Awesome with awesome sauce on top! Irene was wonderful- making the city come alive with heart-felt stories and age-old superstitions. We even stopped to get the Kyiv delicacy 'hot dog in a bun' before the lines got long. OK, we didn't get the big deal, but we tried it! We could have toured with Irene all week long. She has the right mix of story-telling and humor. What an enjoyable tour!
Nine of us enjoyed Elena's tour of the book market, the flea market and some shopping closer to downtown. Since non of us spoke Ukrainian or Russian, Elena's assistance in haggling the prices at the flea market were worth the tour fee alone. We would have been very intimidated to do any of this on our own. Thank you for sharing your love of a good deal!
What a cool 'tour'! More like hanging out with some chill Ukrainian friends out in the country. As a first time visitor to Kyiv (and not speaking any Ukrainian or Russian), I never would have been able to have such a great experience on my own. Knowing this tour was booked through Sputnik, I knew the safety and quality were there. And they were. Unexpected was the easy friendships with other Ukrainians and Russians. We laughed. We ate. We drank. We played foosball (OK, we LOST at foosball). We sat by the river. Ahhh. What a wonderful, memory-filled afternoon.
