Tours Maibel 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.
Maibel is one of the many historians among the ranks of our tour guides. She spent three years studying History in London - she is an avid fan of timetravel, currently only available through imagination, books, films and theme parties.
Volunteering in a museum made her realise that museums are where she wants to work full-time one day. Guiding tours is similar enough - it is basically like a museum on feet. One of her hobbies is swing dancing. Maibel claims to not be musical but we know she can play Estonian bagpipe and the ukulele, both of which are musical instruments and most of our employees can’t even play one instrument. Maybe she is just shy about her hidden talents.
She loves to travel, especially to destinations that ooze history - for example, she dreams about attending an authentic old-style ball in Vienna.
Besides a very interesting overview of the hidden corners of Estonian history, Maibel is an ambassador to positive vibes and a good mood.

First off Maibel is the best. She took us around to multiple places that we would not have explored and tried great foods along the way. Maibel is a historian so she knows and appreciates what she it talking about. We started in the Balti Jaam Market food hall with some meats at a small shop. Next was some meat and fruit pies that were so large we shared them. They were phenomenal. We tried the curds, but they were over all not to our tastes, but we could appreciate them. We went to a place close by for the best tomato soup ever eaten. Next up was Herring at a local place. to finish off we had 2 desserts: La Muu ice cream and then a cream and berry dessert. It was wonderful, tasty and enlightening. Loved every minute.
We had a wonderful tour of Kalamaja - the former industrial area of Tallinn that is rapidly transforming into hipster centre - and along the coast by bike, followed by a walk through Tallinn's beautiful historic centre. Our guide (Maibel) is a history graduate and was extremely knowledgeable. Her English was faultless and she was extremely flexible in fitting in with our requirements. We booked our tour at very short notice and were extremely impressed with the service offered. Many thanks.
Maibel was the best. She was fun and friendly even in the shitty weather. She answered all of our questions and made us feel very comfortable. We’ve taken many tours in many cities and Maibel was tip top. Thank you for a great tour. We loved Estonia and will recommend the tour to our friends!
My husband and I did the private Best of Tallinn 4hr Bike and Walking Tour with Maibel. We walked (20-30mins) from our ship to the meeting point (right behind the Tourist Info Center) and had a great time with Maibel covering all the highlights, and lots of parks, too. She studied history in London: has excellent English and so much knowledge. Isabel was great answering all my emails and let me pre pay the amount on my credit card. I might add- I thought the price was a great bargain for 4hrs, by ourselves, with such a professional guide. I'd definitely recommend this company and certainly any tour with Maibel.
