BESPOKE BALTIC TOUR - 'THE TRIP WAS EXCELLENT!'
The trip was excellent. All your arrangements worked like clockwork, and we were well spoiled. The guides were all delightful in their own different ways, especially Linas and Aldis. I was relatively surprised to find how modern looking, clean and civilised all the States were— and the roads are a damned sight better than ours. People everywhere were delightful. Altogether a great trip, for which many thanks. Keeping three well travelled old guys happy is not an easy task.
THREE WELL TRAVELLED OLD GUYS, BALTIC TAILOR-MADE TOUR, JUNE 2018
THE GUIDES WE HAD WERE EXCEPTIONAL!
The guides we had were exceptional!Kertu - told us so much about living in Communist times and brought the whole city to life. Inga,in Riga, really knows about architecture as she is working on her PH.D in that field. Thank you or someone for Ieva! We had a great time talking about nature, schools, etc. So, in all, everyone one was well or over-qualified to talk with us about cities, countries, communism, cooking and other stuff! Oh, I forgot "Vickie", who took us to the Curonian Spit. What a fun, upbeat person! She brought a picnic lunch for us so we could sit and enjoy it on the hilltop above Nida, where the German writer's home is located.

THANKS AGAIN, AND KEEP UP THIS HIGH STANDARD!
We have returned from our trip to Moldova and Transnistria and just wanted to tell you that it was excellent and far exceeded even our high expectations. The tour guide (Elena) and the driverwere exceptionally good throughout. We also much appreciated the time we spent with local peasant families, sharing meals with them, or learning more about their ancient customs. Thanks again, and keep up this high standard!

THE TRIP WAS AMAZING - WE HAD A FABULOUS TIME!
Well what can I say! The trip was amazing-we had a fabulous time! Everything went like clockwork.You chose brilliantly with the accommodation. Thecottage in Palanga was perfect-we had a chance to really relax, cook together and catch up with sleep. Palanga was great to see by bicycle. The manor house in Latvia was stunning and the hosts were a beautiful, kind couple. Finally in Kaunas it was like staying at a relatives house. We felt very welcome and cared for and my children said that Jurgis and Danute reminded them of their grandparents as they felt so comfortable with them! So all in all-a huge thankyou. I have already told lots of people about our holiday and recommended your company.

THANK YOU FOR ONE OF THE BEST HOLIDAYS WE HAVE EVER HAD (AND WE HAVE HAD A FEW!)
Thank you so much for putting together a top notch experience. Please can you pass on our appreciation to Jurga too. Everything went smoothly. The itinerary was spot on, there was something fantastic to see on the days we were on the move and we never felt the journeys were too long. Thank you for one of the best holidays we have ever had (and we have had a few!)

WE REALLY LOVE THE WHOLE TRIP – BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY
Thanks for your warmest escort in Vilnius and Kaunas, it has been a wonderful time for me, Sam and Tai. You and your expertise team like – Cyrus & Vytaute have keep us informed that Lithuanians are sincere and courtesy to make friends... The sightseeing in KGB Museum, 9th Fort and Cold War Museum let our visions open wide that we seems to be the “Pioneer” to share our Lithuania’s experience amongst our peers group. We really love the whole trip – Between Shades of Gray, not to mention the accommodation, heritage sites and great food.

THE STAFF AT BALTIC HOLIDAYS ARE PROFESSIONAL, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXCEEDINGLY FLEXIBLE
My husband and I worked with the exceptional staff at Baltic Holidays to plan two remarkable tailor-made vacations: One to Russia, Finland and Estonia, the other to Eastern Europe visiting Bucharest, Budapest and Prague. The accommodations were perfect and located in convenient places in the cities we visited. The guides we had for day trips both in and out of the cities were knowledgeable, smart and each and everyone went out of their way to make our visit wonderful. We were warmly greeted at the airport and bus stations with staff that took us to our hotels and delivered us back on time and in comfort. Baltic Holidays went the extra mile to help us get tickets to concerts, operas and even the Moscow Circus. But best of all the staff at Baltic Holidays are professional, knowledgeable and exceedingly flexible. We spend lots of time communicating on e-mail about different trip options until we got our plans just right. We feel like the staff are friends now and look forward to working with them again on our next adventure.

