Very pleasant and informative. Gave both the "state" and popular perspective on things as well as a personal perspective. Recommend highly.
If anyone wants a professional, well educated, and cheerful, as well as proficient in English and the subject matters, they should ask for Irina. She made our trip truly memorable.
Irina is very helpful and we enjoyed the tour a lot - you should definitely book yourself "A glimpse of Moscow" if you ever visit Russia and this will be a worthwhile experience if this is your first time !! Thanks Irina for the detailed explanation on the history and introduction of Moscow! Love it and we hope to see you again very soon!
Excellent tour and guide, Irina was awesome. She showed us everything we needed to see and knew the answer for every single question we had. Simply perfect, worth every cent! Highly recommended! Thanks Irina!!

Irina is a very courteous, capable guide who gave us a wonderfully descriptive tour and an insight into Russian life. We all felt that we had had a complete tour of Moscow sights and life.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kay! Thanks for your feedback. It was my pleasure to show you our capital and to spend time together with you and your friends.

Irina was a very nice guide but we can't be certain why she had such high marks from everyone else. While we liked our tour, Irina was very difficult to get information out of. Almost like walking with an awkward or uncomfortable stranger rather than a guide, excited to do her job. While we know no one is perfect, Irina is far from it. We would probably not give two stars to Irina if we wouldn't have four other outstanding guides during our trip to Russia.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Just like Irina, we are surprised to hear those comments since Irina has a stellar history with ToursByLocals.com and our customers. When asked if anything different happened during that tour, she was not able to point out anything and informed us that by the end of the tour the customers seemed to have had a enjoyed their experience.

Although we booked Irina with very short lead time she arrived on time and prepared to show us a good overview of Moscow in one day. Irina was knowledgeable and pleasant to be with. I recommend booking with Irina without hesitation.

Irina was terrific. She was quite knowledgeable about all the sites we visited. She changed plans along the way as more and more detours were being set up the day before Victory Day parade. We learned a lot not only about Moscow & Russia, but also about the enormous changes going on in Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Very professional, will let you see the insider view of Moscow. Great experience. Thanks! Itai and Ron, Tel Aviv

Irina's "A Glimpse of Moscow" tour is a perfect and highly recommended complement to any Moscow visit, whether a short-stay such as mine, or as a primer for more in-depth exploration. Irina is knowledgeable of sites and activities, both large and small, and adds a local touch to the Moscow experience. Her selection and presentation of sites was perfect, and her suggestion for a local fare restaurant provided a wide selection of authentic food filled with local ambiance. When in Moscow, book this tour!
