Odessa catacombs tour


Odessa catacombs are more than 2,500 kilometers of mysterious underground passages, tunnels and caves. They are five times longer than the famous Parisian catacombs and it is very easy to get lost there if you haven’t got an experienced guide.

Most of the catacombs appeared as a result of the 19th century limestone mining. However, ancient Greeks made their underground wine vaults there many centuries before. Moreover, the remains of prehistoric animals were found in some caves.

For many years the Odessa catacombs served as a refuge and hiding places for adventurers, bandits and partisans. Therefore, weapons, money and jewelry can be still found there at times.

Perhaps our Odessa catacombs tour will bring you luck too!

We did the beer tour in Kiev. Five beers in five different bars for two of us and our guide. That was a great chance to hang out with some locals, get to know the history and city a bit more, all while enjoying some of the unique local beers you can only find in Kiev. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company and we had a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend taking a tour with Wonders & Holidays. I learned so much about Ukrainian history that I wouldn't have on my own and the tour guides feel like friends (rather than just guides). I went on the Kiev in 180 minutes sightseeing tour with Igor and it was such a great experience. He was an excellent guide not only did he explain the history so well, but also answered any related or unrelated questions about Kiev and Ukraine. Both Igor and our driver Gestutas were so personable, accommodating, kind and professional - I hope I get the chance to go back again to take another tour with them.
