Reviews - Tallinn Old Town Walking Tour / Walking Tours

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.

Great tour from Mart. He explained the history brilliantly and really brought the many century-long struggles to life. Highly recommended.

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.

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!!

The free walking tour with Helen on July 19th 2013 was the best ever tour guide ever ;) She made the story of Estonia and Tallinn very easy to understand and so much fun. Thank you this I will recommend to all my friend to come visit Estonia !!!

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!
Mike, U K
Ann gave us an amazing tour of the old Tallinn town. She was engaging and enjoyable, despite accommodating for close to 100 people. Definitely recommended.

One of the best tours we have ever done! Thank you for the excellent two hour walking tour you provided during our recent trip to Tallinn. (Unfortunately we cannot remember the name of the guide, but she said her first word in English was “sandwich” from watching Scooby-doo cartoons!) The tour incorporated the old town and we were provided with a range of informative comment on what we were looking at; this included the historical significance of buildings and places, lighter stories about events in the city’s past and personal anecdotes. We had many opportunities for taking great photographs and when it ended we had sufficient understanding of the city layout to enable us to see the few remaining things recommended in the tourist map. Without doubt this tour gave us the best possible impression of Tallinn and we will recommend both the city and this particular walking tour to friends and colleagues.

Did the Old Town Walking tour with Helen Savason on Aug. 14th 2012. It was great, very informative and fun! Definitely check it out while in Tallinn. I will absolutely try other tours next time I'm in town.

Durante la nostra permanenza a Tallinn abbiamo avuto il piacere di effettuare il tour della città vecchia, in linqua italiana, accompagnati da Kristina. Abbiamo potuto apprezzare la sua competenza e la passione verso il proprio Paese e la città di Tallinn, riuscendo anche a trasmtterla a noi. Preziosi i suoi consigli su lughi e locali da visitare, che ci hanno condotto in una città forse meno turistica, ma comunque affascinante. Grazie Kristina.

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. :-)

Despite the fact that it rained, rained, rained our tour guide, Ana V. made experiencing Tallinn a fantastic experience. She is witty, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable. I loved hearing her quirky facts and real opinons and not being fed the tourist line of information. We learned so much about the history of Tallinn & Estonia. We came on a cruise ship and chose not to take the cruise tours because I know they did not experience Tallinn as my group did. Thanks Ana. You made the day wonderful and fun. Thanks for the tip on Tallinn Vana; its sinfully delicious. I highly recommend taking the Old Town walking tour ( July 2012)

Hello, Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time when we visited Tallinn. We took the Old Town Walking Tour and enjoyed it very much. Our tour guide Ann Vaida was well informed and had lots of good information to give us about the old city and present day Tallinn and Estonia. She was friendlly , outgoing and well informed. Our tour was a leisure one and we visited and saw all that we had planned to see and more in the short time we had in port. We really enjoyed ourselve touring and chatting with Ann. We will highly recommend this tour company to others. Thanks for making our time in Tallinn special. Edwin and Marilyn Udoji. July 10, 2012

We spent a wonderful 2 hours on a private tour with Silja on 22 June 2012. Silja was an excellent tour guide! Silja's English was impeccable and her knowledge of Talinn was top rate! If it is possible, ask for a private tour with Silja. You will get insight of this beautiful city from a young native with great historical knowledge.

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

We just returned from a trip to Tallinn. Ann gave our group a wonderful, memorable walking tour. Even though it was a rainy day, we hardly noticed, because of Ann's enthusiasm and energy!
Bill, USA
A brilliant way to see the old town of Tallinn. Ann was an excellent guide, amusing, knowledgable and vivacious. I thoroughly recommend this free tour of the town run by local uni students!

An excellent and informative 2 hour stroll around the old town with our guide Anne whose ability to be humourous in a foreign language was outstanding - and all at no charge too!!

Specially selected your agency for non-standard approach to conducting tours and no mistake! Two hours in the cold passed very quickly: many new, interesting facts and no dull information at all. Want to thank the guide Anastasia for interesting excursion in extreme conditions! We never got bored. Anastasia clearly loves her city and her work: all from the heart, and with a smile. Thank you!

Ann was a very nice tourguide with a good vibe that provided us with the information you need to have an enjoyable stay in tallinn! She did not only talk but also actively dial with us when we had questions or remarks. Thanks a lot for this!
Paolo, Switzerland
Simply just the best way to explore the city. Even after a few days in the city, the walking tour just made the city even better, aware of the hidden gems... Great work!!!
Victor, the Netherlands
I went on the Old Town Walking Tour two weeks ago, on September 4th, 2011. My guide was Triina, and she was absolutely great. Along with being very informative, she was very friendly and eagerly answered my questions about Tallinn. I gained more insight and perspective on Tallinn from Triina's experience of growing up in Tallinn, and her experiences living in Tallinn right now. And best of all she was very easygoing, open and friendly. The tour was like having a friend show me around the Old Town. A very memorable experience for me. Once again well done Triina! :-)
Ernesto Daniel, USA
Just returned from a baltic cruise and one of the highlights was definitely the day we spent in Tallinn, much of that due to our excellent tour guide Anne who walked us around the wonderful city streets. The tour isn't one of the "routine" tours run by the main operators rather a fun, well informed wander around with a local, taking in areas that the larger tour groups miss. Definitely gets our recommendation!!
Simon & Cheryl, U.K
We just finished a 16 day trip that we're affectionately calling our "Medieval Tour" because we visited 11 European cities that had Old City Centers dating back to the 13th Century. Tallin was our last city tour (a total of 9 across 16 days) and Ann did an outstanding job. She kept us engaged, paced the tour so that my 77 & 78 y/o parents could keep up, and shared some fascinating (and mostly unpublished) pieces of information on her city. Highly recommend her and the Old Town walking tour group!
Diane, USA
Really nice tour! Ulena was really interesting and fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested to know Tallinn. Thank you!
