Tours Katrin T is Doing
Lahemaa National Park Day Tour
Join us for a fun day exploring the diverse coastline and nature of Lahemaa National Park.
Katrin has turned one of her favourite hobbies into a job! She used to just organize hikes for friends both in Estonia and abroad (the most memorable hike she put together is definitely a bicycle trip in Iran). We seized the chance of putting something someone loves doing into an everyday thing!
After years of different jobs and projects, Katrin has gone back to school just recently, doing a master's degree in linguistics and Estonian language.
Recently, we began to suspect Katrin is a timelord. Besides keeping busy with tours and school, she also has time left over to spend climbing mountains, travelling, reading up about the Balkan countries and parenting three children.
On her tours, be prepared for an insight into the Estonian peoples’ journey from a tribal society to one of the most digitalized places in the world as well as personal memories from the Soviet Times.

It was nice. Guide was knowledgeable and explained many things. Due to rain and road closing etc we couldn’t see a few place. Overall it was good trip
This tour was well worth it as it allowed us to travel between Tallinn & Riga and learn so much along the way. Our guide was do knowledgeable . Highly recommended.
The overall trip from Tallinn to Riga was excellent. The mini bus was comfortable. Our guide Catherina was very kind, nice, helpful and tried to explain us whatever we saw. You can't do such a trip by yourself or with an ordinary touristic tour. We saw many interesting places. I called it a trip into the green because green is the color of nature in Estonia and Latvia and we saw every tone of green on the road, in national parc and in small towns we visited. Thanh you for this wonderful trip.
It was great service and value for money.
The guide Katharine is very nice and knowledgeable. The trip will allow you to get a real taste of Estonia's nature and know the country better.
The tour was incredibly fun and interesting, with an excellent balance of history, culture and nature. Our guide was friendly, approachable an deeply knowledgeable.
It was my first time joining a small bus tour in this part of Europe. it turned out to be a perfect choice. We need to go to Tallinn from Riga, it provided us with transport combined with tour along the way. I loved the places along the way, a nice lunch, National Park walk and even had time to pick some berries and mushrooms. Katrin our guide had done a fantastic job, couldn't be better. She even had a perfect cup if coffee with her in the small cafe in Medieval old town Cesis in order to escape the rain. Katrin is a very knowledgeable tour guide, I hope to join some other tours by her and Traveller next time.
Katrin tried really hard to accomodate us. She tended to all our needs. I got to see parts of Estonia which I couklld not have seen on my own in a day. Very informative comentry. It is a part of the country that has been neglected and needs more loving. It will not blow your mind, but will give you another perspective of this beautiful country.
This was a lovely, well rounded tour. We are so glad we took it. The guide was lovely and very informative.
My wife Vicky and I really enjoyed our trip from Riga to Tallinn with Traveller Tours. Our guides for the day Katrin and Grigor were very engaging and gave us a great insight into Estonian and Latvian culture both present and past. Our fellow travelers were and pleasure as well.
This was exactly the experience we were hoping for — a chance to see some interesting, beautiful, historic and quirky things in and about Estonia. The guide was great, the itinerary is smart and gave us exposure to a lot during the day. Absolutely worth it!
We had a great time to discover the nature and also culture of Lahemaa region, our guide Katrin is very warm and knowledgeable person. Love this tour and definitely recommend this tour!
Would definitely recommend if you are visiting Estonia.
The guide was really good, knowledgeable and a very nice person in general. I had a really lovely, relaxing day of traveling. This tour comes highly recommended.
our tour guide was terrific: she was charming, full of information, loved her job, and always smiling and proud
I had never been to Estonia and knew very little about its history, so this tour was incredibly interesting. The pick-up spot is very conveniently located near the town square, and the mini-bus that was used was very comfortable despite being completely full! The sea cliffs and the waterfall/park were beautiful. The various stops that highlighted the Soviet history of the country were incredible, as well - especially the old Soviet base that had been abandoned in the early 90s. I'm so glad I found this tour online - I really think it was a unique trip that most people who are visiting Tallinn for a short period wouldn't get to experience. I highly recommend!
