"Great way to travel from Riga to Vilnius"

Alina, our driver and guide, was very cheerful and active. She had lots of stories and jokes to tell. She drove carefully. The van was spacious and had lots of space for luggage. A bottle of drinking water was provided. The whole tour took 12 hours. I find it too long. One of the reasons was Alina was not very strict with time. Some tourists spent their time as they wanted.

"excellant "

tour and guide were excellent . we completed our 5 places visit 1 hour ago. then we request Laurynas to take us some picturious places in Vilnius. He did . He also help us to get food that we choose. it was a nice experience. best wishes. rashid

"Best way to travel from one city to the other"

Excellent friendly driver/guide. Stopped at all the interesting places between Riga and Vilnius. Ample time and explanation at stops. Lunch stop was at a great hotel. Great job!

"Sensational way to see hidden parts of Latvia and Lithuania "

Alina really made this tour. She was insightful, energetic, knowledgeable and so willing to make sure we had a fabulous time. I wouldn’t have visited these parts of Latvia and Lithuania if I hadn’t done this tour. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to travel between the two countries and not sit on a train or bus the whole time. Sensational!

"Great Experience"

We recently visited the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. We organized our own itinerary but used Traveller Tours to get us from one country to the next. We arrived in Tallinn, Estonia a day earlier to visit the city. The next day, Traveller Tours took us from Tallinn to Riga, Latvia. We spent the next day, visiting Riga ourselves. The following day, we continued our Traveller Tour to Vilnius, Lithuania. The following day, we included the city guided Vilnius tour in our visit. Traveller Tours is a great way to see the Baltic countryside visiting may sites you wouldn’t see otherwise. Our drivers, Camille and La..were friendly, and enthusiastic guides. They were knowledgeable of the past and present history of their countries. A lot of this history was told to them by their grandparents who experienced WW II. Traveller Tours is giving international tourists the opportunity to visit this part of the world in a small group experience. Guides: Kamilie to Riga, Laurynas to Vilnius
