I am very glad and thankful with the cooperation that we have had during these 3 years. All our tourists – groups and individuals – were satisfied with your work. One of the main things that I appreciate in you is the following: it does not matter what category clients are – tourists, VIP, government delegations or even international organizations (as OSCE) – you can find the best words, the best way, the best “direction” to each of them to make them interested in given information. 

In each review which we had from our clients there were words of thankfulness to your services. Some of our partners even in advance ask us to choose you as a guide for their groups. Thank you for your professionalism and waiting for the future cooperation!

We are an Italian family of 4 people and we did an 8-day tour in Moldavia from 28.03 to 03.04.2018 organized by the Ways Travel agency of Chisinau, known by us at the B.I.T. from Milan.

We had a very positive experience, both for the organization, for the guide, the driver with his means of transport, the places visited, the food, the wines we have tasted on many occasions in the many wineries that Moldova offers and for people always friendly and helpful.

A special mention for our dear Italian speaking guide: Cristina, not only for her professionalism and excellent Italian, but mostly for the reception reserved for us, treating us as people of her family, always trying to meet our needs without never save yourself. We are happy to have been entrusted to a serious and professional agency.

Dear Natalia, we want to thank you sincerely for your expert and skillful guiding during our trip to Moldova. Our experience in Dumbraveni – as we told you – will prove unforgettable for us always. You have a wonderful way with people which will take you far.
