Introduction Walking Tour of Moscow plus Metro and one museum
This is a perfect option to explore Moscow. This tour includes 1, 5 hours' walking tour in the centre (Red Square, Bolshoi Theatre, State Duma, Gum Department Store, Zaryadye Park, St Basil Cathedral, Alexander Garden, etc. ), a short tour of Moscow Metro and one museum visit of your choice. You can choose between the State Tretyakov Gallery, Historical Museum of Moscow or St Basil Cathedral.
This is a tour for the first time visitors who want to get the idea of the city with a professional guide so that to continue exploring the city on their own. This is a short and informative visit that combines Red Square area with adjacent streets and gardens, a visit to Moscow Metro and one museum of your choice. If I were you I would choose the State Tretyakov Gallery every time :) because it is the best way to explore history of Russia from medieval to modern times in pictures. However, St Basil Cathedral or Historical Museum can be good options too.
Please, note, that the State Tretyakov Gallery is closed on Monday, St Basil Cathedral on Wednesday and Historical Museum on Tuesday (some changes apply during high season)

I assume that some people walk slowly, some love taking pictures of everything they see on the way and some are professional sprinters. So this tour can last from 3.5 to 5 hours depending on tourists' personal features.
This is a walking tour with a visit to Moscow Metro which can be also used for transportation if needed.
The tour includes guiding service plus metro tickets.
