YAPC::Europe 2013 Partners Programme

Today we are announcing the Partners Progamme for the YAPC::Europe 2013 conference in Kiev. We've been talking about it before but finally we've got a rough schedule and are awaiting for your feedback.

The Partner Programme is for everyone travelling together with a conference attendee and not very insterested in attending the event. Instead of sitting at the hotel or walking along the city alone one has a wonderful opportunity to join the company of other guests and enjoy Kiev with our experienced guide.

Our guide is our friend Oksana Tsupko, a certified ukrainian tour guide. You can visit her website for more information. Quoting her:

...the most desirable thing for the most of tourists is to feel and see real life and spirit of a country, but not only to watch "must see places" with endless group excursions... One of my prior tasks is to create sincere friendly atmosphere in relations with my tourist guests. And from this friendship our great trip begins!...

The Programme itself is free, you pay for your the transportation, tickets and food.
