What people say about Tallinn Traveller Tour
I took their first day trip to Riga and I'm so glad I chose that option instead of the normal 5 hour bus. The Estonian and Latvian countryside is so beautiful and I would have missed it all, since this trip follows an alternative road to Riga. Thank you so-so much Tallinn Traveller and Mart for the great day. Definitely recommended!
What an amazing company, with amazing tour guides! I was lucky enough to experience a personal tour, during the winter season with three guides, as they were creating a new tour to bring in for the summer season. Spent the day exploring several hidden spots of Estonia. Highlights included the Padise monastery, Haapsalu & Ungru Castle. Each guide was full of interesting information about each place we visited and definitely have a real love for Estonia. I couldn't have asked for a better experience as a lone traveller. Thanks guys!!
This was a great tour and our tour guide was a hero. She answered any questions we had, and was very friendly. I don't usually leave reviews, but I couldn't help but share my great experience on this tour with this company. We heard about them in Tallinn and did the Free walking tour there as well and decided to see some Latvia also.
I took one of their first Riga tours to Jurmala. The guide was really fun and the tour was awesome. She took us to a huge beautiful sand dune next to a river and showed around in Jurmala. The old wooden houses are so romantic and the abandoned area of Jurmala called Kemeri had mysterious park. And the bog walk was amazing. Definitely do that tour if you get to Riga. Jurmala is quite close, but It is difficult to find these places on your own.
A wonderful experience -Sesilia our guide was not afraid to go into the details of Tallinn's post war history which complemented the descriptions of the places and buildings we saw. It was good to be treated as serious visitors not just tourists!
I took the free walking tour alone and it was great, very informative and the guide Silja made it very easy to chat to the others on the tour about Tallinn history. Definitely a good place to start to get a grip of the city.
Tallinn surprised us: First of all because we did not expect such a wonderfull city and furthermore because we never had such a great guide before. Heli: We absolutely thank you for the best tour ever and a great time in a great city! We highly recommend this tour to everybody visiting Talinn and surely will come back to see some more and sing and dance along with the Estonians!
We arranged this excursion on the Internet as an 'off ship' excursion on 14 May 2013. It was excellent on every level, highly professional, personal attention from a very pleasant young man with stacks of knowledge. We would highly recommend this company to anyone and will not hesitate to book with them again particularly as it represents very good value for money apart from anything else.
Just spent a week in Tallin, in March, went on the ghost and walking tours and Paldiski and Lahemaa. All the tours were brilliant taking us to places we would have never been able to get to on our own and all through a snow covered countryside! All the guides spoke fluent English and were very knowledgeable about the local area. The office staff were also brilliant arranging a cheap ferry to Helsinki and a tour of Pateri Prison. Not just for students either as me and my husband were travelling with my 80 year old Dad!
When we first saw advertising posters of tours offered to Lahemaa national park, we didn't even think about doing one. After a few days we had to admit that it is quite difficult, if not impossible, to get to Lahemaa national park without a private vehicle. So we decided to do this trip.
Mart was our guide and showed up in a very good mood in the morning to pick us up. He was very friendly the whole day, brought us to beautiful places and told us a lot about Estonia. We felt like having a local friend showing us the best places of Lahemaa. Without him we could never have found all the places.
One of the highlights was the Kasmu Maritime Museum, run by an Estonian family who served us an amazing lunch and guided us through the museum. Also scenic walks and spectacular nature views we had - all that accompanied in a group of 4 persons, very flexible and individual.
Thank you Mart for this amazing trip!!
Our private "Ghost Tour" was great! Karoli Loo was our guide and we must say she is very friendly and informative. Great time chatting with her and getting to know Estonia better. The ghost tour was spooky and exciting with us walking in the dark night and all the back alleys. Nice to know more behind all these ghost stories~~~ =)
I want to give a big shout out to the wonderful people who staff Tallinn Traveller. I'd been having difficulties trying to contact a credit card company, and they were able to help me out. All they wanted in return was reimbursement for the Skype charge. Are you kidding me? So lovely and helpful, which was exactly the opposite of the 'official' tourist info office. THANKS, Tallinn Traveller!!!
Ann was a very nice tourguide with a good vibe that provided us with the information you need to have an enjoyable stay in tallinn! She did not only talk but also actively dial with us when we had questions or remarks. Thanks a lot for this!
