Filled with theaters, museums, religious sites, modern buildings and ancient ruins, the city of Kiev is the center of Ukrainian culture. The Monastery of the Caves, founded in 1015, and Saint Sophia Cathedral, founded in 1037, are both World Heritage Sites. The Museum of the Great Patriotic War, topped by the massive Motherland Statue, provides gorgeous views of the city below.

I booked a Friday tour and it got rescheduled to Saturday, but given everything going on with Covid, I understood. My tour guide was great about including some additional tours since my tour was moved. She gave me a great tour of Kviv. I even got to participate in a protest for people from Belarus. Chornobyl was an amazing experience. I learned a lot and have life long memories.

Ukraine has been developing a gastronomic revolution over the past several years. Unfortunately, most of us visiting only have a limited time to experience the tastes of modern Ukrainian restaurants; having a knowledgeable gastro-tour guide can ensure we make the most of our time in Ukraine. Alexi operates a food blog, restaurant critic, and restaurant promotion site. He is connected to the best gastronomic establishments in 5 major cities in Ukraine and is uniquely connected to the pulse of his country’s changing gastronomic landscape. He is a great traveling companion, a fun guy, and a knowledgeable host. He has arranged for me a tour of the finest coffees in Kiev. A tour of Kiev’s best craft beer and microbreweries. And one of the greatest surprises was his cocktail tour of the secret speakeasies of Kiev… secret places with the best mixologists making super amazing cocktails… and when I say this, I don’t mean the average cocktail… but WOW over the top mixtures of subtle tastes and beauty. Burgers, steaks (oh my god!), and classics… he knows where the best of any Cuisine can be found… Consider asking him for Georgian food sometime… He can also usually facilitate a meeting with chefs, owners, or mixologists. Alexi speaks English and knows the restaurant world Ukraine like no one else. He has a great humor and you will have memories that last a lifetime. I can not imagine Visiting Ukraine without seeing Alexi! No regrets!

Your guide will tell you about life in Ukraine, culture, politics, youth life. We will not bring you to bars with cheap beer and poor service during this private night tour. All people have different tastes for alcohol, especially cocktails – some like Bloody Mary, and some prefer White Russian. Therefore, we decided not to include drinks in the Bar Crawl price. Guests order drinks at their discretion. The average price of a drink is 5-10 euros.

This is a gorgeous place, especially now, in the spring. The nature is wonderful, the territory of the park is very well-groomed. After the president's escape, people stayed here to look after and take care of the place. The house inside is completely different, made with bad taste, in the royal style. Seems like the person had problems with his ego. The tour is good, the guide is very knowledgeable about the current situation in Ukraine. So come here in good weather and enjoy your walk! P.S. to get inside the retro car museum you need to take a golf cart, it’s extra experiences.

Went on a afternoon visit to a foster home of a lady who takes care of 11 kids who are without parents or parents who are unable to care for them. The home owner and the children were very kind and welcoming. They were very happy with the large donation of food to help make this expense more easy. The Guid I had from the city to the foster home was very nice and spoke perfect English.the nice thing is round-trip transportation is covered and the guest (you) don't have to pay for this cost. I would highly recommend this experience because you get to help out children in need.
