Tour description

On this tour we will see Kyiv's main square - Maidan, which is packed with Kyiv's most iconic monuments such as the INDEPENDENCE COLUMN, the MONUMENT TO THE FOUNDERS OF KYIV, PECHERSKI GATE and more. We'll then walk to ST. MICHAEL'S CATHEDRAL known for its architecture and golden domes. Close to it stands ST.ANDREW'S CHURCH, which tops Kyiv's most adorable street, St Andrew's Descent. A few blocks away is the STATUE  of the chief of Ukrainian Cossacks’ Army BOHDAN KHMELNYTSKYI. The highlight of our tour is Ukraine's oldest standing church and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, ST SOPHIA CATHEDRAL. We'll then head to the invincible GOLDEN GATE, which has never been conquered by Kyiv's enemies. Next to the Gate sits the STATUE of the wisest ruler of Kyivan Rus', the GRAND PRINCE YAROSLAV OF KYIV.

Natalia is a fantastic tour guide. Her tour was so interesting and informative about the history of Kiev. But what we loved most was the anecdotal stories and local legends, which we doubt we would have learnt about had we tried to tour the city ourselves. This really made the tour for us! She also had great recommendations for restaurants and views around the city, which made the rest of our stay in Kiev even better!

The tour was great, but the guide made it amazing. Natalia is a wealth of information and is passionate about the history of this city. I've taken other tours in Kiev, but Natalia's tour provided so much more information. I definitely recommend a tour with Natalia.
