We will be stopping for a day at Odessa in Sept on a Cruise ship. We are leaving in 10 days. We opted for independent touring rather than the packaged shore excursion. Because we are specifically interested in the Jewish history of Odessa, (like some others of the forum writers) we contacted sources for Jewish tours, whose names we obtained on this forum many months ago. This has been an incredibly interesting experience: ie wild enthusiasm with promises of service, followed by dead silence comparable to the life in the tomb. No response to emails, no phone service or fax service that works, contrasted with richly detailed web sites that offer everything but an address.

This may turn out to be funny as they say when we look back on it, but I am still wondering about whether we should walk aimlessly (our walking stamina is not unlimited) or try for an English speaking guide and if so whom to trust.

Any insights would be welcome.

Thanks to any respondents,
Carol
