The Totally Badass Certified Tour Guide
Ann, one of the many Political Science students who have passed through the ranks of Tallinn Traveller Tours, is a living, breathing encyclopedia. Possessing a quirky sense of humour, she loves telling stories and dispensing sarcasm almost as much as she loves history and Tallinn.
When her parents asked who she wanted to be when she grows up, Ann simply said “famous!” And while that hasn't exactly happened yet, she is working hard on just being awesome instead (with modest success).
Ann would love to have a pet, but as her landlord is not so happy about that idea, she has spent the last two years growing three tiny tangerine trees. She would like to think she spends free time on hobbies like painting, taking photographs and reading, but she admits it is mostly spent on Game of Thrones.
Ann has a fascination with all things Soviet, she loves to take tourists to weird dilapidated and abandoned Soviet-era factories all over Tallinn. She does like the Old Town, too, mainly because of all of the weird things Medieval people used to believe in. On her tours, she always makes sure everyone finds something fascinating and rememberable for themselves in the capital of Estonia - be it merchant houses, Soviet-era KGB spying equipment, beautiful seaside or lovely parks.

Annile gave us a private walking tour while we were in Tallinn as part of a Baltic cruise. Annile was by far the best of the 5 different tour guides we used in different countries. She was perky, personable, and very friendly. She was knowledgeable but did not go into boring detail. She gave a lot of insight on Estonia live, politics, culture-- including difficulties with living close to Russia. I highly recommend Tallinn Traveller Tours and especially Annile
The walking tour was interesting, but Ann, our guide, made it fantastic.
Fantastic tour led by Ann. She was knowledgeable,funny and had a great voice, enabling us to actually hear her! Her English was excellent also. I think she is the best tour guide we have ever experienced. Wonderful city.
We opted for the 2 hour group walking tour of the old town, and would recommend this to anyone going to Tallinn. As it happened there were only the two of us, but our guide was so bubbly and interesting that it great fun. It really felt as though we were being shown around Tallinn by an old friend. The communication before the tour was great (we did it all by email) and was all very easy. Ann was our tour guide, and she gave us a lot of interesting information that I don't think we would have easily found out (plus it's so much easier being told than reading lots of guidebooks!!) as well as local knowledge - and she made us laugh so much! Thanks so much for a great morning!
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Ann (blonde hair) last week (August 12th). We had a 3 hour private tour. Ann showed us around both the historic district and parts of the new town. Ann was extremely knowledgeable and shared with us many historical and fun facts about Tallinn and Estonia. We were very impressed and we highly recommend Ann for a tour guide. Visiting Tallinn was a fantastic experience.
Awesome walking tour very fun and informative!;)
Ann gave us an amazing tour of the old Tallinn town. She was engaging and enjoyable, despite accommodating for close to 100 people. Definitely recommended.
A really great tour, all the things you don't see in the Old Town, an excellent guide, and the name "funky tour" sums it up perfectly!
Despite the fact that it rained, rained, rained our tour guide, Ana V. made experiencing Tallinn a fantastic experience. She is witty, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable. I loved hearing her quirky facts and real opinons and not being fed the tourist line of information. We learned so much about the history of Tallinn & Estonia. We came on a cruise ship and chose not to take the cruise tours because I know they did not experience Tallinn as my group did. Thanks Ana. You made the day wonderful and fun. Thanks for the tip on Tallinn Vana; its sinfully delicious. I highly recommend taking the Old Town walking tour ( July 2012)
Hello, Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time when we visited Tallinn. We took the Old Town Walking Tour and enjoyed it very much. Our tour guide Ann Vaida was well informed and had lots of good information to give us about the old city and present day Tallinn and Estonia. She was friendlly , outgoing and well informed. Our tour was a leisure one and we visited and saw all that we had planned to see and more in the short time we had in port. We really enjoyed ourselve touring and chatting with Ann. We will highly recommend this tour company to others. Thanks for making our time in Tallinn special. Edwin and Marilyn Udoji. July 10, 2012
We just returned from a trip to Tallinn. Ann gave our group a wonderful, memorable walking tour. Even though it was a rainy day, we hardly noticed, because of Ann's enthusiasm and energy!
A brilliant way to see the old town of Tallinn. Ann was an excellent guide, amusing, knowledgable and vivacious. I thoroughly recommend this free tour of the town run by local uni students!
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!
Had a great time with Ann on the Walking Tour and with Anne on the Bike Tour. Well done and thank you all for making my stay in Tallinn so good!
Thank you Ann - your talk + walk was great fun even in the rain!
Ann is the best tour guide in the world and a talented action photo jumper! :-) We enjoyed the tour very much and encourage everybody to do the tour as well! Thanks Ann and the team.
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!
We scheduled a combination walking and bike tour ahead of our cruise ship stop on July 3, 2011. We met up with Ann at the tent. Ann was a fantastic tour guide. Our group included our two kids (ages 11 and 14) and our sister and brother-in-law. There happened to be a music / singing festival also going on in Tallin that day. Ann was fun, enthusiastic, and very, very knowledgable. We went straight into the bike ride after the walking tour and I can tell you Ann is a fearless bicyclist. We went all over Tallin and had a great day. After the tour Ann came along with us to a restuarant she suggested called Grandmas. The lunch was very good and we would never have found it if Ann did not come along. Thanks for a great day!!!
Thank you for arranging for Ann to take us on the Russian walk. She was so informative, enthusiastic, and energetic. It was great fun to have an eighteen year old guide who was willing to take two seniors who needed to sit down to a great and funky place for something to drink.
