"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
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. 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.
I had a fabulous time on the tour. It was in a great way to travel between the two cities with lots of different sites to see on the way. Our tour guide Kamil was a wealth of knowledge and her enthusiasm really made the trip memorable for me. Thank you so much!
"Twice as long but worth it"
Rather than catch the regular bus, I did the tour with Kamile. It was vastly more interesting and friendly than an express bus would have been.
We had a great time from Rīga-Vilnius. The tour guide is super good and has a good attitude and understand our needs. They are very useful and informative giving us a snap info of where we visit. As we traveled with seniors, they did their best to accommodate our parents by having parking space/drop off and pick up location next to the places we visit and help them to get on and off the mini van. I would recommend this trip to everyone. It is far better than you drive yourself in such a bad weather conditions. It is worried-free. All you need to do is to sit back and relax.
"Best way to travel from Riga to Vilnius!"
We had a private bus tour from Riga to Vilnius and we are really glad that we did it in this way, otherwise it would be impossible to have visited so many places in one day if we had done it by public transportation. It was so much easier when travelling with kids and big luggages. And we learned so much about the history of the Baltic countries (especially Lithuania!). Laura is a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable, helpful, funny with great personality! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone who travel through the Baltic countries!
"Best way to travel between cities!"
Such a great way to see the sites between the capital cities, as well as getting some insight into the culture with the informal chats with your tour guide-driver while on the road. Far better than flying or standard bus. Very highly recommended!
"This is how to travel 🧳 "
We were picked up in a minibus and it was comfortable. The tour was great if you are going from either Vilnius to Riga or the opposite. We got from Riga to Vilnius and it was a lot of interesting stops on the way. We learned alot of history about al the Baltic countries and saw new places. Our tour guide was Laurynas and it was like visiting a history lesson, a theater tour and comedy stand up at once. He drived safe and careful. It’s a very low price for a whole day of entertainment. I want to recommend everybody to take this trip. You will regret not doing this.
Really glad that i did this tour, I didn’t really do research on the visited places but the guide explained it well.
"Interesting way to get from Riga to Vilnius"
Everything was on time and very comfortable. 5 well chosen spots to stop along the way. Lucky with the weather but unfortunately the last two stops in the dark due to short days but both stops are beautifully lit up at night, so it was still perfect in a different way. Guide was very knowledgeable and spiced up the stories with family history. Thanks for a great day.
The tour was amazing. Our tour guide, Laurynas, did an amazing job throughout the trip. He gave us so much insights and information on the places we visited. The stories he told were incredibly interesting. Besides, I probably wouldn't have visited these places on my own if it weren't for this tour. Definitely give it a go!
"Great way to see and learn about the places inbetween Riga and Vilnius "
Really enjoyed the tour! Thanks so much to our awesome guide, Laurynas! He was very knowledgable and funny and helped make the tour a great day. Much better doing this than just taking a normal coach etc
"Gloomy weather but still a shiny tour"
Camile our tour guide made up for the gloomy, rainy, cold and windy weather by being the most cheerful tour guide i've ever experienced. It was more like having a conversation with a friend more than being with a tour guide during our tour. She really made us feel at home and we enjoyed our trip!
"Best way to get between the cities, totaly worth 12 hours of your time! "
I hate getting frustrated and in general that's why I put my expectations so low about everything. When I saw a 12 hours tour stuck with strangers I thought: man, that's going to be either a total crap or a exhausting experience. My thoughts were wrong, that was an AMAZING experience! And I would say, the success was solely thanks to our guide driver: Laura was is her name (make sure you get the pronunciation correct mate). But to give you a brief explanation about my day: When she first spoke at like 7:50 AM (so full of energy), I was hangover, with a headache after a big night out with drinks, I thought: This is going to be a DISASTER! But what I thought was going power my irritability (her endless energy) was the biggest blessing of the day. It was by her energy that the trip turned out to be one of the ones I will never forget! She really turned around the wheel and showed the amazing sights between Riga, Vilnius and everything in between with the honesty and passion that only a truly wonderful local would be able to do. If "Traveler Tours" have chosen her to be their driver, trust me and my partner who was with me, they know what they are doing! Be aware readers, to change my mood (I'm such a grumpy person) it's one achievement that It's really rare. I still follow her on insta just to get a glimpse of the amazing places she visits and the endless energy that she emanates. Make sure you get Laura as your driver, but if you don't I'm sure it will be an amazing experience anyway. Also, think about it: the alternative is a bleak cold buss, that goes from city to city bypassing everything in between. I could be telling you about the places I've visited (that you would not visit if you chose the cold and bleak buss). Places that are so unearthly (like the Hill of Crosses) that I would not be able to put down in words. Or I could tell you about the castles, that are stunning (but mostly rebuilt from after war), but I could never explain the memories and the passions built in the stories that our driver did. Thank you so much Laura! <3 Bottom line: If you came to read the reviews it's probably because you are unsure if it's worth your time&money. I've already given you the answer so: there are LIMITED spots, don't waste your time, just book it. By the time you read this might be none left, sorry. To the lonely travelers: best opportunity to make friends!!!
