Vlad comes highly recommended by us: me, wife (hard-to-please History teacher) and grown up sons (don't suffer fools gladly). Vlad showed great empathy, listened and clearly appreciated what we were looking for and then organised the tour to suit us. He has a dry sense of humour, has some interesting things to say and was good to be with. All in all, an excellent guide who made the experience informative and a great pleasure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rob, Thanks a lot for booking my tour. I really enjoyed the company of your family and it was a great pleasure to show you Moscow. I have tried to do this day as a memorable experience for you and I am happy that you liked it. Hope to see you some day in Moscow again! And keep using TourByLocals, it is great company!

Vladimir P. was great. Spoke English, had a car and really covered Moscow in one day. Explained much history we never knew and gave us a new prospective on the Russian people. And recommended great restaurants!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dan, thanks a lot for taking my tour and for your positive feedback. It was a pleasure to spend this day with you and your wife and show you the best of Moscow!

Vladimir was a wonderful tour guide! He tailored the tour exactly to our interests and was very flexible— we found him very knowledgable, engaging, and in general fun to be around. Thank you Vladimir!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for taking the tour with me Olivia! It was a pleasure to spend these few hours with you in Moscow! Hope to see you one day again here.

While our guide Vladimir was quite knowledgeable and friendly, the tour was a waste of money because we spent a lot of time in traffic and finding parking (In other tours, the guide usually came with a driver, who would drop us at the entrance. Ended up walking a lot and only saw few of the sites. I would suggest just stay close to the Red Square and visit the main sites there. City tour is not worth it. Instead, tour the city at night.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharad! Thanks for your feedback! I understand your concern regarding the traffic and spending time for it but that is sometimes unavoidable in the big city like Moscow. The tour set up was to use the car as we cover both center and more further places. Anyway, my apologies for this. I will take it into consideration planning my tours . Still I hope you enjoyed overall tour and Moscow experience! I would be happy to propose special tour for you if you in Moscow next time!

Noel ChapmanUnited States
This guy is the absolute BEST. Highly recommend. Loves his city and will tailor the tour to your taste. A history buff who knows every nook and cranny. We only spent one day with Vladimir but now we feel like we have a friend in Moscow!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Noel! Thanks a lot for boking the tour with me and for your feedback! It was a great day! I also feel that I have new friends now!
Vladimir tailor-made a Soviet inspired 2-day tour for my 4 sons, including the must see sights. He adjusted the schedule when our flight was delayed; able to answer queries about anything (historical and trivial). He even went out of his way to return the eyeglasses of my husband the day after.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roma, Thank you very much for booking my tour with Toursbylocals. It was a pleasure to work with you and your family during these 2 days. Hope to see you in Moscow someday! And keep using Tourbylocals! Best regards, Vladimir

We had high expectations based on the tour description and positive comments from other tourists, and we were not disappointed. Vladimir was a terrific host -- personable, knowledgable, flexible and easy to explore with. He had excellent suggestions on what to see, and what to skip, always reflecting our interests and timing. We covered a lot territory and walked away more informed and even more inspired to get to know Moscow. We highly recommend this tour and its competent leader! Don't miss this one!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew, Thanks a lot for booking my tour with Toursbylocals! It was a pleasure to travel with you and show you my city! I always remember my clients and I would be happy to provide you best services anytime you are in Moscow. And keep using Toursbylocals!

We did a custom made day tour with Vladimir in Moscow seeing as our time in Moscow was very limited. From the start it was very easy to communicate with Vladimir and to pay Tours by locals. We told him more or less what we wanted and he then made it happen in a smooth and well run manner. We enjoyed the day in Moscow and Vladimir was an excellent, knowledgeable and accommodating guide. He made the tour very interesting indeed. He made sure that our time was well managed and fun without us feeling rushed
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Reinette, Thanks a lot for ordering my tour. It was a pleasure to work with you. Hope to see you again in Moscow!
