Great Tour
We loved this private car tour. The tour says it gets into Riga about 6p, but we wanted to get to Riga earlier. The driver/company said it was up to us how long we wanted to spend at each location. This worked out perfect. We were on our own time. The Hills of Crosses was an experience. Rundale Palace was amazing and Bauska Castle was interesting. We had lunch at Rundale Palace, which took forever to get food in the cafe, but the food was good. We got to Riga little before 5p.

goede tour guide, zowel erg goede gids als een goede chauffeur.
Er werd interessante informatie gegeven in een goede verhaal vorm, waardoor de tour ook zeker niet
saai was.

The tour helps to save time by covering attractions that are far from the city centre while transiting from Vilnius to Riga. The door-to-door pick up service was convenient and saves the hassle of having to find an assembly point while dragging your luggage. The attractions covered are scenic and guide is friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend for travellers who are visiting both Vilnius and Riga.

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.
