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.
Alex was simply amazing: knowledgeable, pleasant, cheerful. Went out if his way to make us happy and to understand our needs. We recommend him enthusiastically!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback, Benjamin! It was pleasure to meet you in our city and I hope you spent a marvelous weekend here. Good luck!

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!

I very much enjoyed being shown round Kiev by Alexander. He is friendly and very well-informed and took us to all the major sights in his half-day tour. Recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Richard, thanks a lot for this kind feedback and your interest about our country. Very appreciated!
Edward DavisUnited Kingdom
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
Alexander has been very friendly and an excellent guide, I have learned a lot about Kiev and Ukraine's history, and also about the local gastronomy! Many thanks Alexander!!! Philippe

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)

Denzil BourneUnited Kingdom
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!
Jason CooperUnited States
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.
Thomas H.United States
Alexander did a very good job of meeting all of our expectations and more. He covered all of the agenda sites as well as several additional ones and provided not only the official history but also his personal perspective. We would recommend folks visit this fascinating country during its time of challenge and change.
It was a pleasure to spend a day in Kiev with our guide Alexander. He knows the city well and is extremely knowledgeable about its history. He answered all of of our questions and provided us with a wealth of information about the city. We could have never seen so much and learned so much had we attempted to see it all on our own. We highly recommend Alexander to anyone who wants a comprehensive tour of Kiev. Thank you Alexander for introducing us to your city. Shari and Nelson
Went in an off-peak time of year but there was plenty to see and do. I had a lot of fun and Alex was able to provide a lot of interesting information. A great day out.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for visiting, Asher! Too bad you couldn't witness the first snowfall here but we both know that Australian summer is much pleasing occurrence!)
Edda PanzaniUnited States
Alex is amazing! He really went out of his way to ensure that I saw as much of Kiev as possible. I couldn't have enjoyed my one day off as much without his knowledge of the city and his great disposition.
Edward ChuUnited States
Thanks for showing me around at such a late time. The water/food/taxi ride you threw in was also much appreciated!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're welcome, Edward! Hope you've got the first-rate vacation in Europe. Come again to Kiev)
