Tours Kamile (LT) is Doing
Riga–Tallinn Sightseeing Tour Bus
Explore the very best of North-Latvian & South-Estonian countryside on your way to Tallinn.
Kamilė is our ambassador of all things Lithuanian. She has done all in her capability to give people first glimpses to this strange and adorable country and culture - she has volunteered in helping Erasmus students adapt to the place, she works as a teacher who teaches foreigners Lithuanian language and she is currently finishing a degree in Lithuanian philology. Not to worry though, she once admitted to liking the other Baltic countries as well.
In her heart, Kamilė is a nature-loving country girl with a big heart. She loves to travel and to meet new people. She also claims people do not experience awkward silences around her - we can attest to this is after hearing her super-cute jokes.
Kamilė is a great person to take a day trip with because she always knows the best 80s pop song to sing to keep spirits high no matter the weather or time. Kamilė is an incredibly sweet person who will use every oportunity to find the obvious as well as the hidden of the Baltics and show you things you would miss on your own.

Kamile was really well versed and explained every leg of the journey well. We thoroughly enjoyed the journey and also were greeted with the first snow of the season, the spot we stopped for lunch was also quite nice and we tasted local spirits and Riga balsam. The Palace in vilnius and the Christmas markets were all quite beautiful. Thank you for giving us a good time. Regards GB
It was a joy to travel with my driver/guide, a fresh and knowledgeable young women. I learnt so much about the region, its history, culture, economics etc which would not have been possible by any other mode of travel. In this case it was one on one and for me very much worth it. I felt relaxed and able to ask questions at any point. The choice of highlights was spot on from the sobering Salaspils Memorial, the beautiful Runsdale palace, the Hill of Crosses to Kaunas and its charm and history. The Lithuanian countryside and its agriculture was also most interesting to me. Breaks were well timed with an enjoyable time over a meal at a deer farm and some time on my own allowing me to photograph and reflect on things seen. Kamile gave me a lot of helpful information for my time alone in Vilnius enhancing considerably my time spent there. Thank you!
It's fun and interesting, also a a convenient, efficient way traveled from Riga to Vilnius. Kamile is very knowledgeable and even dropped us off at our Airbnb at the end of the tour. Highly recommend.
I already liked the idea when i found this tour on the internet but it turned out to be even better. The concept makes a lot of sense because you get to see a bit more of these underrated countries besides the capitals and visit places you wouldn't have otherwise. Kamile was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly, respectful and a safe driver! Thank you again Kamile! :)
Found this company and tour on line and it sounded really good so booked! Everything was just as described and ran like clockwork but without any hassle or rushing, a great day in a wonderful holiday in Riga and Vilnius. Kamile was bright, cheerful, very knowledgeable, and a good driver. The places we visited were varied and all interesting in different ways. Kamile provided just the right amount of information and we had time to explore on our own. A bonus was meeting all the others in our group, all different ages, nationalities and backgrounds. We will remember them, Kamile and our tour for a long time to come. Highly recommend this company.
This was an amazing experience with a great guide - Congrats Kamile , you've done a great job. On my personal interest I would do this tour with Trakai instead of Kaunas.
We had a great time. Saw alot and made the trip eventful. Kamile was a great guide. Lost of information and flexible.
My boyfriend and I had a blast on this tour! Our guide Kamile was very friendly and knowledgeable. All four of the sights we visited were incredible and we had enough time to experience each place without feeling rushed. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting The Baltics!
This tour is a great way to see Latvia and Lithuania attraction while getting from Riga to Vilnius. It would've taken us 4 separate trips from Riga and Vilnius to see all of the attractions we have covered in one day. Our guide Kamile was very informative, upbeat and also had a good balance of quiet and tour time. Our 16 yo son was engaged and it is hard to please them at that age. I would also give huge praise to Kamille for being super helpful when we couldn't get into our hotel since we arrived late. When I couldn't reach hotel mgmt, I panicked and call the only person I knew in Vilnius at that time. Kamille was happy to help and went on looking into other available hotels even if that was not part of her job.