The tour is a very good mix of Estonian nature (cliffs) and history (ruins of a monastery) as well as a distant Russian past (Peter the Great) and not so distant (ruins of a Russian air-missile base, an Antonov cargo plane).
I think our guides name was Katrin? She was awesome. The most thoroughly informative tour guide in the world!!
This was a great way of exploring the sights and cultural history of Estonia beyond the city walls. A whirlwind trip through the countryside including old manor houses, waterfall, the bog boardwalk and hidden beaches. Lunch was excellent at the captains village, sitting in the family's dining room full of heritage and atmosphere. Thanks to Katherine our guide who made the day a great success and I left Estonia promising to come back for longer next time!
A day outdoors was the perfect way to end our tip. Our guide was exceptionally well informed and we learned a lot about Estonian history, language & culture as well as the biology of the bog forest. Lunch at the Captain's village was delicious and a wonderful Estonian "at home" experience. Not to be missed!
Excellent day with our tour guide Katerina, mini bus was spacious and it was a small group as previously stated in reviews. K taught us about the history of Estonia and interesting facts and myths of the 2 countries. There was also time for fun on the Estonian Swing, Bob sleigh track and we were lucky to be in Viljandi when the music festival was on. Being a pair of vegetarians due to animal suffering we were not keen on the restaurant due to the stuffed animals etc but take a picnic and eat in the park next to it to avoid this. Fantastic trip, lovely to hear where the other 5 travellers were from and worked etc Well worth the experience.
The tour guide was very professional and friendly. I was so impressed by the bobsleigh track in Sigulda, definitely worth seeing.
Ideale per andare da Tallin a Riga con 5 fermate nei luoghi interessanti il tutto in 12 ore ma e le guide che ti accompagnano in questo tour sono puntuali preparate e molto molto simpatiche. brave!!!! grazie a loro abbiamo potuto capire qualcosa in più di questi paesi!!! la nostra guida era KATRIN bravissima.
Gita molto carina, si parte alle 10 quindi si può raggiungere con calma il punto ritrovo, il viaggio sul piccolo bus è carino, bella la cascata e stupenda la passeggiata nel parco in mezzo alla pineta! Molto particolare il pranzo dentro il museo del mare a base di piatti tipici (anche se non compreso nel prezzo). Nel pomeriggio si visita la parte costiera del parco. Guida molto gentile e carina, bell’atmosfera. Vale la pena spendere così una giornata
The guide (Katrin) was very well informed about Histroy, places, folklore, etc. of the places we've been. We strongly suggest to do this tour, 'cause it's for sure the BEST WAY to travel form Tallinn to Riga, learning new things & seeing interessting places. And it's cheap!!
First and foremost, our guide/driver was a dreadful driver. She wasn't confident at all, frequently over-revving the engine and on two occasions, stalling. Her driving was erratic and I didn't feel safe in the vehicle. Secondly, she was not a good public speaker - we had several points in the tour where she would talk to the group about the landmark we were visiting. She didn't come across confident and didn't seem like she knew all that much about the places. Looking round the faces of the group while she was talking, it was evident that other people felt the same. She also at one point said that "the Nazi's didn't seem that bad" and made some fairly disparaging remarks about Russia/Russian people. Thirdly, the division of time at the stops was poor - it was barely worth stopping in the national park to walk a short distance and then go back to the van, and in Cesis, we had only 30 minutes free time - though not a large place, I would have liked to have a bit more time to explore. When we arrived, the castle was already closed, but had we arrived when it was open, we wouldn't have had time to see it anyway. Finally, the restaurant at which the tour stopped had no vegan options - both my partner and I are vegan and this was not mentioned beforehand. We've taken several similar trips in other countries and with other providers - usually mealtimes are factored into the free time at one of the stops, allowing people a choice of restaurants etc to suit dietary requirements. All in all, I don't think the tour represented good value for money, I certainly wouldn't recommend it and I wish that we'd taken the train or a regular coach instead.
