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

"Good way to save time"

The stops were actually quite boring but I cant blame the tour operator for that. I think however that the visit to the military museum can be replaced with something else. There wasnt much to see and most of it wasnt even in english. Something else to be improved is that the guide should bring us to a good photo stop or viewpoint and allow the group 5 to 10 min to take photos (which he rarely did. Good phototaking spots and viewpoints are also never pointed out). There is no point in just walking from the van to the sight and back again on stop. Those who were taking photos had to play catch up and walk quickly to rejoin the group.

"Awesome!"

Tour guide was awesome, very knowledgeable and helpful. I'd recommend going in fall as the leaves are absolutely beautiful! Loved the tour

"On the road from Tallinn to Riga"

Uku was an informative and engaging guide. We learnt much about the places we visited and also about the history of and issues facing Estonia and Latvia today.

"Very interesting way to get the know Estonia and Latvia"

Our guide was super fun and interesting. He presented Estonian and Latvian history in really interesting ways and he shared with us many fun facts. It is great that the group can’t have more than 8 participants, this way we were always on time, didn’t get lost or anything. Although the weather wasn’t the best (gray sky and drizzle - but what can you expect in October?), we managed to visit all the places and the gray weather didn’t ruin the impression. Amazing tour, and would like to do more of them between other cities.

"What a way to travel. "

So much more enjoyable than sitting in a bus or train and watching the sights go by without stopping. We had an awesome time traveling from Tallinn to Riga. Each stop was the perfect amount of time to get out and stretch our legs, see some awesome sights, and learn more about Estonia and Latvia. Food was great at lunch and Anna was an amazing guide!

"Awesome day"

Definitely the best tour I have ever made. Excellent places mixed with a great insight of history and stories from a local point of view. A great way to travel from one city to the other.

Meeting Point

Day trips depart from the Tallinn Tourist Info Center (Niguliste street 2) on the corner of Harju and Niguliste street.
