This walking tour of the elegant city of Odesa takes in the grand, the classical, the sublime and the quirky elements of this most scenic, still historically young city. The young guide belies her age with a comprehensive knowledge of all facets of the history, architecture, contemporary and the politics at play. The best feature was probably the view of quiet inner courtyards and entrance ways, little changed in hundreds of years. Rich with old wells, stables, spiral staircases, festooning vines and myriad, curious cats!. An important aspect of Odessan city life that a cursory tourist walk will unlikely see on their own. Very enjoyable and a great introduction to this vibrant pearl on the Black Sea,... thanks to Natalia and her elegant, eclectic Odesa!!
This has been an amazing trip into life in Odessa, I got insight not only of its rich past but of its living and breathing modern rhythm as well. I fell in love with the stories Natlia told and all the wonderful places she showed. Her knowledge in different areas such as literature, history and culture is deep and rich and she presents information in a truly fascinating way in excellent English. It was important for me to feel the vibe of the city and get off the beaten track and all the tourist traps and it was definitely a mission accomplished. Of course I saw all the important landmarks but there were also some secret hidden gems that I was shown. Definitely a tour to recommend and an unforgettable experience to cherish.
With only a few days to spend in Odessa on this trip, the private guided half-day tour was a perfect way to see and learn as much as possible in a short amount of time. Four hours is plenty of time to see central Odessa and get a solid introduction to the town and its history. The guide is catered to your own interests, and so there's flexibility to what you see and do. Highly recommend this for anyone who wants to get a taste of the city and its history.
My guide was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with, she was very knowledgeable about Odessa and was just generally a nice person to hang with. Thanks Natalia!
It was very nice for me to walk around the points of the city with the sophisticated guide. I recommend it for all who came to Odessa first time.
