Bring the experience to you with our virtual tours

When travel just isn’t an option, there is a way to learn about our history, discover the stories of our ancestors, and experience new places, traditions, and cultures.

Dorosh Heritage Tours offers our services virtually for anyone who is unable to travel in person but wants to see their ancestral village and authentic Ukrainian culture and traditions. If you have a parent or grandparent who is curious about their heritage, this is a perfect way to give the gift of family history.

The starting point is knowing the village where your ancestors lived. If you don’t know that yet, we can help you find out through our Genealogy Research.

Ancestral villages often don’t appear on Google maps, so it’s hard to see them from a distance. In our virtual tours, we visit the village for you and take professional photos and short videos to capture what it looks like, from the sign at the entrance to the village through to the local shops and residents, landscape, landmarks, and nature. We also include any historical photos of the village that we can find to provide added context of what life looked like for your ancestors.

Digital Family Album

High-quality photos and short videos

Each virtual tour results in a digital family album of high-quality photos and short videos, each with a descriptive caption. The goal is to make it feel like you’re walking through your ancestral town, seeing it with your own eyes, learn about its past and present. This is an especially incredible experience when we discover living relatives and interview them so that you can see who they are and hear their stories.

When it’s ready, you’ll receive your family photo album through a link that can easily be shared with your loved ones.

The Virtual Tour paired with Genealogy Research is a great way to preserve your family heritage and pass it on to future generations.

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.

I was first put in touch with Olia and Andriy by a contact in Australia Krystyna from Lost Histories, in October 2021. Olia was able to find out a huge amount of information about the Polish side of my family that would have been completely impossible for me to research. All those that would know any information have long gone, so the information I've received is invaluable. Each step of the way has been explained in great detail including photos, maps both historically and to date, to help me understand the geography and genealogy. Each time a new development was possible, it was explained to me in detail to give me the full picture and why it might be important. Any question I had was answered in great detail in a timely manner. Incredibly Olia's research was able to continue on into this year while Ukraine was having such terrible trauma. I cannot thank you enough for your help with my story, my love and appreciation. Peace on earth, Kate.

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
