A note to say THANK YOU for arranging such an interesting and scenic tour! We enjoyed every place we visited and the guides were all top notch. Friendly and helpful. We enjoyed their company through our travels and sharing of their life stories if they experienced the Soviet occupation. This is something every person should hear and know about. It was so important and to see the resilience and positive outlook really was admirable. We take with us wonderful memories. It was a pleasure to travel with your guidance and support. We always felt well taken care of. Another nice feature for us was the free time component which we liked to explore , shop, go to the Spa etc...
