A great holiday in Lithuania organised by Baltic Holidays

Just returned home from a great holiday in Lithuania organised by Baltic Holidays. From the moment we arrived, everything ran like clockwork. Excellent guiding, comfortable hotels and a good balance between organised outings and self guided walking. Lithuania is a fantastic destination and I would encourage people to visit - whatever your interests - history, art, music, trekking....; there will be something there for you.
