My Regent Baltic tour was in August 2009 on the Voyager.
My Seabourn cruises were in 2008 & 2010, both on one of their small ships.
I thought the Regent tours were o.k. - probably the same quality as when they charged for them & pretty equivalent to the Seabourn group tours we have taken. We opted to skip the tour in Helsinki & we did a private tour on one of our days in St. Petersburg. We did a free tour in one port only because it was free & I wish we had not.
All group tours include more bus time than I like, include stops at stores/factories that don't appeal to me, & they are only as good as the guides who can be variable. I prefer to pay more for a private tour but within $ limits.
