Elsa MartinezUnited States
Alina knows where the best places in Moscow are and is an accomplished and reliable guide to be with. Booking a tour with her was a great complement to our experiences on a recent trip to Russia. We are glad we chose her and highly recommend her to anyone visiting Moscow. Thank you Alina! - Dan & Elsa
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elsa! Much appreciated!
Linda B.United States
Took this tour not only to see the magnificent underground Metro infrastructure, but also to familiarize myself with how to use the system. I got a good start in learning the Metro, as well as the opportunity to interact with a very engaging, educated, and interesting guide. Alina came prepared with various extras which she shared in order to help me familiarize myself with Moscow, and even emailed some additional information upon my request. Great first day in moscow!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Linda! I appreciate your kind words
Lawerence NorrisUnited States
Alina was wonderful. She went above and beyond all expectations! I consider myself lucky to have met such a wonderful person in my travels to Moscow. I consider her my friend and will want her for my guide if I should return. Thank you! Lawerence
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great pleasure to be your local guide and friend, Lawerence!
James CarleyUnited Kingdom
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!
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
Susanna SaiuUnited Kingdom
5 stars: Excellent - without reservations, I would recommend this service to anyone.
Tony InfantinoUnited States
I visited Moscow for the first time and I decided on a food tour. Fantastic tour! My guide, Tanya, and took me around the city for 5 hours showing me so much. She showcased all the history I could ask for. The food choices were excellent and I truly enjoyed each of the four. I would love to recommend this tour to anyone interested in food and history. It was a highlight of my trip to Moscow and allowed me to appreciate the culture of this area in a very enjoyable way. Definitely take this tour!!!!!!!
Lisa WeaverUnited States
Alina was great! She adjusted the tour to hit key items of interest and gave me a thorough view of Moscow. I had a fantastic experience and highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Lisa! You're amazing!
Riaz CachaliaSouth Africa
Saw some lovely off the record places and Alina was very accomodating
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Riaz! I truly enjoyed our tour and I hope to see you guys again one day
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
Kenneth LeavittUnited States
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
Freda JohnsonUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our two-day tour of Moscow with Alina. We had communicated ahead of time about our itinerary, which she was happy to customize for us. She arrived on time at our hotel, spent a few minutes in cementing the plan, and then gave us a great overview of the city over the course of two days. She was friendly, enjoyed discussion on many topics, and, as an avid traveler herself, understands how much information is enough in a short period of time. We highly recommend Alina!
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.
Phu LeNguyenUnited States
We were very impressed with Alina as our tour guide in Moscow. She's knowledgeable, professional and courteous. She was also very accommodating with our requests. She made us very comfortable, and we really enjoyed learning and admiring the history and the beauty the city has to offer. We strongly recommend her to anyone that wants to have a great experience with this city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I truly enjoyed our tour and it was a lot of pleasure and joy to be your local guide in Moscow. Thank you so much for your kind words, Phu!
Idalie SantaellaUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Idalie. I'm very sorry you were disappointed with the tour. We discussed the plan for the tour at the beginning of the tour and I thought we were on one page and I wanted to show you as much as I can on tour, but it seems I got it wrong. I'm sorry we didn't visit a bar on tour, I hope you still enjoyed the metro tour I arranged for you during this night tour and the other places we saw that night
What an amazing tour of an amazing city. Alina met me at the train station as we had planned previously - she was on time, very friendly, and made sure I was able to drop my bags off at my hotel before we started our tour. I was able to change a few things in the tour that suited my interests, which Alina was more than happy to accommodate. The restaurants she recommended over our two day tour were some of the best meals I had in Russia. I felt like I not only had a great tour, but made a friend too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for these words, Robert! You really have made a friend in Moscow. You are always welcome back.
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!!
Dean JeromeUnited States
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!
Svetlana KoontzUnited States
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
Kenneth GordonUnited States
Great tour guide, always on time, loved her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! :)
Peter ValentineUnited Kingdom
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. Peter & Sue Valentine, Epsom, UK
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Peter and Sue! That was a beautiful day and I'm so happy you had a good time
Wayne E.South Africa
Poor communication - if itinerary needed changing or tickets were not available, this should be advised in advance. If we were required to pay for these in advance, this needs to be advised. Sarcastic replies to why tickets could not obtained, are not acceptable. Very little information about various sites was provided and many questions could not be answered. We were unaware that we needed to pay for guide's entrance tickets. This should have been communicated in advance. A very disappointing experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wayne, I'm very sorry you had a bad experience with me and felt like there was poor communication on tour. I personally was doing my best to please you, entertain you and answer all your questions, but as I see it was not enough. I appreciate your feedback and it's a good lesson for me to come up with more ideas and ways to make my tours more insightful for my tourists. The tickets couldn't be bought within such a short notice in high season, I'm very sorry about that.
Melanie HiornsUnited Kingdom
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!
Olivia EsquibelUnited States
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
Sandra B.United States
Alina is wonderful! She took her time to show me where to buy souvenirs, negotiated a fair price, and in no way did I feel hurried! I throughly enjoyed my time with her on this tour and The other one I booked with her!! I really enjoyed the fact that I could book the same person for two Tours, since I am touring during the day by myself while my husband is with other friends. Thank you and if you need a tour guide in Moscow, choose Alina, you will not regret it!
Sandra B.United States
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!
Allan WinkworthUnited Kingdom
A good tour with good knowledgeable explanations.

