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

"Fun, sociable and educational. We had a great day."

Krislin was a charming, relaxed and well informed guide. It was really nice meeting a small group of people from all over the world and spending some time with them in the context of interesting activities that sparked conversation. The stops on the tour were varied and the tour well structured and thought out. The restaurant we ate lunch in was outstanding.

"Really awesome!"

The tour was really great, we had an amazing day! The guide, Uku, knew so much about every place we stopped. He was telling us information in a way we could easily understand, and made some jokes. I liked the fact that it was only a little group. We had plenty of time at all the places we stopped. We were never rushed. The guide gave us enough time to enjoy the place, and to hear his stories. At one point, it was raining so hard, that Uku stopped at a gasstation to buy us some raincoats. We were lucky that it stopped raining at the next stop, but it was really nice of him. Lunch was good, and we had a great day. I would really recommend this tour! And Uku, thank you for the really great day!

"A tour guide who also travels "

Our tour guide was Andres and he was amazing. So great to have a tour guide that actually travels as well - and has lots of insights and empathy for those who are traveling. He was very amusing and made the history come alive. He also was a very safe driver... we had torrential rain on the way and at times visibility was very poor. He was very cautious and I never felt unsafe .

"Informative way to travel"

This tour was well worth it as it allowed us to travel between Tallinn & Riga and learn so much along the way. Our guide was do knowledgeable . Highly recommended.

"A marvellous trip into the green"

The overall trip from Tallinn to Riga was excellent. The mini bus was comfortable. Our guide Catherina was very kind, nice, helpful and tried to explain us whatever we saw. You can't do such a trip by yourself or with an ordinary touristic tour. We saw many interesting places. I called it a trip into the green because green is the color of nature in Estonia and Latvia and we saw every tone of green on the road, in national parc and in small towns we visited. Thanh you for this wonderful trip.

"Riga or bust!!!!!"

We had a great time on this trip. Carolus ( hope i’ve spelt it right) was a fun tour guide and a wealth of knowledge. Would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Tallinn. We had a mixed age group on our tour but everyone seemed to have as good a tome as us oldies😂
