Our guide Maria was awesome. She was very attentive to our desire to stop often for photos. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Her English was very fluent and easy to understand. It was an amazing day in a place that I now love!
Talliin was quite the highlight of our Baltic Cruise. We met Mia from our ship and visited the Old Town area on foot. The history and stories were quite amazing. Mia was quite knowledgeable , funny and just very lovely. She also answered all our questions well, and showed us the best cafe to have coffee with a cinnamon roll. What more can you ask for.
It was fun traveling with Helen and Uku. Helen showed us nice spots in Tallinn and we got to know the stories behind the sights. That makes them so much more special! They were friendly and were great company. We saw glimpses of the Sound Festival. Uku showed us a great restaurant for us to grab a bite. Lastly Helen took some great photos of us!
The tour was excellent, as was the guide we had. It was a jam packed tour for a port day (part of a Baltics cruise) so the operator was amenable to customizing the tour and starting as soon as possible, first thing in the morning. The group loved the tour and, including myself, was thoroughly exhausted by the end of the tour. Will come to these guys again when I do an Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania trip!
Mia, our tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting and gave us a great tour including the history behind it. Loved it.
I had an excellent time
We spent a perfect day exploring Estonian Nature, former way of life and got to know inside infos while having lunch in a traditional restaurant :)
The day in and around the Lahemaa national park went really well. The fact that you are in a small group does not make you feel like a package tourist ;-) We saw Estonia’s biggest waterfall, walked in pine forests, visited a traditional fishing village and as a highlight of the trip we made a tour in the Viru bog, an interesting wetland. Our guide was knowledgeable both about the nature as well as history and kept us entertained during the whole trip.

Our guide picked us up at the cruise ship. We had a slight difficulty finding her because we did not realize we needed to walk outside the wire fence to find her. But she was right there on time. She took eight of us in a van, and drove us to some locations that were outside old town. She spoke excellent English, and was a safe and careful driver. She was very pleasant to spend the day with. The memorial to the persons who died in Siberia was amazing, and well worth seeing, She had an excellent grasp of the issues and history of the memorial. Seeing the presidential palace and the the other country palace we could have skipped. Just exterior views of buildings, not necessary. I would have preferred more time walking around Old Town, learning about the architecture and hearing more of the history of Estonia. Because we spent time having lunch (which we needed to do.... a midday tour), our time in town was more limited.
It was a sunny day, when our tour went to the Lahemaa National Park. That is the key point we very enjoy the trip.
A very nice day, full of discoveries. Outstanding views in the bog, very nice walk in a tiny fishermen village. We even tried an « Estonian swing »! That was a very nice experience in the nature and I recommend it.
Our guide Andres did a fantastic job of exploring the area around Tallinn as well as providing a detailed tour of the old town. Andres brought out the history, the culture and soul of the Estonians. He shared his perspective of the history of his country. The area outside of Tallinn was as fascinating as the old town. The Festival area, the Memorial and the Maritime Museum were meaningful, important sites. Kudos to him for bringing out the spirit of the country and allowing us to fall in love with the country and the people.
Really impressive trip here
We spent two hours with a very pleasant young woman named Maria seeing the key sites in the old town. She provided us with some historical perspectives that helped us to appreciate Tallinn and Estonia in general.
The guide Katharine is very nice and knowledgeable. The trip will allow you to get a real taste of Estonia's nature and know the country better.
A really great experience to visit Lahemaa. Our guide was very nice and kind. She gave lots of information about the sights, which were so beautiful. We enjoyed every second of this tour!
My family all said this was one of their favorites of our trip to Tallinn. Our guide Kert was great. Getting to see the old Soviet town, quarry/prison, abandoned base and cargo plane gave us a feel for life under the USSR rule. Getting to the coastal cliffs gave us some beautiful views.
The tour was very good. I really needed the nature time after being in the Song Festival crowds. Only issue was the rented vehicle. It had no air conditioning and had a gas leak somewhere. That made for an unpleasant drive between stops.
The tour was incredibly fun and interesting, with an excellent balance of history, culture and nature. Our guide was friendly, approachable an deeply knowledgeable.
