As a fan of urbex, I was very excited to find Nicolai's "forgotten castles" tour. He went above and beyond to accommodate my last-minute request and the tour was amazing, including some extraordinary locations and great critical discussions. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Moldova and pointed out many details I was overlooking. He is a very polite guy with a great sense of humour - and for those worrying about drivers, you're safe with him :) One of the best guides I've ever met!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Huh, thank you very much, dear Alana, for your kind words! Yeah, that nice experience happens when both, a guide and a traveler share the same passion! It has been a big pleasure for me too. I hope you left Moldova with some good memories and you are always welcome back! So many ruins remained here to be explored! Trust me!))) Wish you all the best!
