Our local guide and driver were outstanding. The guide was very informative, clear in her delivery, extremely organised and caring, but also very approachable and friendly. The driver drove extremely well and safely, had a friendly, helpful styles and manner and was always around to assist. Altogether I had an excellent tour.
A tour to Moldova is one of our more unusual and quirkier offerings but this country - nestled between Romania and Ukraine - is no less fascinating, enjoyable and culture-packed than other, more established travel destinations. With a tranquil countryside strewn with deep forests and bright sunflower fields Moldova is certainly a natural beauty, but it’s in its unique history and eccentric towns that mark it out as something different and well worth visiting. The capital city, Chisinau, is like a living museum of the Soviet era with its goose-stepping guards and Communist monuments, while the Moldovan love of wine manifests itself no more than in the vast Milestii Mici complex which houses the biggest wine cellar in the world.
A Moldova tour is also a fantastic opportunity to visit the frankly odd Transnistria region – a self-proclaimed socialist republic that is still clinging onto the country’s Soviet past.
