Lau (sp?) did a great job with the tour/transfer from Vilnius to Riga. He's a great driver, and a really friendly, humorous, and interesting guide. He gave our group a lot of great information about each site, and he went out of his way to make everything easier for us - brought the van to pick us up so we didn't have to walk back, gave us little candies, etc. The stops were very interesting (Kaunas, the hill of crosses, Rundale Palace and Salaspils Memorial) and it gave me an opportunity to see parts of Latvia and Lithuania I wouldn't have seen on a regular bus between Vilnius and Riga.
Really relax and easy tour. We have 8 people in our group, all lovely also. Our guide is also super friendly and helpful. We are so impressed. Surely recommended to friends.
a great day of sightseeing. Lovely and informative tour guide Lau who had both a good sense of humour and a passion and respect for his countr's history
This is a great way to travel from Vilnius to Riga, or vice versa. We set off in a small minibus from cathedral square and drove for about 90 mins to Kaunas, second largest city in Lithuania. Had a short walk around old town and then another 2 hour drive to restaurant near hill of crosses. After lunch at the restaurant three min drive to hill of crosses, 30 mins look round, then on to Rundales palace, then on to Salaspils memorial park. Arrived in Riga about 7pm. The driver was also the guide, he was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English.
We have some stops on our way to Riga and it was funny and gave us many chance to explore the beautiful nature as well as the history of both Lithuania and Latvia. Tour guide cum driver has been enthusiastic and ready to help us during the whole trip.
The tour was fun and very interesting as we discovered a bit more about Lithuania and Latvia history. The stops were well spaced so you have frequent breaks during the journey. The minibus (8 people maximum) is a perfect size if you are not that much into "tour bus" and allows you to discuss with the other travellers and the guide. The guide was very friendly, informative and full of tips to make the most of Latvia. The driving could have been more relaxed though and we found that Kamile was often pushing to overtake despite us then arriving a few hours early. Otherwise a very enjoyable trip.
Everything was great. Lau was and excellent driver and guide, knowledgable and nice person. The car was confortable. Stops were interesting. It is worth.
Our tour guide was Lau. He was just funny, knowledgeable, warm and very well informed. The 4 stops were well sequenced. The 12 hours flew by and the choice of music in the car was excellent. The co-passengers were fun too. All in all, worth every penny paid.
It was a perfect day; our guide Laurynas was a great driver and a great guide, he told us a lot of interesting things about what we were seeing. The group was small: me, 2 japanese girls and a canadian boy! This is the best way to move from Vilnius to Riga (or from Riga to Vilnius), you can see a lot of things and learn very much about Lithuania and Latvia! Thanks for the wonderful day!
Great guide, beautiful sightseeing, definitely best way to travel between countries!
Laurynas and the tour were both amazing. The sites were interesting and he really knew what he was talking about. Food was good and the van was comfortable. Great way to get from Vilnius to Riga.
Our guide Beatrice was very upbeat, positive, and knew lots of great information about each stop. The tour had stops at great tourist locations and never felt rushed. Stopped at a nice restaurant for lunch at well.
A lively entertains trip from Vilnius to Riga. Way better than a bus or plane. Our guide and driver, Laura, presented a current day cultural view of Lithuania, Latvia, and famous sights along the way. Riding in a 9 passenger, air conditioned van, we saw more than all day trips combined as we zig-zagged our way to Trakai, Kaunas, Hill of Crosses, Rundale, and Salaspils. We stopped for lunch at an authentic Lithuanian restaurant. The narrative was entertaining, informative, and funny. I met some delightful people from the UK, Netherlands, US, and Ireland. I would highly recommend it for solo and couple travelers
Kamile, our guide, was great. Friendly, thoughtful and full of information which was great as it is quite a long day. She is also an excellent driver.
The tour/trip was really easy to book and the company were professional and helpful when I had questions. For the tour itself, Kamile made sure we had enough time at each stop, and provided a lot of background and local information to allow us to appreciate each site. If you want to visit the Baltic countries and want to see more than just the capital cities, this tour is definitely the best way to see more of Lithuania and Latvia, and travel to a new destination all at the same time.
