Tours Laura (LT) is Doing
Riga–Tallinn Sightseeing Tour Bus
Explore the very best of North-Latvian & South-Estonian countryside on your way to Tallinn.
Laura is a bundle of energy - always funny, bubbly and smiling. She would be able to run a marathon and still have energy left over for a karaoke song.
Most of what Laura does comes from her love of people. During university years she helped people from abroad get accustomed to Lithuanian culture and country as a volunteer, she has been a day camp leader as well as a sales rep and has a bachelors in public relations. It’s all about communication and getting to know new ideas and perspectives (pssst…Though hopefully this will be irrelevant in the context of tours, Laura also has a masters in disaster management).
In her free time you can find Laura either enjoying company of her friends, playing volleyball singing and playing guitar or hanging out in beautiful places in the Lithuanian nature.
On her tours Laura will show you sights you cannot find in brochures or travel guides, all of this adventure is if course accompanied by learning how to sing along to local folk songs under Laura’s expert guidance.

I could've just went to Riga by normal bus, but luckily I found this online! It was a long day but totally worth it. We stopped five times on the way from Vilnius to Riga. Each stop is worth seeing. Laura, our guide, is very passionate about the baltic countries and her love for her home country made it very informative as she also had some personal stories to contribute that added to the experience. Overall, I highly recommend this very personal tour as you will discover places that you might miss otherwise.
First of all, our guide Laura was this energetic and enthusiastic girl, always concerned about all the passengers' needs. Then, she really could transmit her pride to be both Lithuanian and a citizen of the Baltic. The spots we visited showed us some of the history and architecture of Latvia and Lithuania. On the bus, everybody loved it. And that includes my 9-year-old daughter.
We travelled from Vilnius to Riga. We think that this tour was the best choice during our baltic trip! Laura (our guide) was very kind and friendly and gave a lot of information about the visited places. Moreover, she has a great sense of homour, she has a lot of energy and very easy-going! Although the tour was long (12 hours) it was very interesting and we enjoyed every minute! The other passengers were also very nice, friendly and openminded, it was interesting to talk to each other. We recommend this tour everybody who would like to discover the essential of these countries and get unforgetable memories!
If it is your first time from Tallinn to Riga (or the opposite), I highly recommend that you take this tour bus. It is well planed, so the stops are in the most interesting places of the route. There are places that you should spend a lot of time to visit and probably you would need a car. The guide/driver, Laura, was super friendly and answered all our questions, making the whole driving experience more pleasant. It was an excellent experience. Totally recommended.
Would highly recommend these tours and thanks to Laura for an awesome day! I’m so glad I decided to do this - small group, comfy bus, delicious lunch (not included in price but was not too expensive) and getting to see sites I never would have had time to see if I’d just gone straight between Riga and Vilnius! It never felt boring/that we were traveling for too long. Personal favourite - hill of crosses!
It was a great tour! We are glad to have chosen this kind of travelling from Tallinn to Riga. We got to know locations we wouldn´t have seen otherwise. It was very touching to hear about the history of the Baltic States in Valga, interesting to discover the walls of Viljandi castle and fascinating to walk through the streets of Cesis. We loved the stories, Laura told, and her lullaby for the ESC! Thank you, Laura - for this interesting and entertaining day!
Lovely animated guide who enjoys her job, good food and interesting sights. Very recommended
Laura was an amazing, energetic guide! What a treat to get to see not only the capital cities when visiting a country but to tour the countryside and stop at historic places places along the way. This is a great tour and a great company! We've done 2 tours with them and couldn't recommend it more highly!
Laura was an amazing tour guide. She had so much energy and passion for the sites and Lithuania. it made our tour even more exciting and engaging. We were able to ask any questions and she was very informative about the sites. The sites were great and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Laura even gave us a private audition for her upcoming stardom at Eurovision!
Our guide Laura was such a lovely person, a typical Lithuanian girl with so much stories and historical informations about both countries. The group was nice , good mood all the way long. This tour is the best way to discover Lithuania and Latvia, highly recommended!
