"Excellent Way to Experience the Baltics countryside"

Kimberly from USA

We booked Discover Latvia Tours for both our transfer from Tallinn to Riga, via Parnu, Along the Seaside, and from Riga to Vilnius, via Rundale Palace and Hill of Crosses. Both times we had Rihards as our driver. He was incredibly professional, courteous, kind, and regaled us with many interesting stories about the Estonian, Latvian, and Lithuanian people, their relationships with each other, with the land, their histories, food, and culture. The stops we had along the way were interesting and he always offered to tailor stops to our needs. We probably would not have seen these places if not for this tour and certainly would not have learned so much about the Baltics! I would definitely recommend Discover Latvia Tours for anyone travelling to the Baltic States.

"A bespoke tour for four, covering Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia"

Reviewed December, 2022
Marie from Perth, Australia

Discover Latvia Tours took our family of four (two adults, two teenagers) on a private, bespoke tour of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia over two days. The itinerary was tailored to suit our needs and interests, with our guide, Rihards, instrumental in the planning stages. He suggested interesting sights off the beaten track, and closer to the travel date communicated regularly with us regarding the finer details.

When spending two full days in a car ‘one-on-one’ with a guide, you want someone like Rihards driving you around. Intelligent, interesting and very pleasant to be around, it was easy to forget we were on a ‘tour’ with Rihards. It felt as though we were being driven around by a friend.

Over the two days, our tailored tour included:
Day one - hotel pick up in Riga, traveling to Salispils Concentration Camp (18km southeast of Riga). The memorial building (an impressive concrete structure) was built by the Soviets in the late 1960s. The informative displays depicting use of the camp during WWII have recently been installed and are very well done.
It was a moving experience, and was particularly beautiful set against the snowy background. Well worth a visit if time allows.

Second stop on day one was the Hill of Crosses in Lithuania. Rihards dropped us off at the main entrance, leaving us to explore the site at our own pace, then waited for us beside a church on the other side.
This place would be awe inspiring at any time of year, but the deep snow made it a truly magical and picturesque experience. (Being Aussies, snow is a huge novelty for us).

On the way back to our hotel we stopped for coffee and cake at a pretty riverside cafe. (Again, very pretty blanketed in white.)

Day two - hotel pick up in Riga to visit a secret Soviet bunker (Padomju Slepenais Bunkurs). It was a fascinating experience. Kept top secret until 2003, it’s as though the Soviets just upped and left the bunker overnight, leaving everything behind - a real time warp! Our bunker guide was a Mexican expat, living in Lithuania, and an expert on the Soviet era - quite a combo! He was passionate about the bunker’s history and shared his knowledge in an energetic and enjoyable way.

Rihards then drove us to the Sigilda bobsled track. This is where Rihards local knowledge and tour organisation really came in handy - the bobsleigh facility is not always open and Rihards kept track of this for us in the days leading up to our visit.
As far as the actual bobsled experience goes, all I can say is Wow Wow Wow!!!! It was a once in a lifetime experience - especially for a sandgroper from Perth, Western Australia!

From there, Rihards drove us to Tallin, Estonia, stopping at another gorgeous cafe along the way before delivering us safely to our next hotel.

Thank you so much Rihards for all your help in organising this very special experience for us, and for your friendly company along the way. We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed every step and kilometer of the journey!

Your expert driving through all that snow for two days while chatting to us about every topic imaginable was very impressive!

We used Discover Latvia Tours to customize our full day sightseeing transfer from Riga to Vilnius, and we can't say enough great things about the wholel experience. From the moment we reached out, Rihards was in constant contact with us and worked to accomodate our special interests and scheduling constraints. Add in comfortable, clean vehicle and knowledgeable driver/guide, plus a completely reasonable price. This is a great company. Thank you so much for the experience!!!

The four excursions with did with Discover Latvia were great. We choose the transfer/excursions from Vilnius to Riga and Riga to Tallinn and also the Kuldiga and Medieval Cesis Town and Sigulda trips from Riga. All four of them were intense and very well worth it. Both Rihards and Marija as tour guids were great and left nothing to be desired.

Kickstarting our travels in the Baltics after a long period of pandemic lockdowns was hard, but doing it with Discover Latvia Tours made it so much easier. My friend and I were looking for a guided transfer from Riga to Vilnius, and Rihards was absolutely helpful right from the beginning. He navigated through different options for us while we figured out our covid tests/border-crossing times etc. and gave us absolute assurance that we were in safe and good hands. Will recommend!

Rihards made this a really pleasant trip for us. He kept up a running commentary on places we saw as well as discussions about Latvia and Estonia. He was such an engaging person. We had a few sightseeing stops along our transfer from Riga to Tallin. My favourite was a boardwalk walk through the bogs. Such a different environment to experience. Very glad we decided to use This private transfer from door to door. Highly recommend.

