I was fortunate enough to have two personalised tours over two days with Slava, owner and tour guide with KFT. She is the best tour guide I have ever had. She is knowledgeable, friendly, speaks perfect english, and went way beyond what I would have expected by helping me with a little problem i was having in Kyiv. We visited Mezhugirya and the "Honka" house of ex president Yanukovych on first day, and second day we visited the Kiev Fortress and the state aviation museum. Both days were fantastic and very interesting and fun. I rate Slava and her company 10/10; She is the best.

Sviatoslava was an absolutely wondeful tour guide - she gave me just the right amount of information, went at a good pace and was very friendly and approachable. Her recommendations of places to eat were fantastic.
The tour itself covers many of the interesting sights in Kiev and is a perfect way to familiarise yourself with the city on your holiday. I would definitely recommend.

Kyiv Friendly tours organised 2 trips for us. Slava, our guide and owner of Kyiv Friendly tours was wonderful to deal with. My emails were answered quickly and she was very flexible with last minute changes. She is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The first tour was a trip to Mezhyhiya, Yanukovych's vast estate. The tour was fantastic. We spent over an hour inside the mansion. Slava knew when to give us information and when to step back and let us experience on our own. We also toured the grounds via a golf cart that had been arranged for us. Slava was very flexible and quickly agreed to drop our group off in city after the trip was finished. We were all impressed with this trip. The next day, Slava took 2 of our group on a tour of the Lavra. Our guests were once again charmed and impressed with Slava and her knowledge. I would highly recommend Kyiv Friendly tours and Slava to anyone who is visiting Kyiv.

Intellectual, Smart and Chilled-out..Regardless of the reason for your trip, you must spare sometime with Slava. She is an excellent guide with in-depth knowledge of the country. You will not be disappointed.

Slava is an awesome guide! She took us to the former Yanukovic estate, showed us around the house and walked with us around the estate. We're really happy we decided to take this tour with her and I'm looking forward to the bar tour next week.
