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.

"The only way to travel!!!"

The guide was excellent and the places we visited gave more insight into this wonderful country as opposed to travelling by train (difficult to impossible) or bus (quicker but boring). The lunch stop was brilliant but the military musuem afterwards was not a highlight to be honest. I would suggest that a couple of the other stops are extended and this museum dropped from the itinerary. Apart from that great value great guide and great way to see more of the country.

"Great way to travel"

Really enjoyed the trip, thanks for a great day

"Review for tour company and tour guide Laura"

My sister and brother and I , we booked a private van with Traveller Tour Company from Tallinn to Riga, and then from Riga to Vilnius. We were very satisfied with the itineraries for both trips, each taking us to four interesting attractions along the way, and organizing a very pleasurable lunch. I would highly recommend this tour company because I found them to be very organized and professional. I would like to give special recognition and thanks to our tour guide, Laura, who made our trip more enjoyable due to her friendliness and energy, as well as her great knowledge regarding the history of the cities and the attractions.

"Van trip Trallinn to Riga"

Loved it. 4 of us drove from Tallinn to Riga with Ivar. He picked us up at our hotel in Tallinn. We made a stop at a historic town, for a lovely lunch on the border, a wonderful national park for a short hike through the woods and to see the sandstone cliffs, and at the bobsled track. Ivar was very interesting to talk with and gave us loads of information. It was a long day but we got to see some of the countryside of both countries which was exactly what we wanted.

"Best Sommer decision "

Dear Ones, I took the best decision for the route from the beautiful city of Tallinn to Riga. I am more than grateful to have had Ivar as a guide and driver, such a balanced, wise and good informed young man. In Viljandi you can make a 30 min round trip to the lake, take the bike path and come back to the van at the museum. Talk to the river in Gaujas. It’s going to be an interesting discussion. Order garlic bread! Enjoy the beauty of Cesis, amazingly well made place. Most of all, be present in the moment. Love and Grace, Arabela

"Absolutely amazing and highly recommend "
