“Really beautiful Palace with very well planned stops.”
We really enjoyed this tour with lots of cultural stops and breathtaking views. The day before the tour we realised we made a mistake and booked a one-way trip when we had thought we booked a round-trip (our mistake!). We called up the company and got it sorted very easily for a small charge. Very well served! We really enjoyed the trip and had a wonderful guide. Would recommend!
We booked a transfer (4 pax) in a car from Riga to Vilnius. We original thought of getting to Vilnius by regular bus but found out there are some interesting and must see places in between these 2 capitals. Glad we opted for this. We hot to see 3 sights on the way to Vilnius, Bauska Castle, Rundale Palace and the Hill of Crosses. It was a very comfortable drive and we were given enough time to see the sights and have a good leisurely lunch. Our driver was very professional, very timely and provided us with enough info regarding the places we visited. We highly recommend Discover Lithuania travel company and Reda who promptly communicated our pick-up time. Booked 2 yours with them (other one was Paneriai Memorial and Trakai Castle). Both excellent. Thanks for making our trip to Vilnius memorable and special!
This is a unique mound covered and surrounded by over 200,000 crosses. Different but not particularly
interesting to us. Worth a stop if you’re interested.
El guía Andrew estuvo magnifico, muy puntual, hicimos la excursion desde Riga hasta Vilnius, muy claro, amable. Altamente recomendable.
