Alina was an excellent guide. She was super efficient and flexible at showing us the things we had asked to see, during our very limited time in Moscow, and it was great to be able to whizz round the key sites, and some quirkier ones, with her keeping a careful watch on our timing. We really came away feeling we had covered all the key sites, and a few more unusual ones!
