Tour of the Baltics
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
I was inspired by the spirit of the Lithuanians exemplified by the Hill of Crosses, the sculptures on the Hill of Witches and the work of the ARKA gallery in Vilnius that I visited independently.
What did you think of your group leader?
Jolita was practical, knowledgeable and usually good humored. She organised suitable restaurants for group meals and was at hand to assist individuals each evening if needed.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Try to travel a day before the tour begins as there is lots of interesting things to do in Tallinn. Bring an eye mask as some hotel rooms have roof windows without curtains/blinds Plan what you want to do, the official trip to Jurmala is for a half day only Bring clothes suitable for colder days If you wish to save money you can buy salads etc in the supermarkets some of which are located close to the hotels
Is there anything else you would like to add?
You do not need a guide book as you will be offered information through Jolita and the local guides. The guide in Riga was particularly good, she had a personal approach to the group.
