TRAVEL COMPANIES LIKE YOURS ARE A REAL FIND.
Hi Phil and Jurga, We want to thank-you and all the guides, drivers etc. for organising such an amazing and unforgettable trip for us. We had a brilliant time and came home with a completely different and very positive perspective of the Baltic States and Finland. We found every city we visited absolutely fascinating and simply could not pick a favourite. It is hard to pick a highlight, but one of them would have to be the local guides and the drivers who took us for our day outings and did the transfers. Without exception, they were first class. Their passion for their country and willingness to talk about their lives and experiences and, as an example, the impact the Soviet occupation had on them and their families, really brought each country to life and helped us understand a little of what it must have been like then. We were also so impressed with all the paperwork and vouchers we received and know a lot of organisation went on behind the scenes. It all went like clockwork and we were nothing but impressed by your efficiency. Thanks again for a super holiday. We would like to visit St Petersburg and Russia at some point in the future and would have no hesitation in using you again to organise the trip.
BESPOKE PRIVATE BALTIC TOUR, MRS VARLEY, SEPTEMBER 2019
A WONDERFUL TRAVEL/LEARNING EXPERIENCE VISITING LITHUANIAN, LATVIA AND ESTONIA!
To the Baltic Holidays Team, we want to express our heartfelt thanks for a wonderful travel/learning experience visiting Lithuanian, Latvia and Estonia! The quality of the guides is exceptional! Each one brought knowledge, passion, pride of their country with enthusiasm and excitement about sharing with us. Their communication skills, friendliness and willingness to share their family stories as related to their countries history of occupation and freedom. This one on one interaction was the highlight of our trip! The itinerary was just right for us with a nice mix of guided versus independent time. The planning team at Baltic Holidays were most helpful from start to finish. We appreciate the suggested itineraries, flexibility of dates and response to emails in timely manner. This trip exceeding our expectations!! Thank you!!
PRIVATE TOUR OF THE BALTIC CAPITALS, S SHULZ & R PERRY, JUNE 2019
WITHOUT DOUBT THE FINEST TOUR COMPANY I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED
They put together an amazing, personalized 1 month tour of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. They drove me to the capitals of each and also to 3 of their incredible beach resorts on the Baltic Sea. There were a lot of moving parts on this tour and it ran like clockwork and any minor hiccup was remedied immediately. I have traveled the world and they are without doubt the finest tour company I have ever encountered and I will be using them soon for a tour of Russia and Ukraine. The staff is terrific and great fun to work with. They go way out of their way to create a flawless experience. Kudos to Jurga, Sarah and Linas for all their amazing work and kindness. If you want to tour the Baltic States, make sure your first call is to Baltic Holidays!!
TAILOR-MADE BALTIC TOUR, MR FRESTON, AUGUST 2018
THANK YOU FOR PUTTING TOGETHER SUCH AN INTERESTING AND VARIED PROGRAMME.
We enjoyed a really wonderful trip. The itinerary was great, and the hotels very well positioned in the towns, and very comfortable. Thank you for putting together such an interesting and varied programme. We had the pleasure of being shown the sights by some marvellous guides. All very passionate about their interests, and very interesting. Their English was extremely fluent, and their knowledge, second to none. We would certainly use your company in the future and recommend your service to our friends.
BALTIC CAPITALS & HELSINKI PRIVATE TOUR, MR & MRS JAMES, OCTOBER 2018
THIS IS THE SIGN OF AN EXCELLENT WELL PREPARED TOUR OPERATOR.
In Minsk our guide Helen was spectacular. She was very informative and accommodated changes as we went along. It was a real treat to visit her parents and their dacha. Our guide in Palanga was Vytaute and she was probably the best guide we have had in the world. She was lively, extremely informative, made changes and recommended changes as we went along. We had dinner at her parents restaurant. This was a real treat and we enjoyed the experience as well as meeting and dining with her parents. This is what we really like. We like restaurants with no tourists. The hotel choices were outstanding and all of our guides were superb. The guides were knowledgable, informative and accommodating. They wanted to make sure we had a good experience and learned about their country/city. Not many recommendations for improvement. This is the sign of an excellent well prepared tour operator. You were able to provide us with a memorable trip.
