Our three half day tours in Yalta, Sevestapol and Odessa were just what we were looking for. Your guides were wonderful. Their mastery of English as well as their knowledge were superb. The vehicles were comfortable. I will be sure to recommend you to any of my friends who will be traveling to the Ukraine. Thanks again for 3 perfect tours.