Walking tour through Tallinn Old Town was a new experience thanks to our funny and witty guide. We didn't get bored at all. Learning new things about Tallinns recent history and hearing stuff from a local point of view was refreshing and Our guide knew a lot of things. Some of the jokes didn't land due to similarities of our countries cultures. We had fun and recommend tour with local guide to all who wants to know more about Tallinn than just historybook details.
I booked for this tour at the last minute and it was a good decision to do so. The natural beauty of the coastal cliffs and learning about Estonia in Soviet times made for an interesting day. Visiting the abandoned Murru prison quarry was a major highlight. Our lunch stop at a small restaurant/cafe was a chance to enjoy the best pastries I have ever eaten. The only reason I have not given five stars is because the tour did not visit the Padise monastery ruins as advertised - I am not sure why. Still, that apart, it was a really good day.
Julia’s discussion of the history and the architecture of Tallinn was outstanding.
Had a great time on the tour. Saw a waterfall, some manor houses, walked through a bog and on the beach by the sea, and more. Our guide explained much about the history and present of the places. Also met some interesting people as all participants were from different countries. I definitely recommend the tour, especially if you have already seen the old town.
Although the weather was not at its best we had a very enjoyable to the Lahemaa National Park and surrounding with Marju. There is a great beauty in the still ponds and lush greens of the peat bog that is an antidote to the hussle and bussle in Tallinn. We also had a walk to the coast, which is very pretty and there are not many seas where swans can be seen. Getting to use the village swing (kiiking) was a nice bonus. Marju is a very informative guide and as well as explaining what we were seing, gave us a lot of insights of what life for Estonians is really like. So if you want to clear your head and breathe in some clean air while enjoying some unusual natural environments I thoroughly recommend this tour!
Very pleasant and knowledgeable guide; well-thought out itinerary.
good service, friendly guide, a lot of information about the park and the estonian way of life and sunny whether! Great experience!
We had a nice day visiting Lahemaa with our Estonian guide, Sten, on Wednesday. We learned many things from Sten, not only history but also about nature, food, Estonian traditions, etc. We really enjoyed the hiking in Viru Bog, the town of Altja and the lunch in a traditional restaurant. It's really worth it if you want to get a real insight of this part of Estonia. Good value for money! Our trip mates from Australia, Germany and Slovenia were also fantastic, thank you all and thank you Stan!
The waterfall and the manor house are picturesque. The coastal cliff is simply spectacular, the highlight of the tour! We could spend the whole day wandering along the coast that covered with colorful wildflowers.
From the easy and punctual start in Old Town to the many interesting stops along the way this was a very well run tour. Excellent itinerary. Knowledgeable and prepared guide, Perfect weather.
The bog is an exceptionnal landscape. We appeciate the explanations about the plant and history. the restaurant was différent of the description : so we have been despite (a little) about the smoked salmon. The fisher ‘s village of Altja was very cute A visit in french would be to organize Furthermore, a flyer with explainations could help to understand
We enjoyed the private tour wit Rai. Our dedicated guide. Interesting, educating, lot of knowledge and curiosity.
The bog is very interesting. The pace is not so fast and is suitable for family with kids and senior. Hannes is also very knowledgeable about plant and history. I have good time
We had a nice, informative and funny day, pleasant company and a really likeable guide with a comfortable way of driving. Recommendation!
There is so much more to Estonia than the old town of Tallinn. It was definitely worth my while to take this amazing tour - it was a small group (four of us in total) and we saw the coast on the Gulf of Finland, a small fishing village and an impressive manor house but the big highlight was the walk through Viru Bog - it's on a narrow plank boardwalk but it's quite an easy walk with so much incredible plant life to look at. It's not necessary to be a biologist to appreciate the beauty of Lahemaa National Park. Our guide Marju was very knowledgeable and she gave us all the information we needed without it being an overload.
This tour was a great way to see the beautiful national park. The Altja area was absolutely stunning, where the eerie pine forest met the brilliant blue Baltic sea strewn with glacier-borne granite boulders. Also lunch at a local tavern was hearty and traditional. Our guide Hannes went in detail describing not only the natural beauty that we were witnessing, but also covering Estonian modern history of the last 200+ years, giving us some context around why Estonians love nature. He did it all with a great sense of Estonian dry humour. All in all a great day that I would highly recommend, even if you don't get the beautiful sunny day that we had.
