"Lovely tour guide however the bus is a bit too small"

Enjoyed the tour a little but I don’t think it’s something for me. It’s a long time on the small bus with other people sitting so closely to you. It’s more of a large car than a bus. I did really enjoy seeing the towns and the National Park and the guide was a lovely guy who knew a lot about the Estonia and Latvia. My partner enjoyed this tour more than I did. I don’t think it’s for everyone but you definitely won’t regret it.

"Excellent"

That was great way to get from Riga to Tallinn & Mike is a very friendly tour guide

"Best Tour guide ever! "

There would not have been a better way to go to Tallinn from Riga. Marju was exceptional and really made the trip very pleasant. The stops were well planned with adequate time to go around. The best part was the associated information that Marju conveyed effortlessly keeping the tour quite interesting! The lunch was at an amazing place with great local cuisine. Marju was able to get us there despite the place not being fully available as it was the day after christmas. The van was comfortable and driving was good. She also provided great pointers on what to do and try in Tallinn which really helped my stay in Tallinn. Aitah Marju!

"PERFECT"

THE TRIP IS AMAZING, EVEN WITH NEGATIVE TEMPERATURES!!

"Highly recommend"

Had an amazing time on this tour. Turned a wasted travel day into a highlight of our trip. Our tour guide Mic was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. Would highly recommend this for anyone heading to or from Tallinn.

"Very patient and experience guide"

We are a group of 8, moving slowly on the wet and slippery floor. Andres is very patience with us. He brought us to the forest and historical castle. He ensure we reach our apartment in Helsinki safely. He is a safe driver and good guide.
