Raimo -

Raimo is your Google if you happen to be on airplane mode. He is a walking-talking encyclopedia spewing facts from 90s popular culture to ancient Venenian times and anything in between.

Raimo is studying history to get to know how much we have evolved as a species. Even when he worked as an ice cream vendor, he still did it on the center of history on Old Town Square in Tallinn. He has also worked at the Museum of Occupations in Tallinn.

When Raimo is not taking you on an immersive historical journey (i.e. A tour in the Old Town), he likes to read, spend time with friends, write strange stories, study a plethora of languages or go for a jog. Among this immense amount of knowledge, he says his biggest accomplishment is knowing German grammar.

On his tours, you can of course expect a lot historical jokes. They sometimes fail miserably (just like Napoleon at Waterloo), but as long as people get a chuckle, we consider it a half-victory (unlike Napoleon at Waterloo). If you have a question, Raimo will have an answer.

"Interesting tour, great guide"

Really interesting tour which covers lots of picturesque spots in the old town but most of all Ray was a great tour guide!

"Great insightful walk"

Was lucky enough to catch this tour while we were in Tallinn. Our guide Ray was extremely knowledgable and fun; the walk lasted just under two hours taking in most of the old town as the sun set adding to the eerie feel of the tour. Highly recommended if you happen to be visiting Tallinn and are interested in an alternative guided tour.

"Tallinn in two hours! "

Ray was waiting for us as promised. He led our group of eight on an educational tour of Tallinn, keeping our interest by personalising the town's history and comparing old to new.

"Great day!"

Our guide was funny, very knowledgeable and had a grear way to make our tour fun. The time passed by so quickly and the placed he showed us were stunning. Thank you for making this a memorable day.

"Good way to learn Talinn history with a chill."

The guide is very knowledgeable with a full of scary and gory story of what medival people used to do and how they lived. He was funny and kept us entertained with various ghost stories and Tallinn myth.

"Easy tour to organize"

Very easy to organize and I was very thankful for the information and flexibility of the service. Our guide was punctual and we found him easily. The tour was easy to walk and I can recommend it to everybody. Our guide had good English and he was easy going and liked to make jokes . The atmosphere during the tour was very relaxed and our tour guide wanted to make it fun and funny. I was with my friends from New Zealand and I felt that the our guide was little bit too relaxed about the facts and information about the country and the town of Tallinn. The tour should have been more informative! The restaurant recommendation ( Irish pub) was very strange for the people who were in Tallinn only for one day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable but his style was sometimes quite irritable - people really like to get to know about the places where they travel!
