Margo is very knowledgeable, with perfect English. While Babi Yar is easy to get to, the area is spread out with no museum or explanations. She really helped me understand its horrible history. The rest of the tour was of Jewish Kyiv. We went into one synagogue and drove by memorials to Golda Meier and Shalom Aleichem. We also visited a courtyard, bland now, where Margo explained how it was the community center a century ago. Memorable and highly recommended!

Margarita was very knowledgeable of everything we walked by. She was detailed in her explanations and told many stories to connect me with what I was seeing. The pace was good, and I enjoyed the time with her. Highly recommended!

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 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!
