English speaking local (Moldovan) tour guide.
Entrance fee at the fortress of Bender.
Food, drinks, and souvenirs.
Tourists travelling to Tiraspol are required to have passports with them as there is a check-point at Bender.
Since Transnistria is an unrecognized state, your passport will not get stamped. However, officials will issue a registration slip at the border. Usually, tourists are allowed to keep this slip once the tour is done.
In case you want to book a wine tasting session at Mimi Winery, please, let me know in advance because there is an additional charge involved. Large size groups are invited to book this tour. I can provide comfortable minivans. A visit to Mimi is optional and can be organized upon request as it involves a pre-booking.
