IMO, it's best to play vanilla versions of both games before heading to the mods. Experience it the way it was released, then mod it to get a different experience (and you'll then know exactly how you'd like to tweak the game(s) to suit your tastes).
Darilon: Is it recommended to use TuTu or BGT over vanilla? I am not that far in yet so restarting is still an option. I started on vanilla mainly to play instantly but don't mind putting in some effort to get it going. I also bought Baldurs Gate 2 in the sale and have it installed so BGT is an option.
