I understand Del's point, and his relationship with R.J. I am not saying that the service is overpriced, not at all, I am saying that for this, the driver needs to at least help with bags etc. Every other time I've hired a taxi in Ukraine they have been helpful and provide better service.

And yes, I tried to get the best price on a ticket, I am not stupid.

And I believe it is you misguided about ticket prices. Like you Del, I have spent a lot of time on the trains, and the price is still 48 hyr., around $8 USD.

My post was in no way a personal insult toward Mr. Tomkins, but it is my right to state my opinion and experiences with his service so other travelers can make a decision on using his service, or others.

If anyone would like the true train prices I can email an actual ticket (copy) with the price from my last trip this spring.


just look at another site ( http://www.travel-ims.com/Ukraine/transport/trains.htm#Simferopol) and you will see that the same ticket would cost $41 to $43.
: Moreover, you posted numerous times here and on another site to try to get the same ticket for the cheapest price you could (and in enough lead time too!).
: Also, the same (second class ticket) is much more than the $8.00 in Kiev that you state!
: I purchased the whole second class cabin in June (I've not enough Russian to do otherwise!) and the price (in Simferopol) was 242 hrivnas per berth (about $44.00 per berth!).
: Sour grapes does not warrant such an attack - you are coming acrosss as a "very small person" I think.
