Fantastic host! Great sights. Can not recommend enough. Ps we hope this is the right tour guide ps soz we don’t remember your name but you were brilliant none the less THANKS!
"Great way to get to Tallin"
Probably one of the best ways to get to Tallinn from Riga.
"Great travel "
The tour was fun and very interesting as we discovered a bit more about Latvia and Estonia history. It was great to have a small walk on the Gauja park and very funny to try the Estonian swing. The minibus (8 people maximum) is a perfect size if you are not that much into "tour bus" and allows you to discuss with the other travellers and the guide. The guide was very friendly, informative and full of tips to make the most of Estonia. Liine was a very safe and relaxed driver. Overall a very enjoyable trip.
"Wonderful way to travel from Riga to Tallinn"
If you want to get from Riga to Tallinn and see the sights along the way, then this is the way to travel. Laura was our driver and guide and entertained us all the way with her knowledge (her mother is a history teacher) and her talent (she sang a song for us at the beautiful medieval castle at Viljandi). It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and one of the highlights of our trip around the Baltic countries.
"Travel with Local"
It’s great experience that you’ll travel with a local guide. It’s perfect if you have any question especially history. It will not be just a transportation but a guided tour. Highly recommended!! :D
"Really good day!"
It was a very good day and tour with Mike, lots of fun and sightseeing with him. Thanks!
"Convenient way of doing sightseeing "
It was an enjoyable trip plus the meal offered by a Tallinn’s hotel through the driver cum guide was definitely worth trying.
"An adventure across the countryside."
I had a wonderful adventure across the countryside with Mikelis and fellow travelers. We were provided to an inside look to the off the beaten path of what the countries had to offer. I would defiantly recommend this program for anyone wanting to get out of just the capital cities of the Baltic States and to see as much as possible as you travel from one country to the next.
"Great guide! "
Loads of fun and interesting stops :)
"Lovely tour guide however the bus is a bit too small"
Enjoyed the tour a little but I don’t think it’s something for me. It’s a long time on the small bus with other people sitting so closely to you. It’s more of a large car than a bus. I did really enjoy seeing the towns and the National Park and the guide was a lovely guy who knew a lot about the Estonia and Latvia. My partner enjoyed this tour more than I did. I don’t think it’s for everyone but you definitely won’t regret it.
That was great way to get from Riga to Tallinn & Mike is a very friendly tour guide
"Best Tour guide ever! "
There would not have been a better way to go to Tallinn from Riga. Marju was exceptional and really made the trip very pleasant. The stops were well planned with adequate time to go around. The best part was the associated information that Marju conveyed effortlessly keeping the tour quite interesting! The lunch was at an amazing place with great local cuisine. Marju was able to get us there despite the place not being fully available as it was the day after christmas. The van was comfortable and driving was good. She also provided great pointers on what to do and try in Tallinn which really helped my stay in Tallinn. Aitah Marju!
THE TRIP IS AMAZING, EVEN WITH NEGATIVE TEMPERATURES!!
Had an amazing time on this tour. Turned a wasted travel day into a highlight of our trip. Our tour guide Mic was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. Would highly recommend this for anyone heading to or from Tallinn.
"Very patient and experience guide"
We are a group of 8, moving slowly on the wet and slippery floor. Andres is very patience with us. He brought us to the forest and historical castle. He ensure we reach our apartment in Helsinki safely. He is a safe driver and good guide.
"A fun-filled way to get from Riga to Tallinn!"
We recently took the Riga-Tallinn Sightseeing tour bus and it was one of the best experiences ever! We took a private tour as there was no public tour that day. Our guide, Mike picked us up from our hotel in Riga and led us for an amazing day trip. Our first stop was at the Bobsleigh track - it provided wonderful views over the area and was a fun trek to see an actual working ice track! Next, we visited the quaint old town of Cesis to pick up soveniors and grab a cup of coffee, Following that, the trek through the Gauja national park was definitely the highlight of the day - a chance to really connect with nature in a snowy walk. We then stopped for lunch near a Beer Factory, before heading to our last stop of the day, Viljandi to see the ruins of the fort. Finally, we were dropped off at our hotel in Tallinn with a day full of fond memories! Overall, a fun trip and definitely recommended to do!
