Well, You do have lots of questions lined up :-)

I guess it takes maximum 3 days to look around and see all places of interest.
Saaremaa is approx. 4 hours by car or bus, including the ferrytrip.
Pärnu is tiny town, but absolutely lovey atmosphere in summertime. 2 days is quite enough if you just wanna look around. Spare some time for beach (if it's season). from Pärnu to Valga is.. maybe 3 hors drive? Not sure.

I can't tell much about Latvia except Riga is lovely. Sure there is plenty to see.

Best way travelling is probably rental car or bus. Valga is nothing special, but if you go there for just crossing to Latvia, it's ok.

Tartu is lovely, but better stay longer in Saaremaa and Pärnu :-)

You should spend no more than 3 days in each city. In Saaremaa one day for Kuressaare, one day for round trip to Sõrve and one for driving to Northern shore and Panga Pank.

Estonia is a 4 hour country - it takes no more than 4 hours to get from one end to another, so
From Tallinn to Saaremaa it's 4 hours.
Tallinn-Pärnu 1,5 hours
Tallinn-Võru 3,5 hours
Pärnu - Valga appr. 2,5 hours (I think)

When are you planning Your trip?