BELARUS & BALTIC TAILOR-MADE PRIVATE TOUR, THE TUCKER GROUP OF FRIENDS, JUNE 2018
THANK YOU FOR ONE OF THE BEST HOLIDAYS WE HAVE EVER HAD (AND WE HAVE HAD A FEW!)
Thank you so much for putting together a top notch experience. Please can you pass on our appreciation to Jurga too. Everything went smoothly. The itinerary was spot on, there was something fantastic to see on the days we were on the move and we never felt the journeys were too long. Thank you for one of the best holidays we have ever had (and we have had a few!)
HEMSLEY GROUP, TAILOR MADE SELF-DRIVE TOUR OF THE BALTICS, MAY 2018
THE STAFF AT BALTIC HOLIDAYS ARE PROFESSIONAL, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXCEEDINGLY FLEXIBLE
My husband and I worked with the exceptional staff at Baltic Holidays to plan two remarkable tailor-made vacations: One to Russia, Finland and Estonia, the other to Eastern Europe visiting Bucharest, Budapest and Prague. The accommodations were perfect and located in convenient places in the cities we visited. The guides we had for day trips both in and out of the cities were knowledgeable, smart and each and everyone went out of their way to make our visit wonderful. We were warmly greeted at the airport and bus stations with staff that took us to our hotels and delivered us back on time and in comfort. Baltic Holidays went the extra mile to help us get tickets to concerts, operas and even the Moscow Circus. But best of all the staff at Baltic Holidays are professional, knowledgeable and exceedingly flexible. We spend lots of time communicating on e-mail about different trip options until we got our plans just right. We feel like the staff are friends now and look forward to working with them again on our next adventure.

THE EXPERTS FOR A TAILOR MADE TRIP TO THIS FASCINATING PART OF THE WORLD
Baltic Holidays did a first class job for us from start to finish. The care and attention with which they planned the trip was outstanding. They were highly flexible to our professional photography needs. Each of the guides went beyond the call of duty in helping us and we saw some extraordinary off the beaten track events and people. They are the experts for a tailor made trip to this fascinating part of the world.
MR J STRACHAN, TAILOR-MADE PHOTOGRAPHY TOUR OF THE BALTIC STATES, JULY 2017
HATS OFF TO BALTIC HOLIDAYS. YOU GAVE US A TRIP OF A LIFETIME.
Our trip was superb, Philip. As you well know, before the trip I customized it quite a bit. Your team was terrific in accommodating that customization. The result was a unique and spectacular trip. I could go on at great length to tell you how much we enjoyed this trip but, instead, will save time by simply telling you that Denise and I have traveled quite extensively and we both agreed that this was one of our favorite trips ever. That is in large part due to your team's hard work before we landed and once we were in country. The Baltics trip was the first time that we traveled on our own but used a tour company to help plan and then fully support the trip. You have now spoiled - and ruined - us. Hats off to Baltic Holidays. You gave us a trip of a lifetime.
MR & MRS SERGESKETTER, TAILOR-MADE TOUR OF THE BALTIC CAPITALS, KALININGRAD & BELARUS, JULY 2017
WE HAVE LEARNT SO MUCH ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE FIVE COUNTRIES
Dear Jurga, We arrived home safe and sound on Saturday afternoon and, now, our minds are full of wonderful memories of a very enjoyable trip. Thank you very much for organising such a comprehensive holiday for us. Everything went like clockwork: guides were excellent, erudite and solicitous and good travelling companions, excellent selection of hotels -a faultless holiday. We have learnt so much about the history of the five countries and have met many friendly and welcoming people. Once again thank you for all your work.
MR CYSTER, GRAND BALTIC PRIVATE TOUR (VILNIUS, RIGA, TALLINN, HELSINKI, ST PETERSBURG, MOSCOW), SEPTEMBER 2017
WE HAD AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL TIME.
We had an absolutely wonderful time. It exceeded our expectations, helped by good weather and the absence of crowds. I am so glad I read that article in The Guardian which prompted me to call you. We particularly loved the day in the canoe and on the bog, the cookery class, the lovely guide in Tallinn and being left on our own to walk and cycle. Thank you all so much!
PHILIPPA, TAILOR-MADE TOUR OF ESTONIA, SEPTEMBER 2017
BALTIC HOLIDAYS MET EVERY NEED AND EXPECTATION!
