The Awfully Awesome Kyiv Walking Tour
Most tours will take you to the shiny, pretty parts of a city - but not this one! See the awful side of Kyiv on this unique walking tour past derelict buildings, abandoned factories, semi-demolished homes and old artificial caves. By the end of the tour you will realise that awful can be awesome!
My name is Alina. I am a local guide, photographer and blogger.
I have an itchy feet, so I constantly try to discover the world. What I love even more - is to show my city to travellers.
Kyiv is called the city of Golden Domes. But to me Kyiv is a city of prospectives and contrasts. I love to find out what is happening behind the most outstanding landmarks, and to show it to my guests.
That's why I am trying to get lost among beautiful or half-ruined backyards - I call it beautiful ruination.
I am constantly learning something new about my city: I watch documentaries, read books, study old and new maps and organize events for locals, expats and tourists.
I am in a place where I supposed to be. In awesome Kyiv - as awesome as you are!Read more

Do you want to see the real Ukraine, the real Kviv, Han this is the tour for you. We spent the day walking though the real Kviv most tourist never see. We spent time where the real Ukrainians live not just where the tour buses go. We saw the underbelly, we saw the beautiful graffiti, we saw amazing city views from high above the city.
The best part wasn’t even the tour itself, it was the guide. We talked we conversed, I learned about many different topics from an expert. We discussed politics, history, economics, jails, guns, art, how the youth live, how other lives. We talked about everything under the sun.
She was magical, we saw the rich and we saw the poor. Great tour but the guide was even better than the tour itself.
I cannot rate this high enough, 10 stars would barely scratch the surface. The guide is lovely, knowledgeable, fun, laid back and beautiful.
Towards the end of the tour she will show you a bunch of bars, restaurants and cafes and many other things that will turn your good trip into a great trip. 15 stars!!
Je kon doen en vragen wat je wou.

She is also a very pleasant, kind and intelligent girl, to the point that you forget that you are actually on a tour - she has that natural ability to make you feel welcome, and that you are in the company of a friend exploring the beautiful city of Kyiv.
Highly recommended to all!
