First tour with Paul in Lviv. Paul was fantastic. This guy loves his town. A tour with passion and enthusiasm. A tour not only into the historic, but also the contemporary Lviv. Lots to laugh, lots to be amazed. Just the right amount of historic facts and interesting insights to the daily life in Lviv. This was really superb. Enjoyed every minute. Thanks Paul. Spricht sehr gut Deutsch.

The tour guide was very professional with very good knowledge of German, but unfortunately with such heat there was no air conditioning in the car. The tour description said that we should be brought back to the hotel but we drove to the hotel ourselves.
