We really enjoyed the holiday, it gave us a great flavour of 3 different countries and as everything is organised for you, it's very easy. The pack sent to us before the holiday was fantastic and contained everything you needed and more. We absolutely loved the walking tour guides and used them in every city and didn't get lost once! They were a great way of giving you some direction and ensuring you see all the main sights, plus other gems. We particularly loved the old town in Stockholm and not sure we'd have seen so much of it without the guide. The city cards were really useful as well, the weather was not always on our side so we also made use of the bus tours which were all good. It might just be that these counties are more up to date with allergies and intolerances, but found all 3 hotels were great with providing alternatives at breakfast, ie GF bread, lactose-free milks, soya milk etc so there were no worries on that side of things.
Some advice re getting the train from Copenhagen to Stockholm. Don't go down to the platform too early and make sure you've double checked which platform to go to (check the Boards and ask a member of staff). We saw that 1 board said platform 26 and as that is what it also advises in the paperwork (it's the usual platform used), we took that as certain and waited there. This was a mistake and we missed the train, quite stressful but luckily we weren't in England and the rail company sorted it out straight away for us and all was fine in the end! The train journey itself was really nice, lots of space, all seats have power points so you can charge your phone/tablet. Lots of nice scenery to look at and there's a buffet car if you need food, though not a massive range so it might be worth buying something beforehand. The overnight cruise to Helsinki was very basic, but it does mean you sleep through most of the travelling so it's a good way to get there without using any of your holiday time.
Overall, a great holiday experience!
