Tour guide Margarita was extremely knowledgeable and an expert on the history, culture, and traditions of Kiev specifically, and Ukraine in general. Her English is impeccable and she conducted the tour at my pace (bad knee) and very professionally. I highly recommend her services to those who would like a quick and extensive overview of Kiev in a short period of time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gerry, Thank you for your feedback and nice words. Will be happy to welcome you and your family whenever you are in Ukraine again!

Margarita made our time in Kiev an extraordinarily rich and fulfilling experience. She is knowledgable, sensitive and accommodating to the needs of the people she is guiding, kind and generous and unflappable. Our group had a wide range in age and all four of us loved her. I warmly recommend Margarita to anyone thinking of a visit to Kiev. She knows the city well and made it come alive for us, even in a brief period of time.

Margarita is an amazing guide and wonderful person... funny and entertaining, completely down-to-earth, and easy to be around. She designed a fantastic tour that included touristy sites as well as the kind of little gems that you would never be able to discover by yourself or by using travel books, especially as they relate to art and culture. Her English is native-level perfect and she is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the city, Ukraine, and eastern Europe in general. Top choice, loved her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Wolf Gang for your feed back. I am also grateful to you. Totally enjoyed to share our city with you. Thank you for your interest and full involvement, interesting comments, points of view and unique personality. "It takes two to Tango" the city;)

The tour was very interesting. My guide (Margarita) has a really big knowledge about kiev's history, society, economy, and so on. She is very friendly and you feel the young blood in her veins. The segway-tour goes into the parks around the government and its really funny. Margarita was just in time at our meeting at my hotel. Thank you very much for this nice tour!

Margarita was excellent and I highly recommend her. Margarita took me on a fascinating, moving, and deeply knowledgeable tour of Kiev's Jewish history. She is well-educated, organized, friendly, and a pleasure to spend several hours with. Her English is also perfect. This was one of the best tours I've ever taken and anyone interested in Ukraine's Jewish history should hire her. The sites in Kiev need explanation and context and I would not have appreciated them wthout her insight. David Ebershoff, NYC

This was an excellent tour and Margarita was so informative. She is well versed in the history of the Jewish people in Kiev and Ukraine. Her English is impeccable. She arranged for us to go to two synagogues, meeting congregants and learning about current Jewish life. We also visited other sites. I made the arrangements at the last minute and it was very easy using this company's website. If you are Jewish and going to Kiev, this tour is a must.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judy, Thank you for your feedback. Was my pleasure to assist you with everything. Will eagerly help you with any necessary arrangements in Kiev and Ukraine any time.

Margarita was a superb guide who met us on time and took us to all the relevant spots about which she was most knowledgeable. Margarita was a delightful individual and we only wished we could have spent more time with her but alas there are just so many Jewish sites to see. We even took her afterwards, on a purely social basis, to an event at which I was speaking.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alan, Thank you for your feedback and I was really grateful to join your event. Was very interesting and enlightening as well. Enjoyed our company and touring greatly!

Margarita presented the best tour that I had ever had in my life. She continued to go into great detail not only of the sites that we were seeing, but also and in depth history, presenting both sides, in order to give better understanding of events that took place. Her English was impeccable and although I usually ask a lot of questions, she was so complete that I only had three minor ones. I learned a great deal and I recommend her highly as she was absolutely fantastic!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill, Thank you for the wonderful words. Kiev is such a great city and there are so many places and path to walk through that I will always be glad to share with you. Hope you will back some day and take your wonderful grandkids with!

Margarita was exceptionally knowledgable, spoke excellent English, and was very passionate about her subject. She was able to hire a driver at short notice and on a very hot day, it was a life saver. Margarita answered all of our questions while showing great respect for the tragic history of Jewish Kiev. She is an excellent tour guide and give her my highest recommendation!

Margarita helped our diverse group of adults and young people have a very enjoyable day at this interesting attraction. She is a very skilled and knowledgeable professional guide and provided us with a wealth of historical and cultural background about everything we saw. She was patient with our many questions and maintained her smile throughout a long tour on a warm, sunny summer day. She was a delightful guide and touring companion, and I would strongly recommend her to anyone visiting Kiev.

Margarita's General and Jewish Tour of Kiev was excellent. Her depth of subject knowledge and quality of presentation exceeded all our expectations. The tours were interesting, informative and educational. Our day was very well organized.
