About
Explore Moscow by night on this fun 3-hour private tour! Take a night walk around historical Old Town as you view the night lights of the city. Experience the city with 870-year history magically lit up at night. Grab a coffee in one of the cozy cafes on trendy Kamergersky lane and see what makes Moscow home to the largest number of billionaires in the world. Moscow is as big as London and New York City combined, and it has 837 churches! See the Christ the Savior Cathedral and St Basil's Cathedral in all its domed and glittery glory. Take in the Patriarschy Bridge waterfront panorama and great views of Kremlin, Red October chocolate factory, a monument to Peter I, new building of Tretyakov Gallery, and green urban oasis - Park Muzeon. Your guide will also bring you to the Sparrow Hills observation deck and Moscow State University to soak in even more history and vibe.

What to expect

View the city lights along Tverskaya Street and thoroughfares like Kamergersky Lane and Petrovka Street, and admire the floodlit Christ the Saviour Cathedral as you hear about its strange past. Savor the city skyline from Patriarch Bridge and gaze out at the 1950s-built Seven Sisters skyscrapers from Sparrow Hills near Moscow State University as you hear their, and the university’s, history. If you wish, explore Arbat, a hub of arty galleries and bohemian cafes, and enjoy a drink (own expense) at one of its stylish bars. Your tour ends when your guide leaves you in the city center or drops you at your hotel, depending on your wishes.

What a lovely evening. It was just the right amount of time and the views and the night lights were breath taking. I took what seemed to be a million pictures. My guide, Leysan, was kind and thoughtful. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Anastasia was excellent. Could not have asked for a better tour. Very friendly and went out of her way to come get me as I wasn't comfortable traveling to city center by myself. Got to see all of the sites and she did a great job explaining all the sites and was a pleasure to be with. Thanks!

Julia Krychevish is an excellent guide. She taught me a lot about Russia and its components. She taught me history about important monuments in downtown around red square and other places in Moscow.

I booked the tour the first night I was in Moscow. I was on a business trip but had some spare time to go tourist. The guide Alina picked me up at the hotel and started the tour with a Metro ride from. The Metro is worth a visit, and she picked out some interesting stations. A long walk through the city centre gave a good overview of the main Moscow landmarks. Aline adapted the tour as were walking, taking me to places that interested me. She gave me enough tips for thing to visit the next days.
On the downside, we had some longer silences where I had the feeling she didn’t really had anything to tell, unless I had a question myself.
If you’re in Moscow for the first time and you don't have time for an elaborate tour. I would recommend the Moscow by night tour.

Thank you for this observation, we'll definitely talk to this guide and ask her to tell more stories in between landmarks. Thank you and you're very welcome on our tours again! We'll be happy to give you a discount on your next tour to make it up to you for those longer silences than you expected on tour.

This has to be one of the best tours I have been on by myself thanks to Nick. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Moscow. He gave a lot of insights on the past and present of Russia. He also talked a little about himself which made it more enjoyable and exciting. I also had the chance to ride the metro and visited the Red Square, Kremlin, St. Basil, GUM etc. It was awesome! I highly recommend this tour and to also book it with Nick. Trust me you will love the experience.

Booked a tour the very first day I arrived in Moscow. My tour guide was a funny, smart, and very enthusiastic lady named Elena. She was extremely knowledgeable about the city and her love of this city made me even more excited to visit. She truly loves what she does and would definitely recommend this tour to get yourself familiar with this amazing city. Thank you very much Elena, dreams do come true. Thanks for making my first time experience in Moscow, a truly memorable one!

We had an adorable young woman guide us around all the easy sights near red square. She spoke great English and was very knowledgeable about anything. Got her through Expedia and it was well worth it.

I would like to give my warmest thanks to my guide Maria for such a great visit
I really had a great time.

We visited plenty of places I probably wouldn't have visited on my own and she had a lot of great stories and information for each place.

She is very knowledgeable on the history of the diferent places, the architechture and on all the cultural aspects

On top of everything, she has been incredibly nice, making feel to the lonely traveler I am, that I was visiting cool places and having good time with a friend.

Thank you again
Pierre

You will see a different side of Moscow in the night, as along as you have picked the right guide to show you around. There's a lot of character to this city and a high energy, well informed tour guide is what you need.
