Private guide Valeriy (German, English)
Mein Name ist Walerij. Ich wurde in der Stadt Jalta, auf der Halbinsel Krim geboren.
Als ein krimischer Mann kann ich sehr viel ueber die Krim erzaehlen aber es gibt eine alte krimische Legende, die kurz aber sehr genau ueber die Krim erzaehlt. Sag-mal, ob du schon mal auf der Krim warst? Dort gibt es alles: es gibt das Meer, und die Steppe gibt es auch. Wenn du den Berg aufsteigst, dann verstehst du, dass der Mensch, der hier noch niemals war, sehr viel in seinem Leben verloren hat. Es ist so schoen dort. Hinter dem Berg leben das Meer und der Himmel zusammen, die beiden sind blau. Die krimischen Leute lieben ihr Land sehr. Wo der krimische Mensch nur sei, wuerde er unbedingt sagen; es gibt kein schoenes Land als die Krim. So ist unsere Krim. Lebe nur, sterben sollst du nicht... (eine alte krimische Legende). Und hier moechte ich noch ein Paar Woerte ueber mich schreiben. 1997-2000 habe ich in Deutschland gelebt und studiert.Ich habe in der Bundesschule fuer Heizungs und Sanitaertechniker in Karlsruhe studiert.

Private guide Olya (English, French)
Hello, I`m Olga. I was born in Sevastopol, Crimea, and the more I live here, the more I fall in love with this amazingly beautiful, diverse, historical spot caressed by the warm Black Sea. Working as a guide I imagine myself to be the eyes of our guests who come to explore this little world of Crimea for the first time and through my vision of it they make up their own positive impression. Sevastopol, Yalta, Balaklava and Bakhchisaray are my favorite destinations. Join me in this captivating journey through the glorious battlefields of the Crimean War, via architecturally sophisticated palaces, along dramatic, breathtaking cliffs washed by the sea!
