Dnieper River Cruise: riverboat trip programs
Kiev Panorama

Kiev


Express-program: 1 hour boat trip for observing the main Kiev sights located on the Dnieper river banks: the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra (XI century), such Soviet Era monuments as the Arch of Peoples’ Friendship and Motherland Monument, three bridges across the Dnieper (there are 7 bridges in Kiev). You will learn the basic facts from the history of Kiev, which is more than 1,500 years old (yes, the local hills remember the Vikings and Byzantines).

Evening river trip (with live music)

Kiev


A romantic Dnieper River Cruise. You will see the last sun rays shining on the golden domes of ancient temples and the splendid panorama of illuminated Kiev. Rustling waves and sounds of live music will bring you from the ancient district of Podol to the Paton Bridge with its impressive view of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra.

Kiev Sea Cruise

The Kiev Reservoir


The Kiev Reservoir (the Ukrainians usually call it the Kiev Sea) is located to the north of Kiev. It was built in the middle of the last century. The reservoir dam is 70 km long and is considered to be the longest artificial dam in the world. To reach the Kiev Sea riverboats must go through a shipping lock.

You will be able to observe the “locking” process from the deck of the riverboat and sail along the Kiev Sea, where sailing regattas are regularly held in summer time. The cruise duration is up to 4 hours.

Cruise and excursion to Mezhyhirya

Mezhyhirya


Mezhyhirya is a historic district in the north of Kiev and the site of the former residence of President Yanukovich. Now it is the National Park open to tourists.

The Riverboat Cruise and excursion to Mezhyhirya is a full-day program. A trip along the Dnieper and the Kiev Sea lasts about 2 hours, and the residence sightseeing will take the rest of time.

During the excursion to Mezhyhirya you can visit the luxurious Yanukovich mansion, the cynological center, the zoo and the Museum of retro cars.

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.
