Alina is very knowledgable about Moscow and is proud of her country. She is personable and enjoyable to be with. Her English is good. We spent one walking day with her and got good exposure to central Moscow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, James! I'm happy you still enjoyed our day despite this stormy weather :) Have a beautiful week!

I am so very grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting Alina and to having her show me around her beautiful city. We could not have asked for a more glorious day! Working through ToursByLocals and spending the day with Alina was like meeting up with an old friend and being able to see the city through the eyes of someone who really loves her home. It was just so comfortable and easy and Alina was amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend her and the services of ToursByLocals to anyone. Thank you! D
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awww David! Thank you so much! It was so hot that day, I was worrying you would melt :) I loved our tour too. Thank you for choosing me. Hope to see you again one day. Best, Alina

Keith StantonUnited Kingdom
What a fabulous way to see Moscow. Alina was most attentive, but relaxed and informative. I really felt I got to see more of the real Moscow by being accompanied by Alina. I would highly recommend her to any other visitor to Moscow. Thank you for a wonderful day. Keith
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That was such a lovely day, Keith! I'm very happy to have met you. Welcome to Moscow any time
A great walking and metro tour of Moscow to explore the hidden gems and the major sites. Alina has a lot of knowledge that she imparts very clearly and with humour.
After 2 weeks back home in Canada, our time in Russia already seems like an exotic dream. And we have Alina to thank for a terrific & fascinating 2 days in Moscow. From the vastness of the Kremlin & Red Square to the delights of a sweet in an extraordinary grocery shop, Alina was a constantly informative & pleasant companion. We made excellent use of our time - & of course, 2 days is nowhere near sufficient time. So, thanks Alina for all your efforts on our behalf. Andrew & Sandra.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Andrew and Sandra, hope to see you again one day!
Greg ParkerUnited States
Alina was very friendly, prompt, efficient, and knowledgeable. More importantly, she took the time to understand what we wanted and ensured that we had a great time. We really enjoyed our time in Moscow with Alina.
Alina was amazing, would highly recommend. Really knows her city and is quiet the history buff.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Luke. See you soon in S! ;)
Beverley CrossUnited Kingdom
We asked Alina to show us the real Moscow away from the general tourist attractions. We had a few must see like the Metro stations and Lubyanka but other than that left the day to her. She was brilliant. She did suggest the changing of the guard at the Kremlin as it only happened on a Saturday and was only in the Summer, we could have missed a great event if she was not flexible with our brief. She is wonderful and very knowledgeable. I just wish we could take her to every country we visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are my sweet Oxford tourists! I will let you know when I come to the UK, it will be soon, I hope ;)
James HickeyUnited Kingdom

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Enjoyed so much being your guide! If you ever cone to Moscow again, please be my guest and I'll make sure your journey will be safe
Steven GartUnited States
Alina was prompt, charming and knowledgable. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Moscow to request her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are amazing, Steven!
Michael IckowitzUnited States
Alina was a great guide. Her English is just about flawless, and she communicated with me several times in advance to make sure that my tour included everything that I wanted. She even arranged for some shopping and further negotiated a discount beyond what the store was advertising. Thanks Alina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aww that's so nice of you, Mike. I really enjoyed your company on that Wednesday, it was my pleasure to help you
Being a tourist in Moscow is not easy N having an angel by your side makes a world of a difference. Waking up to horrendous weather in October can be a challenge. She took me straight to Sanduny Banya, gave me an authentic Russian experience of a lifetime. Afterwards for lunch, headed straight to a hip N cool Uzbekistan Resto for some killer Kebabs. Talk about russian culture in a nutshell, in the hands of a thoughtful, young expert who knows the city inside out,it just couldnt get any better than that:)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: John, you are awesome! Thank you! XX
Omid KhorramUnited States
She is very nice person but had limited knowledge of the history and did not take care of the metro tickets as was stated on the tour description.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very sorry, Omid, if you were not satisfied with the tour. When we got to the metro you said you had tickets already, so I thought you were fine, but now I realize I should have left a ticket for 5 or 10 trips for you to compensate the trips you used during the tour. And I'm also incredibly sorry if there was little history. I just didn't want to overwhelm you with dates and names and picked up the most curious historical facts.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals refunded the metro tickets used by the customer during the tour and the guide was advised to provide sufficient information prior and during the tour to future customers.
