My name is Ralph Sarmiento, and I recently flew into Odessa from Texas. I required a driver to take me to NIKOLAEV since I am not familiar with the area. My driver was on time, and he provided professional service to my hotel. I will definitely use your service again.

I discovered GoToNikolaev from an internet search and I am very pleased that I did. The company responded quickly to every question I had. The company car and driver were waiting for me when I got off the plane in Odessa. The drive to the apartment I rented took about two hours. The apartment was exactly as described on the GoToNikolaev web site and in the video. When it came time to pick me up for the drive back to the Odessa airport, the driver arrived exactly on time. He was so prompt I could have set my watch by him! I recommend GoToNikolaev to anyone who needs a ride to or from Odessa airport or an apartment in Nikolaev or all three, as I did.
