        Outstanding in Every Way
        This was a great trip booked in advance with Green Tour Ukraine. Quite a long way out from our base in Kyiv but we’ll worth over 7 hours travelling. Located at the only surviving command silo and missile silo left in Ukraine, this place oozes Cold War. Vehicles and tanks abound including the transport and installation transports for the missiles themselves. A small museum records the history of missiles in Ukraine and then the main event, underground tunnels through to the command silo, very small lift 45m down til the 12 and 13 floors to the command room and the famous button and emergency accommodation. Back up through the massive ventilation plant room and then time to visit the outdoor exhibits. Really good day out and special thanks to Elena our guide who was a walking encyclopaedia of all things missiles, Soviet era and Ukraine.

        Dymtro was great! The places we went around the city and the conversation was wonderful! We liked it so much we booked him for the next day!!! The weather was cold and a bit rainy.

        Great tour
        Sergij was the perfect guide and the tour across the city and to the island was amazing! I recommend it highly to discover Kiev by bike.

        Private tour of Kiev
        Excellent organisation. Good communication with the tour company. Our guide Katerina was very informative. She gave us lots of tips for exploring the city ourselves after the organised tour. We found it good value for money. Standard of driving was really good and safe from. Uri.

        Avoid this company
        I booked the Small Group Tour of Lviv. We turned up at 9:55 for our 10:00am tour and no guide was there. After two phone calls to Green Tour they said that the guide was late and would come at 11am. To be fair they offered to refund the tour, but this didn’t get sorted until I contacted customer care. They offered to provide the tour for free. We turned up again at 11am where the guide asked my name and where I was from but ignored my friend. She actually said that the tour was only booked for 1 person and not 2 which was not true. She didn’t make very much interaction other than to say about 5 times that “I’ve took the money” and she was “providing this tour for free”. She then proceeded to rush us around to finish in 1 hour 40 mins. My friend was really upset that there wasn’t enough time to take photos as it was so rushed. He actually left at 12.30pm because he was unhappy not to have been even spoken to by the guide one single time - and there were only two of us on the tour. I would therefore NOT recommend this tour or Green Tours. The guides are unreliable and unprofessional and I suggest you book with another reputable company.

        English tour in Kiev
        Driver Yuriy and guide Konstantin were great. Very professional, Perfect English, very flexible for requests. We were just 2 on the tour, so ended up being on a private tour. My son and I enjoyed this tour a lot. Highly recommended!!!

        Don’t take the slow beach road
        For unknown reason, the driver decided to take a route which went through several beach towns with narrow roads and huge amounts of traffic on a Sat. It took over 3 hrs to reach the site and 2 hrs home so I had to shorten my tour by 1 hour. The guide was very informative and the site is worth a trip.

        Wonderful Experience
        The ladies were wonderful. Mother daughter team are very nice. Daughter speaks good English and translate for mom. It was fun getting in there and mixing up the dough and getting to cut up all the ingredients for the borscht. The Varenky are fun to make and had three different kinds. When I come back to Kyiv, this will be on my list. My wife and I had fun. It is a must if you want to taste the Real Ukrainian dishes.

        Great experience, and great to support locals
        My parents visited me in August 2019 while I was living in Ukraine. This experience was a highlight for them, and they still tell their friends stories, especially because of the “at home” feel!

        Exceeded Expectations
        Our private Ukrainian Cooking Class in Kiev exceeded expectations. Everything from the private kitchen in a local home, to the explanation of the ingredients, and the process of preparing the food contributed to the authentic experience of learning more about Ukrainian culture through its food. Our hosts were welcoming and kind, the food was delicious, and the entire experience was enjoyable despite our level of expertise with cooking. I would highly recommend this class to everyone, no matter your age or background, as an excellent way to immerse yourself in Ukrainian culture while enjoying good food and conversation.

        Excellent way to see a lovely city!
        We had a half day guided tour of Kiev and our guide Anna was brilliant. She took us everywhere in Kiev and her knowledge of the history of Kiev was second to none. Thanks to Anna our 3 hour tour didn’t feel like we’d been walking and talking for that long. It is probably the best way to see the city and I would recommend it to anyone.

        Very much worthwhile cooking class to see the value of home cooking
        Truly worthwhile excursion, compactly arranged in three hours including the transportation. Also very flexible in scheduling. The class was hands-on for a small group (they hold a class for solo, too). Food is a full meal equivalent so do not eat before the class I now feel to have understood why Borsch has been loved by so many people for a long time. Home made one is distinctively delicious.

      Ich kann diesen Ausflug nur wärmstens empfehlen. Hier hat einfach alles geklappt von der Buchung der Tour bis zur Rückkehr ins Hotel. Gebucht haben wir vor Abflug aus Österreich heraus übers Internet.
      Wir sind pünktlich vom Hotel abgeholt worden und sowohl unser Guide als auch unser Fahrer waren sehr freundlich, zuvorkommend und kompetent. Unser Guide hat geduldig unsere vielfältigen Fragen beantwortet und hat uns sehr viel Wissenswertes über unsere Ausflugsziele und die Ukraine erzählt.
      Wir haben uns für diese Tour entschlossen, da wir neben Lemberg noch eine zweite ukrainische Stadt besuchen wollten und das Kloster klang ebenfalls sehr interessant. Von beidem wurden wir nicht enttäuscht.
      Zhovkva ist nett. Im Schloss ist noch etliches an Restaurierungsarbeit zu leisten, aber genau dieser Kontrast zwischen dem kleinen, bereits restaurierten Teil und der großen restlichen Anlage hat seinen ganz eigenen Reiz. Der Aufstieg auf den Rathausturm war ebenfalls nichts alltägliches, denn er führt durch ein kleines, aber liebevoll eingerichtetes Museum direkt den Stiegenaufgang entlang! Das Basilius Kloster ist einfach prachtvoll.
      Ebenso prachtvoll und wunderschön gelegen ist das Kloster Krechiv. So wunderbar der Ausflug bis dorthin war, das für uns absolute Highlight war die kurze Wanderung durch den Wald zum Höhlenkloster. Dieser Weg ist schon alleine für sich einfach beeindruckend, führt an einem wunderbaren Brunnen vorbei und und lohnt jede Mühe. Man kann hier wenig weit von Lemberg entfernt Natur genießen. Gutes, stabiles Schuhwerk ist hier erforderlich! Der krönende Abschluss war die St. Trinity Holzkirche.
      Wir haben die Tour übrigens auf Deutsch gebucht und unser Guide hat super Deutsch gesprochen! Die Tour ist in einer Minigruppe (2 Personen) nicht ganz günstig, vermutlich auch mitbedingt durch die Buchung in deutscher Sprache, aber ihren Preis unserer Meinung nach auf jeden Fall wert.
