"Great tour, great guide"

The tour was great. A big shoutout to our guide Mike: he was awesome! He told us many stories about Latvia and Estonia, helped us understanding better the history of these 2 countries, he narrated folk stories about the places we visited, he explained different type of plants and vegetation, etc. he is very knowledgeable and he is also talented: he sang for us a popular song at Viljandi! ( he’s a great at singing!). His English is excellent. The tour was well organized with a good balance between driving time and visiting places. Although the trip is from 9:00 to 21:00, the time went by quickly. Everything was perfect, the only thing I would change is the stop at the War Museum. Although the content is interesting ( and Mike did a great job in explaining things and even shared family stories regarding the Soviet occupation of Latvia) the displays at the museum need some improvement ( the dummies in uniform were a bit outdated) Probably, more time in the nature would be better.

"Amazing day trip "

We did the Riga-Tallinn sightseeing tour and it was great. We got to see small local towns that we never would’ve known about normally. Our guide Mike was fantastic, and had loads of interesting information on the areas visited.

"Pleasant countryside tour"

Had a great tour between Riga and Tallin. Got to learn about the history of the Baltics from a local. Got to see parts of the countryside I wouldn’t have been able to see on a motor transfer. Well worth the price/time. Was great to have a tour from someone who was so passionate about his countries History.

"Highlight of our trip"

We did the Riga to Tallinn sightseeing tour. Guide Mikelis took us for a long day full of sightseeing. We departed on time, the guide was there to greet us. The van was spacy, and very comfortable. We were so glad that we could participate, to enjoy the countryside and to see so much more of both Latvia and Estonia. Started at the bobsleigh track which was fun because we could walk down the track on foot. Soooo funny. The national park with the limestone cliffs was crazy beautiful. The guide explained a lot, let us taste some herbs in nature and he even sang for us. The towns of Cesis and Viljandi both were lovely. Had the opportunity to have lunch in a great restaurant in Valga. For us the least Intresting part was the military museum. But the highlight of the day was that we saw a wild brown bear near the woodlands, just beside the road. Incredible!!!!!! Mikelis was also so sweet to make a stop so I could photography one of the many many stork nests near the farms. I cannot recommend this tour enough, but it wouldn't have been as much fun as we didn't had this fantastic guide Mikelis.Thumbs up guys, keep on the good work!

"Excellent way to travel between capitals"

My partner and I took the Riga to Tallinn tour and the journey was not only very comfortable but also so much fun and full of information. Sten, our guide was so knowledgeable and funny and we had great conversations all the way! This was probably the best guided tour we took in the area so we recommend it highly.

"Awesome Tour"

This tour was great fun and probably the best way to travel from Riga to Tallinn (or vice versa). Stan was an awesome guide and telled us a lot fun stories and a lot about history. I recommend this tour to anyone travelling the Baltics.

Meeting Point