Annelie JordaanSouth Africa
We enjoyed our metro tour with Alina very much. She is very knowledgeable and we value all the information about the beautiful metro stations of Moscow. Thank you Alina!
Erin BuzuvisUnited States
Alina was the perfect guide for our morning in Moscow. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her home city. Her guidance helped us maximize our short time in Moscow, and to have a unique and memorable experience. U.S. citizens should know that you need a tourist visa to leave the airport on your layover. The application process was more expensive and complicated than I realized. Make sure you factor that in to your planning!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Erin, thank you, it was my pleasure! Yes indeed, visa application can be tough :/ I'm sure they will do something about it some time soon
Lisa DanceUnited Kingdom
Alina was lovely and very knowledgeable - we had a great day with her - saw all the sites we wanted to in one day - we were exhausted by the end - Moscow is amazing, we loved it!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Lisa! You're lovely too :)

Tara PattisallUnited States
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!!
Carla MurilloUnited States
Alina was very knowledgeable about the Metro stations and its history. She was able to keep 6 people together in the craziness of rush hour. She was also very accommodating in terms of where to start and where to end.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Carla, the tour was a blast! I'm glad you had a good time

Simon KnockUnited Kingdom
Thoroughly enjoyed night tour of Moscow. Alina was a great guide, very informative (I learnt a lot) and a lovely friendly person. The tour was altered so I could visit some of Moscow's very interesting / beautiful metro stations which was appreciated. Alina also made sure I got back safely to get train to the airport. Would definitely recommend.

Katie SmithUnited States
We had a fabulous tour with Alina. She met us at the airport at 4:30 AM for our layover tour. She's very knowledgable in Russian history and her English is excellent. She's really charming and fun to talk to. The tour included all the "must see sights," plus a few surprises. It was well worth the effort (and visa!).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Katie, I appreciate your feedback. We had a great time :)

Linda NishiokaUnited States
Alina was very efficient and executed a perfectly timed tour for the subway trains showing us the art in the Moscow subways.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda!!! My pleasure
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 :)
Anna MarinacUnited States
I highly recommend Alina. She's energetic, very knowledgeable, and flexible. So much to see and do in Moscow, she made sure we got the most out of our first day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sarah! I loved our tour too, hope to see you again one day!
Melanie AshmoreNew York, NEW YORK, Ireland
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
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! :)
Patricia LedesmaUnited States
Alina was a fantastic guide. We arranged three different tours with Alina and we saw everything we had requested; She met us on time at the hotel on each occasion. She had arranged tickets for the sites ahead of time and it avoided us having to queue up to buy tickets; Alina was very patient and answered our questions about various exhibits. We travelled on the metro in Moscow and Alina explained interesting facts about some of the stations.Her company, availability & flexibility made all the difference!
Patricia LedesmaUnited States
Alina was a fantastic guide. We arranged 3 different tours with her and we saw everything we had requested; She met us on time at the hotel on each occasion. She had arranged tickets for the sites ahead of time and it avoided us having to queue up to buy tickets; of course this came at a premium, which we paid for. Alina was very patient and answered our questions about various exhibits. Her company, availability and flexibility made all the difference. Thanks Alina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy to hear that, thank you Patricia. It was my honor to be your local guide and friend in Moscow. Always welcome back! :)
Sarah HughesUnited Kingdom
Alina is a warm and genuine guide who provides an excellent introduction to the splendid city of Moscow.

David WellsUnited Kingdom
Alina was an excelellent guide and a mine of interesting information. She tailored the two day walking tour to suit our needs and took us on a tour of the best architecture on the metro. She was punctual and very friendly and we really enjoyed our time with her. We would recommend her as a guide to anyone who wants to do all the main sights but also wants to get a bit off the main attractions. David & Sally Wells
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David and Sally, thank you for being my tourists, I loved our 2 winter days too! XO
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 ;)

Working through ToursByLocals and spending the day with Alina was like meeting up with an old friend and being able to see the city through the eyes of someone who really loves her home.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ann
Alina and I did 3 hour tour of regions of Moscow other than the Red Square area. She me showed some areas of historical significance as well as ones which are popular with younger residents of Moscow. She also showed me some of the wonderful interiors of the city's subway system. Alina is very knowledgeable about Moscow, as well as other parts of the world she has visited despite her youth. Very enthusiastic, you feel you're with a friend not a tour guide. I highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Candy, thank you for this amazing day! It was an adventure for all of us!
Timothy (Tim) WalkerUnited States
Alina met and exceeded all my expectations. Here English was great; her knowledge of Moscow was perfect for me--as I had very little. Her attitude and smile were added to her narrative. She was flexible for me and knew when to speed up and to slow down. And...she found me a great hotel at a great price. Everything was great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tnank you, TIm! Come to Moscow in winter and we will go sledging or skiing to GOrky Park
Timothy (Tim) WalkerUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Winston, it was such a pleasure to meet you. Welcome back to Moscow anytime ;)
Alina was great. She is a very open person and we had a great time visiting the Kremlin & Red Square with her. We just wished we had more time to visit the inside of the Kremlin and the Armoury. I would definitely recommend her. She is very pleasant to visit Moscow with, she has quite a lot of knowledge. Thanks Alina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Harma! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed my company. Sorry if it was too quick for you in the Kremlin. Its just that if we want to go to the Armory next we need to catch the nearest, session, otherwise we would have to wait 2 hours, losing our pr cious time. Hope you had fun with me like I did with you
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
Patrick KewleyUnited States
Had a fantastic time on my tour with Alina - she was extremely informative and professional, and good company as well. The tour was a blast, I learned a ton, and she really helped me orient myself and find my footing around the city. Alina is very passionate about Moscow and clearly loves to share her city with newcomers. She also had many great tips and ideas for more things to do and try around the city for the duration of my stay. She provided me with an unforgettable introduction to Moscow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was such a pleasure to walk with you around Moscow, Patrick. Really enjoyed our time! Thank you!
