What you'll do

A short and fun walk through and under the center of Odessa :)

ADVANTAGES OF THE TOUR - the city center, the museum will be opened ONLY FOR YOU, it is dry and fresh in the summer period!

I want to show you one of the main legends of Odessa - the famous Odessa Catacombs.

We will go down to the oldest catacomb in Odessa. And although it is located in the very center of the city, it is not so easy to find it on your own.

This is a small underground mine at the beginning of the 19th century and the tour will be interesting, but not scary and not tiring. We will dive to a depth of 10 meters below the city level, and will pass about 120 meters underground labyrinths. The underground tour will last about 40 minutes.

Hello! My name is Yuri.

I conduct tours of the city and the surrounding area with my car. Therefore, we are not dependent on wet winter weather!

I have a guide license and have been doing individual excursions in Odessa for ten years.

I love my city and love to show the beauty and charm of Odessa to its guests.

Where you'll be

We will start in the city center, near the famous Odessa Opera.
Let's see the courtyard, built in the Italian style, and then the "ordinary" Odessa courtyards.
And there will be a surprise - through the old garage we will go down to a real underground museum.

We will finish our walking tour near Odessa Philharmonic Theatre.

1. Во-первых это Экскурсия не только по катакомбам- до этого мы немного прогулялись по дворикам( в которые я бы в жизни не попала сама) и улицам и я получила кучу новой интересной информации, благодаря которой город стал роднее. 2. Во-вторых катакомбы сейчас- это в том числе и музей с экспонатами , а в музее не очень интересно, если тебе не расскажут что, как и почему здесь находится. Я бы не была ими так впечатлена без историй Юриных об экспонатах и самих катакомбах. 3. После экскурсии Юрий мне посоветовал и даже проводил в один из самых аутентичных для меня кафе в городе не далеко от катакомб! там готовят традиционное блюдо одессы так, как вы больше нигде вы не увидите;) 4. Не было вопроса у меня на который Юрий не знает ответа- это удивительно! Как можно так много всего знать и при этом так не занудно рассказывать?? 5. Юрий был очень добр и даже зашёл со мной на привоз, где провёл по лучшим точкам :) и посоветовал ещё кучу съестных заведений. 6. Я считаю что мои дни на Юриных экскурсиях сделали прекрасную Одессу ещё более прекрасной для меня! Всем советую сделать именно как я- гастротур от Юры, заием катакомбы. Лучшие способы узнать настоящий город во всем его многообразии!

Очень впечатляющая экскурсия в катакомбы в самом сердце Одессы, о которых я ничего не знала. Прекрасный гид, который знает и любит свой прекрасный город. Советую побывать на его экскурсиях!
