Cultural Tour of Ukraine and Moldova

FCO Advice

This tour is currently unavailable due to the political unrest in Ukraine and the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office's advice against travel to the Crimea. We are monitoring the situation closely and will re-instate the tour once it is safe for us to do so.
Travel with us on a fascinating journey to uncover the rich cultural histories of Ukraine and Moldova. As we travel around Ukraine we admire both urban and rural sights, including waterfalls, caves, palaces and monasteries. Crossing the border to Moldova we explore many of the highlights of the capital city, Chisinau, including the Arc de Triomphe and the extensive underground wineries.

Tour Highlights

  • Lviv - Visit the fascinating Old Quarter on foot with a local guide
  • Chisinau - Explore Moldova's lively capital
  • Odessa - Great photo opportunities of the historic monuments and buildings
  • Yalta - Boat trip on the Black Sea to 'Swallows Nest' and visit to Ai-Petri Plateau and Chufut-Kale cave city
  • Sevastopol - Visit the 'Valley of Death', view the 'Painted Panorama' and visit ancient Greek town of Chersonesos
