It is one of the most beautiful monasteries in Ukraine and a must see if you are in or near Lviv: Pochayiv Lavra. The monastery that was once founded by monks on a run from invaders has become a place of pilgrimage for many people. The various churches feature rich details, beautiful mosaics and spread the feeling to be visiting a holy place. Currently you can not only visit the cave that is the holiest of the places in the monastery, you may also watch local craftsmen at the decoration of the walls and interior of the newest and largest cathedral.

We will drive you further to the village of Pidkamin. On they way we will enjoy the local countryside and give you a chance to take pictures of the picturesque villages.
Less famous than Pochaiv but still a nice stop on the road trip to Pochayiv and back is Pidkamin. This small town features a bizarre rock formation that gave the town it's name (kamin means rock and pid means under). The inselberg sticks out of the landscape and is sure worth a visit. The Greek-Catholic monastery of Pidkamin is currently being renovated and is slowly getting back to it's old glory. Most days you will be alone in this area. It is a great way to see some of Ukraine's beautiful countryside.
The customer support at Lviv Buddy was extremely promptly responsive on Whatsapp and made this outing happen for me at quite short notice. They were very helpful and agreed to add another stop for me too in addition to the advertised itinerary. My guide on the day and my driver were both excellent and knowledgeable and very friendly. I had a great time and learnt a lot about Lviv and Ukraine from them as we talked all the way to Pochayiv and back! Thank you Lviv Buddy for all the help and great arrangements! Highly recommended!
My parents and I were in Lviv and we wanted to make a day trip to Tarkiv, Pochayiv monastery and Kremenets. I saw a couple of companies offer the tour, but because Peter offered a better price, we decided to visit these places with him. And we had lots of fun! The day after we joined a walking tour and because Peter had learned a day before that I was a mathematician, he made one extra stop so that I could see the famous Scottish cafe where mathematicians used to gather (before ww2). He is very attentive and eager to help. In this company the visitors are a priority, so I would recommend anyone visiting Lviv join one of his tours.
