"Great trip from Riga to Tallinn"

We really enjoyed our day trip and gave as a better understanding of the two countires, which is often missed when only visiting capital cities. It was a very long day, and the last section was about 2 and a half hours, so my back was a little sore the ne t day. Our guide was a little quiet a reserved, but extremely knowledgeable about each of the places we visited.

"A most memorable travel"

The driver/guides. (Laura and Beatrice) were excellent, courteous, informative, entertaining and charming. The buses were comfortable the food was fine, the pace relaxed, no time pressure. Traveller input and preferences were considered, . It was a wonderful trip. I would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you.

"The best way to travel from Riga to Tallin"

We really enjoyed the tour. Andres was a perfect guide, professional, prepared, brilliant, and attentive. The atmosphere was cosy, the group was very pleasent, and we spent a memorable day!

"First time in Baltic countries"

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

"Perfect pace, amazing guide "

We found this tour a much better pace than the other. There was just the right amount of time in each place, with no long waits. Our guide Elina came with us on each stop and took us around sharing stories and information. The lunch stop was also fantastic value. Highly recommend.

"Crossed the border with Anna. "

A great day. This is a ‘no brainer’ option tour for getting from Riga to Tallinn (or the opposite). It was comfortable, interesting and we saw sights that are more than the run of the mill tourist spots. Even the lunch stop was amazing. We arrived in Tallinn with plenty of time for dinner. Getting the inside on Latvia and Estonia from a young, respectful, interesting and capable tour guide gave us a real perspective on these countries that have endured a tough history. Thanks to Anna and our new friends for the day for a memorable day.
