Elena
My name is Lena. I was born and have lived all my life in Moscow. I finished acting university and pedagogical university where I have learned languages. Right now, I work in theater, and I am a tour guide for three years already. I like traveling. I have been almost in each country in Europe. History was always my hobby; that's why I am so glad that I can share knowledge, stories, and of course, my passion for my favorite city! You have wonderful opportunity to fall in love with the best city!
Tanya
My name is Tanya, and I am born and bred in Moscow. I have worked as a tour guide for over four years. It is a joy to me to share my knowledge of Russian history and culture as well as some city secrets with my tourists.

As a keen traveler myself, I totally understand how important it is to have an unforgettable trip. It is always a challenge that I like to take. I have a lot of passion for what I am doing and always work hard to become a better guide.

I'll do my best to show not only the historical aspects but also the local life and current Russian reality. I prefer to keep the tours fun and interactive yet knowledgeable.
Diana
When I was 4y.o, somehow instead of watching Pokémon, I used to be more attracted to discovery and history channels. This childhood passion has dwelled in me throughout my entire life!
I've been an exchange student a few times.

Thus, just like many of us, I'm a huge fan of traveling. And this infatuation of mine led me to choose linguistics as my major. However, my spare time was always dedicated either to history or art. Also, one of my hobbies is to stroll around my favorite city and learn something new about it every time.

I believe I'm the luckiest person since I could find a job based on my skills and passions! I am always truly excited to share my knowledge and love to mysterious and charming Moscow with anyone interested!
