Short Description

Landlocked between Romania and Ukraine, this is probably Eastern Europe’s most unknown country. It was part of the Soviet Empire and is still largely influenced by the politics of the East and the West. A strip of Moldova's internationally recognized territory on the east bank of the river Dniester has been under the de facto control of the breakaway government of Transnistria since 1990. We also visit Transnistria in our Insight Into Moldova tour.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
