I had a great time on the Tallinn-Riga bus tour. Stops included a couple castles, a cave, a national park, a bobsled track, and lunch at a really fantastic restaurant. Sten was a welcoming and funny guide. This is a great way to see parts of Estonia and Latvia that you will miss if you only hit the major cities--I highly recommend it!
This was one of the BEST tours I've ever been on. The knowledge of our guide Lomas, 21, was amazing! He made the day fun and relaxing with plenty of interesting stories. I highly recommend booking this tour! You will gain more insight into the Estonian and Latvian countries from a local's perspective.
I didn't expect anything, just a drive to Riga. But in the end, all group was having so much fun and we have seen really interesting places in Estonia and Latvia. In the end, but no less important, Liine is one great guide, so nice, professional and full of knowledge.
Six of us did the tour on Monday with the wonderful guide, Mia. Young but incredibly knowledgeable and engaging, Mia took us under the skin of Tallinn and we tried Russian food (soup and the ubiquitous potato salad), fabulous ice cream, different meats and bread, flavoured cream cheeses, fish salad, a traditional dessert and liqueur! All for €49 in 3.25 hours. Great value and we learnt so much about Estonian history as well as food traditions and local delicacies. We would never have found the food halls which were well worth a visit- we revisited for street food lunch the following day! Highly recommend the tour.
Marju was a great guide and host; she has a fresh and positive energy and is very knowledgeable of Estonian history and culture. The sights visited were beautiful... a taste of Estonia beyond Tallinn, which makes you want to see more of this enchanted country.
This was such a fantastic way to travel from Tallinn to Riga, while seeing sights in between. All these sights were locations we had heard about, but ones that we could not conveniently visit on our own. This tour gave us a little bit of time at all of them, all while learning from our guide about history and about her country, Latvia. Would recommend this tour to anyone!
I am really glad I got to do the national park tour. Tallinn's old town seems to be getting the global attention for being one of the most underrated travel destinations, but I would say I was even more blown away by the nature (beautiful bogs) and the small fishing village of Estonia. My guide Kert was very knowledgeable, friendly and very funny! I felt that I could get a better perspective of life in Estonia/ Tallinn. I would recommend this tour to anyone about to visit Tallinn. This tour was the highlight of my trip! It really made me want to come back to explore the country/culture more. Thanks again Kert!
Thank you so much for an amazing journey into the past Soviet history of the country. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Probably one of the best tour we made. The guide was really interesting and the place we visited absolutely fantastic. Thank you!!
We travelled from Tallin to a small town in Latvia’s north, Mazsalaca. 5 of us and our guide Liine through a wintery, dramatic landscape. It was one of the best trips ever because as we drove Liine gave us a history lesson that was so wonderful and clear and interesting that even the teenagers were enthralled. Suddenly we were no longer just in a bus, we were part of the crusades or part of the war. It’s not an exaggeration to say that we looked at the world around us with new eyes. I would have gladly turned around and done the trip once more that same day. That’s how good it was. Thank you so much Liine and your wonderful company, I can not recommend you highly enough. Simply brilliant .
It was the most exciting national park that I ever visited!
We had a lot of fun with our guide Maria. Maria is the perfect guide, she knows a lot about Tallinn and can even tell some funny stories. We can recommend a guided tour through Tallinn with her! Thanks again! 😊
We went on free walking tour with Heli. She was so knowledgeable and humorous. A lot of things that we learned from part of her research and we couldn't find them in books. It was really worth talking this tour. Hats off to Heli. This proved the point when saw the number of visitors who joined the tour yesterday. She deserved at least a fiver from each.
We did the free tour through Tallinn on a Sunday and Henri was a very good guide, concise, funny and told very interesting stories, knew the answer to all the questions and gave us insights into the town and people -- like the Estonian way of greeting close friends (by looking away and maybe grunting "Tere!"). We had thought it had something to do with us up to that point! And we are from Germany... Glad to have that cleared up. Henri was very open and friendly and I can honestly say the 2 hours went by in a flash. Thanks, Henri!
Went on a free tour of Tallinn Old Town with Heli. She is amazing, professional, funny and enthusiast. Had the opportunity to get to know some interesting facts and stories that are not written in official guides. Heli made me appreciate the little things and events that, as she says, may change the history (to quote her 'never mess with the Finns'). I definitely recommend a tour with her.
