Tour: #676927, Family roots private tour to Busk and around, Lviv, Ukraine    view tour
Date: Oct 6/19

The tour much exceeded my expectations (and was arranged at short notice). Mykhailo is an excellent tour guide; very knowledgeable, pleasant, and great at asking useful questions. We visited three villages and asked people there. We unexpectedly met some relatives who invited us to share an impromptu meal (it was more like a feast really which couldn't have been easy) which was a real treat. The whole trip was very informative. I can recommend Mykhailo as tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for such good feedback! It was very interesting and I was glad to help you! Wish you all the best! Best regards Mykhailo!

Mykhailo provided a wonderful and energetic tour of Lviv. He is an excellent English speaker and provided a great amount of detail about everywhere we went. He was able to answer all of my questions whether it was about history, religion, or present day politics. I really appreciated that he focused the tour on the things I was interested in--loved the architecture of the city and the pharmacy tour was very interesting! I highly recommend Mykhailo for your tour of Lviv!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such good feedback! It was a pleasure to meet you here! Wish you all the best!

It was a great tour, especially because of the tour guide Mykhailo who is very well informed. You can see that he likes to talk and does his best to tell you the most interesting things, not only about the beer but Lviv itself. Thank you for a great tour Mykhailo!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We had an excellent conversation. Thank you for such a good feedback!

Mykhailo gave my an 8 hour long personalized tour of Lviv, covering the most interesting parts of the city off the beaten track. His knowledge of Lviv's history and architecture is impressive, and he knows how to round off this knowledge with interesting stories about various characters and events from Lviv's past. I particularly recommend his tours to visitors interested in the rich and diverse history of the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Дуже дякую за гарний відгук! Мені було приємно поспілкуватися з вами і провести тур! Буду чекати вашого повернення до Львова!

Tour: Tour to Viktoriv, Lviv, Ukraine
Date: Jul 28/19

Mykhailo was helpful, kind and went way above the call of duty. Not only did we find her grave, we found family there. Rather than give up when we found the door of the church locked, Mykhailo went to the rectory and spoke with the priest on my behalf. The priest made a phone call and within an hour, we were at a kitchen table enjoying the company (both laughter, and serious emotion) of family. And, of course, what followed was a trip to the cemetery. I highly recommend Mykhailo as a tour guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! It was pleasure to help you!

Date: Jul 24/19

Mykhailo was an excellent guide. I had only a short time (24 hours) to visit Lviv and I also wanted to hike to the highest point in Ukraine - Mt Hoverla. Mykhailo coordinated a very efficient itinerary. He collected me promptly at the airport, and with a driver we continued to the Carpathian Mountains and overnighted. Early morning I hiked to the summit. We enjoyed an excellent local lunch, then back to Lviv for a city tour. On time, he deposited me for my flight. Successful trip ! thank Mykhailo !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for such a good feedback! I am very happy to meet you and make tour for you. We had a great and very interesting conversation. Hope see you again in Lviv!

The day tour of Lviv provided by Mykhailo was one of the best we've ever experienced. With his doctorate in geography and wide-ranging interests in history, art, culture and politics, he answered our questions easily and with both insight and passion. He personalized our tour based on our interests and limited ability for walking great distances. We highly recommend this professional, personable guide for a superb introduction to and overview of this wonderful city! Thanks, Mykhailo, for a terrific day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such good feedback! It was very good day with the very good conversation with you and Gary. It was pleasure to work with you ! Wish you all the best!

Date: Jun 13/19

Mykhailo gave a wonderful tour highlighting all of the more important locations in the Lychakiv Cemetery. He was also very knowledgeable regarding all of the historical aspects of the cemetery. We enjoyed taking the public transportation to the cemetery so that we could utilize what we learned later in our trip. We highly recommend Mykhakilo as a tour guide, and in particular, we highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback! It's very important to me! We had very good conversation!

Tour: #448707, Lviv During WWII Private Walking Tour, Lviv, Ukraine    view tour
Date: Jun 10/19

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Героям слава! Heroyam slava! Thank you for such beautiful feedback! It's very important to all of us to have such good conversation!

Mykhailo and our diver were absolutely amazing. They took us to a remote village that our family immigrated from and spent the whole day with us translating each and every lovely word our family said. We were not even sure we would find anyone still left in the village but we found everyone. We truly want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts. I highly recommend traveling with Mykhailo he is the best in Lviv.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! It was great tour with you and your family. Hope see you again :)

Professor Mykhailo went above and beyond to provide a tour that was fascinating and very educational. I made several special requests and he exceeded all of my expectations with his in depth knowledge and ability to educate and entertain (I was traveling with two 17 year old boys and they were captivated for 5 hours). He spent far more time than we had anticipated and having as a professor was of much higher caliber than I have ever had as a guide. We feel extremely fortunate and grateful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a fantastic feedback! I was glad to help you. Here is my email klapchuk.m@gmail.com if you can send a photo here, please. Also, I will send you a link to the video we tried to view and a few old photos. As for helping you in the summer, I will be interested in this question and will write to you about the result. I think that in something I will help you. Best regards, Mykhailo.

we did the World War II History Tour in Lviv with Mikhaylo and it was terrific. 5 out of 5 stars for sure. He was fun, friendly, punctual, and kept us safe and entertained the entire time. Despite the difficult subject manner, we still really enjoyed it and had some laughs as well. Highly recommend him for anything he offers—great guy! His English was excellent as well. Alex

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really liked to provide this tour for you. Thank you for good rating. See you again :)

Not only does Mykhailo knows his beer, he's also very knowledgeable about the brewery history of Lviv! He took me around old establishments, mixing up with new and upcoming places, had beer tasting in all the places we visited and they were all delicious! Had a wonderful time tasting and learning about the beer / brewery history of Lviv with Mykhailo, absolutely recommend this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was very happy about having beer tour with you. Thank you for good rating.

Took Mykhailo's WWII tour as wanted to get a glimpse of Lviv during those challenging time. Mykhailo is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the history of this wondrous city; he walked me to various points of interest, showed me archival photos of that time, and annotated the various events that had transpired. I highly recommend this tour to those who wish to learn about Lviv's past during WWII, I appreciate Lviv so much more with the history that I've learned from this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I liked to provide this tour for you very much. Thank you for good rating.