"Best Way to Travel from Riga to Tallinn"
Taking the small group tour between Riga and Tallinn was a great decision I made. The tour was fantastic and I got to see places in Latvia and Estonia that I would have not seen myself. Mike was an amazing guide, very thoughtful, kind and funny. He answered all the questions from the travelers so kindly and patiently and made sure everyone was going at their own pace. Glad I saw the picturesque small towns and spent some time outdoors in the Gauja national park. This trip comes highly recommended to anyone not wanting to do the drive themselves and wanting to see some beautiful places outside the cities of Tallinn and Riga.
Excellent way to travel to Tallin, particularly by the explanations and simpaty of our guide!
"Wonderful way to see the Latvian and Estonian country side"
The guide was outstanding and very engaging and personable. Refrained from using private cell phone during the tour. Made an effort to show us the sites we were most interested I seeing.
"Much more to these countries than their capital cities!!!"
I had previously taken the tour from Vilnius to Riga, because I think it’s a good opportunity to see some of these beautiful countries outside of their capital cities. This tour was also very interesting and informative. Our guide was friendly and welcoming, he gave a great introduction to his country.
"The Perfect way to see these 2 countries"
Travelling from Riga to Tallinn, we wanted to take in as much of the country side as we could. Alternative travel methods such as direct bus or plane didn’t really appeal as you missed out on seeing the country first hand. This tour was great! 12 hours travel but it took us to off the beaten track sights. We visited castles and towns; forests and bobsled tracks; all with the amazing help and knowledge of our tour guide. Great experience and highly recommended
We had an absolutely amazing experience travelling from Riga to Tallinn. Our guide Anna was lovely and very knowledgable of the area as well. Highly recommend this tour!
Eight travelers, 12 hours. Too long. Cut it to. 9-10 hours.
"Great trip from Riga to Tallinn!"
Good to have some stop-overs during the long hours of usual driving route. Local guides tell local stories along the way. The group size is just right.
"Completely recommended to anyone interested on local culture and history."
Absolutely satisfied with the tour. Make you feel like traveling in family. Safe driver. Five Stars!!!
"The best way to get from Riga to Tallinn"
It was really good experience. The trip was well organized, we visited several beatiful places, small picturesque towns, walked in pineapple forest, learnt interesting things about Latvia and Estonia history. Despite the long day, it was "light" and "live" trip, thanks to our guide Line, very nice person with good sense of humour. The lunch in the authentic restaurant was super delicious. We really enjoyed the trip, would recommend this option to everyone.
"Informative personalised trip with delightful singing guide Mikelis. "
Great way to get a feel for rural parts of Latvia and Estonia, with stops at points of interest.
"A great day and a great way to travel "
My son and I joined the rest of the group travelling from Riga to Tallin. Our guide was Mikelis. He entertained us very well throughout the day with his local knowledge and even threw in a couple of folk songs. It was a great experience, visiting some really interesting places we would never of considered normally visiting. I would throughly recommend the trip to anyone wanting to travel between the 2 cities.
"Thoroughly enjoyed it."
Our guide new Marju knew the hidden places, explained various things on the way.
"Un tuffo nella storia e nella tradizione dei paesi baltici "
Abbiamo deciso di prenotare il tour da Riga a Tallinn con questo Tour Bus ed è stata un'esperienza fantastica! Abbiamo percorso strade che mai avremmo fatto e visitato paesi all'interno che non avremmo mai visto. La nostra guida era Mike, un ragazzo lettone giovane e molto simpatico. Ve lo consigliamo!
"Riga-Tallinn with Traveller"
We had a wonderful day with Laura T of Traveller. We took the tour from Riga to Tallinn and visited the beautiful cities in between. Laura was very helpful with our six month old. She was very knowledgeable and shared trivia facts about the places we visited. She even picked fresh berries for us. She is a bright girl and we wish her well. We really had a memorable time with her and would cherish it forever.
"Riga to Tallinn "
Our guide was delightful! We would have been fine with more music in the van for the long ride. The sights are beautiful and it was nice to get out and walk around.
