    When we were in Kiev we didn't visit Babi Yar a well known atrocity memorial site. There was far too much time wasted walking around Kiev when using a minibus and drop off/pick up would have been much better use of time and could have seen more sites.... Show more

    Thanks for your feedback. Each of our trips has a 'Trip Pace' grading and we classed this trip as 'Full On'. We have packed as much into the trip as we can - with so much to see in Ukraine and Moldova, it would be easy to not see as much during the two... Show more

    The tour of the Museum of Historical Treasures was very tedious - the museum guide didn't speak any english so everything had to be translated. It would be prefereable if he pointed out a few things and the group was left to meander through rather than... Show more

    Definitely do it. This was a fantastic trip. Whilst my original motivation was visiting Chernobyl, there was so much more to see and do.

    The airport pick up didn’t have good communication, I think! Before to start the trip, I was very emphasize & discussion about this part with your colleagues. Unfortunately, I didn’t meet driver, & have to pay $35.00 to take Taxis to the hotel.
