, where we will see the Assumption Cathedral, Ivan the Great Bell Tower and the monumental Tsar Bell. Also in Red Square, housed within a red and black marble building, is Lenin's Mausoleum. If open, we can enter the mausoleum free of charge and pay our respects to the grandfather of Communism whose embalmed body has lain in state here since his death.

Spend the rest of the day at leisure. During our stay in Moscow there will be the opportunity to book optional evening excursions, such as a traditional Cossack Show or a Moscow by Night coach tour. and river cruise. All optional excursions are subject to availability (booked and pay locally).
Overnight: Moscow  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3

Free day or optional Bunker

Today is free to independently explore or there's an optional guided tour of a Cold War Soviet bunker. Head 65 meters underground to explore a Stalinist-era bunker that up until recently was a top secret symbol of Soviet Power. Cleverly hidden beneath an ordinary apartment building, on a busy street in the heart of Moscow, 18 floors below ground level, this mighty 75,000 square foot facility was constructed in secret in the 1950’s, to protect the select few against a US nuclear attack. This optional excursion also includes a tour of some of the finest metro stations ever built. Dating back to the Stalinist era these extravagant specimens dazzle with marble pillars and chandeliers.
Overnight: Moscow  |  Breakfast

Day 4

Goodbye Moscow

Tuesday. Our tour comes to an end after breakfast. Spend the morning buying those last few souvenirs in the nearby Izmailovo Market before hotel check out at 12 noon. It may not look like it from the outside, but behind the whimsically decorated walls of Izmailovo you’ll find one of the best markets in Moscow. Whether you want to pick up some tacky souvenirs, genuine fur hats or some traditional handmade crafts this is the place to go. Just don't forget to bargain!

Tour Add-ons

Enhance your trip with these amazing added extras and add-ons

Had a great tour with my son. We had a few issues with delayed flights into Moscow and Bella did a fantastic job of ensuring we still had somebody to meet us at the airport. Hotel was comfortable although food was a bit average. Our guide on day 2 (Sergei) was very knowledgeable and helped us get last minutes tickets to the ballet which we had not anticipated being able to get.

My Son and I would like to say a big thank you to Mikhail who showed us around on the 3rd day we really do appreciate his time and he made us feel most welcome in Moscow and made sure we got to see all the sites we wanted to see. We would recommend Bella and her team and the 4 day tour if you only have a couple of days free to visit Moscow.
