A really wonderful trip to Estonia (Estonia Winter Break)
We are back and home from our trip and just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and your team for organising a really wonderful trip to Estonia. We loved it all and are smitten with the country! All the drivers and guides were really great and made it such a well-organised, wonderful experience. Stina’s tour round Tallinn was fascinating and set us off on the right footing. Ivo was just great - full of great information and a very good driver (plus he managed not to laugh when I fell over kick-sledging..). Helen gave us a day to remember in Setomaa and we really could have spent longer there; Algis and Edu were great characters and really went out of their way to make our trip to Soomaa very memorable. Bog bouncing was the highlight of the trip! I think we were very lucky with the weather - just enough snow to create a beautiful scene as we were being driven around and cold enough to freeze the water on the fields for the kick sledding.
