Natalia, a very knowledgeable guide, has beaten my expectations by far!!! I am a frequent traveller, always trying to find good guides. But up till now Natalia is my absolute favorite. It's the information she gave us in between you never can expect from a normal tour guide. Everything was well organized. One can feel that she loves her job. She has wide-ranging skills. Thank you!

Dear Victoria, thank you so much for making my trip to Moldova memorable. Your knowledge, charm and beauty are incomparable. How lucky of me to get the best guide in Moldova for my visit.

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.
