Overview of our The Baltic Capitals Economy Tour

This 6 night, partly escorted group coach tour, visiting all three Baltic Capitals is exceptional value for money - in fact its a similar price to a standard city break.

Staying two nights in each capital city it's a great introduction to the Baltic region and perfect for those that have limited time for their holiday.

You will independently catch the local bus between each capital (tickets included), however you will have the reasurance of having a tour guide if you need any help. Escorted city tours are included and you will also have the opportunity to add extra tours and meals so you can join in with the rest of your group should you wish.

You start in the picturesque Lithuanian capital Vilnius. This city is one of the loveliest in Eastern Europe. Church spires and domes dot the skyline, cobbled roads lead to interesting pretty streets lined with colourful houses and the magnificent cathedral dominates the centre of the city.

The Latvian capital of Riga is a bustling glamorous city with a pretty old town and stunning Art Nouveau District. There is plenty to see and do and with a renowned Opera house it's worth enquiring about what is playing during your visit.

Tallinn, the Estonian capital, is an enchanting city. Fairytale towers, colourful Hanseatic houses, glorious views across the Bay of Tallinn, meandering cobbled streets lined with local arts and craft market stalls, all make for a relaxing and cultural break.

Reviews for our The Baltic Capitals Economy Tour

" Jane and I have just come back nine days ago Your organisation was superb and everyone on the tour was so impressed with the way you re-arranged the return visit after having been b*****ed about by the infamous Mr Ryan and the transport between the capitals.
The hotels were first class and the guides excellent, especially Ona who accompanied us in Lithuania. Do not lose her she was so knowledgeable and her english was excellent as was her sense of humour. Only problem we had was that when she dropped us in Riga, her turn-around was so quick that she was off before everyone was able to give her something in recognition of what she had been doing.
Our party gellede together extremely well. We have been extolling the virtues of Baltic Holidays to all our friends and hope that you might get something out of this. They say the best advert is a satisfied customer and you have these in spades.
Thanks and very best wishes for your own future as well as that of Baltic Holidays." Richard and Jane, May 2013

" we were really spoiled at the hotels in Vilnius and Riga - very pleasant places, with excellent breakfasts. The hotel in Tallinn was perfectly ok. All hotels were very convenient for walking into the towns, and would be happy to use them again...All the arrangements were well made and punctual. The initial driver who took us from Riga to Vilnius was waiting at the airport, extremely pleasant and we had a very comfortable drive. All other drivers and guides were good. The guides spoke good English, were very informative and considerate and we were very happy with all the arrangements and the tours." Mrs Cottle May 2013

" I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday...hotels were all good, particularly in Vilnius and Riga. " Mr Bleasdale May 2013
