Marju Tour Guide

Marju is an overly enthusiastic (in a good way) historian. We typecast - most of our guides are overly enthusiastic historians. She has studied in both Estonia as well as Great Britain.

Marju worked at the Museum of Architecture and as a barista before joining our company. She has also spent some time volunteering in France where she informed people of the good side of the EU - considering how the French elections went, her endeavor was a success.

She loves to travel and every penny saved goes into the world exploration fund - currently she is obsessed with anything Spanish and dreams of mastering her salsa skills and living in Central America.

One of her life goals is adopting a dog (or three). This is hindered by living in a rental flat so she passes time in her dogless rental by reviewing films for a local business newspaper (we also did not know the most popular business newspaper in Estonia also publishes film reviews).

On Marju’’s tours you can expect a lot of interesting stories about Estonian history as you should from a history buff.

Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"Unique Places, Beautiful Landscapes!"

This was a very unique experience, taking you to locations the average traveler would never see. Though I really enjoyed the tour guide, absolutely wonderful, since I did not have a lot of time to see Tallinn and Riga (only 4.5 days), I don't know if I would recommend this tour for someone on a tight time frame. The sites are pretty, especially the first one in Viljandi, but after that are a little nondescript. Certainly a great tour if you love quaint, little towns!

"Great way to see the parts between the capitals on your way!"

Great tour, amazing information about the history and area. Really gave me a better understanding of Estonia and Latvia than just passing by the capitals.

"An excellent way to see some of Latvia and Estonia"

Our guide Marju was great - nice, interesting, informative and able to answer any question she was asked, but didn't hold forth unnecessarily between stops. We had a nice small group (and I was lucky with my travel companions too) and the stops were well spaced, never too long in the minibus. Very glad I decided to do the trip and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a bit of both countries but doesn't have much time to spare.

"I didn't want it to end!"

It was a good day. The guide was smart, funny, and very beautiful. I will be visiting Daugavpils tomorrow to see the Rothko Museum and view works by the well-known Latvian/American artist; all on her suggestion! I am curious as to what other tours you offer. Thanks...it was fun.

"Nice tour for a good price"

I liked very much the tour. We had almost a little bit of everything and the lunch was really good. If I could change some things about the tour, I would like to see more about Latvia's and Estonia's traditions - from cooking to artcrafts, etc... Those curious traditions, diferents from other countries traditions. Marju is someone who can envolve everyone in the tour. She is very polite and secure of what she is talking about and always trying to make everyone feeling confortable. I've worked as a tourist guide before at Oporto (Portugal) and sometimes it was quite difficult to envolve everyone... Important thing: We didn't got late to anywhere. Everything was made on time without 'running'. I would recomend this tour to a friend.

"Great value for money!"

We had a small group on public tour - packed out day, lots to see and minimal driving between the sites. Plenty of local (and some times personal) history added by our guide that really added colour, would definitely recommend.
