Great day. We saw so much of Kiev. Alexander was very accommodating with my elderly parents. He really knew the history of Ukraine well and was able to answer all of our questions.

We had Alex as a private on 3 tours in august 2019 When we met Alex the first day, we talked about what we would like to see, and what we were interested in. And we were not disappointed. Alex is an incredibly nice person to be with. He speaks a language you can understand, he has humor and you can feel that he just wants to do everything to make you happy and satisfied. His knowledge of Kiev and Ukraine is fantastic, and this applies whether we talk about the past or the present. Pernille & Erik

This excursion was really cool. It was a rainy day, but alex found a solution... doing the tour with a golf cart... my goodness, it was so interesting.. in the golf cart , the narrator explained you each different parts of ukraine. Alex is a very attentive guy... we taught us , many things. He is very helpful too.. at the end of this place , you can buy some handcrafted souvenirs.. he helped us to bargain the price. You have to do this tour.. to learn the culture of ukraine. It was so perfect. Thx alex.

It was our last excursion in kyiv. This is a very big territory.. many things to see... if you like flowers.. it a really good place. We visited the old car collection, the zoo, many beautiful place in the gardens... And the main house... you have to pay for this ( alex included in the price tour) .. but nobody cant imagine the luxury lifestyle of their old president.Many floors, many room, it was so beautiful. Alex knew each parts of the territory .. so it was easier for us to visit the main attractions.

My son and I were very pleased and impressed with Alex's pleasant personality and his encyclopedic knowledge of Kiev and Ukraine's history and culture. We were in Kiev on the day of the new Ukrainian president's inauguration, but the chaotic traffic did not deter Alex's calm demeanor in the least. He was our favorite of many guides due to his enthusiastic personality, knowledge, and superb ability to communicate. Five out of five stars - without a doubt!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very pleased and glad you have visited our city! You're always welcome! It was very nice to meet you and I liked your company very much as you are clever and curios personalities. The traffic gets better and is not so chaotic already, as they are finishing to repair the roads) I wish you all the best!

Overall very good guide with excellent English skills, and knowledge of Kiev. We did a half day tour, and he paces it very quickly, so if you like to linger, suggest that you make that clear so itinerary can be adjusted. He was 30 minutes late for start of tour, and is the only reason, I did not give 5 stars.

Alexander was a delight to be with as our guide. We were very fortunate to take the tour on a Sunday and we thank Alexander for doing this on that day. Because it was a Sunday traffic was minimal and Alexander was able to get us to all of the highlights without any delay! He is very knowledgeable about his city and took us to an excellent restaurant that we would never have found on our own. He deserved our highest recommendation.

Alexander went above and beyond to make sure that my son and I had the perfect first day in Kiev. He was a big help logistically, arranging an airport pick-up for us and finding a solution for our luggage. The tour itself was superb. We saw a lot in the few hours we had together. Alexander impressed with his knowledge of the history and culture of Kiev and the Ukraine. Highly recommended way to immerse yourself quickly in the wonderful city of Kiev!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Duncan, Many thanks for your feedback and coming to our city! Very sorry for those inconveniences you had to overcome to witness the match of your team! We all were stuck to the screens and cheered for Liverpool) Anyway hope you had a great time here! And there's always a chance to win next year!

Alex is a dedicated and versatile tour guide. I started with an empty stomach, and he suggested I eat first. Along the way, I was interrupted by a long business call. He waited patiently and extended the tour timing to accommodate to my schedule. He also slotted in an extra place to visit because he knew I was very interested in local lifestyle. He is knowledgeable with the places of interest, and he will certainly surprise you with some "treasure" locations hidden from the unfamiliar! Thank you, Alex!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Chee Kum!) Your dedication, mood and curiosity about Ukriane are also much appreciated! As for the claim in my profile that's related to expressing humor which occasionally appear to be the truth) Thank you for coming and for that high rating you left here! Take care too!

Alexander was extremely helpful, arranging things thoughtfully to accommodate my current reduced mobility. I enjoyed his company very much: he was easy to talk to/with and I felt I cou;ld ask him anything. He was a little late to our initial meeting (not his fault) but took the trouble to phone reception at my hotel to let me know. Excellent communication by e-mail before the tour. Recommended without hesitation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Edward, Sorry for my late response! I'm very thankful for your kind feedback but more for your willpower and willingness to make this trip in our country despite your injury. It's really appreciated! Take care of yourself! Best regards, Alex

Alex was the perfect guide, and we will definitely meet him again for another tour when we return to Ukraine! Everything went so smoothly, and our day at beautiful Pirogovo was one of the highlights of our entire week in Ukraine. Alex was so friendly, generous and welcoming, and so proud and passionate about Ukraine and its culture. I definitely recommend taking a tour with Alex - we will return to Ukraine soon and will be taking another tour, for sure. Alex, thank you, thank you, thank you :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dan, thank you very much for visiting our Pirogovo skansen! It was amazing day indeed. And I'm also thankful for your gift! It's rather original and nice gesture, very tasty)

Alexander was an open-minded, flexible and accommodating guide. He was articulate and able to communicate on a variety of subjects (including politics, economics and culture) which were important to me. He helped me maximize the short time I had in Kiev in an enjoyable way. He was also able to advise regarding travel options in other parts of the country. I'm all out of superlatives and i would gladly recommend Alexander and his itineraries.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Denzil, I'm very thankful for this feedback! You're genuinely curious and inexhaustible traveler. Take care!

Alex was great! He spoke perfect English and knew a lot about the city and its history. He was very accommodating and made sure that we saw everything that we'd asked for in the beginning, including the Motherland monument which required a taxi ride that he easily arranged. Alex is like a local friend that you'd look up if you were in town and wanted to see the sites. I highly recommend him.
