We had a great time in the Baltic States. Food was great, hotels were excellent, and the sights we visited on the tour gave us a good sampling of the areas.

The tour was our first organized tour of this type and it was wonderful. Every element was excellent including the bus, our tour leader, selected events as part of the tour and the organized extra events. Everything was on-time, went as expected, and was fun!

I certainly would recommend GET again. Land tours have improved so much since thirty years ago. The coaches are comfortable, hotels very good with lavish breakfasts and helpful English speaking staff; the itinerary is more realistic allowing for leisure time and exploration on own Optional tours are still expensive. In Warsaw the Chopin concert was 45 minutes long, for $60, where there had been a free concert earlier in the day. I especially appreciated the knowledge and helpfulness of our tour guides and also the interesting history the local city guides provided. All in all one of my best tours yet.
Vacation
I'd have wished to move on from Warsaw earlier but only because I had toured Poland 25 years ago - good to see the growth. Estonia seems a little behind the other sister states but still worthwhile.
