A perfect day

2 Excursions in One Day-Milestii Mici Winery, Tiraspol City and Bender Fortress | Oct 2019
The pickup was exactly on time and I thoroughly enjoyed maytime with the driver, listening to great music and chatting. We got to Milestii Mici as it opened and were first in line. Everyone should see this winery; it boggles the mind to drive through tunnels in a winery. As enjoyable as the morning was, the afternoon was even better. The guide to Tiraspol, Nicolai joined us and provided incredible insight to the area. Nicolai is very smart and quite a good conversationalist. He answered all of my many questions and took me all through the area. It's such an incredible area and the history behind it and the current state is unique and intriguing. I have recommended Moldova to friends who travel, emphasizing that they must go to Milestii Mici and Tiraspol and definitely go through Best Moldova and ask for Nicolai.

2 Excursions in One Day - Cricova Winery,Tiraspol City and Bender Fortress! | May 2019
Me and my wife (we are a couple from Sweden, 55+) visited Chisinau in Moldova for a long week-end by the end of May 2019. "BestMoldova" was the local tour agency that organised this tour. Without to many details and word, they simply have done an EXCELLENT job! All was perfect, the flexibility to try to help us due to our delayed flight, the high knowledge of all guides, drivers, the warm hearts, the genuine spirit. And speaking about the tours, very interesting to visit Bender and Tirasopol in Transnistria, to hear and feel on my own this complicated part of Europe, the wine testing at Cricova was very good, professional and once again, the local guise in Cricova plus the driver of the minitrain were extremely friendly and took good carer of us. All went well, more than well and for sure a great 2 x Tours! THANK YOU ALL!!!!

Slightly disappointing

star-3Sarah H
Milestii Mici Winery with Tasting | May 2019
This tour consists of a quick drive around the underground wine caves which house lots of bottles of wine with a running commentary. However, it didn't include a tour of any vineyards or any information on how / where the wine is made. It felt like it was quite rushed. The tasting was generous and there was a good selection of nibbles but I was left alone for 20mins or so to taste the wine which was a little odd / awkward. I would not recommend doing this tour as a solo traveller unless you know that there are other travellers taking part in the tour too. I do not think this tour was value for money for the price I paid for it.

Delightful tour and delightful wine

Milestii Mici Winery with Tasting | Jul 2018
Moldova is renown for its wine, and Milestii Mici offers a wonderful opportunity to experience that reason first hand. At a total length of around 200 km and with nearly 2 million bottles, it rightfully boasts having the largest wine cellars in the world. I was picked up promptly at my AirBnB and ferried along with one other passenger to the winery, which is about 20 km from the Moldovan capital Chisinau. We teamed up with a guide and drove underground until we reached a location where we left the vehicles and proceeded, along with a dozen or so others, on a 20-30 minute walk through the cellar. NOTE: Bring a jacket. It gets chilly underground. The extravagant wine enthusiast can even rent a spot in the cellar in which to store those more precious bottles. At the end of the tour, we were led to a tasting room, given three generous jugs of different wines to try, accompanied by some tasty savory snacks and serenaded by musicians. The whole thing was very convivial and was a perfect introduction to the Moldovan wine scene. My only regret is that I can't seem to find their wine here in the US.

2 Excursions in One Day-Milestii Mici Winery, Tiraspol City and Bender Fortress | Jun 2018

Had a fantastic day on this tour learning about Moldovan wine and history. Both guides were super knowledgeable, friendly and allowed plenty of time to see the sights along the way. The winery is astonishing and the wine tasting was a very pleasant experience. Visiting Transnistria was incredible and a bit scary border crossings! at the same time, although the guys from BestMoldova got us through without any problems. The whole experience from start to finish was flawless and the transport was modern and comfortable. Thanks very much BestMoldova.

2 Excursions in One Day-Milestii Mici Winery, Tiraspol City and Bender Fortress | Nov 2017

We had a day trip to Milestii Mici winery/wine cellar complex the largest in the world plus Bender and Tiraspol. The wine cellars were closed due to a power shortage on the first attempt, so on the day of our arrival we only visited Bender and Tiraspol. But that was not a problem, as the travel company arranged us a separate trip to the cellars next morning. All in all, the trips were well organized and our guides on both days had a good knowledge of the places we visited. This trip can well be recommended.

2 Excursions in One Day-Milestii Mici Winery, Tiraspol City and Bender Fortress | Jul 2017

I have to comment the tour excursions separately as we were unable to do the 2 excursions in one day. The Milestii Mici winery lost electricity on our originally scheduled day.

3 stars: Tiraspol Transnistria. If you are interested in seeing what a version of communist regime is, then I would book this tour. Both bour tour guide and driver -- through BEST Moldova company -- were reassuring in navigating us through the entry to Transnistria. As an American, it's a little harrowing. I liked seein some of the sights, but didn't feel like we needed to spend as much time in the area as is allotted. Lunch at Ukrainian restaurant very good.

4 stars: Milestii Mici. If you enjoy wine, the underground wine caves are truly something to see. BEST Moldova travel company is to commended to picking us up on a separate date to ensure we got to see Milestii Mici. There are many hidden surprises along the tour! I would definitely recommend adding the wine tasting experience should you book this package. We had some in our group who didn't and they had to stand awkwardly around while those of us who were tasting got situated. Milestii Mici puts on an impressive spread to accompany the wines. Be ready to power drink, though, as there isn't a lot of time to sit and linger.

This was an amazing experience. Victor, our driver, and Natalia, our guide were exceptional. Victor was very safe and even drove us to the airport the next day on his own time. Natalia is extremely knowledgeable about Moldovan history and especially about Transnistria. She loved my daughter and took excellent care of her. We stopped for pictures anywhere that I requested. They both did a fabulous job! Highly recommended!
