Peter and his guides from Lviv Buddy are THE tour operator in Lviv. I can really recommend their tours to everyone. You don't only get a brief overview about the highlights and sights of Lviv, you can even dive deeper into it on one of their themed tours. And in the evenings you can explore the nightlife on the Craft Beer Tour - very cool idea! Peter and his team know the city very well and can answer all questions about nice locations and places to go out in the city

Being a tour guide myself, I can tell you that Peter and the Lviv Buddies do city tours right. Interesting facts, a personal touch and a unique style make the tours some of the best that I visited. Lviv might not be as wild as Alaska, but with Lviv Buddy you definitely find the wildest spots in this beautiful city. And the best of all: Through the tours I could connect with other travelers and locals. My trip to Lviv would not have been the same without them. Be sure not to miss out!
