Helena B.United Kingdom
Daniel. Thank you for a great 2-day introduction to Moscow. Pat enjoyed the opportunity to see suburban as well as city Moscow and we were all fascinated by the Kremlin. You showed us the different faces of Stalin's time, the spectacular Moscow Metro and the simultaneous events of Stalin's Gulag. The gulag museum was most impressive. Thank you for putting life and history together and for stimulating our interest in everything Russian and Muscovite. A excellent tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Helena, Thank you for your positive feedback. I hope to see you in Moscow again. I'll be happy to show you some more of this enormous city. Kind regards, Daniel
Dan was very comprehensive, he talked about history as much as about daily life today. He was very polite and patient, discussed with us about our preferences and took the time to stroll with us on our requesting pace.
Mary LeeUnited States
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2-day customized Moscow tour with Daniel. We learned a lot about Russian history, and Daniel took us to places we would not have found on our own that taught us more about Moscow and its people. We also enjoyed Daniel's personal stories of living in Moscow through its various changes.

Our group of 4 adults spent 3 action-packed days touring Moscow with Dan. He is a great guide. Not only is he very knowledgable of the area, but he does everything in his power to make sure you have an enjoyable and memorable experience. We used the Metro (and of course did a tour of the best stations), walked, and had a private car so that we could take advantage of as much as possible for the days we had in Moscow. Highly recommend him without any reservations!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cheryl, Sorry for the delay in replying to you. And thank you for your great feeback. Hope to see you in Moscow again. Kind regards, Daniel

Dan was a terrific guide for our group of 5. He was knowledgeable, at times funny, interesting, patient and we loved our time with him. Dan knew what to recommend and we had our list of things to see too which he incorporated into the tour. Highly recommended!

Mary GrangerCampbell, CALIFORNIA, United States
Daniel went above and beyond to insure that we had a good visit to Moscow. He seemed genuinely interested in the quality of our visit. On balance, he exceeded our expectations. He is a very good person. If we return for another visit, we will definitely ask for his help again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary and Fred for your feedback! And thank you for recommending me this amizing film Dersu Uzala))) It was a great pleasure to meet you!

We spent 2 fantastic days with Dan - he listened to what we wanted to see and came up with a terrific schedule. As well as VDNKh Park, Gulag Museum, and Izmaylovo Kremlin, he took us to where "ordinary people" live and work - we had lunch in a typical non-touristy cafe, and a stroll around a lovely park, which we really enjoyed. He is very knowledgeable and explained things well, and is very fluent in English. We were thrilled with the time we spent with Dan and are happy to recommend him to anyone.

5/5 Daniel was the best!!!
This is our first experience with ToursbyLocals, and we are glad we have done it. Daniel,s services were professional, prompt and punctual. Daniels went out of his way to make us comfortable, the itinerary was easy and not rushed. at the end of the tour Daniel was kind enough to help us to catch the Metro to the airport. A true professional. I would recommend his services to everyone.
Jodie CharlopUnited States
Dan was a fantastic guide. Personable, so knowledgeable. He was a pleasure to work with. We travel often and would rate Dan at the top. His knowledge of the city and deep history was fantastic. His conversational sharing of diverse and current topics made our time super enjoyable. Not just a typical guided tour. Added places we wouldn't have thought of on our own. Went the extra mile for our trip. Highly recommend.
Daniel was flexible and knowledgeable, and communicative. He was also able to customize the tour to suit the interests of our young children aged 6 and 9. We enjoyed touring Moscow with him and learning about the rich history as well as the current affairs of this city.
Patricia BoehlandUnited States
Dan made this tour a "WOW!" from start to finish. He customized the itinerary to accommodate my husband's mobility scooter. He took us places and told us about life in Russia that was far above any of the tours provided by our river boat. If we return to Moscow we will ask Dan to escort us again and we will tell all of our friends what a wonderful guide he is.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Patricia.I'll be happy to be your tour guide again!
Wonderful Thank you ��
Amazing tour and wonderful tour guide! Dear Daniel, thank you for these 3 wonderful days we spent together in Moscow. Daniel is very friendly,kind, smart, knows a lot about history and always on time. Next time I will do my tour with him again. He was not just my tour guide, he is my new friend from Moscow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dani! I enjoyed being your tour guide. And I'm looking forward to seeing you in Russia again. Spasibo or Hvala!

