Odessa Walking tour and Archeological Museum
This tour is the same as my walking tour plus Odessa Archeological Museum. I know that you hear the word "museum", you think about something boring and tedious, that you must do just because it has to be done. Odessa Archeological Museum is different. Prepare to be shocked. You will do things so outrageous, yet legal, that your relations back at home and your fellow travellers won't know you. After the visit, you will become a changed person. I can't tell you more know. Besides this, we will learn to find a treasure, will find a golden treasure, guarded by a she-dragon, and will visit an Egyptian lady, who is several thousand years old and is a tourist in this city, too. And, learn how not to pay sales taxes. Other sites we will visit include the Primorski boulevard, the
remnants of Russian-Crimean war, city hall, the Opera house, Wax museum (outside only), Deribasovskaya street, City Garden, the Passage, Sobornaya square, Saint Transfiguration cathedral.
We will see the Potyomkin stairs from below and from the top. At the top, encounter the founder of Odessa, Duc de Richelieu.
Then - Mother-in-law bridge with the magnificent view of the harbour, Palace of Shah, House with Atlases, Primorski boulevard with an open archeological site, the remnants of Russian-Crimean war, town hall. Archeologically outrageous museum. Opera house, Wax museum (outside only), main street - Deribasovskaya (pedestrians-only zone), City Garden, with statues and fountains, Passage - an architectural wonder with boutiques, Sobornaya square, St. Transfiguration cathedral and an extensive shopping area for souvenirs (allotted special time). At the end, I can direct you to a price-friendly restaurant where you can taste genuine Ukrainian everyday cuisine and drinks and enjoy the magnificent aerial view of Odessa. It's a photo tour, you'll get free photos.

Natacha fit well with our foursome. She shared wonderful stories of Odessa and took us to places where no tour was scheduled to go. We had a truly personal guide who cared about how we saw Odessa. We walked the city; visited monuments, a museum and an awesome gold collection; saw a wedding and visited the Opera House. Our tour ended with lunch at a VERY local spot in town. Natacha speaks very quietly and is difficult to hear at times. Just remind her to speak up. She has much to tell. Thank you
