          Wonderful day tour to Transnistria
          The best experience ever with Hi Moldova! Thanks for excellent job and Nick as a tour guide! Transnistria is definitely a must see destination in Republic of Moldova.

          Timecapsule - back in the USSR
          We had a very nice daytrip with our very friendly and informative guide Nicolai. Picked up as agreed in Chisinau and taken through Bender and downtown Tiraspol as well as a quick visit to a smaller village. Nicolai informed about everything; not only the sights, but also about life in both places. We were in very good company all day long and had a delicious traditional meal all together in a timecapsule in Bender. Nicolai is a very talented guide and a huge source of knowledge about the area and its history as well as a very nice person. We can only recommend both the trip and our guide. Thank you, Nicolai!

          Excellent opportunity to get some insights about the former USSR
          I really enjoyed this tour. My guide Nicolai was well organised and flexible regarding my interests. This tour is not so much about what you see, but more about the stories around it. If I would have visited the places without the explanations, it would have been a lot less impressive. Hearing why people are missing the good old times of the USSR gives you a different perspective on things, which was very interesting.

          5 stars service from Hi Moldova!
          We have three friends group and only a few days to be in Moldovia & Transnistria: so we hired a travel agency for two days – and we were very, very lucky that we chose Hi Moldova! Everything happened just as we talked, the schedule was precise as agreed and our guide, Laurentia, was so brilliant! Lots of good stories and she knew everything about history & places we visited and always had some extra to tell! I have only very positive thoughts – I cannot find any negative things to say… I highly recommend using Hi Moldova’s service when visiting Moldova!

          Memorable, pleasant visit
          The tour was very wonderful. The guide presented everything well and it was fascinating to learn all about it. It was very convenient that hotel pick up was provided; hospitality was very high-level. My mom and sister who came with me enjoyed it very much too, made for a good family outing.

          A good day in Transnistria
          This was a great tour! We usually explore places on our own, but to go to Transnistria we needed a guide who knows Russian. I am very glad that we chose this tour because the guide told us a lot of interesting things about Transnistria. In addition, we also stopped at the Bendery fortress before going to Tiraspol, which I really liked. Otherwise, I really liked the good organization and development of the trip!

          Best tour we‘ve ever had
          This tour was absolutely fantastic! So much better than if we had gone alone, the expertise and professionalism of our guide was amazing. The whole day is very customisable to what you find interesting, and the guide went out of his way to make it more special for us. We learnt so much about the local culture and mentality, and had some fantastic conversations with our guide during the whole day! We highly recommend this tour, don‘t miss it!

          A great day
          This was such a great tour. We normally explore places on our own but to go on this tour made sense logistically. We didn't have much time in Moldova and combining Milestii Mici and Transdniestria allowed us to save time and discover more of this fascinating country. The tour was very well organised. Mtvarisa, who picked us up from our accommodation, was super friendly and really ensured that everything went well on the day. Nicolai and Tatiana, the tour guides, were also nice and very informative. Totally highly recommended: loads of fun, good food and wine, interesting history.

          Amazing Moldova
          The tour was fantastic. I felt very safe even in current times. Our guide, Laurentia, was fantastic: very friendly, explained everything about the history and culture of the region, answered all my questions. In addition, Moldova exceed my expectations. People was so nice and polite, very good food, and the wine… ahhh the wine!!! There are outstanding wines in Moldova, just waiting to be discovered. Please, you need to try!

          What's not to love about Moldova?
          I'm 6 weeks late in finally writing this review, but it must be said: Wow! What a heartfelt experience this was, with Laurentia Z., my tour guide operating through HiMoldova. For a few separate day-trips that proved unforgettable, I'm glad I made the decision to visit the beautiful, humble country of Moldova when I did, and was able to connect with Laurentia of all people. She's truly a wonderful, motherly woman, who showed me more love than my own family members ever have, ha. She showed me around Chisinau, and surrounding areas, and even managed to help me reconnect with a former Moldovan-Ukrainian girlfriend and her family members. Each conversation was natural and meaningful, and I was treated as a friend, or even a son, rather than a customer. There's so much more to Moldova than a visitor could imagine, and I can't think of a better way to explore the country's historical and natural attractions, than with Laurentia. I now have a newfound appreciation for the special people surviving in this part of the world, from the local Moldovans to the Ukrainian refugees, and they've truly earned my respect. The sights are impressionable, the food and wine spectacular, and I'd be crazy to not recommend taking this trip of a lifetime, to anyone considering going. Show Moldova some love! They deserve it.

          The monasteries from Bucovina • Putna • Suceava
          The trip includes one of the most important cultural heritage sites in Eastern Europe. It is possible to do this during the weekend from Chisinau. I did an individual tour with a historian and it was absolutely fantastic. It is very much recommended to do this trip. Especially with Nikolai who can tell you a lot, not only about the Moldovan history but also the current situation in the region. The romanian Bukovina is not only fantastic in terms of historical sites but also in terms of landscape and May is a perfect month to travel there.

        My driver, Victor, was great company and got me to both sites with good conversation, his English and driving are good. He has relationships with the guides/people at both sites which really helped enhance the experience and made things straight forward for me. The two guides at the sites were both engaging and interesting,. They are similar, they are both underground wineries in old mines and both have tastings. I enjoyed the contrast between the two. If you've only time for one I'd probably go for Cricova.
        Victor is passionate about his country, were many young people leave due to low salaries. I was lucky enough he was free the next morning to arrange a last minute trip to Old Orhei.

        We had a fantastic private tour of Cricova and Milestii Mici Wineries. Both wineries are not to miss if you are visiting Chisinau. Our guide, Victor, was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. You get to see a lot in a relatively short period of time. You don't have as much time at Milestii Mici to try the wines versus at Cricova, so I would recommend getting a glass of wine and sitting outside before the tour begins. All in all it was a wonderful experience and

        My husband and I booked a private tour to Cricova and Milestii Mici Wineries. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. It was an amazing trip into the underground wineries, of which were unlike anything we'd seen before. We had a very detailed and informative overview of Moldova, wine, and history. Victor was an amazing guide! I would absolutely recommend booking the tour.

        When you are visiting Chisinau (Kisinev), of course you must the Wineries which reflect the soul and culture of Moldova. How much Wine industry is very important in this country, you should see and understand. Therefore, especially Cricova Winery which has more than 100 Km tunnels under the mountain, is the major focal point. If you dont have time for both wineries, I recommend Cricova. Bring your own jacket because it is cold inside the tunnels. Or, they may provide a cape for protecting your shoulders. You should take an appointment before the visit, because there are visiting times and organized guides. These wineries are 30min away from Kisinev. You must consider min. 2 hr tour timing. Definitely, you will enjoy and experience the real wine world!

        Many thanks to Victor for organising this individual tour for me. I booked it last minute and we were not able to hit both wineries in the same day, but were able to agree to do both over the weekend, plus organised extra excursion to Old Orhei - which was just a great experience! Victor knows all the locals and special spots with great views and fantastic food! Both wineries are impressive in size, with beautiful traditions and fantastic wine. Overall, I really enjoyed my time and was able to relax not having to worry about anything! I recommend Hi Moldova, and Victor, to all who are interested in visiting Chisinou and Moldova!

        This is a winery that is unlike any other that I've seen. They basically store and process their wine underground in an old mine. It is huge with miles and miles of tunnels where guests take trams to different spots under ground to see how the wine is stored and processed. It looked like the headquarters for a villain in a James Bond movie and it is absolutely something that visitors should see. They even have completely decked out tasting rooms where guests can try samples of wine that is available. The options are also good by the way, and they are complimented by this one-of-a-kind environment.
