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

Get a glimpse of Lithuanian life outside of Vilnius. We’ll stop at Trakai small town with beautiful narrow streets and an amazing view of the restored historic Trakai castle. You’ll visit Kaunas, the second biggest city in Lithuania, with beautiful churches and picturesque Old Town. We’ll discover the Hill of Crosses that is a famous pilgrimage destination and a site of resistance against Soviet occupation.

After crossing the Latvian border you’ll 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. Before reaching Riga we’ll visit the monumental Salaspils Memorial Ensemble to victims of Fascism to learn about the II World War in the Baltic countries.

"Great trip "

Fantastic trip really great value for money, enjoyed all the stops along the way and our guide was cheerful, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Learnt loads along the way and spent just the right amount of time in each place. Thanks for a great trip 😊

"Best way to travel from Vilnius to Riga!"

I loved this day trip going from Vilnius to Riga. We had a small group, so it was very personable and our tour guide, Laura, was amazing. The stops we made were really the best places between Vilnius and Riga, and at each one we had a little time to check things out. Yes, you may want to spend more time at Trakai, or Kaunas, but because I knew our time was limited we went to these places the day before. We spent our time at Rundale exploring the gardens, if we had more time I suppose we would've checked out the interior too. Truly, the best part of the trip was our guide/driver, Laura, her knowledge and fun attitude kept us all laughing and learning the entire trip. I would definitely recommend this as the best way to travel from Vilnius to Riga!!

"Strongly recommended"

We both really enjoyed this tour: the selection of places to stop was excellent and the tour guide both knowledgeable and entertaining. This is a great way of adding value to the trip between Vilnius and Riga.

"Excellent Tour, Amazing Tour Guide"

As I’m visiting all three Baltic countries, I wanted to see more than just the capital cities. Combining a tour with travel from Vilnius to Riga seemed the most efficient way to do so. And it was absolutely worth the extra journey time and cost. From the outset our guide was friendly, welcoming and super informative. I really enjoyed learning more about the history of both Lithuania and Latvia against the backdrop of autumn leaves and sunlight. My favourite stop was the Rundāles Pils garden, which was amazing. My only suggestion would be maybe starting the tour an hour earlier to beat the sunset to the last stop at Salaspils Memorial at this time of year, though seeing the stars start to come out was quite beautiful anyway.

"Great guide, relaxed tourday"

Our guide Karolis was a superfriendly guide who drove us on time to several beautiful destinations between Lithuania and Latvia. If you would like to see both countries without your own car, book this tour!

"Highlights of Litouania and Latvia"

The tour was very nice and our guide very kind and relaxed. He told us many intetesting details about The Baltics and was very enthusiastic. Nice lunch place also.
