About this tour
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 with its wooden houses, Soviet industrial landscapes and well-hidden retreats.
If you want to discover what Estonia is really about then join the Funky Bike Tour. The quiet backstreets of the 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.

What people say about Funky Bike Tour
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.

I did the Funky Bike tour and had such a good time that I did the Beautiful Bike tour... and then the Ghost tour... and the National Park day trip. All my guides were awesome, especially Silja, who is totally the best person ever.
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!
