"Best tour of our cruise "

Eight of us booked the 5 hour tour while we were visiting on a cruise. It was our best tour with the best guide. Chris picked us up and dropped us off at the cruise terminal. Chris was informative and passionate as he told us about Tallinn history while walking us through the old town and pointing out important buildings and landmarks. The town is beautiful, and the history is interesting and sad at times, but that of resilient people. We then got into the van went to Kadriorg Palace. Chris dropped us off at a great cafe and then drove up to the other end of the park and walked back. While he did that we ordered our pastries and sat down and rested for a bit. He caught up with us and we all finished up and made the walk through the park to the palace. We walked further to the presidential palace where the president actually lives. Unbelievably we were able to talk right in front of it. There were a couple of guards but there was not a sense that they need to worry. We ended with a drive to an up and coming neighborhood in Tallinn that is repurposing old buildings and making high end apartments. We were back to the ship with an hour to spare which is how we like it. The day was wonderful. Chris was amazing. As we walked by the cruise groups with 50 people, we kept saying…. This was the way to go.


Kris our guide was so knowledgeable and extremely accommodating to what we want to know and do. We have learned a lot about Tallin with the old town tour, the area of revival where the train tracks are, the area by the port and the contrasting memorials built by the Soviets and the one built by the locals to commemorate those who were tortured and died from the atrocities and the presidential palace and the Kardiog palace that now serves as the museum. Thanks Kris! Hope to come Back in better weather to explore the Lahemaa park.

"Perfect day trip - extremely recommended"

Magnificent landscape, interesting cultural monuments and picturesque Baltic Sea coast. Many thanks to our guide Chris for the organization, the well-founded and interesting explanations and the caring support. All around a fantastic day!


This was one of the best decisions I made! I had such a wonderful time, saw things I never would have seen on my own, and as a solo traveler, felt completely safe. I highly recommend it!

"The tour was perfect"

I choose this tour to see small towns and part of Gauja National park on the way to Riga. Our guide explained to us lots of history and culture and he took good care of us until we arrived at hotel. We were 100% satisfied ! Thanks again!

"Great historical tour of Tallinn"

This was by far the best surprise of our quick trip. the five hour tour flew by. Really glad we booked this. Our guide was very informative and accommodating for an older person in our group. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a great background for the various buildings and sights we toured. I would highly recommend the five hour tour if you can. It really made all of our group want to comeback and explore more for our next trip.
