This was an AMAZING trip. Our guide, Laura was entertaining, fun & very knowledgeable. She was a good sport and flexible to accommodate the needs of our group. We so enjoyed our time with her. Each stop was something unique and different - well off the beaten path. We highly recommend this trip to anyone traveling between Riga & Tallinn.

Description

Our entertaining Riga to Tallinn day trip takes you through the picturesque towns of Sigulda, Cēsis, Valga, and Viljandi in a small group of up to 8 people. We’ll show you places you’d never find on your own and help you discover two countries in one day.

You’ll learn about Latvian and Estonian history while exploring these small towns, as well as medieval castle ruins, quirky local sights, and beautiful countryside.

First, we’ll stop in Sigulda to climb the only bobsleigh track in the Baltics for great views of the area. Next, we’ll visit the romantic Old Town of Cēsis and the beautiful castle ruins at the heart of it.

We’ll then stop at the Gauja National Park, where you can hike along the picturesque Sietiņiezis sandstone cliffs.

Afterwards, we’ll learn about the history of Latvia and Estonia in Valga, a town on the Latvian-Estonian border.

We’ll also stop for lunch at a local restaurant in Valga. Kindly let our guides know if you have any special dietary requirements that should be taken in account. The location of the lunch is subject to availability, and the meal is not included in the price of the tour.

Before we reach Tallinn, we’ll stop in Viljandi, one of the loveliest towns in Estonia, to roam its castle hills and discover how the crusader castle came to be ruined.

Great way to travel and see these countries
The tour offered an awesome way to not only travel between these cities but see a lot along the way with a great and knowledgeable guide. I was on the 24th June tour and it was smooth and informative with the national park in Latvia being the highlight.
Amazing experience!
I really wish there were more tours like this around europe. Easy to get from city to city and with a full expertise of someone local. Lovely visit to the national park and also great food.
Giving it 5 stars because we can’t give it 10!

Excellent!
Superb
Exceeded every expectation. Great stories and cultural insights. Great knowledge of history. Best of all was her sense of humor. Thank you for a great experience.
Über-ultra-super-mega-trip!!
I loved the trip!! The stops were really key spots to visit and the tour guide was really nice, friendly, funny and provided us with interesting facts. A tour that one must do to better travel between the Baltics =)
Excellent tour! Excellent guide!
Our guide, Andres, was amazing! He explained everything very well and answered all of our questions! We visited the Jägala waterfalls, the viru bog, the abandoned Hara submarine base, the kasmu maritime museum, a fishing village and the Sagadi manor. We also had a very tasty lunch at the kasmu village (not included in the price but totally worth it). Everything was great! I definitely suggest this tour to every body!
Tallinn is more than Old Town
This tour was the exact reason why I came back to Tallinn, after a summer trip to explore the city itself.
For 55 euro, this tour is a bargain. I am speaking for myself of course.

Our guide was excellent, fluent in English and very up to date with all our questions. Getting out of Tallinn to see what other beauty Talinn has to offer is a must. You will see a waterfall, a gorgeous bog (a type of swap), abandoned Russian industry and the cutest museum you will ever see. At that particular museum we were served a delicious meal, prepared by a true viking. :)

Highly recommended!
