US TOUR OPERATORS TOUR LATVIA AND ESTONIA

US TOUR OPERATORS TOUR LATVIA AND ESTONIA
18.10.2017

Via Hansa recently organized a group of selected US tour operators for a week-long trip to the Baltics in co-operation with Finnair and the Latvian and Estonian Tourism Boards. The guests from the US were introduced to the two small Baltic countries - Latvia and Estonia - with a program concentrating on history, culture, nature, gastronomy, architecture and art. The program included many creative activities like a cooking class at Restaurant Three Chefs in Riga, a baroque lunch at Rundale Palace, a visit to an agricultural farm and to Valmiermuiza craft beer brewery, a Russian dinner at Vodka Museum at Vihula Manor, a tour of the Tallinn Old Town with a private visit to the old Medieval Town Hall and a meeting with Vana Toomas, the medieval guardsman of Tallinn and much more. The Americans, who mostly were first time in the Baltic, were surprised about the diversity of the countries and left with a lot of inspiration for new adventures in the Baltic countries.

The fam trip was a part of Via Hansa’s investment into the US markets. Via Hansa has recently joined the association of US tour operators, USTOA, and will participate in the 2017 USTOA Conference and Marketplace later this year in Hollywood, Florida.
