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 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.

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.

WE WILL CERTAINLY BE BOOKING THROUGH BALTIC HOLIDAYS AGAIN

We had the most wonderful holiday. It was brilliantly organised for us from start to finish. What can I say - we loved everything! It's not easy to meet the needs of 6 people ages 14 and up, but our holiday did just that. All the accommodation was wonderful... The trips were fantastic. I was a little unsure what we would get from a walking tour in Vilnius as I'd seen some of the main sights on my last visit, but it was great! The rest of our daytrips, including visits to Trakai, Hill of Crosses, and the Curonian Spit were with Linas, our lovely guide. We were so well looked after. He did everything possible give us a good experience of the country, especially when we took a day trip to the region where our family used to live, helping us to explore our connections to the area. The only problem with the trip is that it has left us so desperately wanting to return to Lithuania again - there is still so much to see and explore! It may take a little while to get back there but we will certainly be booking through Baltic Holidays again when we do. Sending best wishes to all of the lovely Baltic Holidays team, and thank you for a truly memorable holiday.

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 desireddestinations 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.

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 experienceso 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 Tallin. 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


WE REALLY LOVE THE WHOLE TRIP – BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY

Thanks for your warmest escort in Vilnius and Kaunas, it has been a wonderful time for me, Sam and Tai. You and your expertise team like – Cyrus & Vytaute have keep us informed that Lithuanians are sincere and courtesy to make friends... The sightseeing in KGB Museum, 9th Fort and Cold War Museum let our visions open wide that we seems to be the “Pioneer” to share our Lithuania’s experience amongst our peers group. We really love the whole trip – Between Shades of Gray, not to mention the accommodation, heritage sites and great food.

MRS WONG, BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY PRIVATE TOUR, MAY 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.


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!

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.
