the tour guide was informative and friendly, van was comfortable and the places that we went visted were well picked. Thanks
Fantastic Trip with Laura!
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 =)
Very good tours with good guides
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 travel guide. Especially Riga-Vilnius was very interesting and we saw a lot of interesting places. The staff is very helpful, Isabel answered all my emails 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.

Two fantastic tours
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 knowledgeable 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.
Fantastic Tour Company!
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!
