Walking tours - Moscow's history

KITAY GOROD - ZAMOSKVARECHE - PETROVKA -HISTORICAL WALKS


We love discovering Moscow by foot. Even though we know the city quite well, on a walking tour with a guide you'll see&hear many interesting details which you'd never seen before and which will give you a better understanding of and appreciation for this wonderful city.


Last year we developed this succesfull walking tour series together with the local company Strelka Travel. You sign up for a series of 3 walks which will take place in May & June every other week on Tuesdays. The walks will start at 10.00 and end around 12.00. Below you'll see the dates & the high level information of the tour.


We need a minimum of 5 participants and we only have 10 spots, so please email to tips@moscowliving.org if you'd like to participate or if you have more questions.


We hope to see you on this tour!


Regular price 1500RB per walk, if you sign up for all 3 walking tours only 1300RB per walk!