After we had already been on the tour from Tallinn to Riga we knew a little bit what to expect. But also this tour exceeded our expectations by far. Our great tour guide made our trip awesome with her open nature, her enthusiasm and of course her knowledge and driving skills. Together with the other really nice passengers, we visited a piece of France in the Baltic States, saw an impressive war memorial, another town and admired the Hill of Crosses. The traditional food was also a real highlight for us. We would (and will) recommend this tour to everybody. Thank you very much for this great day!
Highly recommended tour, Kamille was a great driver and hostess.
The tour was great. First our tour guide, Kamile was very good at explaining the history behind the different sites and made sure that we were on time at the van to go to our next stops. The restaurant stop was great with amazing food. The tour will drop you off right in the centre of Riga and Kamile provided us with some recommendations for nice places to eat and hang out in central Riga.
Our enthusiastic and serviceminded guide, Kamile – also being a high speed loving car driver – gave us a good impression of Latvian and Lithuanian history and contemporary lifestyle. This kind of sightseeing is highly recommended.
Really enjoyed our day with Kamile, she was friendly, knowledgable and kind! Would recommend!
Kamile was an excellent driver and tour guide. I learnt so much on this trip!
If you are in the Baltic states and don't have enough time, these tours between Tallinn-Riga-Vilnius are the the best ways to get to know as much as it's possible. Kamile was an extraordinary guide! Thank you for the wonderfoul tour! The only too short stop was in Kaunas, maybe if the bus could arrive a bit later to Vilnius, that would be nice.
My sister and I only had a few days to travel in Latvia and Lithuania, so this daylong tour allowed us to see more of both countries outside the capitals in a really neat way. We loved our guide, Kamile, who told us about each location with tons of fascinating details. The stops each added to our understanding of Latvia and Lithuania’s history and included a good amount of free time to see things on our own, which was the perfect balance. I’d highly recommend this!
Fantastic comfortable drive with plenty of stopoffs, great information from our host Camile. (Just don't trust her food recommendations, i.e. the beetroot soup). Best way to travel....would definitely recommend...
Even though the tour is 12 hours it doesn’t really feel that long. It was really interesting and we never got bored. Our guide (Camille) was super nice and told us everything about Latvian and Estonian history. The locations we visited were very suggestive.
Kamile was a great guide. Great day.. good value for money.. enjoyed every minute!
We had a beautiful tour through Latvia and Estonia. We saw many highlights in these countries, and had enough time to explore these places. Furthermore the guide had many great stories that made the places come to livea I would recommend this tour!
Interesting & a great way to see the country. Fun, genuine guide
Nice tour going through interesting sites. Kamile our tour guide was really cool, telling us stories and the story about Lithuania and Latvia and giving us tips for our stay in Riga. I would prefer to exclude Kaunas from the tour and add more time at the Rundāle Palace (as I personally like to explore the cities with more time) but apart from that all was fine.
Great tour. Very informative. Really enjoyed the venison restaurant. Thanks a lot.
This is definitely the BEST way to transfer between Riga and Vilnius - with four really interesting and varied stops along the way - the Salaspils memorial, the beautiful Rundale Palace (the largest in the Baltic states), the unique Hill.of Crosses, and the very pretty former Lithuanian capital of Kaunas. A lovely lunch stop is also included - venison steak excellent. Our guide and driver Kamile was bubbly, chatty, informative and pleasant - despite having to drive 450 kn in a day! The only suggestion I would make for improvement is that possibly a little longer could be given time-wise at the Rundale palace for those travelers who want to see inside the palace in addition to having a look around the beautiful gardens.
The experience was fantastic. Guide Kamile was awesome. She was very friendly and knowledgeable and always smiling. The food at that restaurant was excellent. Overall it was money well spent. Will definitely recommend others to try out this tour.