Great trip thanks!! Hill of crosses was great. The only thing bad was that the castle was closed.
"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.
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!
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
"Highly recommended "
The guider is really enjoying what he is doing that where the naturality as a guider. The best way for Riga-Vilnius while stopping at places to go with details explanation of the places and country.
"Great day, awesome guide"
This day trip lets you discover so much of these amazing countries that you would never know if you only visited the capital cities. The Baltic countries are all beautiful and unique, with a complex history and so many interesting sites to explore. This day trip gives you a taste for all of it - sobering war camps, beautiful gardens, (tasty) reindeer farms, the awesome hill of crosses, and even sunset over the castle at Trakai. But enough about the countries - the real highlight was the tour guide. Imagine a viking crossed with a teady-bear, and then topped with a playful sense of humour and a deep, honest interest in everyone he meets. Oh, and did I mention he sometimes gives you chocolate? Laurynas made the trip fun, educational, and inspiring. His passion for the Baltic countries, and their history, was entirely contagious. Also, he has really good taste in music playlists! I can't recommend this tour and the company any more highly - just book it!
"Fun and interesting Riga to Vilnius trip. "
This was a great way to travel from Riga to Vilnius. Although 12 hours sounded like a long day, it went surprisingly quickly. This was certainly helped by our knowledgeable and friendly driver (Lau), his good sense of humour and excellent choice of road trip music! Our stops were all interesting and lunch was also well priced and tasty. Traveller Tours were also quick to reply to email and booking enquires. I highly recommend this company and their tours.
"The best way to travel from Riga to Vilnius! "
This was the ideal way to get to know more about the two countries, see some of the iconic sites and get from A to B. Laurynas brought history to life and took very good care of us. So we were well looked after, had a nice lunch (the apple pie is much recommended!) and altogether a very good time together.
"Learned a lot, great guide "
We had a fantastic day, full of information and impresessions, Lau is not only a great guide but also fun and a good driver. Best way to get from Rīga to Vilnius if interested in more than just having a transfer. Ah, lunch was delicious as well. Loved the little chocolates, Lau, thanks!
"Loved it - great way to get between cities! "
As with most people, I opted to take this tour to see a bit of the countryside of Latvia / Lithuania rather than take the direct bus route. Overall, the tour was great - well paced (we left and arrived on time, and the guide made sure we had ample opportunity to see sites), great information at each stop, and plenty of time to explore independently after the initial introduction to the site. Really enjoyed it!
"Excellent, convenient trip stopping at several major sites!"
I was so happy to discover this tour offering. Being able to not only transfer efficiently between Riga and Vilnius, but at the same time make 5 stops at tourist highlights I had wanted to visit anyway, was really great! This is especially true because some places (like Hill of Crosses) are not that easy to get to by public transportation. In general visiting all these places would have taken me at least two days, so this was really an efficient and stress-free way to travel. Our guide was excellent -- engaging, open, full of information not only on the sites but also on life and current events in the Baltics overall. The small group design of the tour as well as the super reasonable price were awesome as well. This is a highly recommended tour and company. (In fact, I wanted to do some of their other tours organized in Lithuania, but unfortunately at this time of year there is limited availability because of relatively few tourists). I'll definitely consider the Talinn-Riga and other tours with Traveller Tours the next time I am in the region!!!!
This is a great tour to travel from Riga to Vilnius as we saw many important attractions along the way. It's a great way to meet other travellers from all over the world as we had 5 nationalities among the 8 of us! Laura was lots of fun to be with and was very kind to have dropped us off at our lodging. Highly recommend this tour.
