Planning Your Visit
How many days do I need in Moscow?
Three days is enough time to take in all the sights, but you can certainly add an extra day to enjoy a little more leisure time.
How to get to Moscow
Domodedovo Airport is the main gateway to and from the city. Most visitors to Russia will need a tourist visa, so check well before you travel.
What's in a Moscow Mule?
This classic cocktail, containing vodka and ginger beer, was actually invented in California, not Moscow, so tourists looking for an authentic version will be searching for some time. But in Russia, drinking vodka is somewhat of a national pastime, so the city offers plenty of chi chi cocktail bars and nightclubs where you can get a true local's experience: great vodka, over ice.

What people are saying about Moscow
Our Banya and Sergiev Posad experience was incredible!!! Both our tour guides, Sergey & Andrew was very friendly, timely, and super easy to get along with. They told us about the history,folklore, and traditions concerning the places and activities we were getting involved with. The food was also very local Russian and was delicious. Was definitely a very informative, yet extremely relaxing experience for us in Russia. One of our highlights for sure!!!
During the time of our travel, there wasn't any snow in Moscow. However, our tour guides, Sergio & Ksenia, adjusted the activity to be a forest ATV Safari! It ended up being such a blast as we powered through rough forest terrain, mud, and ditches with some very large ATVs! It was some serious fun and we all enjoyed every bit of it.
Vladimir, our guide made this visit to the Kremlin and the Metro stations a truly unforgetable experience. He was eager to answer all our questions and tireless along the whole event. THANK YOU VLADIMIR!!!!
Vladimir was an excellent, engaged & interesting guide. We would definitely recommend him!
Easy to get around the city to see the landmarks with great audio descriptions.
