very disappointed. This was an extremely expensive 4 hour tour in celebration of my birthday so our expectations were high. Initially we were advised that our tour would commence at 10am from our first hotel. I advised viator that we would be moving to a hotel closer to the sites so THEY changed the start time to 11am. When we arrived at the hotel at 1045am our guide was there and advised us that the tour commenced at 10am and we would have to rush to get to the Kremlin before our entry tickets expired. We almost ran to the Kremlin- so the preliminary discussions never really took place regarding the history. Once inside it was apparent that Svetlana's knowledge of the site and Russian history was excellent - but we were flustered and busting for a loo on the rush there... so it took a while to get back into the mood of the amazing sites before us. The tour then completed at the 3 hour mark with our guide advising us of the location of things in Red Square and the timing of the changing of the guard. There was no need for the climate controlled vehicle promised in the brochure and obviously costed to us. Overall - should have just bought Kremlin entry tickets 10 and read the Lonely Planet Guide - would have saved over 600!!