"Great tour !"
Very interesting tour with a nice guide. I recommend !
"Sightseeing with pizazz!"
The perfect way to get from Riga to Tallinn. Laura, from Vilnius, was an energetic and informative guide, keeping it fun at the same time. She seemed to be having a good time and that made us have a good time as well.
It’s great to combine sightseeing with getting me from Riga to Tallinn
We had a fantastic time from Riga to Tallinn having asp done the Villnius to Riga tour. Riga to Tallinn was a bit more relaxed, loved the forest cliffs! Great restaurant pick in a hunting lodge hotel. I’d highly recommend these one-way tours! Marju recommended five places in Tallinn - we made it to four. Thanks for the awesome Tips!!!
"Anna is the best guide turistic!!"
She is nice and very good!!
"A wonderful way to go from Riga to Tallinn"
We were planning a trip that would include Riga and Tallinn, and I have run into your ad proposing to get from Riga to Tallinn by a bus tour. We decided to try it, but had some doubts. In particular, we were not sure we would survive 12 hours on a bus. In the end we enjoyed the trip very much. Triin the guide/driver was very professional, very knowledgeable and with a good sense of humor. We visited beautiful Latvian and Estonian countryside, which we would never seen otherwise, and the time passed very fast.
"Interesting way to go to Tallinn from Riga"
It was a good change to go to Tallinn from Riga visiting interesting places in Latvia and Estonia. The lunch was great in a lovely place and our guide was very nice. The only dissapointing thing was the Military Museum because our guide spent too much time there and making political matters.
"Enjoyable way to travel from Riga to Tallinn"
I enjoyed this tour from Riga to Tallinn. The only negative was the weather, which is obviously beyond your control (it rained at times during the day). The stops were interesting, and I enjoyed talking to Karolis (the guide) and the other travellers. Karolis did a great job as guide, with his knowledge of the sites, and was also a careful driver.
"Nice way to hit the road"
We really did enjoy that trip, our guide was lovely and as we were seating next to him we talked a lot about the countries and the culture. We loved the walk in the national park and the two cities of Cesis and Viljandi, we could have stayed there longer. The military museum was less interesting for us.
"Good experience and wonderful places!"
A nice option to reach Tallinn from Riga seeing beautiful places around Latvia and Estonia. Curious stories and a adventurous travel with people of different countries. Thank you!
"One Extraordinary day"
We spent a brilliant, fantastic day with Mike on our tour from Riga to Tallin, thank you Mike!! I recommend this trip for all the people who wants to travel this way: Riga to Tallin or back, enjoying the countryside and getting historically true/ real /interesting /rich information. We would happily repeat and repeat....
"Great tour guide "
My partner and I were sick of flying between cities on our trip to the Baltics so we decided to try this tour. I was worried I'd be stuck in a boring car all day wishing I had flown but I was pleasantly surprised :) The tour is a full day but the distance between stops is really well thought out and you don't feel like you have ever been stuck in the car too long. All stops were interesting and it was nice to see some of the countryside. There was a toilet at every stop and the longest time spent in the car was 2 hours at the end coming into Tallin. Our guide Katlin was awesome! A really lovely young lady who had an amazing knowledge of the history of the area, every question we asked her she was more than happy to answer honestly and she really knew her stuff. She gave great recommendations on places to eat in Tallinn and was super laid back. While the rest of the group slept in the back of the van she chatted with us up the front and made the trip very enjoyable. I can highly recommended her and the trip from Riga to Tallin. Thanks Katlin
"The perfect way to travel! "
Had a lovely transport and sightseeing tour with Kristel from Riga and to Tallinn. She was very knowledgeable, kind and solution oriented, when we were once again struck by the on-and-off showers from above. We saw some great attractions, learned a lot about Estonia and Latvia, and the almost 12 hours just flew by. Great way to get from Tallin to Riga while seeing something along the way - we especially loved travelling on the small roads and watching the fields and countryside.
