Ukraine airlines will upgrade your seat to business class if you find a lower price elsewhere

Hi! I'm wondering if anyone could help me plan our trip to Ukraine and St Petersburg.
We are IYH planning to fly in to Kiev on Aug. 7.
Where would you recommend staying in Kiev in the Jewish community? How would you recommend going from the airport to the jewish community?
Would you take a tour guide to visit anything  in kiev?
We are planning to go do the following from Tues- Wed Thurs-
Mezhibuzh, Niezhin Anipoli (Berditchev if not out of the way)
We are planning to stay iyh in Haditch for Shabbos and leave Sunday back to Kiev.
Any suggestions on how we would structure our trip? Where to stay on the way?
I imagine one night in Mezhibuzh and two in haditch.
Additionally where would you stay in St. Petersburg and is there a driver or a tour guide to take there?

Thanks again, I appreciate your help!

Why shabbos in Haditch and not Mezibuzh?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

1) if you wanna stay right in Jewish community there is a Jewish hotel called podol inn with a restaurant on site
http://www.podol-inn.com/en

2) there are usually drivers in airport. It should not cost to much.

3) don't think you need a guide in Kiev most drivers know all the basic Jewish sites, and I don't think there is muck in Kiev...

4) leaving from kiev to "medzhybizh" and stopping in "berdychiv" should not add more than half hour to your trip.

I would go from "Kiev" to "Annopol" to "Medzhybizh" to Berdychiv" to "Niezyn" to "Hadyach"
These are the correct spellings for google maps if you wanna look for yourself.

Why shabbos in Haditch and not Mezibuzh?
Two reasons:
Mezhibuzh has no room that shabbos
and I am Lubavitch

Two more questions- Does anyone have the contact information for Hadyach (Haditch) and how to reserve a room to sleep at the hachnosas orchim near the ohel?
Also, does anyone know of reliable drivers who are well priced for taking people around Ukraine?

Is it worth contacting Uman Express and taking them to some of the kevorim? Are they cheaper?

I don't think it's worth it if a driver is so cheap there, and they drive like meshiguim, so I would be scared to drive there.
Especially that it takes hours to get to each place, you might as well sleep in the back.

We rented from שפיעכעלע a van, it was a luxury VIP van, it felt like business class, I don't remember the cost.

You may get harassed by the police for money.

Does anyone know of the other company that drives vans from the airport to mekoimos hakedoshim besides Uman Express?
Is it cheaper to use Uman Express or the other company?

Will they go to other places such as hadiach, hanipoli, neizihn, or is it cheaper and smarter to take a driver?

Any recommendations?
