Around the world with BYTSKO tourist company
Planning a tourist trip to a foreign country can be done with the help of a map — but better to turn to a tourist agency where you will be provided with brochures and advice. But even when you decide upon the route of your travel and places you want to visit, you will have to get a visa, book tickets, reserve rooms in hotels, and do other things which may annoy and take a lot of time. A lot depends on the tourist agency you go to. Some are much more helpful and reliable than others. BYTSKO is such a company.
BYTSKO has been recognized as a leading tour operator in Ukraine that receives foreign tourists and organizes foreign tours for Ukrainians. A number of foreigners visiting Ukraine has increased this year following the events of the Orange Revolution. A great many of these foreign tourists have used the services of the BYTSKO travel company.
BYTSKO has been operating on the Ukrainian market since 1993. Starting from 1998, BYTSKO has been working in cooperation with the European Network of Election Monitoring Organizations and the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe. BYTSKO provided services for foreign observers before and during the parliamentary and presidential election campaigns.
Last year, the Ukrainian pop singer Ruslana won the Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in Istanbul, Turkey, and now it is Ukraine’s turn to play host to this contest. It happens to be the fiftieth time that such contest will be held, and it has attracted a record number of participants, music lovers, and journalists. BYTSKO considers it an honour to have been chosen the official tour operator of the Eurovision Song Contest.
It is not the first time that BYTSKO provides services for touring musicians and pop stars. In 2002, BYTSKO organized a tour of Ukraine for the Davidoff Friendship Tour Orchestra, and in 2003 it organized a tour of Ukraine for the pop singer Ani Lorak, to mention just two of the most important tours of this kind.
For eleven years, BYTSKO has been providing tourist services for groups and individual tourists from many countries of the world. One of the major strengths of the company is its flexibility and ability to act in many spheres of tourist activity. In addition to all those things that a tourist agency is supposed to do, BYTSKO organizes conferences, round-table discussions and guided tours. BYTSKO, for example, took care of the Real Madrid soccer fans who arrived in Ukraine to watch the game of their side, and of the Portuguese Rugby Team. BYTSKO organized a UN family protection conference, a UN AIDS conference, a human rights UN round table discussion, to mention just a couple of more important conferences.
