Natalia was an excellent guide and from the first minute made us feel very welcome. She asked about our objectives for the tour and what we wanted from it and then tailored some items accordingly. Transnistria was an unusual place to visit but wasn't as dark or oppressive as you think before you visit. We visited a moving war memorial museum about the breakaway, amongst many other places, and ate at an excellent restaurant. Natalia was always ready to answer questions and provide history details.

The tour Back to soviet era.... was very interesting and with many things to see. The guide was as one with the driver and it was a must more. We had seen many monuments and the long but easy walking along the principal road of Tiraspol full of many information about people, political, landscape, jobs, shops, stamps, money and everything is interesting for the real travellers. You helped us to understand very well the real "air" that reign in Tiraspol and so we thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Francesco and Renato!! We did our best to make you enjoy your trip!! Good luck to both of you! ;)

This was a really interesting tour - it was fascinating taking a drive around Transnistria, with the border control and the cold war feel about the place. Highly recommend this trip if you are in Moldova. Natalia is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable on the history and has lots of interesting stories. The Uzbek place she took us for lunch had the best borsch I've ever tasted! Highly recommend ******

Natalia provided an outstanding trip to this unusual enclave. Her background gave her a unique lens through which she could view both sides of the 30 year history. She used a separate driver to concentrate on things important to us and was quite familiar with all the applicable rules & regulations to keep us out of unnecessary delays. Her focus was on providing different glimpses of life there (museums, grocery stores, monuments) as well as obligatory facts & figures. Far exceeded expectations.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas, thanks a lot for your feedback. I am very glad you enjoyed your trip to Transdniester!!!

Natalie provided a great overview of Moldova during the travel to Transnistria which was very engaging. Customs was handled by the guide. I left Transnistria feeling that I had gained a greater understanding of the history of Transnistria and seen the highlights. Tour provided time for lunch at a local restaurant, plenty of time to take pictures and to purchase souvenirs such as post cards, stamps, and local Transnistria brandy. Tour went smooth, was well thought out and paced by a outstanding guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Michael! It was a great pleasure to be you guide)

Natalia was an excellent guide and explained a lot about Transdniester to me. It was an interesting and trouble free visit. I was disappointed not to be able for visit Tiraspol fort.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry that we missed the visit to the fort, but we are out of tourist season now and there is no groups to join for this fortress tour as the local guides works with groups only. Anyway thanks for your feedback.

As a local, Natalia is really knowledgeable about the whole history and was able to explain to us the complex politics and history behind Transninistria. We really enjoyed our tour of Bendery & Tiraspol and it will remain with us as a totally unique experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
