Transportation

Walking

What’s Included

Other: My time, knowledge, and local expertise
Free photos (I'll have a camera with me)

Estimated Local Cash Needed

2 hryvnya - From October 2011 the funicular (to go up the Potyomkin stairs) is not free anymore. It now costs 2 hryvnyas (about 25 US cents). You will need to have this amount in the local currency on you, to pay for the group plus the guide. If the price changes, I will notify you.

I have drives who drive cars, little mini-cabs, mini-cabs and large tourist buses, so we are able to serve from 1 to 45 tourists on any given tour. Check my profile for the photos of the vehicles.
