I just returned from my tour, thank you again for a wonderful job. This was my
2nd tour with Unipress, and it was even better than last year. I saw
everything I ask to see and the guides (Vlada)and (Nataliya) were outstanding.
There is so much to see but never enough time to see it all, I hope to return
again. Also special thanks to Konstantine, who drove me to the Odessa airport
to catch my return flight to Kiev. He did everything except walk me up the
steps of the plane.
Please let Vlada and Nataliya know how much I appreciated their skills.
You are an outstanding travel agency,

thank you again,

Daniel Razo United States July 2008
