Warsaw, the Baltics & Helsinki with St. Petersburg & Moscow (RQM)

15 days from Warsaw to Moscow

2021 Tour Details

This tour of the Baltics and Northern Europe is impressively full of high notes. Making your way from Poland to Finland through Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, you’ll see the historic sights, savor the hearty stews, and hear the harmonious songs this distinctive region is famous for, starting with a private Chopin concert in the music maestro’s hometown. Beyond Warsaw’s resilience and its “Wedding Cake” Palace of Culture and Science, there’s more to fall in love with in every capital city along your journey—Vilnius’ bohemian artist quarter, Riga’s Black Balsam liqueur and sweet Laima chocolates, and Tallinn’s fairytale Old Town and onion-domed cathedral. Don’t cry—your tour’s not over yet! A breezy ferry ride across the Baltic Sea to the design-centric city of Helsinki is the perfect encore.

Vodka wishes and caviar dreams are sure to come true when you extend your tour of Northern Europe to include Russia. Leading you to the country’s two largest and most fascinating cities, this 6-day extension doubles the blinis, borscht, and Baroque architecture as you savor the sights, history, and flavors of Russia’s former and current capital.

 Tour Director

ANDREJ SCHERGIN

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

I have not always been a tour director, I worked in a variety of fields until I eventually started escorting weekend tours for fun, I found my true vocation. I love sharing my passion for European cities with my clients, giving them an insider's perspective that they would miss if they travelled on their own. I also love seeing happy smiles on my clients' faces during the whole tour. I enjoy escorting tours to Russia, my native country, especially to Moscow. Although all expect St. Petersburg to be beautiful (and they are not disappointed) most are blown away by Moscow. It is a vibrant city that simply overwhelms with a startling combination of historical monuments, modern sights and night-time illumination.
