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.

Great e perience
Having fun from Riga to Tallinn
Our sightseeing trip to Tallinn from Riga was truly amazing! We had a truly great time from beginning to end. Our guide Jon (sp) was very knowledgeable and super friendly and the sites that we stopped by were all interesting and fun; sites that we perhaps wouldn't have known of had we decided to rent a car and drive ourselves to Tallinn.

We highly recommend this bus tour and thank our guide for being such a good sport and fun to be around. We wish him all the best in his future studies. Thank you!

A great trip
We did the bus tour Riga-Tallin. Laura was our guide/driver.
A great experience: we just needed to travel one-way from Riga to Tallin and we decided to book the tour instead of a conventional bus or train ticket.
We spent a nice and funny day. The tour is well organized, no rush and you can merge a transfer trip with a visit of some of the best Latvian and Estonian location.
A special thanks to Laura (she is really one of the most energetics and positive person I have ever met) who was able to entertain us during the whole trip. Totally recommended and a must-go trip if you have to travel through Baltic capitals
Great way to travel from Riga to Tallinn
Our driver guide, Anna, was awesome, her energy and enthusiasm got you excited.
The entire tour was well designed with good pace without rushing, including time for restrooms and lunch/coffee break.
The van is comfortable with air conditioner, sits maximum of 8.
A Fantastic Experience. Highly Recommended!
If you are looking to get from one city to another, the sightseeing tour bus is the perfect choice! The tour from Riga to Tallinn was one of our trip's main highlights and we are thrilled that we chose this unique travel option.

The bus ride was comfortable, the stops were beautiful and definitely not the places we will think to get to on our own, and the explanations were just right (informative, entertaining and enriching).

A special THANK YOU to our exceptional tour guide Laura for giving us an unforgettable experience!

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!
