We would like to thank you so much for making our two days in Yalta and Sevastopol so interesting and enjoyable. You were a delight to be with - your enthusiasm, knowledge and love of your homeland's history ensured we gained the most out of our short time in the Ukraine.
Thank you so much for being so kind and sensitive to our discomfort in the sweltering temperatures - despite the heat we were able to thoroughly enjoy and learn so much from you.
Thanks once again,
Very many thanks for a really wonderful day. You were a excellent guide and we enjoyed all your company...
We are back home from the cruise and we want to thank you for the very intressting day we had in Yalta. You are an excellent and enjoyable guide. Your knowledge of the history of Yalta is amazing and we have learned so much of wonderful Yalta. We hope to see you again in the future...

Sergey organised a private trip for us in Autumn 2012. Our cruise ship was only in Yalta for one day, and was too large to dock in Sebastopol (which we had especially wanted to visit). He met
us at the dock gates in Yalta at 8.15am, exactly as arranged, and returned us in good time to catch our ship later that same afternoon.
We were able to see all the sights on our itinerary in Yalta, Balaklava and Sebastopol (we walked quickly, and didn't stop for lunch!!).
His English is very good, and he was very attentive to all our needs and requirements. He was also prepared to be flexible when the occasion demanded it.
He was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited, and made a real effort to ensure that we appreciated the historical and cultural significance of each of the locations at which we stopped.
He proved to be an excellent ambassador for his country, proud and knowledgeable about his Ukrainian heritage, and an enthusiastic advocate for the Ukrainian way of life.
We would have no hesitation in recommending him as a sightseeing tour guide (we are native English speakers, in our 60's).
