We are cruising soon through the Baltics. What are the best tours to take? Are there any better local tour companies?
Baltics cruises typically visit a great deal of Europe’s oldest and historic cities and the best tours to take depend a lot on your interests. If you’re unfamiliar with a city on your itinerary, no matter which cruise line you travel with, you’ll have the opportunity of a guided city tour, which is the best way to get a feel for your destination. If you’ve a particular interest in food or drink, then there are often excursions to culinary places of interest, while if you have a more adventurous streak or are a fan of nature and the outdoors, seek out an excursion which ventures a little further afield. There will always be a choice of local tour companies offering a range of excursions and though their rates may be competitive, they won’t have the endorsement of your cruise line, meaning you’ll be responsible for your own safety, managing your time effectively and making sure you get back to the ship before she sets sail.
