International Travel Experts has announced its line-up of all-inclusive FAM trips for 2016, including the Baltics and Russia.
Highlights of the 9-day The Baltics FAM, departing April 21, include walking tours of Riga, Latvia’s 800-year-old capital city known for its art nouveau architecture; Vilnius, Lithuania’s capital city whose 13th century Old Town features galleries and sleek boutiques; and Tallinn, Estonia’s capital city and cultural hub. In Latvia, guests visit Rundale Palace, a Baroque palace complete with stables and a garden-park; St. Peter’s Church, where guests can see excellent views of the city from the church’s peak; and Sigulda, a picturesque region with a national park, scenic bike trails and Gutman’s Cave—the widest and highest cave in the Baltics. Traveling south, guests reach Lithuania, where they tour the medieval Gediminas Castle and the sacred Hill of Crosses. The tour ends in Tallinn, Estonia with a visit to its Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rates start at $1,650 pp dbl, $1,750 for a companion, $499 single supplement, and include eight nights in four-star accommodations, daily breakfast, sightseeing tours, an English-speaking guide, ground transportation, and entrance fees to the museums listed in the itinerary.
