Tours Katrin T is Doing
Riga–Tallinn Sightseeing Tour Bus
Explore the very best of North-Latvian & South-Estonian countryside on your way to Tallinn.
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.

I travelled from Tallinn to Riga with this sightseeing bus. It was very good with us being just four people. The guide was amazing, she had so much knowledge and was presenting everything in an interesting way. She read the group very well and gave us options along the way. She even showed us a hidden statue of Lenin lying on the ground and took us blueberry picking in the forest.
We had a very interesting tour. Katrin, our guide was very good in giving a short and also personnel review of history of Estonia and Latvia, that gave me a better understanding of these two countries. All the stops we made were interesting. Our guide was very considerate to our small group of 7 passengers. She stopped for instance to allow me to post to cards shortly before we crossed the border. She is also a good driver and I can only recommend the tour.
In a small group of 7 we traveled from Riga to Tallinn, with a dedicated and inspiring guide, with great storytelling and knowledge. We heard about society, nature and personal experiences. Very valuable
This trip was so worth it, i mean the trip was so nice and all the places we visited were just amazing, our tour guide was really nice and she was pretty good explaining every detail of the trip. I really enjoyed it and i would recommend it a lot.
Rather than taking the direct bus from Riga to Tallinn, this is the best way to explore both countries outside the city centre. Our guide, Katrin is very friendly and knowledgable in explaining the histories of both countries and also all the attractions that we visited. She is also a very safe driver and prepared some umbrellas in case it is raining. I don't feel rushed and she is very flexible with time. On top of that, she has helped us above and beyond when my mom left her bagpack in one of the attraction sites. She makes sure that the bagpack is delivered to us the next day! We were trully appreciative of her efforts in helping us. She has truly displayed an excellent representation of Estonian who is kind hearted! The other guide, Andres who voluntereed to get the bagpack and deliver it to us is truly a star! We will remember Estonia with sweet memories not only because of the beautiful attractions that the country has but also the kind hearted people!
Taking the Sightseeing Tour gives you great possibility to learn about the Baltic history, tasting local food and explore the wildlife. Including to eat wild berries, writing Names in Sand-Stone and seeing historical landmarks with a very passionate guide. 5-Star experience
We really enjoyed this tour from Tallinn to Riga. There were 7 of us in the van, and our guide, Katrin, was excellent. The trip was very interesting, informative and all done in a relaxed atmosphere. We usually do things on our own, since we hate “tour buses” but this was completely different and I would highly recommend it. We would not have captured the depth of the historical and social background of the places we visited if we had done it on our own. It was great to hear a local person’s perspective about the history and culture of each area, and it was also eye-opening to hear first-hand experiences of Katrin’s family.
Very nice tour with Katharina. She gave us a lot of informations and it was very pleasant to discuss with her. A tour that gives a good overview of the national park
It was a very interesting day knowing the nature, cliffs, forests, landscape and history of Estonia and having a great time with our excellent guide Katrin T
Ottima soluzione per raggiungere Riga, tappe interessanti. Ottima soluzione di ristoro. Guida attenta e disponibile!! E' la prima volta che con la famiglia ci appoggiamo ad un tour e siamo molto soddisfatti, lo consigliamo!
I enjoyed hearing our guide, Katrin, share those stories from her heart. She's very willing to help and also a very gentle driver! I am happy to be part of this group and visit spots that I wouldn't be able to reach easily by public transportation.
A small group and it gelled so well. People from Germany(3), Malta(2) and Australia(3) and guided throughout the day by an excellent and expert guide who not only knew her stuff but described everything with such enthusiasm. Clearly a devoted patriot of her beloved Estonia. Oh yes, an excellent driver as well. The tour started(10 am)and finished(7 pm) in Old Town and there many highlights not least being the walk through the peat bog areas of the Laheema National Park and the visit to the traditional fishing village. Highly recommended!
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.