"Fantastic city tour from Riga to Tallinn! :)"
We travelled from Vilnius to Riga. We think that this tour was the best choice during our baltic trip! Laura (our guide) was very kind and friendly and gave a lot of information about the visited places. Moreover, she has a great sense of homour, she has a lot of energy and very easy-going! Although the tour was long (12 hours) it was very interesting and we enjoyed every minute! The other passengers were also very nice, friendly and openminded, it was interesting to talk to each other. We recommend this tour everybody who would like to discover the essential of these countries and get unforgetable memories!
This was the second trip I took with this company. My tour guide was Laura. Despite her age, she was incredibly professional and very informative. surely being a history student helped. she did exactly what she was supposed to do. She was responsible, considerate and kind. The day was long. 12 hours. so many places to see and to do. unfortunately, we had very little time in places we stopped particularly in Viljandi and Cecis towns but as I said it is a long trip and I can totally understand the rush. The lunch stop was well chosen. The food was great (though more expensive than the one we had in Vilnius-Riga tour). I would strongly recommend this tour to anybody who is doing the Baltic tour. Thank you, Laura. you are a star!
"Fantastic day with a very knowledgeable guide"
This is such a great trip. Laura was a brilliant guide, she put 100% in all day and we learned so much about Latvian and Estonian history. Her knowledge about all aspects of Estonia was impressive and she coped with loads of "interesting" questions from a couple of our fellow travelers! We saw parts of the 2 counties that we would never have seen on a normal coach and especially enjoyed the short trek in the forest. Lunch was very good and, as we had pre-orded, served with the minimum of fuss and waiting time. On a seperate note, we would like to acknowledge the help from Heleene in the office as we managed to confuse the dates for our bookings and it took a few emails to make sure that it was all sorted. All in all, I can thoroughly recommend the company and the tour.
"Great way of traveling between cities. "
I liked the stops along the way, But maybe we should be given the option to actually use the bobsled as opposed to just visit the track. Cesis town was my favorite. Our tour guide was flexible and caring. He drove carefully and attentive. The only think I would change is the choice of restaurant for lunch. It was not an authentic restaurant but a hotel restaurant which to me doesn’t align with the feel of the trip. Everyone that was taking this tour in our van were experienced travelers looking for cool experiences. I think a more traditional place will be more appreciated. A special thank you to our tour guide which showed us “city people” how to pick blueberries! I never tasted any blueberries as good as those. I think we all felt it was super awesome to do. We looked like little kids picking and eating blueberries from the shrubs. :-)
"Great tour guide"
Although some of the stops are a little bit random (the museum is strange and none of the exhibits are in English), this is a great tour made even better by a brilliant, funny tour guide. The fact that there were only 4 of us on the bus made the day even better.
"Tour-iffic trip through Latvia and Estonia "
We had a fantastic time on our tour with our knowledgeable and friendly guide Karolis. The sights were unique and interesting (particularly Gauja National Park). Karolis was really knowledgeable about the plants and animals of the region, and we enjoyed getting to learn about local biodiversity. Plus the van was a very comfortable ride!
"Really lovely, scenic and informative... "
Me and my friend took the tour from Riga to Tallinn. There were many great activities on the way, but for us the highlight was the national park. So beautiful! Our tour guide Kamile was so friendly and informative and made the trip super special. She went out of her way to make everyone in the group comfortable. My friend is particularly interested in Baltic history and Kamile shared many fascinating stories with her that totally made her day. Highly recommended!
"History and Nature"
The trip was fun and I learned a lot from our guide.
Very nice guide (Kamile), well prepared and full of energy. Highly recommend!
"Oh so very worth it!"
Really quite brilliant experience on this tour - coming from the UK I hold my hands up and admit I knew little about the Baltic nations and it was a brilliant insight into the nature, history and culture of the area. The guide Kamile was lovely and very informative, took very good care of us catering for anything we needed! We travelled alongside a group of friends from Luxembourg and a family from Romania which was also great for meeting new people and we had chances to share experiences over lunch and whilst exploring the beautiful and interesting locations we visited. So much learnt, so much to admire - for the price it is so worth the experience, the 12 hour journey passed by and it was a shame to have to end it!
