Odessa: Private Walking Tour through Palaces
- Duration: 2.5 hours
- Private group
Our two person’s private guided 5 hours Odessa tour by Yuriy Bocharev. Guided by excellent English and bilingually in Russian to my Ukrainian friend. He had an excellent knowledge of Odessa’s history from ancient times until today. I guess that we had a comprehensive walking tour through all-important places in the Centre of Odessa. He knows very well history of buildings, monuments and statues. He had bunch of some posters with him, which helped lot of understanding of changes made over the centuries. It was also very car tour through of suburban area to a spa and recreational facilities of the Black Sea shore. I would like to give an extra bonus for Yuriy, because he had a high quality camera with him. He was also very professional photographer, which gave us very nice freedom just to enjoy looking sightseeing. As a couple, my friend and I have now an excellent collection of lovely photos. Our warmest thanks to Yuriev from his effort by sending photos, and memorable tour guidance
... just came back from the trip. . Perfect organization - thanks for supporting despite of difficult situation with CoronaVirus ... (March 2020) Everything was more than expected. We are really inspired about the chain of supporting people. ...Olga from http://greentourua.com/ who organized everything, our driver Żenia from Odessa, local driver in Nadniestrze (Tiaspol citizen who had to wake up at 4.30 a.m to wait for us in Odessa morning), Katia (perfect Tiraspol introduction and visiting + nice English) and finally Adriej who takes us from Nadniestrze border and show us Bendery City... very professional and helpful guy - what's more his English was perfect and his knowledge about history and current situation is on professional level ++++ ... Even if Nadniestrze seems be crazy place for majority people (personally we like it very much but we understand that not everybody can like this) again many thanx for perfect organization, support and finding solution for all cases
I went with my girlfriend on this tour. We enjoyed it very much. During the trip from Odessa to the Dnieper the guide told us interesting facts about Odessa. The guide spoke good English. Than we had a beautiful tour with a fast boat on the Dnieper Delta with Anatoliy who knew a lot about the nature here, and the specific animals and plants in this yet undiscovered but beautiful nature of Ukraine. Anatoliy was very hospitable and we had a great time with him. We lunched on a beautiful place next to the river and had homemade food. All in all I would like to recommend this tour.
Everyone should see this site. The tour guide makes it very easy. We were met pier side by the guide at the appointed hour. He drove us there and explained the history of Yalta along the way. At the destination, he led us through the tunnels, explained the significance of each display, told us some anecdotal stories of the partisans, and then guided us through the resistance museum. It was very informative and interesting. The guide brought us back to the ship.
Natasha was very knowledgeable about this city. I loved the stories, gossips and personal anecdotes. She really knows her history.