We are a family of four, 2 adults and 2 children, and when planning our Baltic trip, were initially looking at all options of getting from Vilnius to Riga (via a flight, train, bus and renting a car). By chance, we saw this tour bus option with Traveller Tours and booked it. It provides an opportunity to see some awesome sights along the way and before we knew it, we had reached our destination. The company uses an 8 seater vehicle which was spacious, new and comfortable. Our tour guide/driver, Anna, was knowledgable, great company and patient - all in all amazing!
This is a clever way to travel between Riga and Vilnius, and breaks up a long journey. We wanted to see 2 of the places we visited, which would have been a day trip if we hadn't used this company. The stops along the way break up a long trip and the amount of time at each one was just about perfect. Our guide was funny and helpful and I felt I learned a lot about both countries from chatting to him. I would have liked a bit longer at The Hill of Crosses, but that's a personal preference, and it was a freezing wind that day!
Una amiga y yo contratamos este viaje sin muchas expectativas y no podemos estar más encantadas. Mikelis fue simplemente encantador, atento con todos los componentes del grupo y muy ameno y divertido en sus explicaciones. Consiguió que nos metieramos de lleno en la historia y los paisajes de estos maravillosos países. 100% recomendable.
Trayecto desde Vilnius a Riga genial! Todo super organizado con un guía motivado, que le encantaba transmitir sobre su cultura y sobre la historia de los países bálticos. Muy recomendable para pasar un viaje aprendiendo y a la vez visitando sitios turísticos. Un 10/10!
Just what we were looking for. A great way to see some of the highlights between Vilnius and Riga. With a very knowledgable, friendly chatty guide. 👍
Kamie was an excellent driver and a guide. A treasure of information and great fun at the same time. We had a wonderful day.
Our guide/driver was amazing. The tour is perfectly organized and you have the chance to see a lot of places badly connected to each other. In one day you can see them all and share this opportunity with some great people!
It was a good way to make a one way journey to Riga. Pick up was on time and at the location stated. It was a small group 5 in total (maybe due to winter period) but no complaints as it was a friendly bunch and more spacious in the van! Kamille was so lovely and friendly. Told us a little about the places we visited. It was a cold weekend but seeing the castle, walking on the frozen lake and the hill of crosses covered in snow was beautiful, also seeing the small town of Kaunas. We took a tour of the palace inside as it was cold, which was so colourful and in the summer the gardens would 've been beautiful. We maybe spent around 30-40minutes at each of the places and stopped for lunch for about the same time. Overall it was well planned and everything was done to schedule so we could see all the places and arrived on time to Riga. We would recommend the trip to anyone wanting a oneway ride. Maybe next time we would take the trip from Riga to Tallinn or even to the beach in Lithuania!
Way better than sitting idle in a bus or train for a long period of time. Lau our guide was great, full of energy on a cold gloomy day! He gave us many interesting facts and was very engaging. We ran into a mini accident so we were not able to enter the Rundāle palace. Nonetheless, Lau brought us in the palace grounds and still gave us an in depth run down of the place. This trip is highly recommended!
Great way to travel between the capitals and see more of each country and learn some interesting history
Laurynas was very knowledged in the histories of both countries and has a great way of storytelling :) The sites along the way are really nice and worth visiting.
It was a cold (and literally dead) day in Vilnius when Laurynas picked us up, but he was able to turn it into a still very entertaining day. The tour was well guided and timed. With sufficient and interesting background informartion on sights we saw, it was a smooth journey from vilnius to riga. I thank Laurynas and my fellow travellers for making the trip enjoyable and very comfortable.
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 😊
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!!
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.
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.
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!
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.
We took the Vilnius-Riga tour for a chance to explore the Lithuanian and Latvian countryside instead of a direct but dull bus - and we weren't disappointed. Karolis was a brilliant guide, very friendly and knowledgeable about all the places we visited and the region in general. The tour managed to pack a lot in without feeling too exhausting. Trakai Castle was a particular highlight but loved every bit of it - a beautiful part of the world and we are very glad we visited!
We did this trip with driver and guide, Lau, on 26th Sept. Fantastic way to get out of the city, see other small towns, countryside and monuments. Fun to travel in this small group and share experiences. Fascinating to have the countries' histories presented in a personal way.... everyone here has a story to tell, regarding them or their family. Lau was excellent and went out of his way to make the day special
The only way to. Go, really.
