Part of our Destination Ukraine experiences

I look forward to showing you all the highlights of Ukraine - from east to west, ranging from the golden domes of Kyiv, the maritime charm of Odessa, to the quaint mountain villages of the Carpathian Mountains, the multicultural Chernivtsi and the ‘Paris of Ukraine’ – the beautiful Lviv. This Cobblestone Freeway Prestige Experience provides travellers with the very best in accommodations, food, drink, and experiences.

This is my most extensive tour offering my travellers the opportunity to visit the most popular regions in Ukraine. I believe in enjoying culture at a comfortable pace paired with exceptional service and I have personally overseen every aspect of this travel experience to ensure you will enjoy every moment.

Not only will you be exposed to the fantastic history that Ukraine has to offer, but you’ll get up-close and personal with the people and culture of this wonderful land. I know this will be an unforgettable experience staying with you for a lifetime.
