There is no better way to get from Riga to Vilnius. The sites along the way are worth far more than the cost of the transportation. Thanks for this great idea and for fulfilling it in a very professional manner.

Fabulous day!
Had a long but thoroughly enjoyable day travelling from Riga to Vilnius via the Salaspils Memorial, Rundale Palace, Hill of Crosses and Kaunas. Our stop off for lunch was also good, the meal was tasty and good value. The eight-seater transport was very comfortable and air-conditioned and the itinerary interesting, but the real star was our guide Laura, from Lithuania. It's not often you meet a guide so energetic, knowledgeable, friendly and with near-perfect English. Such a lot of fun too, an absolute gem. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone, many thanks Laura!
A reluctant 1st tour bus experience
I am so glad I chose to use this way of getting to Vilnius from Riga. The mini bus travel was comfortable, and our guide was great. There are only 8 travellers maximum to a group plus your guide so it’s a nice size.
The places we stoped off at were really interesting and I would love to have done more of these tours whilst travelling.
I have no doubts in recommending them, particularly as a solo traveler; it was nice to connect with people for the day.
You don’t get much time in each place but it’s quite a long day and so I think they’ve got it about right.
The restaurant we stopped at served delicious Lithuanian food at a good price.
All in all it was hassle free and a great experience.
There ist more than just Riga and Vilinius
Instead of driving just 4h on the highway we decided to do this 12h trip in a small group. With perfect weather we visited the impressive Salaspils Memorial. After that we had a stop at the Rundale Palace, which is like a "mini Versailles" out in the nowhere. After a nice Lunch we were amazed by the hill of crosses. The last stop before reaching Vilnius on time was the nice Town of Kaunas where my girlfriend and I enjoyed a nice Apero on the plaza. We enjoyed the trip in which we became not only additional sights to see but also got interessting Informations from our tourguide Ruta.
Very enjoyable tour
Our guide Ruta was great. Everything was smooth and everyone had a good time.
Great way to travel between two cities
I would thoroughly recommend this trip. Very interesting itinerary with the opportunity to see a lot of the countryside. Our guide Camille was great too - and an excellent driver. I wish there were more trips like this between cities.
