"I used Capital Tours during my stay in Kiev and would highly recommend them to anyone interested in visiting. For a first time traveler to Kiev, I couldn't have asked for more personalized and friendly service. After being promptly picked up at the airport, their tour guide Svet (who spoke excellent English) shared his vast knowledge of Ukrainian history and culture and some of the key points to visit in the city. He and Capital Tours were extremely helpful in coordinating my travel onward through Ukraine. Hands down the best experience I've had with a international tour company! Will be using them on my return!"

"Of all the trips I've taken as a journalist, the very best and most accommodating guide, historian and always-ready-to-help-with-a-drive or an explanation is "Svit" from capitaltourskiev. His English is superb and his understanding of Ukraine and his ability to put places, people, historical events into a truly eye-opening and fascinating educational experience is remarkable. He will design your tour according to what interests you, take you to eat Ukrainian food, suggest everything from iconic tourism places, such as Kyiv's Pechersk Lavra (Monastery of the Caves) to countryside walks and drives. If you are interested in the history of World War II, take his fascinating walking-talking explanation of the excellent National Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. I saw unforgettable things there about both the Soviets and the Nazis. He is jovial excellent company and answers endless questions with facts and context. When you return home, you have the feeling of both enjoying and learning about a complex country, one of the few western countries now engaged in a civil war with pro-Russian forces on its eastern border. It was far from my visit, which was to Kyiv, but the current situation in Ukraine adds a dimension of living history to your trip. So, of course, given his high standards of service, I would give 5 Stars ***** and very highly recommend capitaltourskiev.com."

"Svit was recommended to me as the best guide in Kiev by my hotel and I think they were likely right. Highly knowledgeable and “down to earth” Svit was waiting for me when I met him for my tour in October 2016. It was a very personal tour as Svit quickly understood my interests and adapted accordingly. Very keen, Svit took me to the places that interested me and my full day was very busy and most enjoyable. Svit had a similar sense of humour to mine and we got along tremendously. When you only have a limited time in a city it is so important that your guide is high class as otherwise a trip can be to an extent wasted. Svit also provided an excellent transfer to the international airport in Kiev. I am an experienced traveller, having travelled to over 70 countries in all continents. Svit is one of the best guides I have ever experienced. He has personality and character, is very enthusiastic and he makes you feel like a local in the city with little formality, which I greatly valued."

"I toured with Svit and the folks at Capital Tours Kyiv back over the summer, first as a simple car service and later as a tour. Svit has energy and enthusiasm without being over the top. Very personable, and you'll find him all the more engaging the more interest you show in Kyiv and Ukraine. And the thing with that is you'll get far more insight into the less tourist-oriented parts and learn about, say, the lengthy escalators in certain metro stations, the parks at which to hang out over a summer evening to enjoy more of the simple pleasures as many of the locals do. Plus you get to see all the main sites, like the monk caves, the military museum, the Chernobyl museum, Andrew's St/Descent... you choose really. Perhaps the best expression of the value and return I got out of Capital Tours is that my day spent touring Kyiv with Svit is easily the most memorable time in my extended stay in Kyiv, and I had a great time there."

"I was in Kiev for a few weeks and the tours I was on was excellent. you had time to look at what you wanted to see and have a meal when you wanted it. I would highly recommend Capital Tours for every thing you require in Kiev. I will defiantly be using them next time I visit."

"I have utilized (Capital Tours and transfers Kiev) twice now and I highly recommend their business. I had Svet as my tour guide both times I was visiting Kiev. He is an awesome and energetic tour guide with a lot of knowledge of Ukraine and Eastern Europe."
