Greetings! My husband and me visited Kyiv on Jan 27, 2022. We had a tour with Alex. Though the excursion should have been dedicated to the ancient Kyiv history, Alex shared much more. It was greeping experience with no dull dates and widely-known facts from the school history books. Thank you, Alex, for your witty sence of humour, ingenious ideas and fascinating opinion shared with us during our meeting.

We had a tour with Alex on Jan 3 and it was amazing! I booked it primarily for my bf who is a foreigner but I ended up learning a lot myself even though I was born and raised in Ukraine. Not only did Alex possess great knowledge of Ukrainian history, he also knows many little interesting details about Kyiv and its ancient and Soviet past. Also, his sense of humor is amazing and will make you enjoy the tour even if the weather isn't the best :D My bf (who initially didn't expect much from a walking tour btw) absolutely liked it and insisted on keeping the pamphlet Alex gave us as he's determined to do more tours with him next time we are in Kyiv. Thank you, Alex!
