Just a few words from them.

Myself, my girlfriend and my mother than the exquisite pleasure of having Sviata take us on a Friendly Tour of Kiev to the Museum of Corruption aka former president Yanukovych’s house / presidential grounds. The trip is extensive, interesting and well planned. Sviata has great knowledge of the relevant history and is both a personal observer, and a neutral party at the same time. She took both questions but also served to ensure that what you saw also fit well with what you heard. I would certainly recommend anyone visiting Kiev to take a tour with Kiev Friendly tours.

We were Swedish delegation with 18 people spending a week in Kiev 15-19 FEB with a perfect end of the week, a tour with Slava. What a success! The combination of the lovely Kiev and her energy and passion for showing us the best of Kiev. Everyone fell in love with the beautiful city. We can deeply recommend Slava, her competence and passion for Kiev will give you the best way to experience Ukraine and Kiev. Thanks Slava and thanks Kiev for welcoming us, see you soon again.

First of all, she came just in time for appointment. It’s very important to me. Furthermore, she was very polite, well dressed, sophisticated and a good listener. The reason why she visited many countries, she was very experienced about being an intelligent company to introduce Kiev. She has also fluent english language skills. I strongly recommend all the people who wants to visit Kiev and looks for a well educated company. Thank you.

We were looking for tour to Mezhyhirya with option to visit Honka, private residence of former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych. After checking numerous websites and calls contacted Kyiv friendly Tours. Slava, tour owner and a guide made an extra effort to accommodate our group on a short notice. She picked us up from our place, arrived on time in nice non- smoking car and drove us to Mezhyhirya. Tour took 4 hours. Because of Slava’s special access we were able to see inside of astonishing Honka house.Slava’s broad knowledge of history and recent events as well, her excellent English and genuine friendliness made this day very special.

We booked Kyiv Friendly Tours based on a recommendation — and we were not disappointed. We took two tours with Slava (owner/operator) — the Mezhyhirya and Lavra Tour. Both were wonderful experiences. Slava is a delightful tour guide, with lots of information and she is able to give you a level of comfort during your tour that you are seeing the important things, and knows how to navigate both the location and the system. Mezhyhirya is the private residence of former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych — it is the epitome of opulence and decadence if not good taste and restraint. While we visited the compound, there were countless other visitors BUT our group was one of only 2 small groups that were allowed access inside the house and spa.

I was fortunate enough to have two personalised tours over two days with Slava, owner and tour guide with KFT. She is the best tour guide I have ever had. She is knowledgeable, friendly, speaks perfect english, and went way beyond what I would have expected by helping me with a little problem i was having in Kyiv. We visited Mezhugirya and the «Honka» house of ex president Yanukovych on first day, and second day we visited the Kiev Fortress and the state aviation museum. Both days were fantastic and very interesting and fun. I rate Slava and her company 10/10; She is the best.

Kyiv Friendly tours organised 2 trips for us. Slava, our guide and owner of Kyiv Friendly tours was wonderful to deal with. My emails were answered quickly and she was very flexible with last minute changes. She is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The first tour was a trip to Mezhyhiya, Yanukovych’s vast estate. The tour was fantastic. We spent over an hour inside the mansion. Slava knew when to give us information and when to step back and let us experience on our own. We also toured the grounds via a golf cart that had been arranged for us. Slava was very flexible and quickly agreed to drop our group off in city after the trip was finished. We were all impressed with this trip. The next day, Slava took 2 of our group on a tour of the Lavra. Our guests were once again charmed and impressed with Slava and her knowledge. I would highly recommend Kyiv Friendly tours and Slava to anyone who is visiting Kyiv.

I occasionally spend time in Kiev for work and always seek help and entertainment advice from Kiev friendly tour guides. My last adventure was a trip to Yanukovych’s Private Mansion outside the city and I can’t imagine doing it without hiring a friendly and informative local guide. I have greatly enjoyed all the tours I have been on and appreciate the ability to customize the experience to fit my desires. The owner Slava is a delightful person to spend the afternoon with and I hope her business continues to thrive and grow. Kiev has a bright future with young, smart, entrepreneurs like her living there. I look forward to my next trip to Kiev. I know that with Slava’s help I will find something interesting to do, somewhere delicious to eat, and spend a wonderful afternoon with a friendly local guide. I will definitely use Kiev Friendly tours again!