"Start as strangers end as a little family"
Travelled from Riga to Vilnius in September 2018 with Kamille. Would definitely recommend this tour transfer. The stops to driving ratio was good and although I would love to have stayed longer in some places it isn't possible without making it an over long day. However because my time in the area was limited it at least meant I saw some pretty great sights. My travelling companions were lovely, a group if strangers who ended the day as a little family on the bus
"It is the highlight of our trip! "
I am glad that such a wonderful idea with one way travel is created by this company. The itinerary is well planned that covered most of the interesting sites, like the round Palace and the hill of the crosses, the Trakai castle island and Kaunas. All in one day! You save a lot of time and money. The guide, Laura, is very professional and full of enthusiastic in telling us about the history background of the sites. We had a great time and good weather. I really recommend this tour to everyone! It worth the money!
"Enjoyable tour with lots of sites."
Really enjoyed the tour and learnt alot about Latvia and Lithuania.
"Great way to get from Riga to Vilnuis"
We had such a good tour from Riga to Vilnius. Our driver/ guide was excellent. He was knowledgeable about the sites and history. He made the trip a lot of fun and he had a great sense of humour. Also he was a very safe driver.
Omg. So much to say!! Alina?? Or Alona? A lithuanian chick was our tour guide. Totally hilarious and friendly!!! I kept getting lost on private walks but she was my hero!!!
"Great way to see more of the countries"
This was a great way to see more of the countries. The tour guide gave some good personal stories and there was a good mix of personal time vs. being guided at the stops. The vans are comfortable. Overall I would highly recommend the tour to others
"Interesting and enjoyable "
The bus took us from Riga to Vilnius with stops at points of interest along the way. First stop was at Salaspils memorial, that opened up a whole area of history to us and was very moving. We’d have liked longer here to see more of the museum. The next stop was Rundale Palace, a stunning surprise with gardens to rival Versailles. We had lunch at a restaurant offering traditional Lithuanian food, with venison on the menu and limited vegetarian options. The Hill of Crosses in North Lithuania is surely unique; we saw two bridal parties there and our guide explained the custom. After that was Lithuania’s second city, Kaunas; we could have done with less time here. Final stop was the really beautiful Trakai, It was a fine evening and a stroll was welcome, unfortunately the castle was closing so we couldn’t go in. Some people sampled a famous local pastry speciality. Our guide Kamile was excellent, engaging, knowledgeable and with first rate English. All in all, we’d highly recommend this tour to anybody who wants to learn about life in the three Baltic states, past and present.
"Day Trip Riga to Livnius"
This was an excellent day stopping at 5 very interesting sites along the way.
"Brief and quite interesting"
It was run nicely and professionally by th guide whose name I can’t remember right now. We saw interesting places and everything went nice and smooth. The guide is professional and ready to answer to the questions I had. The only thing is the restaurant stop: I would change that restaurant, the entire personnel was frozen with no emotion towards customers. The weitress was extremely distant and did the basic.
"Best way to travel"
We couldn't have asked for a better day day. The sights we visited were fascinating (especially the Hill of Crosses), the countryside interesting and our guide informative. Would highly recommend this tour.
"Best Way to Get to Vilnius"
It didn't seem like a long day but we left Riga easily and after stopping at monuments, castles with lakes and gardens, then the Hill of Crosses arriving in Vilnius for dinner made for an easy, stress-less day. Great experience especially with our driver/guide Adams ability to keep a rapid pace through the day.
"What a great adventure!"
I was so glad to have found this company. My original plan was just for a quick an easy way to get from Riga to Vilnius. The opportunity to combine it with a sightseeing tour along the way was fantastic. Got to visit a lot of places I wouldn't have been able to see on my own. Highly recommended!
"Exceptional, truly the best!"
The best tour you could ask for. Our tour guide was passionate, knowledgeable, personable and oh so thoughtful and kind. The sites we stopped at were terrific with enough time to explore after our guides explanation. He provided so much fun and the group of 8 were so happy with the entire day. Over the years we have gone on a number of tours, but this young man stood out above all others.
"Awesome way to get from Riga - Vilnius "
This is a great way to get from Riga to Vilnius! Our guides, Anna and Laurynas, did an amazing job. They were friendly. personable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend checking this tour out if you are traveling thru the Baltic's.
"Excellent transit between two countries"
Adam was safe-driving, interesting in his explications, open to questions and suggestions, and well in time for the arrival
"Highly recommended ! "
Perfect way to travel from Riga to Vilnius with multiple stops in between to go to places in the middle of no where / without easy access with public transport. Our guide Alina was super fun and informative about everything.
"Tour stops at all the important places between Riga and Vilnius"
We saw everything we wanted to see. We had 8 tourists in a 9 passenger van. It was great. Another van with 8 more was with another driver and van from same company. Our guide was excellent. He was from Lithuania and spoke excellent English. He drove carefully as well. It would be nice to spend a little more time at some places, but if you did you’d get into Vilnius even later than 9:15, like we did. If it left at 8:00am, you’d miss the museam at Salispils. In the end, it was the perfect tour. We saw what we wanted to see. We got from Riga to Vilnius. And, the value of the trip was very good. I seriously recommend it.
