History and culture at the edge of the Carpathians

Your guide's descriptive and dynamic commentary at each location paints a realistic picture of life as it was in historical Moldavia.

In this same building was a pharmacy where we had to buy some medicine for an illness. Some people were sick to start with and they passed their bugs to others. Luckily while the packaging was in Hungarian some folks could speak a little English.

I have worked with colleagues in Moldova for many years but only finally visited in January 2019 with snow everywhere and then in May when late Spring revealed how remarkable Moldova really is to visit. There is a tourist infrastructure that caters for the wine tours to the vineyards like Pucari or Chateau Vartely, alongside sumptuous and very efficiently run hotels in Chisinau such as the Radisson Blu and the Courtyard at the Marriet. But the real charm of Moldova are the people, the countryside and more or less having the place to yourself. This is not to over romanticise a country that is economically at the lower end of the GDP spectrum and a society struggling with it’s post Soviet legacy as it has been fought over for centuries, being at the crossroads of Europe. But if you can leave the patronisation at home, be prepared to get by without shouting loudly in English at everyone, then what is revealed is a revelation. Their are four distinct seasons and all have their charm. Chisinau is not like any other European capital city but it is compact, it has wonderful restaurants and bars, Moldovans rightly proud of their wonderful produce and food, and it has an intellectual and cultural aspect that still appeals to all classes. The wine is astonishing and late autumn festivals are worth the visit alone. I have seen operas, plays and concert performances that would rival those of the West End and Broadway. For a fraction of the cost and with audiences who are genuine spectators. Outside of the city, Old Orhei takes your breath away with its natural beauty and historic monastery. Soreco on the Nistru river in the north is real hidden jewel. Air Moldova flies direct from Stansted and it is a joy to find an airline that still believes the passenger is worth respecting. See Moldova like it is now because it won’t always be this way. Come and see a country steeped in a complex and fascinating history but a young nation finding their place in the World. In a World of cliched and hackneyed tourist experiences come and do something much more meaningful and genuine. You will never be asking ‘Where is Moldova?’ again - but just don’t tell everyone.

My wife and I were introduced to the services of Travis Travel, when visiting Romania and Moldova late in 2018. The company, for whom I was appearing at a number of conferences, routinely engaged them for transport and guided tourism. We undertook a number of journeys with them, some for tourist experiences and some for purposes of transit. On all occasions, we were made very comfortable, driven by courteous and considerate drivers and, when guided, were presented with a very helpful level of local information, both historic and practical. Apart from this, our most frequent driver “Sebastian” also knew the best places to stay and to eat. He provided great insight into the local dishes and helped to make our tourism as close to authentic themes as possible. Later this year, we are travelling to Romania again and will be engaging Travis whenever possible. They are a very professional and personable outfit.…