"Jaan the Great"
Jaan created a great experience. At first we did not know what to expect. But after a few minutes we laughed and had fun already in the early morning. Jaan made us enthusiastic about both the Latvian as well as the Estonion history and culture. Jaan served us well and was flexible in accepting our requests. Beer, history and culture: wow!
"Riga to Tallin"
Stopped at enough places to make the trip interesting. Lunch at the hunting lodge was delish
"Best way to make the journey!"
Zero hassle way of travelling between two great cities, with stops along the way at locations I would never have found otherwise. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and the sights were amazing. Would definitely recommend.
"Interesting way to get between cities"
I really liked that we were able to see multiple cities, but I wish we had more free time to explore (even just 15 to 20 minutes). Everything was a bit too rigid. I really wanted to spend more time in Gauja National Park and in Viljandi. The tour was still good though and if you want to see more cities, it is definitely worth it. I was really thankful that the guide dropped us off at our hotel too!
This tour is a convenient way to get from one city to the next and learn/see some things along the way - though it does make for a long day. Our guide, Karolis was very knowledgeable and interesting to talk to. He really knows his nature so he was able to give much more insight during the short hiking portion. I enjoyed most aspects of the tour but I could have passed on the military museum. The history is interesting but the entire museum was in Estonian so besides Karolis’ explanation there wasn’t much to engage with. I would have rather used that time to visit another place or even have a short guided walk at our destination. The other locations are quite nice though - especially Viljandi. All in all, I would recommend the tour - just bring snacks and be prepared for a long day!
"Beautiful countryside, great experience"
We loved the tour from Riga to Tallinn. Beautiful countryside, breathtaking views and a very knowledgeable guide. We choose the private group tour and it was perfect for 4 people(two couples). I would definitely recommend the experience and the history lesson.
A great experience. A very peaceful and kind guide. He gave us a lot of information about plants in the Gauja parc as he is a biologist.
"Great tour! "
The tour was fantastic, as was our guide! I loved all the stops, especially the national park. Beautiful landscapes and wonderful towns! We even had a little karaoke session on the longer part of the drive through Estonia! We have the perfect tour size and awesome people who made it all a great trip. It was also special to see smaller towns and to get out of the bigger cities!
"Well organized tour to Tallinn! Beats just a bus ride"
The tour was a great way to see Latvia/Estonia before getting to Tallinn. While it stops in Sigulda, the tour does not include the Bobsleigh so recommend going by train (or car) separately if you want to ride the bob sleigh (only on weekends). I enjoyed the stops along the way, but could have skipped the museum. Mikelis got us into Tallinn at 9 pm as promised. My favorite part was the Gaujas National Park which was beautiful, and Mikelis was very passionate about the park and the plants.
It was an excellent tour, with well planned stops and Anna's joyful personality. The only thing that needed improvement was the meeting place. Address given was a bar and since we arrived early, we could not be sure if we were at the right place. A little bit more descriptive information would have helped tremendously.
"A very nice way to reach Tallin’"
If you go to Tallin from Rīga do not hesitate to take this tour. The places we visit were all interesting, each in its own way, and our guide, Laura, was excellent. She was extra nice and told us a lot about the history, society, way people of these countries live.
"Diverse and entertained "
A very nice way to travel between cities!
"Guided tour to Tallin!"
We had planned a small tour starting in Riga and finishing in Helsinki before we went back home to Sweden. Instead of just taking the bus from Riga to Tallin we were happy to find a guided tour. Our guide was very good and lively and made the tour to a nice experience. It was also nice to meet some interesting people from other countries since we shared the van with some Canadians and Americans. I absolutely recommend this tour! My favorite stop was in Cēsis.
Anna was fantastic. There ended up only myself and another couple which was brilliant. We saw a wide range of sites and it made the travel fun and exciting. We were well taken care of. I also got to play my music the whole way and the lunch was lovely!
"Riga to Talinn tour"
Lovely guide - very helpful and knowledgeable!
"A nice trip"
We spent almost 12 hours discovering some of the most interesting places between Riga and Tallinn, enjoying the tales of our guide. Normally this kind of tours has tight rhythms, but this time I felt it relaxed and relaxing, so it was particularly pleasant. Thanks to our friendly guide and to her sociable attitude I learned many things.
