Jaan was a fantastic guide who made the journey fun and informative. We saw some interesting sights and learnt a lot of important history about Estonia. I especially liked the museum stop. The museum itself wasn't exceptional but Jaan's narrative on modern Estonia using the exhibits was great. Totally recommended.
To complete our tour of the Baltics, we of course had to go to quiet Estonia. Our tour guide grew up in Tartu and currently resides in Tallinn so he knew the area very well. There are a couple of stops in Latvia where you get to see the remnants of an old castle. You get to see the sand stone cliffs though beware that this is a hike of climbing stairs so make sure to wear sneakers. Our guide was very nice and provided us with bug spray because of the mosquitoes but the real problem turned out to be the flies that circled your head and never landed which actually led to the 6 o'clock fly story so even that had a positive spin to things. Lunch was just over the Estonian border in the city of two countries (Volka in Latvian and Volga in Estonian) and this was followed by a trip to a military museum where Jaan shared his personal experience in the mandatory defence forces and what it was like to grow up during all of these changing times for Estonia. He also picked out some items to give funny stories to make the museum more light hearted. That part of the trip alone would have earned this tour 5 stars. We then went to see the ruins of a castle and it's three lines of defense and while there, we got to try put the kiik. We definitely didn't go 360 but it was still fun. We got dropped of in Old Town of Tallinn between the information center and freedom square so it was really easy to navigate. Great job Jaan. Sorry Estonia didn't pick the hedgehog as the national animal.
We had a hugely enjoyable trip from Tallinn to Riga with Janne as our driver and guide. Indeed in some ways it was quite the best day of our holiday! In addition to seeing places we might never otherwise have visited, we learned a great deal about the history of Estonia and Latvia. (Surrounded and fought over by bigger states, in many ways they have suffered from too much history.) The places we visited and the information Jaan provided were an fascinating introduction to a part of Europe we would like to know better. The lunch too was excellent! Thank you, Janne, and Tallinn Traveller Tours, for a memorable day.
Lovely day with witty and attentive Jaan as guide ☺ Thank you!
I enjoyed our group, satisfied with the places we have visited and most of all happy with the driver-guide who is very knowledgeable and accomodating (i don't know if his name is just Jaan or Jaan-Kristian; our tour was on 12th June)
This was a long day, although as advertised almost 12 hours. Our guide, Jaan, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, helpful, polite and nothing was too much trouble. He looked after us very well. We felt that the day two stops could have been omitted. although I appreciate it was as per itinerary. Everyone was tired. The (hired) bus could have been cleaner inside. Not up to the standard of vehicle used on previous trip.
We took the day trip to Laheema National Park, and it's well worth the money. If you are in Tallinn and have seen all the sites in the old town, I would recommend taking this day trip to see the northern country side, which includes a walk over the bog and a visit to a lovely fishing village on the Baltic Sea. The tour was excellent, our guide Ian (maybe it spells Jann?) spoke perfect English, was very knowledgeable and friendly and was a great guide. There were 6 people in our tour, and they don't take more than 8 people in the van, which is the perfect size.
What a great way to see choice bits of Estonia and Latvia outside their capitals. Our well-informed guide led us on a well-organized tour. Even our lunch was efficient. We placed our orders, the guide phoned them in, and lunch was ready for us right after we sat down.
