Full description
Once you meet your guide at your hotel, you’ll start the journey to Uman located 213 kilometers south of Kiev. During this 3-hour drive, enjoy the picturesque landscape along the route as well as learn many interesting facts about Ukraine from your guide. When you arrive to the marvelous Sofiivka Park created in the beginning of the 19th-century, you’ll have a cheerful walking tour of its spacious territory. This park has an interesting story because it was as a gift from the Polish Count Stanislaw Potocki to his beloved wife Sofia. The designers of the park were inspired by the Greek poems the Iliad and the Odyssey and you will discover these motives in the decoration of the park. Strolling around the park, you will see the statues of Greek gods, cross the shaded alleys and discover beautiful lakes with fountains. Your guide will show you an enigmatic grotto, where you can make a wish that will definitely come true. During your free time in the park, take a boat trip on the underground river (optional, for an additional fee). After the tour in the park, you’ll start your return journey back to Kiev. You may have lunch in one of the restaurants near Uman (optional, own expense). Arrive back to Kiev in the evening and your driver will drop you off at your hotel or apartment.

Tour was great, Sergii was amazing guide, true cultural experience

Our tour guide was Sergii, he was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. Sofiievka Park in Uman is a beautiful place, surrounded by nature and mythology. Our guide at the park was also very informative and gave us a good tour and details of mythology. Two black swans were also in the park. Enjoyed very much this trip and would recommend to others looking for Ukrainian cultural experience. This company also does other tours as well. Sergio our guide was accommodating and hospitable with good conversation. Thanks again. Best.