"Great way to get from Riga to Tallinn learning more about the history and culture of Latvia and Estonia "
Kätlin was a great guide and driver. She told us about the history, geography and culture of Latvia and Estonia in a humorous way.
"Small, well paced and friendly"
The points of interest along the way we’re well chosen, with a good time span. Lunch was yum. Our guide/driver was a delight.
A excellent way to travel between Riga and Tallinn and see the countryside. I enjoyed the stops. The guides were very informative but would have preferred less time at military museum and more time at Cesis.
"Good group of travelers, good guide, good visiting schedule"
Took the tour on June 22nd and It was a very good way to explore the area, mostly because I didn't have the time to explore the places by myself. The other travelers in my tour were great and the guide was also very knowledgeable ( I think it was Jaan). I asked to be dropped off half of the way to catch a bus to Tartu and they manged pretty well my special request. It was really worth it. Highly recommended.
"Fun but with some serious history"
This tour shows you a lot on what would be a dull journey by an ordinary bus on main roads. In Latvia you get the novelty of the former Soviet bobsleigh track, which is still in use, quaint small town life at Cesis and a quiet forest by a river beach in a nerdy national park. On the Estonian side there is a museum telling the history of the 20th century from a distinctly Estonian perspective and a ruined caste at Viljandi completely with a giant swing that all ages can play on. Our guide was very friendly and informative
"A lovely day on the road "
The transfer from Riga to Tallinn was truly enriched by this tour. Charming historic towns and beautiful nature made for a perfect combination. Highly recommended!
"Wonderfull Tour by a lovely tourguide named Kamile"
So this wasn’t the fist time I did a tour with Travellers. I also did the tour from Vilnius to Riga. And I was so lucky to have Kamile for both of the tours. She is a very spontaneous woman who can bring a story very well. In the militairy museum she gold us the emotional story of her grandmother. I never thanked her for that so I hope she will trad this. And I think she will.
Our guide Karolis is a young and energetic guide. He tried to do his best to make the trip comfortable and interesting. He is very kind and try to explain in details on the tour points. Unfortunately the weather is bad. So I put the overall rating as 4 stars. I believe under good weather condition, the tour will be rated as 5 stars.
"The Twist: Nick’s first tour as a guide"
First of all, I want to say that my guides were incredibly entertaining and quite knowledgeable. A Estonian and a Latvian helped give perspective from both sides while also highlighting the shared bond between the Baltic nations. I hate to admit that we all said goodbye rather quickly once we reached Tallinn because everyone seemed tired...in my case I had partied the night before in Riga so staying up was a challenge. I’m very glad I took this specialized tour, made my adventure in the Baltics truly unforgettable and unique. If possible, please pass on my info to both guides. Would love to reconnect. They shocked me at the end of the trip announcing that it was Mick’s first day on the job. Quite a twist. He’s a pro. On LinkedIn: Juan G. Perez On Instagram (pics of the tour): juanygpa I forget my girl guide’s name, the Estonian, my apologies
"Turned what should have been the most boring day of our holiday into the best day of our holiday"
We're still blown away by the sheer force of nature that is (Estonian) Laura, our wonderful guide for the day. Nothing was too much trouble, she went way beyond the call of duty to make sure we had a great and memorable day. If anyone is considering a trip from Riga to Tallinn this has to be the ONLY way to do it. We can't recommend it enough and Laura, we look forward to hopefully one day making you feel as welcome in the UK as you made us feel in Latvia and Estonia.
"Super knowledgeable guide"
Our guide Laura (Estonia) was so sweet and engaging. She is also super knowledgeable with her History major background (must have been an ace student). She was eagerly answering all our questions for 9 whole hours non stop, I feel bad for her throat! :× I gained so much knowledge of Estonia by the end of it, that I could answer some of the otber guide's questions and give other tourist interesting facts!
"Fantastic day out"
Jaan was a fantastic guide who made the journey fun and informative. We saw some interesting sights and learnt a lot of important history about Estonia. I especially liked the museum stop. The museum itself wasn't exceptional but Jaan's narrative on modern Estonia using the exhibits was great. Totally recommended.
