About this tour


Who said tours can't be fun? Join our young guides for a walk on the centuries old streets of the Tallinn Old Town as they tell you colorful tales of the city, its history and its people.

Estonia's story is a complex one, but the young guides know how to lay down the wisdom without getting stuck in the dizzying world of numbers and figures. The best part is that they like to have fun while doing so. The even better part – the tours are FREE! Our Free Tour guides work only on tips.

NB! For groups bigger than 8 people please book in advance tallinn@traveller.ee!

Please note - Tallinn Free Tour attracts a lot of people (especially from May to September). If you want to have the guide just for your group then please book the Old Town Walking Tour.

NB! Tallinn Free Tour is in ENGLISH and leaves every day at noon in front of the city tourist information at Niguliste 2.

Reviews - Tallinn Free Tour / Walking Tours

My friend and I went on the Old Town Walking tour in June 2013 (it was free when we went, though I'm not sure if it's still free). It was a bright, sunny, beautiful day, and Karoli Loo was our tour guide. WOW! What a fantastic guide. Bubbly (full of energy), charismatic, incredibly knowledgeable and very funny (great dry sense of humor). This was one of the best walking tours I'd ever been on. Tallinn's old town is beautiful -- like something out of a fairy tale. I highly recommend going on this tour. Make sure you have Karoli. She was great! :) Thanks, Tallinn Traveller Day Tours. This definitely made my time in Tallinn unforgetable. :)

We altogether three people took the free walking tour in July 2013. We really enjoyed it as Celia, our guide, answered all our questions and has her own enthusiastic way of getting knowledge across so that you can't stop listening. Overall this tour is an amazing offer which we would recommend and would love to take part in again.

Celia took us around Tallinn old town for the free walking tour. Not only did she know every detail about the city and its history but she delivered it with passion and humor. A definite must as soon as you arrive.

Free Tallinn Walking Tour - With 20+ walking tours behind me, Anne has to be one of the best guides I have seen in a long time... She has the perfect balance between info and humor. You cannot go wrong her being your guide in this beautiful city so SIGN UP NOW before someone else books her for a tour.

I took the free walking tour alone and it was great, very informative and the guide Silja made it very easy to chat to the others on the tour about Tallinn history. Definitely a good place to start to get a grip of the city.

The 15th of may, in Tallinn, we had a chance to meet a very efficient travel agency, " Tallinn Traveller tours " as we thought of having a tour through the outstanding Lahemaa National Park. Quite by chance, we got a guide for both of us, Mart, whose proficiency and kindness deserve to be highly praised. Thanks to him, we could stroll through the park for not least than ten hours ( ! ) for a rather fair price, so that we could see prominent aeras and discover some scarcely visited spots. We did enjoy this trip and we warmly recommand this excellent agency to those who are keem on unusual discoveries. Pierre et Catherine de Paris

Had a great time on the free city walking tour. It took about an hour, My guide was Anne and she was a good guide to listen to. We were taken around some of the famous sites around the old town. We met at the tourist information centre very close to the old town square. Anne was both very informative and charismatic. I had a great time.

Last week we visited Tallinn and I went to visit Tallinn Traveller Tours to ask some questions. All staff-members were super friendly and helpful. Afterwards I joined the free tour with Silja - it was my best city tour with even the best guide.... Silja was very familiar with the area and the history - and knew how to match everything together that it keeps an interesting and fun tour!!!! Thx for the great tour!

Hicimos el Tallinn Free Tour y nos encanto. Nos parecio ameno y completo. La guia era un encanto, simpatica y nos supo transmitir muchos aspectos del dia a dia que, de otra manera, no llegas a conocer. En definitiva, es absolutamente recomendable reservar ese ratito (de 12 a 2) para dejarse llevar y conocer Tallinn.

We had a great time on the walking tour, the young lady who ran the tour had a lot of great information and made the tour lots of fun, I would recommend this is a heartbeat :)
Meaghan and Jeremy, Australia
It was a very refreshing and fast paced walking tour. We had a great number of people in our tour which made it a bit harder to hear everything, but it worked. Our tour guide was very informative in her description of the buildings and sites we were able to see. Her personal opinions reflected the "true history" of Tallinn! The tour started on time and ended on time which made the rest of our plans go smoothly. Thanks for a great job!

Heli was great!
