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.