Daniel was an amazing tour guide he extensive knowledge and insights taught me so much about Moscow and Russian history he went above and beyond to show me the most in the limited time I had. This tour is must when you are in Moscow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Khalifa, I just want to say thank you for your feedback and it was a big pleasure to meet you and work with you.I'll be happy to see you in Moscow again.
He was flexible with the itinerary and had plenty of interesting photos and facts, and jokes as well. Judy

If you are hesitating because of Dan's fluency in English, don't. Dan is affable, knowledgeable, and conveyed information clearly and beautifully. He came prepared with photographs, maps and vivid description of places we visited. Dan was able to plan a unique trip for our group. We only wish we had booked him for a longer period of time.
If you are looking for an intelligent historian and art critic, do not hesitate one second to choose Daniel as a guide. Besides being completely bilingual in English, he has an incredible knowledge of Moscow's history. He adapted very well to the rhythm of our group (changes of plan, pauses) and designed a tour around the city, at the Red Square and at Tsaritsyno palace. Even if he said he usually does not give tour there, he was able to explain lots of funny and interesting anecdotes from the Tsar era.
Nancy SimonsonBend, OREGON, United States
Daniel was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable & informative who speaks English very well. There were 5 us, including a 10 year old and a 13 year old and he kept them engaged. Daniel went out of his way to show us the sites we requested and added additional interesting locations. Per my request Daniel provided a wonderful wheelchair which made touring much easier! At the last minute he arranged for a van to take us to the train station. Very flexible! I highly recommend Daniel!
We enjoyed Daniel's company and guiding immensely. We had a "play it by ear" day tour with him. He was able to accommodate our interests and create an engaging and informative itinerary. We navigated by taxi and walking with ease, which made the most of the time we had. Daniel has a wealth of information and perspectives about the city and Russian history and culture. We highly recommend him!
Deborah RamseyUnited States
Daniel is a very knowledgeable guide who is very accommodating to his tourists. He took us to the usual tourist locations but also made sure to include other points that we were interested in. We are an older couple who need a few rest breaks during the day and Daniel made sure to include breaks into our schedule. I strongly recommend Daniel to those interested in the art and history of Russia.
Karen DaileyUnited States
On scale of 5 Daniel P certainly deserves a 10.We are a family of 4 including a 10 and an 8 year old. We spent 4 days with Daniel a true Muscovite; that not only knows the city and it's history but also truly commits himself to make your time in Moscow an unforgettable one; furthermore, he really cares about his clients, looks for the best deals and opportunities for you.We walked, saw, tasted and experienced a part of Moscow that most tourist never get even close to enjoy. I 100% would recommend him
Haig B.United States
Dan was very knowledgable and helpful. He covered all the important sights of Moscow that were in the itinerary we had previously developed. He did a good job of describing the background and history of all that we saw on the tour.
Christopher DabskiUnited States
Another excellent day with Daniel. Completely flexible and imaginative. We walked, took subway, train or taxis when appropriate. Nothing is impossible with Daniel. Good conversation and interesting takes on different aspects of life in Russia. You will bring good memories from Russia with this incredible guide!
Christopher DabskiUnited States
Daniel is a terrific guide: very informative, attentive to your needs and flexible. He speaks excellent English and above all displays a friendly, personable approach that gets you quickly though the day. We couldn't wish for a better guide and would recommend him wholeheartedly for any assignment.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Chris!!! See you tomorrow.
Barbara W.United States
We were so fortunate to have Daniel as our guide in Moscow. He shared his wealth of knowledge about the sights and Russian history in a really fascinating way. Even our teen who claims he "hates" history absolutely loved it! We walked a ton, but Dan was very considerate about taking breaks when needed, and he was very flexible with our interests. By the end of our tour it felt like a friend was showing us around. His warmth, openness, and intelligence was a pleasure to be around.
Mary F.United States
We completely enjoyed our time with Daniel. We originally had a two day tour booked, but due to really bad luck with United Airlines, we missed one full day. Communication was great prior to our visit. He was friendly, on time and so interesting. He took us to a small monastery, we took local transportation and had lunch in a great market. During a terrible downpour we had smoothies in Gorky Park and talked. We saw several metro stations, then he dropped us off at our river boat! Excellent tour!
