IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL TOUR, THE TOUR DIRECTOR AND DRIVER WERE EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND WENT BEYOND THEIR DUTIES TO HELP US. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM BOTH TO ANYBODY. I LOVED THEIR WAY TO MAKE THE TRIP A HAPPY AND A HISTORICAL ONE. THE TOUR DIRECTOR EXPLAINED ALL THE HISTORY OF EACH AND EVERY COUNTRY IN DETAIL.

By David M on Jul 21, 2018

This trip met and exceeded my expectations. I knew we would be spending a lot of time on the bus, but the bus was comfortable and we made frequent rest stops which helped break up the trip. Even though we spent a very short time in each city, I felt like we saw a lot in each place, and it was enough to give you a feeling for the flavor of each city and country. I went on all the extra excursions, and Highly recommend doing that, since you see and experience much more than you would on your own during your free time. Hotels met and exceeded my expectations, and breakfast buffets were always excellent. Our guide, Ellie,was wonderful--friendly, helpful and very informative.

By Dean F on May 05, 2018

Needed more detail on optional events as it was difficult to determine what the experience would include

By Shyr Shing N on May 05, 2018

Park Inn Alexanderplatz hotel in Berlin should provide a coffee pot to customer for making coffee. Kreutzwald hotel in Tallinn needs to improve the bath room to prevent customer's foot from bumping off shower bricks above the flat area.

By Rosita D on May 06, 2017

The hotel accommodation and breakfasts served were above our expectations. Though travel by motor coach from one country to the other takes most of the whole day, it is quite amazing to visit nine countries in 16 days.

By Aaron S on Oct 03, 2015

A subtle, nuanced and invigorating visceral journey/discovery of Past constructing Present! Cathartic moments include 'See'ne of Winter Palace (You will gasp with awe when you first see it!); Berlin ( vestiges of The Wall and the dichotomy of borders vs modernity!); and Riga (a Gem, resplendent)! Tour Director and Driver are Mountains!
