    I went with my girlfriend on this tour. We enjoyed it very much. During the trip from Odessa to the Dnieper the guide told us interesting facts about Odessa. The guide spoke good English. Than we had a beautiful tour with a fast boat on the Dnieper Delta with Anatoliy who knew a lot about the nature here, and the specific animals and plants in this yet undiscovered but beautiful nature of Ukraine. Anatoliy was very hospitable and we had a great time with him. We lunched on a beautiful place next to the river and had homemade food. All in all I would like to recommend this tour.
