Lovely and knowledgeable tour guide
Natalia was a great guide. Very good communication before the tour. Excellent tour through the caves and the rest of the Lawra. Very knowledgeable about details with a touch of Da Vinci Code, which makes the tour outstanding. Highly recommended

Kiev Lavra Monastery - All Included Private Tour!
Had a very enjoyable time and our guide Ksenia was lovely and knowledgeable. The chapels are beautiful as are the grounds in general. We loved the underground tunnel and the miniature museum. It was small but so unique and interesting. Definitely a must see when in Kiev.

Kyiv Combo: Private Sightseeing Tour and Visit of Kyiv Pechersk Lavra
My wife and I had a great experience touring with Nicolai on July 31. His English language ability was excellent and his love of the city of Kyiv and his country was evident. I think we received as good a taste of Ukrainian history, culture, and current events as it's possible to get in five hours. This tour package is an excellent value.

Private Tour: Kiev Pechersk Lavra and Museum of Historical Treasures of Ukraine
A really fun tour. The Pechersk Lavra is a must see in Kyiv, and Iryna is a wonderful guide. I learned a lot about the history of the monastery. After the monastery we visited the Gold Museum, Iryna had previously worked there as a guide and as such was very knowledgeable about the exhibition and the history of the items on display. It was really interesting to learn about the different peoples that have called Kyiv home throughout history.

Kyiv Pechersk Lavra Monastery
Unless you are very knowledgeable about religion the best way to experience the monastery is with a guide. I had a very experienced veteran guide on the tour. Was able to tell me about the background of the monastery, and the meanings of the many images I saw throughout the day. The most interesting part was the caves. Unfortunately you can not take pictures in many parts of the monastery. Also on the grounds is the Micro Miniatures Museum which was interesting.

Kyiv Pechersk Lavra Monastery
Great private tour with a very knowledgeable guide an elderly lady with extensive knowledege of the Lavra and its history. A perfect and convenient way to get more out of your visit to the Lavra. Pick up from the hotel and drop off at the hotel or, in this case, at St. Sophia Cathedral. Highly recommended!

Private Guided Tour of Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra
An excellent tour of the Monastery. The guide did a great job explaining the history and the architecture and conveyed a sense of the importance of the site to Ukrainian people. She mixed in some great stories, which made the tour all the more interesting. Within the grounds there is a museum of microminiatures with superb sculptures and paintings visible only under microscopes, made by Mykola Syadristy.

Private Tour: Kiev Pechersk Lavra and Museum of Historical Treasures of Ukraine
We enjoyd our Kiev Pechersk Lavra Tour very much. It's an ancient beautiful and secrete place, full of history and mystique--- the heart of Kiev, in our opinion. Our tour guide Iryna spoke very good english, was very knowledgeable in history, answered all of our questions, was generous in time, professional, and very pleasant.

Riddles and Mysteries of Kiev-Pechersk Lavra
If I could give this 10 stars I would. First of all Natalia is more than your typical tour guide, she is a women full of love and compassion. She will take care of you on this trip I promise you. Despite the weather we were in, she went out of her way to make it the best time possible for me and Im really grateful for that. She is very knowledgeable and what I loved most about our time was that there was message about it all, her perspective and the history of the Ukrainian culture of religion. If you want a more in depth perspective of the history in this place, this is your women. She will give you experience emotionally, just as much as it is visually. You touched me deeply Natalia.. i appreciate all that you done for me. Take care (:
