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.

"Totally Awesome!!!"

I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to have a great time! Mikelus is absolutely fabulous! Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy going. He is also a very talented singer. We visited castle remnants, a national forest, had a great lunch at a wonderful local restaurant. I would give this tour 10 stars if I could.

"Awsome Tour! Best way to travel between Riga and Tallinn!"

This tour was amazing, one of the best ones I have been on and I can recommend it to anyone who needs to get from one city to another. The stops are very interesting, the tour guide was very nice and motivated and our group (we were 6 people) was cool too. You get to know interesting people while sightseeing and traveling from A to B. Water is included as well.

"A fantastic trip from Tallinn to Riga!"

We had a fantastic time during this trip from Tallinn to Riga. The guide, Mikelis, was super fun and also a true professionist. He knew very well everything about the places he showed us. He made us feel very comfortable. Anyone who has to travel from Tallinn to Riga (or viceversa) should go on this trip, instead of taking a normal bus trip, because it's really worth the time spent and the money.
