This itinerary not only includes sightseeing tours of each city but also visits highlights including the Hill of Crosses, Rundale Palace in Latvia and the Estonian seaside resort of Pärnu. Ask a Regent Baltics Specialist for details about optional afternoon excursions to Trakai, Sigulda and Kadriorg Park and Palace.

Had a small problem with the evening meals but this was addressed with a full refund of full board payment - thank you! Apart from this I very much enjoyed this trip - the cities visited were very attractive and the hotels we stayed in first class.

Good value for money. Excellent guide in Tallinn
Local guides were excellent. The tour group was interesting - multi-national when I'd imagined it would all be British people, this added a different dimension to the holiday. Information and maps sent out from Regent Holidays were very helpful. It was good to be able to email Jurate with any queries.

This is our third Regent Holiday; it follows the same quality that we experienced on the previous holidays. We appreciated being met on arrival and take to our accommodation. The people in the field were very helpful and we experienced no problems. Thanks to your staff for making the whole experience possible.
