Tour: #177487, Vilnius to Riga Via Hill of Crosses, Bauska castle and Bauska farm museum, Riga, Latvia    
Date: Sep 28/18

Edgars was an excellent driver. We encountered quite a bit of rain off and on. He recommended many things to see in Riga. He helped us into our apartment and carried most of the luggage. He took us to a delicious restaurant for lunch and we were able to ask him some of his history under the Russian occupation. He is a friendly guy with a pleasant personality. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Latvia and knows Riga very well. We would highly recommend Edgars as your tour guide.

Tour: #177487, Riga to Vilnius (or Kaunas) Via Rundale Palace and Hill of Crosses, Riga, Latvia    
Date: Jun 9/17

Edgars drove us from Vilnius to Riga, stopping along the way to show us the Hill of Crosses and Rundale Palace. He was punctual, knowledgeable about both Lithuania and Latvia, energetic, and a careful driver. Our only issue with him was our inability to understand his speech at times. You have to listen to him carefully. But he carried out his duties exactly as we had hoped and expected.

Edgar was punctual and polite. He arrived at 9 AM to pick us up and drive us from Riga to Vilnius. His communication prior to picking us up was excellent. However, once we met Edgar, he spoke very little to us. It was difficult to understand his English. At the Rundale Palace, he walked us into the palace and took us to the ticket office, but stated everything was written in english and that he would not accompany us. At hill of crosses, he pointed us in the direction, but did not accompany us.

Edgars was a wonderful companion for my round trip tour from Riga to Vilnius via Rundale Palace and the hill of Crosses. He was punctual, patient with me and my endless questions, sharing, proud of his culture, and very passionate about his country. Although he is not a licensed tour guide, he was very knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. I highly recommend him and will use his services for my future trips to the Baltic region.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tarifa for your kind words. I will do my best to improve my service. Edgars

We had Edgars take us from Riga to Vilnius, via Rundale Palace and the Hill of Crosses. Edgars picked us up right on time at the lobby of our hotel. An excellent driver, he took us to Rundale and gave us plenty of time to explore. Then on to the Hill of Crosses, another great stop. Dropped us right at our hotel in Vilnius. A perfect day, great drive, and exceptional way to go from Riga to Vilnius. You will be very pleased to put yourself in Edgars' hands!
