Hello Olga, We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed spending the day with Julia. She was very kind to us and showed us a nice day. A beautiful city, nice weather, friendly people, a wonderful guide and driver: what more could we ask for. In the near future, I hope more tourists are able to take advantage of visiting Odessa.
