Included in the following tours:
 
On the Black Sea shore in the outskirts of modern Sevastopol, the ruins of the ancient polis of Tauric Chersonesos steadily attract scholars from around the world. There is still much room left for the scientific exploration, and lots of fascinating sites to see for general public visitors. Discovered in 1935, the Chersonesos white marble Basilica columns rising at the sea background have become a drawing card of the National preserve, a symbol of the “Ukrainian Pompeii”. Depicted on the Ukrainian 1 hryvna banknotes, the columns address to baptizing of Volodymyr the Great in Chersonesos of the Byzantine epoch.
Ongoing excavation and research works kept unveiling layer after layer the glorious history of the place that had been founded almost two and a half millennium ago. Having had started from the small Dorian settlement somewhere in the 6th century BC, the polis of Tauric Chersonesos has lived a two millennium long life with numbered moments of glory, centuries of prosperity and wellbeing.

Hello Ramila, my trip was wonderful. Except for a small misunderstanding on a payment on my first day, everything was smooth.

I continue to be amazed at the professionalism of your guides. I hope you will tell "Vlada", "Alina" and "Igor" thank you for making my trip memorable. Igor especially went above and beyond the call of duty. He is a superb guide and you do not want to lose him. I hope I will be able to meet him again.

I may return to Kamyanets again next year for personal reasons. I will need help with hotel reservations, pick up at the airport, and train tickets.

This has been my 4th trip to the Ukraine and it now feels like my second home. All I need now is a Ukrainian wife!!!!!!

Thank you again for your excellent service,

Daniel Razo, USA