"Laura, the best guide ever!"
The trip itself was very interesting, but Laura with her gags and her simpathy added something more. PERRRFETTO!!
Places were intersting, guides were smart and professional at the same time. An excellent way to travel. Highly recommended!
"Anna is fantastic guide!!"
She is very nice and smile...beautiful trip!!
Awesome tour that was well worth the money. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She also dropped us off at our hotels which was very nice of her. Thank you!
"Very nice and relaxing "
Very pleasend experience with a good guide. Visited interesting places in the countryside
"Great way to travel from Riga to Vilnius"
While this leg offers a little less than the Tallinn-Riga leg in terms of the itinerary, Mike was an amazing guide and made the trip super enjoyable through his stories of the Latvian culture. We had nice conversations about our mutual traditions, cultures, people - way off the playbooks if I might add - which gave the trip a warm little touch. The sightseeing tour is a great way to visit places that don't usually fall on people's itineraries, as well as a great way to relate to the histories of both the states.
We are a couple with a small kid and have joined the private tour from Tallinn to Sigulda. Our guide, Trinn, is a very attentive person and had taken care all the need of us, especially for the kid. We have visited the recommended spots to feel the natural environment of Estonia and Lativa. She has also explained a lot the history and society of Estonia which let us have a more clear understanding of the region. We do have plenty of chatting on whatever we are interested and have enjoyed a great day. She had also shared her childhood life which made us fond of the living here and we especially thanks for telling us to pick the natural blueberries. We do recommend to join the tour to see and feel the Baltic area.
A perfect way to go from Riga to Vilnius and seeing many interesting sites you wouldn't see without a private car. 5 stops, max 8 people, a comfortable bus and a guide for 12 hours for 55 euros is really a good offer. Our guide Adam was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Really a good choice!
It was fantastic. Lau, our guide is very friendly.
It was an excellent way of travelling from Riga to Vilnius with this tour rather than taking a direct transfer. Our guide Laura was exceptional! She provided high quality information about the region in a very entertaining and energetic way. She has also created a very warm and friendly environment for all tour participants. I would recommend this tour to anybody who would like not to miss the nice spots between these two cities.
"Excellent program. Educative and exciting"
The locations we visited were far from the main cities and would have probably been missed if it wasn't for this tour. the stops not only contained a beautiful scenery, but also great stories that will let you get a deep insight into the country, especially with a guide so enthusiastic and proud of her culture.
"Best way to travel between cities"
We had a fantastic day out with the added bonus of getting to our final destination (Vilnius). The 5 stops are very interesting and Karolis, our guide was very knowledgable about both countries - his passion is Lithuania though ;) He pointed out interesting things on the way and we had the added bonus that he is a biologist who knows much about the flora and fauna. The small group suited us perfectly and we had fun!! I can recommend Karolis - safe driver and a fun guide.
"fantastic trip and best guide/driver/animator LAURA"
My husband and I travelled from Riga to Vilnius with sightseeing bus and our guide was Laura. We mostly travel without a group but we did not want to drive or use bus and see a bit more on Latvia and Lithuania. We got more than we expected. Laura answered all our questions on both countries. We had a nice lunch on our way. We had fantastic time, and what is more insider tips of Vilnius. I got this tour via internet and they were true proffessionals on time and well informed. The tour from Tallinn to Riga was full 20 days ago. Be sure to book well in advance. Thank you again Laura for this incredible trip.
"Energetic, lively, and informative! "
Laura is such a fun tour guide! Her great personality truly made the tour extra special! She was engaging and her information made the history of Latvia and Lithuania come alive. We (my daughter and I) highly recommend these tours for the Baltic’s as this was our second time traveling with them and we had a wonderful experience both times. They really know how to pick warm-hearted and energetic guides! So happy to have met Laura!
"Perfect when you have only a few days"
Our guide Laurynas was perfect : he’s genuinely a good person who is dedicated to his work and very competent. People who were with me were very nice as well. I finally came back to Trakai by myself (it’s only 2 euros by bus from Vilnius) just to swim in the lake and it was lovely. So if Laurynas invites you to do it at the end of the trip, don’t hesitate, I definitely support you to do it in case you won’t have time to go back later. I was to shy and I regret it. Good luck to our guide in his future and all the people I shared this tour with.
