The guides were the real high spot of our travels and really made the trip.
I just want to thank you both for a fabulous introduction to all the countries that we visited. The people everywhere were incredibly friendly, and the towns and countryside were extremely interesting. The guides were the real high spot of our travels and really made the trip. Each one had a slightly different style, but each added to our understanding of the local culture and history, often with personal perspectives. The driver-guides - Linas, Normands, and Urmas - deserve special mention. They were truly outstanding and went out of their way to show us as much as possible. They really made the trip what it was. We will certainly recommend you to anyone we know who is travelling to Lithuania and the Baltic region. Thank you again.