個人だと行きにくい十字架の丘とか寄りながら、移動も出来てとっても楽しいツアーでした。途中のランチも素敵な場所でした。 トゥラカイ城やカウナスは外を見るだけだけど、ルンダーレ宮殿はお庭は見れました。 お花が綺麗でした。 ガイドさんもとっても良い人でした。
A good way to see things between Riga and Vilnius you would otherwise have to do as side trips. Our guide Laura, was great. A bubbly personality and the ability to provide the background and history of the things we saw without it becoming to dry. A pleasure to spend the day with her.
The tour was super great, We stopped at the most important sites between Riga and Vilnius, saving time and trouble. We were only 8 people in the group, which was perfect for this tour, and we had a fantastic guide, Laura, the best guide you can have. Perfect day with great company
Laura brings 110% of herself to making sure her guests are happy. It works. Our ride from Riga to Vilnius was filled with fascinating stories, beautiful stops, wonderful walks and an awesome lunch. We’d go back to Riga just for the ride!
Everything that is in the description on the website is true! The bus was there on time, there was room for luggage and ... it was comfy to ride in! (I am 2.07 m tall and there was space for my legs.) Our guide was just amazing. You just had to like her from the beginning. She easily connected with all the guests and really made the people see her country (Lithuania) and the Baltic countries in general with her eyes. That means appreciate its beauty and remarkable history. Even though the weather changed between light and heavy rain during the day, she was our sunshine on this day! We can highly recommend taking this trip!
If you don’t have a car but you still want to see important spots from Riga to Vilnius this is your tour!
We didn’t know what to expect out of a 12hour tour with total strangers especially in a country where we had great difficulty with communication. Then the tour made the highlight of our stay, the guide Laura was perfect in creating a lively atmosphere throughout and caring for all our needs. The scenery and the places visited were amazing... highly recommended!
No matter the stops, the guide always makes the trip, and our guide, Laura, was fantastic. She is super enthusiastic, energetic and informative. She is so animated and humorous when delivering the information. Thank you, Laura!!!
I booked this tour primarily to get from Riga to Vilnius. However, the tour turned out to be the highlight of our stay in the area. Laura was so enthusiastic and knowledgable. The places we stopped were ones we would never have known about, nor stopped otherwise. What an enriching and wonderful experience. I highly recommend
When we first booked I wondered what a 180 mile journey over 12 hrs in a mini bus would be like . It was great 👍 . Laura was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic & organised - brilliant! Fellow passengers really nice .The stops were interesting we wouldn’t hesitate to do it again in fact we’ve booked with you to travel from Riga to Tallinn.
The key difference between an excellent and a good tour is the enthusiasm and charisma the guide brings to make things alive and Laura did a fabulous job of it.
This is a great way to go from Riga to Vilnius while visiting around. Everything is well organized, on time, and well set up. Our guide Laura was amazing, she is passionate, devoted and funny. We learned that Lithuania is the best country and Gediminac the best grand duke. Laura made our trip special, despite the bad weather which we were unlucky with. Recommended!
I'm so glad I found this travel / tour! Not only did it provide transportation between the two cities, but it hit all the major "day trip" sites in between. Our tour leader/driver Laura was full on energy and enthusiasm! Can't believe she keep her energy so high for all 12 hours of the tour! Very well designed itinerary- with plenty of short, but sweet stops. Great value too. Going on the Riga to Tallinn tour tomorrow.
What a great way to get from point A to point B with a friendly and helpful Vilnius born guide. The first stop is Trakai where you learn the history of Lithuania and get time to walk around the castle grounds and take in the views of the lake. Next up is Kaunas, the other capital of Lithuania where you get to see castles and river views. Our guide ordered our lunch ahead of time which was good because from Kaunas, it was 2 hours away but the food was great and it is a good time to try Lithuanian food if you haven't already. Gotta have that meat and especially potatoes. The next stop was about a 5 minute drive away to the highlight of the trip: the Hill of Crosses. Now Lithuania doesn't really have hills so some people might not get what they expect but the site is gorgeous and you definitely have to walk up the hill to the other side because there is so much more to see. Bring your own cross to leave behind to the ever growing "hill". Next we crossed over to Latvia. Beware, the roads are not good. I am easily prone to motion sickness and our guide did a fantastic job driving but if you do get car sick, maybe take a pill before you leave. Rundale palace was the first stop and it was very pretty and an excellent example of what palaces in St. Petersburg look like. You get time to walk around the gardens where the most prominent flowers are the roses. The final stop was just outside Riga to a WWII labor camp. Though a sad history, it is an important one and here you get to dwell into it. We were dropped off just inside the Old Town in Riga just north of the bus station and the central market. I would recommend this tour to anyone because if you are going to be on a bus to get to Riga anyway, why not see more of the two countries? Our guide, Laura, was very knowledgeable and through in her own experiences of growing up in the Baltics and what it was like for her mother that it made everything seem more real.