"Another amazing tour"
To complete our tour of the Baltics, we of course had to go to quiet Estonia. Our tour guide grew up in Tartu and currently resides in Tallinn so he knew the area very well. There are a couple of stops in Latvia where you get to see the remnants of an old castle. You get to see the sand stone cliffs though beware that this is a hike of climbing stairs so make sure to wear sneakers. Our guide was very nice and provided us with bug spray because of the mosquitoes but the real problem turned out to be the flies that circled your head and never landed which actually led to the 6 o'clock fly story so even that had a positive spin to things. Lunch was just over the Estonian border in the city of two countries (Valka in Latvian and Valga in Estonian) and this was followed by a trip to a military museum where Jaan shared his personal experience in the mandatory defence forces and what it was like to grow up during all of these changing times for Estonia. He also picked out some items to give funny stories to make the museum more light hearted. That part of the trip alone would have earned this tour 5 stars. We then went to see the ruins of a castle and it's three lines of defence and while there, we got to try out the kiik. We definitely didn't go 360 but it was still fun. We got dropped of in Old Town of Tallinn between the information center and freedom square so it was really easy to navigate. Great job Jaan. Sorry Estonia didn't pick the hedgehog as the national animal.
"Jaan was great ... I'd change some of the itinerary"
Overall, a good experience. Jaan was a good guide ... friendly, knowledgeable, excellent English. I would change up some of the itinerary. In particular, I'd skip the bobsled facility in Sigulda (especially in the summer, when there really isn't much to see) and spend more time on the Sietiniezis trail and in Cesis and Vijandi. LIked the lunch stop; in Valga, I would recommend spending less time inside the military museum and allowing time to wander outside among the military vehicles.
"It was a great way to get from Riga to Tallinn"
We learned so much about the history of the Baltic region and of Estonia, and how the people live. Andres was knowledgeable as well as entertaining. Also, he was a good and careful driver. We enjoyed seeing the countryside, the national park, and the small towns along the way. The bobsled run and the museum were not for us, but some people might like them. As a suggestion, we would rather have had at least some part of the trip along the coast, if such a thing is possible, given the time constraints of the day.
"Kristal is a doll..smart too!"
Kristal discussed not just Estonian history but offered a lot of modern cultural and political information that we and our fellow travelers requested. We feel lucky that we got her. She said our hotel was en route so dropped us at the door before proceeding to old town with the other passengers. Thanks Kristal!
"Roadtrip on a sunny day"
My family of 7 booked this tour and we are so glad we did. Our guide Mario (Marju) was so pleasant and well informed. She answered any question we had and made the journey so interesting. We visited some lovely places along the way and even got to go swimming in a river and a lake . The time passed so fast and our guide was a great driver .
My wife & I were picked up from our Vilnius hotel on time. Group comprised only 3. Tour guide (Andrea's? ..) was very informative throughout the tour, interesting, amusing, safe driving and telling us of his personal life as a Lithuanian. We were given sufficient 'free time' at sites to explore for ourselves. We were dropped off at our Riga hotel on time at the end of a most enjoyable day. We were so impressed with the tour that we decided to take a similar tour/transfer between Riga & Tallinn. I'm more than happy to recommend a Traveller day tour from Vilnius to Riga to others.
"Loved every moment of the tour"
My 66 year old mom and I had a great time. The van was comfortable and interesting sights were included in the tour. The bobsleigh track was not as steep as it looked and my mom who wasn't exactly agile could walk on it. The restaurant served tasty lunch at reasonable price. The sights in Viljandi, Valga, Cēsis, and Sigulda were interesting and so the 12-hour tour did not feel dragged on.
"No better way to travel between cities in the Baltics!"
(I have also reviewed the Vilnius-Riga tour with similar high marks). We traveled to the Baltics with my elderly father, and to make things easier for him, we looked at more organized tours than we might have on our own. We considered driving, taking the train or a direct bus, but I'm so glad we opted for this small van tour. Very interesting way to see out of the ordinary places with well-informed guides who were very responsive to group interests and questions. This "transit" experience turned out to be one of the highlights of our 17 day trip. Highly recommended!
