Tour by Veaceslav
Local

I graduated from the Faculty of Tourism at the Academy of Economic Studies of Moldova and have worked for 2 years as a tourism manager in local travel agencies. But I soon decided to pursue a career as a Tour Guide to combine my profession with my passion: traveling and outdoor, because I am not a follower of office work. This led me to study to obtain a license as a travel guide.

All the major historic sites were constructed in the 19th century (all of them from the local white limestone creating an image of the city as "A Stone Flower") reflecting the period of history known as Imperial.

Superb introduction to the city
for Veaceslav’s tour (City Tour of Chisinau)
As a history buff, I thoroughly enjoyed Veaceslav's comprehensive yet relaxed tour. The city (and country) has a fascinating but complex modern history, and my understanding was greatly enhanced by Veaceslav's local expertise. Being a private tour, I especially enjoyed the many opportunities to ask questions and engage in conversation about living in Chisinau.
An excellent tour of Chisinau with a friendly and hospitable guide
for Veaceslav’s tour (City Tour of Chisinau)
We had a wonderful walking and driving tour around Chisinau with Veaceslav, whose warm personality more than made up for the freezing weather and snow. We took in the main square, a beautiful park, passed by several important religious sites and Veaceslav was very helpful in giving us tips for the rest of the day in the city. We spent the afternoon in the historical museum and then the modern art gallery. Veaceslav was so helpful, professional and friendly that we were able to book two more tours with him for the following days, which were also amazing, spectacular and infused with the same sense of pride and knowledge about his home country. Highly recommended!

Great layover time spending
for Veaceslav’s tour (City Tour of Chisinau)
I had a layover in Chisinau and I decided to have a short city center overview tour by car instead of being stuck in the airport premises. The guide/driver Gorita Veaceslav met me at the airport (extra 15 euro both ways) and took my hand luggage to his car. He was welcome and told me about the country/city and people. It was very interesting to listen to him. It was a combined riding/walking tour and despite freaking cold weather on that day, we did out best to walk and see.
I do recommend this tour company as reliable and this tour in particular for those short in time or with long layover in the airport. You will be pleased to spend 3-4 hours with Veaceslav showing you his home city.

Insightful and fun tour
Veaceslav was on time and the tour I went to provided a lot of insight into Moldovan culture. Even though one of the wine tours was cut short due to a technical problem, I highly recommend the wine tour as it was great fun and informative! :)
Awesome experience
I had a really good experience visiting Transnistria with Veaceslav. I came alone to Chisinau from Bucarest to visit this country, As it was sometimes described as a dangerous place on the Internet, I felt way more confident visiting it with a local.
Finally, it turned out to be a pretty safe and peaceful place ! But it is still the "sovietic style" place I'd expected it to be.
Veaceslav is an excellent guide, he knows everything there's to know about the country : traditions, politics, economy, hitsory, … I definitely recommend !
Amazing tour!!
We booked a tour to Transnistria and Milesti Micii winery, and it all went great! The tour itself is amazing, and Veaceslav gave us the best interaction and information we could’ve asked for, driving us safely in a very comfortable car.
