Are you weighing the decision to attend an East European romance tour or simply arrange the trip on your own? Before deciding one way or the other, here are a few things to consider.
The oldest and most reputable company in the European dating tour business is A Foreign Affair. While AFA tours once arranged romantic singles tours to various regions of Eastern Europe (including Russia and Riga, Latvia), it now focuses predominately on the Ukraine. Ukrainian tour cities include Poltava, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Odessa, Kherson, and Nikolaev. Newcomers to the Euro dating tour industry include SinglePartyTours.com and DreamConnections.com.
By and large, each company provides similar services. East European romance tours generally include airport pickup, pre-arranged accommodations, translators, plus the main attraction – the social event. Social events are a great opportunity to meet hundreds of gorgeous single girls in a laid back social atmosphere. They include food, drinks and entertainment, plus open-minded translators who are on hand to facilitate communication with those Ukrainian ladies who struggle to speak English.
The advantage of social events is they give gentlemen the opportunity to choose their desired women, and invite them on dates over the ensuing days. European romance tour staff will also help plan excursions, so you can focus more on your companion and less on the hassle of making your own arrangements.
For some, spending thousands of dollars on an Eastern European dating tour is unrealistic. For others, it makes perfect sense. Whether you fall into the first camp or the latter depends on one question. How do you value your time? If you have limited vacation time or you simply can’t be bothered with the hassle of a bumbling East European bureaucracy, then having your trip prearranged by an experienced party is a wise decision. And it goes beyond simple planning. East European romance tours also offer another advantage. Tour operators and their employees (drivers, guides, translators), take personal responsibility in seeing that you remain safe and aren’t taken advantage of. They will give you invaluable support and advice that is hard to come by when going it alone.
Presently, most East European romance tours are arranged to the Ukraine. And in all honesty, whether you are planning on taking a tour or arranging your own trip, this is the best place to meet single women. Ukrainian girls, after all, are just plain beautiful. They are also very modest, down to earth and approachable. There isn't a bad Ukrainian city to attend a romance tour. Even Ukraine's capital, Kiev, is full of gorgeous, single, approachable women. In addition, the capital also attracts a multitude of ladies from the rural regions of Ukraine.
If you have more time on your hands, and are looking for a bit of an adventure, then planning your own trip can be quite rewarding and save you a significant amount of money. And needless to say, if you are serious about finding a Russian or Ukrainian bride, then you’ll need to spend more than a week or two to strengthen a serious bond with your future partner. Here is an excellent resource for do-it-yourself travel to Russia and Ukraine. The site provides contact information for guides and interpreters throughout Russia, Ukraine and nations of the former Soviet Union. Whether you are looking for accommodations, assistance with transportation or interpreter services, independent guides and interpreters provide significant savings over tour operators, yet still give you the peace of mind of professional travel assistance.
