A good tour for anyone who wants a quick overview of the city and wants to learn about the uprisings on Maidan Square. In the narrower sense, the tour leads up and down the main street at Maidanplatz. A lot of information and tips for the further vacation were given. A good introduction to the city for me

Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

Thank you for my guide and driver! She gave me a lot of information not on the guidebook. I was able to know the history, culture and current of Ukraine. Thanks to her I could buy Ukrainian designer clothes and I could eat my favorite salmon.

Nataliya is a local guide for German who did a great custom tour for me and is a very pleasant person. She was very flexible and adapted everything to suit the weather.
