Alex is an AWESOME guide! He is fun, energetic, and he enjoys people. I knew it was going to be a great day right when we met. You expect a guide to be know their history, but Alex has an EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE OF HISTORY and a passion for it that leaps out of him as he describes things and informs you. Spending 20 years on a Russian sub gives him insights and stories other guides would love to hear. His English is great and he is very flexible. I look forward to my next tour with my new friend Alex. Thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, John. I'll be happy to see you in Crimea again!

Alex provided a great tour -- he has extensive local knowledge, a great sense of humor, flexibility, and a real interest in helping us learn about Crimea. In particular, visiting the Balaclava submarine tunnels with him was fascinating. He was responsive to our requests and took us to locations that are outside the usual itinerary but still very interesting. We would thoroughly recommend taking a tour with him, and I have already recommended his services to family and friends.

Alex took us to the former Soviet Sub Base for a wonderful guided tour (he is a former Sub officer)plus all the very interesting sights in Sevastopol. My only regret is we did not have more time to explore more with him. Very highly recommended.

Alexander did an outstanding job. His extensive knowledge as well as personal experience added so much to our trip. We would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jerome. It was not enough time to show you everything that I wanted to show in Sevastopol. Hope to see your charming group in Sevastopol again.

His knowledge and preparation were excellent, his cheerful demeanor was very much appreciated. His military background allowed him to give us special insights into the Sevastopol military history. Good tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Carol. I'd like you spend more time here to show you more interesting places in Crimea! Good luck!
Were very happy with tour and would highly recommend Alexander.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad to hear you are happy with the tour, though it was Monday and some museums were closed. I will be happy to show them to you during your next visit to Sevastopol :)

This is one of the best tours we have ever taken! Who better to tell you the history of this city with its hidden submarine base, than a retired Russian navy man? Alex was funny, knowlegeable, and his English was excellent. Highly recommend him as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. It was pleasant for me to spend time together with your group. I wish to see you in my favorite city again and to show you sightseeing that you didn’t visit last time as your visit was too short.