FIRST TIME WE HAVE USED A HOLIDAY COMPANY
We would like to thank you both for organising our recent short break in Riga. Everything worked perfectly from the moment we were met at the airport to when we were driven back to the airport at the end. It was the first time we have used a holiday company – we usually book our hotels and flights ourselves – but we are very glad that we did. We have been telling our friends about our good experience with Baltic Holidays, so hopefully you might get some more bookings! Thank you once again – and please thank Inga and Aldis for making our holiday so much better.
BARRY & FIONA, RIGA CITY BREAK, APRIL 2018
ALL OUR GUIDES/DRIVERS WERE GOOD, FRIENDLY AND INFORMATIVE
We really enjoyed the trip to the Baltics and had a great time. We want to thank you and Jurga for all the contact, suggestions and responses to questions/enquiries/etc. We thought all our guides/drivers were good, friendly and informative.We would be happy to recommend Baltic Holidays to prospective clients.The itinerary was great and we appreciated the suggestions from your company as we finalised our arrangements. We also appreciated that there is a company that offers tours in this part of the world during a time of the year when a lot of other companies don't offer any options.
A MEMORABLE TRIP TO A LARGELY UNKNOWN PART OF THE WORLD
Just wanted to say that the recent Moldova trip was an excellent introduction to a fascinating, beautiful country with a complex history but the most friendly, hospitable people and culture. The traditional food was great and the wines amongst the best I have ever tasted. Transnistria was like going back in time and the Victory Day Parade was surreal but highly entertaining and poignant at the same time, especially the Immortals parade. Thanks again to you and the team for a memorable trip to a largely unknown part of the world.

MOSCOW & ST PETERSBURG PRIVATE TOUR
I wanted to let you know how nicely everything worked out. We will have a hard time deciding between Moscow and St Petersburg. Which one will we like better? Who knows. This is a really great trip and we want to thank you again!

NORWAY IN A NUTSHELL
The trip was excellent and did exactly what it said on the tin 'Norway in a Nutshell'. All the arrangments were excellent.
MR MOORE, NORWAY TAILOR-MADE TOUR, AUGUST 2013
TRANSNISTRA WAS THE MOST UNUSUAL
I had a really good time. My tour of Chisinau was led by Christina and Vladimir and they did a great job. The wineries and the monasteries fun. And, of course, Transnistra was the most unusual. I have been to both the Soviet Union and Russia, and this was really a step back in time.
MRS DERINGER, MOLDOVA PRIVATE TOUR, MAY 2016
JUST TO LET YOU KNOW WE HAD A GREAT HOLIDAY
Hi Phil Just to let you know we had a great holiday. All the guides were excellent very knowledgeable and friendly. The hotels were very good and all in convenient positions. Overall had a great time and hope to use Baltic Holidays again. Thank Sally for her help. With Thanks.
J. PRIESTLEY, ROMANIA & THE BALTIC STATES, OCTOBER 2016
MORE LIKE A FRIEND THAN A GUIDE
The organisation of our trip was very professional and ran like clockwork. It was great to have everything organised and to not worry about driving or finding places of interest. We met some lovely tour guides especially Vicky in Palanga who was a fantastic host and felt more like a friend than a guide. We were pleasantly impressed by the standards of Eastern Europe and enjoyed the food and reasonable prices too. We would definitely recommend the baltics to our friends. In fact our 22 year old son said we could even leave him in Lithuania!

GREAT TO KNOW WE COULD CONTACT JURGA AT ANY TIME
Thanks we had a great trip, the hotels you picked for us were lovely, good locations and interesting buildings. The guide in Helsinki was really nice and took us to some places that we would not have thought of, including the university library building. Most of all it was great to know we could contact Jurga at any time so I would like to especially thank her for her help.

