We took this fascinating tour, and from now on our walks in the city will be different. We will now look for roosters' heads, for small white men and small signs on the buildings. Bertolucci is a true artist, and his tour of the city centre was very different from a usual guided tour.
And even though we might still not appreciate all the graffiti in Kyiv, we will look upon it with other eyes than before.
We would recommend this tour both to visitors of Kyiv, and to locals who will get a new perspective of their city.
Bertolucci is not only an artist, he is also a very pleasant person, and the excellent interpreter made the tour enjoyable for us who don't speak Ukrainian or Russian very well.
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!
