Traveling to Ukraine with a travel guide

Hey world! I'm planning my first trip to Ukraine. Is it okay to travel alone or is it better to book a package tour? Would appreciate any suggestions!
Thanks

Which part of Ukraine? I would assume Kiev would be fine but some areas of country perhaps not?

I had no difficulty traveling in Ukraine on my own. Of course, that was in 2006 before the recent disasters. Still, Kiev and any areas to the west (aside from Crimea) should be fine. Do not miss Lviv.

I did use this company to book my train ticket from Simferapol to Odessa, and, I think, my hotel in Odessa:

I would really appreciate it if you could tell me professional travel guide. I don't want to have any bad experience or to worry about anything. Booking a package tour seems like a great idea!

Do you want a guide just for you or a package tour? There are a number of companies that offer package tours at various price points. E.g. Intrepid Travel at the lower end and MIR at the higher. A personal guide is unlikely to be cheap.

Thanks! I don't really like Interpid Travel because they overcharge and almost nothing is included in the tour. That's why I see no point in booking a package tour with Interpid Travel.

Then don't. There are plenty of other companies, I just used them as an example. I have traveled with them, although not recently, but I did not want a lot of hand holding.

You did not answer my question.
