Enjoyed the tour. Alina provided us with a lot of interesting insights into some not so touristy things which we would have otherwise never known.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice words, Ashish. I'm glad you enjoyed your time with me

It was awful! The worst private tour ever! I wanted a simple Kremlin tour, just what's in Alina's ad. We got nothing what was promised. Huge disappointment. I learned nothing, my American guest learned nothing. Alina really oversold herself in her advertising. Her English is below average, she was boring and quiet, didn't talk much, hardly talked at all, she seemed young and inexperienced to me. Unfortunately, it was a waste of very valuable time in Moscow. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this tour with Alina!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Svetlana! I'm endlessly sorry you had such an awful experience with me. I'm very shocked too, as I had a feeling you and your son and his girlfriend were enjoying the tour, as despite the hurricane we did quite fun activities that day: Red Square and Kremlin tour, caviar sampling, Museum of Toys, Eliseevsky Emporium... I am so sad you didn't enjoy any of it and you and your American guest learnt nothing from tour and that it was a waste of your time. My sincere apologies

Alina was an excellent guide. She was super efficient and flexible at showing us the things we had asked to see, during our very limited time in Moscow, and it was great to be able to whizz round the key sites, and some quirkier ones, with her keeping a careful watch on our timing. We really came away feeling we had covered all the key sites, and a few more unusual ones!

Alina was extremely patient. She took on the role of teaching me the Moscow metro system and how to get around in it. She covered all areas of which there a many. I got tremendous instructions and she kept checking what I was understanding. She and I shared delight in my "getting it" she is young and enthusiastic and yes responsible and mature. I was very lucky to get her help. I ended by doing the circle viewing the Moscow stations with my new skills.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Olivia! I'm so happy you enjoyed our time together

Alina was wonderful! She is knowledgeable about the city and history, took me places not common to tourists, and a pleasure to tour with in the city.. I didn't feel hurried, and sincerely enjoyed my one on one tour with her! This is my first experience with Tours by Locals, but will not be my last!

I did the Red Square and Kremlin tour with Alina and she was great. Very informative, interesting and knowledgeable and she also included some of the surrounding area/streets. Really enjoyed the tour....despite the fact it poured rain almost the entire time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Melanie, yes indeed, the rain attacked us that day. I'm so happy you enjoyed the tour, so did I! Loved it despite everything

The perfect tour for me, a full day of walking, talking, shopping, and hunting down the elusive "STALIN" for that rare photo-op in Red Square. It was indeed truly memorable - the chance to feel Moscow's pulse and to see Moscow's Pride with the perfect and fun-loving guide Alina. Thank you anew for taking good care of me and More Power... You are the best !!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: no, YOU are the best!

We truly had a great experience with Alina. She was very good at tayloring the tour to our interests. She was a great resource and truly made our experience quite nice. Alina's help set up the rest of our Moscow trip. She created an understandable map of the subway and the attractions we wanted to see. This allowed us to get around Moscow and enjoy the city. Alina was really patient and helpful. We would highly recommend her for anyone who wants to get great treatment at the start of their Moscow trip.
