We had an amazing trip to Kyiv thanks to Wonders & Holidays team. This place is not to be missed- it’s magical we will be back! We had such a great driver Vladimir who knew exactly how best to navigate around Kiev with fantastic local knowledge. And Daria our guide was exceptional speaking multiple languages and making our trip interesting and fun. And big thanks to Nick who put this tailored made programme for us the way we wanted and accommodated us on every wish we made to be fit for a little child. We have amazing memories of our 3 days in Kiev! Thank you!

We did the beer tour in Kiev. Five beers in five different bars for two of us and our guide. That was a great chance to hang out with some locals, get to know the history and city a bit more, all while enjoying some of the unique local beers you can only find in Kiev. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company and we had a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend taking a tour with Wonders & Holidays. I learned so much about Ukrainian history that I wouldn't have on my own and the tour guides feel like friends (rather than just guides). I went on the Kiev in 180 minutes sightseeing tour with Igor and it was such a great experience. He was an excellent guide not only did he explain the history so well, but also answered any related or unrelated questions about Kiev and Ukraine. Both Igor and our driver Gestutas were so personable, accommodating, kind and professional - I hope I get the chance to go back again to take another tour with them.
