Full description
Your private tour to the Mezhyhirya Residence will start with a hotel pick-up. After meeting your guide, you will drive to the Novi Petrivtsi village where the residence is located. Once you arrive in Mezhyhirya, you will be impressed with its splendor. There, you’ll explore its spacious and lavish grounds which includes a “VIP territory” with perfectly cut trees, a tennis court, non-freezing lake and a farm with ostriches, peacocks, pheasants and other rare birds and animals. Your expert guide will also tell you many intriguing facts about the ex-president’s rule. The highlight of the tour is V. Yanukovych's mansion called “Honka” and a health center (optional visit for an additional fee). The interior of Honka creates a dual impression when you see all the excessive opulence of everything around you - golden chandeliers and mosaic floors, luxurious furniture and exotic decoration.  In addition to the main tour of the grounds, you may also visit a training center for elite dog breeds, a bath complex and the Museum of Retro Cars (optional for an additional fee). After this informative tour, your driver will drop you off at your hotel.

Guide with basic knowledge

The tour started with them telling us we might not actually get into Tonka even after calling ahead and asking. We eventually did after a bit of arguing. While waiting to get into Tonka, we walked around the ground and the guide couldn't answer any of our questions and was looking as if its the first time she saw anything. the guide would not translate most of the things that the Ukrainian guide was saying, I had my wife (who speaks Ukrainian) step in multiple times to either correct or add to the guide's missing content. This is the second awful tour I had with the same operator