WE WOULD CERTAINLY RECOMMEND VISITING MOLDOVA
It is indeed now sometime since we arrived back from our holiday in Moldova but we still have very fond memories of the trip. My wife was especially touched by Vladimir's young daughter presenting her with a picture which she had painted as a birthday gift. The hotel in Chisinau was excellent and lived up to its 5 star rating. Chisinau has many interesting places to see and we enjoyed going around the city by the local trams and buses. Other highlights were the visit to the Milesti Mici wine cellars and the fascinating trip to Transnistra. All the arrangements worked well and we would certainly recommend visiting Moldova to people who would like to gosomewhere different and interesting and to use Baltic Holidays to do so.

THE EXPERTS FOR A TAILOR MADE TRIP TO THIS FASCINATING PART OF THE WORLD
Baltic Holidays did a first class job for us from start to finish. The care and attention with which they planned the trip was outstanding. They were highly flexible to our professional photography needs. Each of the guides went beyond the call of duty in helping us and we saw some extraordinary off the beaten track events and people. They are the experts for a tailor made trip to this fascinating part of the world.

VERY HAPPY WITH THE WAY YOU HAD ORGANISED OUR HOLIDAY
Dear Sarah, We really enjoyed ourselves. Helsinki and Tallinn are both great places to visit in very different ways. We loved the laid back atmosphere in Helsinki and walking by the sea right by the city centre. Tallinn is stunningly beautiful. Every corner you go round brings another amazing view. We were very happy with the way you had organised our holiday. The hotels were both excellent and all the pick ups were right on time. All in all we had a great time and enjoyed it from start to finish.

THEY WERE VERY KIND AND MADE OUR TOUR VERY SPECIAL
We liked very much our tour! I would like to tell you that we liked specially the guides from Ukraine, Belarus, Kaliningrad and Vilnius. They were very kind and made our tour very special. In general, we liked all the hotels! Thanks a lot!

HATS OFF TO BALTIC HOLIDAYS. YOU GAVE US A TRIP OF A LIFETIME.
Our trip was superb, Philip. As you well know, before the trip I customized it quite a bit. Your team was terrific in accommodating that customization. The result was a unique and spectacular trip. I could go on at great length to tell you how much we enjoyed this trip but, instead, will save time by simply telling you that Denise and I have traveled quite extensively and we both agreed that this was one of our favorite trips ever. That is in large part due to your team'shard work before we landed and once we were 'in country'. The Baltics trip was the first time that we traveled on our own but used a tour company to help plan and then fully support the trip. You have now spoiled - and ruined - us. Hats off to Baltic Holidays. You gave us a trip of a lifetime.

WE HAVE LEARNT SO MUCH ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE FIVE COUNTRIES
Dear Jurga, We arrived home safe and sound on Saturday afternoon and, now, our minds are full of wonderful memories of a very enjoyable trip. Thank you very much for organising such a comprehensive holiday for us. Everything went like clockwork: guides were excellent, erudite and solicitous and good travelling companions, excellent selection of hotels -a faultless holiday. We have learnt so much about the history of the five countries and have met many friendly and welcoming people. Once again thank you for all your work.
MR CYSTER, GRAND BALTIC PRIVATE TOUR (VILNIUS, RIGA, TALLINN, HELSINKI, ST PETERSBURG, MOSCOW), SEPTEMBER 2017
WE WILL CERTAINLY BE BOOKING THROUGH BALTIC HOLIDAYS AGAIN
We had the most wonderful holiday. It was brilliantly organised for us from start to finish. What can I say - we loved everything! It's not easy to meet the needs of 6 people ages 14 and up, but our holiday did just that. All the accommodation was wonderful... The trips were fantastic. I was a little unsure what we would get from a walking tour in Vilnius as I'd seen some of the main sights on my last visit, but it was great! The rest of our daytrips, including visits to Trakai, Hill of Crosses, and the Curonian Spit were with Linas, our lovely guide. We were so well looked after. He did everything possible give us a good experience of the country, especially when we took a day trip to the region where our family used to live, helping us to explore our connections to the area. The only problem with the trip is that it has left us so desperately wanting to return to Lithuania again - there is still so much to see and explore! It may take a little while to get back there but we will certainly be booking through Baltic Holidays again when we do. Sending best wishes to all of the lovely Baltic Holidays team, and thank you for a truly memorable holiday.

