Traveler Reviews

    It was an amazing experience. Highly recommended tour for people having limited time exploring the Baltic states as the tour takes you to the 3 important sites between Vilnius and Riga, Hill of the Cross in Lithuania, Rundale Palace and Bauska Castle in Latvia, in just one day. Definitely worth of money and time. Instead of travelling by plane, I recommend anyone to take this tour because with the private van you can save time by going from Vilnius to Riga and visiting 3 sites in just one day. We had more than enough time to explore each site and thanks to the longer summer hours, too. We were a party of 3 people but I think this private tour can accommodate up to 6 persons in our van. Inga, is an excellent driver and amazing tour guide. She is friendly, patient and knowledgeable. She shared lots of history in the region which we enjoyed so much. Things we read in the internet are different from the information we learned from someone locally. I would recommend this tour to everyone visiting the Baltic for the first time and I would recommend Inga as your tour guide.
