Tailor-made Baltic tour (postponed due to pandemic)
Every aspect of our experience with Baltic Holidays from 2020 to the present including the planning of the trip to its implementation was terrific. We would not hesitate to travel again with Baltic Holidays. We are always open to exciting recommendations.

Estonia was fantastic, so many thanks to you and your staff
Estonia was fantastic, so many thanks to you and your staff (particularly Jurga) for arranging everything for us. Many highlights but in particular the cookery class at Mer Mer was unique (our guide Ivo took the recipes for the salmon and duck dishes we made - appreciate if you could ask him to forward on please?); the hotels were very very good, dinner at the Tchaikovsky was an unforgettable experience and the bog walking and canoeing in Soomaa was great fun. The dawn and evening safaris they run there to watch the beavers looked really good, albeit April would be a cold month to do that in. Tallinn was also a lovely city to spend a couple of days and nice to see it prior to tourist season. All the guides were excellent too. Our 7 yr old daughter had a fab time too!
