We had asked the tourist Information Office nearby if they knew about this organization and the... More

I waited for a long time next to Duke's monument. I checked with several locals and nobody knew about this alleged "free tour". Perhaps they don't offer them in October? I was very disappointed since I wasted a lot of time. Odessa is a beautiful city but be warned, very few people speak English and everything is written in Cyrillic... More

We were in Odessa on October 12 with our printout about the Odessa free tours. We rushed to get to the Odessa Duke monument at the top of the Potemkin steps, and we waited but no one from "free tours" arrived. We were very disappointed.

Great way to get an overview of Odessa in two hours. The tour guide was interesting and helpful. The office also rents nice bikes at a decent rate. I was overall disappointed in Odessa but glad I did this tour which was surely the highlight...

Free tour was our first experience. We came back for more. Natasha and Sergei were great guides. A nice way to see a lot without a gaggle. Super friendly staff, thank you Ekaterina!

Odessa is a city & port on the Black Sea. There's the beach, elegant boulevards, restaurants & bars, parks, architecture & museums. This free walking takes all of these, as well as learning the fascinating history of Odessa. We met at the top of the Potempkin Steps, our guide took us around all the sights, we also visited the city... More
