21st century display of decadent spending
Joy P

There were a number of options included with this tour which listed a tour of the dog training facility. When I discussed with our guide that we would like to go there she wasn't aware it was an option. After enquiring about it she advised we wouldn't have time to fit it in after the ?hombre (house). I may not have read the information correctly but when we got to the house it was a cash only entrance fee. The house is large , a blatant display of 21st century wealth instead of the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th century homes/ palaces we later saw on our holiday. . I still wish I had seen the dog training facilities. We saw a lot more grand homes and palaces during our stay but no more dog training facility options.

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear that you didn’t manage to visit the dog training center during the tour, but we hope that the overall impression of the Mezhyhirya Residence was good. As it is stated in the inclusions/exclusions section, the tour includes entry tickets to the park, while all the rest of the locations are optional and for an additional fee. It is difficult indeed to see all the territory in a four-hour tour, as the territory of the residence is almost 140 ha, and the dog training center is located far from the entrance. However, the guide should have taken into consideration your desire to visit it and adjust the itinerary accordingly. Usually, most people want to get inside the main mansion Honka, but in your case, the guide should have offered you a visit to the dog training center instead of Honka. Please, accept our apologies that the tour didn’t fully meet your expectation. Thank you once again for your comments, they help us improve our service. We wish you many interesting travels in the future and you are always welcome in Ukraine!

It was great, except you are not guaranteed a tour inside the Honka building. However, I got lucky and got a tour inside.

This was one of the best tours I had with Viator. Highly recommend . The guide spoke clear English. However the guide invited another tour group to join us so we did not have a private tour as we thought it would be for us. Very interesting.

I definitely recommend this tour for anyone wishing to not only see a display of corruption at its worst but also to get insights into the man Viktor Yanukovich whose bumbling actions would spark the 2014 Europmaidan revolution. I booked the six hour tour and was picked up at my hostel by the tour guide. We spent the entire day at the estate and I got to see all the major sites from the mansion to the zoo, the dogs, the car collection, and the grounds. I found the tour guide to be very helpful and knowledgeable. He was able to answer all my questions. I would recommend doing this tour on the weekends when all sites are open the mansion and car collection are closed at the beginning of the week to get the most out of your visit.
