Take a trip from Riga to Vilnius and on the way learn about the history and people of two countries. Our knowledgeable local guides take a small group, maximum of 8 people, for a fun filled 12 hour road trip through Latvia and Lithuania (click here to book this tour the other way – from Vilnius to Riga).

Visit the monumental Salaspils Memorial Ensemble to victims of Fascism near Riga to learn about the II World War in the Baltic countries. Be amazed by the Rundāle Palace that is considered the grandest stately home in the Baltics and a true gem of Baroque architecture and of South-Latvian countryside.

Once in Lithuania we’ll visit the Hill of Crosses that is a famous pilgrimage destination and a site of resistance against Soviet occupation. Walk the streets of Kaunas, the once capital of Lithuania and a city that is rich with history and culture. See the beautiful riverside and the many lovely churches in the Kaunas Old Town.

On the way we’ll make a stop for lunch so that you can try some of the local food. Kindly let our guides know if you have any special dietary needs that we should take in account. Location of the lunch is subject to availability and the meal is not included in the price of the tour.

Please note! Based on our customer's feedback, we realised that people want to rush less and spend more time at the spectacular sights of Rundale Palace and the Hill of Crosses which are quite hard to reach. Due to that we've decided to leave Trakai village out from the tour to be able to spend extra time at other stops. Trakai is only 30 kilometres from Vilnius and is very easy to get by public transport.

"Must See Sights from Riga to Vilnius!"

Such a fun trip from Riga to Tallinn. I’m so glad we had enough people to do the tour as I can’t imagine my Baltics trip without it. All of the stops along the way are “must see” so this is an excellent way to do a road trip but with a local guide. Laura was so energetic and fun and really exuded love for her homeland and knowledge of the history. We paid to do a quick tour inside Rundale Palace (only the gardens are included in the tour) which is good because it started pouring rain. The time allotted for Kaunas was enough to really take in the old town and see the castle. Highly recommend!

"Wonderful tour"

Our guide Laura was not only knowable and enthusiastic but kind. She was given a tour with a 70 year age span and was able to meet everyone’s needs. We enjoyed all the sights more because of her.

"Magnificently diversified"

The tour stops and choices were very educational, entertains and emotional. Mike was a great tour guide/driver. He gave us very insightful accounts on our tour stops. He was very nice, funny, well-informed and very accommodating.

"Splendid way to your and travel "

I don’t often give reviews but I have to say this was a spectacular tour and way to travel. This tour was a great value and effective way to see many different amazing things while also transporting you from Riga to Vilnius, the best possible way to travel because otherwise you would miss so much outside of the city centers! Laura, my guide, was so energetic and happy and was thrilled to share her love for her country and culture. Strongly recommend


Wonderful way to go from Riga to Vilnius. Mike (,Mikelis) was a great tour guide and spoke veery good English. Also funny and informative on the places we went to. Would definitely take this route again!!!

"Great tour from Riga to Vilnius with great guide Laura"

It was a great tour to visit several places on the way from Riga to Vilnius. Our lovely Lithuanian guide Laura was excellent and very knowledgeable! Great to have her as our guide! Our group was just 4 of us plus guide, so very relaxing and at home. Easy to be friends and raise questions on the way. Overall it was great tour, worth the cost and would like to recommend to all who travel among Baltic countries.

Meeting Point

The tour starts in front of Riga Old Town Hostel, Vaļņu iela 43, Riga. Our guide will meet you at the marked meeting point.
