It was an absolutely amazing trip and very thorough. I speak a little Ukrainian but prefer English. The tour guide was very attentive and explained all my questions even though I had many. Highly recommended. I wouldn't go without a guide here because there's so much more you can learn if you do have a guide.

An excellent tour of the Monastery. The guide did a great job explaining the history and the architecture and conveyed a sense of the importance of the site to Ukrainian people. She mixed in some great stories, which made the tour all the more interesting. Within the grounds there is a museum of microminiatures with superb sculptures and paintings visible only under microscopes, made by Mykola Syadristy.

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2017

The tour was okay. Our driver Sasha was excellent but he left us with another guide to tour the monastery and I cam away confused about what we had seen. It would have helped if at the beginning we had been shown a map of the area and had been told what buildings were inside and what they were for. I think we should also have been told at the beginning what the cost to enter various buildings were and what our options were going to be. I felt as if he guide was just trying to fill up an allotted amount of time,

It was a good tour but I did find it a little rushed. The guide was very informative but maybe lacked a little bit of spiritual connection with this truly amazing place. He was very factual and realistic.
The mummified Saints are quite an experience to behold.
