We cannot thank MCI enough for making the suggestion to tour the Baltic States – a region we would have never considered, but which fit best with our budget. Our recent “Baltics Tour” turned out to be the best tour we have ever experienced. Everything met and exceeded our expectations – lodging, meals, local staff, sightseeing, and most importantly, our performances. We've never had a group of tour concerts as great as these were. We truly enjoyed all of them and they were all wonderful experiences, especially the shared concerts with local ensembles. Tour highlights include the joint concert in Lithuania, the audience interaction in Riga, and the purple flowers we received in Riga! The highlight for the kids was having such responsive, full, enthusiastic audiences at our concerts! They were better audiences than we have ever had before!!!
