Join our entertaining trip from Tallinn to Riga through the picturesque towns of Viljandi, Valga, Cēsis, and Sigulda. We’ll bring you to places you would not find on your own and help you discover two countries in one day.

Our knowledgeable local guides take a small group, maximum of 8 people, for a fun filled 12 h road trip from Tallinn to Riga (click here to book this tour the other way – from Riga to Tallinn). You will learn about the history of Estonia and Latvia and its people by visiting several places with our experienced guides. We’ll take you from small towns and medieval castle ruins to quirky local sights and through the beautiful countryside.

Get ready to roam not one but two medieval castles, Viljandi and Cēsis, and discover how they became to be ruined. Learn about the history of Estonia and Latvia in Valga the border town between the two countries. We’ll visit the Gauja National Park where you can hike by the picturesque sand cliffs in Sietiņiezis and take in the sights of the medieval Old Town in Cēsis. Before we reach Riga we’ll stop in Sigulda to climb up the only Bobsleigh Track in the Baltics.

In Valga we also stop for a lunch at a local restaurant. Kindly let our guides know if you have any special dietary needs that we should take in account. Location of the lunch is subject to availability and the meal is not included in the price of the tour.

Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"wonderful drive to Riga"

We had a private tour to Riga with one stop (per our request). Our driver was kind and patient, plus very knowledgeable about Estonia and the small city we visited, Parnu. He was informative and shared his stories in a very interesting manner. He was a careful and safe driver plus very polite and courteous.

"Really worth facility"

It was really useful facility. Today I was looking for similar tour bus In Romania but I am not getting. Now I rember how exactly it was useful trip with a happy person as guide.

"Easy going and stress free!"

This tour enabled us to visit places we otherwise couldn't. The guide adjusted the plans for us with the limited sunlight. The lunch stop was great, easy going and stress free trip!

"The best way to move between the Baltic cities "

The tour was super nice and informative, especially for me who didn’t stay long for the trip, that I got a chance to reach to different cities between Tallinn and Riga. The guide was really informative and caring about each member of the group. Definitely recommend to anyone who’s visiting and wanted to move between the capital!

"Fantastic way to see the countries"

We are a family of four, and we had a wonderful tour with our guide, Ivar. He was very knowledgeable and went at our pace. We took two of these city-to-city tours during our trip to the Baltics, and it was the perfect way to see outside the main cities into the "real" countries. I would 100% recommend.

"Great road trip!"

It was a great road trip and our guide the beautiful artistic Hanna did a great job despite the problems presented to her by the roadworks ongoing in front of our hotel. Vlidjani was beautiful , lunch was delicious Gauja with its forest and stream and sandstones was serene and quite magnificent and Celcis with its castle and tales was interesting with delicious pastries and tasty tea. Thanks Hanna for a great road trip!
