Custom Tours of Moldova
I am always being
asked to take people on a tour somewhere in Moldova. The most
popular places of interest seem to be The wine cellars, Tiraspol
and the Transnistra the gorgasia region and Old Orhei
Vichi monastery. I can provide any bespoke tour of Moldova or
even the Ukraine so please don't hesitate to ask about your particular
FOR 2018"GAMMA RAY FIELD IN MOLDOVA".
There are only two
Gamma Ray Fields in the world and one is here in Moldova. Don't
miss this new tour that even the locals don't know about. See
home page for more information.
Vichi monastery Tour
Just a short drive
from Chisinau, Orhei is a monastery in the caves built in 1675,
church of St. Mary Cave cells in which monks lived, remains of
the fortress built by the Tatar's (The Golden Horde) in the 14-th
century ,a church of St. Mary, a house in national style, a back
yard with a small wine cellar, and an exhibition of the local
archeological finds (geto-dacian culture,tatar culture,Moldovan
medieval culture). The
monastery is situated on the side of a steep gorge in a stunning
setting. Be aware that you will have to walk about 1km to reach
the caves, I am told that this is because you need to cleanse
your feet to God. Orhei is one of the most popular places to visit
in Moldova and well worth the walk on a dry day. Be aware that
the walk to the monastery is all a gradual up hill walk.
Mici Wine Cellar Tour
20 minutes from
Chisinau Milestii Mici is the biggest wine cellar in Moldova and
is in the Guinness Book of Records for having the biggest wine
collection in the world. The impressions from the surrounding
landscapes, the splendid architectural ensemble in the style of
ancient feudal castles, the huge entrance into the cellar –
all these draws anyone's attention. The total length of the galleries
is more than 200 kilometers (55 kilometers of which are used and
explored).The depth of the mines varies from 30 to 85 meters.
The big barrels are prepared from Crimean and Krasnodar oak. Their
capacity varies from 600 to 2000 dal.The galleries from Milestii
Mici can even be passed by car, but is much more interesting to
make a tour by foot along the streets which are named according
to some types of wines or grapes like Cabernet, Aligote or Feteasca.
and Transnistra Tour
If you fancy a tour
in the danger zone then look no further. The tour of Tiraspol
is the most popular and I can get you safely through the Transnistra
border to Tiraspol with no fuss or bribes being paid .Using my
service is the safe way to visit Tiraspol. Once there you can
go and get some of their funny money and buy some of the local
famous Kvint cognac. There is always rumors that you can't take
a photo of the statue of Lenin in Tiraspol, but as you can see
there is no problem at all. There is a few interesting things
my guide can tell and show you in Tiraspol, but it's really being
there for a few hours and see how little is going on on the streets
and soak up a bit of old communism rule. The tour is about half
a day in total but should you want to stay longer in the capital
there is no problem.
Large groups can
visit the famous Kvint Cognak brewery. Please ask on request.
Remember these are
just the most popular tours. I can tailor a tour in Moldova to
suit your requests, just ask.
