Special interest tours
During the last few years, we have seen an increase in requirements for special interest tours from clients, associations, clubs, and organizations, seeking tailored trips for members and employees.
We are pleased to prepare special programs for different societies, education institutions, professional associations, clubs, and trade associations.
We cooperate with State authorities and offer specialized tours in the following areas: Administration, art and music, agriculture, architecture, fashion, astronomy, technology, biology, economics, history, law, literature, politics, social work, religion, and education.
Tourists’ interests during the last few years have changed, as more tourists would like to concentrate their attention on their own interests and lifestyle and gain focused exposure to the Baltic Region.
We have created special programs for Culinary gourmet tourism, Art and Culture, music festivals, active sports (canoeing, hiking, and cycling), National parks and nature tours, Jewish history, Pilgrimages, golfers, SPA, and relaxation.
We have special tours for different clubs, including Rotary, Lions, Retro cars, and Harley bikers groups.
Our culinary tours in the Baltic countries provide an authentic and mouth-watering way to fast-track your understanding of a city, country, and its culture, by exploring their cuisine.
In Lithuania, you will enjoy Cepelinas, with onion and bacon sauce, and in Latvia, red beetroot yogurt soup, salad, and Lamprey fish. Estonia features black rye bread with different ingredients and the best herrings in the world.
Discovering destinations by taste, is a unique and stimulating experience, giving one a deeper understanding of the area, whilst discovering the culinary secrets of the country.
Baltic countries offer National historical dishes, as well as modern local gourmet variants, for every demanding client’s taste.
We have professional Guides - expert leaders in cuisine and travel and you’ll participate in behind-the-scenes cooking classes and visits to the best local kitchens, markets, and growing areas in the region.