"Adventurous inter-city bus tour!"
I found this an exciting way to travel between Riga and Vilnius, it is a long day, but an adventurous alternative to a standard bus trip between cities! It's also an opportunity to cover multiple sights in one day, that you may otherwise need to visit on individual day trips from your base once there. Our guide was very energetic and engaging, passionate about the history behind these countries and the sights we visited, full of interesting stories and anecdotes which add to the experience! There were plenty of stops along the way, so you never feel as though you're stuck in the car for very long, and a lunch break too which was a late change due to the first choices being booked, but a great authentic restaurant in a beautiful countryside setting.
"The best way to go from Riga to Vilnius"
This tour was one of the best parts of my holiday. Great sights on the way from Riga to Vilnius, fantastic guide, learned lots, and the others in the group were great fun. Special thanks to our guide Laurynas - you made us laugh so much whilst also teaching us so much. Thank you! Highly recommended.
"The BEST way to get from Riga to Vilnius!!"
This tour was an incredible way to see sites outside the capital cities and learn more about the culture and history from a local guide. Speaking of, Laura was AWESOME! She is super passionate about the region and was a joy to spend the day with. The sites were all unique, and I’m very glad that the tour made it simple and enjoyable to visit all of these great places. I highly recommend this tour!
"Great trip with our great guide Karolis"
The tour from Riga to Vilnius was simply superb. Our guide Karolis was very knowledgeable and interpersonal and we were very happy with his company. Thank you, Karolis!
"Awesome tour "
Wow we had a great time- we really enjoy our tour bus trip! The guide was excellent and made the trip a memorable experience - he was knowledgeable, funny and genuinely friendly guy. The drive was long but he made it fun. We have seen some really beautiful sights and fell in love in the Baltic history and culture. Would definitely recommend this to anyone and we are really happy we booked it:) and based on that experience we hopefully book again!
The best way to travel from here to there. My Lithuanian friends were very impressed with all that we had seen and done. A great introduction to Latvia and Lithuania with a fun commentary by our guide Laura
"A great way to immerse in the culture of these 2 countries"
First of all, our guide Laura was this energetic and enthusiastic girl, always concerned about all the passengers' needs. Then, she really could transmit her pride to be both Lithuanian and a citizen of the Baltic. The spots we visited showed us some of the history and architecture of Latvia and Lithuania. On the bus, everybody loved it. And that includes my 9-year-old daughter.
"Best way to come from Riga to Vilnius"
Very nice tour with interesting stops (hill of crosses) and many facts about the history of Latvia and Lithuania.
"Superb value tour"
Wow! This is the way to travel between Riga and Vilnius and see the important sights. Our guide Adam gave us an excellent commentary regarding each of the sights, and filled us in with background material regarding Latvia and Lithuania. It was a long day but excellent value - would highly recommend this tour.
"Tour Riga Vilnius"
Anna and the other guide are very kind and they told us a lot of the history about Latvia and Lithuania. The places that we have visited are very interesting sites.
"Best way to get from Riga to Vilnius"
Getting from Riga to Vilnius wasn't going to be easy, so my partner and I decided we may as well book a tour and see some sights on the way! It really is good value for money, as you stop and visit the Salaspils Memorial, Rundāle Palace, Hill of Crosses, Kaunas and Trakai, all whilst getting to your destination. Our guide, (I think it was Kristel, she had red hair!) was very friendly and just like all the other Traveller guides, very knowledgeable and passionate about history.
"Great tour, great value for money "
Super nice tour guide, very friendly. Great way to see the south of Latvia and north of Lithuania without going through the hassle of renting a car and everything. I would just say that maybe give a little more time to take pictures and walk around would be a plus but apart from that really great tour
"Carpool karaoke through the Baltics"
Our wonderful guide, Laurynas, made the day memorable, fun and informative. He provided helpful information at each stop and answered questions fully. He has a passion for Baltic history and pride in his native country of Lithuania. At the very beginning, he had each of us introduce ourselves -- which helped him learn our names and also helped us learn the names of our fellow travelers. We appreciated his candy treats, humor and constant attention to making sure that everyone was doing well and enjoying the day. After he discovered that we all liked music, he took requests during lunch and downloaded songs for the next part of the drive. What a memorable trip singing along with new friends to our favorite songs! Once in Vilnius, he made sure we all reached our lodging places without worry. Laurynus is one of the best guides I've experienced, and I've been fortunate to travel to many countries and places across the United States. He's a keeper!
