* A traveler said: "Alina is a passionate photographer and a very understanding and open-minded person. I decided to book a photo walk last minute on the departure day from L.A.. Alina contacted me promptly per e-mail and also picked me up at my hotel in Downtown. My credit card was temporarely blocked due to overprotective security measures of a Swiss bank exactly on the morning of our photo tour. I had no access to my Uber App. Alina organized Lift using her private phone and also agreed to work longer to make sure that we cover all the pre-discussed photo spots. The photos are beautiful and edited according to my taste! Vivid colours, cool ideas like posing with a pink street telephone and donuts:). Many thanks!"
