Transfer From Vilnius Airport To Your Hotel
You will be met in the arrivals hall by your driver who will be holding a board with your name written on it for your private transfer from Vilnius airport to your hotel in Vilnius.
Mabre Residence Hotel
The Mabre Hotel, Vilnius, has been a great favourite with our clients for the last ten years. Housed in a converted 13th century monastery set around a peaceful courtyard, the Mabre has a calm, friendly and warm atmosphere. Recently refurbished, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and classically decorated.
The hotel's courtyard restaurant is a wonderful place to spend the long balmy Baltic summer evenings taking advantage of the hotel's fine cuisine after an enjoyable day's sightseeing. In the winter their cellar restaurant is a warm, cosy place to relax whilst sampling tasty Lithuanian fare.
The Mabre is located in the heart of the Old Town near Pilies Street and St Annes Church, so all the major sights are right on your doorstep.
DAY 2 Vilnius
3 Hour Guided Walking Tour Of Vilnius
Our English speaking guide will meet you in your hotel reception and take you for a 3 hour privately guided walking tour of Vilnius.

If you like to try the local food where the locals eat - we recommend you ask your guide to finish your tour at an authentic Lithuanian restaurant where the food is delicious and good value for money!
If you don't fancy walking for 3 hours, you are very welcome to stop at one of the many cafes in the old town, and chat with your guide about life in Lithuania, what to see etc and pick up some local tips. This 'stopping time' is part of your 3 hours so make the most of their company and local knowledge!
DAY 3 Vilnius
Trakai Castle & Grutas Park (Day Trip From Vilnius)
This enjoyable day trip visits two of Lithuania's unique sights in the company of our friendly English speaking driver.
Grutas Park Soviet Sculpture Park has grown from strength to strength since we first visited. The local 'mushroom millionaire' bought up many of the old discarded Soviet statues that people were happy to see torn down from town squares across Lithuania, and parked them up here anticipating that one day they'd come in handy... and they did! Grutas Park is a museum of Soviet sculptures, where Stalin and Lenin can be sat upon for photos, and the exhibition has developed with many more interesting attractions to keep you entertained.
Trakai Castle is a stunning island castle; walk out across the wooden bridges and explore the inner courtyard and exhibitions, before returning to the mainland and wandering the picturesque streets of Trakai village with its wooden houses and try a local 'kibinai'... look back to view Trakai Castle in all its splendour, a truly iconic Lithuanian view.
The day trip starts with our driver picking you up at your hotel at 10.00 and you will return to Vilnius approximately 18.30. Lunch is available at the restaurant at Grutas Park (not everything has mushrooms!) but this is not included. The tour goes at your pace and if you need to stop our driver will be happy to do so.

St Petersburg Peterhof Tour (4 Hours)
Versailles was the inspiration behind Peter the Great’s desire to build an imperial palace in the suburbs of his new city St Petersburg. The palace, park and the famous system of fountains, including the truly spectacular Grand Cascade were later extended by Peter’s granddaughter, Empress Elizabeth, who loved the place just as much as he did. Catherine the Great moved the court to Pushkin but, afterwards, Nicholas I ordered the building of the modest Cottage Palace in 1826, meaning that Peterhof was once again the Official Imperial Residence and so the park was continually undergoing improvements in the 18th and 19th centuries. During the Second World War, Peterhof was ravaged by German troops like almost all of St. Petersburg’s suburban estates. However, it was one of the first to be resurrected and the estate was almost fully restored by 1947 thanks to the work of military engineers and over one thousand volunteers. The original name of Peterhof was replaced with ‘Petrodvorets’ so that it did not sound German and this is the name still given to the surrounding town, although the palace and park are now known as Peterhof once again.
Mode of transport: by car & walking
Duration: 4 hours
Max 6 people
Price includes: Picking up at your hotel, professional tour guiding, private car or minibus and driver, entrance fee

It is Tsarskoye Selo’s top attraction and particularly famous for its beautiful Amber Room. Less well known, and much more dilapidated, the Alexander Palace is nonetheless also a neoclassical masterpiece, and has a particularly poignant connection with the family of the last Tsar, Nicholas II. The town of Pushkin, which surrounds the Tsarskoye Selo’s estate, was bestowed with this name in Soviet times to honour Russia’s greatest poet, and is St. Petersburg’s most charming suburb. Pushkin has numerous sights connected with Alexander Sergeevich such as a museum in the former Imperial Lycee, where he was schooled.

