The Small Canyon of the Crimea stretches along the Black River for 12 km. Full flowing river changes to quiet backwaters along the way. River ledges, rapids and waterfalls take turns with flood plains encasing small rocky islands and shadowy banks. Open spots on the banks are covered with old Crimean junipers, shadowy beech trees shelter green ferns. When sunny, the fast waters of the Black River splash over heated rubbles, with rainbows glittering over them. There are plenty of safe deep baths in the canyon, and the water in these “tubs” is warmer than in the Grand Canyon. Though beware of the flow, the Black River is the fastest in the Crimea. Summer warm months are good time for hiking in the canyon. Hikes without a guide are not safe in the Small Canyon due to abundance of various trails, some of which may appear to be either quite challenging or undoable.
My wife and I had paid for two train tickets from Kiev to Kharkov through your agency and arranged for pick up in Borispol airport. When we missed our connecting flight and arrived 2 hours late, our plans were in complete disarray. How pleased we were to see Victor Fedosyuk in the terminal, holding a yellow sign reading "James Davis" in his hand, almost 2.5 hours after our scheduled arrival!
Victor was friendly and professional. My wife and I would like to thank your agency for your great service.
