I have been trying to research my grandfathers side of the family for many years with very little progress. This is until I contacted Andriy and his team, within the space of weeks I found out more than I found in many years of searching. I can’t thank them enough for the wonder research they’ve carried out, it’s been a smooth and enjoyable process from the outset and can’t wait to continue my journey with Dorosh heritage tours.

We met Andriy Dorosh in 2013 through a trip advisor review on a Ukraine forum. What a wonderful find that was! When we visited Lviv that fall , he arranged a guide to escort us to Bavoriv looking for my husbands maternal grandfather’s family. Without any prior research or knowledge we amazingly managed to find family nearby in Grabovets. Andriy had impressed us with his friendliness , professionalism and enthusiasm . Since then I have followed him on FB in hopes of returning to Ukraine and touring with him. This summer when Andriy posted about doing virtual tours due to the pandemic, I had the idea to look for my husbands maternal grandmother as a surprise 70th birthday gift. Andriy’s professional researcher, Olga , did an amazing job researching 270 people from 80 families to potentially locate living relatives. Andriy and his team visited Grabovets and Bavoriv filming the surrounding landscape and ancestral villages. With the use of an old map that Olga had researched, they located the ancestral plot of the family. Then miraculously, they even located 6 living relatives there and interviewed some of them. One cousin cried “she had been waiting for her family to find her”. Andriy presented us with the most beautiful and emotional video of his visit there. Now we have even made contact with some of the family through Facebook and video chat! Truly amazing experience all thanks to the interest and perseverance of Andriy and his team at Dorosh Heritage tours. We will be forever grateful and now Andriy is a part of our family story. We will definitely plan to return in 2022 to travel and visit our family with Andriy. We so highly recommend he and his team for one of the most memorable experiences in our lives. If you have potentially lost family in Ukraine, look for them it is so worth it!

I have had the most professional and exciting experience with Dorosh Tours. I wanted to research my maternal line in Ukraine. I didn't have much information to go on and thought it would be very difficult and maybe impossible to learn about this side of my family. Dorosh /Olia really left no stone unturned and I was so happy with my research reports they provided. I now have names,dates and places to fill in all previous empty blanks in my family tree. I found the whole experience wonderful, even the price. I highly recommend their services. Wendy
