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.
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.
