    Itinerary

    : Day 1 – Welcome to Moscow, Russia

    On arrival at the airport or rail station, you’ll be warmly greeted and chauffeured to the Baltschug Kempinski and check into your luxurious room overlooking the Kremlin.

    : Day 2 – Privately Guided Sightseeing

    After breakfast, our educated native-born guide will be waiting to introduce you to the venerated landmarks, history and vibrant culture of the Russian capital. Traveling in comfort with your own personal car and driver, your privately guided city tour begins along the Sofia Embankment. Stretching along the Moskva River in the heart of the capital, this is a great place to take in the city skyline including the Kremlin. Continue past the imposing Pushkin Museum, set in a historic building completed in 1912, and visit the Cathedral of Christ the Savior; rebuilt less than 20 years ago after the destruction of the original 19th-century church, it is one of the largest Orthodox cathedrals in the world! Admire the towering monument to Peter the Great and drive past Gorky Park, a popular attraction for families. Admire the stately façade and glittering golden domes of Novodevichy Convent as your engaging erudite guide offers insight into its colorful history. Then ascend into the Sparrow Hills for breathtaking views over Moscow. As you make your way into the historic heart of the city, you’ll pass by other landmarks including the 19th-century Triumphal Arch commemorating Russia’s victory over Napoleon, the famed Bolshoi Theater, and the former KGB Building.  Your morning ends with a guided tour of Red Square, surrounded by some of Moscow’s most notable buildings including the GUM Department Store, the State Historical Museum with its impressive red-brick façade, the colorful onion-shaped domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral, and the monumental eastern wall of the Kremlin.   In the afternoon, your private sightseeing continues as your guide leads within the imposing walls of the Kremlin. Kremlin means, quite simply, “fortress” or “citadel” in Russian - and there are many kremlins throughout Russia! But “The Kremlin” here in the heart of Moscow atop Borovitsky Hill is the most famous and grandest of them all. Your tour of the extensive Kremlin grounds includes Cathedral Square where you’ll enjoy a guide visit inside one of these historic medieval churches.  The highlight of your afternoon here is sure to be the Kremlin Armory Museum, home to a dazzling collection of Imperial memorabilia including gold-gilded carriages, coronation robes, bejeweled crowns, the thrones of once-mighty Czars, and a large case filled with priceless Faberge Eggs! After sightseeing, you’ll be escorted back to your hotel for a free evening.  Meals B

    : Day 3 – A Day at Leisure

    This day is yours to enjoy as you wish. There is so much to see and do in and around St. Moscow, and additional private sightseeing can be arranged. Among the places you can visit with a private guide are the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Gulag History Museum, Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center or Kolomenskoye Estate.  Meals B

    : Day 4 – Depart Moscow

    After breakfast, your private car and driver will escort you to the airport or rail station for your onward journey.  Meals B

    Our guide, Lyuba, and our driver, Misha, were wonderful. They were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and had great ideas for off-the-beaten-path areas and sites to explore. They made the trip very special. The hotel (the Marriott Aurora) was fabulous - comfortable, great location (very easy walk to all the sites), good bar, and very helpful staff. I can't think of a better place to stay when in Moscow.

    I chose the small group China Sampler and paid in full in December 2018 for the April 2020 departure to get the $300 discount. After that it was just waiting and waiting and waiting. I was looking to start making airline flight plans to and return from China in April 2019. But when my travel agent contacted A&R she discovered that I was the only one signed up for the small group tour. This continued through the remainder of 2019. I actually called A&R direct one day to find out what was going on. I was then told about the 90 day out policy before they would cancel the trip. I asked a couple of times through my travel agent if A&R could just go ahead and cancel out the tour and refund my money, but was told there might be some last minute people to sign up for a trip to China. So basically A&R had my $5,000 plus fully paid fee to invest and use as they chose for over a year. January 10 or 20 was the 90 day before date I was told when a decision would be made to cancel. On January 9th I checked the website of A&R and saw by the small group tour for April 9-19 the words "Sold Out". So I'm thinking "Oh, maybe they did get enough last minute people to go?" So I sent my travel agent info on what airline flights I would like to take to China and back. The next day I was sent an email from my agent letting me know that A&R had cancelled the April small group trip to China for the dates I had selected. So the "Sold Out" descriptor apparently was an attempt to save face by not admitting they could not fill the small group trip with enough people to make the trip happen. Not a very "transparent" policy. About a month before A&R did offer to have me join the May China Sampler trip, but those dates did not meet my travel plans. I never received an apology directly from A&R. No offer for a discount on a future tour, nothing. Last time I will ever consider A&R for any type of tour.
