  • Notes:

    The political situation in Ukraine continues to be unpredictable and potentially volatile. Crimea remains extremely tense and public protests continue in and around Kyiv. Based on advice from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and in the interest of traveller safety we have regrettably made the decision to cancel all tours to Ukraine until 15th June 2014. We hope that post-election (scheduled for 25th May) the situation in Ukraine will become clearer and will reassess at this time when it is safe to return.
