For hundreds of years southern Ukraine has been bordering the lands of the Ukrainian Cossacks and those of the Crimean Tatars (a Turkish ethnic group) resembling a "wild-west" no man's land. Odessa, the Black Sea's gateway to Ukraine is a combination of diverse landscapes and is the country’s biggest commercial Black Sea port. The city is a crossroads of cultures, languages and trade. Explore the old city center with private vehicle and English speaking guide. Discover the Catacombs, the place where the Romanian army was hidden during the Second World War and large enough to keep food and weapons for half a year. Learn more about the history of the area by visiting the local Archaeological Museum. You may choose to extend your stay with a tour to the Danube Delta and enjoy a traditional lunch with fresh-caught fish or discover another area of Eastern or central Europe. ... Show More »

Day 2: Odessa

Enjoy a half day tour of Odessa with a private vehicle and guide. During the tour you will view the Odessa National Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet, with a drive through some of the most important boulevards in the city. Continue your tour with a visit to the Odessa Art Museum which was established in 1899, in a palace designed by architect Franz Boffo. The collection reflects the history of painting from the old Russian icons, classical art and works by contemporary Odessa artists, showcasing the development in both the realistic and avant-garde trends. The museum is located in the center of Odessa and has an underground grotto which is open for visitors. The entrance fees to the museum are included in the tour cost.

Enjoy a half day tour of the catacombs in Odessa which appeared as a result of the extraction of the limestone used for the construction of the city. In times past, the catacombs gave shelter to the homeless, to those who were in hiding and pursued, and to the thieves and smugglers. They are mostly known for the use that the partisan movement in Odessa made of them during World War II. When the German and Romanian army occupied Odessa during the war, the Soviet Military headquarters gave the order to organize the partisan resistance. The partisan unit was fighting with the Nazi and Romanian army during the period of occupation. You'll walk in underground tunnels, where conditions of a partisan camp are reconstructed and where you will hear all about the history of the struggle. At the end of the tour you will be brought back to your hotel.

  • Vanessa Oquendo — April 21, 2014 — Europe

    Melissa Field was extremely helpful! She was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! She kept me updated on the status of everything and provided timely correspondence. She took ownership for any problems I had and remedied them. I had the most amazing time of my life in Iceland and Paris! I would not have experienced everything without the help of Kensington Tours.

  • Marilynn Weaver — April 21, 2014 — Europe

    All of our guides were beyond fabulous! Our time in Dublin was much too short, would have loved to stay there at least one more full day. Would recommend extending this package to 15 days for any future visits. The train to Edinburgh was super! Beautiful scenery and great steak pies!

  • Ann Saxon — November 06, 2013 — Europe

    Our trip was fantastic!!! I cannot say enough good things. Lianne worked with our exact dates and time frame beautifully.Our drivers were prompt and friendly. The private guides were so knowledgeable. We left with an appreciation of the history, the culture, and the beauty of Andulasia. We were very pleased and will certainly recommend your company to friends and family.

  • Coby Scherr — November 05, 2013 — Europe

    Everyone involved in our Portugal trip made it terrific. Exactly as advertised. Every event on time and most pleasant. Guides were well-informed, courteous and friendly. Really made for a great journey every time. Each hotel was clean, upgraded and staffed with knowledgeable and friendly folks. Breakfasts were complete -- almost too much to eat. It will always be a wonderful memory thanks to Kensington Tours.

  • Couples Dellinger & Hubbell — November 06, 2013 — Europe

    We've been raving to everyone about the food, the friendliness of the people and the amazing history and sites in Turkey. Yes, we want to go back.

  • John Edstrom — October 22, 2013 — Europe

    Overall, our tour in Spain was very enjoyable, and well planned and executed. Our private tour of the Alhambra was excellent. Virginia, tour guide for royal palace ruins outside of Cordoba, was also excellent. In Seville, we went to the Flamenco Show/dinner, and the Flamenco was outstanding!

  • Kevin Wilshere — October 19, 2013 — Europe

    Great trip to Spain! Thanks again for all your help, Lianne. The destinations, hotels, guides and everything were all top notch.

  • Chery Westlund — November 07, 2013 — Europe

    My husband and I took a 3 week vacation to southern Europe and North Africa and had a great time. All the guides were very knowledgeable and bent over backwards to accommodate us. The arrangements made by Kensington went off without a hitch. This is our second trip with Kensington (we went to Peru in 2009) and we will certainly book with them again.

  • Randy Gramlich — October 07, 2013 — Europe

    Thank you for your follow up, we both loved our time in Croatia. It’s really a beautiful place, especially the coast. Your choice of hotels was great. It was an incredible view from the Bellevue hotel in Dubrovnik and the Vestibule in Split was in the best possible location. We were able to relax in our room listening to the wonderful singers in the courtyard and its central location made it so easy to walk anywhere we wanted to see with ease.

  • Jay Steffan — September 24, 2013 — Europe

    We just returned from a 10 day trip to Paris and Normandy. We spent three nights in Paris and then enjoyed a seven night cruise on the Seine to Normandy with AMA Waterways. The time in Paris was well spent and has piqued our interest to return for a more thorough visit. Guide Wafaa Lankey was superb in our visit to Versailles. The Seine cruise was relaxing and beautiful. So many wonderful little towns and we wished we had more time in each one to explore and enjoy.

    We traveled to Croatia and Slovenia using Kensington earlier this year which was a fantastic trip.
