"Great experience "
A wonderful way to travel between Riga and Tallinn. Vehicle was comfortable and pick up location easy to find. What made the tour particularly good was the guide - Laura. We were so impressed with her knowledge and manner. She was able to answer questions on so many subjects! Her driving was excellent. A very impressive person!!
"Riga to Talinn tour"
Lovely guide - very helpful and knowledgeable!
"12 hours might sound scary but time flies!"
Laura was awesome and informative. The stops were well timed! Beautiful drive and we liked everything.
"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
"tour Riga - Tallinn"
The tour was well organised, the guide very friendly and helpfull. We had different nice stops (museum, nature, town, castle, bobslee)
"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!
I was amazed how quickly the time went and how soon we were approaching our destination, Tallin. If it is about the journey then this is a good option for you. Great information, quality mini bus and the regular interesting stops get top marks from me.
"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.
It was a fantastic trip. Our guide was great and we saw places that we wouldn’t normally see.
"A good idea from Riga to Tallin"
I found this good idea on Trip Advisor: instead of going straigth from Riga to Tallin, make a relaxed trip with a mini bus and enjoy a different prospective of baltic republics. Our guide was Andreas who drives very confortably, tells the history with many accurate details, takes you to a good restaurant without spending too money, is really a smart guide. Me and my daughter enjoyed this trip and in the end hr took us just under our residence in tallin. It' a wonderful idea going with traveller tours between the capitals. Enjoy it!
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
Perfect experience! Really learned a lot about these two country, the trip was well prepared and scheduled and the food was really impressive!
"No better way to travel from Riga to Tallinn!"
My sister and I opted to take a scenic van tour from Riga to Tallinn instead of flying or a bus, and we are so extremely happy we did! Chamomile and Lara were absolutely fantastic tour guides and we were blown away by how knowledgeable they were on the history of each town we visited. The itinerary allowed us to see the infamous bobsled track, eat lunch on the border of Estonia and Latvia, check out a few small towns rich in history, walk in a national park and try out the large swing activity, which was incredible. I would recommend the tour, and these two tour guides in particular, to everyone as we learned an incredible amount about the Baltic history, saw places we would without a doubt otherwise not see, and get to meet a few new friends along the way!
"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.
"The ONLY way to get to Tallinn!"
My family of 3 LOVED our trip between Riga and Tallinn with Anna. The stops were GREAT and made what could have been a boring travel day into a fun adventure! We never would have found the sites we visited on our own, nor would we have learned as much. The van was comfortable, Anna was kind and knowledgeable, and the restaurant where we are at lunch was excellent. Book this trip; you won’t regret it!
"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.
"Great way to experience the northern Baltics! "
Absolutely one of the highlights of my trip! Laura T and Kamile were very friendly and knowledgeable! Great experience!
A very smart and useful way to move from Riga to Tallinn. Many interesting places to visit: nature, culture, sport with a great guide!
"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.
"A wonderful way to travel"
We had a great day with our guide Anna. She was kind and energetic and ready to answer our questions. The stops along the way were varied, so there’s something everyone can enjoy. The lunch was delicious. I took my one year old son on the tour, and both Anna and the company were kind and accommodating. Thank you for a lovely 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!
"See all the important milestones in one day"
I was looking into doing the same tour on my own, when I quicly realized that there aren't a lot of options in public transportation between each town. I am very happy that I booked this tour because I got to see all the important things between Riga and Tallin and got an explanation on top. The staff was very friendly and the food was great.
"Simply brilliant with Marju, a great experience"
Marju was well informed and very informative and entertaining. The trip was inteeesting in terms of content and we had luck with the weather. So, all in all a very nice experience!
"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.
When me and a friend reserved a place on this tour, we expected it to be pretty commercial and impersonal, however a good alternative to taking the standard bus from Riga to Tallinn. However it was one of the highlights of our overall trip, Kert and Jaan gave this tour the personal touch that made the experience relaxed and fun. It felt as though they put as much effort as they could in to making the tour a success, the knowledge that they both had and the personal touches they added were what turned a potentially bland tour in to an utter success. Would thoroughly recommend to anybody wanting to experience the more hidden parts of these two beautiful countries.
"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!
Laura was our wonderful guide from Riga to Tallinn--she provided us with history, interesting tidbits of info, and funny stories. A great opportunity to see things off the beaten path! We had beautiful weather, enjoyed all the stops, and had a lot of fun along the way.
"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.
"Great trip with a good guide and a fun group"
The day trip from Riga to Tallinn was really great and fun. We left on time and were a nice group of 8 people. Our guide Laura was nice and funny, told us about the stops and the history and answered every question we had. I usually don't book guided tours, but this one was worth it!
"Excellent Sightseeing Tour Bus"
This is an excellent tour to get from Riga to Tallinn, or vice versa. Our guide Liine was fantastic, she was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We highly recommend doing this tour, Liine made it a fun day, with lots of interesting things to see and enjoy. First class Liine!!!
"History, sights and fun"
The only way to get from Riga to Tallinn. Great tour guide. Thanks Liine.
"An excellent way to see some of Latvia and Estonia"
Our guide Marju was great - nice, interesting, informative and able to answer any question she was asked, but didn't hold forth unnecessarily between stops. We had a nice small group (and I was lucky with my travel companions too) and the stops were well spaced, never too long in the minibus. Very glad I decided to do the trip and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a bit of both countries but doesn't have much time to spare.