We were very lucky with our guide Kamil, she was very helpful, informative, jolly, funny and a good driver too. The stops we made were enjoyable and helped to break the journey. We particularly liked the bob sleigh stop and the national park. It would have been fun to go down the bob sleigh run on bicycles, but we understand the need for health and safety !! We recommend the tour highly especially as Kamil was kind enough to stop to let us off early in Tallin so we were closer to our hotel. Very helpful.
The stops were great and gave me a good look at Lithuania and Latvia outside of the capital cities. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgable with history; which meant that I learned a lot from her. Would reccommend this transfer.
We enjoyed it very much, everything was well prepared. Lunch could be ordered upfront and it was very delicious. Also the car was pretty comfortable.

We travelled as a group of six, from Hong Kong and Japan,. Although we have not been lucky in terms of weather (cloudy and rainy), we were very lucky to have Kamile as our guide. The tour itself was very well balanced in where to stop and what to see; we enjoyed the coutryside and learned a lot about the history of both Latvia and Lithuania. Kamile was also extremely helpful when, at the end of the tour at Vilinius, the hosts of one of our Airb&bs were quite irresponsible and our friends could not enter the apartment. She helped us communicate with the hosts by phone and although it must have taken longer than usual, she's dropped us all at our respective lodgings. Thank you so much! I highly recommend this mode of travel as it is much more fun than flying.
Kamile was wonderful! Great driver and full of interesting information!
Very nice opportunity to see places hard to reach by public transport if you haven't rented a car. Our guide (Kamile) was very friendly, and a good driver!
It was an interesting tour as we saw parts of the countryside that we would not have made the effort or had the time to see. The guide was excellent and the trip was an enjoyable occasion for our diverse group of 3 generations
An excellent way to travel from Vilnius to Riga, tour was very well organised splitting up the journey and enjoying good sightseeing places. Definitely recommend. Our guide Kamile was very good and happy to answer any questions.

The sightseeing tour was a great experience. The stops along the way made the transfer between Vilnius and Riga a great and interesting experience. With our great guide, we had a good time and I can only highly recommend it!
Tour was great and so was the guide. I am aware that visit to Trakai was recently taken off the scope of this tour. But I think instead of Rundale Parish, Trakai still would be a better alternative. The Parish is nothing other than an old mansion on a poor garden. I believe that part should be reconsidered. Other locations were cool places to visit and our guide was really amazing. I am thankful that I took this tour!
This was a great tour to make the most of the day travelling between Vilnius and Riga. We had various stops at interesting historical sites in Lithuania and Latvia (as well as a rest stop for WC use and snack buying). Kamile was open to all questions and clearly communicated to the group the timeline for the day. There is a lunch break but it is good to come prepared with some snacks for the morning and afternoon rides.
Kamile is a fantastic tour guide. Passionate, enthusiastic and caring. A proud Lithuanian. In her own words, "gentle as chamomile tea but also lively as a shot of red bull :)" (Kamile made a genuine effort to help two other travellers who had an erroneous booking, ensuring their trip to the next stop was secure. Simultaneously dealing with a rude parking inspector eeeks.) I really enjoyed the sights, the narrative, the history of Baltics and the delicious cuisine. The tour itself is a brilliant idea for any traveller to witness the regions and get from A to B. Highly recommended and well done Kamile!
From our friendly, knowledgeable guide Kamile to our interesting co-travelers, this was a fun and informative series of visits from Vilnius to Riga. The most powerful one was in Salaspils where Kamile shared her own family’s suffering at the hands of the Soviets. It spurred a fascinating discussion linking the horrors of the Holocaust to those of Soviet occupation. One of the guides from a companion group joined us, adding much to the give an take, There was much to learn and much to acknowledge. But there was also the opportunity for interesting and friendly chat over a tasty lunch. Our group was very international, representing 3 continents. Many thanks also to Kamile who offered to drop us off at our hotel at the end of the ride. Much appreciated since we were the “old folks” among these wonderful, youthful travelers. Great to have all the stops along the way, but really missed not going to Trakai. Would have traded Kaunas for that experience, for sure.
A very nice guide. She did her best to make our trip an exciting one. I strongly recommend this tour rather than a direct one.
