An unforgettable journey through Russia, the Baltics and Eastern Europe. Explore medieval castles, a Soviet bunker and grand palaces. Tour the heritage-listed cities of Tallinn and Riga, and discover the history and opulence of Moscow, St Petersburg and Prague.

BEGIN IN RUSSIA
This fascinating Europe tour starts in Russia where we’ll explore Moscow, stopping at the famous Red Square, the Kremlin, and the city’s Grand Metro, before heading to St Petersburg where we’ll visit the world famous Hermitage Museum.

MEDIEVAL EUROPE
As the European tour continues, we journey through the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania & Belarus. Along the way we’ll stop in Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius. All of these cities have a medieval atmosphere which you’ll feel as you walk down cobblestone streets, sample the delights of cafes in old-world town squares, and visit gothic town halls.

POLAND AND PRAGUE
Next stop Poland. Here we’ll spend time in Warsaw and Krakow, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, rivalled only by Prague - which is where we’ll finish our Europe tour. You’ll love Prague - it’s a wonderfully vibrant city and is home to some of Europe’s most stunning gothic and Baroque architecture.

'I have just returned from my Italian Splendour trip. It was a fantastic holiday. Seeing historical sites, going on walking tours through cities. The highlight dinners were amazing. Everything was organised extremely well. Most importantly were the friends I made. We were like one big family!'

'I would definitely recommend Encounter Travel - I went on the Italian Splendour May 2017 tour (22 days).  I loved every minute of this adventure.  Our italian guide and driver enabled us to easily immerse into the fabulous culture and lifestyle of Italy.  Having a small group of 15 allowed us easy access to everything (less waiting times) and we soon became friends while exploring the magical cities of Italy.  I felt safe and totally pampered the entire time!  The hotels we stayed in and the restaurants we dined at were first class.  I left my heart in Italy.'

'Russia to Prague an interesting and very informative tour, we saw so much. Beautiful Baltic countries.'

May 2017

'What an amazing trip to Italy. If you had told me that 15 complete strangers could be thrown together in a foreign country and all hit it off so easily I would never have believed it. It was nice to have 2 or 3 nights in each stop and not be moving on each day. From the history of Rome, to the stunning Amalfi coast, picturesque Venice, lunch under the Tuscan sun, vinegar tasting in Modena and relaxing at Lake Maggiore......every day was pure joy. I had looked at this trip for a couple of years before taking the plunge and booking it. A trip to remember for years to come and I have also made some fantastic new life long friends.'
