Went on a DC tour this year (2017)
Arrived and was met at the Airport, driver was on his phone constantly and this was a safety concern for me. I payed a lot of money and traveled a long way. TO be involved in a traffic accident would have ruined my vacation. Safety should be paramount.
Accommodation was 21/2 Star at best!
Bus transfer from Odessa was terrible, exhaust fumes were coming into the rear of the bus where I was sitting. No air conditioning and felt sick from heat and fumes.
When I complained it was stated that this was the only bus available?
No shortage of women who wanted to go on a "date" naturally as they get flowers chocolates dinner and entertainment. I did have some great dates but that was because it was all in fun no serious contenders.
I meet 2 women who were what I was looking for, One was just after as much as she could get and picked EXPENSIVE places every time. Lunch was $60 USD! Dinner was always double that.
I suggested bowling and other activities but NOT interested. She always had Steak and Seafood. Also I felt she KNEW some of the staff at the restaurants we were going to.
That went south very quickly!
There was no free time to explore the city and it seems that DC does not want you to freelance or explore on your own, I have traveled extensively and do not require BABYSITTING.
So it is way more expensive than portrayed in the videos.
Overall disappointed in this tour. 80% seems to be an exaggeration most men on my tour went away without any success.
Others were just plain ripped off by some of the women.
Translator was Excellent
Met a great bunch of men
Will be going to Ukraine again as it is a good place to visit.
