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.

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.

Fabulous personalised tour!
I got lucky and was the only person on this tour so I was able to personalise it a bit to what I was interested to know about. Katerina, the guide from Green Tours Ukraine, was wonderful - knowledgeable about Ukrainian history and a pleasure to spend hours wandering the city center with. She also provided me with a lot of advice for the rest of my time in Kiev, along with where to shop/buy gifts for people. Would highly recommend the company she works for to anyone looking for a good tour at a very reasonable price.

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!
Kyiv Hidden Gems Tour with a Local
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 am firmly suggest Yanna as a guide for her deep and factual knowledge and wish her all the best.

Wonderful and Comprehensive Tour
Chernobyl has fascinated me since the reactor exploded in 1986. One reason I came to Ukraine was to visit Chernobyl. The small group with whom I traveled entered the radiation exclusion zone and got our dosimeters and first visited the town of Chernobyl. Although some people live there, I didn't see a soul. The nuclear power plant is about 10 miles north near the town of Pripyat, where the workers lived. There were four operating reactors and two under construction that were abandoned after the explosion. Several of the reactors remained on line until the last one was decommissioned in 2000. Reactor 4 now has a huge sarcophagus covering the damaged reactor and the previous concrete dome placed to stop the radiation leak.

Pripyat is a spooky ghost town being reclaimed by the forest. It's hard to believe that it was a functioning city of 50,000. Residences, government buildings, a hotel, soccer stadium, amusement park, and a school are all deteriorating and being reclaimed by nature.

The tour itself was very well organized and allowed us to see a great many places in and around the plant and Pripyat. Lisa, our guide, expertly showed us all the fascinating things to see. Lunch was included in the tour at the power plant.

In summary, this was a great tour and provided everything I wanted to experience. I highly recommend it.

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.

Fascinating tour with an excellent guide, focus strongly on safety as well as sharing insights
This was a long day's tour, but a video on the way across to the site gave a good introduction and then our guide was very thorough in explaining what would happen and the important elements for keeping safe (which really are important - as radioactivity in allowed areas are very low, but the guide showed us areas off the beaten track where the geiger counter showed this was much higher).

From the gigantic hidden soviet transmitter in the forest to the deserted stadium and fairground in Pripyat, to the enormous cover for the still highly radioactive power station, it was all really fascinating.

We spent a lot of time researching the safety of the visit, and we personally felt sufficiently reassured about it, and the guide was extremely professional and gave highest priority to safety, which gave us great reassurance throughout the day.

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

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.

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!

Brilliant introduction to Kiev
Our guide, Katerina, was very personable and well-informed. I was travelling with a friend and we went on this tour as soon as we arrived in order to get a general flavour of the city and to help us get our bearings. We were not disappointed.
The tour was based in the centre of Kiev and covered history and more recent political events but Katerina responded to our requests to know more about shopping and restaurants.
She presented the information in an interesting and informative way.
Excellent value for money and recommended 100%
