"Fantastic Tour with a fantastic Guide!"

What a brilliant day from start to finish, Kamile is a credit to the tour company, funny, friendly and a fountain of knowledge. Even dropped us off at the hotel too! Could not have picked a better way to get from Riga to Vilnius. Would definitely recommend this tour. What a great way to get from one city to the another. I was travelling with my 15 year old sons and they loved it too! Our highlight was the Hill of Crosses. Thanks Kamile and Thanks Traveller Tours

"Wonderful tour!"

We had a really great tour from Riga to Vilnius with Kamile. She kept us entertained and also is super knowledgable and full of great stories. While the tour obviously costs more than public transportation, we felt it was definitely worth it because we saw some places we wouldn't have chosen to see beforehand but really enjoyed, and others which we wanted to see but are really hard to access via public transportation. Unfortunately, due to the shorter days in winter, Trakai wasn't included in our tour, but it was an easy trip from Vilnius, so it wasn't so bad.

"A good way to get between capitals"

Great tour, interesting mix of places. Could have had one more spot, but the short days made that tricky. Lovely tour guide!

"Just perfect"

Just perfect. Very interesting private tour.

"Lovely day trip"

Absolutely a fantastic way of travelling from Riga to Vilnius. Saw a bunch of highlights of Latvia and Lithuania other than the capital cities. Laurynas is a great guide, very helpful and fun. Fantastic day!

"Riga to Vilnius"

The trip was excellent. Very comfortable van and our tour Guide Kamile , originally from Lithuania was great.

Meeting Point
