Tours Heli is Doing
Best of Tallinn Tour: Highlights & Hidden Gems
Coming with a Cruise or short in time? See the Old Town and other main sights in just five hours.
Heli is blond and bubbly, her vast energy reserve surpassed only by that of the Sun. Perhaps the most hyperactive person in the country, she just keeps going with the fierce tenacity of a Duracell bunny, stopping only to take a power nap every two or three months. The only thing you must be wary of is the extensive amount of sarcastic jokes she employs, the use of which she blames on the many British comedies she grew up with.
When not clumsily running into trees (and rocks, children) on the job, Heli likes to volunteer at different projects, dance and succumb to her incurable Shopaholicism. Right now she is studying television and film at the Baltic Film and Media School, as she needs to learn how to make brainwashing political commercials for when she finally becomes the first female president of Estonia. Her motto is: There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers!

Nous avons adoré ce tour, notre guide a été très intéressante en agrémentant sa présentation avec des anecdotes personnelles ou familiales. Vraiment un super tour.
We have visited Tallinn quire many times, but spend more time on shopping centres or cafes and never actually taken time to learn about the city and it's history. This time we wanted to try something different and although it was -5C and snowy, we took the possibility to go on 2-hour guided walking tour. And boy what a tour it was - Heli, our guide brought the history alive with great stories and anecdotes. We learned more about our own country too as we now understood what effect Finland has had on Estonias hard battle of independence. Great tour - well worth the time and money :)
Heli is a hell of a tour guide. absolutly enthusiastic in describing her beloved city and estonians. She is equally funny and knowledged! I recomment this tour to everyone who thinks about viditing tallinn.
After arriving in from Riga that morning, Heli and the walking tour of Tallinn was my first experience, she was so fantastic brilliant, energetic and I really enjoyed her spirit.
Tour: 10.00 am - noon Tuesday 13.06.17. Exceeded expectations (and I've been on a few). Superb guide: knowledgeable, entertaining and most of all she seemed to enjoy herself as much as we did! A valuable insight to places of interest recommended in my Berlitz guide (plug), She deserves to win the trip to Berlin (send my commission to the usual address). Seriously, DO IT!
What a wonderful day in Tallinn, warm with clear blue sky. We are so lucky to have Heli as our old town walking tour guide making this 2 hour journey an enjoyable and unforgettable one. Thanks to Heli and the tourism bureau. Love you all.
She was a very enthusiastic and knowledgable guide. She put a lot of humorous elements into the tour :D This tour is highly recommended for all people who would visit Tallinn! We will come back again! Thank you!
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.
Today was my best Tour around Tallinn. Heli is very smart and very funny, energetic and informative with awesome taste of humour.
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.
Went on a great tour today with Heli, she was very informative and injected a lot of humour into the commentary. Was very impressed that the tour was free and would highly recommend it as a way of seeing this beautiful city and getting a brief history.
We were on a tour led by the very funny and informative Heli. Her English is amazing. Learnt a lot about this lovely city, country and people. Would highly recommend doing this tour.
We went on a tour with Heli as our guide. She was very entertaining and spoke amazing English. To be able to joke as easily as she did in a second language is a skill! She was very informative and made history interesting.
We had Heli on our tour and she made it hands down the best free walking tour we have done -and we have done a fair few over the years (because the price is right :) ) Her knowledge of the city and its history is top notch and her delivery is right on with humour and information. You will be in good hands if Heli is taking your group.
Fabulous tour in Tallinn. Our guide was amazing. Highly recommended tour! Heli is the best guide! She's a star and should be on stage. Full of information and character and made the trip just brilliant! Thank you
Best tour guide ever!!! Well done Heli
Today with Heli, she was fantastic, incredible English and an excellent sense of humour, lots of history. I travel a lot and have been to many tours, she is a crack ! i recommend her 100 %
We took a walking tour of Tallinn and it was so amazing. Our guide Helli was very knoweledgeable and had a great sense of humor. It was a great opportunity for us to learn tragic but valuable history of the country and the world history surrounding Estonia. We would definitely recommend the tour for all tourists of Estonia. Thanks Helli!
Took the walking tour with Heli straight from our cruise ship... what a highlight of the cruise ! Heli is outstanding, funny and witty. Highly recommended.
I also participated the tour on 20th of June and must say that what an actor Estonia has missed in HELI. The tour was fantastic mix of laughter, acting, facts and figures. Thank you indeed.
Hi everyone, we had a tour with our guide HELI on the 20th of June 2016 and it was very nice. HELI is hugely entertaining, interacts with the audience in a great manner and passes on more information to you than you would believe is possible in one hour. Not just the years and numbers, but speckled with lots of anecdotes and light humour. Best tour I (we!) ever had! Wish she could be hired for Amsterdam...
Had a tour on June 20th at 19:00 with Heli who was the best Guide I've ever had. Our Group was really impressed of her knowledge and the way she presented her hometown. We all enjoyed every second of her stories.
Excellent tour with a great animated tour guide - Heli. Total walk is about 2 miles in 2 hours and the time went by very quickly because Heli was captivating. Highly 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.