We enjoy the ease of first-class packaged holidays but prefer traveling independently and on our own agenda with assistance as required. In this regard Baltic Holidays met every need and expectation! Once we set our desired destinations and dates, Baltic Holidays put together the most suitable hotels, booked expert drivers, and arranged for top notch guides in each city. Everything worked like clockwork. We were able to sit back and enjoy the trip without ever worrying about transportation, payments, or hotel arrangements.
MR & MRS WHITE, TAILOR-MADE PRIVATE BALTIC CAPITALS TOUR, SEPTEMBER 2017
THE GUIDES WERE EXCEPTIONAL, THE DRIVING EXCELLENT, THE HOTELS PERFECTLY LOCATED
Sally, thank you for all the work you did to make our trip so remarkable---the guides were exceptional, the driving excellent, the hotels perfectly located and comfy and the opera seats perfect---what a trip!!---we especially liked Ben in Vilnius for his energy, willingness to answer all questions and ability to show us so much in a short time---also Inga in Riga for her flexibility, quick pace and deep knowledge of the culture and architecture--and also Aldis for his willingness to go above the expected, to share stories of his beloved Latvia, to help us understand the history of his country and the beauty of it---and Ivo for helping us understand manor life and that history, for his stories about life in Estonia, for going beyond in making sure we saw more of Tallinn on our way back---thanks for choosing everything with such care---we loved the countries.
HEIDI FIELDS GROUP OF 6 FRIENDS, BALTIC CAPITALS TAILOR-MADE TOUR, OCTOBER 2017
THE ORGANISATION WAS OUTSTANDING
We want to say how much we enjoyed the whole trip. The organisation was outstanding and everything went just as was planned. Of course being our first visit, everything we saw was a completely new experience so we have many happy memories to look back on, with each capital city quite different to the other two, as we found when going to Riga from Vilnius and then to Tallinn. Tartu was a charming little town too and we were glad we included a cross-country trip. The hotels were excellent and overall there is nothing at all we could suggest needed improvement. We are so glad and grateful that we were finally able to make the trip after the disappointment in April. Our sincere thanks to everyone who was involved in providing us with a truly memorable experience.
BRIAN & SUE HOLLEY, NEW ZEALAND, SEPTEMBER 2017
YOU DID A VERY GOOD JOB OF SETTING THIS UP, DIRECTING US TO INTERESTING AND VARIED PLACES
Our trip went very well. Everything was a highlight but I think the best part were the guides. They were so knowledgeable, friendly, willing to answer all our questions. Marina would be my best friend if I lived in Finland. Ivo, Erlens, and, Linas were great too. The bike tour guides were fantastic also. All of them were passionate about their country and very knowledgeable about what we were seeing. Through them we felt we got to know the country, the history, the people and them too. Everyone was precisely on time. I think you did a very good job of setting this up, directing us to interesting and varied places: a hike through the bog, castles and palaces, cute towns, etc. The hotels were great. Friendly staff and so very well located. Again, thank you for making this trip so wonderful. I'd easily go on another trip with you.
TAILOR-MADE BALTIC CAPITALS TOUR, THE BELLS, AUGUST 2019
OUR TRIP WAS GREAT.
Hi Phil, Our trip was great. Everything we wanted and expected. We were met at exactly the stated times. Ivo was a fantastic guide, but Mati who drove us to Tartu was excellent. He went out of his way to find the cemetery I was looking for. This was the main reason for our trip. Overall we were very satisfied.
ESTONIA FAMILY HERITAGE TOUR, MS BARNES, SEPTEMBER 2019
HOW IMPRESSED WE WERE WITH THE ORGANISATION OF OUR TRIP
We had a fantastic holiday and everything went very smoothly. We were also lucky enough, albeit through a vehicle fault, to meet up with Jurga. Her husband was our guide on the day out in Riga but unfortunately the car developed a problem. Jurga came out with another vehicle. It was great to meet her having had so many e-mail conversations. It was good to be able to say how impressed we were with the organisation of our trip. It was really well put together and all of the guides were very good and knowledgeable. Bearing in mind the length of time we spent with them we had no hitches. We learnt a lot from the trip and enjoyed hearing the guides' stories.
ST PETERSBURG & BALTIC CAPITALS PRIVATE TOUR, THE LANGANS, AUGUST 2019
EVERY ONE OF OUR DRIVERS AND GUIDES EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS.
