Itinerary

Day 1

Tallinn

Upon arrival at Tallinn airport you will be met and transferred to our hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure to explore Tallinn. On arrival please ask at the reception for information on when the pre departure meeting will be held.
Overnight: Tallinn

Days 2-3

Riga

Tallinn - Riga. This morning we travel by bus to Riga. Riga is more than 800 years old and its clever blend of medieval centre and modern city infrastructure will enchant you. The UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Town has its own particular charm, while the city is also famous for its fascinating Art Nouveau architectural heritage which you can discover as you wander the streets of this ‘Paris of the East'. A must-do is a visit to Riga's most famous Gothic church, St Peter's, thought to be about 800 years old. Its famous spire has been rebuilt three times in the same form since 1667, with its latest rebuild completed in 1973. Climb the spire and enjoy spectacular views over the city.
Overnight: Riga  |  Breakfast x 2

Days 4-5

Vilnius

Riga - Vilnius. Today we depart Latvia and head for our third country of the tour - Lithuania. The capital Vilnius boasts an attractive baroque Old Town that is the largest in Eastern Europe and is praised as the 'New Prague'. Located on the edge of the Neris River, with its pine covered hills, friendly people, and blend of old and new, this is a picturesque city well worth exploring. You will have time to explore the main sights of the city including Gediminas Castle on the top of Gediminas Hill and Cathedral Square at the base of the hill, which is dominated by Vilnius Cathedral and its 57 metre-tall belfry.

On day 5 we visit the KGB Museum in the city centre. Later on while you’re exploring the square between the cathedral and the tower you should hunt for the secret stebuklas (miracle) tile. The tile marks the southern end of the 2 million person, 650 kilometre long human chain between Tallinn and Vilnius, which was formed in protest against Soviet occupation in 1989. Local legend has it that if you find the pretty mosaic-covered tile you should stand on it and turn around three times clockwise while making a wish, which shall then be granted.
Overnight: Vilnius  |  Breakfast x 2

Day 6

Warsaw

Vilnius - Warsaw. Departing Lithuania we travel across to neighbouring Poland. Warsaw, Poland's capital, has been revitalised as a tourist destination. The city was almost entirely destroyed in World War II but a lot of effort has gone into its rebuilding. Since the fall of communism many old buildings have given way to modern sky scrapers, the dilapidated old town has been brightened up, and entertainment and services transformed to match that of other western capitals.

Home to various palaces, castles and citadels, Warsaw is noted for the Soviet-era Palace of Culture and Science, as well as the marketplace at the 10th Anniversary Stadium, a converted festival site where you can buy all sorts of interesting items. Also recommended is a visit to the Old Town, which was rebuilt between 1949 and 1963 after being destroyed in World War II in the Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque styles of architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries. You can visit the Historical Museum of Warsaw and Royal Castle at nearby Old Town Square.

We arrive in the evening in time to enjoy some of the city's buzzing nightlife. However, in order to fully explore the city and any of the optional excursions listed in the Trip Notes, you may wish to book post-tour accommodation.
Overnight: Warsaw  |  Breakfast

Day 7

Warsaw

Your adventure of a lifetime comes to an end today. If you have a late flight or have lengthened your stay by adding post tour accommodation you will have more time to explore the sights.

Extra Tour Info

Eastern Europe Travel Style
Information on what to expect

This tour was very well organized. Lovely mixed group of people, different ages which made it very interesting. Magda was the best tour guide I have ever had as she was very funny and made everyone feel relaxed straight away. She always went out of her way to make sure everyone is comfortable and carried one of our guests, who was 83, bags at every single stop from the bus. Truly an inspiration for me as I now also want to work for the company! Looking at my next tour already :)
