Reviews

Read from our guests what they have to say about this tour

We enjoyed a great walking tour in Lviv with our guide. She was engaging, well prepared and did a great job. The walking tour gave us an understanding of the 700 hundred year old history of the Jewish community in Lviv. It was very interesting and moving to hear the unjust treatment this Jewish community experienced at the hand of totalitarian regimes. I would highly recommend this 3 hour walking tour.

5/5

Me and my friends decided to spend Saturday afternoon to get to know the city we currently study in. We got really interested with the Jewish Lviv theme, so we came for this walking tour and it was actually amazing! We got to know so many things about history, traditions and we were taken back in time with fantastic tour guide. She told us and show us so many interesting things, and everything went so well in very friendly atmosphere. I could honestly say that it was the best free walking tour I have been to so far thanks to our guide.

Such a wonderful and informative tour of the sadly often terrible history of the Jewish population of Lviv. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Met some great folks on the tour too and we even stopped off at a superb little coffee shop en route. What's not to like? I'd recommend these guys to anyone.
