Sasha is a delightful lady. On time, safe driver, conscientious, knowledgeable about Salem and very pleasant to spend the day with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Curious to know which part of the tour did not meet your expectations and why wouldn’t you bring this point while I could still make for it. Thanks, Sasha
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer why this tour experience appears to have fallen below our guides’ normal high standards.
Sasha is a pleasant guide who knows her stuff. Trouble was that for this particular tour I felt there was a little lack of content. As a walking tour, even Sasha said some of the Boston Jewish historical buildings were no longer so the former identity was just not there. But what was there we saw and the Holocaust Memorial and Vilna Synangogue were highlights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: well.. this is a historical tour. Sorry to disappoint you, but Brandeis and Filene are both dead for a long time. I am glad, you liked the Holocaust Memorial and Vilna Shul. Vilna Shul is rarely open to the public due to reconstruction, but I would always try to get an exclusive tour of that unique, L-shaped 150 y.o. Synagogue at the Beacon Hill. Have a great the rest of your trip!

Sasha is very good and caring person who knows her way around Salem so made seeing major sights and some off the tourist trail very efficient. Salem a great place to visit,
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! And for tomorrow’s plans, go to Cape Ann. Visit Hammond Castle, Paper House, Downtown Rockport, and Halibut State Park. Kids will be thrilled! Shabbat Shalom! Sasha

Sasha was a great host and even found a cranberry field and farm that she let us look at, even though it was past the harvesting season. On the way back to the hotel she even took us through the Boston area and pointed out buildings and such.

Sasha was a great host and very knowledgeable about the area. She let us know in advance that some of the areas would be closed due to it being the end of the season.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks! Come again to Boston to explore more of it!
Patricia GrantUnited States
Sasha was prompt and accomodating. I have mobility issues and she always remembered that.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
We took this tour to see Rhode Island and the Mansions and the Cliff Walk. Sasha was a great guide- she emailed beforehand to ensure she knew exactly how many mansions we wanted to see, how much walking we could do etc. She was always mindful of our needs. We really enjoyed our day with her and would advise every visitor to get out of Boston for one day to see this gorgeous coast and the awesome mansions of the Gilded Age. We especially recommend Elms (Servant tour outstanding),Marble house and Breakers
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Win, thank you for a great feedback. Should you happen to have another day off, I would recommend my Cape Ann tour, with Hammond Castle Visit! Hammond was one of the greatest innovator in the beginning of 20th century and he is second greatest inventor after Edison. He is not that widely known, because long time, american navy considered him a German Spy during WWII, however later, his name was fully rehabilitated. He was the one to invent remote control in 1920th, for example. I am sure, you'd love this!
Rob GrossmanUnited States
We organized this tour for my frail 80 yo mother and 12 year son. Sasha provided an expert and comfortable tour tailored to their needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Rob! Glad I could help. Next time, we should make a trip to Gillette Stadium, home of New England Patriots, New England Revolution, and University of Massachusetts Amherst Football. Your son will be delighted!

Sasha was a great guide for my tour and I'd highly recommend her. She was great during the preparations for my trip and went over and above making sure all my questions and requests were met. Really great. Many greatful thanks for a splendid day. I'd do it all over again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a real fun showing you the best of Boston Street Art, connecting you with the artists, and driving you around. An unusual tour for an extraordinary person of interest :)

Excellent tour. Sasha met us on time at our hotel. Her car was comfortable and she drove us around all locations that we wanted, with the flexibility to stop for photos when we wanted or take short walks to explore on briefly on foot
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Have a great the rest of your stay!

Sasha is very polite and nice person. She showed us Hammond Castle, Paper House and Halibut point. She also bring us to charming lobster place in Rockport for lunch. I appreciate Sasha's work and I will hire her in the future.

It was nice and easy tour with excellent guide. Sasha was very knowledgeable about her town. We really liked Farm Pond swimming additional to all other activities. I will recommend Sasha to my friends.
Doug FurnierUnited States
On our Canada/New England cruise, we (two of us) met up with Sasha for a walking tour of Boston. She was very pleasant and showed us around to many of the sights and sounds of the city. Sasha quickly recognized we were both shutterbugs and she showed us many great spots. She was very patient with us as we both took lots of pictures. A very enjoyable day.
Excellent tour. Excellent guide. Sasha helps very well in taking photos. I really recommend this tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

Wow, what an awesome find! From the beginning to the end Sasha was wonderful. She helped me arrange the perfect tour for my friends even though I was 7 states away! She took care of my friends like family, even offering my nephew's fiancé a rain coat when the weather turned less than perfect. She really goes above and beyond to give great service. Everyone raved about how much fun they had and to have someone speak their native tongue on a tour in a new land. Spasibo, Sasha.
Sasha BarbarashUnited States
Sasha is a great storyteller. We've used to live in Sherborn, while our kids attended high school, and I thought I know everything about this small town, but apparently I did not know a half of it! She is quite, but she was very patient with our various demands, and she was willing to put in twice as more time to show us everything we wanted and refused the tips! I am very pleased with the tour, and I will hire Sasha again, when I come with my older granddaughter this winter.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you... :)
Randy MarloweUnited States
Sasha is a nice and likable person. She is not however a guide I can recommend. Boston is a big and noisy city and she is quiet and English is not her first language. Consequently she is hard to hear and harder to understand. Her knowledge of the Boston area is not nearly as good as I had wished. I wish her well but would not use her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am quite, and yes, English is not my first language. It's all says in About Me section. I will be looking for a voice amplifier device, so everything can hear me better. However, I warned you that this is a high-pace tour, so if we were touring as expected, you won't notice the difference as I had just enough information for every step if we speed up the tour. Sorry, it did not work out for you and have a wonderful the rest of your trip. Sasha

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry to hear that you are not completely satisfied with this tour. I showed you everything you asked and beyond that; I made a number of beautiful pictures free of charge (usually, this service costs extra on my tours), I reduced the cost of the tour to the very minimal available, provided with snacks where i wasn't supposed to, and I paid from my own pocket when you run out of money. I even provided you with extra handouts of the places we've visited, so you may educate yourself in your spare time.
