Alina did an outstanding job! She was punctual, had a plan, very knowledgeable, personable, flexible and she connected well with every member of our group. Everyone commented about her knowledge of the city and Russian history. We also greatly appreciated that she quickly understood what our group interests were and adjusted the plan to make the most of our time together. Alina's English is excellent and she skillfully led our group in a wide variety of circumstances. We would highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That was pleasure showing you around, Rick! Thank you for choosing me. You are always welcome back

Ashley RayUnited States
We had an amazing day with Alina in Moscow! She was very personable and extremely knowledgeable in the culture and history not only of Russia, but many other countries as well. She helped form an itinerary for the day that was unique and interesting to us so that we could see several main sites and others off the beaten path. Alina was our favorite tour guide of our 4 week trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Ashley! It was my pleasure

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Vicki!
Alina B is a well travelled trendy young lady who certainly knows her stuff. Showing us things one would have easily mussed without her in depth knowledge , and enthusiasm. Lots of local colour was added by her enthusiasm. Great guide friendly and easy going to be with. Certainly well worth hiring her to enhance your stay. Clive & Lynn Levitt
Truly a happy friendly guide. - Good for Metro tour - decent for overviews of other parts of city and some less visited spots around central square - may not recommend for inside Kremlin because the depth and accuracy of knowledge needed work Suggested for the happy go lucky tourists looking for overviews
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback, Chetna. I didn't want to overwhelm you too much with names, dates and numbers as some tourists get bored with such kind of info, and I thought you were enjoying the fun facts I was giving you as I was trying to share the most interesting and fascinating facts and stories. I'm sorry if it was not enough for you.
Great guide. Very friendly and likes to talk. Not only about subject of the tour but life in general in Russia. Thanks Alina for this wonderful tour of the subway system...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure, thank you so much for your company, Stephan!!

Alina provided us with a fantastic 6 hour walking tour of Moscow. Her English was perfect, but more importantly she provided us with a great insight into life in Russia and Moscow in particular. Alina was very flexible about how we organised the day and tailored the itinerary to our needs as we went along. We had a really enjoyable time and learned a lot. We would highly recommend Alina.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great adventure! :)
Arwinder LutherUnited States
Alina was very friendly and professional. Most importantly, she was so flexible in working with me when my flight into Moscow was delayed. The tour that was to start at 9am finally started at 3:30pm and Alina made sure I still saw all the points of interest in Moscow. Alina took me to so many spots that other people in my travel group did not check out with other tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Arwinder, I'm happy to enjoyed our tour :)
Sarah SchneiderUnited States
Alina was awesome. We only had one day to see the sites and she worked with us to make sure we saw the sights important to us but also added some nice local flavor. She was a joy to talk with and learn about the country through her eyes. We had a fabulous tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sarah! I loved our tour too, hope to see you again one day!

Alina is a warm and genuine guide who provides an excellent introduction to the splendid city of Moscow. Well informed and equipped with many historical images on her iPad, Alina brings the history of the city alive and ensures you are constantly kept engaged and involved. You will quickly feel like old friends and the day will pass faster than expected leaving you with great memories and sharing her affection for the city. I recommend Alina highly and enjoyed the time I spent with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sarah, thank you so much for your feedback. It was my pleasure and honor to be your local guide and friend. Always welcome back to Russia!
Fred GallegosUnited States
I can't say enough how nice it is to go to a country where you have no experience or knowledge of the language and find a friend to show you around. Alina was exactly that. I learned some history, experienced some of the culture, saw some beautiful site and even did some ice skating in Moscow. She shared some interesting stories and was very easy to talk to. I highly recommend Alina as your friend and guide when visiting Moscow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, Fred. It was a beautiful winter day! I'm happy you enjoyed skating ;)
