Initially, I was just going to take an express bus from Riga to Vilnius, but fortunately I stumbled online to this tour. It was fantastic! It was a great value. I had wanted to go to some of these sites and this was the most efficient and cost effective way of seeing them. Adam, our guide, was fantastic. This is definitely a must!
Anna was fantastic. There ended up only myself and another couple which was brilliant. We saw a wide range of sites and it made the travel fun and exciting. We were well taken care of. I also got to play my music the whole way and the lunch was lovely!
If you don’t have a car but you still want to see important spots from Riga to Vilnius this is your tour!
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!!
Lovely guide - very helpful and knowledgeable!
Laura was awesome and informative. The stops were well timed! Beautiful drive and we liked everything.
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!
Go with the flow
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.
The travel was good. Thank you Alex.
Kätlin was a great guide and driver. She told us about the history, geography and culture of Latvia and Estonia in a humorous way.
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
We had a great time travelling with our guide, we saw lots of different and fantastic places, Now we have more knowledge about the history of latvia and lithuania, thank you for all !
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.
An excellent way to travel between Riga and Vilnius. The stops were all the key must sees. I went to the Information Center in Vilnius looking for a day trip. All the recommended day trips were stops on the Riga - Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus. Our tour guide was energetic, informative and fun! I would highly recommend this tour.
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.
Lau was very engaging. He knew his stuff and we learnt a lot about Lithuania and Latvia. Can't praise him enough. Having local guides share their own insights makes these Tours wonderful. We had Anna for the previous one and she was also doing this trip with us in another vehicle. They both are amazing. They had their areas of specialty with one being Lithuanian and the other Latvian. The tours enabled us to see places we wouldn't have been able to see if we had just caught the regular bus. A two in one experience, getting from A to B and sightseeing too. I'll recommend you to anyone I know heading this way.
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.
An easy and fun way to get from A to B without missing everything in between. Guide was friendly, funny and a great storyteller - we learnt a lot about the history and culture of both Latvia and Lithuania.
I've done so many tours while traveling but so far this one [Riga-Valnius] was the best, mainly thanks to our wonderful, enthusiast and experienced guides, Anna & Laurynas. The two of them made a long day go by quickly and enjoyable. They took us to various memorable/historic places, explained at depth the significance of each place we stopped during the trip and more. I really enjoyed the day and I'm so glad I chose to do the tour instead of taking a bus to Vilnius as I had already planned. Thank you again, Anna & Laurynas, you guys rock!
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
The tour was well organised, the guide very friendly and helpfull. We had different nice stops (museum, nature, town, castle, bobslee)
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!
Our guide was Karolis who we also had on tour from Tallinn to Riga so knew we would be well looked after and he would be informative about history and culture. We set off promptly with five other travellers from other continents, besides myself and my partner. The others’ lives and backgrounds were very interesting to listen to which made the trip more enjoyable. We stopped at a memorial, then a palatial garden, the previous capital of Lithuania, the Hill of Crosses and finally Trakai Castle early evening. We walked around the exterior of the castle which we accessed crossing bridges as it is surrounded by water. Beautiful place which Karolis knew well. Lunch was at an equestrian centre where we saw horses being ridden. Food was preordered and good quality and reasonably priced. It was a lovely tour and would thoroughly recommend, great guide too.
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.
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.
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!
This is a great tour that takes travellers from Riga to Vilnius by way of all the top sights along the way. During our day with our guide, we learned so much about the history of each place - the Rundale Palace, Holocaust Memorial, historical Kaunas, Hill of Crosses and Trakai Castle. The blend of all the stops and sights was diverse and had something for everyone. By the time we arrived in Vilnius, we already felt acquainted with the country of Lithuania. Thanks for a really memorable day!
Very nice guide. Kept the tour always interesting. She has lots of patience. It is one of the trip we are going to remember for long time.
This whole day trip was the perfect way to get from Riga to Vilnius. Lau went above and beyond to make this trip as informative and pleasant as possible. We got to see many of the great spots on the way as well as try some authentic local treats/cuisine. Highly recommended for anyone who want to get from one city to the other and get to see everything in between. Thank you!
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.
Great time and a perfect way to see the sights along the way when traveling from Riga to Vilnius. Karolis was a fun and engaging guide and my fellow travelers were great too. All in all, so much better than just taking the scheduled bus between cities.
