Discover Moldova & Ukraine

12 Day Tour, from £1295 per person

On this tailor-made tour in Moldova discover Chisinau, a city more reminiscent of a provincial town with its wonderful selection of museums, a fabulous opera house and plenty of excellent restaurants offering one of Moldova’s national treasures – its wine. In Ukraine, head to the bustling seaport of Odessa, where cobblestone boulevards line the coast  and complete the journey in the cosmopolitan city of Kyiv, where striking golden domes dominate the skyline.

This itinerary leaves you free to spend the days as you wish. However, we can pre-book several excursions in both Moldova and Ukraine. Speak to a Regent Travel Specialist for more details.

Reviews

It is no longer rquired to declare money on entry to Moldova. We recommend the Orheiul Vechi excursion from Chisinau. We went with the same guide (Natasha) who took us to Tiraspol. She was very informative and nice. Chisinau is not geared up for tourists (to put it midly) and it can be hard to find somewhere to eat.  There is a cluster of restaurants at the end of 31 Aug 1989 Street, near the central parks. We particularly liked the Hotel Bristol in Yalta, which as located near the promenade - very pleasant and nice food.