We appreciated all your good advice on the itinerary. It was a great idea that we go to St. Petersburg via Helsinki (a very cool city!)...the ferry and high-speed train were efficient and quite comfortable. The choice of hotels suited us perfectly...thanks for placing us so centrally in each city. The hotel in Tallinn was the most luxurious, but even at the more modest places in Vilnius and Riga, the location and the warm and helpful hotel staff made our stays delightful. And the manor house was remarkable. Every one of our drivers and guides exceeded our expectations. The walking tours were informative, meaningful, and great fun.
BESPOKE BALTIC CAPITALS PLUS HELSINKI & ST PETERSBURG, MS EMORY, SEPTEMBER 2019
OUR WONDERFUL TRIP TO THE BALTICS AND ST PETERSBURG
At last I am getting back on our wonderful trip to the Baltics and St. P. It all went great. We particularly enjoyed and were impressed by Linas in Lithuania. He's an endless source of info and a lot of fun. Jurga was terrific and we did make a requested last minute change in St P which she handled with great efficiency. I think her management skills, task and choices were perfect for us in the Baltics. She is a consummate professional. So in closing on this rambling feedback, your company did not disappoint and I will recommend you to anyone I know who plans to visit the Baltics. I will also recommend the Baltics.
BALTIC CAPITALS & ST PETERSBURG PRIVATE TOUR, THE COOKES, SEPTEMBER 2019
EXCELLENT, WELL BALANCED ITINERARY
In summary, we would like to add that we described our Scandinavian package as EXCELLENT, well BALANCED itinerary and especially the variety of hotels, means of transportation, guides, transfer which were all FLAWLESSLY arranged. After 35 days on the road, we had no desire to terminate the holiday.
SCANDINAVIAN CAPITALS PRIVATE TOUR, MR & MRS WHITE, SEPTEMBER 2019
WE DID A LOT OF LAST MINUTE ADJUSTMENTS AND OFF THE BEATEN PATH TRIPS THAT WERE GREAT.
The trip was excellent!! Baltic Holidays did a wonderful job and I would definitely reach out to them again, at some point I will be planning a trip to Russia. The guides were great and very flexible. I had been traveling for 4 weeks by the time my trip started so I had seen my fill of churches and castles, so we did a lot of last minute adjustments and off the beaten path trips that were great. I really enjoyed the trip, Sarah.
BESPOKE TOUR OF BELARUS, LITHUANIA, LATVIA & ESTONIA, MR J MCS, OCTOBER 2019
THANK YOU AND THE TEAM AT BALTIC HOLIDAYS FOR THE GREAT PROGRAMME, AS WELL AS FOR YOUR CARE AND ATTENTIVENESS
We had a wonderful tour last month and I'd like to thank you and the team at Baltic Holidays for the great programme, as well as for your care and attentiveness. I've posted the following review on TripAdvisor a few moments ago: We have recently returned from a two-week tour of the Baltics, combining the Baltic Capitals Private Tour with stays in Kaunas and Palanga at the end, and we can thoroughly recommend Baltic Holidays to others thinking of visiting the region. The itinerary was well thought through and was ideal for a first holiday in the three countries. The accommodation was well chosen and centrally located, which made it easy to explore each of the cities. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and enabled us to discover many great places that we would never have found on our own. We especially enjoyed the wonderful restaurants in each of the cities that we visited. Overall we had a great holiday and would like to thank Phil and the team at Baltic Holidays.
TAILOR-MADE BALTIC TOUR, MR & MRS HAGARD, AUGUST 2018
BESPOKE BALTIC TOUR - 'THE TRIP WAS EXCELLENT!'
The trip was excellent. All your arrangements worked like clockwork, and we were well spoiled. The guides were all delightful in their own different ways, especially Linas and Aldis. I was relatively surprised to find how modern looking, clean and civilised all the States were; and the roads are a damned sight better than ours. People everywhere were delightful. Altogether a great trip, for which many thanks. Keeping three well travelled old guys happy is not an easy task.
THREE WELL TRAVELLED OLD GUYS, BALTIC TAILOR-MADE TOUR, JUNE 2018
THE GUIDES WE HAD WERE EXCEPTIONAL!
The guides we had were exceptional! Kertu - told us so much about living in Communist times and brought the whole city to life. Inga, in Riga, really knows about architecture as she is working on her PH.D in that field. Thank you or someone for Ieva! We had a great time talking about nature, schools, etc. So, in all, everyone one was well or over-qualified to talk with us about cities, countries, communism, cooking and other stuff! Oh, I forgot Vickie, who took us to the Curonian Spit. What a fun, upbeat person! She brought a picnic lunch for us so we could sit and enjoy it on the hilltop above Nida, where the German writer's home is located.
