Alexander is a well travelled intellect. He was very knowledgeable about the area attractions and history. He is also a good story teller and all around personable and friendly. The DC history walk was a good value. I recommend and would repeat.

Alex is amazing! I went to Washington with grandmother, who doesn't speak English, but Russian. Alex and we got along pretty well. It was very interesting to know more about DC, American presidents and American history in general. Our tour was on a very cold November morning. And on that day it was only me and my grandma in the group, but Alex still held a tour for us. I really appreciated that! Alex is super nice, kind and knowledgeable. Highly recommend his tours!

Все очень понравилось. Хоть я уже днём ранее успел прогуляться по некоторым местам, после этой прогулки узнал много мест с другой и расширенной стороны. Редкая возможность, ещё и на русском языке!

Best historical site tour in DC! Alex is deeply knowledgeable & showed us sites, we had never seen, despite visiting the monuments on several occasions. In addition, he shared amazing facts about each site that were eye opening/incredibly interesting. He was incredibly courteous and even kept our two young daughters engaged throughout the tour. I strongly recommend Alexander, if you are looking for a unique, fun facts filled experience.

Впечатление от экскурсии превзошли мои ожидания. Я редко заказываю экскурсии - информация доступна в путеводителях и в интернете. Поэтому очень ценю индивидуальный подход Алекса, который сочетает знание предмета и неформальный способ подачи, когда гиду можно задать любой вопрос и тут же получить ответ. Экскурсия прошла в форме дружеской прогулки и беседы с интересным собеседником. Рекомендую это впечатление!

I can’t say enough about what a fantastic job Alexander did. I was hosting two visitors from Kazakhstan, saw Alexander’s tour in Russian and thought, “This should be good.” It wasn’t. It was perfect. Alexander was fluent in Russian and was very personable: my Kazakh friends adored him! His Russian flowed as we toured various sites and every couple of minutes he had my friends laughing. He is also among the least pretentious highly educated and accomplished individuals I have ever met. Highly recommended!
