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. Alex from Argotour was good at communicating and working with us to reorganize things at the last minute.

Svana was an excellent guide! It was 6 hours jam-packed with information about the city of Kyiv. It was great as an introduction to Kyiv. Thanks very much!

Interesting tour, the guide was very professional and informed and had an answer to every question. The cave monasteries are a must when visiting Kiev.
