Tours Alina (LT) is Doing
Riga–Tallinn Sightseeing Tour Bus
Explore the very best of North-Latvian & South-Estonian countryside on your way to Tallinn.
Alina loves challenging herself and finding new ways to improve the lives of others around her.
After finishing her studies of International Relations and Political Science she started working in the press office of the Israeli Parliament. Over time, Alina realised the game of winning hearts and minds is more about how things look than about how they are and she did not appreciate this. Thus, Alina quit to find new ways to make the world a little bit better piece by piece somewhere else. She also discovered her passion for Middle Eastern cooking while working in Jerusalem and can make a mad-good falafel.
Alina dreams of travelling the world and she is not kidding about this, either. She wants to see everything in this wonderful place. When Alina is not doing tours, she is organizing educational projects for people of all ages, enjoying the day with family and friends or looking for a new adventure.
Due to her background, Alina is great at explaining new and strange things by drawing connections and comparisons from around the world. If there is something you don’t understand about life in the Baltics, she will make sure you get it by the end of the day.

Alina, our driver and guide, was very cheerful and active. She had lots of stories and jokes to tell. She drove carefully. The van was spacious and had lots of space for luggage. A bottle of drinking water was provided. The whole tour took 12 hours. I find it too long. One of the reasons was Alina was not very strict with time. Some tourists spent their time as they wanted.
Alina really made this tour. She was insightful, energetic, knowledgeable and so willing to make sure we had a fabulous time. I wouldn’t have visited these parts of Latvia and Lithuania if I hadn’t done this tour. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to travel between the two countries and not sit on a train or bus the whole time. Sensational!
As with most people, I opted to take this tour to see a bit of the countryside of Latvia / Lithuania rather than take the direct bus route. Overall, the tour was great - well paced (we left and arrived on time, and the guide made sure we had ample opportunity to see sites), great information at each stop, and plenty of time to explore independently after the initial introduction to the site. Really enjoyed it!
I was so happy to discover this tour offering. Being able to not only transfer efficiently between Riga and Vilnius, but at the same time make 5 stops at tourist highlights I had wanted to visit anyway, was really great! This is especially true because some places (like Hill of Crosses) are not that easy to get to by public transportation. In general visiting all these places would have taken me at least two days, so this was really an efficient and stress-free way to travel. Our guide was excellent -- engaging, open, full of information not only on the sites but also on life and current events in the Baltics overall. The small group design of the tour as well as the super reasonable price were awesome as well. This is a highly recommended tour and company. (In fact, I wanted to do some of their other tours organized in Lithuania, but unfortunately at this time of year there is limited availability because of relatively few tourists). I'll definitely consider the Talinn-Riga and other tours with Traveller Tours the next time I am in the region!!!!
Omg. So much to say!! Alina?? Or Alona? A lithuanian chick was our tour guide. Totally hilarious and friendly!!! I kept getting lost on private walks but she was my hero!!!
We spent such a productive day with our lovely guide. She has a full of knowledge on Lithuanian history. Our tour was a private type, and she guided perfectly and professionally our request. We will definitely look into her suggestions she made during the tour.
Perfect way to travel from Riga to Vilnius with multiple stops in between to go to places in the middle of no where / without easy access with public transport. Our guide Alina was super fun and informative about everything.
Very interesting experience with a sympathic guide, I recommand !
The tour is quite intense (12 hours - most of the objectives are not exactly on the main road) and it’s fully worth doing it. Alina is a great guide, who provided lots of interesting facts and useful tips (she also drives very safely). We enjoyed esp. the Trakai area where we returned for a full day experience.
Definitely worth taking the tour! AlIna took us through the otherwise difficult to reach towns and was very informative!!
Gut organisiert und Auswahl an Besuchspunkten außerhalb der Stoßzeiten. Hoch motivierte und kundige Reiseleiterin
The best way to travel through the Baltics and see more than only the capitals. Alina was a great guide! She told a lot of information and was good fun to spend the day with. In hindsight, we should have done the Tallinn-Riga your as well...
We had a great time on our tour. Alina was an amazing guide. So many beautiful and thought provoking places to visit. We had the right mix of explanation and free time.
It was great. Totally recommend it!
Great tour. Great guide. Pleasant group of travelers
The tour was a combination of education, hilarity, and fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great time.
Wonderful trip. Wonderfoul group. Amazing tour guide! Thank you for the experience and all the information shared during those 12 hours :)
Alina was a very pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful and fun guide. She exceeded my expectations. I was a bit hesitant to take small group tours such as these but it was a great decision in the end. The travel was very smooth, not rushed, well-explained and well organized. Special thanks to Alina who really showed passion about about her job; meeting other people, showing her lovely country Lithuania, and telling wonderful stories that made the places much more alive and meaningful. The van was a comfortable vehicle and those in the group were nice and fun too. I enjoyed the trip much. I highly recommend this travel company and their lovely guide. It was a great experience at a very affordable price.
We had a very enjoyable day despite having a long drive! The stops break up the journey and Alina was an excellent guide, friendly and informative and had time to answer all of our questions. Alina even drove us to our airbnb when we arrived in Riga! All of the stops were great, especially Trakai which was beautiful. Would definitely use one of those tour buses again!
Alina was waiting with the bus even though we were early, a good sign we thought. The tour was well organised and we enjoyed the visits to different sites. Alina added to our enjoyment and understanding by recounting her family’s Lithuanian and Jewish history. Thoroughly recommended.
