Tours Julia 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.
Born and raised in Tallinn Julia loves her hometown and wishes to share her knowledge of Tallinn and Estonia with people she meets. Julia studied architecture and although she is a full time tour guide she still finds time to moonlight as an architect as well. When not on a tour or at the office Julia loves to wander around on her own, people-watch, and poke her nose through an open door of a house to see not only what is outside but how people make use of their buildings and live their lives.
She is a firm believer that the more you do the more you will accomplish, in Estonian we say, "Kes teeb, see jõuab." And boy, does Julia manage to do much with her time! Not only is she a tour guide and an architect, she also sings and practices Muay Thai. Julia is a veteran of the ballet school. She speaks fluently three languages - Estonian, Russian, and English. Being from and Estonian-Russian family Julia has a unique point of view and insight to Estonia. What little free time Julia has is spent home with her cats (Sherlock and Watson) and watering her many house plants.

The two of us had a walking tour of old Tallinn with Julia. She has great knowledge of the area and the buildings. As well she was very personable and we enjoyed our time with her. We asked for a restaurant that served typical Estonian food and she suggested Grandma's which turned out to be great. Thanks Julia
Julia’s discussion of the history and the architecture of Tallinn was outstanding.
We scheduled a 2-hour walking tour. Julia was very good and informative about the history of the city and its architecture. Unfortunately, it was a very rainy Sept 17 when we were in the town. The only suggestion from our group was we did not get inside any buildings, except for one church which only teachers or pastors were permitted in the altar area. I should have been more specific about what we would see and if it included going inside (other than those that had an entrance fee). Generally, under the weather circumstances, Julia was very interesting and fun. She led us to a great Tallin eatery for lunch for bread and soup to warm us up!