"Great tour, excellent guide!"
Good value of money to travel from Riga to Tallinn, fun and comfortable. Linee is our guide, she is very outgoing, nice and passionate. We do enjoy listening to her stories through out the journey.
"Wonderful tour "
Great way to travel between Riga and Tallinn. The tour provides an opportunity to see the countryside and to learn about the region. Our guide was fantastic - provided lots of information and was happy to answer all of our questions. Would definitely recommend.
The trip was brilliant and our guide (Kätlin) was superb - fun, engaging knowledgable and with faultless English.
"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.
"Great way of transfer from Riga to Tallinn"
Highly recommended tour. Our transfer from one country to another became more interesting. Excellent way of transfer instead of just a boring ride in a bus. We're able to see villages and towns along our way. We appreciated more the countries and learned more about their cultures. Our tour guide Kalev was really good and was kind enough to drop us in our hotel after a long trip since it's far from the old town/city centre. Would definitely recommend this tour to our family and friends.
"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.
"Rigas to tallinns!"
What a fantastic way of getting from A to B. I would highly recommend taking the journey between cities. It’s far more interesting that sitting on a train, plane or direct bus. You get to see the REAL country.
"Fantastic, convenient way to travel between Riga - Tallinn"
Overall experience was fantastic - what a great way to travel between two places and fit a bit more into your trip. Our tour guide Kätlin was amazing, she was incredibly knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour - throwing in hilarious little bits of information here and there along with all the great historical facts. Couldn’t rate her highly enough! She went out of the way to make sure everyone was having a good time and involved everyone. The places we stopped were also great - lunch was really tasty. There didn’t seem to be too many stops or too few, just perfect. Loved the National Park and the swings (my favourite). Thanks very much!
"Thank's for a great day trip"
We had a great trip with our guide who was incredibly informative, friendly and really made the tour. This is a great way to see both Latvia and Estonia from a different perspective and the history and local knowledge that our guide provided was fantastic. The stops were really varied and we were thankful to have seen some unique sights along the way. Thank you again for a great day trip and we would recommend this to anyone doing the journey from Riga to Tallinn or vice versa.
"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.
This tour was well worth the time. As newcomers to Eastern Europe, my friend and I were very excited at every stop of this tour. Each site was unique and interesting, and there was a nice blend of nature, history, and fun attractions. My favorite part of the tour was the National Park, but all had different strengths. Our tour guide, Kert, was very knowledgeable and fun, and I would definitely take another tour with the company!
"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 highlight of our trip "
An excellent day with a knowledgeable and funny guide. Highly recommended! If you’re going from Riga to Tallinn or viceversa it’s a must!
"Great value for your money"
I took two different tours with these folks in August 2017, the Riga-Tallinn tour bus and the Laheema national park tour. Both were so reasonably priced, I was amazed how much bang I got for my buck. I absolutely recommend it. The free walking tour was also excellent.
"Riga - Tallinn sightseeing tour"
Amazing. Highly recommended. This is a one way trip on a minibus, takes all day and includes major sights along the way. Absolutely the very best way to travel from Riga to Tallinn. Great fun, passionate and experienced and knowledgeable guide, brilliant sights. This sightseeing tour allows you to see things along the trip which would be much more complicated and time-consuming to set up from either end. Where else would you see a Soviet bobsleigh track? We loved the medieval and pretty small towns and castles but the forest walk to sandstone cliffs above a beautiful river - and then blueberry picking - was particularly amazing. And great company too. Thanks for a memorable day!
"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!
"Don't hesitate to take this magical mystery minibus tour"
Yes! We took the Riga-Tallinn tour on 13 August 2016 and had a great time, even though it was a bit of a grey, drizzly day. The guides were fun and interesting, and we saw all sorts of things we never would have encountered on our own, plus learned some history. Great conversations about life in Estonia with our driver/guide -- and we made some new friends amongst the other riders. We don't usually do tours as we like a bit of adventure and independence; even if you are like us, but want a fun, interesting way to get between Tallinn and Riga, don't hesitate to take this magical mystery minibus tour. We're glad we did.
"The perfect way to travel to Tallinn"
We did the Riga - Tallinn sightseeing tour on sun. 24/7. It was the perfect way to travel to Tallinn. Comfortable ride, enough interesting, beautiful stops with great information on the spot by the guide. We have seen places we would normally never visit (or even find). A very recommended way the travel from Riga to Tallinn! P.S. Ask for Kris, he has a lovely sense of humor...
"Couldn't be happier about our decision"
We wanted to take a regular bus from Riga to Tallinn first, but decided to do this tour instead and couldn't be happier about our decision. Kris was a reasonable and dedicated driver and a hilarious and kind guide. Thank you for that awesome day!
"Highly recommended for Riga-Tallinn travel"
Our guide Liine was fun, full of energy and extremely knowledgable as well as being a safe driver. The tour makes for a long day but it is very varied and well planned with plenty of stops. we had a couple of lovely walks as well as seeing some local towns and some offbeat attractions! I felt well looked after. Highly recommended as a way of travelling from Riga and Tallin.
