A driver picked us up at our apartment and took us to Тетяна's apartment. There she told us the history of the pysanka egg painting, based on covering the egg with wax and then immersing it on different colorants. She showed us how to do it and then we could choose a pattern that the we would like to reproduce by ourselves. We had so much fun getting to paint the eggs in that old Ukrainian technique and we were proud of the result. This workshop was one of the highlights of our trip to Kiev and we recommend it to everyone trying to experience a real Ukrainian tradition.

Fun artistic adventure.
My daughter found this online and we decided to try it since it was Easter Week during our vacation to Kiev. Very skeptical when arriving at the apartment. After two minutes we were very comfortable and learned a bit of this amazing art. Very informative and interactive. Kids and adults loved it. The drivers were also amazing.

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

Absolutely fantastic
We spent the day with Konstantinis. He was so informative and helpful, answering any questions we had throughout the day. His English was excellent. He really made the day a memorable one. He went out his way for every request we had.

The tour itself isn't cheap but it's good value as it lasted the whole day. It's a very eerie and incredible experience from start to finish and there was a lot more to it than I expected.

Interesting day
I visited Chernobyl later July. I booked this tour based on the reviews. The guide was very professional, sharing all safety instructions at the beginning and remind them as needed. I was not informed that I need to wear clothe fully covering your legs / arms, so they provided me a solution at no cost. Believe the low point was the food; however, it is Chernobyl ... so you cannot expect a fancy restaurant. Overall, unique experience. I also used this company for transportation from / to the airport, no issues, they arrive on time.
