We had a 3 day tour with Alina. She took us to all the key sites, as well as to some interesting things not in the guide books, including some great traditional restaurants. She speaks great English, and has a thorough knowledge of Moscow's history and attractions. We travelled as a family with two teenagers, and she kept things interesting for everyone. We would highly recommend her. She helped make Moscow very welcoming.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That was so much joy and pleasure to be your local guide and friend for your family, James. Thank you for this experience!

This young lady was so accommodating. Extremely pleasant and considerate. She was wonderful. She took us three days of excursions in Moscow that made our vacation, at least the best I have had in 50 years of travel. When I return to Moscow next year with my wife, she will be the one I will call on to show us around.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is so much joy to read your kind words, Ken. Thank you so much, I appreciate it

Alina did an outstanding job. She communicated with me via email for 6 more than 6 months prior to visiting Moscow so we could work out the schedule. We started off with a get acquainted dinner that last several hours while we discussed food options and reviewing the schedule. We then had two 6 hour days and did a lot of walking along with the Metro. We could not have asked for a better guide. Excellent English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dean, I truly enjoyed our time together and have very good memories. Thank you for choosing me!

This tour was fantastic! Alina was fun and friendly and perfect welcome to the city. We did all the usual tourist stuff but also saw some everyday Moscow sites. The highlight was just hanging out with her getting a feel for regular life in Moscow. I definitely recommend seeing the city by night-it is most beautiful lit up and it was a great first night in town. also, use the metro! Alina showed us how and it was so easy and efficient once we were on our own. Great tour with an excellent guide!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aww thank you for your warm and kind words, dear Tara! I'm glad you had a great time in Moscow and had no problem using metro. My pleasure!!
Alina was wonderful at negotiating the city through the holiday disruptions!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ruth, thank you. It was a challenge, but we did it! :)

she was caring and considerate and patient She was terrrific
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, Isaac. I learnt so much myself from our communication during these 4 days. It was great pleasure to meet you. Have a safe journey back!
My guide was very knowledgeable and gave me very interesting facts about the places we were seeing,the city and the culture. We ate at local cafes(good local food and prices). I could never have been able to manage the metro without her. The tours were at a very relaxed pace but we saw a lot in our time together. I really enjoyed our conversations and our days together. She made me feel comfortable in the areas we toured and I went back on my own when not on tour. I highly recommend this guide and tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Janis! It was my pleasure
