Coffee break during the Lviv Free Walking Tour

We always stop on our free tours for a coffee or a drink. It’s one of our traditions, because we want to give you a chance to ask us any questions and to get to know each other and the other participants. We love being social and we want people to meet each other and make this world a friendlier place. At this occasion you can try some real Lviv cheesecake (Sirnik) and some famous Lviv coffee! 

Gifts and a great service to make you happy

Our idea of free tours is to make it as comfortable for our guests as possible. Not just with great guiding and an interesting route, but also with small extras. That’s why we created a Lviv Map that tells you all the important facts about Lviv and Ukraine and gives you tips from our guides on where to go in the city and what to do. And just like our tours they are free! Each participant will get one at the end of the free tour!
Also on rainy days our guides don’t just have an umbrella for themselves, but also for you! Yes, you read right, we will provide you with umbrellas during the duration of the tour! But we can only know how many umbrellas to take, if you reserve a spot for our tour before it starts.

No, it's not, but...

… our guides come to the meeting point anyways. But in case the group is larger than 25 people and we did not know about this before, we will have to prefer people that have a reservation. If you make a reservation we can always organise an extra guide a guarantee a great quality tour for everyone.

And if you are a group of more than 6 people...

… we are very sorry, but we usually won’t permit you to the free tour. But we are happy to offer you some great private tours that can be very inexpensive. Check for example our Private Must See Tour and others for a small fee.
