How we can help you get the best story about Lviv and Western Ukraine​

Hi, my name is Peter Althaus and I am the founder of Ukraine Buddy, Lviv Buddy and Kharkiv Buddy. Originally however, I am a journalist, travel blogger and writer from Germany, who decided to write stories in a different way. Now I am creating tours with my team that are of very different topics. Many staff members are historians, some are biologists or architects, some even artists. I assembled this team to give visitors a local first-hand experience with a personal touch. 

People love our tours, we are the best-rated tour company in Western Ukraine. And we are convinced that more people should see Lviv and know about its beautiful places, tasty food, wonderful surroundings and friendly people. That is why it’s important to us to be in touch with people who can spread this message and help make Lviv more diverse and admired. To make people aware of Ukraine, Lviv and of the possibilities to experience it with our company, we have several offers for journalists to join us on our trips and on occasion we can also organize press trips for journalists and bloggers. Please have a look!

Best regards,

Peter Althaus

Some media reports that we supported

Complimentary tours for media

That’s why we are happy about any interest of the media in our work. And that’s also why we provide complimentary tours for journalist, bloggers and vloggers, as well as other people involved in the media who are working on pieces about Lviv.

To gain access to any of our tours, please contact us and send us a link to your media kit and/or your social media profiles. Add the names, dates and times of any desired tours. We will be happy to review your request them and confirm with you. Please write us here.

Tailor-made personal tours for media

Apart from free attendance for any of our tours for people wanting to produce a piece featuring us, we also help media outlets to organise custom made trips to enrich your story about Ukraine and the region. We are experts on Galicia and Western Ukraine and support travellers who are looking for advice on travel in Ukraine. We know where you should go next and can organise you an itinerary that fits the topics you would like to show people at home. We are sure, we can even find things you have no idea of yet and make your pieces even greater. For this please contact us and let us know the dates you are here and what you have planned so far. We will then try to send you a tailored tour for your needs with suggestions on locations and people to talk to. Please note, however, that this service is not complimentary.