A wonderful escape from town into different parts of Lahemaa National Park and time for a traditional lunch too. Easy hiking and great scenery with some culture and history too!
We had an excellent tour on 6/19/19. Very small group of 4 people plus our guide. Our guide was very informative and personable. Highly recommend if you want to learn about Estonia and see the countryside in a hassle free way.
My wife and I booked the old town bike and walking tour of Tallinn to start only a few hours after our arrival by ferry. It proved to be a great orientation to the city, as well as providing an overview of the history and culture of Estonia. Our guide, Marju, was excellent- well spoken, well informed and fun to be with. Our tour started with an easy bike ride to the eastern part of Tallinn, including the president’s house and the song fest stage, where we likely would not have visited on our own. Once back in the old town, we dropped off the bikes and continued our history lesson on foot, with a thorough coverage of the inner city. Our four hours with Marju really set us up well for the next few days in Tallinn.
The tour was very well organised, allowing me to appreciate different aspects of Estonia culture and history. My guide, Sten, was super attentive and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
A very interesting tour to the Cliffs , Country Park with Waterfall and onto Paldiski , a place that Fascinated me from afar ( Northern Ireland) A very informative Tour Guide who also took us to visit an old Russian Fighter Bomber . Not sure if our female guide was called Marju?
We did a private 4 hour biking and walking tour of Tallin with Maria as our guide during a port stop in Tallin on our Baltic Cruise. We had a wonderful day and were very pleased with our tour. It was nice to see some of the less touristy parts of Tallin as well as to tour the Old Town.
Katrin tried really hard to accomodate us. She tended to all our needs. I got to see parts of Estonia which I couklld not have seen on my own in a day. Very informative comentry. It is a part of the country that has been neglected and needs more loving. It will not blow your mind, but will give you another perspective of this beautiful country.
This tour was lead a very energetic & passionate tour guide (Andres). He took us around some very beautiful countryside and national park. Although he promised us bog monsters but I never seen any which was disappointing. He also took us to a lovely seaside restaurant for lunch which was great. Best part of the tour was to an Estonian person's house which is a Maritime museum (Excellent). I would strongly recommend this tour.
This tour was excellent. It was great to see the coastal area of Estonia which is very beautiful & quiet (great for nature lovers), and then on to a place which used to be a naval base in Soviet times (for me it had quite an eerie feel to it). The tour guide (Marju) was very friendly and answered any questions about the area & Estonia that I asked. Very pleased with this tour.
Our guide, Uku, was brilliant. He had a fantastic knowledge of his country & its history & with a great sense of humour & irony. I really enjoyed the trip. We got a good look at the countryside & coast. I just would have liked to have been shown on a map where we were visiting & the names of places. Overall, very good & good value.
Nice Tour to stunning landscape with waterfall swamps, Forest, manors ans a Village at the baltic sea. The drives between the stops were not too long, and the guide does not rush you through anything. The Restaurant was good with good prices and selection.
We had Andres as our guild and requested to go out to visit some of the lesser known places, He took us around to all of them and much more. Had great suggestions and after drove us back to the old town for a historical walking tour. He spoke English very will with a cool accent. :) Couldn’t have asked for anything better!
Our guided tour was funny. Sometimes, however, we would have wished for a little more seriousness. E.g. for our taste the remarks about the medieval executions were too many fun stories and also too extensive - one joke about these sad topic would have been enough. Nevertheless we enjoyed the tour and we say thank you to our tour guide.
100 % recomendable. Sólo por hacer el camino de Viru Bog ya merece la pena, el guía acompaña al grupo una parte del camino y después da un margen amplio de tiempo para que lo termines por tu cuenta, además tuvimos suerte porque aunque nos hizo mal tiempo apenas nos cruzamos con nadie, y eso hizo la experiencia mucho más auténtica. Para mí lo mejor del recorrido el pantano y las casitas de Altja. Por pedir algo más me hubiese gustado visitar la Manor House por dentro, la visita es sólo exterior. El guía un encanto, muy atento y proporciona mucha información de lo que se va viendo, sin la cual la experiencia no sería tan interesante.
