New and fun electric scooter tours and rentals in downtown Kyiv.
The dusk light is wonderful for photos on the Sunset Tour
When Steve, the English owner invited us to try out his new Scooter tour business in our favourite city of Kyiv we jumped at the chance.
Located just a couple of minutes walk from the main street Khreshchatyk, their office has the perfect central location for exploring every direction of the city. On offer currently are a selection of 3 tours:
- Essential Kyiv – 2 hours
- Sunset Scoot – 2 Hours
- Motherland Tour – 3 Hours
Custom tours can also be arranged along with scooter rentals if you wish to explore the city on your own.
On arrival, we were greeted with smiling face of our tour guide Maria who explained what we would be doing along with full safety instructions. Once we signed our life away with the mandatory waiver, we headed outside to try the scooters in the small yard under the guidance of the Maria and Steve who jog by your side until you get the hang of it. Honestly, it’s more difficult in the yard than it is on the streets, so don’t be put off if you find the initial training difficult!
We soon headed out a short distance to our first stop on Maidan Nezalezhnosti to hear some fun facts and take selfies with the bikes and ourselves in front of Kyiv’s most famous square.
Next, we went up a steep hill on the way to St. Michaels Church before continuing to Saint Volodymyr Hill to see great views over the river Dnipro and beyond. Passing the funicular, we descended Andriyivskyy Descent and to another viewpoint to see a different angle to the city. By this time the sun was starting to set and the light and mood were great.
Next, back to Andriyivskyy and along the alley of painters arriving at the newly built pedestrian bridge. It’s still very busy and crowded and despite the fact that there is a cycle path across it, people will still get in your way anyway!
Through the friendship arch, we had to put our foot down to ascend the long and curvy road to the top of Mariinsky Park. Speed is especially important at this point, especially when there are two of you on the bike, else one of you may end up walking! Across lovers bridge and to our final stop of Mariinsky Palace to hear some more stories and facts.
By now the sun had set so it was time to switch on our headlights and head back through night Kyiv to the office.
All throughout the trip Maria was on hand with interesting and fun facts to entertain us. Steve, the owner also came along for the ride and helped us out when we had any questions.
We can highly recommend this unique way to see the city and suggest you give them a visit to support their new business and have a fun few hours learning about Kyiv and trying out their electric scooter tour!
How to Find From Khreshchatyk, walk 100 metres up Prorizna Street, turn left through the arch and you'll see ScootKyiv on your right.
