Margo was a phenomenal tour guide! I cannot say enough good things about her tour. She asked me my interests and tailored the tour to it. Her knowledge of the city and its history is absolutely incredible. I had a splendid day with her. Honestly, I would not look anywhere else for a tour guide...she was just perfect.1 day ago
I didn't have much time to spend in Kiev and was looking to fit as much as I could see in the short space of time I had. I found the Quintessential Tour on Sputnik and this seemed to tick all the boxes. I got in touch with Sputnik and received an email from Margarita very quickly. I'd already seen The Pechersk Lavra Caves and wanted to see something a bit different than other tours offer. I arranged to meet Margarita in my hotel lobby to begin a tour that went to places I would never have found by myself. The three hours flew by with Margarita. Her knowledge of the city was first class and she was clearly passionate about her home town . The only disappointment was not being able to persuade the delightful Margarita to extend the tour a little longer. Don't miss this tour and definitely don't miss the opportunity to spend time with a superb tour guide, Margarita.

we had a aweseome tour with Andrey, he answerd us so many questions about kiev and ukraine. Thanks a lot for showing us this incredible place. I gave your number to olga, the host of our hostel if you like she can offer your tour in the hostel!
Julia knows everything about history of buildings and a lot of secrets about paths! It was very plaisant and we did not feel the fact that we spent 3h in the streets! I learnt a lot about the city i live in for 3 years.6 months ago
Irina is so lovely. I signed up for the "Stadium to Stadium" tour but in fact what Irina provided was a high energy, seven hour tour of beautiful Kiev. She is personable, intelligent, informed, sensitive, patient and *really* fit. Her energy is endless. Irina really sincerely cared whether I was enjoying the tour and (at the end) whether I was happy. When I said "It was perfect, exactly what I was hoping for" her joyful reaction was fully sincere. I want to return to Kiev, but when I do I have to be sure that Irina is free, because if she is not around, I will change the date! My day in Kiev was really special, and I have Irina to thank for this.10 months ago
Absolutely fantastic! Couldn't recommend this tour enough.
Andrey was in touch constantly right up until the tour which was reassuring.
We had slightly more people than he normally allows, but this wasn't a problem, and he accommodated us perfectly. The first rooftop was the least challenging and was a lovely introduction to rooftopping Kiev.
After this, a few of our group branched off and we went for a couple more challenging rooftops (although nothing too extreme!).
Andrey organised all of the travel between the roofs, which made things very slick and well organised. Andreys English was perfect, and it was a pleasure chatting to him on roofs and balconies while we were waiting for taxis.
In the end it was us that were too tired to go on, despite Andreys enthusiasm, and thirst to hit the next roofs! We had been on the roofs from 9pm 'til 3am.
The photos we all got from the tour were fantastic. Andrey is the nicest guy in the world and we've stayed in contact since. I cant wait to get back to Kiev just to hit the roofs again!11 months ago
