2. Sightseeing and guided tours in Moscow

Once you see downtown Moscow, it’s time to start exploring the city on the different sightseeing and guided tours that can be taken.

There are tours to learn about the Soviet and communist eras, tours of the Space Age, tours of the era of the czars or tours of the more modern Moscow. I also recommend taking a boat tour on the Moskva River to see the city from a different side and to see the most beautiful bridges up close.

In this section I’ll tell you about the different sightseeing tours you can take, whether you are traveling by yourself, as a couple or with children, or if you are traveling in the summer or at Christmas.

To get going, I suggest that you start by reading the article What to see and do in Moscow in 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 days, which will give you a quick idea of Moscow’s main attractions.
