Review about Pearls of the Baltics by Tabitha Holmes
Our trip to Scandinavia (Helsinki, Stockholm) and St. Petersburg was so much fun. The time we spent abroad left us both smiling from ear to ear. Thank you for always being so kind and for answering all of our questions with fast responses, even those frantic late night emails! As for the tour itself, I must say our sweet guide Alma was just a joy to be around. She explained things so well and made us feel welcome everywhere we were. My favorite part about Helsinki was probably strolling around the market and souvenir shopping. Just standing back to enjoy the life in an unfamiliar place is always fulfilling in its own way. The views in Stockholm were gorgeous, and we loved the ferry ride! Ending the tour in Russia was great. Russia is a country I never thought I'd visit, so getting to experience St. Petersburg for a few days couldn't have been better. We adored the food and the Russian folklore show. What a fun time! Thanks for the memories, we loved our Scandinavian tour.
