Absolutely brilliant! Zoryana, our guide, organised a comfortable car and a very competent driver for the challenging country roads. She was friendly and informative about the history of the area, past and present. Armed with what we knew she was able to make contacts with the local people. Her translation skills were marvellous enabling fluld communications between everyone we met. We visited the library, museum, a 1900's family home & were welcomed by paternal cousins & in Lviv we met another cousin.

What a lovely 3 hours walking tour round the heart of beautiful Lviv! We were admiring the astonishing architecture while absorbing interesting facts and stories about the city of Lviv which our knowledgeable guide Zoryana delivered In English. Excellent guide, speaks excellent English. What else would you ask for? Only cold beer or aromatic coffee perhaps. Enjoy it too.

We LOVED Zoryana!! Her English & Russian was perfect. Very knowledgeable & interesting. She was very sweet & took us all over the area. Including my father in laws old home. We had lunch at the best Ukrainian restaurant we have been. If she recommends something, listen to her!! She knows!!! Zoryana was a pure joy. My husband & I are from USA & travel a lot.

The tour in a comfortable SUV took us through peaceful countryside to three dilapidated castle palaces of seventeen century Polish nobility, mainly related to the then powerful Polish king Jan Sobieski. The grand estates, now located in independent Ukraine, are in a desperate need of renovation, but still impress with majestic hilltop locations and breathtaking views of the surrounding areas. The tour is great for history buffs, especially those with some relevant background interest.

Zoryana is a friendly guide with a very personable approach toward her guests. She speaks fluent English and most importantly has deep knowledge of history, architecture and current events related to her city and country. The relaxing walking tour took us through important churches and monuments with several stops at souvenir shops, markets and photo ops. Wear comfortable shoes as most streets are paved with cobblestones and do not hesitate to ask questions relevant to your background and expecta
Zoryana is a kind and wonderful guide. She helped us try to find family and was very patient and considerate! We were very lucky to find Zoryana and we are so grateful to her. We enjoyed her company immensely and would recommend her to anyone coming to Ukraine! You will be sure to have a great tour,Thankyou Zoryana from Rhonda and Vlad.
We had a lovely day walking and driving around Lviv with Zoryana! She is such a lovely person and was happy to do this day at our pace,when we needed to rest we did so we managed the day really well! Zoryana gave us a lot of history and information and she was very intuitive about what we wanted from the day.She answered all of our questions. We were very happy and look forward to spending another day with her tomorrow. We would definitely recommend Zoryana as a guide in Ukraine! Rhonda and Vlad.

Zoryana is absolutely wonderful as a guide and a person. She designs the tours according to her clients' interests and needs and is extremely accommodating. She is gracious, smart, and very informative. For me she acted as a professional translator as well as a guide, and did a fantastic job. I recommend her so highly - she will make your travels in Ukraine memorable!
I gave Zoryana '5 stars' as she was very knowledgeable about the city of Lviv and helped me better understand the region that my grandparents came from. She was also very accommodating as to what I wanted to see.
Zoryana is a very competent guide who showed us Lviv with great knowledge of its history and contemporary situation. Zoryana also presented and discussed with us actual problems and attitudes in Ukraine. This she did with high personal integrity and honesty. The tour made our visit to Lviv really memorable and we can give Zoryana our best recomendations

Zoryana was a superb guide. She asked all the right questions and got access to all the right people that brought my family history to life. She also has great knowledge of the region's history and culture. She translated everything into beautiful English, and I recommend her to everyone who wants to learn more about L'viv and the surrounding region.

Zoryana gave my wife and I an informative and interesting walking tour of the beautiful city of L'viv in September 2015. Zoryana is a very sweet and charming guide. She taught us about the history of L'viv, its multi-cultural inhabitants over the years, and gave us some interesting background about our own Ukrainian heritage. Americans should not be hesitant about visiting L'viv! It is an authentic European city with great character and lots to see. G.S., Hoboken, NJ, USA
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback. I really appreciate your comments and hope to see you again in L'viv.

Zoryana gave a fantastic tour and was very flexible with the arrangements. As an American, I felt uncomfortable driving a rental car from Poland into Ukraine. Zoryana and a driver picked me up this morning at 8:30, drove me to Lviv, and after touring for 3 1/2 hours, the driver returned me to Zamosc, Poland. It was a long and tough day for me. Imagine how difficult it was for the driver. It was a fantastic tour. The weather wasn't great, but we didn't really get rained on very much. I learned a lot.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jerry, thanks for a nice company. I really enjoyed it. I wish you more travels in future and good luck. With best wishes from Lviv, Zoryana

Zoryana was a pleasure! She was so helpful and has a ton of knowledge about Rynock Square. Frankly I was amazed at just how much she knew about this area and I'm so glad we opted to take the tour. I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in the history of this stunning area of Lviv.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Christine, thank you very much for taking your time and providing feedback of the tour. It was a pleasure to meet you and guide you through the city. I know this trip was very special for your family so I did my best to make you feel at home and welcomed! Hope to see you again in this part of the world. Sending the best wishes to your family as well! Regards, Zoryana

Zoryana brought a perfect balance of historical story telling, eating and walking. She really brought the city alive! We loved the farmers' market and would have been intimidated to sample products on our own. We got more out of Lviv thanks to Zoryana!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're very much welcome! I really enjoyed your company!
