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.

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.

The guide was a very good storyteller and driver. She was so nice and had a lot of humor. Very interesting places we visited.

Kind regards
Jane and Karsten
Our tour guide Kamile is patient, meticulous, caring, and knowledgeable. Thumbs up!
Our guide between Riga and Tallinn was Kurt. We were 7 people (Irish, Finnish, British, Swedish, Spanish and American). A great bunch of well-travelled people who were looking for adventure in the Baltics. Kurt did a great job showing us the sights along with the background history of each. We particularly enjoyed the Bobsled stop. Some Russians were actually there practicing. I would highly recommend this trip!
Great tour with very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Great personality. Very fortunate to have Andres as a guide.
Fun and interesting

Fantastic tour and highly recommended!
Interesting sights and commentary
Had a great time with Catherine. Very knowledgeable. She went the extra mile to tell and show us what’s interesting.
There is no better way to get from Riga to Vilnius. The sites along the way are worth far more than the cost of the transportation. Thanks for this great idea and for fulfilling it in a very professional manner.
Thanks for the great tour!
There’s no better way to travel between Riga and Vilnius than to spend a day with eight other travelers and the guide/driver. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and wouldn’t have wished for it to be different. Tim
Great way to transfer cities!
You get a transfer and get a knowledgeable local and some sightseeing along the way. Can't beat it!