We took the tour from Riga to Vilnius, and absolutely loved it. Our guide, Kamile, was incredible. She went above and beyond to take care of us and teach us about these places. The stops on the tour were amazing and educational. The lunch that we had was absolutely delicious. We really could not have asked for a better experience. We absolutely recommend these trips to anyone travelling in the region who wants to see and learn a lot.
Our guide/driver Kamile, was excellent. Enough information but not to much and a superb driver . The places we stopped at were varied and interesting and lunch was really good.
We had so much fun traveling with our small group and AWESOME guide from Vilnius to Riga. We explored Kaunas, had a delicious lunch at a lovely restaurant, explored the Hill of Crosses and Rundale palace gardens and even had time to stop at the Salaspils memorial site. A perfect way to go from city to city- see the sites along the way while garnering so much good information from a personable guide and making good friends from all around the world during the trip! What could be better than that?! We usually try to piece together public transportation to get around, but we are so glad we chose Traveller Tours instead. Don't think twice about it, book it!
Everything was fine, good company, beautiful places, nice guide.
What an amazing trip! I would not recommend going from riga to villinus any other way. One of the best tours and kamile was amazing!
This tour is a fantastic way to travel between the Baltic capitals - public transport in these countries is not fabulous but on this tour, you get to easily travel from country to country whilst experiencing some of the sights and history along the way. Our guide, Kamile, was well versed in the history of the region and was a lovely companion as well. The only constructive feedback I have is that two such tours were run that day - I was in a mini bus at full capacity (eight passengers) but the other tour only had three people in the same sized mini-bus...
The tour guide was so nice and had very detailed explanations on the spots and the history. I really enjoyed and learnt a lot from this tour!
We very much enjoyed this tour. It was well organised and the variety of stops was well chosen and gave a fascinating flavour of the history and culture of Latvia and Lithuania. Kamile made the difference though. Her knowledge and enthusiasm shone through and her English was excellent and very understandable.
This was a lovely day in large part because of our very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. She was friendly, professional at all times and very attentive to the needs of everyone in our group. In fact the group gelled very well which made the trip that much more enjoyable: thank you!
We had a great fun group of 8. Kamile was an excellent kind smart guide. Long day but went by very fast. Only negative: van was NOT Comfortable. Whoever sits in front middle seat has absolutely no legroom. Need to upgrade the vans you use especially for a full group.
Great way to get from Riga to Vilnius. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great however still interesting sites. would have liked for the inside of Rundale castle to have been include in price. That with the price of lunch made the whole tour expensive for a family. The lunch however was a highlight, delicious and the best meal we had on our visit! Although we stopped at Kaunas it was late in the day and most museums, etc. were closed. Perhaps another site could be added instead of Kaunas. Kamile, our guide was affable and friendly and helpful. Although a bit expensive we would still recommend this tour as a great way of transferring between Riga and Vilnius.
Tour was informative and as advertised. Would have like to skip Kaunas and instead go to Trakai castle though, as the itinerary included Trakai when I purchased my ticket
We traveled from Riga to Vilnius, all the places were covered as mentioned in the trip. The tour guide Kamile was very enthusiastic and provided every detail of the history behind each place. Trip was overall good but it ended early then the stated time, it would be great if you could add few more places in the trip and have a bigger bus/van so that it would be more comfortable journey for all. Also you could include the entry fee for the rundale palace (I.e for visiting rooms) would attract more customers and people would be able to memorize latvian dynasty.
It was an easy way to travel from Riga to Vilnius. We saw the amazing countryside outside of the big cities...beautiful. The holocaust memorial is so impactful, so well done. I found the hill of the crosses to be less so. The castle was worth the visit but the hour spent in Kaunas could have been by passed...we found a bar and a bottle of wine. Kamile outstanding and her recommendation for dinner proved exceptional.
Well done excursion. Comfortable vehicle, knowledgeable guide and well thought out itinerary.
