During Kongo’s recent visit to Kiev and the Ukraine, he took the time to engage a dedicated professional tour guide and it was one of the smartest things he’s done.  When you visit a new place for the first time and you don’t have a lot of time there is no better way to gain insights into the culture, local perspective, and the best attractions to see.  Kongo had two full days of meetings that included business dinners in the evenings with local customers and partners.  There was no time to actually get out and see anything other than the inside of an office building or restaurant.  Setting aside a day to tour turned out to be the only way Kongo could see what he wanted to see.