Great way to see sights that you wouldn't otherwise, great insight from Lau our guide and great way to meet others as well. Much better than catching a plane!
I had never done anything like this before so it was a really interesting experience! I would definitely recommend it as a way of travelling between two cities as long as you have the time. As for the tour itself, our guide was very enthusiastic and informative and each of the sights were unique and played an important part in the history of Lithuania and Latvia, which was great to hear and learn about.
I had the most wonderful time travelling to Riga, on this sightseeing van! The guide was great, fun and kind! I was travelling on my own, but there were 7 more people in the van, most of them travelling also on their owns, so it was nice for all of us to have company for a while! Thank you for a wonderful time!
Our guide was very well versed in the history and places.
We spent such a productive day with our lovely guide. She has a full of knowledge on Lithuanian history. Our tour was a private type, and she guided perfectly and professionally our request. We will definitely look into her suggestions she made during the tour.
We had an excellent time while travelling with Laura. She provided us with many information about the places we visit (Trakai Castle, Hills of Crosses, Rundāle palace's gardens and Salaspils Memorial Ensemble), which were truly fascinating! I strongly recommend this tour!
Very interesting experience with a sympathic guide, I recommand !
It’s great to combine sightseeing with getting me from Vilnius to Riga.
We took the tour to discover the lithuanian and latvian countryside. The guide was very friendly and very informative. We did enjoy every stop. It was raining most of the day so we had to cut it short in some places. Something that maybe can be better would be the time we get to wander alone in the sites (especially at Salaspils where we didn’t get the time to do so, maybe due to the rain...) Recommended tour anyway
A good selection of touristic sites is offered in a kind atmosphere of a small group leaded by a kind and sympa guide. Maybe I'd like to have more time to see one of his places -like the Palace- and make 4 instead of 5 stops.
The trip was nice and relaxing. It went smoothly. Important to note that the guider was great. My family and I are deaf. He has shown respect and courtesy by communicating via texting. We received all information. We re grateful to Laurynas for the great experience.
We adored our wonderful guide and driver, Laura who whisked us from Vilnius to Riga with lots of stops along the way. Really glad we went with this tour instead of hiring a car!
We took the Vilnius-Riga day tour with young and very enthusiastic Lithuanian girl Laura. She knew a lot about the local history and took us to places that were amazing and unforgettable. Highly recommended tour if you are travelling in the Baltic countries. You will get a good historic overview and visit some of the hidden gems that are located outside of the capitals. It was really travelling-like-a-local experience!
If you have a full day to go between cities, this is the way to go! We had a full van (8 people), and our guide, Laura, took the time and initiative to make everyone feel welcome. While there wasn’t a huge amount of time at each stop, but there certainly was enough to see what you have to see. Laura is an excellent driver and passionate guide and cheerleader for her country. Just beware ... there is only one correct answer to any question she asks that compares any of the 3 Baltic countries!! :)
Excellent tour, very friendly & knowledgeable guide, well chosen sightseeing stops on the way from Vilnius to Riga. Flexible, catered to our needs perfectly.
The bus tour was from 9 am to 8:30 pm. There were several stops between Vilnius to Riga as described in the website. In general, the tour guide was very friendly and passionate who told us many interesting stories. However, I wish we could spend a bit more time in Trakai Castle which is really beautiful.
I thoroughly enjoyed the trip from Vilnius to Riga with Traveller Tours. This was mainly due to our excellent guide, Laura, who was very enthusiastic and also knowledgeable about the sites we visited. Laura was also a careful and patient driver.
I really recommend doing this tour if you want to see more of the baltic countries besides the capital. The only downside is that you don't really have much time at the stops.
I could've just went to Riga by normal bus, but luckily I found this online! It was a long day but totally worth it. We stopped five times on the way from Vilnius to Riga. Each stop is worth seeing. Laura, our guide, is very passionate about the baltic countries and her love for her home country made it very informative as she also had some personal stories to contribute that added to the experience. Overall, I highly recommend this very personal tour as you will discover places that you might miss otherwise.