We went on the Lahemaa National Park tour with Jevgeni, and would highly recommend it. Jevgeni was friendly, informative and funny throughout the tour (so much so that someone else not on our tour wanted to film him telling a joke he'd just told us because we were laughing so much!). We really enjoyed the tour; it was the best day of our holiday. Thank you Jevgeni!
A massive thank you to JJ. I learnt and saw a lot in one day. His local knowledge and anecdotes made it a memorable day. If you want to see the side of Estonia not usually seen by tourists, then this is the tour for you. Also thank you to Marii, for suggesting the tour for me. To sum up; great value, great lunch, great guide and most of all a tour that does exactly what it says. See you next time.
We did the Tallinn to Riga tour at the end of September and had Kris as our driver. I have to say this was one of the highlights of our trip to the Baltics and all four of us (Tom, Tim, Michael and me) would like to pass on our thanks to Kris for passing on so much of his knowledge in a friendly and engaging manner. We covered the history of the areas, visited some stunning sights and had some great conversations along the way. Without doubt, this is the best way to get between the two cities. Best of luck with the photojournalism Kris!
During my recent visit to Estonia, I decided to take up the bus tour from Tallinn to Riga. Our guide was Martin, who is friendly, kind and full of knowledge. So far I could understood based up on my experience, you can ask him any questions on history, science, economics, local culture/tradition, food, politics, hidden stunning destinations… in short your best partner in travel. He answered patiently to everyone’s query during our road trip along with his sweet smile. He is certainly the best in his domain and great guide to show you around. Highly recommended!! Thank you Martin for your time and sharing your knowledge.
While in Tallinn, we took the Coastal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski tour, we had a wonderful day with Olga, our guide who could not have been more helpful. Her knowledge of the area was amazing and made the place come to life. We had a great lunch at a local restaurant! Olga was great, we need her right now in St Petersburg. Take the trip you will enjoy it!
The tour with Jaan-Kristjan from Riga to Talinn was the best part of our Baltic vacation. Jaan was outgoing, polite, and knowledgeable as a historian-in-training, with a great sense of humor. We not only saw the beautiful countryside of both Latvia and Estonia on the way, but also learned so much about the Baltic history, culture, and customs. Thanks Jaan for the memorable experience and we hope to see you again when we go back to Estonia in the future!
It was an amazing day in the Lahemaa National Park with Kert. He is a professional guide with a lot of knowledge of Estonian history. He tells with passion and humor and brings a lot of personal experience with it. The national park is really amazing and wonderful place and if you go to Tallinn, this tour should be in your program.
Our family of 6 wanted a tour where we could walk the old city and also see other sights like the summer palace. In addition, we had special dietary needs. John (getting his Master's in History) was such an amazing host. He met us off the ship and both drove and walked us around. He brought us to a great restaurant for a gluten free lunch. He was so knowledgeable and friendly. Don't hesitate to book your cruise shore tour with them. Much better than what is offered on the ship.
We had a great time on the Funky Bike Tour of Kalamaja. Our guide Maria was enthusiastic and friendly. She gave us so much information about Estonia, she patiently answered our plethora of questions, and she paced the tour so that it was interesting and active for us parents and our two teen daughters. Our kids loved it! Maria even brought us Estonian candy, sharing it at just the moment when we all needed a sugar hit! The biking was easy and the day, beautiful! We would highly recommend the tour and Maria as a guide!
Traveller Tours and Lline, our guide, were incredible. Booking was easy and convenient (all via email). We picked the Lahemaa National Park tour and Lline allowed us to make some modifications based on our interests. The national park was beautiful and my children loved the break from museums and historical sites. As we traveled through the the forest and bogs, Lline did a magnificent job telling us stories of Estonia, it's myths and legends; she pointed out flowers, moss etc. used in traditional medicine. It was absolutely wonderful! We then went to visit an abandoned soviet submarine demagnetization base. Lline's descriptive narrative made the base come alive - it was eerie yet fascinating. Our next stop was lunch at a great local restaurant near the Old Town, free from the mass of tourists. We then went on a walking tour of the Old Town. Lline pointed out interesting things in the city that we would have missed had we gone on a self guided tour. We ended our day knowing more about Estonia, appreciating its history and culture and yearning to return for more. Of all the tours we took on our Baltic cruise, this was by far, our favorite. Tip: Estonia has the highest quality handmade items and the prices are very reasonable. This is the place to buy unique gifts.
