What people say about Margus Ülper:
I've visited Tallinn alomost once a year since 2001 but the girls in the tent convinced me to take the free walking tour. I take the tour on Monday the 23.th of July and Margus was our guide. He made the tour very interesting with a good balance between history and today's situation. Thank you, Margus. And, I think, you got a good understanding of art (Statue on Freedom Square) ;-)
These people are locals who are genuine interesed in showing their city, especially the daily life, to the tourists.
My advice is go on their tours, ask them questions, follow their advice(s), You will not regret it.
All the best to you at Tallinn Traveller Tours. :-)
We had a very professional, good and very funny guide Markus (cant remember exactly) who let us in a journey from iceage to future and that made the day fot me and my girlfriend! Thank you Markus from gustav adolf II school :) Hope that you will invent something that people in Estonia can say "this is our Nokia." :-D
Our group of 5 did a bike tour led by guide Margus Ülper. Margus is a University student and very well informed on Estonia's history and current culture.
He led us on a most interesting tour that included the Palace and Song Festival Grounds among other great sights.
We enjoyed his commentary on the history of Estonia and how the places we visited related to the present day. Estonia is a young, dynamic country, and Margus' pride in his nation was evident in our discussions.
The bike tour was a highlight of our cruise through the Baltics.
Margus was very patient with the varying cycling ability of the members of our group (THANKS). We had adults and kids, and he was understanding when our energy level got a little bit low.
The one recommendation I would offer to others is to grab some refreshments/snacks before starting off. Our route didn't pass a refreshment stand or convenience store.
I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Tallinn from a different perspective. You'll be fortunate if you wind up with Margus as your guide.
