We actually did not see Yalta, but did the ship's excursion to Sevastopol. Due to the distance from Yalta and the short amount of time in port, I would not do a private tour to Sevastopol. Due to problems with the ship's engines, we ended up having to be tendered at Yalta. This, combined with the terrible traffic to/from Sevastopol, meant that any private tour would have had to have been shortened in order to get us back to the ship in time. Because we were on a ship's tour, we were able to see everything and then come back late and have a tender waiting for us. The tour of the submarine base in Balaclava was interesting, but there's not a whole lot to see inside. The stop at the seaside park should have been changed to a stop at the site of the Charge of the Light Brigade--there's not much to see in that park. The Panorama museum was interesting, but don't let them rush you--take your time and see the painting on both levels! The lunch was best we had on the 3 ship's excursions we did--it included both champagne and vodka and the food was delicious. Read Less
