Tours Mirjam 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.
Mirjam is a genuine, kind and caring person. She has a masters degree in Japanese culture and language, spent a year in Japan perfecting her skills on the field and is now back in Estonia introducing this beautiful place to travellers.
She has a wide array of experiences from different jobs over the years - from serving tables to selling books and working in the most famous Estonian start-up and has finally settled into something she truly loves - tour guiding and translation.
Mirjam proudly admits to being a massive nerd whose pastimes include submerging into lines about Tolkien’s Shire, watching Sailor Moon and everything in between. Besides this, she has also sung in a choir for 21 years, plays board and live action role play games and enjoys huge amounts of tea.
On Mirjam’s tours you can expect a warm and fuzzy trip through history, customs and stories about the land and Estonians, of course with two scoops of dark and absurd humor every now and again.
Hear the colorful tales of Tallinn and its history without getting dizzy with the dates and figures.
Coming with a Cruise or short in time? See the Old Town and Kalamaja in just three hours.
A walk through the haunted Old Town with spooky ghost stories, legends and old myths.
Learn about Estonian culture and identity while riding through the parks and picturesque seaside.

Don't mind a bigger tour group? Free things always attract more crowd but the more the merrier.
Miriam was a native Estonian with extremely good language skills - she kept up a great commentary throughout the morning tour. We saw the major sights and did a fair amount of walking but she tuned it to our place and interests. If you were considering the package day tour from Helsinki, I'd strongly suggest this and booking your own ferry connections online - it was easy, cheaper and had better options like "comfort class" for the ferry.
Mirjam is a happy go lucky person who expertly guided our group on our walking tour. She made sure everyone was accounted for and was very accommodating. She is well experienced on Tallinn's history and culture.
The "Ghosts & Legends" tour was instructive and fun. It's also worth participating when it rains!
I enjoyed the tour very much! There were a lot of very interesting dark stories (some ghost stories, some based on actual history) about various places in the Old Town, and our guide was fun and enthusiastic throughout, throwing in many quirky details. Would definitely recommend! (Just as a note, I always love to see a guide in some sort of historical costume, but I totally get that that's often just not possible. Even so, maybe a suggestion for the future...)
The tour was a fun way to learn new facts of the city, the buildings and the history of Tallinn. We really enjoyed! Our guide was marvelous, she could really make the history alive. The tour was little over 90 minutes, which was just perfect length for a chilly night. The walk is not too long and only a moderate amount of stairs. Would highly recommend!
Highly recommend this two hour walkabout in the old town of Tallinn. Our guide Mirjam, a professional guide with extremely intresting way of telling stories, taught me many new historical and other nice-to-know detals about Tallinn. We could have listened to her stories all night! This tour was the highlight of our two day stay in town.
Our guide was superior! She met us at the ship and was very informative about the city of Tallinn. It was an enriching experience and we were so glad we hired such a competent guide!
Our group of 6 booked a walking tour of historical Tallinn. We were extremely lucky to have Miriam as our guide. She was knowledgeable about local history and mixed facts with interesting anecdotes and folk lore. Her English language skills were exceptional. When we got back to the ship we couldn’t say enough good things about the experience. I would highly recommend this company and guide
Erasmus+ Route Docs project partners from five different countries enjoyed a walking tour in Old Town a lot. During the tour we had several stops and we were given information about history, culture, events, interesting stories were told. The programme presented a balanced view about everything. We enjoyed a sense of humor of our guide Mirjam. We do recommend her!
