The tour helps to save time by covering attractions that are far from the city centre while transiting from Vilnius to Riga. The door-to-door pick up service was convenient and saves the hassle of having to find an assembly point while dragging your luggage. The attractions covered are scenic and guide is friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend for travellers who are visiting both Vilnius and Riga.

It was an amazing experience. Highly recommended tour for people having limited time exploring the Baltic states as the tour takes you to the 3 important sites between Vilnius and Riga, Hill of the Cross in Lithuania, Rundale Palace and Bauska Castle in Latvia, in just one day. Definitely worth of money and time. Instead of travelling by plane, I recommend anyone to take this tour because with the private van you can save time by going from Vilnius to Riga and visiting 3 sites in just one day. We had more than enough time to explore each site and thanks to the longer summer hours, too. We were a party of 3 people but I think this private tour can accommodate up to 6 persons in our van. Inga, is an excellent driver and amazing tour guide. She is friendly, patient and knowledgeable. She shared lots of history in the region which we enjoyed so much. Things we read in the internet are different from the information we learned from someone locally. I would recommend this tour to everyone visiting the Baltic for the first time and I would recommend Inga as your tour guide.

We were picked up at our hotel in Vilnius on time. Our group size only 3; my wife & I were joined by a lady. Our driver (Andrea’s?) was first class. He was most knowledgeable, telling us not only about the sites we visited but also sharing personal Lithuanian ways of life. We were given sufficient personal time at each site we visited. Approaching Riga he spoke with our apartment owner in Riga and reaffirmed our apartment address and time of arrival. We were very grateful & were dropped off at our apartment on time. A most interesting & well organised day. Many thanks

Me and my father travelling from Vilnius to Riga on this tour. Andrius our guide arrived at our hotel in his car and advised that the other 2 people due to go on the tour had cancelled last minute (min 4 people needed), however he would still take us as we booked so far in advance. It was great. Yes we didn’t get to experience the minivan/bus but it was fantastic that Andrius drove us to Riga and we had a personal commentary along the way. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. The hill of crosses in particular Really impressed us and the palace and castle were very impressive. Highly recommended and very thankful!

Booked a transfer tour from Vilnius to Riga that took in the Hill of Crosses, Rundale Palace and Bauska Castle along the way. Great way to spend the day if youre transiting from Vilnius to Riga, much more economical to see the Hill of Crosses along the way rather than to make a to and fro journey from Vilnius. Emails and queries were always promptly responded to, on the day itself, was picked up from my accommodation in a Mercedes minivan. Very comfortable ride, dropped off at the accommodation in Riga.
