Henri was really enthusiastic and friendly. He made Tallinn come alive for us - highly recommend you seek him out.

I took a tour with Katrin, and had a fantastic time! Katrin was friendly and very engaging, and kept us fascinated with great stories and history. By far the best tour guide experience I have had while traveling in Europe!
Victoria, USA
Excellent tour with a great animated tour guide - Heli. Total walk is about 2 miles in 2 hours and the time went very quickly because Heli was captivating. Highly recommend!

Best day ever was in Tallinn during our two week cruise on the Baltic Sea. On August 25, 2015, our traveling group of 12 met with Mart for a two hour private tour. I can't say enough good things about him. He told us so many interesting historical facts about Estonia, added much humor to his presentation and was very accommodating to our needs. It truly was our favorite day of the trip. We all agreed Mart would make an excellent professor. He will be successful no matter what he chooses to do. Thank you Mart for making our visit to Tallinn so memorable!
Sandy Nordeen, USA
Excellent tour with mart coping really well with a truly global audience. The 2 hours disappeared in a flash full of interesting sights and entertaining narrative. Recommended for anyone especially with Mart to guide you and answer any questions.

An amazing tour of Tallinn with Tanya, tailored for our needs (a 7 year old with an avid interest in history but short legs!). Extremely friendly and pleasant tour guide, can't recommend her or the company enough!

Me gusto muchísimo el tour! Fue en ingles, pero se me hizo muy entretenido. Mart el guía me encanto! Una excelente opción para tener una visión sobre la historia y ubicarse en tallin!! Sorry, my review is in Spanish!

A fantastic tour with a superb guide, Mairi. You simply cannot go wrong with this "free" walking tour of a beautiful city. Mairi was amazing, and the ccity of Taillinn even better. St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Berlin --they have nothing on Taillinn.

We had walking tour of Tallinn lead by Henri. He was enthusiastic and informative We loved Tallinn and Henri was an excellent guide.

Wir hatten im Juni 2015 eine private Führung, in perfektem deutsch,durch die Altstadt vonTallinn. Es hat uns sehr viel Spass gemacht und die Zeit verging wie im Flug. Merily hat uns eine Einführung über die Geschichte Estlands gegeben und viele, nicht nur kulturelle, Informationen über die Stadt. Tallinn, mit einer private Führung in einer kleinen Gruppe zu erkunden, ist perfekt. Ein toller Tag, vielen Dank
Martina, Deutschland
Thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour led by Mart. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. Very interesting to listen to and one of the best walking tours we have been on in a while. Highly recommend :)
Sara, Canada
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.
Susan, Canada
We joined the very nice free walking tour with Katrin. Two hours of information, stories and tales about Tallinn, Estonia and Estonian people. It was a great tour with a fantastic guide! Tänan, Katrin!!!

Liine showed us around Tallinn Old Town on Dec 31st. She spoke excellent English with a wonderful sense of humour that made our experience particularly enjoyable. She was very knowledgeable and imparted just enough detail on buildings, history and events to give us the information without over-loading our heads with too much detail. However, when detail was requested Liine was always forthcoming. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip.
Ian, UK
Despite the shocking near-freezing rain, we had a very nice time with Katrin, who bravely guided us around the Old Town. Katrin is a very informative and considerate person and I would not hesitate in recommending her for any tour.
Tony, France
We had a very informative old town tour with a wonderful guide who met the six of us at the cruise dock on September 4th. She gave us time to stop whenever we wanted to take pictures and never rushed us. So much better than taking a bus tour with 40 extra people. Would recommend this tour highly.
Karin N, Canada
My wife, adult son and I did the Old Town walking tour with Mart in late August. a great our - interesting, moderate pace, acknowledged different perspectives about history and recent events. very willing to answer questions. Mart is a credit to his country. while no donation was demanded, we happily provided several Euros per person.
Bruce, Australia
Myself, husband and two children had such an interesting 2 hours with the lovely guide Merily. Tallinn is a really beautiful town with such a history and our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate whilst telling us all about it. We were only there for a day but could have stayed much longer and plan to go back soon. Can't recommend the Tallinn Old Town Walking Tour enough - great guide, a good lot of information given about the history and culture of Tallinn and Estonia, lovely surroundings, what more could you want? Thanks for making it such a great day for us!
Rebecca, England
We are from California and were in Tallinn with family (four adults and five kids) on August 11 and had the good fortune to have a private tour with Kathryn. She was well-informed, friendly and made a special effort to answer our questions. We highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Tallinn for a day or more. Thanks again Kathryn!

Took the Tallinn Old Town Walking Tour with our guide Aurelia. A great way to see this fantastic part of the city in a more intimate setting than the sometimes crowded free tours. Only 7 in our group which was great. Aurelia was a fantastic guide with a very outgoing personality. The 2 hours was just the right amount of time to get a good overview of the town and is also a great was to orientate yourself to continue exploring afterwards. Would definitely recommend this tour for those who enjoy a good walking tour.

On Monday 12th of May me and my classmates spent a very interesting and fun hour seeing Tallinn thanks to Tallinn Traveller Tours and their fabulous guide Aurelia. We had already had quite of a long day but because of the guide’s enthusiastic attitude, great vocabulary and intensive and confident way of speech we more than managed to stay awake. We actually enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. Aurelia had lots of interesting information to share with us and she was even able to make the learning experience entertaining with her accurate, informative but also humoristic stories about Tallinn’s history. Her spoken English was excellent and she seemed to be very enthusiastic about her topic which definitely came through to the whole audience and made it even more fascinating for us to listen to. We were lucky to have her as our tour guide. Would definitely recommend Tallinn Traveller Tours and Aurelia for everyone visiting the city.
Anna A, Finland
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.
Alan, USA
joined the old town walking tour on today. the guide, Hely, did a great job introducing this history of the monuments as well as Estonia. through her jokes and informations given as we walked the old town, I do learn a lot about this beautiful place.
NST, Singapore
Great tour from Mart. He explained the history brilliantly and really brought the many century-long struggles to life. Highly recommended.
Mark, Australia
Helli (hopefully I spelled it right) was our tour, and she was excellent! This was by far the best tour we had this two week vacation. She gave us a lot of insight into Estonia's history and culture. As soon as I got home watched at her recommendation 'A Singing Revolution' and 'Disco and Atomic War' (thank you). She was funny, very well informed and spoke excellent English. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.
Claudia, US
We took a walking tour of Tallinn in July 2013 with Silja as our guide and what a wonderful guide she turned out to be! Very knowledgeable, amusing and great fun to be with. The whole tour experience was well worth being part of. Definitely would take another tour when I next visit. Well done Silja!!
A wonderful experience -Sesilia our guide was not afraid to go into the details of Tallinn's post war history which complemented the descriptions of the places and buildings we saw. It was good to be treated as serious visitors not just tourists!