We had Anna and Laura as our guides as we joined two tours. Both are young, enthusiastic and passionate about their job and share more about their country with you, which makes the trip worth it. Laura even took us to our hotels as it was raining heavily in Vilnius.
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!
We liked this tour because it took us to hidden spots we never could have located on our own. Our guide Anna was so knowledgeable and could answer all our questions about Latvia, especially about history! We enjoyed the mix of contemporary culture, abandoned Soviet era buildings and the nature of the sea and the forest in the national parks. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to be surprised by many sights that are not too far from Riga!
Your driver/guide tried so hard to deal with passengers who SHOULD have taken the bus. ALL over 60 years. ALL convinced that they were entitled to ignore Lau’s expertise. SO kind of him to ignore their lack of world awareness. Lau knows (and APPRECIATES) Lithuanian history and culture. As he understands his role as a spokesperson for Baltic culture, maybe he can command “Silence” so that the rest of us can learn from his knowledge and LOVE of this beautiful country.
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!
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.
It was interesting to visit the different sights and hearing stories about how the places and history came about.
Definitely better than flying!
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!
Excellent small group tour which took us to places we didn’t know existed eg the Hill of Angels. Our guide Lau was terrific - Lau gave good, clear summaries of the history and made it fun to listen. Nothing was a problem for Lau - he arranged lunch (including special requests), changed his format to suit, and even found us in our hotel to return glasses we left on the bus after the tour was over - thankyou Lau!! We were apprehensive booking the tour from home before we left but found it to be very professional and on time. Highly recommend this tour as it’s an economical way to see many sights particularly if you have limited time in the area.
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.
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!
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.
Absolutely one of the highlights of my trip! Laura T and Kamile were very friendly and knowledgeable! Great experience!
Fantastic trip, with amazing stops and an even better guide. I've seen things I would have never seen in my life otherwise, and our guide was clearly knowledgeable and had a good spirit and sense of humor, which made everything worthwhile. I would say the price was just right for the trip. :)
A very smart and useful way to move from Riga to Tallinn. Many interesting places to visit: nature, culture, sport with a great guide!
The trip was amazing! Everything was well organised and you got a chance to go and explore at each location. The guide was great fun and really got to know each member of our group which made the journeys in between much more fun. He was extremely informative but kept things short and simple rather than drowning on. You got a real VIP feeling to every location we visited. The guide knew all the best spots for photos and even the best places to grab a coffee/snack. The locations along the tour are beautiful! You get a full sense of being off the beaten track, seeing things the normal travelers don't! Only negative is sometimes in the old towns you don't really get lots of time to really go and explore, but you are traveling a long distance and guide was very good at time keeping so you get a fair amount of time at each location. Overall, would one hundred present recommend this to anyone that wants to see the beautiful sites that not everyone will! That will leave you with amazing stories to tell!
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.
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.
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 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!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip between Latvia and Lithuania. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and engaging. The stops were fantastic (Trakai was so awesome we went back for a day trip!). If you are looking for a way to go from Latvia and Lithuania, this is a great option. The only negative on this trip was the size and condition of the mini-van. The van really only fits 7 people, and we had 8 in our group. Also, the van was not as clean as I would have expected.
What a great way to spend your day traveling from Riga to Vilnius. Our guide took us to fascinating spots and told us about the history and points of interest. A great day!
Alina was waiting with the bus even though we were early, a good sign we thought. The tour was well organised and we enjoyed the visits to different sites. Alina added to our enjoyment and understanding by recounting her family’s Lithuanian and Jewish history. Thoroughly recommended.
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.
This is the best Riga to Vilnius tour on the market. Great stopovers at all the major sights along the way and a friendly Lithuanian guide to answer all the questions you ever had (and more). Highly recommend this tour!
Anna was our guide. She told us about the history of Lithuania, showed us Kaunas, Trakai castle. She offered to take us direct to our accommodation in Vilnius which is much appreciated. In all, We enjoyed this day trip. We all recommend this tour to our friends. We offered her free coffee in return and tipped.
Great range of stops and sights. Informative and entertaining tour guide. Everything was magnificent . Best tour guide I've ever had.
