Very prompt pickup and smooth ride from Vilnius to Riga and able to visit the Hill of Crosses without hassle on public transport and walking in cold. Rundale Palace also nice and not many tourists due to low season, but both Cafe and Restaurants not opened and no other time to eat lunch at all.

Felt a bit rush at Bauska Palace and even though castle was closed for renovations, not able to take exterior view since the visit was rush.

Overall good trip and saved a lot of trouble on visiting the spots that locate middle of nowhere between the 2 capitals

Baltic Adventure
Our guide Domas was very pleasant and knowledgeable without being overbearing. We had a very nice day, but a very long day. We did not realize it was such a long ride to Riga and, in fact, had to cancel on Bauska Castle as it was getting so late in the day. As it was, we did not gat to Riga till after dark. Nevertheless, we were very pleased with the visit to Hill of Crosses and Rundale Palace, both moving experiences.

well worth the money
We were planning to travel from Vilnius to Riga, when we saw this tour, and thought “why not”, so glad we did. Pick us was smooth, and our driver was pleasant and professional. The van that picked us up was new and clean, water was offered, and there were plugs for our phones.
The trip was long, but broken up with stops, lunch, bathroom breaks,
The Hill of Crosses is a must-see, and listing to the history is amazing.
Our hotel was in the old city, and our driver dropped us off at the corner

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.