Ever felt you’re a lazy tourist? Want to see the best things on the countryside but you don’t want to bother with hiring a car? That’s why we took the air conditioned minibus trip from Vilnius to Riga. Several short stops showed noteworthy places, explained by the guide/driver. We also stopped by a forgettable restaurant - we ordered our meals well in advance, still we waited 15 minutes from when the first plate was served until the last traveller in the small group got his. This trip took over 12 hours, while an express bus makes the A to B trip in just over four. Traveller’s minibus is absolutely worth it. The stops are short but interesting, except the last one, a freedom monument on the grounds of a former concentration camp. It’s rather close to the city center. On the other hand, this was the place where our guide chose to share a bit of Latvian and family history, much appreciated.
We travelled from Vilnius to Riga. We think that this tour was the best choice during our baltic trip! Lau (our guide) was very kind and friendly and gave a lot of information about the visited places. Moreover, he has a great sense of homour! Although the tour was long (12 hours) it was very interesting and we enjoyed every minute! The other passengers were also very nice, friendly and openminded, it was interesting to talk to each other. We recommend this tour everybody who would like to discover the essential of these countries and get unforgetable memories!
This is such a great trip. Adam was a knowledgeable guide taking us through Lithuania and Latvia. We saw parts of the 2 counties that we would never have seen on a normal coach especially the Hill of Crosses and the memorial outside of Riga. Lunch was very good and, as we had pre-orded, served with the minimum of fuss and waiting time. We expected our fellow passengers to be younger but there was a full range of ages and we had some lovely companions for the journey. On a seperate note, we would like to acknowledge the help from Heleene in the office as we managed to confuse the dates for our bookings and it took a few emails to make sure that it was all sorted. All in all, I can thoroughly recommend the company and the tour.
It was great fun. Long and trying day but absolutely worth it. I would recommend this tour to anyone travelling between Vilnius and Riga. Tomorrow I will be doing the Riga-Talin one. My only comcern was that i was not not informed the departure date of the tour. I sent an email to the office but they rwpliwd the day after when I was already on the tour. This is why i gave 4 stars. The tour it self was good and well worth it. the tour guide was very professional, kind and funny. Very relaxed and easygoing people on the tour as well. Truely enjoyed it.
The whole experience of the tour was great and enjoyable. Our guide was very charming and knowledgeable. We eat awesome food and dessert on our way thanks to his suggestions. The sites were impressive and you shouldnt miss them if you are touring the Balkans. The only thing I would change, it would be better directions/instructions in the email to get to the meeting point. this was a shared opinion among travellers.
Lovely guide and nice group
Excellente journée ave Camille qui est une très bonne guide et aussi une bonne conductrice. Les visites étaient très intéressantes. Je regrette juste l heure tardive pour déjeuner (16h)!
Gut organisiert und Auswahl an Besuchspunkten außerhalb der Stoßzeiten. Hoch motivierte und kundige Reiseleiterin
Our guide Laura was such a lovely person, a typical Lithuanian girl with so much stories and historical informations about both countries. The group was nice , good mood all the way long. This tour is the best way to discover Lithuania and Latvia, highly recommended!
個人だと行きにくい十字架の丘とか寄りながら、移動も出来てとっても楽しいツアーでした。途中のランチも素敵な場所でした。 トゥラカイ城やカウナスは外を見るだけだけど、ルンダーレ宮殿はお庭は見れました。 お花が綺麗でした。 ガイドさんもとっても良い人でした。
It was great. Totally recommend it!
Great tour. Great guide. Pleasant group of travelers
Grat guide and driver.
I was quite fortunate to have Lau as my tour guide. The day started off with a few that decided to skip out, greatly to their loss yet my benefit. This meant a more personal tour with Lau as he drove the van I was in with two others, while the other van followed. Lau was remarkably knowledgeable, entertaining, and genuine. During the journey we not only covered what the tour entailed, but also the sounds and tastes of the country. What otherwise would have been a simple journey to and from with tourism sights along the way, this turned out to be a fantastic voyage that will remain very memorable to me. I would highly recommend this style tour to anyone. If you need to get from A-to-B, why not do it the fun way?
A smart way to move from Vilnius to Riga, exploring different interesting places in one day. But sometimes there's not enough time to visit them properly - especially Rundāle Palace - because of the tight time frame.
