“Exceptional tour guide in Kiev”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Oksana is a magnificent tour guide. She is unfailingly professional, hard working, and has met our varied needs without fail. She is passionate about Kiev, proud of the city, and truly enjoys showing off the many impressive monuments in town. She is a great resource for local affairs and is willing to use her extensive networks of contacts to help arrange transportation. Oksana is also understanding and flexible when necessary. Her English is fluent and she is very willing to interpret interactions between her clients and Ukrainians who do not speak English. Her prices are reasonable and the money spent on procuring her expertise as a guide is certainly money well spent!

“Oksana is a jewel”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We so enjoyed our planned day with Oksana that we asked her to spend the next day with us right up until boarding our plane. Creative, professional, and very well suited to guiding!

“Knowledgeable and personable guide.”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Oksana met me at my hotel, at the scheduled time, and we headed out for a full day of sightseeing, and exploration, geared towards my love for amateur photography. She'll drive you in her car, from place to place, so that you can get the most out of the different areas of the city. I'll try to post pictures when I have time (Oksana, I haven't forgotten to send you the pictures!).

The day of my tour, was a beautiful day of weather in Kiev. We visited several of the cathedrals, the Monastery, the Chimera House, Independance Square, food market, and many more places. She did a very good job of explaining the historic, and cultural, aspects of each site. The best part of the tour for me, was that we were able to discuss many topics of daily life in Kiev, or the Ukraine in general, and she was always willing to share her thoughts and ideas.

We did so many things, and got so caught up in our discussions, that we went the whole day without eating (the only client that she's had, where we didn't stop to eat!)! This wasn't really the plan, but the location we were going to eat at, wasn't serving food while we were there. Also, since you are driving from place to place, and traveling all around the city, she will point out the areas where bathrooms are located.

Don't hesitate to schedule your tour with Oksana. I'm sure you'll be as pleased as I was.

“Exceptional Tour!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

My wife and I used this tour service on two different days during our recent trip to Kiev. I can not say enough good things about Oksana and her professionalism. The first tour was a full day city tour and it was exceptional. We were shown the obvious touristic sites and several places off the beaten path. The second trip was a day trip outside the city about 100km. We toured some very beautiful scenic locations as well as historical WWII sites. Additionally we visited with a local family and had a nice meal. When not touring with Oksana, she was also sending emails during our stay with great suggestions and dining recommendation. She arranged for opera tickets and many other personal touches. We have toured extensively and often used guides. Oksana is by far one of the best. If you want to really experience Kiev/Ukraine, with her tours you will not be disappointed. An overall outstanding tour and for a very reasonable price!
