- This is a fabulous trip with so many unexpected delights. The scenery is fabulous and the amount of open space is unbelievable. The contrast of open countryside, city/urban environments and the old towns and added into that is the conflict and turbulent history of the whole area that just made the whole trip incredibly interesting. Fabulous castles, lakes, sand dunes, the Baltic Sea it was all breath-taking. The fact that our local guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the transformation from communism to being independent and then part of the European Union and NATO gave us a fascinating insight to the real lives of the people who live in the three countries.Egle is an exceptional tour leader. She is passionate about the Baltic States and has an incredible knowledge of the history and changes in the region but can also talk in a well informed way about the differences between the countries. She also had a great sense of the whole area including the shared sense of humour and jokes about how each of the countries see each other.
