Elena went out if her way to accommodate my tour request. We had an awesome afternoon strolling the tours of Vladivostok and unpacking the city's rich history right until she put me on a taxi back to my hotel. Thank you Elena. I look forward to hosting you in South Africa some day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lana! For your feedback and for invitation as well)) It was very nice to walk and talk with you.
This tour was very satisfactory and interesting. Elena was always quick to respond to queries in advance of our cruise and she helped us navigate the immigration requirements to leave the ship for the excursion. Her English is very good and she provided some photographs and other information on laminated pages for us to look at. Elena had a pleasant demeanour and was happy to answer all questions. She got us back to the ship at the agreed upon time. I recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ida, thank you for your feedback! I’m happy to know that your group like my tour!

Elena was a wonderful guide. She was knowledgeable, took us to places we would never have found on our own, and was a very pleasant person to spend two hours with. I highly recommend her. I also want to confirm what Elena had told me many times, but which the cruise line contradicted, which is that it is totally, completely possible to walk off the ship with just your U.S. (and probably any other) passport without being asked for a visa or for proof of a guide. I did, with no problems or questions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joyce for your kind feedback!)

Elena K provided an engaging and informative walk through old Vladivostok. The damp foggy weather was forgotten as she took me to places and told me stories I would otherwise have missed altogether on my own. Her excellent English language skills and depth of knowledge appreciated greatly. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Helen thank you for your appreciation! It`s always a pleasure to do tour for such curious travellers!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Daehwan!
I took the half day walking tour. Elena was quite informative, told us the history of the city that we were not aware of. Upon our question, she recommended us a good Russian restaurant. We tried it for dinner and it was very nice. Thank you Elena.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kanako! It was very nice to meet your couple)

We had a great tour with Elena. She met us on time in hotel lobby, was very informative about the area. She also took us to places we asked to go to and helped us buy the right SIM card at the best place. Weather was terrible but that didn't seem to bother her. Her English was good, and she understood what we said.
