A Taste of The Baltics

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The walking tour of Riga, Latvia was excellent as it is architecturally a very nice city. Some of us went on a canal boat trip which is a must-do. Not only do you pass through a tranquil park but you get on the big river and pass under massive bridges.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our tour leader Jolita Auglyte was a rather bubbly Lithuanian who was quite knowledgeable. She had good organisational capabilities and kept the group of twenty together. She took us to very nice restaurants and was always at hand when required. Some of us came to like her very much.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Rain gear is a must! Euros are the best currency. Don't waste time trying to change Sterling Pounds. Atms are everywhere and easy to work as they are bilingual.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I wished I had extended my holiday with additional days at the start or at the end. An extension to Finland would have been ideal!
