See the capital and its sights


Welcome to Kiev. This is the capital of Ukraine and it certainly has something to offer! Not only will you see Kiev, but you will also learn a lot about entire Ukraine and its rich history dating back over a thousand years. This is how old Kiev is, according to most historians, although some believe that is is over 1500 years old and that is what was celebrated in 1982!

During this unforgettable tour we will visit four historical neighborhoods of the capital: Podol, Upper Town, Center and Pechersk. We can walk up to 25 kilometers but we can always make it shorter or use some transportation. As your private tour guide, I can adjust the schedule, duration and activities to meet your needs. Please let me know of any special requests you have.
