Personal City Guides - References for Roman
I invite you to check my references (listed here in the reverse chronological order):
I would recommend Roman as a personal guide to anyone visiting Moscow.
I contacted Roman well before my trip and he was very helpful in assisting me to plan my itinerary prior to me going to Russia.
He is very interesting and knowledgeable about lots of aspects of Russian history, architecture and religious iconography. Roman s English is very good and having him as a guide made travelling in Moscow much easier and translating signs and menus for me meant that I was never lost or hungry in Moscow.
Roman came in to my hotel to meet me and then made sure that I got to do what I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it. His knowledge of Moscow s nightlife was very thorough too. He then took me right back to my hotel at the end of the evening.
I think that Roman took a lot of time and care to ensure I had a great time in Moscow and I recommend him very highly to anyone.

Roman is an excellent guide and a very interesting guy. Spending time with someone who lives in Moscow made my trip much more interesting. He is a Moscow expert and he made everything very easy. Though I am usually an independent traveller, I must admit that getting in and out of the various ticket booths and coat checks at the Kremlin is much easier when you have a Russian speaker with you. Roman's English is excellent and we had no problems communicating. He is very knowledgable about the sites in Moscow and he is an expert on religious iconography, which made the vistit to St. Basil's Cathedral much more interesting. I highly recommend Roman to anyone planning a visit to Moscow.

Hello, my name is Oscar and I would like that the people that go inside of this reference page know how is Roman. I found a very handsome boy but overall a very polite man. From the first moment he know what I wanted and if not necessary to explain to much. By the day the best Moscow sights guide and in the night the best gay places guide. Has been fantastic to know him , I feel ok all the moments and of course I save a lot of the money with him. Restaurants less price, taxis less price, and escorts services less price. Can you need more?? If you don't know which one choice I tell you that Roman is a very very good bet. Regards,

Just wanted to thank you for all your efforts while we were in Russia.
You were extreemly helpful to us and we appreciated your time and efforts. It was a pleasure to meet you, thank you for always being on time and watching out for our welfare. I would gladly recommend that anyone traveling to Moscow use you as a guide. We both felt very comfortable with you. Your knowledge of Moscow and your ability to tell us the history was especially helpful. If you ever decide you want to come to San Francisco, please feel free to contact us. We would love to show you our area.

I contacted Roman to have him show me the night life of Moscow. He was very quick with responses and extremely accommodating. We met up and had a very nice dinner, with great conversation and lots of laughing! Roman has a very keen sense of humor and very easy to talk to. We then stopped by a club called the 3 monkeys, a little quite (wednesday night). I would highly recommend Roman to show you his city, he is very polite and best of all makes you feel very safe in the city. I am looking forward to returning to Moscow and discovering more night clubs with Roman.

Roman was the second Moscow guide I hired of the many on offer. The first guide I tried was unable to show me any more than the regular tourist traps. If only I d found Roman first! He was fantastic company, extremely well presented and we sat and chatted for some time as he listened to what I wanted to do and see. The few places he didn t immediately know were only a call away and I was shown a fantastic afternoon and night of clubbing, dancing and partying which made the rest of my Moscow stay very enjoyable. I am about to return to Moscow and my very first call will be to Roman! The clubs and pubs open and close so quickly in this fast and crazy city that no guide book could possibly match the service Roman provides!
If you want to make your stay in moskau pleasent, than the service of Roman is good for you! I enjoyed his relaxed presence and the ability to go to true russian places with him as guide. As reliability is important in a town where it can be difficult to be understood- Roman will help you in all questions to make your stay a great experience.
I recently spent one week in Moscow I contacted roman (email@example.com)- via my computer. roman wrote me back after I told him what I wanted to do and see. Roman and friends picked me up at the airport with a driver. Roman was an excellent guide-he showed me the sights of Moscow. He was very knowledgeable about history etc. Roman is extremely charming with a great smile. He is young very handsome, and his English is perfect. He showed me the nightlife of Moscow-it was awesome. Roman is very trustworthy and reliable. He also showed me where I could find caviar for a low price, and he also arranged for a ticket for the bolshoi opera. Roman saved me a lot of money-for instance the opera ticket was only $10- a German couple sitting next to me paid $100 for the same ticket by going through a tour operator. roman negotiated a very low price for taxis-by myself I would have to pay five times as much. Roman also showed me the metro system. He showed me how I could save money by buying a reduced ticket for ten trips. Roman also had a very wonderful back up. Victor filled in whenever roman had to work. They found fantastic affordable restaurants. Because of roman I had the most wonderful time in Moscow-anybody who signs up with him should consider themselves very lucky. I will recommend him to all my friends. From the Midwest in the USA
Roman was my guide for my third trip to Moscow in July 2003. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about Moscow. Roman has a very good working knowledge of English which allowed him to converse easily with me. I not only had a chance to see the sights but also experience Russian cuisine. Roman took me to many nightclubs so that I could experience the wonderful Russian nightlife. He is also trained in the martial arts so that no matter where you go you will feel safe. Its like having a body guard as a bonus. Behind the scenes is Roman's other half Victor who helps Roman coordinate anything you desire to make your trip totally wonderful. On top of all this Roman has a great personality and a beautiful smile! A smile to die for!
My name is Alex. I have visited Moscow in May,2003. I'd be desirable to note highly professional work of my personal guide. Roman is the cheerful, charming guy, the pleasant interlocutor, having encyclopaedic knowledge of sights of Moscow. It was really the unforgettable trip full of impressions and emotions. For very short time I have grown fond of Moscow. I have seen the most impressing views of your capital with my guide. We have visited the Red Square,the Kremlin, the Tretyakov Gallery, Arbat, some nightclubs and other places.Thank you very much for your work and the best recommendations for my friend.
