You mean a private tour from Moscow?

 

I've been to both (assuming you mean 1812 war memorial in case of Viaz'ma), but not with a tour.  That said, even the (significantly) larger Borodino is best visited when they have some kind of reenactment going on (which, afaik, usually coincides with the anniversary of the battle).

We have visited the site of the Battle of Borodino - it is located about 80 miles west of Moscow and we visited via auto with friends. We also visited the memorial to heroes of the Battle of Stalingrad (if that is the site to which you are referring in Viaz'ma or Vyazma) - an interesting little town located a further 73 miles west of Borodino.

Although we did not engage a local tour company for our visits, there are many companies that provide day tours from Moscow. I recommend that you contact several of them and see which would best meet your needs.

Below are links to a few (more can be found via Google):