Marju was great explaining and answering our questions and looked after our needs as my wife has angina. There was just the two of us. This tour was recommended by another guide as it was very relaxing but took in lovely countryside and sea. Marju took us to a lovely cafe for lunch which was inexpensive but great choice and quality of food
The tour was great and our guide Helen was an absolute delight. Her stories and storytelling really brought the spooky history back to life. Thank you so much!
Laid-back, fun trip to Lahemaa NP, in which you get to see a lot of different environments/areas. For me perfect way to be in nature and get out of the city for a day.
We had a very good tour of Tallinn Old Town with Helen. She did an amazing job explaining Estonian history and the significance of things we were seeing. We had a personal tour with her, which I would highly recommend. Beyond seeing the key points in the Old Town, she gave us great advice on other places to see in Tallinn on our trip. I'd also state that she is passionate about her country and her town and this really translates in her tour.
Our guide, Ray, was excellent. On this tour, you will learn things you will not learn on a regular walking tour. You find out about the dark history of the buildings you have passed. These legends are based on history and told in a fun easy way to understand. This tour would be engaging for teenagers as well. Ray, who is an historian, was also able to answer various questions we had about Tallinn and Estonian history that were not related to ghosts and legends which was an added bonus.
Great trip, guides (split group in two) very knowledgeable. OK so end of that. Personality of Andres was fantastic, really filled in the day both with humor and environmental/historical information in a lively manner. Gregor also gave his insights on Estonian life from a slightly different view- good team. The forest/ bog environment and the historical info was fascinating. Highly recommend this tour
The tour was great. We had 4 or 5 stops, very interesting places and the tour guide was friendly and told us different things at the different stops. Highlight was our meal in a museum. Thank you for everything
This was exactly the experience we were hoping for — a chance to see some interesting, beautiful, historic and quirky things in and about Estonia. The guide was great, the itinerary is smart and gave us exposure to a lot during the day. Absolutely worth it!
After a day or two in the Old City of Tallinn, it is good to see the other and more genuine side of Estonia - its nature and peacefulness. The day trip was truly enjoyable and the memories will stay for life! Even the bad weather could not stop anyone from enjoying the stroll through the Lahemaa's bog, forests, and shores. Combined with a friendly and knowledgeable guide, comfy car, and umbrellas waiting to save those who are less accustomed to pouring rain, there was nothing that could be better! Highly recommended to anyone who loves to step off the beaten track.

We spent 3 hours with Maria in a walking tour and it really made our brief stay in Tallinn enjoyable. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Showed us everything we wanted to see and more.
A great guide. Charming, pleasant, practical. Offered interesting comments,when asked, about larger socio-cultural patterns in Estonia as well as excellent short summaries from nature to history. A nice man. By chance a great, as well as diverse, group. PS Guide's name. I didn't take in. Thurs 24 to Laheema ...tall young man.
We had a great time to discover the nature and also culture of Lahemaa region, our guide Katrin is very warm and knowledgeable person. Love this tour and definitely recommend this tour!
This tour involves surprisingly little driving for a unique and varied experience. From viewing an 18th century manor house built on the fruits of serfdom and the timber, spirits and brick trade, to seeing the reemergence of the freedom to fish after Soviet times, we walked through a forest and an eerie bog, enjoying wildflowers along the way. All this was punctuated by a delicious home cooked meal where the owners have displayed memorabilia collected by their antecedents over many generations. Our guide was knowledgeable, accommodating, informative, communicative, helpful, empathic and had extraordinary competency in English as a second language. I found this tour to be an excellent day out and can unreservedly recommend it.
With blue sky and warm spring weather we started our beautiful trip through the Laheema national park. Our guide Uku was very friendly and besides explaining the various sites we visited, he was even up to chatting about Estonia and answering every question we had. Its not everyday you get such a nice guide. We especially liked our little hike through the bog. Also worth mentioning was our meal at a local restaurant. Tasty meals and good prices. We would totaly recommend anyone to take this tour. See you hopefully again beautiful Estonia!
The "Ghosts & Legends" tour was instructive and fun. It's also worth participating when it rains!
Would definitely recommend if you are visiting Estonia.
