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

"Great guide great trip "

Super way to get from Tallinn to Riga. Hanna Liia ,our driver and guide, was knowledgeable, attentive and great fun. Her English was impeccable. It’s a long day, but we got to see the country-side and some great sights. Highly recommended

"Sten was the best"

Easily the tour was the highlight of our tour of the Baltics. Sten was great, he must have answered over 100 questions about a wide range of questions and he patiently answered them all. I understand he is leaving the company soon and that is a big shame. I whole heatedly recommend this tour. The prior communication could do with a much needed overhaul, quite a bit could be improved in comparison to competitors.

"Perfect tour! Worth the money and convenience"

If you plan to travel from Tallinn to Riga, this is the right tour! You can visit many places within a day. You have enough time to take pictures and have lunch at the good restaurant. Our guide, 'Sten', has service-mind and very nice.

"Very varied itinery, and great guide."

Great guide kept the tour running smoothly. Unusual one way tour but a great way to get between Tallinn and Riga and see places tourists do not usually see across two countries. Highlights included Estonian castle at Viljandi - Latvian castle at Cesis - Estonian national type of standing swing at Viljandi - a hike along a river in the Latvian national park - a military museum in Valga - the national bobsleigh track at Sigulda. The guide Sten told us about the history of the two countries from the muddle ages as the tour progressed. Very informative way to travel berween Riga and Tallinn

"Excellent tour"

Excellent trip with kert Informational and the right pace Enjoyed chatting with him and learning about the history of the area He’s kind and courteous and will do his best to accommodate you Kerda tried her best to secure this trip for me in the ouf of season time so thx for doing that

"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.

Meeting Point

The tour starts in front of Tallinn Tourist Info Center (Niguliste street 2) on the corner of Harju and Niguliste street. Our guide will meet you at the marked meeting point.
