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 and during high season (june-august) also at 15:00 o'clock in front of the city tourist information at Niguliste 2.
NB! This tour has restricted access for wheelchairs.

Reviews - Tallinn Free Tour / Walking Tours

This was my first time in Tallinn. I had the opportunity to take part to the Tallin free tour and I enjoyed it a lot. Although I participated after having visited some of the museums, I had the opportunity to learn more about Tallinn and the history of Estonia during the two-hour tour. I would recommend it to anybody who has the time to attend it. I would like to thank the guide of my tour, Mart, who made the tour absolutely enjoyable!

On our first day in Tallinn we decided to explore the city with a free walking tour. Our guide Henri was super nice and funny. His knowledge about the Estonian history and the city itself was remarkable. He answered all our questions and also gave us some local tipps. We really appreciated the tour. It was the perfect start for our trip to Tallinn! :)

Really great tour of Tallinn with Henri. He was very passionate, informative and added great stories and humor to our trip. We followed up on many of his suggestions of what to see on our own and we were very pleased.

We enjoyed a great free tour of beautiful Tallinn on 7th May. There were a lot of people waiting so I was impressed to see 2 guides turn up, we were split into two groups then off we went. Martin, our guide was brilliant. Although still a large group everyone could hear him and his English was excellent. Apart from the history of Estonia and the info about the places seen on the tour, we also learned about the people during the Soviet days and their love of Dallas on tv and the stamp collecting punks. It was all so interesting and the time flew by. Thank you Martin, I thoroughly recommend the tour.
Barbara Robertson, England
This was one of the best walking tours we have ever been to. With Henri introducing Tallinn and Estonian culture, the tour was even more interesting. We like his stories very much:)

We did Tallinn Free Tour (March 26, 2016) with Liine and she was amazing: very informative energetic and with an excellent sense of humor. Sure, guides are supposed to be funny, but Liine exceeds all expectations easily. Strongly recommended.

Helli was brilliant, informative, fun, knowledgable and everything you could want in a guide. Thoroughly recommend - a fantastic couple of hours, and shame on anyone who went on the tour and then sneaked away without giving a donation. Vote for Helli.
Lorri, UK
A huge thank you to Martin for a wonderful tour of the old town on October 28th. A fast paced, extremely entertaining and very informative two hours -- it was a perfect introduction to the city. We look forward to visiting again and taking a longer tour with you.

A little bit more than two hours touring with Helli passed like a breaze as was the best, most enjoyable and educational city tour I have ever done and I have taken lots! The small tip I give was not worth her knowledge, enthusiasm, sence of humor..and she made the Astonia history so simple, easy and fun for me to understand and remember. I m thankfull!

Did the free walking tour with Mairi on 10/16 - very entertaining and informative. I loved the time she spent talking about Estonian culture and perspectives. She's a culture theory major at uni and it shows! Recommend.

I took part to 2 guided tours, and both were great experiences! A free tour through Tallinn lead by Mart: interesting tour, nice and smart guide, very friendly, with excellent English. The other one in Lahemaa with George, which I would recommend both for the amazing views and experiences throughout the natural reserve and for being organized in such a personal, smooth way. Thank you guys for the good time :-)

Chiara, Italy
We participated on the two-hour free walking tour in Tallinn led by Mart. His presentation of the city was fun, educational, not boring at all and his stories made it very relateable. I especially liked that he not only introduced the city but also talked about the people of Tallinn and Estonia. No questions were left unanswered and in general he had a huge impact on our impression of the city.
Veronika, Hungary
My husband and I joined the free Tallinn walking tour with mart on Thursday 6 August . We have done a number of these tours around Europe and mist recently Riga and Vilnius as part of our trip to the Baltic countries . We found the tour to be an excellent mix of history , culture and information on Estonian society . Mart was absolutely excellent as a guide, informative , charming and was a great representative for his country . The tour was one of the highlights of our Baltic trip and added immensely to our enjoyment of Tallinn . We would recommend mart , Tallinn and Estonia to all our friends .
