We went with Valery and we are still wondering what we were seeing. This area "Transnistria" and the capital Tiraspol is such a special, area that it seems completely unrealistic with Danish eyes. Valery tells you the whole history, from 1990 till today, just as he told how Transnistria functions today. Passport control is an experience in itself. After this trip you will always feel that there is something you do not fully understand. Don't miss the tour - "Bach in the USSR" Do it with Valery in his car

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Permille and Eric, Thank you very much for a nice feedback. I really appreciate you speaking so highly of my guiding. I had a great time with you on the tour. Best regards!

pick up by driver not tour director little information from Chisinau to Odessa unless directly questioning the tour director In Odessa we had requested to see at minimum the steps, the opera house and the beach on the water of the bs. No tour was available of the OH. No beach found We experienced a beautiful walk along the boulevard and saw some extraordinary buildings in the square. The experience of the day trip did not justify the cost due to lack of information in comparison to other day trips taken.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ronald! Thank you for finding the time to write a comment on Odessa tour. I am really sorry to hear that you didn't fully enjoy it unlike many tourist before who were happy to see the sights that are in my tour description. Unfortunately, things you wished to do on the spur of the moment we're not doable given reservation situation at Opera house, long distances to the beaches that don't have easy access to, traffic jams. I hope that you enjoyed seeing the sights specified in the tour description.

While this tour is a long day, it was definitely worth it. Odessa is a beautiful city, and it was fascinating crossing through the many different border checks on the way. Valery is a great guide -- informative and flexible -- and very resourceful! He helped us negotiate all the border crossings, and, in Odessa, he took us to unique sites. We also made a special request: a detour to see a small site, and he easily accommodated us. Hopefully, he will also give you a display of his musical talents.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ardice so much for such a nice comment. I really enjoyed two days we spent together and all the topics we covered. It was my pleasure to drive you to all the sites. I am glad you and the family enjoyed your stay in Moldova!

Valery the tour guides de was absolutely great I just choose a tour that was not appropriate for a short stay in Chisinau as the drive is very long to about 4.30 hours each way including border crossings. We visited Transnistria and that was a very interesting experience and Odessa was very nice. Overall we had a very good time but if you want to go to see this tour you need to be ready to spend a long time in the car

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ricardo so much for your comment. I also enjoyed your company. Good luck!