A little bit more than two hours touring with Helli passed like a breeze as it 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, sense of humor..and she made the Estonia history so simple, easy and fun for me to understand and remember. I m thankful!
I went on the free tour of the Tallinn Old Town with Heli today and it was excellent, really I would have expected to pay a lot of money for a tour guide who had such good knowledge. She presented very well even with a fairly large group from lots of different countries, she was very entertaining and interesting. Thanks so much, it was a really great first morning in Tallinn.
Tried the Tallinn Free Tour back in mid-May. Blessed with good weather but even more importantly blessed by having Heli as the guide to take around. Learnt interesting history and culture of Estonia, and the places/restaurants she recommended were indeed excellent. She was probably the best tour guide I've had in my travels - enthusiastic, pretty, knowledgeable and great sense of humour (deserves the beer). The tour contributed to a very positive impression of this pretty city. Thank you Heli and keep it up!
Thanks to the great weather and our funny, energetic guide Heli I had a great time. We saw the best parts of the old town, got to know some very interesting stories and got tips for other things to see and do. I can only recommend this tour!
Perfect! Really enjoyed my day. Nice views, nature and a wonderfull meal at the fishers place! Small groups and friendly guide with a lot of info and details. Superb!
Well done Tallinn Traveller Tours and thanks to our wonderful guide Heli, one of the best tour guides you could ever hope for. A wonderfully bubbly and energetic young lady with a real talent and passion for storytelling. Superb English too. Over the 2 hours she told lots of great ghost tales with an wicked sense of humour and captivated her audience totally. Among these ghostly tales she added a few other historic details and quirky, funny anecdotes. You cover quite a distance walking around the beautiful streets of the old town but you get a real great feel for the town and some wonderful views from the viewing platforms at the top of the town. It can be a bit steep uphill but everyone should be able to manage and we'll worth the views. Heli organised a nice drink for everyone at a really cosy cafe at the end of the tour which is a really nice way to finish off a great tour. So where you're next in Tallinn check out this Ghost tour and if all their tour guides are as good as Heli you'll have a great evening. 10/10 to Tallinn Traveller Tours, great value at 13€, well done and thank you!
I joined the awesome walking tour with Heli. Thanks for all these interesting stories and silly jokes!
I took this tour, and it really really made my day. Seriously, thank you Heli, it was awesome!
Heli was our guide around Tallinn on 23 Nov. What a fantastic and enthusiastic guide. She made the Old Town come alive and her delivery and knowledge was impeccable. Thanks Heli!
I took Tallin free tour. The tour was awesome as well as the guide Heli;) i would highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Tallin. It is fun and you learn a lot about the city and citizens)))
Did the free walking tour today. I thoroughly enjoyed this and found it very informative and our guide charming. Her name is Hellii (?) and she was challenged by 3 people in the group when she told us that Tallinn was bombed by the Russians in 1944 - 300 planes she said and it destroyed a large part of the city. Her challengers said that Russia didn't have an air force so it can't be. I just googled - Wikepedia confirmed exactly what she said. So, there you go - the tour comes with a highly recommended from me.
We as a group of 15 roughly people took the free walking tour. We had a lot of fun and I still remember a lot of the interesting stories about Tallinn. Thank you Heli for this amazing experience!
joined the old town walking tour on today. the guide, Hely, did a great job introducing this history of the monuments as well as Estonia. through her jokes and informations given as we walked the old town, I do learn a lot about this beautiful place.
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.
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!
Here is a link to a review from one of the leading newspapers in Norway: http://www.dagbladet.no/2013/01/08/tema/reise/tallinn/storbyferie/ferie/25089042/ There is also a video from some of the Free walking tour The text is written in Norwegian but Google translate did a quite good translation to English.
Heli was very enthusiastic and helpfull. Thanks Heli for wonderfull tour. May god bless you and wish you have a wonderfull life. Thanks for your help :).
I want to thank out tour leader Heli for a both informative and fun tour of Tallinn. It was great despite the awful weather.
Had an amazing walking tour with Heli today, very informative and enjoyable, had a great sense of humour which made the tour all round fun. Cheers :)
We spent 3 fantastic days in Tallin last August and fortunately we visited the Traveller Tours Office . It was a great tour, the information was very interesting and given with lots of humor. HELI i hope you'll get the OSCAR this year....you are absolutely professional. We love you!
I had the great pleasure of participating in the "Tallinn Ghost Tour" guided by the hilarious Heli Jurisson on 14 August. With her tremendous enthusiasm and razor-sharp wit, she made the undead come alive with her magnificent storytelling.
Great tour. Our guide Helle was hilarious, entertaining and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend.
The Old town walking tour was excellent; the tour guide Heli, was funny, articulate, informative, memorable. We learned a lot about the history and the present state of Tallinn, and Estonia! highly recommended - the best way to enjoy the old town of Tallin, July 9th 2012
Extremely good tour around Tallinn's old town. Brilliant ''performance" of sarcastic but, in fact, completely friendly Heli (14.02)! I would love to participate again :)
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.
Heli was great!
The walking tour with Heli on 7/18/11 was excellent!
Heli did an amazing job yesterday. I never thought a tour could be so interesting. Thanks very much. One of the highlights of my vacation for sure :)
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.
