I have just returned from my first visit to Ukraine, travelling with 4 cousins, one of whom has visited 6 times, always with Dorosh Heritage Tours. Now I know why! Andriy has 30 reviews on TripAdvisor, and ALL are 5 star reviews rated "Excellent". These reviews are torrents of praise and superlatives - in my experience all richly deserved. I am astounded by the breadth of Andriy's talents; his tours are meticulously planned, yet he welcomes last-minute changes. Unfailingly punctual, yet he is always totally relaxed. Andriy is at the same time very professional yet charmingly warm and personable. He operates from the very highest ethics and principles. Very quickly he became an adopted member of our family and a valued friend. Andriy displays an encyclopedic knowledge of the history, culture, customs, cuisine and peoples of his beloved country. He employs a broad network of excellent local tour guides and genealogists; Julia and Victor in particular. I came with high expectations; all were hugely exceeded. Ukraine is a picturesque nation of faith-filled people, history, heartache and hope. It tugs on my heartstrings still. I have every intention of returning, most assuredly with Andriy as friend and guide, and I pray it will be soon! Thank you, Andriy, for an unforgettable and life-enhancing introduction to Ukraine! I miss you!

For those of you reading this and contemplating such a trip, Dorosh Heritage Tours is most definitely the finest way to go!