Great tour from Vilnius to Riga! We enjoyed seeing some out-of-the-way sites that we would never have made it to on our own, while traveling to our next overnight destination. Kamile was an engaging guide, and we especially appreciated hearing about her personal and family experiences as native Lithuanians.
An eclectic glimpse at Lithuania and Latvia other than the capitals. An opportunity to speak with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic local. Kamile was very accommodating, pleasing the entire group of eight passengers.
I am so glad we chose this tour as our transfer from Riga to Vilnius. We visited places that we wouldn't have done otherwise on our own. The guides were fantastic. Loved Kaunas, wish we had 2 hours there instead of one, but do understand it is a transfer tour and is limited to time.
Good tour with excellent guides. Have dropped a star because when I booked the tour Trakai was included but you have dropped it without giving prior information.
We took this tour as we only had a short amount of time available in both countries and this seemed like an efficient way to do it. The tour included 6 of us and then our tour guide Kamile. The small tour group was great as it meant we had some flexibility in what we did and we got to know some of the others of the tour. We got a good amount of time in each place and the whole tour was set at a very good pace. Kamile was a great tour guide and she had lots of interesting stories to tell us about her family who grew up Lithuania during the Soviet times. She gave us lots of information in each place and I felt like I knew quite a bit about Lithuania by the end of the day! I really recommend this tour for the local experiences and to see these amazing sights.
I really liked the tour, and the group I was with. As a solo traveler that was a key element. I got to sit up front which IMO is the best seat. Kamile was really knowledgeable, especially about the Occupation. And she was really helpful when i needed someone to take my picture. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is due to the fact that we didn't visit Trakai even though when I purchased the ticket, it was listed as a stop. I didn't receive a notification and only found out when we drove past the exit. Not cool.
Our guide was really warm, bubbly and knowledgeable, oh, and a good driver too! The stops along the way we’re interesting, especially the Hill of Crosses. I Highly recommend this way of traveling from Riga to Vilnius!
The tour was fun and very interesting as we discovered a bit more about Lithuania and Latvia history. The stops were well spaced so you have frequent breaks during the journey. The minibus (8 people maximum) is a perfect size if you are not that much into "tour bus" and allows you to discuss with the other travellers and the guide. The guide was very friendly, informative and full of tips to make the most of Latvia. The driving could have been more relaxed though and we found that Kamile was often pushing to overtake despite us then arriving a few hours early. Otherwise a very enjoyable trip.
The tour between Riga & Vilnius is 100% worth taking. Great stops along the way, and the best option for getting to Hill of the Crosses. My tour guide was awesome & super knowledgeable not only about the sites we visited but all of the Baltics.
Kamile, our guide, was great. Friendly, thoughtful and full of information which was great as it is quite a long day. She is also an excellent driver.
This tour is an excellent way to travel between the two cities and to see places that one would not normally visit. Our guide Kamile was very knowledgeable and informative on all aspects of Latvian and Lithuanian history and culture. Her presentation and good humour added greatly to the trip.
The tour/trip was really easy to book and the company were professional and helpful when I had questions. For the tour itself, Kamile made sure we had enough time at each stop, and provided a lot of background and local information to allow us to appreciate each site. If you want to visit the Baltic countries and want to see more than just the capital cities, this tour is definitely the best way to see more of Lithuania and Latvia, and travel to a new destination all at the same time.
We booked this tour in the off season, early March, on a Wednesday. Even though nobody else booked the tour and normally it would not run, the team worked with us to find a solution so that we could still go, and we're thrilled with the result! Kamile was our personal tour guide for the day, and she was great. She spoke to what specifically interested us, shared her own stories of her life in the area, and recommended delicious Lithuanian snacks! Would 100% do another tour with this company, especially with Kamile!
Great itinerary and local tour guide is able to share lots of history and story of both the countries. It’s more convenient and time efficient to join this tour than making your own arrangements, covering 4 places while travelling fr riga to Vilnius. Also accommodated to special request to drop some of us at the Vilnius railway station. Many thanks for that. Only comment is the confirmation for non peak season came a bit late. Luckily the tour agent called the day before to confirm participation or I would have missed this trip.
