The modern world will fall away as you experience the essence of 18th-century opulence at one of the most beautiful Baroque palaces in all of the Baltic nations.

Rundale Palace was built between 1736 and 1740 as the summer residence of the Duke of Courland and your private driver will transport you to this Latvian royal playground enroute from Riga to Vilnius. Arriving in Vilnius, you’ll soon realize that the Lithuanian capital is home to perhaps the most significant and interesting collection of architecture anywhere in the world as you marvel at its many Classical, Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces. Elsewhere, tour the remarkable 11th-century old town at Tallinn and pause to ponder the distinctive onion domes of Alexander Nevsky Cathedral; wander the maze of cobblestone alleys in old Riga; and listen to the music of one of the largest organs in the world at the 13th-century Dome Cathedral.

With its proud maritime tradition, Soviet legacy and modern western influence, the Baltic nations hold a unique character that your team of private guides will slowly unravel. Private transfers between cities also provide added flexibility to stop in quaint countryside villages of your choice, and accommodation is in a range of luxurious four-star properties that span fashionable city hotels, Art Nouveau retreats and boutique old-town villas. ...

  • John D. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    Had a great trip to Spain and Portugal. All went well. No polishing points or constructive feedback to provide. This was the third trip with Kensington in 18 months and all were wonderful.

  • Carlos B. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    It was our first trip to Italy. I can only describe my experience as exceptional. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The tours were exceptional and very punctual. The accommodations and transportation were first class. I have already started to recommend Kensington tours and I will definitely will use them in my future trips.

  • Nancy H. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    This was the second tour we have taken with Kensington Tours. This was very different from our first tour but just right for this time. My husband and I traveled with my 85 year old parents.The accommodations and the pace of the travel worked very well. Our guide, Dermot, was very friendly and very understanding of our special needs as well as very knowledgeable. I have already had further communication with him. Thanks for the memorable experience.

  • 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.
