A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour with Mykhailo was informative and an important way to start our excursion in Ukraine. While the subject matter of WWII history is difficult, Mykhailo did a nice job of blending historical fact with present day implications and promise for the future of Ukraine. Walking under the bridge leading to the former Jewish ghetto was powerful. Stepping inside of Lviv University and learning about past and present day scholars was also an important aspect of our tour. Lviv is a must see! Slava Ukrayini!
