The itinerary was perfect, containing lots of contrast, varied sight-seeing and some lovely restful days
Just to say 'Thank you' for arranging such a truly memorable holiday for us. The itinerary was perfect, containing lots of contrast, varied sight-seeing and some lovely restful days at the manor house, just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful setting. The hotels were good and especially well located in Riga and Jurmala, but the manor house was something special. I don't think we had ever before stayed anywhere so peaceful. Our driver, Martinas, played a very significant part in our holiday. He was professional, flexible, friendly and knowledgeable. We both learned a great deal from his fascinating stories about his and his family's experiences and about life in Latvia today. We came to regard him as a friend and we were sorry to say goodbye to him. Aldis, who was with us for one day was also very kind and helpful. So, 'Well done!' Baltic Holidays. We look forward to booking with you again.
