  • Our tour guide Dmitri was the best! He was a Journalist and a writer and gave us the perfect tour. He had personal experience fighting for independence in Kiev so he gave us a real feeling for what had transpired there. I think he travels a good deal of the time so I recommend that everyone try to get a tour with him.

  • Was instructed that tour would begin at European Square and to meet the guide there. However, the guide showed up at my hotel while I was waiting for him two miles away. Lost an hour of tour time because of the confusing instructions. Other than that, my guide Dmytro was courteous and knowledgeable. We spent most of our time at the Caves Monastery, which was very interesting.

  • This tour was amazing. It was a pleasure spending the day walking this beautiful city with such a knowledgable guide. The commentary was somewhat tailored to my interests and viewing the city through a local's eyes was very special. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy covering lots of terrain in this wonderful tour.

  • An amazingly thorough tour - well planned and organized. This is the best way to see Kiev if time is limited - particularly if you don't speak the local languages. Highly enjoyable

  • it was an excellent trip, Maria was articulate, interesting and passionate about her city, whilst being humble and considerate

  • HELEN WAS JUST EXCELLENT PROVIDING INFORMATION AND DRIVG TO VARIOUS SITES IN KIEV. SHE IS VERY FUNNY WITH HER STORIES. SHE TAKES ME TO COFFEE SHOP AND ORDERS SPECIAL UKRAINIAN FING COFFEE FOR ME. LATER WE GO TO DINNER FOR SAMPLE OF VERENECKY. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE.