Great guides this year too! Perfect
I never thought I could be so funny to go hiking with eight strangers from different countries. But I had an awesome day!! Andres was an amazing guide, told us a lot about everything and knew answers to nearly every question. We visited nearly everything I had on my personal list of places I wanted to see and I couldn't be happier about it. The lunch was really tasty too and I could also choose a vegetarian one which I really preferred because I don't like fish. There was plenty of time to discover every place we visited and when it was over after nine hours I felt like we just had started. I would definitely recommend and do it again!
The day was super-easy, relaxed and enjoyable. Our tour guide Andres was really informative and enthusiastic, and the day was well-organised and professional. Really recommend this company if you want to get out and about and see a bit more of this wonderful country!
There was a lot of good information passed on and many things to see and understand. Just went over my photos and am happy with the results. Guide and guide helper were both down to earth and made sure we were gettng it. Both are obviously proud of their country and like showing it off.
Ray was a wonderful guide. Funny, informative and quite knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour and highly recommend it. Now we know where Tallin is and even a little bit about Estonia!
We had two guides for this tour who were both excellent and complementary. Got to see a lot on a perfect weather day. What a joy to be out of the city for a day. Had a delicious lunch at the maritime museum. Learned a lot. And they accommodated my mobility issues as well, so that I only skipped one walk later in the day.
What an incredibly enriching experience! Estonia is so much more than Tallinn, as this tour so expertly and entertainingly shows. We were graced with some good weather but I would have enjoyed this trip even in the pouring rain. We got to see Estonia’s tallest waterfall (I won’t spoil the height, but keep in mind that any waterfall is a miracle in the flat Baltics), the miraculous and ancient bogs, restored and unrestored manor houses, and some amazing coastal villages that shed light on life outside of the city both past and present. All was supplemented by the riveting and impossibly vast knowledge of Andres, whose expertise made this trip particularly special. I plan to return to Estonia to be able to experience more of these trips and see what else this magical country has to offer!
Kerr did a great job showing us a lot near and around Narva. He explained the history well and as we were on a private tour he also adapted the schedule when we asked to visit an additional site. It was a great day!
Very interesting tour, our guide was excellent and we went to many places. Would have liked to have a bit longer in Narva. It was a long day.
I had an absolutely amazing time on this tour! Booking was incredibly easy, then we headed out in a large and comfortable van. The group was small so our guide easily customized it to some of our interests. Having a guide for the abandoned Soviet sites is necessary - there is so much to see. Andres also knew the best spots to see the underwater prison from! I really highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in the Cold War, as well as a desire to see the ocean.
Guide was excellent and took us to many places. She was very helpful and knowledgable. Unfortunately I can't remember her name.
I had an excellent tour guide Krislin. Her native town was Kohtla-Järve and she gave us a lot of information about this eastern part of Estonia. Many thanks! The tour is an excellent mixture of old (Toolse fortress, Narva castle+memorial of 1700 battle) and new history (WWII, Soviet era) together with industrial heritage (oil shale mining, Kreenholm factory). A contract of walking in a "ghost town" and in Sillamäe was unbelievable. The distance of 210 km gave me a perspective of a size of Estonia and of her fields and woods which we were passing.
Second time lucky taking this tour. Glad I made it this time. The whole day was interesting. Especially the walk through the wetlands and the sea museum. Our guide JJ was Personable and had good knowledge of Estonia. I particular liked the options and flexibility he offered.
This tour was a great way to see nature outside of Tallinn, both in terms of the walk through the bog and a couple visits to different parts of the coast, Jevgeni did a great job!
We discovered interesting historical places along with beautiful views of beaches, a cliff and a waterfall. The guide explained in a very clear way the history and the most important events of Estonia that are mandatory to get know if you travel to this region. I strongly recommend to take this tour if you travel to Tallin/Estonia.
I really enjoyed this tour. Andres was very knowledgeable about the different places we visited. He also took us to a part of an old Soviet base to see some specific he talked about. His perspective on the recent history of Estonia made the tour even more interesting. I would highly recommend this tour and Andres as a tour guide.
