In choosing an agency, be sure to browse the colorful, informative web sites of Ukrainian travel services. Even if you're not going to Ukraine, these make enjoyable reading for armchair travelers. Listing here is not necessarily an endorsement,since I'm not personally familiar with many of them. However, travel services in Ukraine are not likely to disappoint you. Or, skip down to travel agencies based in the U.S., Canada and Great Britain that specialize in Ukraine. These have very close ties to Ukraine or partners based there.
Many travel agencies located in Ukraine will work directly with you in planning your trip, booking lodging, arranging in-country transportation, and providing guides and special tours. However, they're not able to book your air transportation TO Ukraine.
