Really nice mix of different experiences, ably led by our superb tour leader Jolita.
Whilst the cities were fascinating, with some beautiful architecture, I think my favourite aspect was walking the peat bog.
The group leader was friendly and informative and very patient with our questions!
Trip notes suggested it rarely rains in summer - the latter half of August was however quite wet so go prepared with waterproofs!
An enjoyable and informative trip. It was varied and there was a good balance between city, town and country. Each day had something of interest. The guides were excellent. The only real improvements I would suggest would be to lengthen the stay in Tallinn - a second day is definitely necessary - and to change the first hotel in Tallinn which was a disappointment. A little more walking in the National Parks would also be welcome.
There were a number, particularly in the three capitals which were each fascinating for different reasons. The museums of occupation and genocide victims, whilst harrowing, are a must. Equally the restored Art Nouveau buildings in Riga are nothing short of amazing. Trakai castle is also stunning.
She was very good indeed. I thought she got the balance just right between looking after us and leaving us to our own devices. She was very caring and well informed, with a good breadth of knowledge, and her English was excellent.
A very enjoyable trip. Well organised, as usual with Exodus, well led, surprisingly hot weather (30+ degrees) and three very interesting counties. We visited several fascinating cities, and heard a lot about the dark days of soviet rule, the struggle for independence, and its eventual achievement in 1991.
Several highlights: the beautiful cities of Tallinn and Riga, the Curonian Spit, Trakai castle, a cold war nuclear weapons site, the "hill of crosses", and lots of churches!
Nice lady, from Lithuania. She didn't know much about Estonia or Latvia so we had (very good) local guides, but when we got to her home city of Vilnius there was no stopping her!
Would have liked something slightly more active in among the sightseeing - for example a day of walks in the Curonian Spit would have been pleasant. But overall a very worthwhile trip.
