1 review of "Southern Adventures in Ukraine"

  1. My husband, daughter and I had the opportunity to use the services of JC Travel Ukraine in September of this year. I had found the company’s website earlier in the year and through a series of emails our time together was planned out. I had some ideas of the sights we might like to see in Odessa and Crimea. Julia based the itinerary around this, but with her local knowledge added other fascinating places to them. Julia and Alex toured us through many places, interpreted for us, arranged our accommodation to suit us and taught us a lot about both historic and modern Ukraine. I recommend JC Travel highly.
