Just a quick note to say thank you for your help and to let you know that Alex in Kyiv and Eugene in Simferopol both gave excellent service. The best drivers I have ever met. Eugene's knowledge was an education and it seemed that everywhere we went in Crimea someone knew him??
I would like to add that the company in the UK that specialises in travel to Ukraine were not able to help me with flights between Kyiv and Simferopol and did not even reply to my request. But you managed to arrange these flights with ease.
