"Best way to cross from Riga to Vilnius"
We didn’t know what to expect out of a 12hour tour with total strangers especially in a country where we had great difficulty with communication. Then the tour made the highlight of our stay, the guide Laura was perfect in creating a lively atmosphere throughout and caring for all our needs. The scenery and the places visited were amazing... highly recommended!
"Intelligent way to travel"
Go with the flow
The travel was good. Thank you Alex.
"Highlight of our vacation"
I booked this tour primarily to get from Riga to Vilnius. However, the tour turned out to be the highlight of our stay in the area. Laura was so enthusiastic and knowledgable. The places we stopped were ones we would never have known about, nor stopped otherwise. What an enriching and wonderful experience. I highly recommend
We had a great time travelling with our guide, we saw lots of different and fantastic places, Now we have more knowledge about the history of latvia and lithuania, thank you for all !
An excellent way to travel between Riga and Vilnius. The stops were all the key must sees. I went to the Information Center in Vilnius looking for a day trip. All the recommended day trips were stops on the Riga - Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus. Our tour guide was energetic, informative and fun! I would highly recommend this tour.
"Terrific tour that also gets you from A to B!"
Lau was very engaging. He knew his stuff and we learnt a lot about Lithuania and Latvia. Can't praise him enough. Having local guides share their own insights makes these Tours wonderful. We had Anna for the previous one and she was also doing this trip with us in another vehicle. They both are amazing. They had their areas of specialty with one being Lithuanian and the other Latvian. The tours enabled us to see places we wouldn't have been able to see if we had just caught the regular bus. A two in one experience, getting from A to B and sightseeing too. I'll recommend you to anyone I know heading this way.
"Fantastic day! Fantastic people! Fantastic tour!"
An easy and fun way to get from A to B without missing everything in between. Guide was friendly, funny and a great storyteller - we learnt a lot about the history and culture of both Latvia and Lithuania.
"A fun, memorable day traveling to Vilnius! "
I've done so many tours while traveling but so far this one [Riga-Valnius] was the best, mainly thanks to our wonderful, enthusiast and experienced guides, Anna & Laurynas. The two of them made a long day go by quickly and enjoyable. They took us to various memorable/historic places, explained at depth the significance of each place we stopped during the trip and more. I really enjoyed the day and I'm so glad I chose to do the tour instead of taking a bus to Vilnius as I had already planned. Thank you again, Anna & Laurynas, you guys rock!
"Great way to go from Riga to Vilnius"
This is a great way to go from Riga to Vilnius while visiting around. Everything is well organized, on time, and well set up. Our guide Laura was amazing, she is passionate, devoted and funny. We learned that Lithuania is the best country and Gediminac the best grand duke. Laura made our trip special, despite the bad weather which we were unlucky with. Recommended!
Our guide was Karolis who we also had on tour from Tallinn to Riga so knew we would be well looked after and he would be informative about history and culture. We set off promptly with five other travellers from other continents, besides myself and my partner. The others’ lives and backgrounds were very interesting to listen to which made the trip more enjoyable. We stopped at a memorial, then a palatial garden, the previous capital of Lithuania, the Hill of Crosses and finally Trakai Castle early evening. We walked around the exterior of the castle which we accessed crossing bridges as it is surrounded by water. Beautiful place which Karolis knew well. Lunch was at an equestrian centre where we saw horses being ridden. Food was preordered and good quality and reasonably priced. It was a lovely tour and would thoroughly recommend, great guide too.
"Excellent tour with wonderful upbeat guide and great sights"
This is a great tour that takes travellers from Riga to Vilnius by way of all the top sights along the way. During our day with our guide, we learned so much about the history of each place - the Rundale Palace, Holocaust Memorial, historical Kaunas, Hill of Crosses and Trakai Castle. The blend of all the stops and sights was diverse and had something for everyone. By the time we arrived in Vilnius, we already felt acquainted with the country of Lithuania. Thanks for a really memorable day!
Very nice guide. Kept the tour always interesting. She has lots of patience. It is one of the trip we are going to remember for long time.
