Old town tour

Old town tour

This tour is the hallmark of Kiev!

It’s the most popular and called-for one among tourists – during 3 hours of the walking tour you’ll be immersed in the city’s atmosphere and see the most beautiful places of interest.

Dear tourist, we invite you to become a traveller in time. You will see the magnificent Golden Gate, through which princes and princesses entered Kiev. You will see the most sacred place in Kiev, where witches and wizards gathered, and where pagan idols stood, but now there is a temple. Believe us, you will never forget the magic energy of this place.

You will find out where the legendary sword of the apostle Andrew is and you will see a church without bells. You will walk through the remains of the ancient castle and stand on the mountain, with which in the 5th century our city began. And after that, you will walk along the mysterious Andrew’s Descent. On the way, you will meet a haunted house and the most mystical writer of the 20th century. Our journey will end at a magical source, which pipes are believed to be connected with healing waters of the Jordan River.

Our walking tour will not take you a lot of effort – it’s straightforward because almost all the time we’ll be walking slightly downhill… Do you know that Kiev like Rome is built on seven hills?

Daniel Kiefer - review about KievInsiders private guide Oksana

Star Star Star Star Star

During business-trip to Kiev I was looking for a guide who could show me the most interesting places within 4 hours and could tell me as much as possible about Ukraine and current situation in the country. Kiev Insiders was the fastest agency answering to my Email and it turned out to be the best joice with very good services because my guide, Oksana also contact me immediately and was absolutely flexible in adjusting to time possibilities and individual questions as well as spontaneus tour change due to rainy weather. Every minute of the city tour was very interesting and informative and Oksana was not only able to explain history and places of Kiev but also a pleasant and great discussion partner about people, church, culture, music, politics and daily life in Ukraine. She managed to give me a deep view in the country and his inhabitants within shortest time and I'm already looking forward to continue exploration of Ukraine during my next travel with her guidance.

I did a three hour walking tour of the city with Zhenya. She took me to all the main sights, like St Volodymyr’s Cathederal, St Sophia’s and St Michael’s but also hidden treasures like the Children’s Landscape Park. Zhenya was really friendly and knew all about the city and it’s history. She even took me to a great place for lunch! I’d really recommend taking this tour.

Hello! I’m eager to share my impressions about the tours which I’ve booked at KievInsiders. I’ve opted for the walking tour around the city and the tour for football fans. And I’m very happy because it has brightened up my stay in Kiev a lot! We’ve had a great time with my private guide. She is a cheerful, energetic person and a good guide. This city makes her life and for her every place has its own funny story which I liked to listen to. The dates will be forgotten but such stories will stick in your memory for a long time! By the way, the football tour includes beer tasting which I didn’t know about and it was a pleasant surprise for me. I realized that they brew delicious beer in Ukraine but, probably, one has to know the right places. Thank you once more, I’ve had a very good time on the weekend in Kiev.
