A Recent Review of this guide

Oleksandr spent three days with me, giving me a tour of Lviv, driving me to Ternopil, showing me the sights there, and acting as translator all the while. He went WAY beyond my expectations, and I really came to think of him as a friend. Personable, energetic, cheerful, amazingly knowledgeable about art, culture and history, he's a star. Anybody interested in visiting western Ukraine would have their visit enhanced immeasurably with his service as guide. A+++.