Spectacular tour just outside Tallinn. We visited the bogs (astonishing colors and landscapes), a waterfall, the forest and the seaside, with stops at a fisherman village and an historic palace. The guide was very knowledgeable and enjoyable, the walks easy and balanced. Strongly suggested!
Buena organización, recogiendo los principales puntos fuertes del parque. Quizás eché de menos un poco más de senderismo a través del parque, pero para una jornada estuvo bien. El guía aporta mucho a la dinámica del grupo y la excursión.
The guide was very prepared and made us enjoy our tour! My advice is: do it because it's worth it!
Was a Great Tour with cool and top guide Marju and helps fromSigrid as we had to Drive in two Cars as a big Group! Russland Food was great. Helpfulminformation and a lot of History with Scenic coast interestings and surprising Spots ! Thanks for this experience!
It’s not what I expected- it’s better! My guide is professional and enthusiastic so I learn so much about not just the park but also the history of Estonia. The lunch is also a surprise.
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...)
A little bit expensive but it’s worth it! There are a lot of stops and every place of the tour is amazing.
Wonderful day in the national park. We were lucky with the weather so we had the chance to enjoy even more this great experience. The guide was amazing. Very nice and funny taking time to share with us her knowledges of Estonia. I truly recommend this visit outside Tallinn. It gives the possibility to discover more this beautiful country
Andres was good company and his insight on the estonian way of life added a lot to the experience. The 50€ was totally worth it. The places we visited were inpiring, offered a lot of variety and the small size of the group helped to keep the stress level down. The day was very relaxing and rewarding in many ways.
Marju took us on a tour of Haapsalu and West Coast. The weather was beautiful with blue sky and a brisk wind (Wrap off warm against the wind!) First stop was the rail station with abandoned Soviet trains, which was a reminder of the control and grandiose of the past, as well as the Soviet regime. We saw some lovely landscape at the North West of Estonia, and a picture postcard town of Haapsalu. There were some interesting medieval forts and ruins with ghost stories (The White Lady!) too. Marju took us to a fabulous cafe in Haapsalu for lunch. Here we were served the dish of the day and the loveliest cheesecake by a patient and friendly lady manager. We liked this tour - it was enhanced by Marju's personal experience of the Soviet, and her passion and interest in the state of the country and the EU. We thank you for a great Estonia experience!
Despite the cold and rainy weather this was a really fun and interesting tour. Haapsalu is beautiful.
The tour was very interesting and a lot of fun. Kert is an amazing guide.
There were four of us on this tour with Marju, a very knowledgeable and patient guide. We saw an amber waterfall at Jagala, enjoyed an unique hike through Lahemaa's bogland, an atmospheric old 'German' manor house, a typical seaside village with a 'pub' and swing, and visited a quirky maritime museum with a Soviet watchtower on the coast. Lunch was at a traditional pub serving typical food. All in all, it was a great day out seeing a great deal of this part of Estonia. Marju told us about its history, heritage and the natural landscape. Varied, interesting and full schedule....
We went on two tours with this company: a free historical walking tour and a paid ghost tour. The tour guides are very knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. Both tours were different and had almost no overlap, so it was nice to go on both to get different experiences and see more of the city.
It was a really great day trip to unusual sights if that what you like! The coastal views, the prison, the waterfalls and ex Soviet history, it was all amazing and Kert's extensive knowledge of the areas and history was brilliant!! Pick up and drop off were timely and lovely stops for breaks too. Thank you!!
We enjoyed a winter-Lahemaa very much. The guided tour was excellent and informative, not only about nature and scenery, but also historical and socio-cultural backgrounds.
Apart from able to visit and participate in the Viru Bogs at Lahemaa National Park, I get to understand and know more about Estonians and their way of life from a local tour guide, those information and stories are really interesting and priceless! The guide also brought us to a private museum which is a true sailor’s home, which makes the trip very personal and memorable! I would highly recommend this day tour!
Marju was a great guide and host; she has a fresh and positive energy and is very knowledgeable of Estonian history and culture. The sights visited were beautiful... a taste of Estonia beyond Tallinn, which makes you want to see more of this enchanted country.
We had a great day out with Jevgeni on the 26th December 2018. It was so lovely to see a range of landscapes in and around Laheema across the day, especially with someone who knows the way and is used to driving in the snow. Jevgeni was an entertaining and informative guide, and we especially enjoyed the stop at the kiiking swing and the amazing lunch at the Kasmu captain's cottage.
