Very delightful & informative had a great time!

I was stuck in my hotel for 2 days when at the last minute a decided to check the Internet for a guide to see St. Sofia Church in Kiev the same day. A few minutes later I got a call from Sofia who said she would try to find me a guide, a few minutes after that i got a call from Anastasia and i was off to meet her. She was fantastic, friendly & very knowledgeable about Kiev history. Get your Guide is GREAT!