WE HAD AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL TIME.
We had an absolutely wonderful time. It exceeded our expectations, helped by good weather and the absence of crowds. I'mso glad I read that article in The Guardian which prompted me to call you. We particularly loved the day in the canoe and on the bog, the cookery class, the lovely guide in Tallinn and being left on our own to walk and cycle. Thank you all so much!
PHILIPPA, TAILOR-MADE TOUR OF ESTONIA, SEPTEMBER 2017
BALTIC HOLIDAYS MET EVERY NEED AND EXPECTATION!
We enjoy the ease of first-class packaged holidays but prefer traveling independently and on our own agenda with assistance as required. In this regard Baltic Holidays met every need and expectation! Once we set our desireddestinations and dates, Baltic Holidays put together the most suitable hotels, booked expert drivers, and arranged for top notch guides in each city. Everything worked like clockwork. We were able to sit back and enjoy the trip without ever worrying about transportation, payments, or hotel arrangements.

Sally, thank you for all the work you did to make our trip so remarkable---the guides were exceptional, the driving excellent, the hotels perfectly located and comfy and the opera seats perfect---what a trip!!---we especially liked Ben in Vilnius for his energy, willingness to answer all questions and ability to show us so much in a short time---also Inga in Riga for her flexibility, quick pace and deep knowledge of the culture and architecture--and also Aldis for his willingness to go above the expected, to share stories of his beloved Latvia, to help us understand the history of his country and the beauty of it---and Ivo for helping us understand manor life and that history, for his stories about life in Estonia, for going beyond in making sure we saw more of Tallinn on our way back---thanks for choosing everything with such care---we loved the countries.

LOVED GETTING OUT AND EXPLORING THE COUNTRYSIDE
The hotels in Budapest and Prague were excellent.We were upgraded at the Continental Hotel Budapest. The drivers who picked us up and delivered us to our hotels or to the airport were on time and excellent. The guide in Budapest was also excellent.The city tour was informative and the two days (Danube Bend Private Day Trip and the Godollo and Lazar Equestrian Park Private Day Tour) were well organized.The two different guides we had in Prague were also excellent (walking tour, Cesky Krumlov Private Day Trip and Kutna Hora Private Day Trip). Sally you did an excellent job of organizing our trip to this fascinating part of the world. We loved learning about the complicated history of these two countries and loved getting out and exploring the country side. We are most grateful for all you did to make this trip memorable. Best wishes to you and your staff and hopethat you continue your excellent work!!!

THE ORGANISATION WAS OUTSTANDING
We want to say how much we enjoyed the whole trip.The organisation was outstanding and everything went just as was planned.Of course being our first visit, everything we saw was a completely new experienceso we have many happy memories to look back on, with each capital city quite different to the other two, as we found when going to Riga from Vilnius and then to Tallin. Tartu was a charming little town too and we were glad we included a cross-country trip. The hotels were excellent and overall there is nothing at all we could suggest needed improvement. We are so glad and grateful that we were finally able to make the trip after the disappointment in April. Our sincere thanks to everyone who was involved in providing us with a truly memorable experience.
BRIAN & SUE HOLLEY, NEW ZEALAND, SEPTEMBER 2017
EVERY ASPECT OF THE HOLIDAY WORKED WELL
I would like to thank Baltic Holidays for the well organised holiday that was organised for my friend and I in August. We visited St Petersburg, Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. Every aspect of the holiday worked well. Our accommodation was very comfortable, our guides informative and our drivers excellent. All staff were very punctual and polite. The places we were shown by our guides gave us a very good understanding of the countries we visited. My heartfelt thanks to Baltic Holidays.