We did the tour from Vilnius to Riga which covers 5 spots in two countries. We highly recommend this tour as after the tour your will feel that you know so much more about the history of Lithuania and Latvia. We also want to complement our guide Laurynas for making this a wonderful and entertaining trip.
We are a US couple in our 50s. First time to Baltic region. Took the Vilnius - Rīga trip. When we heard it was 12hours we were a little iffy. However, sunlight is long in the summer and we went for it. Our guide, Lau, made the trip very comfortable and enjoyable. We got to see and learn a lot while being transported between countries. We liked it so much, we booked a follow on trip Rīga - Tallinn. I guess that’s the best reccomendation we can give - we are repeat customers! Thanks for the wonderful service. We are excited for our upcoming journey to Tallinn
We were lucky enough to be the only couple on the tour with the wonderful Triin helping Karolis on his first tour. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough, seeing parts of the country you might otherwise miss and hearing the history from people from the area is wonderful. Triin is so knowledgeable and welcoming and Karolis nature knowledge was a fabulous addition to the tour.
The Traveler Tour turns transport between Vilnius and Riga into a social, cultural and historical experience. Bus rides are boring, but throw together a tour guide-driver, a small group of random travelers from all over, visits to some off-the-beaten-track places, and a delicious Lithuanian lunch and you get a memorable day! I loved seeing Trakai, Kaunas, the Hill of Crosses, Rundāle Palace, & the Salspils memorial. Our guide Laurynas was great, and I came away with a real appreciation of the beautiful Baltics. Highly recommended.
When we first booked I wondered what a 180 mile journey over 12 hrs in a mini bus would be like . It was great 👍 . Laura was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic & organised - brilliant! Fellow passengers really nice .The stops were interesting we wouldn’t hesitate to do it again in fact we’ve booked with you to travel from Riga to Tallinn.
The key difference between an excellent and a good tour is the enthusiasm and charisma the guide brings to make things alive and Laura did a fabulous job of it.
Not great value for money- you don't actually get to spend as long at the stops as they advertise. We had 15/20 minutes per stop which isn't enough time to explore a new city.
I had done the tallinn to riga tour 2 years previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. Vilnius to riga was equally as good. The stops are great and break up the journey well. Guide was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable throughout. Highly recommend these tours to anyone travelling in the region
Such a great pleasure to travel with Triin, and in a small group of like minded people. She is both very informative and at times amusing. The history between Vilnius and Riga is tragic yet hopeful. Sure its a 12 hour trip, but broken up in to sectors its so enjoyable, and at the end we felt sad to leave new friends.
It is a fun trip with Triin humorous way of telling us the history of both Lithuania and Lativa. The routes are well-arranged but if there is some more time and able to visit the interior of Rundale Palace, the tour will be perfect.
Sweet & magical. Thank you, Laurynas!
What a great way to get from point A to point B with a friendly and helpful Vilnius born guide. The first stop is Trakai where you learn the history of Lithuania and get time to walk around the castle grounds and take in the views of the lake. Next up is Kaunas, the other capital of Lithuania where you get to see castles and river views. Our guide ordered our lunch ahead of time which was good because from Kaunas, it was 2 hours away but the food was great and it is a good time to try Lithuanian food if you haven't already. Gotta have that meat and especially potatoes. The next stop was about a 5 minute drive away to the highlight of the trip: the Hill of Crosses. Now Lithuania doesn't really have hills so some people might not get what they expect but the site is gorgeous and you definitely have to walk up the hill to the other side because there is so much more to see. Bring your own cross to leave behind to the ever growing "hill". Next we crossed over to Latvia. Beware, the roads are not good. I am easily prone to motion sickness and our guide did a fantastic job driving but if you do get car sick, maybe take a pill before you leave. Rundale palace was the first stop and it was very pretty and an excellent example of what palaces in St. Petersburg look like. You get time to walk around the gardens where the most prominent flowers are the roses. The final stop was just outside Riga to a WWII labor camp. Though a sad history, it is an important one and here you get to dwell into it. We were dropped off just inside the Old Town in Riga just north of the bus station and the central market. I would recommend this tour to anyone because if you are going to be on a bus to get to Riga anyway, why not see more of the two countries? Our guide, Laura, was very knowledgeable and through in her own experiences of growing up in the Baltics and what it was like for her mother that it made everything seem more real.
