This tour is not properly named, no fault of the guide. It is NOT a walking tour through palaces. Most of the palaces in Odessa are museums/libraries, hotels or private. The others are all closed under renovation. This was a long walk seeing the outside of Odessa architecture. Since we did a morning walking tour with our guide (Natasha), this was an unnecessary extension of that tour. Just another way to do a walking tour.