Thank you Laurynas, our kind, genuine and most informative leader who guided us successfully from Riga to Vilnius over a 12 hour time frame which allowed stops in six really interesting places. We simply would not have been able to explore the sights independently in a short time frame so are very grateful to the company for a well organised and interesting itinerary which at 55 euros is quite affordable. I have a better appreciation of the struggles and challenges people have faced in the Baltic region and really admire young people like our guide sharing his love and loyalty of his home country. It gives us such hope that the world can be a better place.
Alex, our guide and driver extraordinaire was most knowledgeable and fun to be with.
Triin our guide was brilliant. Extremely knowledgable and very interesting and engaging. She also had a great sense of humour. This tour packs a lot into one day and the time flies by as you travel from one site to the next. It is also very good value for money when you look at day tours to just one site from Vilnius. I have already recommended the tour to others heading to Tallinn/ Riga/ Vilnius this year. Well done to this company, they’ve really got it right👍🏻
Vor allem wenn man ohne Auto unterwegs ist, ist diese Tour eine tolle Möglichkeit von Riga nach Vilnius zu kommen und dabei noch einiges von beiden Ländern zu sehen und etwas zur Geschichte zu hören. Die Stops sind nicht zu kurz oder zu lange und die 12 Stunden vergehen insgesamt wie im Flug. Würde die Tour daher umbedingt jedem empfehlen :-)
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!
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 .
Very fun and informative way to travel from Riga to Vilnius. Small groups, friendly fellow-travelers and very nice guide (Alex from Vilnius). We visited all the main sights between Riga and Vilnius, everything exceeded our expectation. Would recommend to everyone!
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.
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.
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.
I think this is the best way to tour around Baltic countries Our tour guide was Alex from Vilnius.
This is an excellent way to get from one Baltic city to another and see the sights as well. It was professionally run, well organised and visited interesting spots. The guide, Alex, was knowledgeable and had a lively outgoing personality. The restaurant where we stopped for lunch served up lovely food at a very reasonable price. Overall, really good value for money.
We totally enjoyed the trip, the places visited enroute are must see. The guide was friendly and amazing. We got a good insight about places enroute. Ps. The place that guide took us for lunch enroute was amazing.
(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.
👍👍👍😄😄😄 Triin, is an excellent guide, very lively and knowlegable, always ready to help and to tell us all we want to know about the 3 Baltic states. We also met Mikus who was jovial and helpful. We had a good time. Thank you very much.
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!
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!!!
The only way to get from Riga to Tallinn. Great tour guide. Thanks Liine.
My wife and I recently took a tour from Riga to Vilnius and enjoyed the experience. I liked the locations chosen for the tour, and the 6 hour ride was broken up nicely into manageable pieces, where a typical Riga to Vilnius trip might have been less pleasant. Our tour guide was quite new and could have been a bit more engaging during the driving portions of the trip, but I'm sure that will come with time.
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.
I was quite happy to have chosen this tour as I cannot drive in Europe. Our tour guides Laura and Triin were extremely friendly and made sure to have a dynamic environment in the van by continuously cracking some Baltic jokes . Laura is not only an excellent driver but an excellent singer as well, she sang us a beautiful lullaby. She was driving whole day and simultaneously explaining us the history about different places. So much energy ! Hope my review gets her a raise ;) You don't get to spend enough time on various places but you get enough time to get a feel and pics of these places. Obviously you can't spend too much time at one place on a day trip. The tour cost was reasonable in my humble opinion. Long story short, go ahead and book this trip. You won't regret it.
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.
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 excellent. Brilliant way to travel between cities Riga and Vilnius, stopping at key landmarks, castles and absorbing history en route with personal insights and experiences from guide. Fresh and enthusiastic like a good ‘road trip’ with someone else looking after directions and parking.
We were four travelers and Triin and became friends by the end. She was great in informing us of the different places we visited along with a great stop for lunch. We visited the Palace that the mini-series War & Peace was filmed, then my favorite, the Hill of Crosses. What a mind-boggling site of so many crosses in one place. The lunch stop was fantastic. Then the stop at the former capital of Lithuania and Triin was good in providing a quick summary of the history. I had a quick coffee and chocolates at the Chocolateria. Then the castle on the lake. I can’t remember all the names of the places but I do remember what I see and what I felt. Thanks to Triin for a wonderful road trip.
The trip was brilliant and our guide (Kätlin) was superb - fun, engaging knowledgable and with faultless English.