"Best way to travel from RigaN"
This whole day trip was the perfect way to get from Riga to Vilnius. Lau went above and beyond to make this trip as informative and pleasant as possible. We got to see many of the great spots on the way as well as try some authentic local treats/cuisine. Highly recommended for anyone who want to get from one city to the other and get to see everything in between. Thank you!
"Best way to get from Riga to Vilnius"
Great time and a perfect way to see the sights along the way when traveling from Riga to Vilnius. Karolis was a fun and engaging guide and my fellow travelers were great too. All in all, so much better than just taking the scheduled bus between cities.
We had Anna and Laura as our guides as we joined two tours. Both are young, enthusiastic and passionate about their job and share more about their country with you, which makes the trip worth it. Laura even took us to our hotels as it was raining heavily in Vilnius.
"Dealing with chickens"
Your driver/guide tried so hard to deal with passengers who SHOULD have taken the bus. ALL over 60 years. ALL convinced that they were entitled to ignore Lau’s expertise. SO kind of him to ignore their lack of world awareness. Lau knows (and APPRECIATES) Lithuanian history and culture. As he understands his role as a spokesperson for Baltic culture, maybe he can command “Silence” so that the rest of us can learn from his knowledge and LOVE of this beautiful country.
It was interesting to visit the different sights and hearing stories about how the places and history came about.
Definitely better than flying!
"Best way to see sights from Riga & Vilnius "
Excellent small group tour which took us to places we didn’t know existed eg the Hill of Angels. Our guide Lau was terrific - Lau gave good, clear summaries of the history and made it fun to listen. Nothing was a problem for Lau - he arranged lunch (including special requests), changed his format to suit, and even found us in our hotel to return glasses we left on the bus after the tour was over - thankyou Lau!! We were apprehensive booking the tour from home before we left but found it to be very professional and on time. Highly recommend this tour as it’s an economical way to see many sights particularly if you have limited time in the area.
"One of the best decisions of my life"
Fantastic trip, with amazing stops and an even better guide. I've seen things I would have never seen in my life otherwise, and our guide was clearly knowledgeable and had a good spirit and sense of humor, which made everything worthwhile. I would say the price was just right for the trip. :)
"Amazing, cultural, fun!"
The trip was amazing! Everything was well organised and you got a chance to go and explore at each location. The guide was great fun and really got to know each member of our group which made the journeys in between much more fun. He was extremely informative but kept things short and simple rather than drowning on. You got a real VIP feeling to every location we visited. The guide knew all the best spots for photos and even the best places to grab a coffee/snack. The locations along the tour are beautiful! You get a full sense of being off the beaten track, seeing things the normal travelers don't! Only negative is sometimes in the old towns you don't really get lots of time to really go and explore, but you are traveling a long distance and guide was very good at time keeping so you get a fair amount of time at each location. Overall, would one hundred present recommend this to anyone that wants to see the beautiful sites that not everyone will! That will leave you with amazing stories to tell!
"Excellent Journey Between Latvia and Lithuania"
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip between Latvia and Lithuania. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and engaging. The stops were fantastic (Trakai was so awesome we went back for a day trip!). If you are looking for a way to go from Latvia and Lithuania, this is a great option. The only negative on this trip was the size and condition of the mini-van. The van really only fits 7 people, and we had 8 in our group. Also, the van was not as clean as I would have expected.
"A day of adventure "
What a great way to spend your day traveling from Riga to Vilnius. Our guide took us to fascinating spots and told us about the history and points of interest. A great day!
"Understand more as you travel"
Alina was waiting with the bus even though we were early, a good sign we thought. The tour was well organised and we enjoyed the visits to different sites. Alina added to our enjoyment and understanding by recounting her family’s Lithuanian and Jewish history. Thoroughly recommended.
"Best way to get to Vilnius!"
This is the best Riga to Vilnius tour on the market. Great stopovers at all the major sights along the way and a friendly Lithuanian guide to answer all the questions you ever had (and more). Highly recommend this tour!
Anna was our guide. She told us about the history of Lithuania, showed us Kaunas, Trakai castle. She offered to take us direct to our accommodation in Vilnius which is much appreciated. In all, We enjoyed this day trip. We all recommend this tour to our friends. We offered her free coffee in return and tipped.
