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 )

This is a great tour to take to see the countryside outside of Kazan. Marat is a great guide with good insight to the area.
Marat was excellent. He had a very broad knowledge of the history of Kazan and was able to delve into details as needed. His descriptions and explanations helped us to appreciate Kazan's history and the sites that we visited in a way that would not have been possible otherwise. He made Kazan most enjoyable for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kulathida, thank You a lot for Your positive impressions of Kazan and Your kind comments about my service. I highly appreciated the rating you have shown. I was very enjoyed to meet You and Your beautiful daughter in Kazan. Let all Your new travelling destinations be more interesting and successful. My sincerest and warmest wishes of happyness to You and Your daughter! Best regards from Kazan!
Marat was a wondeful guide and he was full of knowledge and information about Kazan and its long history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again Mr. O'Sullivan, I'm happy you liked our city and its biggest monument!
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.
