Nice trip
It's a good choice if you are in a rush
We hopped on a spacious van at 9am. Mike was our guide and brought us to the spots accordingly. He explained history of everything and we were happy to talk to a local like him.
Pity that we are traveling in mid-October, as we headed to the last location at Trakai, It's almost dark and we skipped that one. (we spended another day to visit there.)
Very nice day-trip from Riga to Vilnius
Im very glad I could do this trip and visit places in Latvia and Lithuania I couldn’t go to on my own.
Laura, the guide was very positive and interesting. Everything was on time and according to plan. Only good surprises!
I just consider that Kaunas wasn’t that interesting (sorry) compared to other places and passing it would allow to spend more time, in Trakai castle for example.
Anyway I would definitely recommend this trip to whoever wants to discover Baltic countries, patrimony, history and culture.
Thanks a lot for the experience :)
The Best Way to Experience the Baltics: Riga-Vilnius Sightseeing Tour
Our Riga-Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus provided an amazing snapshot of the Baltic region. Majestic monuments, picturesque palaces, exquisite local cuisine, postcard-perfect cities, verdant countryside -- our day trip from Riga to Vilnius was sensational. Our tour guide, Alina, was exceptionally knowledgeable. She not only answered all of our questions -- but also provided stories of the region which enriched our cultural understanding. We lucked out with a dazzling autumn day and excellent company. In short, it was the perfect way to travel.
Wonderful Tour!
I truely enjoyed the tour. Though weather was not great, the guide was good enough to cheer us up and he used music effectively to entertain us.
Great
I was lucky to have Laura as a guide. She told clearly and with humor everything we need to know about the places we have visited, and even more.
Camille is great!
Very informative tour to know local culture, food and people! Camille is great as guide, driver, time keeper, photographer and language specialist. I could not only stop by many sight seeing spots but also tried local food. During driving she introduced me Baltic history and languages. I really recommend this tour! Very convenient as transportation and informative.
Well worth it
Informative and comfortable trip. Guides very informative and helpful.
Lithuania land of lakes!
We really enjoyed this tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Lithuania and Latvia.. The highlight was probably the lake and castle near Vilnius.
Awesome way to travel between Baltic capitals
I must say, one of the wisest decisions to select this alternative to travel.
I did the Tallin -Riga one also.
The guides were super enthusiastic ... Lauri for Tallin Riga and Laou for this.
Special mention on Heleen too for communicating efficiently from office.
Will recommend for everyone who want this journey done.

Eventhough its a start-up, will definitely be a huge success story in times to come.

Cheers!

Fantastic Tours
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!
Incredible tour company!!!
I went with three other friends and we booked the Tallinn-Riga and the Riga-Vilnus tours with this company and it was incredible! 2 fantastic days with amazing and fun guides. If you are travelling through the Baltic states I cannot recommend this enough. It really gives you an insight into the three countries.
Amazing, useful and well done
Just a great tour not to mention an informative and traveler-smart way to get between Riga and Vilnius. We saw so many things and just had a wonderful time. Kert was awesome!! It doesn‘t get better than a great tour with a great guide. We really recommend it!
