Testimonials

  • I was part of Ann Scolnick's tour from Tallin to Vilnius.  I was extremely pleased and satisfied with our tour. The organization, and hotels were excellent.  Our meals outside of the hotels were better than the ones provided in the hotels.  The best part of our tour was our guide Vaida!  She was exceptional, in fact better than any guide I have had during any of my extensive travels.  I will recommend your company to my friends, and hope they also will be lucky enough to have such a wonderful guide.

  • The cycling trip has been the highlight of the year my life :)  for me. It was 10/10 all the way. I wouldn't change a thing and have told my friends they should go.
    Thank you so much for an incredible experience. I knew little about your part of the world . . . and now I only want to know more. The Curonian Spit is beautiful. It's all beautiful.
    Plus, with the help of Redas and Igor I was able to make a detour and find the house my uncle built where my mom lived in the Kaliningrad Oblast until 1945.
    Kudos to each of you for making me feel welcome and for anticipating and meeting my interests and needs. Seriously, you guys are amazing!!

  • My wife and I loved the Baltic self-guided tour of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.  The route selected meant each day had a good piece of riding on quiet roads or bike paths through interesting countryside plus stops in all of the major cities and towns.  Our small group got on very well together.

  • Yes we had a good trip. Saw some nice nature and pleasant villages. The hotels were also good. And the bikes. The driver drove us fast and safe from / to Riga. And we were lucky with the weather. Just a few drops of rain the last day. Mostly sunny. It rained a lot more in Sweden during that week. Best regards,
    Hans Brandtberg, Sweden, 2013 (tour SG1, along the Lithuanian Seaside)
  • Hi Saulius, We had a great time on our trip, and would recommend you to anyone. If you ever figure out how to do a Helsinki - Tallinn via St Petersburg ride, we'd be in!"

  • Our cycling-group has spent 10 days in Lithuania and explored your country on Baltic Bike Travel route “Vilnius-Curonian Spit-Klaipeda" – we all want to thank you again for your efforts and great assistance in planning and organizing our individual intentions to realize our this years cycling idea.
    Ludwig Enser, Germany, 2012 (tour SG2, Lithuania – from the capital to the Seaside)
  • Now we are back from a most interesting and well-organized "Baltic Capital City" guided bicycle tour. We have cycled in France, Italy, Scotland, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Greece, Germany, the Czech Republic and Ireland in all kinds of landscapes ... so we have some guided cycle tours to compare with. My husband and I are so very satisfied with the whole tour. It was just what we expected except for some extra positive factors...
    Anita Bostrom-Baversten, Sweden, 2011 (tour G1)
  • We have arrived home after the Baltic Bike trip with Ramos from Vilnius to Talinn. It was fantastic, absolutely wonderful. We've done bike trips in Europe and the US with other groups and this trip was the very best. Of course we loved the country side and the weather was an unexpected bonus.
    But the real advantage of this ride was Ramos. He is a leader with knowledge beyond any tour guide.....he offered us information on the history, the culture, the geography, the religion, the botany....everything.....the best teacher/guide possible. But, beyond that, his personality is ideal for this....he understood group dynamics and the group really connected because he drew us together; building bridges between the German speakers and the English speakers, providing humor, music, etc. And the biking was perfect....the distances worked well, the scenery and places he chose to stop were ideal.
    You've done a really good job with the pace of the trip...the 2 days in Klaipedia, 3 in Riga, 2 on the island. Good hotel, simple logistics (for the guests anyway) And, the stops were at interesting places. Albinis was a really good driver and such a friendly, helpful person to have with us. Due to an old injury, I spent one afternoon on the bus. Albinis was informative and made me feel less badly about missing the biking....a really caring man and very careful with the bikes.

  • Wishing to see a part of the world we knew little about, we 6 friends took a chance on BalticBike and were not disappointed. We had great support on our custom trip from Vilnius to Tallinn, including the support we had for an unexpected trip to the emergency room in Lithuania.  The contrast of the capital cities and the rural national parks was visually impressive.  We would not hesitate to recommend BalticBikes, professionally managed from start to finish.
