BACKPACKERS FAVOURITE BIKE TOUR IN TALLINN!
Beneath all the shining modernity and the medieval charm, Tallinn has another side.
You needn't look far beyond the Old Town's walls to discover a whole new Tallinn in Kalamaja area with its wooden houses, Soviet industrial landscapes, Russian flea-market, abandoned prison and many well-hidden retreats.
The quiet backstreets of the wooden Kalamaja district snake through a neighbourhood rich in history and top it all off you'll get to taste the life in what was once the most notorious prison in the country. Don't worry - it tastes quite nice.
Our young and entertaining guides take you to the places you wouldn't stumble across on your own and share personal stories about Estonia from the perspective of the local youth.
NB! All our regular tours are in ENGLISH. Private tours are available in different languages
Reviews - Funky Bike Tour to Kalamaja / Bike Tours
We had a great time on the Funky Bike Tour of Kalamaja. Our guide Maria was enthusiastic and friendly. She gave us so much information about Estonia, she patiently answered our plethora of questions, and she paced the tour so that it was interesting and active for us parents and our two teen daughters. Our kids loved it! Maria even brought us Estonian candy, sharing it at just the moment when we all needed a sugar hit! The biking was easy and the day, beautiful! We would highly recommend the tour and Maria as a guide!
We had an excellent Funky Bike Tour with lovely Katrin this morning and she was the perfect guide to show us parts of Talinn we wouldn't have discovered on our own. The railway station, remnants of Russian occupation, disused factories, the old prison and its chilling history and above all, the emerging public art. An amazing tour. Highly recommended.
Wonderfully informative and educational bike tour led by Kathrine. Highly recommend this tour.
Visiter Tallinn hors des sentiers battus , voilà ce que vous réserve ce superbe tour ...prison désaffectée, friche industriel de l'air soviétique, maison de pêcheur en bois superbement réhabilité ... Bref si vous fait un tour par Tallinn ... Ça vaut le détour !!! Sans oublier notre merveilleuse guide Katrin ....she was soo.... great , wonderfull
If you visit Tallinn ask for this guide... she share her expérience without limits ...
So just do it ... Enjoy
My boyfriend and I did the funky bike tour on September 7th. It was great. We were able to see the "real" Tallin. The guide shared personal stories about her family and gave us quite a bit of information on Tallin's history. Overall, we thought this was one of the highlights of our 12 day cruise. Highly recommend it!
Fabulous tour thanks from all of us at Natural Elements Vacations Rentals.

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!
The funky biketour was a fantastic experience! Friendly tourguide who explained everything what we wanted to know!
This stuff you can't read about in any guidebook.
Tanks to Epp.

Great trip with our Guide Epp who took us on an interesting trip around Tallinn. We learned many things about the society, the history and with a personal point of wiew. It was a Nice Way of discovered a different part of the town. It was 4 wonderful hours.
I went on the " funky bike Tour" with a guide called Epp. It truely was a nice ride around Tallinn, where we visited places that we wouldn't have discovered our selves. If you're going to Tallinn i would recommend you to try this. And ask for the guide "Epp" cause she was a wonderful guide. :)
My husband and I along with our 12 year old son took the Funky Bike Tour in Tallin with Celia as our guide. This was easily the most memorable event of our northern Europe/Russian holdiday. Celia was extremely knowledgable and very proud of her country's history and we learned a lot. Very interesting to get an Estonian view of the Soviet era. While we enjoyed the Old Towne, this was a great chance to travel an unbeaten path. We had hoped to find some other travelers on the tour and were lucky to find two great young men, Jack from Australia and Jun from Singapore. What a great opportunity for our son to Get a view of young people touring the world. Cannot say enough good things about our bike trip. Even the rainy weather did not put a damper on the day. Great tour, great people and a fantastic country. Can't wait to find an excuse to return. Be sure to make this tour a part of your visit!
Great to see parts of Tallinn the normal tourist would not see! Thanks Mart for the bar stop!
Went on both bike tours back to back and was well worth it with minimal overlap :D
Harry made our bike tour a fantastic experience. A great way to discover different parts of the city. To top it all we had great weather (did you guys organise that too for us) You all do a fantastic job at the info tent too and I am so glad we found you and booked the trip.
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!
Harry is a legend of a tour guide, and Hayley was brilliant on the walking tour. Looking forward to seeing you guys again in future. Keep doing what you're doing!
My friends and I only had one day to spend in Talinn and yet we saw so much thanks to the Funky Bike Tour! What a great way to get to know the city and its history away from the usual tourist stuff! Been on quite a few tours during the last couple of days; this one was by far the best. Harry, you rock!
My father gave me this tour for my birthday!!! Harry is a really nice guidewith a personal touch and you get to see a lot of the city that you wouldn’t get to see otherwise. I recommend this tour to anyone going to Tallinn.
This was very refreshing as a contrast to the official tour. This is needed in more cities around the world. Great initiative. Thanks.
We have been on the walking tour, on the funky bike tour and thoroughly enjoyed them both. We have learned much about Tallinn and Estonia’s rich history from great, interesting and very proud young ambassadors.
Great tour to the parts of Tallinn that the tourists don’t see. You guys are totally great.
