Join us for a beautiful day down the Western coast of Estonia to the lovely city of Haapsalu. Explore with us the Estonian countryside that is home to towering pine forests, picturesque coastline, and mysterious castle ruins. Discover with us stories and places you would never stumble across on your own.

It’s hard to find an area of Estonia that is any more relaxed and easy-going than the Western coast. Fall in love with the local countryside by taking a moment to relax by the seaside and by admiring the lonely farm houses. Learn about the Coastal-Swedes in Noarootsi and about Estonia's medieval history at Padise monastery ruins.

Discover Haapsalu, probably the most romantic city in Estonia. We’ll visit the medieval castle ruins in the middle of the city, walk between unique wooden villas and down the picturesque seaside promenade. Before leaving behind the city we’ll visit the local train museum at a beautiful wooden train station. Haapsalu might be a small town but it has much to offer, don’t miss out on any of it.

In Haapsalu we also stop for a lunch at a local restaurant or cafe. 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.

"Western coast & Haapsalu"

Thank you Marju. Because of your passion we have learned so much of the history of your country. It was an excellent day in your company.

"Heavenly Haapsalu"

The tour was lovely, and a good chance to explore a different part of the country, than just Tallinn, or the cities. After some uncertainty as to if the tour would go ahead at the time of booking, the small group was a good size. There were 4 of us in the van, so it was easy to hear information, and be able to ask questions. Marju, our guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the country and history. She was warm and engaging, and interested in the stories of the group members as well. Highly recommended.

"Haapsalu and West Coast Tour"

I took the Haapsalu and West Coast Tour a few days ago and have only words of gratitude toward this company and especially to Marju who was very friendly and professional. She took the time to show and explain us about anything from history to biology. She patiently answered all of our questions and took us to this great caffé in Haapsalu, so we could try the simple but tasteful Estonian country cusine. Totally recommendable if your interested in history, politics, architecture and bird-watching or simply walking along the seaside. Tänan, Marju!

"First-rate tour company!"

I don't recall how my daughter found Traveller Tours when we were planning a trip to Estonia; but I'm glad she did. By us, small-group tours with local guides win hands-down over both large, cookie-cutter "highlight" tours done in lockstep with others, and the DIY approach with its inevitable false starts, lost time, and missed possibilities. We did two TT tours while in Estonia: one to Viljandi and the university town of Tartu, the other to the resort area around Haapsalu. Our respective guides, Kert and Marju, were graduate students fluent in English with an excellent grasp of both Estonian and European history and a good handle on the particulars of each site we visited. On the Viljandi/Tartu trip, we three had Kert to ourselves. So it effectively was a private tour at a group-tour price. On the Haapsalu trip, we had a congenial group of eight plus Marju. In both cases, we had plenty of time to talk and ask questions along the way; and we learned a great deal. Should we have a second opportunity to visit Estonia, we would happily go on more Traveller Tours. Thanks, Kert and Marju and colleagues, for doing such a great job!

"Day trip to †Haapsalu‡"

We visit Tallinn every year in February and booked a private tour to Haapsalu (our flights were on dates of regular tour) and it really was an excellent day out, well worth the extra cost. Kert, our guide, was great - we chatted about all sorts of aspects of Estonian life, and he was so knowledgable about the interesting places we visited - and got as excited as we did when we drove across the ice-road on the Baltic!! Communication before our trip was excellent and we were so pleased we did it. Definitely will be booking another tour to another part of this beautiful and fascinating country when we come back next year. Thank you so much for a great day out.

"Lahemaa National Park tour and Western Coast & †Haapsalu‡ tours"

We did two tours - first one to Lahemaa National Park. Firstly I must say that our tour guide - Jaan (aka. John) was amazing - really smart and friendly guy who knew a lot about the history of Estonia and all the places that we visited with him. He was so genuine and it was so pleasant to listen or talk to him because he really was interested in sharing the information with us. Also, he was super-funny! :) The tour itself was very informative and fun. All the places that we visited were really interesting and cool, especially the submarine base and the bog. :) Would definitely recommend it to everybody! The second tour was to western coast and town called Haapsalu. This time we had an awesome tour guide again - Kert. He was also very knowledgeable and happy to share it with us. Unfortunately it was quite rainy that day, so it was not the best time to visit the coast and seaside, but we did enjoy it quite a bit. Just driving around on the tiny forest roads in the middle of nowhere was already pretty cool. Luckily the rain stopped in Haapsalu, so we got to see the town and promenade. Kert also took us for lunch in a very authentic and rustic estonian restaurant which was great! All in all - both of the trips were really cool, thank you! :)
