Kristel Tour Guide

Kristel has been on the road of studying art history since she read the “Da Vinci Code” at 15. She is currently doing her masters in art history and even through she has yet to discover the secrets and conspiracies of Estonian and foreign arts, she is still happy with her academic choices and focus on Medieval art.

She has spent a semester as an exchange student in South Carolina, USA and learned to appreciate the many unique Estonian things you don’t find in many places of the world (a decent sauna, proper sour cream and Kohuke for example). Kristel has also worked in one of the most prestigeous theatres of Estonia for five years - she knows the plays by heart. To counteract this wave of high culture, she admits enjoying the line up TLC and Netflix on her free time, too.

Kristel is a hawkeye with attention to detail (who else writes their thesis about foliage carving in gothic cathedrals?). On her tours, get ready for a really interesting look at how we are shaped and influenced by the art and history that surrounds us.

Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"Brilliant sights, great guide, wonderful day"

This was a highlight of our trip. Kristel was fantastic, & extremely knowledgeable. Pleasant company on the tour, great lunch & seeing some excellent sites (13th century castles, military museum, baltic countryside, etc.) worked a treat for us.

"Tallin Tours do care"

Whether due to demand or breakdown it was necessary for Tallinn Tours to hire a vehicle. At an early stop we mentioned the smell of fuel fumes within the vehicle. Our guide agreed and promptly organised a vehicle swap at our next stop. Later I misplaced my reading glasses and our guide was prepared to make phone calls and arrangements for collection when found. It seems to me when all is going well people are not really tested but the response of Tallinn Tours when matters were not going according to script was impressive. Great personal skills from our tour guide on all fronts.

"Great Tour"

A great day excursion with a number of diverse locations within the National Park, a great way to see the rural side of Estonia away from the city. The bog walk was especially memorable, although insect repellent is a good idea as there are mosquitoes in the warm weather! Kristel was an excellent guide.

"THIS is the tour/SHE is the guide"

The tour from Tallinn to Riga was very well conceived. It covered many miles yet had frequent stops of historical-cultural significance to break up the distances covered. Why not just hop on the bus? Because you would not see the bee caves. You would not learn about Nazi and then Soviet occupations and atrocities. You would not share a lovely lunch with Kristel, the guide from heaven. She drives the van very safely, she understands her subject, and she intuitively knows her clientele. What a marvelous eye-opening way to learn about Estonian and Latvian history and culture. Okay, I got the tour; I got the experience AND still I would go again. Please don’t miss this opportunity. We are from Santa Cruz, California and are not impressed easily. This one nailed us.

"See The Countryside"

The sightseeing tour bus from Tallinn to Riga was very enjoyable and allowed us the chance to see more of Estonia and Latvia than just emerging in the big cities. It also allowed us the chance to spend a day with a very good guide, Kristel, and ask questions while enjoying the views and sights. My wife and I would definitely do this again.

"A Cool Way To See Rural Estonia & Latvia"

I really enjoyed the day trip from Tallinn to Riga. There was a lot of driving involved but it was a lot preferable to getting a flight. Really enjoyed the hike through the National Park and being able to walk down the bobsleigh track!
