What you'll do

We'll hit some of the brightest landmarks of the center to learn more about Kyiv's history, architecture and lifestyle! AND we'll make several stops to grab authentic street food and drink at hidden places on our way ! No burgers, no falafels - only typical local things.

I will tell you interesting facts about the sights we'll see while walking, so it is not just about food- it is about knowing the city!:)

We'll start our experience at the heart of Kyiv with a legendary Soviet speciality. It exists for 38 years & it was the first fast food in the city :)

We'll see a spot where the Chernobyl TV series was filmed and continue our walk through a labyrynth of yards with a Muslim garden and an unexpected street art.

We'll drink coffee in a hidden hipster place where they play chess, ping pong, feed birds or are immerced in computer screens.

We 'll try traditional baked pyrizhky with curious fillings and kompot at an iconic location, that opened almost right after the World War II.

We'll sit on a bench in the park, hugging one of the cutest retro-monuments and eating a traditional Ukrainian bite.

We'll continue at a hidden coffeeshop, a meeting place for young intellectuals and avid readers.

We'll finish at a colorful market to taste caviar, salo & home-made things :) See you!

My name is Mila and I'm a certified private guide with big love for culture, history, architecture, gastronomy and art. I do good-mood private tours in Kyiv in several languages: English, Italian, Polish, Ukrainian and Russian.

I am into sports, travel, reading, cooking, going out and exploring the world. I love active lifestyle, trying local foods and finding off-the-beaten track spots.

I want to share my knowledge and love for Kyiv with you!

Where you'll be

We will explore the center in a fun way - not only by sightseeing & learning the history, but also by eating & drinking like locals.

We'll eat 3 street specialities in different places that unite both students & bussinesmen in suits. Those spots have preserved their recipes and style for decades.

We'll drink at 2 hidden locations, the 1st is favoured by hipsters & alternative youth, while the 2nd is for intellectuals and readers .

Over the top great experience with Lyudmyla and street eats, hidden drinks, cool walks. So much more than I ever expected all because of her passionate desire to bring some of the Kiev magic to life. I hope all who are visiting Kiev will take the time to experience the many interesting sights, foods and drink I was given the opportunity to enjoy.

Had a lovely time exploring Kyiv with Myla. She had a vast knowledge of the city and brought us to two cool coffee shops. We really enjoyed our experience!

I had a wonderful time touring Kiev with Mila. Learning about the history of Kiev and Ukraine, and tasting some local delights was a great experience— made even better by Mila’s knowledge of both historical events and pop culture (see where they filmed HBO’s Chernobyl!) If you’re looking for some interesting fun facts and cool, hidden spots, this tour’s for you.

Nice tour, she show me things that even when I have been in the place I didn't even notice, the food had an amazing taste. The explanation about the history was pretty good.

Die private Führung mit Mila hat mir viele neue Erkenntnisse über Kiew vermittelt. Wir hatten einen tollen Abend zusammen. Sie führte mich an Strassenstände, wo es Essen zu kaufen gibt, wo ich alleine nie hingegangen oder übersehen hätte. Sie führte mich in Hinterhöfe, wo es einmaliges zu entdecken gab. Das Essen von Ständen, Bäckerei war gut, frisch und einmalig. Die Atmosphäre war beeindruckend bei einem Kaffee in einem lebendigen Hinterhof voll mit Leuten und zum Schluss bei einem Drink in einer Hinterhofbar.
