Tours Nils 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.
Nils is probably the most goal-oriented person on our team (the rest of us are hippies or hipsters). He is constantly setting new benchmarks for himself: currently he spends his free time learning programming to study computer systems in the near future. He plans to create his own successful tech start-up one day.
He has spent four months in Mexico teaching English. Besides volunteering during his gap year, most of his work experience comes from catering. If he mentions catering he will say he loved working with people but hated cleaning up. This points to why he likes doing tours, you don’t need to clean up afterwards (unless something goes horribly wrong). He spends his free time playing a strangely popular sport in Estonia where you play golf with a frisbee (it’s called discgolf).
Nils is an easy-going and friendly tour guide who can be insightful at one moment and hilarious at the next one. He is also the only half-Latvian tour guide in the team, we are not sure what this changes, but he is proud of the fact.
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.
Discover the Estonian food and history of Kalamaja, the bohemian district in Tallinn.
Don't mind a bigger tour group? Free things always attract more crowd but the more the merrier.
Such a great way to see Tallinn on bike and on foot. Our guide was fantastic. Gracious and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
Nils was great. Full of knowledge and able to answer all of our random and not so random questions about Talinn and Estonia. Witty and off beat at times. Steered us away from the tourist traps but hit the fundamentals.
We had a really great afternoon taking this food tour. We got lots (really lots, we couldn't even finish everything) of great, tasty food and got to know a lot about Estonian cuisine and culture. Beside this, it was also a lot of fun. Our guide Nils was really open and friendly and answered all our questions and we had interesting conversations with him and our fellow tourists. It was really like a interesting pub crawl (or better 'restaurant crawl') with a nice local guide. We would definitely recommend the tour to everyone who visits Tallinn!
This was a nice tour. We also had a wonderful guide (Nils) and beautiful weather! Niles walked us around town telling us all about Tallinn's history and culture. We had 10 people in our group and our family ranged in age from 9 to 67. He kept us all entertained and answered all our our questions.. even the kids' silly "kid questions". I recommend taking this tour.
Excellent way to spend the day to see the countryside near Tallen.
Sehr empfehlenswerte Tour mit mehreren unterschiedlichen Stationen. Jedesmal gab es was leckeres zu Essen. Nach der zweiten station waren wir schon total satt. Vielen Dank auch nochmal an unseren Guide Nils. Er hat das super gemacht und ist auf unsere persönlichen Wünsche eingegangen.
We had an excellent adventure with Niels in Tallinn. Our guide was very knowledgeable - his deep knowledge of the city and Estonia allowed him to present a mix of history and information about current life in Tallinn. Highly recommended!
I did a tour with Nils. Nils loves his city and was very knowledgeable. He had a fantastic sense of humour and kept me entertained. He was very thorough and respectable. I had only a few hours to spend and Nils helped me make the most of it. I would recommend him and would like to have him again when I return for a longer stay
