In 1999, Phil Teubler visited Lithuania for the first time. It was an emotional trip to visit the family home from where his father had fled over the frozen Baltic Sea during World War II. Perhaps it was in the genes, but Phil fell in love with Lithuania and returned home determined that more people should visit this wonderful country; he set up the pioneering Lithuanianholidays.com.
Phil Teubler (Founder) heads up our Manchester sales office, his enthusiasm and energy for Lithuania and all our destinations has never waned. Call us to chat with Phil about your holiday plans.
During his visit to Lithuania, Phil met with old family friends, including our super-couple Linas & Jurga Zabaliunas (BH back office in Lithuania). Along with Linas’ parents Jurgis & Danute, they were the friendly faces who welcomed you to Lithuania; the local guides, the helping hands, the perfect hosts! Linas & Jurga are now partners in the business and work harder than ever to make sure you get the best holiday possible.
In January 2002 and having just returned from living and working in Lithuania, Sally Chambers (operations manager) joined forces with Phil, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience having travelled in the region extensively. To this day, Sally has visited places in Lithuania that even her local Lithuanian friends haven’t even heard of!
Lithuanianholidays.com evolved into Baltic Holidays as clients wanted to explore the Baltic Capitals on one tour, and our specialist skills meant we were able to offer a much more bespoke and personal Baltic Capitals tour than an average escorted coach tour. In fact, there is nothing average about Baltic Holidays at all – we tailor most trips to suit each client!
Our local teams in our destinations are by far the most important. They meet you, are there to support you, entertain you, give you the best time! We have worked with our trusted suppliers for many years now, and many are our good friends – this benefits our clients with the best service.
Our mission is to match our clients' interests and plans with the best possible holiday to any of our destinations. We believe we can tailor the perfect trip to suit you, so start by telling us your interests and requirements and we can make the suggestions! Some of us were born and live in the Baltics, one of us lived and worked there as an expat, and one of us had parents who escaped during the war from there. These are connections to the Baltics that keep pulling us back for more. We will always discover and try new places and experiences, we will always handpick the best hotels and services for our clients, and we will always make sure you receive the best possible service.
