Reviews for our Highlights of Moldova Private Tour 5*
"I had a really good time. My tour of Chisinau was led by Christina and Vladimir and they did a great job.
The wineries and the monasteries fun. And, of course, Transnistra was the most unusual. I have been to both the Soviet Union and Russia, and this was really a step back in time." Dorothy May 2016