We had an amazing time on the tour. The day itself was perfectly balanced between the various activities/sights. Liine was an incredible guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and her stories about Estonian folk tales were really interesting. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Tallinn.
Fui a Coastal Cliffs. Estaba frío pero había un lindo sol que nos permitió disfrutar de los acantilados y la cascada de Keila. La guía fue excelente, muy amable.
Our group was only made of four people incl. our guide. Kert is a jung very openminded guy. He had a lot of information and knew perfectly how to entertain our little group. The weather was just great. The sun was shining and we had warm temperatures. The melting waterfall, the hike through the wetlands and having a look to that quirky museum at the beach was just wonderful. I absolutely recommend you to do that tour!
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!
The winter version of this tour rocked! Petting a frozen waterfall, hiking through softly silent snowtopped pine tree forests, making our way through the mysterious bog, visiting a lovely small maritime museum with original owners running it and still getting a beautiful coastal sunset view of glacial rocks by the shore. I’m very happy to have taken this tour, super comfortable with good amount of hiking. Jevgeni is a great guide, very local, down to earth, openminded and keen to adjust according to the group’s needs and ideas. On top of that, good humour with good knowledge of all sorts of things. Thank you again! Don’t forget to bring cash for onsite food/snack purchases!
Marju was a fantastic tour guide who had great knowledge of Tallin and Estonia. The 3 hours was perfectly timed and we covered lots of sites. We would highly recommend.
Experience is good
Really lovely people to deal with and they were super helpful as it was a slow time of the year! This gives beautiful scenic views and aome very interesting history. The guides are young and vibrant and I have athritis in my foot so a bit slow and not qyite sure on my feet and our guide was brilliant and ever so helpful and understanding! Totally recommend
light hearted but exciting and interesting tour of the Old Town at night - and the various horrors that have befallen many an unlucky person over the centuries!
My husband and I took the Laheema National Park daytrip. The first thing I liked about it was that it was a small group tour. We had six people all together, and the maximum per tour is eight. Our guide, Andreas, was very knowledgeable and personable. We got to see some lovely sights including the national park, manor homes, and the seaside. We ate lunch at the quirky maritime museum: fresh salmon, potatoes, brown bread, and apple cake prepared by the proprietors, who lived in the museum (we also got to meet their adorable dogs). I would recommend this tour to anybody.
Definitely worth taking this tour. Great day out. Guide was really knowledgeable and whole day was really informative. I went in winter but I would definitely do this tour again in summer to see another side to the park
Liked the walk in the National Park, the guide and the lunch and the waterfall Day was bit too long as went to other places didn't need to like a museum at the seaside
Petit groupe de 7 personnes très sympathiques. Guide très compétente et très agréable. Un tour dépaysant et intéressant à ne pas manquer.
We took the tour on New Year's Eve with Andres as our guide. He was great & shared loads of interesting details about life in Estonia throughout the day. The lunch was delicious, the board walk was snowy & scenic and there was a lot of variety in this tour. I'd happily recommend it.
We booked this tour very much at the last minute, and we were so glad we did! There was only one other person on the tour, so it definitely didn't feel like too large a group. Jaan was absolutely lovely, and really knowledgeable – as well as being really patient in answering all of our questions. The highlights of the day for me were walking across the Viru bog, which was beautiful, and visiting the coast. Thank you so much for a wonderful tour!
The tour was great and well-run! Love the beautiful scenery of the forests. Being in a small group also means there's more interaction and flexibility. Thanks Andres!
Our tour guide was very engaging and informative. Our teens enjoyed asking questions about Tallinn's history and Estonia's lifestyle. She was mindful of our time and diet constraints and helped us find a great restaurant after the tour was over. All of us had a wonderful time and will cherish the pleasant memories of Tallinn. Thank you
This was such an interesting and informative tour. As we were only in Tallinn for a few days we wanted a tour that would encompass as much as possible . This certainly did, we saw so much and learnt so much history from our guide who was so knowledgable. We had a wonderful time and was money well spent.
