The trip was very exhausting, but also extremely interesting. The young guide was a top-class proffessionalist - he spoke Ukrainian, English, Russian and Polish. He had a great knowledge, big respect. He took us also in some forbidden places. This trip was totally price-worthy. I can recommend it to everyone. It was also very safe, nobody from our 20-persons group was irradiated.

Excellent guide and tour company. Our guide Elena had great English and interpersonal skills and was very knowledgeable about the subject. No problems overall. Thank you!

A really nice tour with a minibus and a relatively small group of people (10) the bus only sits 16 so not a massive croud even if it would be full. The guide was amazing!

Все отлично, несчитая погоды, но тут уже без претензий. Гид Артем многое показал, рассказал, и с юмором и в то же время есть о чем задуматься.
