Kalev Founder & Strategy Mastermind

Having travelled through half of the world, Kalev always felt something was lacking wherever he went – help. And while he met many helpful people along the way, he was never really satisfied with the official side of things, often getting thrown into the jungle (literally) with a bad map because the tourist info people had better things to do (namely crosswords).

Once, while fighting off a vicious band of tigers in the mosquito filled badlands, Kalev promised he’d dedicate himself to setting up the perfect tour company, provided that he survives the onslaught of the wilderbeasts.

Luckily, survive he did. Today, when he’s not exploring the hidden sights of Estonia and putting together new routes for alternative tours, he can often be seen sunken into one of the beanie bags at the office. When you do see him, ask him for the secret to keeping his employees from mutinying (and how he managed to fight, and ultimately defeat those tigers).

"Thanks a lot for your effort"

Did the transfer tour from Riga to Tallinn with Kalev, that was very professional and informative! Going through the countryside of Latvia and Estonia opened up my travel route in Baltic countries and gave me a fuller picture beyond capital cities of Riga and Taliinn. (Sigulda and Viljandi are awesome ^_^) Because it was a public holiday in Estonia, Kalev tried very hard to contact museums and restaurants and drive extra miles for us to see as much as possible. And he answered our many many questions on anything large or small. Thanks a lot for your effort, Kalev!

"Wonderful day trip to beautiful Lahemaa"

Wonderful day trip to beautiful Lahemaa National Park with Kalev, a great and interesting tour guide who was ever helpful and friendly. Also, enjoyed an informative Old Town walking tour with our entertaining tour guide Heli! Would highly recommend both these tours! (:

Wonderful day trip to Lahemaa wth Kalev! My partner and I especially enjoyed the walks through the woods and crossing the bog ponds. Kalev was an exceptional guide!

"Very accommodating with a last-minute booking"

A friend and I were thrilled to be taken on one of the first full tours of Narva & the Eastern Bloc from Tallinn. We spent more than 12 hours covering incredible ground with a very wide variety of historical, political and natural sights. Our host was informative and enthusiastic and very accommodating with a last-minute booking. Even if you've got a small group of two or three people interested, it's well worth inquiring about a private tour any day of the week, beyond the standard Saturdays that they suggest.

"Keep up the good work"

Sorry its taken so long to write the review but things got back to normal very soon after we got back to England (Rush Rush) . This was our first visit to Estonia and to the wonderful capital ciy of Tallin. My wife(Rosie)and myself (Rob) were lucky enough to have what we considered to be a private tour as we were the only two people taking part with our very knowledgable tour guide (Kalev). who spoke in very good English, Our tour was on a cold cloudy day on November12th 2011 just after the football match against Ireland(sorry Kalev)and were taken by car for the full 7 hours around the Western Coast and Paldiski. Our guide kept us very well informed of the history and pointed out spots you would not normally see on any other tour.I think he was quite embarassed when we got to the lagoon/prison only to find the gates were shut and locked the only disapointment to a fantastic well planned tour. We will both recomend the tour to friends who might be going to Tallin in the future. Wondered if you still had the photographs you took of us to send on e-mail to show our friends of our day out. We gave you e-mail address on the day.. Many thanks again keep up the good work Rob& Rosie Hertfordshiere England

"A great day, personal and memorable experience"

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.
