Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"Excellent way to see more of Estonia and Latvia - with added singing!"

We had an excellent time on this tour. The stops are well thought out and give you enough time to understand some of the history and cultural background of the two countries. The guide Mikelis was brilliant and kept up his energy and enthusiasm throughout the whole day, with added Latvian folk songs! Would definitely recommend this tour.

"Awesome guide "

"Perfect tour guide"

We joined the tour led by Liine on 6 Feb. She is so knowledgeable about the history of Estonia as well as many different jokes. We did enjoy and laugh very much! We went to Gadja National Park and saw the transquil and gorgeous scenic view of the Gadja River. We have been talking between ourselves that we were lucky and are so glad that we had made our trip through

"A Wonderful Winter Tour from Tallinn to Riga"

I am glad that the tour size is small – 8 passengers. Everyone is seated comfortably in the vehicle. Andres, our driver cum guide, manages the timing well. The tour is in December and shorter day light hour in winter. Sights visitation is conducted in a good pace. We had some time to enjoy at each sights. Our tour starts around 9am. Enroute we visited Viljandi castle ruins, Teemapark Museum, Cesis, Sigulda and finally arrived Riga around 7.30pm. The best is when Andres told us we do have time to visit Sigulda bobsleigh and luge track. We are overjoyed. As we have never seen a bobsleigh before. Overall it is a well conducted tour. I really enjoyed the tour even though it is long hours of travelling. I think it is a great way to travel from Tallinn to Riga with breaks in between for sightseeing. Thanks Andres for a wonderful winter sightseeing experience from Malaysian group of four.
