What a wonderful holiday. Everything was well organised and went well.
The guide, Cristina, was excellent, good English and very knowledgeable and keen that we should see every cultural and characteristic aspect of Moldova. The visit to the Roma "family" was fascinating-not a "family" visit but a meeting with the Roma head of family in his huge house ornate and wealthy and we had a delicious home make cherry juice and had a question and answer session with hin. He,Robert, is a relative of the Roma king. This was very informative as I am very interested in everyone and everything but tourists need to be interested in the Roma people and way of life otherwise input wouldn't be so fascinating!!
The visit to the "old believers" village was just great-tea from a samovar and cakes and a very pleasant woman the librarian and museum custodian. In Gaugazia we met the Museum curator and again a fascinating insight into Gaugazian history.
Much of our enjoyment and insights was enhances by Cristina who translated everything so well.
The visits to the wineries were an eye opener and the wine tasting too. I recommend tourists who go to the Cricova winery to to wear warm clothes and a scarf as we go deep down into the underground "city" to see the stored wine.
We loved the food (and all the wine).

If you go to Moldova, for tourism or for business, you can't do it without Cristina. She knows the country perfectly, its history, its culture, its traditions... And she knows all its places: monasteries, churches, villages. Plus it speaks perfect Russian, Romanian and Italian and will let you communicate with all the people you meet.
Thanks, Cristina, for making this trip beautiful and unforgettable.

I could give her at least fifteen stars ... Cristina is an exemplary guide, makes you know Moldova like no one ever. On a par if not better than those who work in destinations definitely more popular. Experience to be done without any doubt.

We are an Italian family of 4 people and we did an 8-day tour in Moldavia from 28.03 to 03.04.2018 organized by the Ways Travel agency of Chisinau, known by us at the B.I.T. from Milan.
We had a very positive experience, both for the organization, for the guide, the driver with his means of transport, the places visited, the food, the wines we have tasted on many occasions in the many wineries that Moldova offers and for people always friendly and helpful.
A special mention for our dear Italian speaking guide: Cristina, not only for her professionalism and excellent Italian, but mostly for the reception reserved for us, treating us as people of her family, always trying to meet our needs without never save yourself. We are happy to have been entrusted to a serious and professional agency.

The trip was really organized to the fullest. Facilities, vehicle, driver and above all the guide Cristina really good! Moldova is very pleasant, especially the monasteries. We have come back indeed from a gastronomic journey a little tipsy. The wines and cuisine really good!

During my recent holiday to Moldova, I was lucky enough to have Miss Victoria Odobescu as a guide and driver on two occasions. One day we went to Orheiul Vechi, and another to Soroca, the XV fort guarding the Dnistre river crossing. Miss Odobescu speaks very good colloquial English, her range is wide and is a confident and safe driver. Victoria, was exceptionally well-informed about the history, culture, and people of Moldova. In addition, she was very sensitive to my needs and wants. I highly recommend the services provided by Victoria Odobescu. I am sure she will have success in her career in Tourism.
