"Good visit "

We drove with two other passengers. Good conversations. Stoped at many interesting sites. The military museum was unnecessary. The two castles and national park and bobsled track were wonderful. The total trip, though, took too long. A little less time at some places would be good. We left at 9 am and arrived 9pm. An hour earlier would have been better. Mike was a good guide and fun company.

"Lynx, FA, Secret, Rexona... Use one please"

Tour was fantastic, the guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and able to engage the group very easily. However, some deodorant and/or a change of t-shirt wouldn't go astray.

"Great tour!! "

Very enjoyable trip- great walk in the national park and Mike was really knowledgable :) lunch stop was lovely and we especially enjoyed the in car sing-a-longs! Thanks for a fabulous day!

"Informative and Fun"

We took the trip on August 26th and it was well worth it as was the trip from Vilnius to Riga. There is temptation to just see the 3 Baltic capitals but this is a mistake. These trips enable you to see more of the 3 countries. This tour had 5 different u Interesting stops plus an excellent lunch at a brewery. Mike the guide was excellent. Highly recommended

"great tour, great guide, well spend time"

12 hours maybe sound long but it was really worth it, we saw interesting places where we would not have get on our own, the guide told good stories, lunch was delicious

"Fantastic way to travel between Latvia and Estonia"

Our guide / driver was excellent, would highly recommend. Numerous stops along the way, their is some light hiking involved so this trip is not suitable for mobility issues. Would a recommend bringing snacks and water, it is a very long 12h day. The lunch stop was superb after crossing border to Estonia however this comes late in the day 2-3pm.

Meeting Point

The tour starts in front of Riga Old Town Hostel, Vaļņu iela 43, Riga. Our guide will meet you at the marked meeting point.