Thoroughly enjoyed my day tour from Riga to Vilnius with Anna and Kamile. Both guides provided interesting facts about both countries, and also shared experiences that their families had dealt with. They were informative, interesting and at times numerous. Lunch was well organised and tasty.
Just what we were looking for. A great way to see some of the highlights between Vilnius and Riga. With a very knowledgable, friendly chatty guide. 👍
Absolutely one of the highlights of my trip! Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable! Great experience!
Very good, helpful & knowledgeable guide, very interesting sightseeing stops. Good lunch break, arrived in Bratislava in good time.
Very nice guide. Kept the tour always interesting. She has lots of patience. It is one of the trip we are going to remember for long time.
Kamie was an excellent driver and a guide. A treasure of information and great fun at the same time. We had a wonderful day.
What a brilliant day from start to finish, Kamile is a credit to the tour company, funny, friendly and a fountain of knowledge. Even dropped us off at the hotel too! Could not have picked a better way to get from Riga to Vilnius. Would definitely recommend this tour. What a great way to get from one city to the another. I was travelling with my 15 year old sons and they loved it too! Our highlight was the Hill of Crosses. Thanks Kamile and Thanks Traveller Tours
Our guide was great, very happy and bright. She gave us a bit of history along the way. She even told us about her own personal family storyies. It was a terrific day, even though it rained. It was a great way to see the countryside and have a transfer at the same time. A very clever way to get from A to B. i highly recommend this tour.
It was a wonderful day. We learned some history and saw the beautiful scenery. And our guide was kind and passionate. Love the trip.
My sister and I opted to take a scenic van tour from Berlin to Prague instead of flying or a bus, and we are so extremely happy we did! Our tour guides were absolutely fantastic and we were blown away by how knowledgeable they were on the history of each town we visited.
The tour was well organised, the guide very friendly and helpfull. We had different nice stops.
We had a really great tour from Riga to Vilnius with Kamile. She kept us entertained and also is super knowledgable and full of great stories. While the tour obviously costs more than public transportation, we felt it was definitely worth it because we saw some places we wouldn't have chosen to see beforehand but really enjoyed, and others which we wanted to see but are really hard to access via public transportation. Unfortunately, due to the shorter days in winter, Trakai wasn't included in our tour, but it was an easy trip from Vilnius, so it wasn't so bad.
It was a good way to make a one way journey to Riga. Pick up was on time and at the location stated. It was a small group 5 in total (maybe due to winter period) but no complaints as it was a friendly bunch and more spacious in the van! Kamille was so lovely and friendly. Told us a little about the places we visited. It was a cold weekend but seeing the castle, walking on the frozen lake and the hill of crosses covered in snow was beautiful, also seeing the small town of Kaunas. We took a tour of the palace inside as it was cold, which was so colourful and in the summer the gardens would 've been beautiful. We maybe spent around 30-40minutes at each of the places and stopped for lunch for about the same time. Overall it was well planned and everything was done to schedule so we could see all the places and arrived on time to Riga. We would recommend the trip to anyone wanting a oneway ride. Maybe next time we would take the trip from Riga to Tallinn or even to the beach in Lithuania!
Great tour, interesting mix of places. Could have had one more spot, but the short days made that tricky. Lovely tour guide!
Just perfect. Very interesting private tour.
Great way to travel between the capitals and see more of each country and learn some interesting history
The trip was excellent. Very comfortable van and our tour Guide Kamile , originally from Lithuania was great.
I had a fabulous time on the tour. It was in a great way to travel between the two cities with lots of different sites to see on the way. Our tour guide Kamil was a wealth of knowledge and her enthusiasm really made the trip memorable for me. Thank you so much!
Rather than catch the regular bus, I did the tour with Kamile. It was vastly more interesting and friendly than an express bus would have been.
Everything was on time and very comfortable. 5 well chosen spots to stop along the way. Lucky with the weather but unfortunately the last two stops in the dark due to short days but both stops are beautifully lit up at night, so it was still perfect in a different way. Guide was very knowledgeable and spiced up the stories with family history. Thanks for a great day.
