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!

Great way to transfer cities!
You get a transfer and get a knowledgeable local and some sightseeing along the way. Can't beat it!
Fantastic Trip with Laura!

Totally enjoyable and interesting trip
I highly recommend this tour. If you have to get from Riga to Vilnius anyway, you might as well see all the interesting sights along the way and learn something about each of these countries. The guide was quite knowledgeable, the stops were exactly what I would have wanted to see and would have taken day trips from Riga or Vilnius to see. The van was comfortable and the lunch stop was quite pleasant. It did make for a very long day, however, and I found that I had to take the next day off from sightseeing in order to rest up after 11 hours of touring and 15,635 steps (and I didn't walk as much as some).

Fantastic tour and highly recommended!
Interesting sights and commentary
Had a great time with Catherine. Very knowledgeable. She went the extra mile to tell and show us what’s interesting.
Excellent
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.
