Hi all,

Hello everyone.

I am hoping to take a trip (by train from chisinau) to Odessa in 2 days time.

I will be in Kiev May 22nd - May 24rd and I would like to find an English speaking person to guide me around city for one day. I am not looking for an organized tour group but an independent person who can walk around the city with me.

Hi folks!!

Any idea about how much can be a taxi from Kiev Zhulyani to Tirapol in Transnistria ?
It's around 490 kms and we will arrive at 2h30 a.m. I know there are trains and buses but I'm in a hurry and don't mind to pay more, just need to know more and less how much it could be.
Thank you all !!!

Hi all,

Im in contact with a tour company about joining their Chernobyl tour but as I am arriving late for the kiev meeting point, they offered to charge me $100USD to take me from the airport direct to the Dytyatky check point to meet the rest of the group.

IS this price about right of do you think I can get much cheaper - Im curious to know if they are ripping me off or not

thanks for your help!

Heading to Kiev next month.

  1. Any recommendations for a good midrange hotel?

  2. Do the museums (Museum of the Great Patriotic War, Chernobyl Museum, etc...) have descriptions in English?

  3. Any recommendations for banyas? LP has nothing and I've found very little online.
