Families with young children often feel relaxed and can enjoy themselves in the comfort of a private tour, being flexible on itinerary and pace.

And if you have never been to the Baltics, the best way to cross it off your bucket list is to experience the must-see attractions using the know-how of a local tour operator. Smart Shoes & layered clothing Pick your battles, trying to out your new pair of shoes isn´t one of the things you should be doing on your Baltic cruise. Whatever the port, from Tallinn to Stockholm, you are likely to be doing a lot of walking on cobbled streets, make sure you and your family packs comfortable footwear. Layered clothing is the best way to make sure you are prepared for the unpredictable weather conditions of the Nordic summer. An insightful Estonian proverb says: “Eyes of summer, teeth of winter.” By extension it means that no matter how beautiful and warmly enticing the weather might appear, you can’t trust it. So please make sure you have something with you for both puddle walks and strolls in the baking sun. Carpe diem!  Most of all, enjoy yourself and the city you are in by taking in the local delights, sights and the infectious spirit of passion for their town by Estonian Experience tour guides on a once-in-a-lifetime experience in and around the Baltic Sea.
