The 2 hour Tallinn walking tour with Ariel was a highlight of a great day out. Her friendly manner was only matched by her historical knowledge. Informative and fun........thanks Ariel.
Dave Murray, Australia
Our tour was terrific. Our guide, Ariel, was very informative, but also very pleasant. I highly recommend the tour, even at a higher price.

Our walking tour of the Old Town on July 3rd with Henri as guide was wonderful. He made the town and its history really interesting and informative with a few chuckles thrown in. I recommend this tour wholeheartedly and if you get to have Henri as guide it's a bonus.

On July 14th 2016 we had the pleasure to enjoy Tallinn's Old Town tour led by joyful Mart. Half guide, half stand-up comedian, Mart showed us the best parts of the city centre while he nurtured our brains with both historical and cultural facts, loud and clear despite the fact that we were a sizeable bunch. Not trying to say that the other guides are not good, but look out for Mart when you visit Tallinn :)
Jess, Spain
Highly recommend the tallinn old city walking tour with Mart. We loved seeing the sights while laughing about the dry sense of humour of Estonians and the presidents shenanigans. Mart was very entertaining and had a good sense of humour! Well worth it!
Diana , Canada
We had a great 2 hour tour with Mart, who showed us the sights, but more importantly, provided a fascinating recount of Tallin history, politics, and dry sense of humor. Highly recommend!

We did a walking tour of Tallinn with Maria. She was very friendly, and knowledgable about the city giving us detailed explanations to our questions. Also, we booked the tour very last minute and she went out of her way to accommodate us which we really appreciated.
Bond, USA
I also participated the tour on 20th of June and must say that what an actor Estonia has missed in HELI. The tour was fantastic mix of laughter, acting, facts and figures. Thank you indeed.
Janne, Finland
Hi everyone, we had a tour with our guide HELI on the 20th of june 2016 and it was very nice. HELI is hugely entertaining, interacts with the audience in a great manner and passes on more information to you than you would believe is possible in one hour. Not just the years and numbers, but speckled with lots of anecdotes and light humour. Best tour I (we!) ever had! Wish she could be hired for Amsterdam...
Job, Netherlands
We went on a tour with Ariel today. What an amazing young lady! She gave us a fantastic history of Tallinn with some fun facts as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would recommend it to anyone wanting a comprehensive but not overwhelming tour of this wonderful city.
Danielle, Australia
We did the walking tour of Tallinn with Maria in June. She was extremely knowledgeable on the history and made the experience very interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Enjoyed a great tour of Tallinn Old Town with Henri on May 22. Very informative, good humor, friendly!
Ken Love, USA
Annile gave us a private walking tour while we were in Tallinn as part of a Baltic cruise. Annile was by far the best of the 5 different tour guides we used in different countries. She was perky, personable, and very friendly. She was knowledgeable but did not go into boring detail. She gave a lot of insight on Estonia live, politics, culture-- including difficulties with living close to Russia. I highly recommend Tallinn Traveller Tours and especially Annile

Our guide Maria is very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed our walking tour of Tallinn, it is a great introduction to the city / country and I recommend it. The map and traveller tips were a bonus. Thank you
Susan, UK
Henri was really enthusiastic and friendly. He made Tallinn come alive for us - highly recommend you seek him out.
Graham, USA
Touring with Henri in Tallinn is one of the best tours I've had, humorous, informative and relaxing!
Hilda, Hong Kong
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!
Barbara, USA
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.
Trevor, England
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!
Rachel, Australia
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!
Carolina, Aegentina
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.
Phil, USA (North Carolina)
We had walking tour of Tallinn lead by Henri. He was enthusiastic and informative We loved Tallinn and Henri was an excellent guide.
Simon, UK
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
