    The locations were great and so were the guides. Accommodation was also good, especially as it was 3* Eastern European. Disappointed to only get a detailed itinerary very late in the day (just before we left the UK) and while it enabled us to see three major destinations, three overnight train rides was not what we were expecting.

    If you are into architecture, old buildings, and churches then Ukraine is the place to go. The tour guides and travel agents were great and understanding; they were flexible and will change the iternity to fit your need. This tour gives one insight to all aspects whether its business, cultural, seaport town-- it gives you all. Just be prepared that most people in Ukraine doesn't speak English and even their streets and store's name are in Ukraine.