"Interactive and well organized"
The tour has about 5 stop in latvia and estonia. We liked most the medieval towns, the national park and the restaurant where stopped to eat. And Laura, our guide was fun and made the day very interactive.
"History, sights and fun"
The only way to get from Riga to Tallinn. Great tour guide. Thanks Liine.
"Un buon tour"
Un bel tour soprattutto la tappa del Gauja national park, opinabile la scelta del museo militare di Valga per le scritte solo in estone. La guida era molto preparata, ma dava lunghe spiegazioni parlando molto velocemente perciò, avendo una limitata conoscenza dell'inglese, a volte non riuscivo ad ascoltare completamente il discorso.
"Much Better way to travel from Riga to Tallinn"
So the arrangement of the ticket can be better at least an online pdf etc a proof that we bought something ;) but the guide was friendly and talkative also the places we visited were nice. It is a small van which makes it also agile. All in all I had good time and it was worth it.
"Amazing trip "
It was a well planned and well executed trip
"What a great and funny trip to Tallinn!!"
We took the traveller tours bus from Riga to Tallinn. It was the best choice! We had an amazing trip with lots of nice stops at different spots which were all really worth it to see! Thanks to Traveller Tours and especially to Kert who made this experience possible :) he also was very funny, we could ask questions whenever we wanted to. In general it was just very nice to have a talk with him. We definitely would choose this option to travel from Riga to Tallinn again!
"The Perfect tour"
We booked a private tour from Riga to Tallinn. Right on time our guide Andres arrived at our hotel. Andres is extremely knowledgeable and has a vibrant personality that made the day spent with him a real pleasure. Despite freezing temperatures and snow we covered all the wonderful sights on our itinerary before the early dark of winter descended. The day was the highlight of our European trip.
"The most fabulous tour ever - must go"
Andres is an accommodative, friendly and caring guide. We went to the bob sledding track to see and understand the sport. Fauna’s National park. The local cosy homey cafe for lunch. Cesis town. Viljandi town and head to Tallinn. You are able to see and visit places that you don't know and have difficult to get to. Andres even took us to our hostel to save us the time. I really liked this tour and feel so happy it took it.
The guide was a friendly young man doing his best. Unfortunately his English was not so good. As a driver he seemed to have trouble shifting gears. Finally he had a strong smell of sweat over him, every passenger noticed that...
"1 day trip Riga-Tallinn"
Excelent way to go from one city to another. Our guide, Tiin, is such a good storyteller, (also a driver), she made our day with historic facts&emotional stories about the war and the baltics in general. The stops between Riga and Tallinn were what we need it: an escape from the capitals to enjoy some nature and go local. Also the place were we ate was nice&cozy and thw food really good.
"Disappointing and overpriced"
Unfortunately, after reading other reviews, our expectations of this tour were high and they were not met. The weather didn’t help as we could not make one stop due to incessant rain and the short stroll in the National Park was pretty miserable. However, the other three stops were fairly irrelevant. There was nothing to see at the bobsleigh track and the military museum was nothing more than a glorified antique shop, selling war medals to people who didn’t earn them. The medieval town was pretty but again, had very little to see.it was definitely not worth dedicating 12 hours to seeing. Our guide was friendly and very open to questions but his inexperience was obvious. The lunch we chose was delicious but overall, we definitely would not be recommending this trip.
"Fantastic tour from Riga to Tallinn"
We had a great tour with Triin from Riga to Tallinn. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We got to visit places we never would have been able to by ourselves. Our guide was great and she told us a lot about the history of the Baltics. We specifically designed our vacation around this Riga-Tallinn tour and we weren't disappointed. I would recommend it to everyone traveling through the region.
Me and my friend have booked a trip from Riga to Tallin. Our guide was Kert and the trip could not be better! Despite the freezing weather we have seen several marvellous places, have learnt from Kert a billion of interesting facts and stories and have enjoyed the company of each other. Kert is a nice, helpful, flexible and joyful guide, who respected our wishes and needs. We are glad that this tour was with him!
