Irina was a wonderful guide. Patient. Going at our pace. She has an excellent command of the English language. In one of the synagogues we met with a woman in her 80's that built a very interesting museum of the Russian Jewish fighters in the second world war. The woman had a lot to tell. The tour was interesting and worthwhile. It made a difference that we had a guide. The fact that we picked the guide, had contact with her by email( and phone. She helped us get tickets to performances.

Date: Sep 5/19

Irina was an excellent guise. She has excellent command of the English language. On this particular tour, we stopped at a house which was unique. This visit was her doing. It gave us insight into how people lived in the villages 100 or more years ago and still today. It added much to the day tour to the Trinity monastery. At the monastery, she knew where are the best places to take pictures. She was well-versed with the history of the monastery aWe wish her good health and success in and the surroundings.

Date: Aug 26/19

Irina gave us a wonderful private tour of the Vladimir and Suzdal areas. We saw provincial towns, old wooden homes and the country side. We travelled 170 kms by train and 35 km by car from Moscow. Walking tours of the 850 year old white limestone cathedrals in Vladimir, the Suzdal Kremlin and the museum of wooden architecture were most interesting. Irina was very accommodating and ensured that we were well looked after. She was open to questions and willing to share interesting aspects of her life.

We were very fortunate to have Irina C be our guide for a day in Moscow. She is a very experienced, knowledgable guide arriving at our apartment on time. Her English was excellent as she is an English teacher. We were shown how to use the Metro and given the history of some of the stations. Then were taken to the major attractions. Without Irina, we'd probably still be trying to find our way out of the metro. Best way to see Moscow. Thanks for a lovely day.

Date: Jun 18/19

Irina was a very competent and helpful guide. On this tour we learned a great deal about Russian crafts--both the lacquer boxes and trays. Folks at the factories and places we visited spoke mainly Russian and Irina translated for us in a way that kept us informed and involved in the conversation. Because of traffic our tour lasted longer than originally planned, but that was not a problem for Irina. My wife and I highly recommend her as tour guide.

Irina is the perfect combination of flexibility, experience, and hard work. My family took an all-day tour (to her credit, a very long day) with Irina. We were very specific about what we wanted to see. No standard tour would work, but Irina was open to customizing. In fact, she added a tour for us on her day off. Right up to our arrival, we were adjusting. Irina made the changes, never complaining. She was ready, experienced, and knowledgeable. Irina will make your visit memorable.

Irina arranged a driver and took us to Sergiev Posad, a beautiful site. Our driver, Sergei, was very friendly and also spoke very good English. We first stopped at a small family farm where we had a charming visit with Anatolia and his wife Tatiana. They were gracious and friendly, serving us homemade wine, tea, cookies, and chocolate. We then went on to the monastery, Sergiev Posad, that was spectacular. We had a wonderful lunch and visit to a food market and nesting doll shop. We highly recommend.

Irina was excellent. She met us at the airport and helped us with luggage storage in the terminal our next flight was to depart from. Then off we went. Express train into Moscow and subway to Red Square. We saw so much in the short time we had. We really had a great day - she was so efficient and her tour was fabulous. She was pleasant, funny, and a wonderful person for our family to spend the day with! Her command of English is Excellent. Also helped us get back to the airport perfectly. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️❗

Tour: #43077, Russian Dacha Tour + countryside. Explore everyday life of local Russians.Visit your guide's dacha+ an ancinet town,Dmitrov., Moscow, Moskva, Russia    view tour
Date: Apr 11/19

Irina is friendly and helpful but her real strength is in her planning. She had two back up plans in case the weather intervened. We spent the morning with her friends in their dacha which everyone loved but either of the other options would have worked equally as well. If you want to see the real Russian countryside, we recommend you book Irina. Our only suggestion would be trying to engineer a microphone facility for the MPV as only the guests seated immediately behind her, could hear her commentary

Irina put together a wonderful itinerary for us. Our group can be difficult to plan for because of ages and varied interests (me, my wife and 4 daughters aged 6-21). When Irina fell ill, her colleague Elena stepped in an did an equally fantastic job! We went dog-sledding, painted matryoshkas in Sergiev Posad, did an Ice-breaker cruise of the Moskva river, toured Red Square and St. Basil's. In short, an unforgettable, magical trip. I would recommend both Irina and Elena without any hesitation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful words. We are very happy that you and your family enjoyed our tours. Our best regards to all your Ladies and special kiss to Mila:)

A wonderful way to explore a historic town near Moscow and get in some Nordic skiing. I enjoyed both skate and classic at Dimitrov winter sports center, just 10 mins from town center. Irina is fabulous--friendly, knowledgeable, super organized and flexible (eg adopting to your interests, how much you want to ski, etc.) To top it off, she hails from Dimitrov, so there's no better guide to this place!

Irina was a terrific guide. She was there when we got off our ship and took us everywhere by metro which was an added bonus. When we got tired, she called ubers. She is extremely knowledgeable and her English is excellent. We saw the Choral Synagogue, 2 Jewish museums, community center. In future planning, I would suggest spending a little less time at the charity/medical complex to leave more time for the Museum of Tolerance where we ran short on time. I highly recommend Irina and this tour!
