Sightseeing & Bus Tours of Moscow

Author: Dimitry Paranyushkin (on 19 Aug 2009)

Below you can see a few samples of the tours offered in Moscow by our recommended tour providers. Unfortunately, Moscow does not yet have a company like Peter's Walk (in St. Petersburg), who are more on the alternative side of things. But you can still take a bus tour of the main attractions or visit a KGB museum if you wish.