We had such a great day on the Trakai tour, my favourite was the nature walk through the swamp and the castles were so beautiful too. We had the traditional "kibinai" for lunch, which was really tasty. And our guide Adam was fantastic, he told us a lot of cool stories and we learnt so much about Lithuanian history. He was very friendly and happy to answer all our questions. We felt like travelling with a local friend. I would absolutely recommend the tour for anyone
It was great to get out of the big cities for a day and see some more of the countryside. Better than that was our super enthusiastic guide Laura, who made the day fun and informative. Totally recommended as a way to get between Vilnius and Riga and seeing the sights.
We had a very enjoyable day despite having a long drive! The stops break up the journey and Alina was an excellent guide, friendly and informative and had time to answer all of our questions. Alina even drove us to our airbnb when we arrived in Riga! All of the stops were great, especially Trakai which was beautiful. Would definitely use one of those tour buses again!
Laurynas was an excelent guide, tooks to some great places, and gave us loads of information about the sights and the customs of both countries, which made the trip even better. Really recomend it!
Lair saw me shivering and cold and heading back early from the garden. He lent me his hoody! What a doll! He was an excellent guide. I didn’t love the sites your business chose for the stops and meal but I really like getting out and walking around en route.
Greatest way I’ve travelled between two cities ever.. so glad I booked this tour.. got to see so much more of the two countries than I would in a normal coach trip. The guide was attentive and knowledgeable, really friendly too. Thank you!!
My husband and I had a great day learning the secrets of Lithuanian history and visiting places we never knew existed. Our Guide Laura was fantastic, she was so energetic and told us a lot of fun stores about Lithuania and its past.
Fun day exploring places I had never heard of before. We had a great local food for lunch. Grutas Park was the most memorable place with the old Soviet monuments. The guide was very energetic and answered all our questions. I absolutely recommend taking this tour.
Amazing tour with a lot of great sights and fascinating information. You see both nature and culture. Completely recommend.
We are not really "tour bus" people, but we were traveling with my elderly father and wanted an easy way to see many sites. We looked at renting a car or taking a direct bus, but we are so glad we opted for this tour. Our guides were knowledgeable, good natured, responsive and very funny! The sites we saw were really interesting, and the time flew by. We surprised ourselves in concluding that this was one of the highlights of our 17 day trip. Go figure! Thank you for a wonderful multi-generational experience!
Our guide was informed and personable. Beautiful countryside with well planned stops to stretch our legs at unique sites that we would otherwise not had the opportunity to see. It gave us a chance to have some down time in a busy itinerary and it was nice to let someone else do the driving. The stop for lunch was a lovely site with good food. We had the chicken breast and the ham/cheese crepe. It is a long day but naps are free during the drive ;) My only suggestion would be to clarify exactly where in Cathredral Square pick up will take place. It is a big square.
We had a smalle group which made the tour very fine. The guide (Laura) was there already early so we could leave on time. From the start she was very enthousiastic in her stories and she was always open for an informal conversation. Nice touristic stops and a good restaurant where we ate. It was a great advantage to hear the stories from a real Lithuanian which made the experience more purely. I would recommend this trip to everyone as the better alternative to travel between the two cities surely with such a good guide.
Our guide was excellent in every way. She was very knowledgeable, an excellent driver, and helped us feel at ease so that we could really enjoy our journey. A great day. Many thanks. Ervin
La tappe visitate erano interessanti. La guida, Laura, aveva una discreta conoscenza, le spiegazioni erano interessanti e facilmente ascoltabili anche non avendo una piena comprensione dell'inglese.
Cheaper than flying and you see everything you didn’t know you wanted to along the way - can’t recommend it enough, the guides were really just awesome people - felt like a road trip with friends.
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!
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!
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.
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.
All our tour guides are young educated locals so the tours feel more like discovering with a local friend.
With us you'll explore the highlights, but also experience authentic less-discovered destinations.
We want everyone to get personal attention from the guide so we aim to keep our groups rather small.
