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.
Our guide, Constantin, picked us up from the hotel as arranged and we were driven to the Museum of the Patriotic War. His knowledge of the subject was excellent and he was able to put it across in an interesting way. We then walked to the monastery where again Constantin was able to give us great background information on the site and its history. Finally we finished with a visit to the Museum of Miniatures which was an enjoyable addition to the day.
Our tour guide, Mykola, was very knowledgeable and engaging. His descriptions of history and the places that we visited took us back in history and helped us to better understand how and why events took place and who the most important people in hisoty were at that time.
A must for people interested in history. Interesting relic from the Cold War! Little tourists. Everything is real, not a “Disney”.
great tour guide. flexible and knowledgeable and friendly. tour itself hits vital areas. important experience.
