Essential Lviv Tour

A comprehensive 3 hour tour of the best Lviv has to offer

On our Essential Lviv Private Walking Tour, we show you the things you really have to see in Lviv. And the best part is: Instead of walking in a big group, you have the guide completely for yourself and those who are with you. Essential Lviv is the extended version of our Basic Lviv 2 hour Tour, with more time to discover the Jewish and Austrian History of the city and get a great insight into what makes up the magic of this city.
