I recently utilized your services back in November of 2014. I rented Apt 101 from you and also utilized your transfer services from Odessa to Nikolaev and back to Odessa on my departure. I would like to say that the services were OUTSTANDING! I was a little nervous about it all, but you took care of everything and it all went perfect. The driver was on time at the airport and the apartment was exactly as advertised. Very clean and neat, and definitely cozy! If I needed anything or had and problems, I called my transfer driver and he helped me with what I needed. I would highly recommend your services to anyone who is thinking of traveling to Ukraine. In fact, I am planning a return trip to spend more time with my girl, and I will be using your services again! I would also like to add that I have also used your sister company's services for flowers and gifts as well. Again very reasonable prices and exceptional services! You and your team are running a trustworthy company there and it really makes things easier and more relaxed in a long distance relationship! Thank you so much for your services and your help! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! See you again real soon.

Dmitry provided an excellent rental in downtown Nikolaev, Ukraine. I was provided with a laptop and internet access as well as a television with cable. The location was within walking distance to all of the major attractions, and he also provided transportation to and from the airport in Odessa. I would recommend him and his company to anyone traveling to this area.
