In August of 1999, I contacted the friendly people at UNIPRESS for assistance in arranging my trip to the Ukraine. All arrangements were on very short notice, to include the visa. They were extremely knowledgeable, helpful, honest, and promptly handled all that they were asked to do. It was a pleasant experience in a country that is sometimes not so easy to deal with. Based on my experiences, I would recommend their services to any future visitors to the Ukraine.
