On 28th July I sent a request for a greeter for the 19th September, and donated USD25 as requested. Since then I've heard nothing, and e-mails to Alexey have gone unanswered. It's no use trying to get my money back through PayPal, as it is a donation and no goods or services attach to donations. A nice little scam.
Don't waste your money on Moscow Greeters unless you enjoy balancing their books.

Julia - She is the lady behind our incredibly amazing trip to Saint Petersburg. A very humble, polite, friendly lady who met us as our guide but by the day became a friend from Russia who was there whenever needed. Although we found everyone very humble and gentle in Moscow and St. Petersburg, however, she made us feel comfortable, safe and more importantly home. With her (just in a day), we walked through all important places in St. Pet. She walked with us all throughout the day (appx. 22 km) to show us around and was still energetic & excited abt everything. Being a history teacher, she was well informed about all the structures, monuments, museums in the city and we (being outsider) enjoyed her company and hands-on knowledge a lot. She was fun and I 100% recommend her to all my friends, colleagues and acquaintances.

Picked us from the great Budapest hotel, an easy half hour walk to Kremlin.
All the good reviews you read about her, she is all that, and more.
Explains why and where all the history and the site, and walk through the Metropole hotel. Why the square is called RED how the sites come to be there, see many churches or less,. You decide what to include, with three stops to admire the Arts in Moscow's subway. and you see the original house of Leo Tolstoy.
Lunch in a restaurant with healthy Russian food.
You will enjoy and tip generously and be greatful for all the talent and history.

Yesterday we had the unique opportunity to make a long tour of Moscow with Marina, and I really recommend it to anyone who wants to discover varied interesting places and better understand the city.
Already before arriving Marina contacted me, asked what was interesting us, and already gave some advice (how to come from the airport, which tickets to book in advance,  recommendations of restaurants and theaters, ...).
On the day of the tour, Marina picked us at the hotel (a few stations from the center), so that it was easy for us to meet. She first showed the neighborhood (not only interesting, but also practical to know good places to eat!), and then she walked us to the center while explaining many things on the way.
Marina then guided us through the center, and we discussed history as well as personal experiences along the way, giving us very interesting insights into Moscow.
After that we had lunch together in a very good Georgian restaurant (place and plates recommended by Marina) and had very interesting discussions.
We continued visiting a bit further (the impressive cathedral Christ the Savior and nice views on the Kremlin from the river). Finally, Marina gave us further recommendations of things to visit for the following days, and took us back to the place where we had to go afterwards.
It was the first time we were visiting a city with a Greeter and we found it great to be able to visit with an inhabitant of the city (and will do it again)! Thanks again Marina!