Did the husky experience. I don't have the words, you just have to try this. The Dogs were so awesome and super friendly and cute huskies (from all over the world, as we were told. The one I got was from Latvia, her name was Enna) and the family running the place was so nice and welcoming. Ploughing through snow with dogs is somehow a primal experience. At the end of it we were exhausted but super happy. A must activity in winter!
I wanted to visit several places in Estonia, to find out more about my mother's homeland but was confident enough to drive myself, so I went on a private tour. Anneli was fantastic organising the details of the day and my tour guide JJ made the day do special, I will never forget it. Tartu was the main town we visited but we also stopped at Laiuse and Poltsamaa and a windmill at Kuremaa. JJ had researched all the places we stopped very thoroughly. The tour of the printing museum in Tartu and visiting the university there were both special to me. The tour was over 12 hours and I couldn't have done it otherwise. I highly recommend Tallinn Traveller Tours, they are very professional and well-organized which is what you want when you are on holidays in a different country.
In August 2015, we (4 adults) used Tallinn Traveller Tours to organize appx. 7 hr tour of Tallinn with Katlin. We had an excellent time! Tallinn Traveller Tours took the time to organize a private trip and answer countless of emails and questions. The company was able to organize a fantastic tour, according to what we wanted to see and learn about. Katlin was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and full of energy! Although our tour had officially ended, she still took us to one more place (the Song Festival Grounds) because she felt it was important for us to see this historical place. We were so grateful for this! Our tour included a van, which was new and clean. There were water bottles waiting for us in the van. During the tour, we decided not to go to one of the planned museums. The company refunded the money right away without any hassles and without us having to remind them. Overall, Tallinn Traveller Tours is a very professional tour company with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
I took their first day trip to Riga and I'm so glad I chose that option instead of the normal 5 hour bus. The Estonian and Latvian countryside is so beautiful and I would have missed it all, since this trip follows an alternative road to Riga. Thank you so-so much Tallinn Traveller and Mart for the great day.
What an amazing company, with amazing tour guides! I was lucky enough to experience a personal tour, during the winter season with three guides, as they were creating a new tour to bring in for the summer season. Spent the day exploring several hidden spots of Estonia. Highlights included the Padise monastery, Haapsalu & Ungru Castle. Each guide was full of interesting information about each place we visited and definitely have a real love for Estonia. I couldn't have asked for a better experience as a lone traveller. Thanks guys!!
First of all because we did not expect such a wonderful city and furthermore because we never had such a great guide before. Heli: We absolutely thank you for the best tour ever and a great time in a great city! We highly recommend this tour to everybody visiting Talinn and surely will come back to see some more and sing and dance along with the Estonians!
We arranged this excursion on the Internet as an 'off ship' excursion on 14 May 2013. It was excellent on every level, highly professional, personal attention from a very pleasant young man with stacks of knowledge. We would highly recommend this company to anyone and will not hesitate to book with them again particularly as it represents very good value for money apart from anything else.
When we first saw advertising posters of tours offered to Lahemaa national park, we didn't even think about doing one. After a few days we had to admit that it is quite difficult, if not impossible, to get to Lahemaa national park without a private vehicle. So we decided to do this trip. Mart was our guide and showed up in a very good mood in the morning to pick us up. He was very friendly the whole day, brought us to beautiful places and told us a lot about Estonia. We felt like having a local friend showing us the best places of Lahemaa. Without him we could never have found all the places. One of the highlights was the Kasmu Maritime Museum, run by an Estonian family who served us an amazing lunch and guided us through the museum. Also scenic walks and spectacular nature views we had - all that accompanied in a group of 4 persons, very flexible and individual. PERFECT!! Bottom line: DO IT! Thank you Mart for this amazing trip!!
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 deal with us when we had questions or remarks. Thanks a lot for this!
This was my 8th visit to Tallinn and although I don’t usually go on organised trips we came across Tallinn Traveller Info by chance and signed up for the Paldiski tour. What a great day we had and our tour guide Kalev, I have to say, went the extra mile to make our experience a more personal and memorable one. I’m planning my next visit Tallinn in the spring of 2012 and hope to go on the Lahemaa National Park trip.
