    Well organised tour of the most beautiful places in Kyiv. A lot of flexibility allowed as well.
    The tour guide was very polite and knowledgeable.

    The tour itself was OK. It was mainly geared towards pro Ukraine Nationalism and we could tell the guide clearly had an opinion. We really didn't learn anything about the city other than what was pertinent to her political views. We had already booked a tour to see part of what was included in the city tour and she didn't even suggest anything different to see to replace that. She was not friendly and seemed to want to be anywhere else but with us. When we went to leave instead of letting us take a taxi of our choosing she "suggested" to call a taxi which turned out to be one of he friend and took us to the wrong location and then we had to end up paying more for the ride. I also went to give her a tip at the end of the tour and she didn't even thank me. She should not be dealing with people especially tourist who have never visited Kiev. Had we not had other tours were the people were much nicer this would have been the impression we took away from this country. I do not recommend this tour.

    I had a truly wonderful day in Kiev with a private guide who knew so much about the local history and who spoke flawless English. I saw so much more than I would be able to on my own. Thanks for an amazing day!

    Everything on this tour was great. Our guide Helena was very friendly and full of interesting information. The tour was a great combination of walking and sightseeing by car.

  • 24-May-2018

    Very good tour! My guide was very knowledgeable on Kiev and the history of the Ukraine. We saw all of the sites over the course of a 6 hour tour. I asked to go to a restaurant where we could get authentic Ukrainian food and the guide knew exactly where to go to provide me with a wonderful meal and experience. I highly recommend this tour. It did consist of 6 hours of walking so make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

    Very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide and we hit all the main sites.

    MIROSLAVA was an excellent tour guide with local knowledge of history, culture and almost everything about the city! The time flew by as we walked around the city exploring the different places, architecture and events that unfolded from hundreds of years ago to the more recent events. Totally recommended!

    Helena our tour guide was absolutely amazing - 5 stars does not even cut it. Her historical knowledge of the city and the sights was absolutely top notch. Thank you again for the amazing tour.

  • 19-Nov-2017

    I can't recommend this tour enough - great introductions to Kyiv and very informative way to see all the key sights. The trip is also private meaning there is lots of flexibility and you have your own personal guide taking you around.
