We were with Oleg Alexandrov on one day intensive trip from Moscow to Vladimir and Suzdal. Everything was precisely according to the schedule, good meal, nice talk. Visiting this two cities gave us possibility to see a different part of Russia. Thank you.

My Wife and I had a wonderful vacation in Russia in Aug 2017 largely due to Oleg Alexandrov! Not only is he a military encyclopedia of the events of the specific area, but also has amazing insights into the day-to-day aspects of the ordinary people before, during and after the times that occurred in the area of the tour. Russia is not yet a "tour friendly" country and Oleg was an invaluable asset in resolving any issue or misunderstanding that occurred during our tours and made himself totally available to assist in dining and shopping excursions as well. We highly recommend Oleg for tours in Russia and we would gladly go on a tour with him anywhere in the World. Oleg has tremendous knowledge and brings life to the history!

Oleg was the guide for most of the tour during my stay in Russia. His expertise of the war and areas helped shape my view better. Mamayev Kurgan was definitely the highlight of the trip but we also visited some less well known areas to gain a better understanding of the war. Oleg was also very helpful dealing with locals and other arrangements where Russian was needed.

Oleg was our local guide on a WWII trip to Russia including St. Petersburg (Leningrad), Moscow, and Volgograd (Stalingrad). He was a wealth of knowledge and well acquainted with the ins-and-outs in all 3 different locations. His knowledge went well-beyond the battlefield aspects of the tour. He kept things in order, helped us stay away from "tourist traps", and was an overall great guy. I highly recommend him.

Hi All,
We have recently visited Moscow this September 2017. We have booked our trip from dubai itself and Mr. Oleg was our guide. I must tell he is very understanding, Co-operative, friendly, Warmhearted person and awesome person by heart. He made our trip awesome with memories plus being vegetarian this was best meal I had in Moscow trip. He really respected our choice and has put in his effort to prepare meal accordingly. I didn’t notice that he compromised on our food, trip or answering our any questions related with Russia history. Trip become more memorable when you get a good company and also, he was so kind that wherever we used to tell him to stop for photography, he used too and even he took ample of pics of ours during entire trip. In short we became more of friends. If you really want a memorable trip I would strongly recommend him.

Sorry Oleg, for dropping my reviews late here and thanks for giving us awesome memories of trip. I hope you still remember us ;) :)
