Nuestro guía Andrews estaba puntualmente a las 10hs del jueves 29 de marzo en el hotel Justus, realmente un SEÑOR, sus explicaciones fueron perfectas, su trato excelente y profesional . Visitamos Castillo de Bauska, Palacio rundale y Colina de las Cruces y paramos a almorza en un lugar típico de comida exquisita muy cerca de la colina de las cruces.
Altísimamente recomendable y super confiable.
We enjoyed our excellent day tour from Riga to Vilnius. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable and provided useful history of both countries. The tour covers 3 main interests – the castle, palace and hill of crosses. We have lunch with our guide at a homely Lithuanian restaurant which was delicious. The car used for the day tour was also very comfortable. We highly recommend Discover Lithuania tours!
