We spent 10 days with Yaroslav exploring in the Carpathian mountains and west of Lviv. He was a wealth of information, able to bring history alive and allow you to understand Ukraine and Ukrainians today. Nothing was too much trouble and he was willing to take you off the tourist track. We've never laughed so much!
