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.

An excellent experience
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.

Yanna is so sweet!
It was my third time in Kyiv and this time I brought friends with me to Ukraine. We enjoyed the walk very much and even though I had done also another walking tour from Like A Local it was awesome that the two routes had very little in common. Yanna showed us some beautiful buildings, little statues of Kyiv symbols, took us to the cafe with best eclairs and shared her personal feelings and opinions about Ukraine and was flexible to finish a bit earlier when we got hungry. Thank you, Yanna, for a lovely day!

Hidden Gems, the title of this tour fits !
Yanna speaks English fluently. She isn't pushy, knows how to handle in a perfect way with visitors to her city (what is generally called 'tourists').
After her tour I performed the walk mentioned in the Lonely Planet. Besides the starting point + about 300 metres + the end of her walk, nothing was common !
So I recommend to everyone visiting Kiev to book her walking tour !

MUST SEE in Kyiv - so much fun
Yanna is friendly and very knowledgeable. We walked around the central area for a good 4 hours, but she told these stories that really brought the city to life. After the tour you'll probably know a lot of interesting places that even the locals haven't heard of. This was a great way to spend my first day in Kyiv. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

True hidden gems
I would like to thank Yanna for her fascinating stories on the old and modern history of Kiev. She is enthusiastic, mobile, intelligent person.
I am firmly suggest Yanna as a guide for her deep and factual knowledge and wish her all the best.

We did the Hidden Gems Tour with Yanna and it was great. She showed us around the city, pointing out the not so obvious and provided us with a lot of information.

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.

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
Chernobyl & Pripyat Small-Group Day Trip from Kyiv
One of the best tours I have ever taken! Book it now!
Yanna was our guide on this tour and I'm not exaggerating when I say that it was one of the best tours that I have ever taken. Her enthusiasm, knowledge, interest, passion and friendly persona were fabulous.
This tour will suit anyone who wants to know some of the basic tourist information but who would also like to - as the title of the tour suggests - see a deeper side to Kiev that most tours do not cover.
Yanna gave us so much information and also suggested places to eat and shop.
Real value for money.
Thank you Yanna

Kyiv Hidden Gems Tour with a Local
Perfect!
I cannot say enough good things about Iryna and the Countryside tour. She asked a few questions about what I wanted to see and tailored a special itinerary - in one day we did everything I had hoped and more. I saw farm life, traditional villages, beautiful churches and parks, learned alot of history and had some terrific food. We laughed, danced in fields of yellow flowers, bought fresh milk from the farm and prayed in churches 1000 years old. If you want to 'get local' and see the real Ukraine, I would highly recommend Iryna as a guide.
Full-Day Ukrainian Countryside Tour from Kiev
What a nice experience!
A really good tour to start your visit in Kyiv. Yanna is very passionate about her heritage. She has a wide knowledge of Kyiv or Ukrainian history in general. During the tour you learn a lot about the little things you would probably overlook and get closer to the big context of the highly interesting backgrounds of this vibrant city! Yanna, due to her young age, has also showed us hip places and modern initiatives as street art! The tour is very fluent and yiu get a good overview of the city. Thank you again Yanna, we really enjoyed it!

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.

Away from the City
This tour was fabulous! Our guide was Iryna and her joie de vivre was so catching! We were able to experience sites outside of Kiev that we would never have known about. It was a delight being in the Ukrainian countryside, from a vast field of bright sunflowers, to an exquisite church, to a small village inn (with the best homemade lunch), and other cool things in between, we were transported to a simpler, peaceful lifestyle, and pace. Get away from the bustle of the city, and book this tour! It was charming!

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 :-)

Improve your knowledgein history with Viktoria
Viktoria immediately created a good athmosphere. Her tour allow you to discover (again) Ukrainian and European history, to understand how Kiev has been built, through the monuments (marvels) of this wonderful city.
Cathedrals, temple, properties, street art will : I never thought than Kiev was so rich.
I warmly recommend Viktoria to each traveler and keep her contact for my next trip in Kiev.

Victoria's love for Kiev makes this tour a real joy. She has as much excitement about showing you her city as you do seeing it for the first time. She is very accommodating and will ensure you get to see the unique, cultural, and historical side of Kiev. Victoria was amazing and I high recommend this tour! Дякую!

Great walking tour from knowledgable guide...
If you revel in architecture and want to see the Soviet era brought to our urban environment in the present...this is a really good tour.

My guide offered insight and facts which were interesting and insightful.

A bonus is that one gets to see so much of Kiev en route...