Camile our tour guide made up for the gloomy, rainy, cold and windy weather by being the most cheerful tour guide i've ever experienced. It was more like having a conversation with a friend more than being with a tour guide during our tour. She really made us feel at home and we enjoyed our trip!
Fantastic trip really great value for money, enjoyed all the stops along the way and our guide was cheerful, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Learnt loads along the way and spent just the right amount of time in each place. Thanks for a great trip 😊
The only way to. Go, really.
Travelled from Riga to Vilnius in September 2018 with Kamille. Would definitely recommend this tour transfer. The stops to driving ratio was good and although I would love to have stayed longer in some places it isn't possible without making it an over long day. However because my time in the area was limited it at least meant I saw some pretty great sights. My travelling companions were lovely, a group if strangers who ended the day as a little family on the bus
The bus took us from Riga to Vilnius with stops at points of interest along the way. First stop was at Salaspils memorial, that opened up a whole area of history to us and was very moving. We’d have liked longer here to see more of the museum. The next stop was Rundale Palace, a stunning surprise with gardens to rival Versailles. We had lunch at a restaurant offering traditional Lithuanian food, with venison on the menu and limited vegetarian options. The Hill of Crosses in North Lithuania is surely unique; we saw two bridal parties there and our guide explained the custom. After that was Lithuania’s second city, Kaunas; we could have done with less time here. Final stop was the really beautiful Trakai, It was a fine evening and a stroll was welcome, unfortunately the castle was closing so we couldn’t go in. Some people sampled a famous local pastry speciality. Our guide Kamile was excellent, engaging, knowledgeable and with first rate English. All in all, we’d highly recommend this tour to anybody who wants to learn about life in the three Baltic states, past and present.
We couldn't have asked for a better day day. The sights we visited were fascinating (especially the Hill of Crosses), the countryside interesting and our guide informative. Would highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was delightful! We would have been fine with more music in the van for the long ride. The sights are beautiful and it was nice to get out and walk around.
Really enjoyed this trip. Kamille was very well informed and made the trip interesting throughout. Her knowledge of Estonian and Latvian history was extensive and made more interesting by personal family recollections. Loved all the places we visited and the activities! Swinging and bob sleigh driving!
Awesome tour that was well worth the money. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She also dropped us off at our hotels which was very nice of her. Thank you!
Very pleasend experience with a good guide. Visited interesting places in the countryside
The bus tour was from 9 am to 8:30 pm. There were several stops between Vilnius to Riga as described in the website. In general, the tour guide was very friendly and passionate who told us many interesting stories. However, I wish we could spend a bit more time in Trakai Castle which is really beautiful.
I used this tour to go from Tallinn to Riga. It was really worth while doing it. We saw little villages that I could not have seen if I had only stayed in the capitals. The guide was very friendly and we stopped in a nice restaurant where we had a very nice lunch. I really recommand this guided tour. I don't remember the name of the guide (sorry). She was Lituanian and very nice.
So glad we took this tour to Riga. The whole experience was fun from start to finish. The only disappointment was that we didn't book onto the Riga to Vilnius trip as well.
Me and my friend took the tour from Riga to Tallinn. There were many great activities on the way, but for us the highlight was the national park. So beautiful! Our tour guide Kamile was so friendly and informative and made the trip super special. She went out of her way to make everyone in the group comfortable. My friend is particularly interested in Baltic history and Kamile shared many fascinating stories with her that totally made her day. Highly recommended!
Very nice guide (Kamile), well prepared and full of energy. Highly recommend!
Really quite brilliant experience on this tour - coming from the UK I hold my hands up and admit I knew little about the Baltic nations and it was a brilliant insight into the nature, history and culture of the area. The guide Kamile was lovely and very informative, took very good care of us catering for anything we needed! We travelled alongside a group of friends from Luxembourg and a family from Romania which was also great for meeting new people and we had chances to share experiences over lunch and whilst exploring the beautiful and interesting locations we visited. So much learnt, so much to admire - for the price it is so worth the experience, the 12 hour journey passed by and it was a shame to have to end it!
