Kiev Tourist Traps: 24 reviews and 22 photos
When we first arrived Kiev with train we decided to take a taxi to the hostel. We could not find any buses (found out later that we were on the wrong side of the station). We had seen in the guidebooks that it was best to go for a taxo with a meter. So we did. We ended up paying about 250 local money. It was a 10minuts ride. It was a total rip off!! We did not take a taxi again in Ukraine after that.
Unique Suggestions: Order a taxi over the phone. Or get your hotel to order one for you. Thay know more about companies that are honest.
Fun Alternatives: The bus system can be hard to figure out cause everythins is in crylic. But try, it can save you a lot of money!!
