Slightly mixed feelings about this tour

The Kremlin and its cathedrals are fascinating, and our guide knew his history and spoke excellent English so his commentary was very good. However, we found him to be racist and xenophobic, which rather spoilt the tour for us. Whilst he is entitled to his views on Russia's annexation of the Crimea, Georgians, Ukrainians and Muslims, we felt that they should not have formed part of his commentary.
