Saw some lovely off the record places and Alina was very accomodating
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Riaz! I truly enjoyed our tour and I hope to see you guys again one day
We thoroughly enjoyed our two-day tour of Moscow with Alina. We had communicated ahead of time about our itinerary, which she was happy to customize for us. She arrived on time at our hotel, spent a few minutes in cementing the plan, and then gave us a great overview of the city over the course of two days. She was friendly, enjoyed discussion on many topics, and, as an avid traveler herself, understands how much information is enough in a short period of time. We highly recommend Alina!

We were very impressed with Alina as our tour guide in Moscow. She's knowledgeable, professional and courteous. She was also very accommodating with our requests. She made us very comfortable, and we really enjoyed learning and admiring the history and the beauty the city has to offer. We strongly recommend her to anyone that wants to have a great experience with this city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I truly enjoyed our tour and it was a lot of pleasure and joy to be your local guide in Moscow. Thank you so much for your kind words, Phu!
What an amazing tour of an amazing city. Alina met me at the train station as we had planned previously - she was on time, very friendly, and made sure I was able to drop my bags off at my hotel before we started our tour. I was able to change a few things in the tour that suited my interests, which Alina was more than happy to accommodate. The restaurants she recommended over our two day tour were some of the best meals I had in Russia. I felt like I not only had a great tour, but made a friend too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for these words, Robert! You really have made a friend in Moscow. You are always welcome back.

Poor communication - if itinerary needed changing or tickets were not available, this should be advised in advance. If we were required to pay for these in advance, this needs to be advised. Sarcastic replies to why tickets could not obtained, are not acceptable. Very little information about various sites was provided and many questions could not be answered. We were unaware that we needed to pay for guide's entrance tickets. This should have been communicated in advance. A very disappointing experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wayne, I'm very sorry you had a bad experience with me and felt like there was poor communication on tour. I personally was doing my best to please you, entertain you and answer all your questions, but as I see it was not enough. I appreciate your feedback and it's a good lesson for me to come up with more ideas and ways to make my tours more insightful for my tourists. The tickets couldn't be bought within such a short notice in high season, I'm very sorry about that.

Excellent, one of the best guides we have had and her English was great.

The 2 Days in Moscow tour was great! Alina is both exceptionally professional and personal, with a breadth of knowledge about history, culture, and the world. And she has a great sense of humor! Highly recommended!

Wow, what a great experience. Our guide couldn't have don a better job. Not only did she do a great job showing us the sights of Moscow, but she gave us restaurant recommendations and helped in any other way she could. Great job!

Alina was a fantastic guide. We arranged three different tours with Alina and we saw everything we had requested; She met us on time at the hotel on each occasion. She had arranged tickets for the sites ahead of time and it avoided us having to queue up to buy tickets; Alina was very patient and answered our questions about various exhibits. We travelled on the metro in Moscow and Alina explained interesting facts about some of the stations.Her company, availability & flexibility made all the difference!
David WellsUnited Kingdom
Alina was an excelellent guide and a mine of interesting information. She tailored the two day walking tour to suit our needs and took us on a tour of the best architecture on the metro. She was punctual and very friendly and we really enjoyed our time with her. We would recommend her as a guide to anyone who wants to do all the main sights but also wants to get a bit off the main attractions. David & Sally Wells
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David and Sally, thank you for being my tourists, I loved our 2 winter days too! XO

I spent a fantastic 2 days with Alina. Her knowledge of Moscow was great and was able to explain everything clearly, I would recommend Alina to anyone she was very enthusiastic and interesting when talking about Russia today. I really enjoyed knowing her and was very good about communicating
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Andrew, thank you! You're always back in Moscow, my friend! :)
Very friendly, nice and flexible guide. Alina is very knowledgeable about Moscow and showed us a lot of beautiful sites and provided us with many fun facts about the people and culture in Moscow. We sincerely thank her for the tour around the beautiful city of Moscow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lynwei, it was alovely tour! Hope to see you and your amazing family again one day!
Judith StewartNew Zealand
Alina made Moscow come alive for us because she taught us to use the metro during visits to the stations. She took us to places where we could explore on our own, she queued for us, she answered any many questions, she gave us excellent history lessons and found delightfully different cafes and restaurants for traditional Russian food. She listed sites she thought important but also listened to our wishes and incorporated these into our days. Thanks to Alina we used our days fully and loved Moscow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That was so exciting! Loved both days with you, fast and slow pace were equally amazing! Welcome back any time and see you in New Zealand ;)
Kevin R.WA, 98310, United States
Instantly I knew I picked the right guide: she was smiling full of passion for her city wanting to share not only touristy areas but Russia as seen by a Muscovite in their daily life. Thank you Alina for such a fun time. It seemed we were long lost friends sharing in the pleasures of the adventures, the sights of the city, swimming in the rain flooded streets and enjoying coffee and chocolate in Moscow's romantic café's delighting in each other's company. You are the best guide a person could ask for!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We really ARE long lost friends, Kevin. I felt a bit sad to leave you there on Tretyakov metro when it started raining again after our tour. But felt so good that now I know you. Please, keep in touch!
William HaehlUnited States
Our group would like to have had more history presented. However, we could not have accomplished all we did without her organization and her knowledge about the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I try not to bore my tourists on tours with excessive details. Sorry if all the information I gave you was still not enough :(
Alina was a friendly and helpful tour guide during my two days in Moscow! I enjoyed my time with her and the information on the sites she was able to take me to, definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a guide in Moscow. Thanks again Alina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure, Ben! Sorry if it wasn't excellent, but I did my best. Hope your overall experience in Russia was amazing and memorable!
