Great overview of major Baltic cities and their history. City guides were local, knowledgable, and passionate about the subject matter. Our group was just the right size to get different perspectives from people who love to travel and learn!

The Baltic States RS program exceeded my expectations in so many ways. Traveling to St Petersburg, Tallinn, Helsinki and other ports of call gave me a feel for these Hanseatic countries that books could not convey. Experienced local guides made these visits much more interesting and limitless knowledge of their countries enriched all our lives. Our GL, John Haywood, was worldly, experienced, professional and made each and every day delightful. He not only was a GL but an informed lecturer as well. This RS program is one not to be missed!

The cruise was the best way to visit the 6 Baltic cities with the least effort on our part. All we needed to do was enjoy exploring the cities, learn from the lectures and tour leaders,and eat delicious food. Raod Scholar took care of all the other detils!!!!

This September Capitals of the Baltic, Norwegian Cruise Line program is a wonderful Road Scholar program. The cooler, autumn weather and the avoidance of the European school vacation period of August makes the whole experience a delight.

The Baltic Cruise is a nice sampler of what to expect in the capitals of the region. Sometimes, as in Stockholm, sites were discussed that required more attention. So I have returned for a few days to expand my horizons. Talinn was another place where more grpound time would help.

"Time in denmarks and two days in St. Petersburg were interesting. The half day stops in Estonia, Germany, Finland and Sweden were like brief samplers. I returned to Stockholm afterward to see more. Ship was nice although weather prevented much pool use. " Uploaded By: Judith