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.
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 !
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
It was a well planned and well executed trip
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!
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!
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.
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!
Just a great tour not to mention an informative and traveler-smart way to get between Riga and Vilnius. We saw so many things and just had a wonderful time. Kert was awesome!! It doesn‘t get better than a great tour with a great guide. We really recommend it!
I went with three other friends and we booked the Tallinn-Riga and the Riga-Vilnus tours with this company and it was incredible! 2 fantastic days with amazing and fun guides. If you are travelling through the Baltic states I cannot recommend this enough. It really gives you an insight into the three countries.
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.
We took the 12 hour trips between Tallinn and Riga and then between Riga and Vilnius. Both days were enjoyable and informative with excellent guides Olga and Triin. Whether stopping at historic castles, nature parks, monuments and museums, or even for lunch, our guides enthusiastically shared local folklore, personal stories, and knowledge of the Baltics. Seeing a little more of the Baltic countries outside of the capitals was a refreshing change as it is mostly gorgeous countryside with farms, forests, wildflowers, and storks! Don't look at any other tour operator because with Traveller Tours you've found the best!
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!
I booked two tours with this company, and was thrilled both times. My friend and I used the tours as our method of transportation between Baltic cities and to see some of the places that are a bit harder to reach on your own. It was shocking to me how cheap these tours were, but also how amazing! The first tour was from Tallinn to Riga. First of all, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. Some highlights were the town of Viljandi, Helme, and Gauja National Park. The second tour was from Riga to Vilnius. Our tour guides were amazing and very knowledgeable, willing to answer obscure questions and also fun as travel companions. This tour had even better highlights, specifically Rundāle Palace, lunch in the incredibly picturesque Audruvis, the Hill of Crosses, and Trakai. I cannot recommend this tour company enough, and will definitely use them on any return trips to the Baltics in the future!
We did the Tallinn-Riga and Riga-Vilnius tours and they were both fantastic. Long days but we visited lots of places that would have been difficult to get to on our own. The guides were friendly and very knowledgable and the atmosphere with such a small group (maximum 8 people) was great. Plenty of space in the back of the van for luggage. Would definitely book another tour with this company.
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.
In June I made three tours, Riga-Tallinn, Lahemaa National Park and Riga-Vilnius. I can recommend all three tours, they were really interesting and we saw a lot of things I didn´t read in a travelguide. Especially Riga-Vilnius was very interesting and we saw a lot interesting places. The staff is very helpful, Isabel answered all my mails very quickly. And Triin is an awesome tour guide. She told the history of Estonia very emotional with a very private character and she told us examples from her own family about the suffering time before Independence. The guides of the other tours were also good, but Triin was phenomenal.
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.
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!
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.
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...
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!
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.
I came holiday to Riga in April for 10 days and i decided to took 2 private excursions which were on Tuesday 21 st Jurmala & Hidden Wonders and Yesterday Saturday 25th Kuldiga & Latvian Countryside.Tour Leader of both Tours was Ance which wad kind ,helpful and explaining regarding the places all the time during the tours.The places were all beautiful and amazing !
I did the Kuldiga tour in Latvia with Ance. It was a great day trip, lots to see and do. Ance was fun and full of interesting facts and opinions. It was great to get an insight into the country, history, culture and its people from a local. Highlights included a walk across the widest waterfall in Europe, Venta, a visit to sand caves and eating at a local cafe.
This was a great tour and our tour guide was a hero. She answered any questions we had, and was very friendly. I don't usually leave reviews, but I couldn't help but share my great experience on this tour with this company. We heard about them in Tallinn and did the Free walking tour there as well and decided to see some Latvia also.
I took one of their first Riga tours to Jurmala. The guide was really fun and the tour was awesome. She took us to a huge beautiful sand dune next to a river and showed around in Jurmala. The old wooden houses are so romantic and the abandoned area of Jurmala called Kemeri had mysterious park. And the bog walk was amazing. Definitely do that tour if you get to Riga. Jurmala is quite close, but It is difficult to find these places on your own.
All our tour guides are young educated locals so the tours feel more like discovering with a local friend.
With us you'll explore the highlights, but also the less-discovered places around the Baltic countries.
We want everyone to get personal attention from the guide so we aim to keep our groups rather small.
