Safely visiting Ukraine as a tourist in the summer of 2020 was possible thanks to Sviata and Olga. Firstly, Sviata very kindly explained to me the protocols and procedures for safely and legally entering Ukraine in the times of COVID-19 and even helped me find a clean, safe, trustworthy hotel for my stay. Once inside Ukraine, Sviata gave me a very fun and informative driving tour of the capital city Kyiv (also known as Kiev) and was also able to arrange a day trip to the Mezhyhirya Park (home of ex-President Yanukovich) for the next day. I highly, *highly* recommend Sviata's tours to Mezhyhirya, since she knows the complex and its history very well and is often able to arrange VIP access to parts of the former Yanukovich estate that are typically closed off. However, no visit to Kyiv is complete without learning about the complex history behind the city's main square, Maidan Nezalezhnosti. Prior to my departure, Sviata's friend Olga met me to give me a rich, in-depth tour of the Maidan and its surrounding neighborhood and she happily answered any lingering questions I had about Ukraine. I highly recommend Kyiv Friendly Tours because when I was with Sviata and Olga, I not only felt safe, but I also felt as if I were spending time with friends. For anyone concerned about the current pandemic, I would like to point out that with proper precautions Ukraine is very safe and that Kyiv Friendly Tours takes good care of their guests. In line with International and European safety standards, Sviata had hand sanitizer available in her car and both Sviata and Olga wore face masks during their tours - yet another reason why I highly recommend Kyiv Friendly Tours with enthusiasm!

The delightful and hugely knowledgable Slava, the owner of Kyiv Friendly Tours and our guide to the Mezhyhirya Residence, demonstrated, ‘it’s not what you know but who you know’. Slava organised a fascinating tour of the house, its grounds, the history and the politics surrounding ‘The Palace of Corruption’. If you want insights into what sparked the Maidan Revolution this is a good place to start........

Our guide Olga was simply amazing. So kind & helpful. Even when we ran a little late after getting lost! If you love football this is a wonderful tour to do. A little different & fab. Such an excellent lady. Who helped us to also see something a little extra @ the nearby boxing history museum also. And to add to the excellence she helped us get a local sim card to keep data costs down. We would highly, highly recommend. Thank you so much Olga and the team.

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 enjoyed this tour. It was stunning to see the place where such recent history was made. It was even more interesting hearing it from someone who it directly affected.