"Fantastic! I can't imagine a better way to get to Vilnius from Riga"
Great range of stops and sights. Informative and entertaining tour guide. Everything was magnificent . Best tour guide I've ever had.
Thank you Laurynas, our kind, genuine and most informative leader who guided us successfully from Riga to Vilnius over a 12 hour time frame which allowed stops in six really interesting places. We simply would not have been able to explore the sights independently in a short time frame so are very grateful to the company for a well organised and interesting itinerary which at 55 euros is quite affordable. I have a better appreciation of the struggles and challenges people have faced in the Baltic region and really admire young people like our guide sharing his love and loyalty of his home country. It gives us such hope that the world can be a better place.
Alex, our guide and driver extraordinaire was most knowledgeable and fun to be with.
"Fantastic way to travel from Riga to Vilnius!"
Triin our guide was brilliant. Extremely knowledgable and very interesting and engaging. She also had a great sense of humour. This tour packs a lot into one day and the time flies by as you travel from one site to the next. It is also very good value for money when you look at day tours to just one site from Vilnius. I have already recommended the tour to others heading to Tallinn/ Riga/ Vilnius this year. Well done to this company, they’ve really got it right👍🏻
"Tolle Möglichkeit von Riga nach Vilnius zu kommen"
Vor allem wenn man ohne Auto unterwegs ist, ist diese Tour eine tolle Möglichkeit von Riga nach Vilnius zu kommen und dabei noch einiges von beiden Ländern zu sehen und etwas zur Geschichte zu hören. Die Stops sind nicht zu kurz oder zu lange und die 12 Stunden vergehen insgesamt wie im Flug. Würde die Tour daher umbedingt jedem empfehlen :-)
Very fun and informative way to travel from Riga to Vilnius. Small groups, friendly fellow-travelers and very nice guide (Alex from Vilnius). We visited all the main sights between Riga and Vilnius, everything exceeded our expectation. Would recommend to everyone!
"An excellent day tour."
We enjoyed our day tour from Riga to Vilnius. Our guide was Laura and she is such a lovely and bubbly person. We were given alot of information at every stop.The stops were all interesting, We stopped for lunch at this amazing place. The food was good and reasonably priced, while the place itself is so beautiful.
"Exceeded my expectations"
I think this is the best way to tour around Baltic countries Our tour guide was Alex from Vilnius.
This is an excellent way to get from one Baltic city to another and see the sights as well. It was professionally run, well organised and visited interesting spots. The guide, Alex, was knowledgeable and had a lively outgoing personality. The restaurant where we stopped for lunch served up lovely food at a very reasonable price. Overall, really good value for money.
"A Must-do tour"
We totally enjoyed the trip, the places visited enroute are must see. The guide was friendly and amazing. We got a good insight about places enroute. Ps. The place that guide took us for lunch enroute was amazing.
"An excellent way to travel from Riga to Vilnius"
👍👍👍😄😄😄 Triin, is an excellent guide, very lively and knowlegable, always ready to help and to tell us all we want to know about the 3 Baltic states. We also met Mikus who was jovial and helpful. We had a good time. Thank you very much.
"Nice Cultural Experience"
My wife and I recently took a tour from Riga to Vilnius and enjoyed the experience. I liked the locations chosen for the tour, and the 6 hour ride was broken up nicely into manageable pieces, where a typical Riga to Vilnius trip might have been less pleasant. Our tour guide was quite new and could have been a bit more engaging during the driving portions of the trip, but I'm sure that will come with time.
"Best possible way to touch the tourist bases in Baltics"
I was quite happy to have chosen this tour as I cannot drive in Europe. Our tour guides Laura and Triin were extremely friendly and made sure to have a dynamic environment in the van by continuously cracking some Baltic jokes . Laura is not only an excellent driver but an excellent singer as well, she sang us a beautiful lullaby. She was driving whole day and simultaneously explaining us the history about different places. So much energy ! Hope my review gets her a raise ;) You don't get to spend enough time on various places but you get enough time to get a feel and pics of these places. Obviously you can't spend too much time at one place on a day trip. The tour cost was reasonable in my humble opinion. Long story short, go ahead and book this trip. You won't regret it.
