Tour by Veaceslav

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.

Considered to be the pearl of Moldovan winemaking, Cricova is the founder of production of high-quality elite wines.

Great Day at 2 Moldovan Wineries
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! :)
Excellent winery tour
Very well organised throughout with some beautiful wines to sample.
Our guide was very punctual and knowledgable and made the tour that much better. Would recommend highly doing this trip!

Great tour of a fascinating place.
A must-see if visiting Moldova or even next-door Ukraine. Veaceslav is a friendly, knowledgeable, laid-back, professional guide who makes your tour fun, interesting, and memorable. Recommended! Veaceslav also went out of his way to help me reserve my PCR test appointment for my flight the following day. FYI, if you need a PCR test, you should use Alfa Diagnostics, which has a counter at the airport for 24/7 tests or to print out your report if test performed at one of their several clinics around Chisinau.
nice tour
was a nice tour, we visited historical places in the area of Transnistria.
after that visited the capital, we got to know the country from closer view.
everything went good and smoothly. good experience.
recommended guide.
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.
A day in Pridnestrovie...
Perhaps the title is a spoiler for most foreign travellers who plan to visit Transistria but locals prefer to call their land like that. No matter what the name it's definitely a place worth visiting which drives you back to the soviet eras but not only that. I won't say anything more about the trip, I will leave the rest to Veaceslav, the cool and friendly tour guide, who will provide you with lots of historical details and of course anything you need to know about the destination. So, if you ever happen to find yourselves in Moldova don't skip this trip to Transistria. It will be something to remember.
