    Iulian was our driver. He was the best. He answered our many questions. If we asked to see something not really in the itinerary he always let us. He is very patient and seems to enjoy his job. His English is excellent.

    My day tour to Moldova was fantastic. My guide and driver were wonderful and made the experience even more enjoyable. Thank you Otilia and Ovidiu. I especially enjoyed the tour at Cricova winery, this place was awesome and shouldn't be missed on a trip into Moldova. Very enjoyable wines too.
