Andres Senior Tour Guide

Andres has studied culture theories and theology thus working at Traveller is no surprise. We take pride in being one of the biggest employers of graduates of those fields in Estonia.

He has spent his years gathering a wide array of experiences. He has been a voluntary social worker in Zambia, worked as a tour guide in a museum, and been a mascot for a Finnish alcohol company. Andres says he has picked every fruit agriculture has to offer, mostly in boiling heat in Australia.

Among weirder activities he is proud of he once cosplayed a monk for two weeks and lived in an old monastery (in October and medieval monasteries don’t have radiators) and he once spent two months during winter living in an apartment with 5C. Strangely he seems to somehow be stuck in cold temperatures a lot.

He buys and sells used books and dreams of one day owning a bookshop. At his free time, Andres likes to spend time with his dog named Neighbour or Naaber in Estonian.

Andres is humorous and loves to talk about personal memories and experiences to sights on the tour, these memories are mostly embarrassing. Indulge him.

Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"Great guide, nice tour."

If you want to escape the city, this is a nice way to do so. My guide was simply great and especially the small hiking tours were fun.

"Amazing Nature Experience at Lahemaa National Park"

We had an amazing day experiencing the breathtaking and unique beauty of the Lahemaa National Park. The highlight for us was the Viru Bog Trail. Hard to find anything similar in the rest of the world. Thanks to Andres for all the information provided in a pleasant and entertaining way. We will be back for sure.

"Better than I thought"

It was very interesting especially because my guide was really fond of nature, hiking & mushrooms. He was available and kind.

"Super Ausfluf in den Nationalpark"

Einfach klasse. Absolut lohnenswert für Naturliebhaber

"Excellent — Exceeded Expectations!"

This day trip deserves more attention! We had an amazing time. Our tour guide, Andres, has a wealth of knowledge on all things Estonia (and Lahemaa, of course), and he shared that knowledge in a way that was light, funny and engaging. We had a great time with Andres! Each stop on the trip offers its own beauty and serenity. We loved the bog — during a cold, rainy day, it had an added mystical feel — and thought the hikes through Estonia's famed forests were lovely. Each hour is different, and you cover a lot of ground (including about six or seven miles by foot) throughout. If you're visiting Tallinn, I would highly recommend making time for this.

"Great tour, even in winter"

The tour was so much more fun than just taking a bus from Tallinn to Riga. We had an amazing time with our guide Andres who adapted the tour to the group without us even asking. I would highly recommend the tour and especially this guide!
