Tours Igor is Doing
Best of Tallinn: Bike + Walking Tour with a Local
Coming with a Cruise? See the Old Town and Kadriorg or Kalamaja in just four hours.
Igor is from Narva - a border-town between Estonia and Russia. He used to work as a tour guide in the medieval Narva castle. Having just a castle to work in gets boring when there is a whole Old Town in Tallinn. He moved to Tallinn for secondary school and we decided to put his Medieval knowledge to good use at Tallinn Traveller Tours, too.
Igor is a smartie, who sometimes gets swayed into streams of random thoughts (what are whales trying to tell us, exactly?). He is a big fan of British panel shows, QI being a favourite for the abundance of random facts. Even though he loves humour he is incredibly good at holding a frown - we’d say even professional at it.
He also used to play accordion and football for five years but he says he is still terrible at it. Maybe that’s why he changed to tour guiding which he is awesome at.
He might seem reserved at first, but don’t be fooled. Igor is a wealth of knowledge and random facts and his deadpan humour will catch you off guard when you least expect it.
Hear the colorful tales of Tallinn and its history without getting dizzy with the dates and figures.
Coming with a Cruise or short in time? See the Old Town and Kalamaja in just three hours.
A walk through the haunted Old Town with spooky ghost stories, legends and old myths.
Learn about Estonian culture and identity while riding through the parks and picturesque seaside.
Discover the Estonian food and history of Kalamaja, the bohemian district in Tallinn.
Don't mind a bigger tour group? Free things always attract more crowd but the more the merrier.
Igor was an excellent guide, well versed in all things Tallinn (Estonian history, politics, architecture, language, Old Town, culture, the Gilds, Parliament, McDonalds, etc) and fluent in English. Highly competent and thorough. Tour Co recommended by Maarja.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to present the complexities of Estonia 's past in a balanced and often new perspective
Igor explained Tallinn’s unique history in an interesting and easily understandable way. Highly recommend as a starting point for learning about Tallinn and Estonia.
It was our guide's first food tour - and he did a great job! We ate our way through Tallinn market, a Soviet style canteen, Hipster heavan in Telliskivi & finished with desert and Vana Tallinn at "Pööbel". Friendly Igor spoke impecable English and knew absolutely everything - we had a wonderful time!
The tour was awesome!! We came across numerous buildings and statues, and each of them had a different (sometimes cruel) story to tell. Igor brings these legends with enthousiasm, passion and even a sinister sense of humor. :) You'll be sucked into the stories as if you are living them. Keep up the good work! When attending this tour after sunset and in cold temperatures, the cruel medieval stories really come to its best! Afterwards we ate in a medieval themed restaurant (peppersack) to make the experience complete. What a night! When having a few spare hours in Tallinn, don't hesitate and book this tour. Relaly. You won't regret.
A fun way to spend an evening in Tallin.
