Igor was perfectly able to guide me through not just the contours of Yanukovich's ill-gotten palace, but the recent social history of Ukraine since its independence. I would greatly recommend the tour, while also recommending doing it closer to the middle to the day, unlike foolish me who booked late and was unable to do several things because they were closed. But getting into the mansion itself is more than enough to understand the warped, kleptocratic man who once ruled Ukraine.

It was very nice to visit Chernobyl with this company. Everything has been professionally prepared. The guide told us a lot about the place, showed several hot spots. The trip itself lasted from 8:00 to 20:00. The downside of the trip was the combination of two groups: ENG and RUS, so we lost our time listening to the same stories twice. Better to choose only the English version. Prepare that is not allowed to entry buildings, so urbex is off

We got to see the most beautiful sights in Kiev. Due to traffic problems, we were late arriving from the airport but, still, the tour guide Elena and the driver were quite efficient and we managed to see almost everything in a very short time.
