Bravo Sarah for your and your team's excellent work.
You have three very satisfied Baltic Travelers so pleased with all the work you put into our itinerary. On the whole, everything was wonderful, all but one hotel was great, the ferry experience fun, all the guides were super, helpful, knowledgeable and so good about filling us in on sights and history. They helped find pharmacies, watch band replacements, suggested restaurants, adapted itineraries to meet our specific needs and were lovely companions and good drivers. Bravo Sarah for your and your team's excellent work. Thank you so much.
