Three different routes, though Viator shows only two routes. Don't miss orange route to VDKNh and Cosmonautics museum.Visit Lenin memorial Park really amazing 16 ladies fountain behind. Hop on Hop off bus connects all historical and modern Moscow with easy and convenient connectivity. Enjoy lovely narration in your preferred language while tarvelling past landmarks with history!

We got there very early in the morning and was very tired. So this was a great way to get acquainted with the city! It was a very hot day as well which was unusual I think and nice to relax and stay out of the hot sun! We enjoyed this tour very much!

The hop-on hop-off tour is a great way to cover the vast territory of Moscow from the campus of Moscow State University on the heights overlooking the Moscow River to the heart of Red Square. It was nice not having to navigate the maze of Moscow's efficient metro system and be bused from from major tourist site to another. The opportunity to combine the two options, one in the immediate neighborhood of the Kremlin and the other ranging widely through out the metropolis provided us with a most satisfying grasp of this fascinating city.

O passeio permite conhecer os principais pontos turísticos de Moscou e pode-se descer e fotografar à vontade até a passagem do próximo ônibus. Os guias são educados e prestativos dentro das possibilidades do seu serviço.

Great tour! very recommendable, the only thing is that we paid two-day tickets but apparently the one-day ticket would have allowed the second day anyway, not 100 sure though. We anyway used it during one day only so I'd say one day is enough.

Moscow is a charming city

We were able to board a bus almost immediately. Condition of bus was fine and the audio jacks worked and was easy to understand. Downside is that Moscow traffic around the Kremlin area is VERY congested and bus was caught in standstill traffic. Reasonable price for bus compared to other countries in Europe.

Very nice tour to see the sight ,though the language was in Russian.I was more admiring the city and taking pictures.Problem I called several times it took 2 hours for the guy to respond on the phone to tell me the exact place to catch the bus.

Enjoyed the bus tours, I didn't have time to take in the river cruise, as Moscow is such a beautiful city, loads to see, you'll need to go round twice to take in all the beautiful buildings. The commentary was very good and insync, the steward was very helpful, only downside being the Moscow traffic jams
