I want to see Riga - Vilnius - Warsaw - Gdansk - Copenhagen and maybe Stockholm in one trip (two weeks). There will be three of us. I have tried to set everything up on the internet, but there is a mind-numbing array of options. Does anyone have some advice? What is the best way to proceed? Perhaps a travel agency could help?
