Samples of my custom tours around Ukraine

All my tours are individual tours.

 Each tour is personalized. My custom guided private tours and private excursions are build based on any of my existing itineraries or created from the scratch specifically for your interests and tailored around you.  Family research, castles, churches, synagogues, history, literature, photography....
You’ll get the flexibility to decide on every aspect of your trip. They are flexible and can be fully adapted to the needs and interests of a group of one to six people.

Give me your dates when are you coming, and how many days are you planning to spend in Ukraine. Give me a rough idea of what are you planning to see in Ukraine. If you are planning to do family research, send me the name of your ancestor's villages. If you are coming just to travel around Ukraine and see the beauty of my country, name main places you would like to visit. Then I can help you create the best itinerary based on your requirements.

Ask me, write to me, tell me what you want! I will do my best to create perfect tour for you.

Siret to Kiev with Gordon and his son

I met Gordon and his son at the border between Romania and Ukraine. Main target of the trip was the small village Makarov, near Kyiv. The place where their ancestors lived. And it would be a pity if we would not see places like Chernivtsi National University, Khotyn fortress, Kamianets-Podilskyi Castle, Grave of The Baal Shem Tov and main tourist sites in Kiev.

West Ukraine custom trip with Katie, Mark and Family

I met this family in the resort town of Tatariv near Yaremche. Our trip was planned in advance, the family planned to visit places where their ancestor lived, villages Kosiv and Mykhailivka. We have allowed two days for this trip, because the villages were located at a considerable distance from each other. We also wanted to visit some places of interests that were on our route. Within two days we have seen many interesting places such as castle and city hall in Buchach, wooden churches and castle in Chortkiv, fortress in Khotyn.

She told us a story about a very kind noble family.

Guided Tour Lviv and Brody with Aharom and Marian

A three-day tour with a fascinating Jewish family who came from America to see where their ancestors lived before emigration. We managed to find a house where they lived in the city of Lviv.

We all must remember and do our best to ensure that tragedies like the holocaust never happen again.
