Arriving at Red Square, take in the city’s most iconic buildings—St. Basil’s Cathedral, built by Ivan the Terrible in 1561, and the Kremlin, a  fortress dating back to the 14th century and current home to the Russian president. Both are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Also check out Lenin’s Mausoleum, home to the mummified body of the former Soviet leader and GUM, Russia’s largest and most luxurious department store.

This was so much more than a walking tour. My guide, Daya was fantastic company. I got to see places only a local would know. It was more like a walk with a friend. One of the best walking tours I have done.
