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.
We had a very knowledgeable guide, Igor, who provided us with useful information about the city and the country. Very good command of the English language and an easy-to-hear clear voice. In hindsight,and after touring the place on our own , we would have liked to spend more time at the lower town and less visiting the outskirts area now being gentrified after housing old factories.
Igor was great. Very informative. This tour was a great way to learn about Tallin's history. Gave us a good start for the rest of our day.