We made an amazing daytrip to the Western coast. Kalev, our guide (and owner of the company), drove us around the whole day. He was willing to answer all our (stupid) questions and told us everything we wanted to know about Estonia en the sights we were visiting. Kalev was a really fun guy to go with and he made our daytrip a very relaxing day out!
Fantastic tour - from the friendly and helpful service in the office to our guide, Mart., and all that we saw. The small group, flexibility in the itinerary, the excellent driving and great knowledge of our guide, - one of the best tours I've taken anywhere, and such good value.
Lahemaa National Park day tour - wow best tour ever and I have done many all over the world - the trip was a day I will never forget from the wonderful company to the amaing sites things I will truly never forget it was not just a trip it made memories - priceless, thank you, IF YOU HAVE A CHANCE, DO THE TRIP
This was such a great tour, definitely value for money. We were a group of six of ages ranging from 30s to 60s and all thoroughly enjoyed visiting Lahemaa National Park with our guide, Kalev. He was so friendly and didn't mind our constant questions about life in Estonia etc and also did a detour on the way as we wanted to see Jagala waterfall. Brilliant day.
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!
Fantastic tour. Enjoyed every moment. Kalev was great, really friendly and showed us so many fantastic places round the Lahemaa National Park in a day. One of the best tours I've done. The best way to see places outside the city if you can. Highly recommended and well worth every euro!!!
We came to Tallinn on a weekend trip from Helsinki, and did both the Lahemaa and Funky Bike Tours. The Tallinn Traveller team looked after us really well the whole time - we couldn't have planned a better time ourselves. Expect to laugh, learn and be pushed out of your everyday travel comfort zone.
Easily one of the best tours I've been on. Spent a full day with Kalev roaming the Lahemaa National Park and seeing a side to Estonia that you just don't get in the city. Our guide was friendly, relaxed and always up for a chat. Almost felt like we were spending the day with a good friend. If you're in Estonia for a few days, don't leave without taking this tour.
The group was small, and I got to see things I would have never discovered otherwise. All of this along with an anecdotal history of cowboy capitalism. Everyone at Tallinn Traveller made my trip to Estonia one I will never forget, I cannot recommend them enough!
We enjoyed the free tour, our guide didn´t save his own opinions, which was good to notice - you feel you get the real story instead of the tourist-stuff, an absolute must if you visit Tallinn!
The pubcrawl was great, we had a good time, met new people, and found out a lot about Tallinn´s nightlife, we´ll be back in Tallinn, and we will be sure to hit the pubcrawl again!
The Beautiful Bike Tour was the highlight of my stay in Tallinn! The guide was very friendly and I enjoyed it so much I went out on the Funky Bike Tour the next day!! If you do one thing while in Tallinn, go on these bike tours!!!
Best city tour ever, anywhere on the world! 2 hours over lunch time in the heat and not 1 second bored! thanks a lot for the many ghost stories!
A wee poem about the Tallinn tent in Scots/Glaswegian: ——- The Tallinn Tent’s a Stoater, Full-a things tae dae, Once yiv seen Tallinn’s sights, You’ll shuirly want tae stay ——- The Pub crawl’s trully gallus, The bars are full beer, If ahd got mair money, Ahd want tae stay a year ——- The lassies are aw bonnie, They’ll try tae nip a kiss, The Tallinn Tent Pub Crawl, Isnie one tae miss!
Have been to the Pub Crawl at least five times – the best and easiest way to meet new and cool people from all over the world.
This may have been the best travel dollars I have ever spent. Heli was superb and made wonderful Tallinn even better with her knowledge, fun personality, obscure facts and entertaining ways.
One of the best city tours I have ever taken and I have visited more than 40 countries.
Great tour to the parts of Tallinn that the tourists don’t see.
Fantastic service. The walking tour was one of the best I have been on. And after 40 countries I have been on a few.
All our tour guides are young educated locals so the tours feel more like discovering with a local friend.
With us you'll explore the highlights, but also experience authentic less-discovered destinations.
We want everyone to get personal attention from the guide so we aim to keep our groups rather small.
