We headed to Chernobyl for a 1 day tour with Green tour, which was fantastic. Chernobyl as you can imagine was an amazing experience and I highly recommend using Green tour to do so. We was picked up promptly outside of our hotel in Kiev city centre. We were greeted by Konstantin and Jane, both of which were very knowledge and both are a credit to your service. They went above and beyond what was expected of them and gave us information of other things to do around Kiev. Both of them made the trip that little bit extra special.

Amazing Tour!
Just to say a great thanks to all at Green Tour, my Dad and I did both the 3 hour city tour and the day trip to Chernobyl and Pripyat...... both were amazing experiences and very professionally done with great guides who were able to tell in great detail the history behind everything..... really great and would highly recommend.

Excellent day out
There were 11 people in our group in total with a driver and tour guide. Our guide spoke excellent English and was able to give us plenty of information about Chernobyl and Pripyat. The transport was very comfortable and the documentaries about the disaster before arrival was a great way if breaking the journey and learning more before arrival. The whole day felt well managed and at no point did we feel hurried along. Looking at some of the larger groups we were really pleased we booked with Green Ukraine. Whilst there are other companies with more Trip Advisor reviews our group really felt that this trip was value for money. Thank you again for the opportunity to visit a place which we need to learn from

Mezhyhirya Residence Tour
Konstantin gave us a great tour of Honka. He was fascinating to chat to, and made a great effort to offer an unbiased account of recent events in Ukraine. He was extremely knowledgable about the property and had lots of interesting stories about the rooms of the mansion. A fascinating insight into the world of oligarchs and extreme corruption. I would highly recommend both the trip to Honka, and Green Tours. Thank you Konstantin :-)

Mezhyhirya Residence Tour
We toured the Viktor Yanukovych residence, also known as "the house of corruption" and had our collective minds blown. Our guide/driver arrived early, was intelligent, informative, and spoke perfect English. He was also well versed in US politics, which helped give context to our tour and made everything very present.

If you had seem the house on the news, be prepared that it's all so much worse in real life.

There is no way that we could have explored the expansive grounds, health club, house, etc. without a guide. And, hard to imagine a guide who was a better fit for our interests.

Wonderful Solo Tours in Kiev
Recently did the Kiev City Tour, Food tour and Mezhyhirya tour with Konstantin. He was an excellent tour guide. Gave great insight into many different things of Kiev. Ate some wonderful food. I think I was the first person to do the food tour who doesn't drink alcohol, it puzzled Konstantin initially but everything was delicious. The Mezhyhirya tour was eye opening, some of the opulence was almost disgusting. Would definitely Konstantin and Green Tour Ukraine. wonderful customer service and great tours of a fascinating city.

2 excellent half-day tours
We did 2 separate private tours with Katerina of Green Tours - to the Yanukovych estate and Pecherska Lavra. Both went very well, worth the premium paid. Quick & easy booking via email. Payment via Paypal. Punctual pick-up and flexible drop-off. We'd highly recommend Katerina as guide. She was very professional, open, knowledgeable, and her English was the best of the several guides we had in Ukraine. She also went above & beyond - showing us how to take the metro and buying the tokens for us, helping us get a picnic lunch before dropping us off at Babi Yar park on the way back from Mezhyhirya, taking us to a nice restaurant after Pecherska Lavra and helping us order lunch there. And she reminded me to bring a scarf to cover my head at the monastery. While you could tour the Lavra on your own, it's highly advisable to engage a guide for Mezhyhirya as the tours of the (utterly astounding) mansion & spa etc are only in Ukrainian and opening hours can be erratic.
Passionate
The guide is passionate about her country and the capital Kyiv. Lovely afternoon spent discovering this wonderful city! Can only recommend.