"You're in good hands"
Lau was one of the most engaging, attentive, and hilarious tour guides we've ever had! Like the other tours with this company, he made the Riga to Vilnius trip lively with personalized stories, but what sets him apart are the treats (several local candies and pastries) and dropping us off to our hotels/AirBnB. He also noticed that one tire was low in air, which he quickly discovered was a flat. He found a local auto mechanic, and we were on our way again in 30 minutes! This tour is well worth the extra time and money.
"Misadventures of a Great Adventure."
Well to be honest there was only one misadventure which turned the trip in to and even better one, considering the circumstances. Lao (that's how it sounded and I saw another reviewer spell his name this way) was amazing. SUPER knowledgeable of the sights and areas we went to. Even if he wasn't telling us true stories (which i'm sure he was, because who doesnt believe Americans were the first people to settle in Riga) he told his stories with conviction, which is all i needed. No fake news here. Keep in mind this was a VERY HOT day, so he always made sure we stayed hydrated. Sadly when we were about to leave Kaunas, he did discover the van running low on air pressure and when we went to fill it up, the air didn't hold. BUT, Lao immediately got on the phone and started searching for repair shops and thankfully he found one just a couple blocks away. At the shop we all waited patiently as the tire was getting repaired (30min) which gave the tour group some bonding time. Which was good fun getting to know everyone's story. We had 2 Swedish doctors looking for the New Viagra, 2 teachers from the Netherlands just trying to escape their students, a mother and daughter from Taiwan who were probably on a bonding spirit quest, a young lady from Singapore who just wanted to do all the fun things forbidden in Singapore and not suffer the consequences of corporal punishment, and then ME, the future president of the United States. =) This delay made our timing to Trakai castle Perfect for sunset. Which was one of the bonuses. Also because of the delay, Lao treated us to a traditional Lithuanian....food thing, not sure what it was called but after i ate the first one i ordered 4 more. Also on the way back, since none of us had to be back at any particular time, we took a quick trip to the Hill of Angles, Amazing sight. And of course finally, Lao dropped all of us off at our respective sleeping locations...ohh yeah and we also got chocolates. Good people are hard to find these days. The group i was with seemed like all good people. Great people are even harder to find, and Loa is one of them. Highly recommend this trip, and any of the other Baltic trips this company has to offer. And if you get a chance to have Lao as your driver, you'll be in for most informative, adventurous journey, with treats. =) -Leo
"Informative and Caring"
I loved this tour. I'm back in Canada a couple of weeks later and the tour is still quite vivid for me. The sites were interesting and the guide was informative. We had a family of five with small children and the guide was always solicitous of their comfort and helped the parents with handling the gear that their infants needed. To cap it all off, at the end of the tour he drove them right to their hotel in Vilnius so that they would have to worry about trying to find it on their own in a strange city with small children. Great job!
"Loved My Second Tour with Tallinn Traveller"
I took both the Tallinn-Riga and now the Riga-Vilnius tour, and they were both excellent! Mikelis was a terrific guide and a safe driver. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history of the Baltic States. The 12 hours fly by with wondeful stops and great stories. I highly recommend this experience!
Took this tour from Riga to Vilnius. I highly recommend this tour if you are traveling to Vilnius (or opposite direction). All of the sites we saw were great. I have to say that we didn't get enough time at some places, and maybe a little too much in other places, but I think that is just personal preference and the tour is great for getting to see all of the sites, along with places I didn't know about before hand. I would give the tour guide 6 stars if that were possible here!
"Best way to make the most of the journey between towns"
Would highly recommend these tours and thanks to Laura for an awesome day! I’m so glad I decided to do this - small group, comfy bus, delicious lunch (not included in price but was not too expensive) and getting to see sites I never would have had time to see if I’d just gone straight between Riga and Vilnius! It never felt boring/that we were traveling for too long. Personal favourite - hill of crosses!
"Fantastic time exploring sights between Riga and Vilnius! "
This tour is a fantastic way of learning about the history of both places as well as seeing sights you wouldn’t normally be able to see. Highlights included the Hill of Crosses, Salaspils Camp and Trakai Castle. Our guide was fantastic - he made sure that everyone was comfortable at all times, was very engaging when talking about each sight and the history of the countries and also snuck in some personal touches like the incredible pastries we bought near the castle! I would definitely recommend this as the best way of travelling between the two cities!
