MyBestGuide
I went on the Izmaylovo flea market and Kremlim tour with Alina in June. She was a fantastic tour guide - very enthusiastic (even early in the morning!) and knowledgeable about all areas of Moscow, and also friendly and personable, with lots of great suggestions for where else for me to visit once the tour had ended. I would definitely recommend booking a tour with Alina for a personal and insightful tour of Moscow!
Market guide
I booked the Izmailovo market tour. Nastya was my guide and she was delightful, informative and very helpful, not only did she help get some great souvenirs she also explained the metro which helped me get around Moscow with ease. She know a lot about the history of the city and i was interested in everything she had to stay. Alina was excellent at setting up this tour keeping informed and updated about my guide. would definitely use them again next time i am in Russia....