MR & MRS SNYDER, TAILOR-MADE BALTIC PRIVATE TOUR, JUNE 2018
BALTIC CHRISTMAS MARKETS - VILNIUS, RIGA & TALLINN
My daughter Iona and I have to say how very much we enjoyed the trip - everything seemed to have gone very smoothly. All the three guides were fantastic too. We loved all the walks in each cities - simply perfect - pace, time and seeing things! We have recommended this trip and the company to all our family and friends.
PADDEN-DUNCAN FAMILY, BALTIC CHRISTMAS MARKETS TOUR, DECEMBER 2018
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!
THE WISE FAMILY, ESTONIA FAMILY HOLIDAY, APRIL 2019
TALLINN & HELSINKI - VARIED & INTERESTING
We would like to thank you and your team for organising a very successful holiday, everything worked exactly as the itinerary, varied and interesting, even the weather was good through the whole week, so thank you very much.
OCKWELL & FRIENDS, TALLINN & HELSINKI PRIVATE TOUR, AUGUST 2018
ALL OUR GUIDES/DRIVERS WERE GOOD, FRIENDLY AND INFORMATIVE
We really enjoyed the trip to the Baltics and had a great time. We want to thank you and Jurga for all the contact, suggestions and responses to questions/enquiries/etc. We thought all our guides/drivers were good, friendly and informative. We would be happy to recommend Baltic Holidays to prospective clients. The itinerary was great and we appreciated the suggestions from your company as we finalised our arrangements. We also appreciated that there is a company that offers tours in this part of the world during a time of the year when a lot of other companies don't offer any options.
MOSCOW & ST PETERSBURG PRIVATE TOUR
I wanted to let you know how nicely everything worked out. We will have a hard time deciding between Moscow and St Petersburg. Which one will we like better? Who knows. This is a really great trip and we want to thank you again!
JANE & TONY, MOSCOW & ST PETERSBURG, MAY 2018
MORE LIKE A FRIEND THAN A GUIDE
The organisation of our trip was very professional and ran like clockwork. It was great to have everything organised and to not worry about driving or finding places of interest. We met some lovely tour guides especially Vicky in Palanga who was a fantastic host and felt more like a friend than a guide. We were pleasantly impressed by the standards of Eastern Europe and enjoyed the food and reasonable prices too. We would definitely recommend the baltics to our friends. In fact our 22 year old son said we could even leave him in Lithuania!
THE LEVENE FAMILY, TAILOR-MADE PRIVATE TOUR OF THE BALTIC CAPITALS, JUNE 2017
GREAT TO KNOW WE COULD CONTACT JURGA AT ANY TIME
Thanks we had a great trip, the hotels you picked for us were lovely, good locations and interesting buildings. The guide in Helsinki was really nice and took us to some places that we would not have thought of, including the university library building. Most of all it was great to know we could contact Jurga at any time so I would like to especially thank her for her help.
THE FEIGHAN FAMILY, HELSINKI & ESTONIA PRIVATE TOUR, JULY 2017
VERY HAPPY WITH THE WAY YOU HAD ORGANISED OUR HOLIDAY
Dear Sarah, We really enjoyed ourselves. Helsinki and Tallinn are both great places to visit in very different ways. We loved the laid back atmosphere in Helsinki and walking by the sea right by the city centre. Tallinn is stunningly beautiful. Every corner you go round brings another amazing view. We were very happy with the way you had organised our holiday. The hotels were both excellent and all the pick ups were right on time. All in all we had a great time and enjoyed it from start to finish.
MR & MRS RHEAD, TAILOR-MADE TALLINN & HELSINKI TOUR, JULY 2017
EVERY ASPECT OF THE HOLIDAY WORKED WELL
I would like to thank Baltic Holidays for the well organised holiday that was organised for my friend and I in August. We visited St Petersburg, Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. Every aspect of the holiday worked well. Our accommodation was very comfortable, our guides informative and our drivers excellent. All staff were very punctual and polite. The places we were shown by our guides gave us a very good understanding of the countries we visited. My heartfelt thanks to Baltic Holidays.
