I rented a flat through "gotonikolaev" for my last trip there in April 2013. I sent in my rental request which they quickly replied to the next day. However, two days before I left, I wanted to add four more days to my rental and I had to change the arrival and departure times to and from Nikolayev. This was handled very professionally and taken care of very quickly. I was very satisfied with Dmitry and his company who quickly handled all the changes I made. They also offer the most reasonable round trip transfers to and from Odessa to Nikolayev.

Very professional, courteous, patient, friendly and helpful! VADIM went out of his way to assist in the purchase of a local prepaid SIM card when I could not speak the language, which I was extremely grateful for. I would definitely use your taxi service in the future and would recommend it to anyone.
