Customer Reviews about Izmailovo Kremlin
  • Thoroughly recommend this tour especially the vintage section- take your time to really go through the stalls and you will be sure to take home some precious memories and trinkets. I was very tempted to buy a Samovar but I did buy an amber ring and brooch. I would definitely return on my next holiday to Russia. The Walks with Folks guide also accompanied me to a tea house that was gorgeous and quaint with lovely food and drinks for sale.
  • This store is a MUST do/see while you are visiting Moscow!! The market is full of different vendors that offer a different things like matryoshka dolls, old Soviet souvenirs, food, and objects made of wood—- and MUCH MORE!! The vodka museum is absolutely spectacular, and you will see a wooden church!! KPYTO! My tour guide, Yulia, was very friendly, well spoken, knowledgeable, and very personable. She knows this tour like the back of her hand, and I recommend her for this tour!!!
