Seasonality and Weather
This tour is offered in late spring and summer when temperatures are warm, rainfall less likely, and long daylight hours. Summer can be humid. Our September date will encounter considerably cooler temperatures and greater likelihood of rain.
Transport and Travel Conditions
Land transport throughout by private air-conditioned motor coach, 24-36 seats depending on ultimate group size (see 'group size'). Though we will have a couple of full bus days there are plenty of stops of interest. Hydrofoil crossing to Finland. Overnight ferry crossings with twin berths and private bath facilities.
Most of our town / city tours are conducted largely on foot. You must be able to walk at a leisurely pace (with breaks), possibly on uneven surfaces (steps and cobblestones), for several hours at a time.
Well-located, air- conditioned, mid-range hotels (3-star) throughout. Some are smaller properties (3-4 story) that may not have elevators. All hotels have en suite bath, though most have shower only. Porter service is rarely available; you MUST be independent with your luggage. Single rooms are limited and likely smaller than twins.
