    Meet your guide at the reception of your hotel and set off on a fascinating tour. You may know that Odessa is a wonderful seashore city with palaces, parks, theatres and boulevards... However, we assure you - it's not a main thing about Odessa! The greatest treasure of this city is its inhabitants, and the best way to feel the spirit of Odessa is to visit the city’s courtyards.
    You will be intrigued and irrevocably charmed! Your guide will tell so many fun stories that you'll try to note some jokes and phrases for retelling to your friends. You will discover some strange objects that will compel you to be infinitely amazed at human ingenuity and shrewdness. You will make sure, that there is no such city like Odessa anywhere on Earth!
    Accompanied by an expert guide, you will visit the chic central yards of Pale-Royal Square and Italian Patio and have a look behind the curtain of parade facades of the central streets. Then, you will explore some old secluded yards – so original and so unlike to each other. Moreover, you will roam on the nooks of frightful and romantic Moldavanka district, which was a motherland of the legendary Odessa swindlers and gangsters.
    During this tour, you have a unique chance to observe the everyday life of the local people: how they dry their linen outside, just two steps away from the center of city; how housewives tittle-tattle, hanging out of the windows. You will see peculiar features of Odessa mode of life: unthinkable stairs with short stairwells, balconies and galleries, artistically twirled electric wires, hanging on a wall nails, individual mailboxes of various sizes and forms.
    In addition to these wonders, your guide will tell you million stories and anecdotes and will acquaint you with the unique Odessa language, which cannot be learned, but is understandable for everybody who has a sense of humor and a sharp mind.
    The tour ends with the drop-off at your hotel.