This was my 8th visit to Tallinn and although I don’t usually go on organised trips we came across Tallinn Traveller Info by chance and signed up for the Paldiski tour. What a great day we had and our tour guide Kalev, I have to say, went the extra mile to make our experience a more personal and memorable one. I’m planning my next visit Tallinn in the spring of 2012 and hope to go on the Lahemaa National Park trip.
We made an amazing daytrip to the Western coast.
Kalev, our guide (and owner of the company), drove us around the whole day. He was willing to answer all our (stupid) questions and told us everything we wanted to know about Estonia en the sights we were visiting. Kalev was a really fun guy to go with and he made our daytrip a very relaxing day out!
Fantastic tour - from the friendly and helpful service in the office to our guide, Mart., and all that we saw. The small group, felxibility in the itinerary, the excellent driving and great knowledge of our guide, - one of the best tours I've taken anywhere, and such good value. Definitely a "must do" when in Tallinn.
Lahemaa National Park day tour - wow best tour ever and I have done many all over the world - the trip was a day I will never forget from the wonderful company to the amaing sites things I will truly never forget it was not just a trip it made memories - priceless, thank you, IF YOU HAVE A CHANCE DO THE TRIP you will never forget it or regret it
This was such a great tour, definitely value for money. We were a group of six of ages ranging from 30s to 60s and all thoroughly enjoyed visiting Lahemaa National Park with our guide, Kalev. He was so friendly and didn't mind our constant questions about life in Estonia etc and also did a detour on the way as we wanted to see Jagala waterfall. Brilliant day.
We just finished a 16 day trip that we're affectionately calling our "Medieval Tour" because we visited 11 European cities that had Old City Centers dating back to the 13th Century.
Tallin was our last city tour (a total of 9 across 16 days) and Ann did an outstanding job. She kept us engaged, paced the tour so that my 77 & 78 y/o parents could keep up, and shared some fascinating (and mostly unpublished) pieces of information on her city.
Highly recommend her and the Old Town walking tour group!
Fantastic tour. Enjoyed every moment. Kalev was great, really friendly and showed us so many fantastic places round the Lahemaa National Park in a day. One of the best tours I've done. The best way to see places outside the city if you can. Highly recommended and well worth every euro!!!
We came to Tallinn on a weekend trip from Helsinki, and did both the Lahemaa and Funky Bike Tours. The Tallinn Traveller team looked after us really well the whole time - we couldn't have planned a better time ourselves. Expect to laugh, learn and be pushed out of your everyday travel comfort zone.
Easily one of the best tours I've been on. Spent a full day with Kalev roaming the Lahemaa National Park and seeing a side to Estonia that you just don't get in the city. Our guide was friendly, relaxed and always up for a chat. Almost felt like we were spending the day with a good friend. If you're in Estonia for a few days, don't leave without taking this tour.
Holy moly! I had a great time on the Funky Bike Tour! The group was small, and I got to see things I would have never discovered otherwise. All of this along with an anecdotal history of cowboy capitalism. Everyone at Tallinn Traveller made my trip to Estonia one I will never forget, I cannot recommend them enough!
We enjoyed the free tour, our guide didn´t save his own opinions, wich was good to notice - you feel you get the real story instead of the tourist-stuff, an absolute must if you visit Tallinn!
The pubcrawl was great, we had a good time, met new people, and found out a lot about Tallinn´s nightlife, we´ll be back in Tallinn, and we will be sure to hit the pubcrawl again!
The Beautiful Bike Tour was the highlight of my stay in Tallinn! The guide was very friendly and I enjoyed it so much I went out on the Funky Bike Tour the next day!! If you do one thing while in Tallinn, go on these bike tours!!!
Best city tour ever, anywhere on the world! 2 hours over lunch time in the heat and not 1 second bored! thanks a lot for the many ghost stories!
Have been to the Pub Crawl at least five times – the best and easiest way to meet new and cool people from all over the world.
This may have been the best travel dollars I have ever spent. Heli was superb and made wonderful Tallinn even better with her knowledge, fun personality, obscure facts and entertaining ways.
One of the best city tours I have ever taken and I have visited more than 40 countries.