"Sightseeing bus tour from Riga to Vilnius"
This 12 hour bus tour is professionally planned and executed, starting and finishing on time, with no feeling of being rushed. The 5 places we stopped at are carefully selected to give a mixture of castle garden, history, religion, the soviet period, and a beautiful town and castle by the lakes. The guide and driver (nick named Lao as we probably would spell his proper name wrong) is knowledgeable and entertaining, as well as a safe driver. The van is clean and super comfortable, with air cond a relief from this summer's heat wave. Lots of room for luggage of 8 guests in the back. Great alternative to flight or train or coach. Highly recommended for its terrific value!!
"All about the Journey"
I found out about this tour in Riga and decided to travel with them to Vilnius. Great way to travel to another city, seeing those sights you would normally miss if you were using public transport. I highly recommend this tour, I am upset I didn't know about it when I was in Tallinn.
"Lessons on how to be a guide"
The tour was fantastic but the guide made it outstanding. He was fresh ( despite doing the same thing several times a week ) and enthusiastic. He went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience and even dropped us off individually at our hotels instead of the meeting point. Despite his young age, he was accomplished, funny and creative. The day was so well organized - a treat.
"Very interesting daytrip between the capitals"
If you move from one capital to the next, we do recommend this daytrip in a small group with highly skilled and very friendly guide and driver. You visit interesting highlights, historical sights, have a good lunch and enjoy the landscape. Suits all. A perfect way to discover the Baltics.
Interesting places to stop. Social and friendly guide who gave good (2 not too long) history lectures about the places. Highlight of my trip to baltic states.
"Fun day from Riga to Vilnius "
This was a great way to learn and see that Latvia and Lithuania are more than the two capitals. Lau was a great guide; enthusiastic, personable, and knowledgeable. Even though we were running a late, he didn’t rush us through all the things he wanted to show us. Despite the late hour, he took us to our hotels in Vilnius too. Great service!
"Interesting and entertaining day tour!"
The tour is a great chance to get to know locations he wouldn´t have seen otherwise. It was touching to visit Salaspils Memorial and to hear the heartbeat. It was nice to see the storks on the roofs of Rundale palace, impressive to count the thousands of crosses in Siauliai, interesting to walk through the streets of Kaunas. The highlight was Trakai castle and the Karaites´ houses and Kibinai! Thank you, Lau for this great day!
Lovely animated guide who enjoys her job, good food and interesting sights. Very recommended
"Great informative and fun tour"
The tour is quite intense (12 hours - most of the objectives are not exactly on the main road) and it’s fully worth doing it. Alina is a great guide, who provided lots of interesting facts and useful tips (she also drives very safely). We enjoyed esp. the Trakai area where we returned for a full day experience.
"Laura steals the show!"
Laura was an amazing tour guide. She had so much energy and passion for the sites and Lithuania. it made our tour even more exciting and engaging. We were able to ask any questions and she was very informative about the sites. The sites were great and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Laura even gave us a private audition for her upcoming stardom at Eurovision!
"A good Guide makes a great Tour!"
We took the tour from Riga to Vilnius. While we would have preferred a bit more of free time to explore Kaunas and Trakai, Lau, the guide, was so knowledgeable, so entertaining and nice that it was absolutely worth joining the tour! We learnt a lot and enjoyed Lau's sense of humour. Highly recommendable.
"A tour of a lifetime!!"
Definitely worth taking the tour! AlIna took us through the otherwise difficult to reach towns and was very informative!!
The best way to travel through the Baltics and see more than only the capitals. Alina was a great guide! She told a lot of information and was good fun to spend the day with. In hindsight, we should have done the Tallinn-Riga your as well...
"A Moveable Beast"
We had a great time on our tour. Alina was an amazing guide. So many beautiful and thought provoking places to visit. We had the right mix of explanation and free time.
Guide was very friendly and had a lot informatins
"A great way to travel from Riga to Vilnius"
A good way to see things between Riga and Vilnius you would otherwise have to do as side trips. Our guide Laura, was great. A bubbly personality and the ability to provide the background and history of the things we saw without it becoming to dry. A pleasure to spend the day with her.
"Perfect day to see all major sites"
The tour was super great, We stopped at the most important sites between Riga and Vilnius, saving time and trouble. We were only 8 people in the group, which was perfect for this tour, and we had a fantastic guide, Laura, the best guide you can have. Perfect day with great company
"Awesome fun filled day "
We had an amazing day exploring the country side from Riga to Vilnius. Anna our guide knew all the good spots and had amazing knowledge during our chats in the car. Seriously no better way to travel between the two Cities.
"Fantastic way to travel from Riga to Vilnius!"
