We give the opportunity to climb on the roofs of the Kiev city with decent views. Here we have houses with available roofs to visit in different parts of Kiev. The purpose of the tours is to make people feel the sense of height, to provide a layer of basic knowledge about Kiev, and also to try to eradicate the fear of heights.
Tour on the roof connected with the potential risk, it is desirable to wear comfortable shoes and simple clothes. Due to the blunting of fear, climb onto the roof while drinking is prohibited. It is advisable not to approach the edge of the roof (especially in windy weather), and not to touch the wires (sometimes there is current, has been checked for myself).
One should also keep in mind the roof we heading on can be suddenly closed before our arrival. It happens sometimes, it is even normal situation. Thus be ready to move onto another house with the open access to the roof. So plan your time in advance. The latter will help you understand what is like to be a roofer, and teach you to search new roofs with open access.
The main location of the available roofs: Kiev districts — Obolon, Vinogradar, Syrets, Lukiyanovka, the rest houses are situated in the other Kiev's housing areas.
About me: I took a great interest of climbing onto roofs almost 3 years ago, visited the 120 sites (and maybe more, don't remember.) As for me, the main criterion for choosing a roof isn't the greatest height, but the atmosphere and the spirit of the place, that emanates from it.
Please write to me, before booking the tour, and ask me about every detail!

Lukyanivska Metro Station, Entrance
Vi ger möjlighet att klättra på taken i Kiev med oändliga vyer. Här har vi hus med tillgängliga tak att besöka i olika delar av Kiev. Syftet med turerna är att få människor att känna höjd, ge ett skikt av grundläggande kunskaper om Kiev, och även att försöka bota rädsla för höjden.
Tour på taket är förknippade med de potentiella risker, det är önskvärt att ha bekväma skor och ta enkla kläder på sig. Pga. rädsla och avtrubbning är det förbjudet att vara alkoholpåverkad vid besök på tak. Det är inte heller tillrådligt att närma sig takkanten (särskilt när det blåser), och röra trådarna (ibland finns där ström, upplevde själv).
Man bör också hålla i minne att det taket vi riktar mot kan plötsligt stängas av tjänstemän före vår ankomst. Det händer ibland, men det är vanligt. Således är det bra att vara redo att flytta till ett annat ställe med tillgång till taket. Planera din tid i förväg. Denne kommer att hjälpa dig förstå vad är det att vara roofer, och lära dig att söka nya tak med tillträde.
Tillgängliga tak befinner sig i: Kiev distrikt — Obolon, Vinogradar, Syrets, Lukiyanovka, resten av husen är belägna i de andra av Kievs bostadsområden. På begäran erbjuder jag tak bara i centrala delarna
Om mig: Jag har klättrat på taken i 4 år, redan besökte 130 platser (och kanske mer, minns inte.) För mig, är det viktigaste att välja ett tak inte med den största höjden, utan med atmosfären och andan av platsen, som utgår från det.

Sightseeing from Kiev's roofs - customer reviews
October, 2 2016
Andrey was great guide and he loves his job - to show the great city of Kiev to foreigners! I asked him for extensive half day tour, he accommodated all my wishes, we walked more than 20 km all around the Kiev. I can really recommend his tour(s)!

The tour was great. I highly recommend it ! Andrey not only showed us a different way to see Kiev but told us some inside stories, explained things about the history of the city and answered all our questions (and we did have many). His English is great and this tour was definitely one of the main reasons why I came back home from Kiev with a smile : )

It was great seeing Kiev from another, higher vantage point. Andrei has a wealth of experience to share when you're up. I definitely learned a lot. Andrei is a gentleman in every regard, and speaks great English, even though he is very humble about it.

I had the tour, starting in English, but since Andrey also speaks Swedish he continued in Swedish which was very nice. We visited two tall buildings in different parts of Kyiv, and it was very interesting to reach these roofs.
The views were very nice, and we spent quite a lot of time on one of the roofs waiting for it to get dark. It was really nice to see how the view changed into something completely different when darkness fell. Buildings and items that you saw in daylight disappeared and others became visible.
It is clear that climbing roofs is a real passion for Andrey and he can really make you understand why. Besides talking about roofs and views we had a nice conversation about our respective countries, and I learnt a lot. This is far more interesting than taking a conventional guided tour!

I had a “Sightseeing from Kiev's roofs” individual trip. It was more than I was looking for! Andrey showed Kiev city from 4 different angles. It was amazing! He helped me to know Kiev from birds eye and historical perspective.
Trip took about 4 hours, off course it depends on travelers and on how many roofs they want to climb. :)
