Overview

Explore Warsaw and the three Baltic capital cities of Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn.

Travel to Europe often requires an overnight flight. Please arrange for flights to arrive on or before Day 1.

  1. Welcome to Warsaw. On arrival at Warsaw Airport transfers will operate at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm. Guests arriving later should make their own way to the hotel. After checking in this afternoon, relax and unwind or take a stroll through the city. This evening, meet your fellow travelers and Travel Director at the hotel.

    hotel:Campanile Varsovie
  2. This morning we join a Local Specialist visiting the Old Town, which the Nazis destroyed to retaliate against the brave Warsaw Uprising, and the site of the Warsaw Ghetto, immortalized in the Roman Polanski film 'The Pianist.' Spend the rest of the day seeing the sights—perhaps visit the 14th-century Royal Castle or celebrate the talents of Chopin and enjoy a private recital of Chopin's works.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Dinner
  3. We journey to Lithuania, arriving later in the capital Vilnius, renowned for its beautiful Baroque façades.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
    hotel:Europa City
  4. Join a Local Specialist on a tour past the city's iconic sights. See the Bishop's Palace and the University, the oldest university in the Baltics. Explore the 17th-century Baroque Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, built on the site of a temple to the pagan goddess of love. Walk to the Gates of Dawn, the Carmelite Church of St. Theresa and former Jewish Ghetto, and the Cathedral.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Dinner
  5. Enjoy a free morning in Vilnius, departing the city after lunch. Our first stop is the extraordinary Hill of Crosses at Šiauliai, the site of thousands of crosses, each mysteriously claiming its place since the mid-19th century. We arrive in the ancient city of Riga later where we will spend the next two nights.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
    hotel:Hestia Jugend
  6. Explore Riga's winding medieval streets on a sightseeing and walking tour with a Local Specialist. Spend the rest of the day exploring the sights on your own, admiring the skyline from the comfort of a canal boat, or indulging in the herbal flavors of the city's favorite Black Balsam at a traditional city tavern.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
  7. We follow the Gulf of Riga north into Estonia, and travel via Pärnu, a popular beach resort to the fairy tale capital of Tallinn. This evening we dine in our hotel.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel:Hestia Europa
  8. Explore the beautifully preserved streets of Tallinn's old Hanseatic Quarter with a Local Specialist. See its 15th-century Luhike Jalg Gate and visit Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, a symbol of Russian power with its magnificent gold-plated dome.

  • U.S. citizens traveling to the Baltics must have a current passport valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. Travelers visiting Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia will also need an entry visa.  We will send you application forms to complete to obtain your visa prior to departure. Visa costs and entry requirements can change at any time. Please visit travel.state.gov to learn more.

  • The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks in the countries you visit. We recommend you also bring a valid credit card for purchases while you are traveling.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • The continental climate of the Baltics varies dramatically, with temperatures reaching the high 80s during summer heat waves and normally plummeting to single digits during winter months. We suggest bringing a variety of clothing items that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • Tipping has become more common throughout Eastern Europe in recent years.  It’s acceptable to leave 5-15 percent gratuity when dining out if a service fee has not already been added to your bill. It’s always a good idea to tip in cash and also important to note that some restaurants will not accept credit cards.

    At the end of your guided vacation, it’s customary to offer your motor coach driver and Travel Director a gratuity.  We recommend €3.00 per person/per day for your driver and €5.00 per person/per day for your Travel Director.  Recommended gratuity for a Local Host and Local Specialist is 1-2 euros per person, paid at the conclusion of each guided visit.  A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure.

  • Baggage on our trips is restricted to one large suitcase per person with dimensions not exceeding 30x19x10 inches and a maximum weight of 50 pounds. You are also permitted one piece of hand luggage, which should be small enough to fit under your coach seat or on the small overhead shelf compartment. Please note that luggage with an adjustable handle and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartment of the coach. Hotel porterage is included in your vacation.

  • You will need to be comfortable on your feet, walking and standing for up to three hours in various weather conditions.  All of our vacations involve walking, often on cobblestone and uneven surfaces in historic city centers.  In order to get the most out of your vacation you need to be able to comfortably walk 1-3 miles unassisted in one day, be in good condition and be able to keep pace with the group. 

    If you need any medications, it is important that you bring enough to last you the whole trip and keep them in your carry-on bag while you travel.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.