Reviews for our The Grand Baltic Private Tour (Gold)
"Overall, we had a wonderful time. There’s something to be said for touring a region about which I know next to nothing in advance but having a good tour operator." Mr & Mrs Wohl, June 2016
"Thank you for organising our excellent Baltic tour in July/August 2014. We enjoyed the trip immensely and learnt lots about this interesting part of the world. The arrangements ran like clockwork and all our guides and drivers were excellent. You had chosen each hotel well for a convenient central location and we would return to each.
In summary we had a most enjoyable holiday and we will certainly visit the region again. Tallinn and Helsinki were particular highlights whilst we are now very aware that we have only scratched the surface of St Petersburg!" C & L Singer, 2014
"Just a quick note to say what a wonderful holiday we have just had! Everything worked perfectly – planes, trains and automobiles! The guides were superb! Thank you so much for arranging it all! We are so glad we didn’t do a cruise!! Absolutely NO complaints at all." Annetta, August 2014
"Just a short line to thank you for organising a fantastic trip to the Baltic States and Russia. We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip and have a special mention for the organisation throughout. We had lots of transport connections and guide changes but everything went very smoothly and, allied to what we were seeing, made it a special trip." Mr & Mrs Brown, June 2014
"We have just returned from the Grand Baltic Tour and what an amazing holiday it was! Never having been to this part of the world, and knowing very little about it, we booked with some trepidation! We needn't have worried. Everything was excellent. We visited 5 countries and 6 cities including a Moscow add-on, and it just kept getting better and better.
Each city had its own charm. We liked the unspoilt feel of Vilnius, and the charm of Riga, and the quaintness of Tallinn, which was very lively when we were there. Helsinki was fascinating. St. Petersburg showed us opulence that was off the scale, and Moscow blew away our preconceptions. I will never forget the acres of pansies, tulips, and the heady scent of lilac within the Kremlin. The jewels were spectacular.
The people-carriers that moved the 4 of us about were immaculate. Our guides were very knowledgeable, spoke fluent and sophisticated English. At the end of each tour we felt they were our friends. It was our first experience of a private tour, and I recommend it unreservedly. We felt like VIPs. Well done!" Robinson group, May 2013
"We have just arrived home after a fantastic tour of the Baltic States and Russia. Everything went well. The hotels were good and conveniently located, the staff friendly and helpful, our tour guides and drivers were excellent, both informative and patient with our requests. I would like to thank you and everyone at Baltic Holidays for making this a great trip. Organising a trip of this type from the other side of the world could have been a concern but everything went to plan.Thank You again " John and Kathy Byrne, September 2012
"All the hotels were very good to excellent. Maria our guide in St Petersburg was exceptional. She accommodated to our interests, kept us safe and is a very intelligent young woman who gave us an insight into her beautiful and facinating city.
Giina was excellent and did a great job of showing us the highlights of Tallinn .She combined a great sense of humour with her skill of bringing the history of Tallin to life.
The drivers were all punctual, polite and the cleanliness of their vehicles puts ours to shame!
As usual independent travellers we really enjoyed not having to put the holiday together. The transfers all worked like clockwork and took away the stress of having to find our own transport. Having previously experienced taxis not turning up it was a delight to have the confidence the transfers would be comfortably made. Excellent trip, thank you to all involved." Mr and Mrs Hull, June 2012
"The guides were all interesting and different, spoke excellent English and showed us their city with enthusiasm and passion.
Maria in St Petersburg obviously enjoyed taking us around....We thought she would be hard to beat but then came our guide In Tallinn who shared my name but with a Russian spelling, Giina, and she too gave us another great guided walk with plenty of time and information.
Inga again was a delight with that beautiful smile of hers..... It was pleasant at the end to sit over a coffee and just chat and despite her busy life with work and study she gave us generously of her time....They all had a deep knowledge of their subject and were happy to be questioned about a wide variety of topic....The two Linass, if that is the plural,again were good. It was Linas who introduced us to the traditional Lithuanian foods .Would we have done that without his encouragement?!!
Ivo took us to a traditional Estonian restaurant and again we sampled typical foods. He also talked about mushrooms and how to prepare them as he had been collecting some while we were walking in the bogs and forests of Valhemaa NP.
We had great holiday....Thankyou for organising our tour so well. Best wishes from a sunny but windy Brisbane........" Gina, July 2011
"10 out of 10. We are very fussy on how we give ratings and no matter how hard I try to knock of a few points I cannot find any reason, so congratulations for suggesting, arranging and executing a splendid trip." Peter Smith, August 2011
"We had a totally wonderful time on our trip. Our guides and drivers couldn't have been nicer. The walking tour guide in Riga, Jennifer, was a font of knowledge about absolutely everything. Giina was our guide in Estonia for both tours....Her stories of her family's experiences post WW II under Soviet occupation made the recent history of the region so much more meaningful to us.
I've been raving about the trip to all my friends. The Baltic countries are so lovely, the old towns are so well preserved, the food everywhere was excellent and surprisingly sophisticated, and the people were warm, friendly, and engaging....You did a fantastic job of planning a perfect trip for us.... and I'll definitely recommend you to everyone I know. Thanks so much for all your help." Elizabeth Lewis, September 2010
" We would both like to thank you for all the excellent arrangements you put in place for us for our Baltic holiday. We had an absolutely wonderful time and all the guides and drivers were excellent. Every guide we had were extremely knowledgeable and very interesting as well as being helpful. We loved Vilnius and the Lithuanian hospitality and Linas was extremely interesting on our drive between Vilnius and Riga. Please pass on our thanks to him.
All the hotels were located in excellent positions which enabled us to wander around and explore more at our own leisure, which we loved. You could not have selected better locations for them all. St. Petersburg was very grand and elegant. We also enjoyed Helsinki and had time to reflect on our whole trip. The Audio tour helped is get our bearings and then we took a lovely boat tour around the islands.
We would just like to thank you so much for all of your very professional arrangements made on our behalf. It has been a holiday full of wonderful memories and we would like to go back to Lithuania to see more of that countryWe will certainly be back to you again for another holiday.
Many thanks Phil." Mrs Foskett
