A Recent Review of this guide
Olesya put together a great tour for my husband and I to the Military Museum and the Aurora Cruiser. She was very informative but let us go at our own pace. When we had a little extra time, she suggested the summer park which was perfect for us. Not only would I use Olesya again, but I will also use ToursByLocals. Thanks Olesya for a great day!

I will not drive myself but hire a driver or van (or accompany you in your vehicle) on the tours that requires driving. (Both for insurance reasons and because I like to focus on the guiding).
