Itinerary
Tour stops may vary

10:00 – 11:00Bauska Castle

The Bauska Castle sits on a scenery land between two rivers Musa and Memele in the territory of Bauska town. The Bauska Castle complex consits of two parts: the older, the Livonian Order Castle, build in the middle of the 15th century, and a newer, a residence for the Duke of Courland, constructed at the end of the 16th century. During the Great Northern War the Bauska Castle ensemble was blew up by the Russian military. Nowadays the residence of the Duke of Courland is fully restored and is home the Castle Museum, while only ruins remain from the seat of the Livonian Order.

11:15 – 13:15Rundale Palace and lunch time

The Rundale Palace, located just 15 kilometres from Lithuania – Latvia border, was built in the 18th century by Ernst Johann von Biron, as the summer residence of the Duke of Courland. The palace was designed by Italian architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli, an author of the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg.
In the course of time and political rush the Palace has changed many owners and purposes – it was used as a hospital, elementary school or even a grain storage facility. Nowadays, after extensive and successful renovation process, The Rundale Palace Museum and Garden attracts masses of tourists and is deservingly called a „Versailles of Latvia“.

14:15 – 15:15The Hill of Crosses

The Hill of Crosses, located sixteen kilometers from Siauliai city, is an authentic monument of history and religious folk art. This small hill with a collection of over 200 000 crosses is the best repository of Lithuanian cross making art and the representation of unshakable faith and a symbol of resistance against occupation.

Adomas, un guide passionnant
Un trajet agréable avec un petit groupe réduit de 7 personnes dans un van confortable. Les excursions étaient très sympathiques et Adomas, notre guide, nous a donné de nombreuses informations lors des différentes visites. Ainsi, même sans payer les billets d’entrée, nous repartons avec des connaissances historiques intéressantes.

Le trajet passe relativement vite car c’est à notre bon vouloir de nous reposer ou de passer le temps en discutant avec le chauffeur, ravi d’échanger sur n’importe quel sujet.

Je recommande les yeux fermés !

There are at least two companies that offer Riga-Vilnius one-way tours, and to be honest I tried to book with the other company since it included admission tickets and a visit to Kaunas. The other company did not confirm the tour so I booked this one, and I was very happy with the decision. The driver/guide Adam was courteous, professional, and spoke good English. We were in a comfortable van with AC, bottled water, and Adam is a good driver who answered all of our questions. The communications with the company were clear and everything went as planned. The sites are very interesting (it includes Bauska castle which is not offered by the other company) and one could perhaps stay longer in each place, but overall, I highly recommend this guaranteed departure tour if you don’t want to take risks with the other company.
