GALINA

Speaks English Speaks Spanish

If you ask me to name the most enjoyable and thrilling things in the world, travelling will be beyond any doubt among my top-3. Travelling like no other activity provides us with the opportunity to feel connected to the rest of the world: other cultures, languages, traditions. It transforms us into explorers. Every trip, even a small one, is an amazing dive into a new reality.

Moscow is a fascinating and one-of-a-kind city: a dynamic metropolis with its terrific speed of life, at the same time bearing traces of the grand Russian history. Moscow, like a magician, can grant you any wish. Would you like to find a tranquil corner of pristine nature? Moscow has a lot of them. Would you like to explore buildings that remember the times of Ivan the Terrible or the Soviet dominion? At your service. Breath-taking radiant sky-scrapers? Certainly.Moscow overwhelms its guests with its diversity and dense mixture of styles, epochs and cultures. Unplanned and unrestricted, it emerged over the centuries as you see it now. Fast, sometimes eclectic and always awe-inspiring, it will never fail to make you fall in love with it.

I wasn’t born in Moscow, but visited it regularly since my childhood. When I moved here to study I didn’t need to adapt or blend in – for some reason I immediately felt at home. I love its speed, and for me it’s an ocean of opportunities. I like to stroll along the central streets, to relax in Kolomenskoye and Tsaritsyno parks, I bear endless love and nostalgia towards the beautiful main building of the University and its campus.

I admire the fact that nowadays tourism tends to profundity and personalized approach. People are no longer satisfied with standard group tours filled with bare facts and clichés. I will do my best to help you make your acquaintance with Moscow authentic and special.

What other tourists say about Galina?

"On my first visit to Moscow I took the Must See's tour with Galina and it was excellant. The 1 tour was fantastic as Galina was extreemly knowledgable about the city & culture. She was also able to quickly adapt to the fast pace that I prefer to move at which allowed us to see a few extra sites not generally on the tour. She was very engaging and conversational throughout the tour and lunch following. I would recommend Moscow Private Tours to anybody that is visiting the city and if possible request Galina as your guide."