This was an enjoyable and extensively informative experience. Our tour guide, Laurynas, made the day particularly fun and productive with his enthusiasm and historical/cultural knowledge. He ensured that everyone's questions were amply answered, provided interesting tips and local insights and brought super energy to the group. I would highly recommend this tour bus!
"Brilliant way to transfer"
We did both transfer tours - Tallinn to Riga then Riga to Vilnius. I wish this mode of transfer was available everywhere! It was so nice to see more of the countryside as we moved between cities - it would be impossible to put together these itineraries on our own without a car. Both of the guides were very knowledgeable and professional. The stops were well chosen, the pacing was good, and both tours offered a very nice selection for lunch (additional cost but not expensive). Highly recommend.
"Laura’s Magical, Musical, Magnicent Bus Trip!"
Laura brings 110% of herself to making sure her guests are happy. It works. Our ride from Riga to Vilnius was filled with fascinating stories, beautiful stops, wonderful walks and an awesome lunch. We’d go back to Riga just for the ride!
"Outstanding Tour With Triin"
WeI had the pleasure of spending 11+ hours with wonderful Triin during our Riga to Vilnius tour on 18 July. Because we wanted sightseeing convenience, we opted to book a private tour. In hindsight, we are extremely glad we did and think that the outstanding services Triin provided us were well worth the additional cost. Triin was charming, energetic, flexible, and informative. Overall, we thought the stops included in the Riga-Vilnius tour were well-paced and offered an excellent overview of the key sights between those two fantastic cities. (We must mention that we loved Tallinn as well, given that Triin is Estonian.) Our heartiest thanks to the Triin and her Traveller team for a job well-done!!!
The tour was a combination of education, hilarity, and fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great time.
"Castles and Cross’s from Riga to Vilnius "
What a great day, our guide was amazing and kept throwing in little extras the tour shows us places I would hit other known or been able to get to and all told with passion and knowledge. Cannot recommend more
"Best way to travel from Riga to Vilnius"
If you have the time, don't hesitate to book this trip, it will be an amazing day. It takes about 12 hours to get from Riga to Vilnius, but along the way you get to see a lot of very beautiful places, full of history, some marked with sadness and tears while others with joy and great stories. Lau was an amazing guide, driver and companion. He was funny when he had to, thoughtful and serious when he had to, while all the time he kept sharing with us the troubled yet inspiring history of Latvia and Lithuania. Hats off to him, he was remarkable! All in all, a day to remember from our trip through the Baltics.
"Don't miss this tour!"
The tour from Riga to Vilnius was amazing! The guides, Anna and Laurynas, were very gentle and good prepared! Their presence made the tour even more interesting! I recommend this tour!
What an excellent way to travel to Vilnius and visit the sights not often accessible to tourists. We had a small group of travellers and a passionate and knowledgeable guide. Our guide made history come to life - with her interesting stories and perspectives throughout the day...going the extra mile to be sure we all enjoyed the day.
"Great trip with a great guide"
Alina was a very pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful and fun guide. She exceeded my expectations. I was a bit hesitant to take small group tours such as these but it was a great decision in the end. The travel was very smooth, not rushed, well-explained and well organized. Special thanks to Alina who really showed passion about about her job; meeting other people, showing her lovely country Lithuania, and telling wonderful stories that made the places much more alive and meaningful. The van was a comfortable vehicle and those in the group were nice and fun too. I enjoyed the trip much. I highly recommend this travel company and their lovely guide. It was a great experience at a very affordable price.
"Best way from Riga to Vilnius!"
Initially, I was just going to take an express bus from Riga to Vilnius, but fortunately I stumbled online to this tour. It was fantastic! It was a great value. I had wanted to go to some of these sites and this was the most efficient and cost effective way of seeing them. Adam, our guide, was fantastic. This is definitely a must!
If you don’t have a car but you still want to see important spots from Riga to Vilnius this is your tour!
"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!
"Very poor quality"
The tour itself was well organized, but Kamile the tour guide managed to gave me a very negative vibe. Yes, I am coming from Eastern Europe (Romania) but so is she (Lithuania). I saw a dog alone close to Vilnius and I asked her if Vilnius has stray dogs and she told me: Not as many as Bucharest and she also made some other undermining comments about Romania. I don’t need to be put down by a tour guide that I paid for a service. I arrived in Vilnius feeling very sad and humiliated also. And not to mention the little car accident on the way when she made space for a car from the lateral side but forgot about the car behind us, she stopped the car too fast for the car behind us to have time to react so the car behind us hit us, no one got injured but I got very scared since I am recovering after an ankle sprain.
"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.
