DAY 1 - Arrive Stockholm
Stockholm
Home to gorgeous people, incredible fashion, the biggest city in Sweden is sure to turn it on from the moment you arrive. We suggest getting right into it from the get go, to feel like a local in an instant! For some local charm, hit up the Gamla Stan & Södermalm (right in the Old Town) and check out the colourful buildings and cool vibes that the place is famous for. In this city that oozes cool, we suggest finding a local spot for a spot of jazz music over a beer or a coffee, no doubt contemplating just how you might go about living here permanently. Tonight, meet up with the squad to get the excitement levels at an all time high for what's in store as we explore this pumping part of the world.

Overnight Baltic Ferry
You only have to look to Finland's quirky array of annual festivals - Wife Carrying World Championships? - to understand that this place has character. Some sources claim Finland is also home to the most heavy metal bands per capita in the world, and the heaviest coffee consumption in the world - we love these people! Between hanging with locals, be sure to rummage the South Harbour Markets, see the city's many sites, & find time for some sauna hangs.

Full on content was great, having to purchase so many add ons on top of an already expensive tour was not. The dinners were far too overpriced considering what was recieved.

This trip really surprised me, I loved everything about it and would go back to each and every country and spend more time exploring. I loved Russia, St Petersburg is beautiful and Moscow is so big and there is so much history I loved every minute of it! I seriously think it's a place everyone should go once in their life.

Very good trip overall. Hotels were decent with the exception of Warsaw (only because it had no air conditioning and it was HOT). Included meals were all decent, lots of optional activities available. All included cities were great. The architecture and buildings in Russia were stunning!!!

It was a fantastic trip, learnt so much about this incredible region and its different people. I highly recommend it to anyone remotely interested in Russia, as it shows a whole new side to this rather mysterious place which leaves you jaw-dropped. In simple terms: Life-changing!

This is definitely a trip for those interested in Russian and Eastern European history and culture. I thought it would be too difficult to do Russia alone and this made it easier to enjoy the experience without the anxiety of travelling in a country which can be notoriously difficult. Also, now I can go back by myself and feel confident!
