Justin

Solo Traveller

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.

Couple Traveller

My friend and I decided to use Discover Lithuania for airport pick up and also to drive us from Vilnius to Riga in order to take advantage of seeing more sights in both countries. We were very pleased with their service on both accounts.

Andres, our driver both times was timely in picking us up at the airport and providing us with some off the track restaurant options. We spent 3 nights in Vilnius before he again picked us up to drive us and another traveler, Justin from Taiwan, to Riga.

Along the way to Riga we were able to stop and explore 3 interesting and historic sights. Entrance fees were included in the transport cost. We also did a lunch stop along the way (lunch cost not included but was not expensive), before we arrived in Riga for door to door service.

I would very highly recommend this drive as you will have the opportunity to see more than just taking a bus or train from city to city. We really were very happy with the whole day.