It was great to get out of the big cities for a day and see some more of the countryside. Better than that was our super enthusiastic guide Laura, who made the day fun and informative. Totally recommended as a way to get between Vilnius and Riga and seeing the sights.
This day tour is excellent and all thanks to our guide, Laura. Laura was a bundle of energy, enthusastic, informative and so much fun to be with. She told us lots of history in an entertaining way. I was safely dropped off at my accommodation on time. I would recommend everyone to take this trip. Laura made it extra special for me - I couldn't have wished for a more wonderful guide - she is an asset to Traveller Tours!
My husband and I had a great day learning the secrets of Lithuanian history and visiting places we never knew existed. Our Guide Laura was fantastic, she was so energetic and told us a lot of fun stores about Lithuania and its past.
Fun day exploring places I had never heard of before. We had a great local food for lunch. Grutas Park was the most memorable place with the old Soviet monuments. The guide was very energetic and answered all our questions. I absolutely recommend taking this tour.
We enjoyed our day tour from Riga to Vilnius. Our guide was Laura and she is such a lovely and bubbly person. We were given alot of information at every stop.The stops were all interesting, We stopped for lunch at this amazing place. The food was good and reasonably priced, while the place itself is so beautiful.
Amazing tour with a lot of great sights and fascinating information. You see both nature and culture. Completely recommend.
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.
It was an enjoyable day because the guide was chatty and outgoing and the places we visited were very interesting. Perhaps the highlight was the bobsleigh run but he sandstone cliffs a close second. Laura was a wonderful guide and the day could not have gone better. She even sang to us. I would recommend her for the Eurovision Song Contest. Advice to other travellers. Book this tour but bring mosquito repellent!
This is a great idea and really fun. Laura was our tour guide and mini bus driver too ! We stopped off at a few places along the way ; my favourite was the restaurant which served amazing food ! I would definitely recommend this tour but please please please invest in a mobile phone holder for your driver so they can keep both hands on the wheel and not have to hold the phone whilst driving. Otherwise fantastic!
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.
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!
We had a smalle group which made the tour very fine. The guide (Laura) was there already early so we could leave on time. From the start she was very enthousiastic in her stories and she was always open for an informal conversation. Nice touristic stops and a good restaurant where we ate. It was a great advantage to hear the stories from a real Lithuanian which made the experience more purely. I would recommend this trip to everyone as the better alternative to travel between the two cities surely with such a good guide.
Our guide was excellent in every way. She was very knowledgeable, an excellent driver, and helped us feel at ease so that we could really enjoy our journey. A great day. Many thanks. Ervin
La tappe visitate erano interessanti. La guida, Laura, aveva una discreta conoscenza, le spiegazioni erano interessanti e facilmente ascoltabili anche non avendo una piena comprensione dell'inglese.
My friends and I were travelling from Riga to Vilnius so we decided to use the tour. It was definitely one of the best decisions we made. We managed to get to places that we wouldn't have gone on our own. Those were interesting places. Our guide, Laura, was fantastic! She was full of energy, caring and gave her best to the tour. She was a star! The tour was definitely worth the time and money !
We took this tour with the expectation that we would see more of Estonia and Latvia. With the exception of Cesis, what we saw was disapointing. Viljandi was underwhelming, sandstone cliffs were disappointing, and military museum was a waste of time. Segulda could have been great if we could have taken a bobsled down the ramp. We would have paid extra for this, but it was not an option. Cesis was very nice, but we were rushed through it. Laura was enthusiastic, but carried the rivalry with the other Baltic countries too far. We regret not taking a direct bus.