Getting to know all about the Baltics' history and culture. Our tour guide Kamile is really enthusiastic about and have a background in the Baltics culture, therefore gave us really informative stories. The tour involved some walking around, but it wasn't tiring, and the lunch was great!
Excellente journée ave Camille qui est une très bonne guide et aussi une bonne conductrice. Les visites étaient très intéressantes. Je regrette juste l heure tardive pour déjeuner (16h)!
Zero hassle way of travelling between two great cities, with stops along the way at locations I would never have found otherwise. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and the sights were amazing. Would definitely recommend.
We took a tour between Riga and Tallin and Kamile was our tour guide, bus driver and our walking talking purveyor of information. We had a great time on this tour and would recommend it to everyone. Kamile comes from the area and has great insight and personal connection which really put things in context. The stops were perfect covering a bit of everything you would want to see history, nature, good food and bobsleighs. We had a lot of fun learning about the area and the time slipped by without even realising. We would like to thank Kamile for the great time we had during the tour.
Fantastic trip, informative, quirky, fun. The trip was made by our guide Kamile - she was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, interested (and interesting), responsive to people's needs. And a superb driver. Yes there is some (well a moderate degree) of walking but all easy. Leave plenty of room for the lunch stop
The tour was fantastic, as was our guide! I loved all the stops, especially the national park. Beautiful landscapes and wonderful towns! We even had a little karaoke session on the longer part of the drive through Estonia! We have the perfect tour size and awesome people who made it all a great trip. It was also special to see smaller towns and to get out of the bigger cities!
We had planned a small tour starting in Riga and finishing in Helsinki before we went back home to Sweden. Instead of just taking the bus from Riga to Tallin we were happy to find a guided tour. Our guide was very good and lively and made the tour to a nice experience. It was also nice to meet some interesting people from other countries since we shared the van with some Canadians and Americans. I absolutely recommend this tour! My favorite stop was in Cēsis.
Kamile treated us to a special tour of local sites. The restaurant served excellent local cuisine. She made suggestions to match our tastes. She enjoyed telling us the history of the country. The military muesum might appear "cheesy" but look closer, and realize the context.
We did the private tour from Tallinn to Riga. It was the best way to see everything in between the two cities. From quaint little towns to lush forests. The amazing sceneries along the journey was eye opening and most importantly. Kamile our lovely driver/guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. Absolutely highly recommended and opt for the private tour option should budget allows.
We spent almost 12 hours discovering some of the most interesting places between Riga and Tallinn, enjoying the tales of our guide. Normally this kind of tours has tight rhythms, but this time I felt it relaxed and relaxing, so it was particularly pleasant. Thanks to our friendly guide and to her sociable attitude I learned many things.
So this wasn’t the fist time I did a tour with Travellers. I also did the tour from Vilnius to Riga. And I was so lucky to have Kamile for both of the tours. She is a very spontaneous woman who can bring a story very well. In the militairy museum she gold us the emotional story of her grandmother. I never thanked her for that so I hope she will trad this. And I think she will.
Not great value for money- you don't actually get to spend as long at the stops as they advertise. We had 15/20 minutes per stop which isn't enough time to explore a new city.
The tour itself was well organized, but Kamile the tour guide managed to gave me a very negative vibe. Yes, I am coming from Eastern Europe (Romania) but so is she (Lithuania). I saw a dog alone close to Vilnius and I asked her if Vilnius has stray dogs and she told me: Not as many as Bucharest and she also made some other undermining comments about Romania. I don’t need to be put down by a tour guide that I paid for a service. I arrived in Vilnius feeling very sad and humiliated also. And not to mention the little car accident on the way when she made space for a car from the lateral side but forgot about the car behind us, she stopped the car too fast for the car behind us to have time to react so the car behind us hit us, no one got injured but I got very scared since I am recovering after an ankle sprain.
