Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor

"Excellent way to travel!"

This was a brilliant, comfortable way to get between Riga and Tallinn, but more than that it allows you to experience more than just those city centres. Our guide was so knowledgeable and never rushed any part of the tour (in fact all the timing was perfect). The minivan was very spacious (which I had worried about as I'm tall and leg room is always an issue - but not this time!) and the restaurant and meal halfway was also lovely. I would highly recommend. Unfortunately we had bad weather for half the day but Sten carried on regardless and we got the best experience possible. Thanks TravellerTours.

"Good way to explore Estonia! Excellent Guide!"

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!

"Good tour"

The vehicle was very comfortable for our group of 5. It was a very pleasant day, seeing more of Latvia and Estonia. However, our guide bluffed a lot of the info, was totally disengaged with us and had no consideration for anybodies speed or needs

"Best way to travel from Riga to Tallinn"

We opted for a private tour as it was more flexible. In particular, we had visited Sigulda for a full day (by train from Riga - recommended) so we asked to skip Sigulda and spend more time at Cesis Castle (also recommended.) Note - Elina said that even on a full tour, the guide can do that if everyone agrees. Elina was full of information and had excellent conversational English. Even if you are on the small group tour (about eight people, max nine), travelling between Riga and Tallinn this way allows you to see a lot more of the country outside the capital cities.

"Fantastic day tour"

I wish there were more tours like this, that take you from one beautiful place to another and show you so much on the way! Our guide Gregor was brilliant, he had an answer to every question and have lots of insights into Estonian culture. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see behind the mask of the capitals and see real Latvia and Estonia..

"Wonderful Expjrience"