Ellen from Boston, USA

Rihards was prompt, friendly, informative, and knowledgeable - and especially about Latvia. Easy to make arrangements and follow through. His English is excellent and it was great to hear personal stories about life since the Soviet occupation and current geopolitical issues. We were only two adults, but his car could certainly hold 6-8 and we are so glad we didn't attempt bus routes or trains on our own - (trains in the Baltics lag way behind the rest of Europe). We also saw much more of the countryside, stopping in pre-arranged spots or wherever we decided en route. Highly recommend!

Lucienne from California, USA

We booked a Vilnius to Riga transfer with Rihards and had a fantastic experience. Rihards was very responsive over email and accommodating to tailor the experience to what we wanted to see. He picked us up outside our hotel in a clean, new vehicle and was very professional and fun to talk with. We stopped at both the Hill of Crosses and Rundale Palace. We were a bit skeptical to visit the Hill of Crosses as we weren’t interested from a religious perspective, but it was still totally worth seeing and very unique. Rundale Palace was truly spectacular, and unexpectedly beautiful. If you are traveling between Vilnius and Riga, don’t hesitate to book a transfer with Rihards!

Having read some of the other reviews there isn't very much that I can add! Rihards picked us up promptly from our hotel and took us to the door of our hotel in Vilnius. Along the way he explained a lot about the two countries and some things about their history and current situations. He also told us some entertaining stories about beavers, wild boars and hot air balloons!! We stopped at the Hill of Crosses which is well worth a visit as it's intriguing and fascinating. Rihards also managed to find a stork's nest with 4 young. Although this is a fairly expensive way to travel it is very comfortable with the best chocolates in Lativa also on offer and I would thoroughly recommend this service. We really enjoyed the trip and also enjoyed Rihards company. Very professional! Thank you.

I found out about Discover Latvia through their website and booked this tour via email, and Rihards responded promptly. To say the least, we had a wonderful trip with Rihards. He is an excellent driver and came to pick us up punctually from Riga in a comfortable and new Renault mini-van (even though there was only 3 of us). He was friendly, polite, well-spoken and extremely knowledgeable. He was very informative and shared about the history, culture and current affairs in the Baltic states. He brought us from Riga to Vilnius, and included stops along the way to both Rundale Palace and The Hill of the Crosses. He was patient with all our queries and exceeded our expectations by even helping to bring our luggage into our hotel in Vilnius. If we had an additional day, we would have definitely taken another day tour with him to explore the rest of the Latvia or Estonia. It was an absolute pleasure to have had him as a guide and driver! Thank you Rihards !

We used Discover Latvia for a private transfer between Riga and Tallinn. It was all booked and organised before we left Australia (a very easy process). This was the best decision we made on our trip. Our driver, Rihards, was a very safe and conscientious driver. He was so knowledgeable about Latvia and Estonia. He took us to some great places of interest on our drive between the two capitals. He was a great person to spend 8 hours with. Thanks for a wonderful day! A perfect way to end a perfect stay in Latvia. I definitely recommend ‘Discover Latvia’, the service was outstanding.

We booked a transfer from Vilnius to Riga including a couple of stops in Hills of Crosses & Rundale Palace and another transfer from Riga to Tallinn a couple of days later with stops at Sigulda National Park, bobsleigh tracks, castle, Gutmans cave & Parnu.

All these arranged via emails with Rihards who responded promptly with clarity. Rihards picked us up promptly both times & dropped us off in good time. The tours were well planned, informative & interesting especially the bobsleigh track stop. The van used is new, clean & spacious for 5 adults.

"Discover Latvia is great for transfers, transfer tours and tours!"

Steve from USA

We spent 4 days each in Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius.

Instead of taking straight transfers from Tallinn to Riga and from Riga to Vilnius, we took 7.5 to 8 hour transfer tours between the cities. This included wonderful sightseeing along the way and time for lunch in beautiful and inexpensive restaurants.

We used Discover Latvia for both transfer tours. We upgraded from a car to a van because of our luggage and mostly because of our comfort.

The agreed upon itineraries were great and the places the driver/guide stopped for the two lunches were wonderful.

We also used Discover Latvia for a private tour from Riga to Sigulda and the surrounding area.

For everything, we were very satisfied with Discover Latvia. Nice vehicles, great tour guide, etc.

I had contacted a few tour companies prior to leaving for Europe regarding a transfer from Vilnius to Riga with stops at Hill of Crosses and Rundale Palace. Rihards was very quick in responding and we communicated very quickly via email. He came back with the best price and also suggested we visit Kaunas. That was greatly appreciated.

I paid a deposit via PayPal at the time of booking and the rest on the day of the transfer. He came right on time to our hotel in Vilnius and for the rest of the day, we were very comfortable in his car and visited all 3 places right on schedule.

We had a great day and could not have asked for better service. I would highly recommend Rihards and his services.
