"A great trip"

We did the bus tour Riga-Tallin. Laura was our guide/driver. A great experience: we just needed to travel one-way from Riga to Tallin and we decided to book the tour instead of a conventional bus or train ticket. We spent a nice and funny day. The tour is well organized, no rush and you can merge a transfer trip with a visit of some of the best Latvian and Estonian location. A special thanks to Laura (she is really one of the most energetics and positive person I have ever met) who was able to entertain us during the whole trip. Totally recommended and a must-go trip if you have to travel through Baltic capitals

"Amazing good guided overview about latvian and estonian countrysideat 10.August 2019."

In a comfortable new 9-seat van we get an excellent tour not only about countryside between Riga and Tallinn, but also an historical&cultural overview with all its details about development of populatian,language, traditional food, music etc. Private story of family and experiences of our guide added to the normal facts made it very special. I recommend it to all newbys in Latvia&Estonia!!!

"Interesting way to travel from Latvia to Tallin"

I loved the tour and the company. If you want a nice trip between Riga and Tallin rather than a boring journey I would recommend it. Small negative I felt the tour guide was more interested in Estonian history than Latvian and we could have had more historical detail. Not sure about the military museum as I have an aversion to nationalism and militarism and the exhibits were only labelled in Estonian. It was interesting however to learn about Estonia’s struggle for independence. Lunch in Valga was great food. Other highlights were the Gauja national park and Viljendi.

"Fabulous!"

We spent a lovely day sightseeing with a fun group and learned so much about the local history from our extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. Perfect way to travel from Riga to Tallinn!!

"Great way of travelling from Riga to Tallinn"

A great tour taken by Sten, don't feel rushed at all and we have some to explore a bit ourselves sometimes too. I think its a convenient way making your way from Riga to Tallinn
