Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"Excellent guide"

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

"Great trip"

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!

"Full Bus"

Eight travelers, 12 hours. Too long. Cut it to. 9-10 hours.

Meeting Point

Riga-Tallinn and Riga-Vilnius tour buses leave in front of Riga Old Town Hostel, Vaļņu iela 43, Riga.
