A million thanks to Tanya, Igor, and Feodor (in Kiev.) My trip to Odessa went exceptionally well, in large measure due to the efficient, flexible, and above all hospitable services of the Unipress BTD. They handled changes of schedule at the last minute very smoothly and provided transfer drivers who were punctual and friendly.
