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. Informative. Must do."

This was the perfect way to travel from Tallinn to Riga. This trip allowed us to visit a wide range of interesting places; which would otherwise be missed. Our tour guide Mike was AMAZING! Knowledgeable - with lots of historical information and folk facts, fun, approachable and a great singing voice! He even accommodated our request to visit the swing on the Estonian/Latvian border and car karaoke! His stories about folklore and references to his own experiences were very valuable. Definitely a worthwhile trip! Thank you Mike!

"Incredible Experience Between Tallin and Riga"

A wonderful day between Tallin and Riga...where we got to understand Estonia and Latvia's history and culture. Thank you so much Traveller Tours

"Best Way to get from Tallinn to Riga"

We had such a great time on our tour! This was honestly one of the most fun travel days I’ve ever had. Mike was an excellent and knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humor (and a lovely singing voice to boot.) Our group of 4 strangers became fast friends and he put up with all of our antics including spontaneous car karaoke. Why watch the country fly by on a regular bus when you can take a full day road trip instead and see so many amazing sights along the way with a fantastic local guide? Can’t recommend this tour enough.

"Best way to get from Tallinn to Riga"

Mike is incredibly knowledgeable about both Estonia and Latvia. His passion for the culture and folklore is palpable, and makes for a wonderful day. You get to see some hidden gems in both countries that you'd probably otherwise miss. I'm so glad I chose this tour.

"Fantastic tour. By far the best option for Tallinn-Riga travel."

A superb and our guide (Mike) was excellent. We had to move from Taliinn to Riga and instead of flying or traveling by a coach we decided to use this tour and what a tour it was. We visited places other tourists won't see and we found so much about history of the region. Our guide (Mike) was fantastic, the minibus very comfortable. Strongly recommended.

"Enjoyable Day"

This tour took 12 hours, so it was a long day, but worth it since we were able to experience the Estonian and Latvian countryside while also learning about the history of the area. Mike, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable, and even sang us some folk songs. I would recommend this tour! Great way to get from one city to another when trains are not convenient.

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.
