"I enjoyed the tour endlessly. My main objective was to see Tallinn and I wasn't disillusioned. My only feel sorry is that we didn't spend more time in and about Tallinn. I also enjoyed Lithuania and Latvia."

TravelinBaltics company planned the perfect trip for us. We decided to go to Baltic tour, visit 4 Baltic countries. I am satisfied that we made the right decision. We would like to do and see, and the route and description that was expressly what we wanted. We were only in Baltic states for 10 days, but we experienced so many! We had never been to Baltics before. From the nice hotel accommodations and tasty food, to the breathtaking sightseeing and culture, this was really vacation. From the hearts, thank you !Paula (Italy)

I really liked seeing the various Baltic countries each is separate but they share a history. The buildings in Riga are wonderful, Estonia is such a beautiful town, Lithuania is green and nature country. The Helsinkivisit was lots of fun. I have 100% belief in this company-Travelinbltics, and would strongly recommend travellers to put themselves in their professional hands.
