“This was my first Tucan Tour and it was wonderful. Magda was efficient fun and always available to help. The pace of the trip was great getting to spend two nights in each place really helped you to experience the cities. Thanks for a great experience! ”
“The tour was amazing. Just the right amount of time. The tour guide Madga was absolutely fantastic. I've used many tour companies and has many tour leaders but Madga is by far the best guide. She is intent on you getting the most out of your trip. ”
“The tour guide Magda was very concentious knowledgeable and fun. She did a very good job! I like this style of travel in Europe where you have a lot of freedom but have the option to have dinners together in the evening. The hotels were crap. ”
“The Baltic capitals tour with Magda in August was unbelievable! Magda was bubbly and fun as well as knowledgeable and very helpful! Highly recommend this tour! The Baltic capitals are full of history and absolutely fascinating!! Amazing!!”
“In general I'm happy with the Baltic Capitals' tour. It would be better if the first hotel in Tallinn could be a bit more appealing and convenient to find from a bus stop linked to the airport public bus. But the hotels get better on the next one.”
