Amazing local experience in Kiev
I decided to spend 4-5 days in Kiev from Sweden with my daughter and we did quite a few things including the usual sight-seeing and restaurants. Kiev is a nice city but what was very unexpected are how amazing the people are there. Snzezhana and her family were absolutely top notch in their hospitality and making us feel welcome for this quite unique experience which was a good takeaway. Simple home cooked Ukrainian food which my 9 year old daughter really enjoyed hopefully more than I did. ;-)

A great thing to do with kids or a couple or just alone ;-) Snzezhana speaks good English (and Ukrainian and Russian and some Spanish ;-) so never fear.

Her parents (her mum is the one teaching) are wonderful and looking forward to meeting them for egg painting class when I come back next!

Thank you very much!
My favourite part of Kiev!
By far my favourite thing I did in Kiev! Snzezhana and her mother were so incredibly kind and felt like being at home while away and travelling. Snzezhana picked my friend and myself up from our hostel and brought us to their apartment where we were greeted by her lovely parents. Her mom had made delicious home-made juice, I believe called kompot, which we sipped throughout our cooking class. We chatted and heard about life in Ukraine while learning to make delicious borscht and three different kinds of varenyky. I can't wait to show off my new cooking skills for my family at home! The best part was eating our creations...SO good! I can't recommend this trip enough! I promise you won't be disappointed!
Great tour
The tour toook us theough the center of kiev. We did not know what to expect but we got very good information about the coty/its people and the history. She also tool us to see some shops and pointed us to restaurants/bars.
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.
