Marat was very informative and answered all kinds of questions (history, culture, Soviet time, Tatar culture, life style, etc.). Provided us with fair and neutral perspectives, and both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed 3 days with him. Marat is also a very sincere person with a great discipline. Highly recommended.

We really liked Marat. We booked two tours with him, which is a risk not knowing anything about him, but we were sure glad we did. He's friendly, knowledgable, and certainly makes one feel comfortable. He really gave us a positive impression of the people and culture of Kazan and Tatarstan. So thank you Marat, and Tours by Locals, for a memorable experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, thank you for positive comments which i highly appreciate ) My best wishes to you and 'course John )

Marat brought me to Raifa Monastry and on the way talked about the history of Kazan and all the events that have taken place there. The Monastry was a place of peace and was beautiful in the snow. Marat was on time and picked me up from my hotel and he drove me to the monastry. He is a excellent guide and i would strongly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn more about Kazan. Thank you Marat for showing me Kazan. You made my trip and i will never forget the beautiful sights i saw.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Mr. O'Sullivan, it was much thank to your kind nature I felt easy rendering this tour and was pleased to find a new friend. My deepest respect and appreciation for your choosing my service.
