We had a several fun hours with Irina. She arrived early and we went on the Metro to Victory Park and we went on our own pace around this beautiful park. She explained all the monuments/history very well. We also went to Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and the bridge behind it. We then had an excellent lunch at Pushkin Kafe. Irina spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. I won't hesitate in recommending her for your tour in Moscow.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Lance! I had a great time with you and your family! Hope you had a great time in Belarus as well and in other places you are going to visit. Will be very happy to see you again if you decide to come back to Russia.

Very good English. Very agreeable and knowledgeable. When we went into the cathedrals I would suggest she develop an art history presentation to explain the icons etc. I was very interested in the are and when we went in and she didn't have anything to say.

We had such a great day with Irina. She's very helpful to make sure that we got all tickets we wanted to visit. And, she cares enough to speak slowly for us to understand all information and knowledge she provided us. Even though it was a long day walking, we are lucky to have her as our guide. Thank you so much, Irina!

My daughter and I came to Moscow for the World Cup soccer games and added sightseeing between games. Irina made all the arrangements and was very flexible working around our game schedules. She shared with us her personal experiences which were very insightful. In addition to sightseeing she assisted us in shopping for souvenirs in various markets. Our only mistake was using a car when the Metro would have been quicker.

Irina was wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and paid attention to what we were interested in. On the day of the tour, Red Square was closed so she improvised and replaced that part of the tour with a tour of some of the more interesting metro stations. She met us at our hotel and made sure we got back safely. Irina also gave us some good tips for the rest of our stay in Moscow. We enjoyed our day with her and would highly recommend her tours.

A night tour is a great way to see Moscow. Irina did a good job showing us the sights from near the Kremlin, to Christ the Savior Church, Moscow State University and then Sparrow Hill. With the Victory Day celebration in just a few days, Irina and the driver did a good job negotiating the traffic, road works and road closures. Irina does a great job communicating - she should be proud of her command of the English language.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, Thank you thank you for your review! I really enjoyed this evening tour with you!

As this was our first visit to Russia/Moscow, we (a small party of 4 Scots) agreed to hire a guide for our day in Moscow. We used Tours by Locals and were not disappointed. Irina was early, waiting for us at our hotel. She took us far and wide, using the Moscow Metro extensively to show us many parts of the city. Her English was excellent, she was charming and knowledgeable, going to great lengths to ensure a highly enjoyable day. We all agreed it was a fabulous way to discover Moscow. Highly recommended.

Irina navigated a family with preteen children through an intensive day seeing some of the best sights Moscow has to offer. Her experience meant we were able to get the most out of our time in Moscow. She was extremely knowledgeable about everywhere we went. We will be back and we hope to see more with Irina again.

Irina was the best tour guide! She showed up at my hotel at the pre-agreed time. From there we headed to the nearest subway station where she showed me how to get from one station to another. From their we proceeded to visit Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, Lenin's Tomb, GUM, Tverskaya street, Hard Rock Cafe (to pick up a souvenir pin), and several parks. Irina speaks perfect English, is very friendly, and has a lot of insight about the city/country and it's history. Highly recommend! Thanks Irina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words. It was great to meet you!

Irina was a fabulous Moscow tour guide. She took us around by taxi (due to a recent hip injury) and was very sensitive to my need to minimize excessive walking. She took us to all the places in Moscow we had not seen during our recent group tour (Kolomenskoe Estate, Ismilovo Market, and Arbat Street). She was wonderful to work with via e-mail to design and modify our tour when we needed to change the itinerary. Her English is impeccable. She is friendly, flexible and easy-going. We highly rec her!

Irina is a credit to the tourism industry, very punctual and knowledgeable.

Super friendly, bright and enthusiastic - highly recommend.

Irina was very attentive and tailored some sightseeing in Moscow to meet our schedule. Irina has a great knowledge of Russian history and culture and I was able to learn so much from her in a very short visit. With a little luck business will draw me back to Moscow, a city that I want to explore in much more detail. Irina made my recent visit to Moscow exciting, sparking an interest to learn more. Irina's english skills are impeccable. Having her as our guidewas a real treat. Kind Regards Michael
