This tour was great. Mistakenly booked one day late and miraculously they accommodated me. So glad that I did not disappoint 10 people. We went to the Odessa catacombs. It was a comfortable air condition ride from the Arkadia district. Our guide was very knowledgeable... recommended !
This was an excellent tour, which far exceeded my expectations. Larissa, my guide, was very informative and very good company, and added enormously to my enjoyment of the visit.
