The service and execution were great. I was written to a week or two beforehand and asked what I was particularly interested in. The guide (Dmitry) was excellent, educated, very good knowledge of German, empathic.

Very experienced, personable guide. Great timing, interesting background information. Great for getting an overview and seeing some of the city's absolute highlights. Definitely try it out!

Nataliya is a local guide for German who did a great custom tour for me and is a very pleasant person. She was very flexible and adapted everything to suit the weather.

The tour was very well planned and the guide Dmitry was happy to respond to my wishes, but also had very interesting suggestions of his own.

Thank you, Anastasia. I really enjoyed my tour of wonderful Kiev.
