Our best Baltics tour, with hotels and treatment fit for a VIP. Enjoy the services of an expert guide with a private vehicle & driver and specialized guide, providing interpretation on the most important sights of interest. Nestled on the shore of the Baltic Sea, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia each dazzled on the stage of history. Their access to the sea and proximity to Europe's great powers made them part of an intriguing history and left behind significant capital cities. In the last decade, funds have been put into a spectacular restoration of these cities' archeological heritages. Visitors will enjoy a richly rewarding stroll through the compact old cities lined with cafes, boutiques, spectacular churches and castles. This is a great off the beaten track type tour and one of our favorites. The small size of each city center makes for an enjoyable stroll with your guide. NOTE: The least expensive way to get to the Baltics is via Helsinki.

  • Molly P. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Our family loved our week in Iceland. I am 70 and our youngest is 9. Each activity was well suited for the whole group. We changed one event and Kensington Tours immediately helped us cancel one and sign up for a new adventure. When I had questions they helped me out. Their professionalism, kindness, and attentiveness made our trip a complete success. Thank you!

  • Tammy M. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Jessica Clements was a tremendous help as my husband and I planned our pre-cruise visit to Athens and the Peloponnese. Many thanks for all your efforts. We enjoyed our tours very much. Our guides, Niki Stavrakaki and Andronikos Sakatos, were phenomenal. Our drivers, Makias and Demetrios, were very professional and delightful gentlemen. We had a great time exploring many of the ancient sites we've dreamed of seeing for years.

  • Caroline W. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Transfers were seamless and activities were great. Overall, we are very impressed with Kensington!

  • Beth N. — June 15, 2016 — Europe

    Everything exceeded our expectations!!! Our guides were amazing. Our hotels were wonderful. I wouldn't change anything about our trip! Thanks for your help!

  • Dalia D. — June 15, 2016 — Europe

    I am so glad that I used Kensington Tours to help me plan my trip to Italy. Ingryd was an excellent agent - she understood exactly what was important to my family and every aspect of our trip from Rome to Florence to Venice was well planned and enjoyable, with no hiccups. We made changes to our schedule when in Italy and the local agents were very responsive and quickly adapted our plans to work better for us. We loved the personal attention we got on our private guided tours and felt we learned a lot from knowledgeable guides that were personable and very informative.

  • Barbara K. — June 08, 2016 — Europe

    Another fabulous trip! John O'Connell was so congenial and knowledgeable. I feel like he has become a new friend. We had a great time with him and he made some excellent recommendations for small changes in our itinerary. He was so attentive and caring with my mother too! A really sweet man. Sean Finnigan in Dublin was a bundle of energy - took us to the museum to see the gold exhibit which we knew nothing about - so glad he did! Bought my sister and I a postcard of the Book of Kells alphabet as a remembrance - so kind! It was a trip we will never forget!!

  • Samuel T. — June 08, 2016 — Europe

    Wonderful preparation! Great time and great planning. Definitely use them again in the future.

  • Elliot S. — June 08, 2016 — Europe

    The accommodations and guides were great and everyone we were supposed to meet were courteous and knowledgeable.

  • Gale S. — June 08, 2016 — Europe

    Wonderfully planned! Everything was amazing. The high quality guides and tours were well worth the money, bypassing lines, personal attention and highly knowledgeable. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. Can't wait for our next trip!

  • Judith F. — June 08, 2016 — Europe
