“Sehr interessante Führung”
Ludmila war ein toller Guide und hat uns mit sehr vielen interessanten und detaillierten Informationen sehr gut unterhalten! Eine Besichtigung des Klosters ohne Führung lohnt sich nicht – kaum Beschreibungen und Erklärungen auf Englisch. Diese Tour lohnt sich!

High quality Monastery.
Just spectacular. Stay in front of this monument and admire the architecture. Difficult to take pictures, you need a wide angle lens.

Excellent architecture and history tour!
I (Thene) was on a business trip to Kyiv in February, and chose to take a tour on a Saturday of the Pechersk Lavra Monastery. It was about 10 degrees and super cold, snowy, but my colleague and I loved this tour! Katrina was our guide as we walked all around the complex. We walked the covered bridge walkway to the old cave entrance. We toured the underground tunnels with a thin candle, seeing the old abbots and monks laid out for eternity. We visited the miniature museum (on the grounds), climbed a b-zillion stairs to the bell tower, and checked out the old dining hall attached to one of the churches. After exiting the bell tower, a church service was starting in the church nearby, and we even tucked in to hear the chanting monks. It was quite enjoyable in spite of the snow and cold, and Katrina had a long list of stories to tell about the founding of the site, and the ongoing saintly monks. I am so grateful that I took the opportunity to visit this site, and hope you’ll consider it for your next trip to Kyiv.

“Gute Führung in dem sehr beeindruckenden Kloster”

“Excellent private tour!”
This tour exceeded my expectations. We only had one full day in Kiev, and opted to book this tour as we had heard the Pechersk Monastery was a must see. We were picked up in a private vehicle at our hotel, and our very friendly guide (I believe her name was Slava) educated us on Ukranian history and culture during the drive to the Monastery. She had extensive knowledge of the Monastery’s history, which made the experience so much richer than it would have been if we had gone by ourselves. When our guide heard that we only had one day to explore the city, she took the time to draw out a walking route for us on a map, and gave us suggestions on the most important things to see. She went above and beyond what we expected, and it made our short stay a memorable one. I highly recommend this tour!

A must have for every visitor in Kiev!
This place is really unique and gives you an excellent insight of a world of its own. You can literally feel the power of silence in these historical buildings.

Sehr professionelle Führung, wir waren sehr zufrieden.
Auch auf Wünsche und Fragen gut eingegangen. Diese geführte Tour durch das Höhlenkloster ist jedenfalls sehr zu empfehlen.
