Dear Galina,

Thank you for your assistance during my recent trip to Russia. Your knowledge and expertise were invaluable.

Feel free to use me as a reference concerning your language skills and other qualifications.

Best wishes,

Dear Ms. Formina:

Thank you very much for your assistance during our recent meetings in St. Petersburg.

We appreciated your professionalism very much. Your insights into Russiona culture, protocol, and history were an added bonus to the outstanding work you did in providing interpretation for our meetings.

Warmest regards,

Without hesitation, my family and I recommend the services of Galina Formina should they be needed for travel or visiting in Russia particularly in St. Petersburg or Moscow.

We have known Ms. Formina for a dozen years, and as former Deputy Secertary of State, I can affirm she has served as guide, translator and interpreter to many U.S. government officials including two U.S. Presidents.

We visited St Petersburg in 2003. Galina made our trip totally unforgettable.

She fulfilled all our wishes, made last minute changes, improvised when
ever needed, and even helped us to find a dog.

She is an exceptional person, pleasant, polite, intelligent and knowledgeable, and the most wonderful guide we have ever had

The Hermitage is the crown jewell of St. Peterburg, but the highlight of our trip to Russia was our visit to Moscow.

What a booming city it has become. Lights, camera, glitz! Fabulous sites, fine restaurants and amazing history.

Certainly not the Moscow of our childhood. No trip to Russia would be complete without seeing Red Square and how life has changed dramatically.
Not only does Galina know all the history you'd ever want to hear, she's an expert at cutting through the bureaucracy. Just because Red Square is officially closed for the day, fear not. You'll find yourselves the only tourist on the inside. She's an amazing guide.

As a journalist, I am used to all access all the time. As a tourist, I am a demanding client. I want to be able to go anywhere, anytime. And understand what I'm hearing and seeing. I've never met anybody better than Galina. I'd take her along for work or play.

It is with pleasure that I recommend Galina Formina as your Russian travel guide. Galina is a very professional and highly qualified interpreter.

Galina is intelligent and knowledgeable about Russia and can open "back doors" you would never think possible. On top of all this, she is a very pleasant and capable lady. The "True Test" is, I would engage her services again and highly recommend her to my family and friends.

Our four days in St. Petersburg with Galina were fantastic. She showed us all the sights, took us to the best restaurants, and offered us a true insider's look into the city. Her logistical arrangements, knowledge, and passion for the city and its history made all the difference.
