We had a fantastic trip to Riga with Laura (pronounced Lau-Ra). She was a very energetic, positive and very historically informative guide. You could not ask for a better guide! The van we rode in was spacious enough for 8. The van was unmarked by advertising/logo so we did not feel like a marked' tourist. There were so many great sights to see along the way. We particularly enjoyed the Trakai Castle and Hill of Crosses. I highly recommend taking the trip to anyone wanting to see sights outside the Baltic capitals. See the real countryside!

Thank you Laura!

Über-ultra-super-mega-trip!!
I loved the trip!! The stops were really key spots to visit and the tour guide was really nice, friendly, funny and provided us with interesting facts. A tour that one must do to better travel between the Baltics =)

A perfect trip!
Ok, my opinion could be affected by the fact that everyone on this tour was extremely nice: starting from Laura, our funny and exuberant guide, to the other amazing travellers with whom I soon formed a little family! The trip itself went through several locations which covered both the cultural/historical aspect and the sightseeing one. I learnt a lot of interesting facts well explained by Laura, who often also put a smile on our faces. I'm really glad that I joined this tour and I totally recommend it!

Nice way to know more about Baltic countries
We were a group of four friends that had just a week to visit Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. This tour made us to know more than Vilnius or Riga, making friends and assisted by Laura, who was very close and nice. We liked the places we visited in a minivan for 8 people. You are allowed to talk, to drink or eat in the minivan and the fact of being just 8 provided us agility and comfort.

Informative and fun tour
It is really great time joining the tour by learning a lot inside political and history stories we can not learn from other places. Ruta, she is a great guide speaks perfect English and very nice girl. We have fun even though it is a long driving while touring on the way from Vilnius to Riga. It is very impressive experience joining the tour.
