Slava is absolutely amazing! She took us on a tour of Mezhyhirya Residence and ended the day with her Maydan account and her photos from the Revolution. Her access at Mezhyhirya Residence was exceptional. We were the only people inside the home and her knowledge is second to none. She is friendly and delightfully social. Her experience at Maydan is sobering and her knowledge of the events and the effects in the aftermath is beyond thorough. If you are going to tour anything in Kyiv it needs to be with Slava. Thorough knowledge of Ukrainian history and proud to share it with the world. We will see you again when we return! слава Україні

The cemetary tour was amazing. I loved the stories that were told. She used videos and photos to help tell the stories of those buried there. The monuments and tombstones were incredible. The cemetary is set up like a beautiful park.
I highly recommend this tour.

We booked the tour to the former villa of former president Viktor Janukovych a week in advance for Sunday.
Larissa came on time to the hotel and we went by car about 30 minutes to the area. In the beginning we had a a tour through the villa. There are also regular tours. You go in with the other people but Larissa made sure we were always a bit ahead of the others so we could make good pictures. She told us a lot of things about the political time of Janukovych and the history of the area before and after him living there. This tour took about 1 hour.

Then we had the possibility to explore the area by golf car. Be aware that it's not a private golf car, that means that the breaks are restricted by the driver. We had for example ten minutes to see the car collection and the autriches. There were another 5 minutes at a small house, were Putin lived as a guest.

All in all we really liked the tour and can absolutely recommend taking the tour with Friendly Kiev and Larissa!

Still some things to recommend:
- don't go on the weekend if you don't have to! The area is very popular for Ukrainians and it was very, very crowded (we were counting wedding photo shoots and stopped at 9 ;) )
- if you go on the weekends, plan more time! There will be waiting times to enter the building and also to get the golf car. (With the transport from Kiev our tour took almost 6 hours.)

Generally I would recommend to offer the tour with more hours. We would have liked to walk a bit through the park, see the cars more longer and so on.

We went on 3 tours with this company. Initially we did the walking tour of Old Kiev, which was brilliantly escorted by Slava, owner of the company, explaining the history of Kiev. This inspired us to do the Segway Tour, a good fun way of seeing a bit more of the city. The next day she took us out of town to the ex president’s house about 45mins drive. Seeing is believing here - the opulence of one man is amazing.

Would throughly recommend booking anything through these people. Thank you Slava for making our trip.

I did a 3-hour tour with Sviatoslava. She is the manager of this tour agency. She is wonderful, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful. I enjoyed a lot the tour and she didn't hesitate accommodating me for my travel requirements. We visited the Kiev highlights within 3 hours. I never felt rushed and we saw the main touristics spots of the city (Independence Square, St. Sophia's Cathedral, Kiev Pechersk Lavra, Golden Gate, The Motherland Monument)
I strongly recommend this agency.

We visited the ex-president estate in early January. Our guide Olga was fantastic in providing a thorough review of the estate, plus we had round trip transportation to/from downtown Kiev. Olga was friendly, informative, and is a great guide in English. We highly recommend Kiev Friendly and Olga for anyone who wants to see not just this particular site outside Kiev, but any place in Ukraine to gain historical knowledge of a city with lots of culture and friendly people!

I would highly recommend Kiev Friendly Tours! I was well looked after from the first contact; organising my private tour was made very easy by Sviatoslava and I really enjoyed spending my day in Kiev with Olga. She was fun, enthusiastic and most importantly, very knowledgeable!

I was only in Kiev on a flight layover, and Kiev Friendly Tours ensured that I had nothing to worry about in terms of getting to and from the airport. My limited time in the city was very well spent on a walking tour of the city highlights, and visits to the Pechersk Lavra and WWII museum. I cannot wait to come back!
