We were there a few years ago. Do not know about tours in other languages except Russian but the same we saw many times in Spain ( ONLY Spanish in museums. No even flayers in English). They do lecture a lot yet it is customary for Russians to present as much info as it is possible to say in short... More

It's lucky my wife and in-laws are Russian otherwise this wouldn't have understood a thing at this tour! No English or other languages at all during the tour, but having it translated by the missus made it worthwhile. Beautiful setting and buildings. The wine tasting of 10 wines was also interesting but to be honest not to my taste at... More

That visit had 2 parts: the unfortunate one and the pleasant one. Be aware that cash desk would be open same time the first excursion starts, so you couldn't avoid the huge queue. The service itself is not friendly at all. The stuff seams very rude. We was lucky to have the great guide Aleksandr Ivanovich. He seems very enthusiastic... More

Massandra Winery has its main winery along with the Massandra palace, but there are also wine-tasting halls of the winery located in Alupka, on the way to the Vorontsov Palace. The only reason you might go there is because it's really cheap and in a weird way it recreates the socialist retro of the 70s. For three euros you get... More

This was well worth seeing. You get to walk around a beautiful old winery in picturesque setting, understand the history, see cellars with some VERY old wines, understand the production process (the pipes are what amazed me - I always imagined buckets!), and then taste them. It is probably one of the few places in the former USSR where activities... More

There are a lot of wineries in Crimea, but Massandra is definitely the oldest! The most interesting in the 1 hour Massandra tour is their old wine collection. The founder of this winery, prince Golyitsyn, started to collect his enoteca back in XIX century, and now they have a lot of very very old bottles with wine. But they do... More

Went to the winery as part of a cruise ship tour, although there were only about eight of us on the tour. The winery was very busy with a number of tours going on and the shop being extremely crowded. The winery, which is the largest in the Crimea area, has a long history being funded by Tsar Nicholas II.... More

If you like wine, go to visit the Massandra Winery. Mind, it is not very close to the city centre, so you have to take a taxi, trolley-bus or bus. The bus stop is closer to the entrance so it's preferable. Only guided tours are allowed and you can choose an option with wine tasting or without. I'm not sure... More