"Top Tour "
The trip was excellent. Brilliant way to travel between cities Riga and Vilnius, stopping at key landmarks, castles and absorbing history en route with personal insights and experiences from guide. Fresh and enthusiastic like a good ‘road trip’ with someone else looking after directions and parking.
"Road trip - Riga to Vilnius"
We were four travelers and Triin and became friends by the end. She was great in informing us of the different places we visited along with a great stop for lunch. We visited the Palace that the mini-series War & Peace was filmed, then my favorite, the Hill of Crosses. What a mind-boggling site of so many crosses in one place. The lunch stop was fantastic. Then the stop at the former capital of Lithuania and Triin was good in providing a quick summary of the history. I had a quick coffee and chocolates at the Chocolateria. Then the castle on the lake. I can’t remember all the names of the places but I do remember what I see and what I felt. Thanks to Triin for a wonderful road trip.
My friends and I were travelling from Riga to Vilnius so we decided to use the tour. It was definitely one of the best decisions we made. We managed to get to places that we wouldn't have gone on our own. Those were interesting places. Our guide, Laura, was fantastic! She was full of energy, caring and gave her best to the tour. She was a star! The tour was definitely worth the time and money !
"Amazing , useful and well done"
Just a great tour not to mention an informative and traveler-smart way to get between Riga and Vilnius. We saw so many things and just had a wonderful time. Kert was awesome!! It doesn‘t get better than a great tour with a great guide. We really recommend it!
"Incredible tour company!!!"
I went with three other friends and we booked the Tallinn-Riga and the Riga-Vilnus tours with this company and it was incredible! 2 fantastic days with amazing and fun guides. If you are travelling through the Baltic states I cannot recommend this enough. It really gives you an insight into the three countries.
We took the 12 hour trips between Tallinn and Riga and then between Riga and Vilnius. Both days were enjoyable and informative with excellent guides Olga and Triin. Whether stopping at historic castles, nature parks, monuments and museums, or even for lunch, our guides enthusiastically shared local folklore, personal stories, and knowledge of the Baltics. Seeing a little more of the Baltic countries outside of the capitals was a refreshing change as it is mostly gorgeous countryside with farms, forests, wildflowers, and storks! Don't look at any other tour operator because with Traveller Tours you've found the best!
"Fantastic Tour Company!"
I booked two tours with this company, and was thrilled both times. My friend and I used the tours as our method of transportation between Baltic cities and to see some of the places that are a bit harder to reach on your own. It was shocking to me how cheap these tours were, but also how amazing! The first tour was from Tallinn to Riga. First of all, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. Some highlights were the town of Viljandi, Helme, and Gauja National Park. The second tour was from Riga to Vilnius. Our tour guides were amazing and very knowledgeable, willing to answer obscure questions and also fun as travel companions. This tour had even better highlights, specifically Rundāle Palace, lunch in the incredibly picturesque Audruvis, the Hill of Crosses, and Trakai. I cannot recommend this tour company enough, and will definitely use them on any return trips to the Baltics in the future!
"Two fantastic tours"
We did the Tallinn-Riga and Riga-Vilnius tours and they were both fantastic. Long days but we visited lots of places that would have been difficult to get to on our own. The guides were friendly and very knowledgable and the atmosphere with such a small group (maximum 8 people) was great. Plenty of space in the back of the van for luggage. Would definitely book another tour with this company.
"Very good tours with good guides"
In June I made three tours, Riga-Tallinn, Lahemaa National Park and Riga-Vilnius. I can recommend all three tours, they were really interesting and we saw a lot of things I didn´t read in a travelguide. Especially Riga-Vilnius was very interesting and we saw a lot interesting places. The staff is very helpful, Isabel answered all my mails very quickly. And Triin is an awesome tour guide. She told the history of Estonia very emotional with a very private character and she told us examples from her own family about the suffering time before Independence. The guides of the other tours were also good, but Triin was phenomenal.
