Ukraine is a country still in its infancy, rarely visited by the Western world, yet has so much to offer.... hospitable people, great food & drink, fantastic culture.
This remarkable trip will have you venturing into the history and atmosphere of Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine.
Many don’t realise this secret as Kyiv is only just 3 hours away from the UK. Frequented by both budget and scheduled airlines, it gives one the chance to explore Kyiv and visit a city rarely visited by others in just a weekend break!

Day One (Friday): Arrive in Kyiv (D)
You have got several options getting to Kyiv directly from London but we recommend Wizz Air or British Airways. Wizz Air departs London Luton at 7.20am arriving at 12.35pm. British Airways departs Heathrow at 8.20am arriving at 13.35pm.
Once in Kyiv you will be met by a driver whom will transfer you to your accommodation in the heart of Kyiv.
We will get together for a late afternoon/early evening tour of the city before having dinner. The rest of the evening will be yours to further go out and explore with the expert help of a local guide.
Day Two (Saturday): In Kyiv (BLD)
In the morning there will be a tour should you wish, to help you wander and further discover the heart of the capital.
A special treat is in store today as in the afternoon you are taken to a forest on the outskirts of Kyiv. Here, some friendly locals will join you to share in one of the favorite pastimes now embedded into Ukrainian culture, having “shaslick” over an open fire with a few friends. Today you'll enjoy true Ukrainian hospitality.
Day Three (Sunday): Departure (B)
Today you will leave Kyiv and return home.
