Take a trip from Vilnius to Riga 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 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. 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. (Salaspils Memorial is skipped from October 15th till April 1st, 2019)

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.

Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor

"Great trip from Vilnius to Riga "

We had a fantastic day exploring the Lithuanian and Latvian country, and learnt a lot about the two places. Our guide Beatrice was incredible. She kept high energy all day and was so much fun.

"One of the best ways to travel between these 2 countries!"

I was happy to be able to visit the Latvian and Lithuanian countryside and learn a lot about these two countries at the same time. The car ride was long but that was also how we got to ask questions to know better of the lands. Our guide, Karolis, also told us many jokes that are both funny and informative! I enjoyed this tour a lot and highly recommend it.

" Excellent guide!"

Our bus had six passengers and a driver. The small number of passengers made the experience much more personal. Our driver Lorinas was very knowledgeable, humorous, and customer centric. He made our journey very enjoyable.

"What a wonderful tour!"

The tour guide was so nice and had very detailed explanations on the spots and the history. I really enjoyed and learnt a lot from this tour!

"Fun trip to Riga!"

This was a lovely day in large part because of our very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. She was friendly, professional at all times and very attentive to the needs of everyone in our group. In fact the group gelled very well which made the trip that much more enjoyable: thank you!

"Kamile was the best! "

We had a great fun group of 8. Kamile was an excellent kind smart guide. Long day but went by very fast. Only negative: van was NOT Comfortable. Whoever sits in front middle seat has absolutely no legroom. Need to upgrade the vans you use especially for a full group.

Meeting Point
