Gintautas from Vilnius: Thank you
Our group of friends from Vilnius and Kaunas enjoyed very much the Kaliningrad tour guided by Marina. She is a really good guide: she knows much more than she can tell during a short tour, she knows well what is most interesting for visitors, and the density of information and emotion in her stories is very high. Moreover, after the first few sentences of her stories, you start feeling like listening not to a guide but to your fiend, who loves her city and knows the people, history and stories of this city from different points of view.

Hanna B.: From Vienna to Kaliningrad
In summer 2019 I spent two entire days with Marina. She is an excellent guide who was always willing to customize our tours according to my special interests and needs. Her deep knowledge of history, politics and everyday life in the city and the whole region of kaliningrad, cultural differences-and last but not the least her superb driving skills-made these two days the most interesting and instructive of my ten days in the region.

Espen: Two days trip (Coast and Kaliningrad vincinity
When having interest in history, all eras post ice age, especially the last 150 years in her area. Marina shows her characteristics to the fully, even if she were asked questions outside her scope. If she is presented a fun fact or information, she "suck" the knowledge and asks back with seeking information to increase her knowledge base. I am glad to help. Her appearance is very friendly, and as a foreigner it is very helpful to have her knowledge in good spoken English. She acts also as a splendid intepretor, and manges this task at the outmost. I would recommend her ... just terrific and even with a laughter and a big smile. Sometimes hard to get ...... I wish her good luck in future work…

Mortee: Great inputs
I had a lot of help from Marina planning my trip. She is fluent in english and seems really nice and polite. Marina had great inputs on crossing the border, transportation in Kaliningrad and sights to see. Unfortunately I did not go through with her company. As I was late with my visa Marina turned occupied on another assignment but she still wanted to help me out and arranged for another guide to accomplish the services for my needs. I have no doubt turning to Marina on later occasions.

Joris: Excellent again
After one year, I recently returned to Kaliningrad for a second visit to the city and its surrounding region. Again Marina was my tour guide, on two full-day trips: first a visit to the east of Kaliningrad Oblast, with notable Teutonic remains and some Prussian and even Napoleontic reminiscences (Neman, Sovietsk, Chernyachovsk). And on the second day, we first paid a visit to the Teutonic Castle at Valdau, not too far from the city of Kaliningrad: there we had a very and detailed interested tour by a local Russian guide, which Marina translated instantaneously into fluent English. Later that same day, we drove on to Baltijsk, for a renewed and more extensive visit to this town and its harbour, including a fantastic speed boat trip.
I can only conclude what I already said last year: excellent tour guide, with perfect English skills and a very detailed knowledge of all aspects of the region!
