SEYR, Canada, Kyiv culinary tour

We enjoyed an amazingly diverse and delicious cheese tasting at a goat farm outside Lviv. We took an invigorating hike through several of the hills and parks in the center of the city and had a wonderful Varenki making lessen in a local apartment. It was a great two days of things I would not have thought to do, or been able to arrange myself. Our guide was fantastic – friendly and professional. She went above and beyond our tours to make sure we had the best time in the city, recommending great off the tourist map restaurants.
