My name is Robert Johnson. I just got back home from group tour to Odessa (sept. 16-sept. 27). I had a great time but the reason I'm writing to you today is to praise your personnel in the Odessa office. Specifically, I'm referring to Maxim and his mother Anna. I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly helpful they both were for myself and everyone else on the tour. Case in point...I met "the triplets" (minus one who recently got married, so it was really just "the twins") in Kherson. I invited them back to Odessa for the remainder of the tour. As it turns out, the third sister lives in Odessa. So, I'm with three incredibly beautiful women in Odessa, who speak almost no English, and I speak even less Russian....yet, Maxim joins me as a hired interpreter for 5 hours of walking tours and shopping with the ladies. I think we were both exhausted from being led by 3 women shopping all day long. I know I was. So, Maxim helps me buy dresses and shoes for the ladies for that evening's dinner a couple of hours later. Maxim lent me a Russian-English dictionary to help my communication over dinner. However, the ladies insisted that Maxim join us that evening, as well. Maxim then joins us for dinner as interpreter for what turned out to be another 4 hours. I cannot begin to sing his praises for going beyond "the call of duty" to help me with the "triplets". I hope to build on a relationship with the one sister (Lubov) and would ask her hand in marriage if things go as well on my next trip as they went on this one. None of this could've been possible without Maxim's help and dedication. I kept him running around for 9 hours that final day (friday, sept. 25) in Odessa, and I would've been completely lost without his help.
Needless to say, over the course of the trip, Maxim and I became great friends. As it turns out, my hometown of Baltimore, is Odessa's 'sister city', so we had lots in common from the beginning.
Anyway, I just wanted you to know that both Maxim and Anna were both incredibly helpful and that you have the Odessa office in good hands.
RobertJ, I am really glad to hear you had a fun time on your trip. Having a trustworthy translator is a must on dating tours. Twins!? how lucky...
For other people thinking about going on a romance tour, I would highly recommend NOT taking your dates shopping as an activity. Unfortunately, some of these women are only trying to have a better life situation not find true love. Taking your date shopping, especially early in your relationship, will start things off on the wrong foot. You are not there to show how much money you can give her. Obviously, buying a boquet of flowers is acceptable, but that is very different than taking a date shopping and buying her all kinds of gifts right away. She could end up liking you for the wrong reasons.
What company did you travel with RobertJ? I have been researching as many of them as i can find and there are just a few reallylegit sites.
