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.

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! :)

Very Insightful Tour of Tiraspol!
A thoroughly enjoyable day exploring a completely unique place in Transnistria. My tour guide was very informative and friendly; having been the only person on my tour I felt in good company and enjoyed the flexibility and insight of the tour.

Would certainly recommend the tour to anyone considering it!

To anyone with reserves over crossing the border - for me it was a quick and straightforward process, which the guide helped with.
Fantastic and Informative Tour
I booked this tour last minute and was extremely happy that I was able to visit Transnistria. Communication from the start was excellent and all questions I had were answered. My tour guide was Marcel, who was extremely knowledgable and friendly. Marcel showed me all of the highlights of Transnistria, as well as any quick detours that we found along the way.

If you are ever in Moldova, I would highly recommend using this tour company!
Better than we expected!
Veaceslav is such a nice and attentive guide. He picked us up at the hotel and drive us first to Bendery and after to Tiraspol.
We had a lot of interesting historical information which made us feel like we were having history classes in loco.
We tried local food in a really Soviet restaurant which made our experience even more complete.
Finally, we strongly recommend the tour! :)