We had a great day with Kert and especially enjoyed the abandoned town, which looked great in the snow! It's a long day but there's plenty to see and it's an excellent way to see a bit more of the country outside Tallinn. Kert was a nice guy and a great driver too!
Tallinn is such a charming town and we are so happy we made the day trip from Helsinki to visit Tallinn in Dec 2018. Our guide Kert is a knowledgeable, warm and accomodating guide who is patient even with little children. He was friendly and fabulous and took great care of us. He showed us around Tallinn Old Town the way a local could and we wish we have more time to explore more of Tallinn. We couldn't recommend this walking tour enough. Thanks Kert!
The guide took us to Estonia biggest waterfall and then to the magic Lahemaa National Park. After a typical Estonian lunch we visited a Manor House and a fishing village by the sea, with a very interesting stop at Kasmu museum. Andres was very passionate and knowledgeable and made our day in nature an unforgettable one.
Really interesting tour which covers lots of picturesque spots in the old town but most of all Ray was a great tour guide!
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.
Wonderful experience of the Estonian countryside and heritage with very joyful and knowledgeable guide (Jevgeni)!
We saw a lot of things that we can't see without your trip. We saw a part of Estonian land different from Tallinn. Our guide Marju was great and very professional, she told us a lot of things about history, people and tradition of Estonian country. We also had a very good lunch in a very beautiful small restaurant in Haapsalu. Congratulations for your organisation of the trip and for the best guide MARJU!!!! I'll suggest TRAVELLER.EE to all my friends that will come in Tallinn.
This really was a terrific tour through some of the highlights of the Lahemaa National Park. Marju was a brilliant guide - knowledgeable and funny, and all of the stops were really interesting - a welcomed break from the streets of Tallinn. Would strongly recommend - particularly the option of a delicious lunch at the Fishing Village museum. The highlight of our trip to Estonia - thank you so much - particularly to Marju! Diolch!
The national park was unique and intriguing. Helpful and friendly tour guide, who offered interesting information about the park. Very good lunch. Nice experience.
As an expert in History, Marju could tell us a lot about old Estonia in general and about all the places we visited: the former Sovjet military town Paldiski, the ruins of the old monastery in Padise, the Sovjet transport airplane and the Murru prison quarry. We also got a lot of fun information about Estonians. An absolut fantastic tour!
A great trip if you want to see something of Estonias countryside! Nice stop at the Jägala waterfall (the biggest waterfall in Estonia), walking through the Viru bog and the wetlands, hike along the coast in Altja and an interesting stop at Käsmu village with the private maritime Museum. We learned a lot about the country and its people from our guide.
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.
We had the awesome JJ take us around the beautiful Lahemaa National Park. Everything about the tour was great - from the two walks along the coast and the bog, to the delicious lunch and manor houses. JJ was a fantastic guide - knowledgeable, funny and attentive. If you were to do one tour in Estonia, it has to be this!
It was great to see all the outdoor beauty that exists in Estonia. Plus you learn about the local nature and a bit of history about the country.
The trip gave an overview of Estonian landscape and history, mainly from the Soviet domination times
Though Tallinn is absolutely lovely, I was eager to experience some of Estonia's famous nature! This day trip to Lahemaa National Park did the trick! Although it was chilly and rainy, our little group still had a great time. The bog walk is absolutely beautiful, and our other stops provided a diverse set of experiences and views. Plus, Andres was a knowledgeable, friendly, and funny guide. It was a great trip, and I'll happily take another day trip with Traveller if and when (!) I return to Estonia.
The stories give an interesting look into Estonian culture. The stories are a mix of ghost stories and darker historical anecdotes but regardless of whether they were fact or fiction, I learned more about how Estonians view themselves and their city.
Hindrek told a lot about the sightseeing, but also about Estiona itselfs. Hindrek told it on a very interesting way and was very well known en could almost give answer to all our questions. He told us also al lot about the history of Estiona and the Estonia society. Thank you for the very good tourguide!
This was a really nice trip through a fantastic nature park, forest and along the sea. It's a must. Group of 12 with 2 guides.
So peaceful out there and i really enjoyed to escape the city. Wish I could stay longer. Thanx to Andres for making this day so amazing with his lovely episodes about the estonien und their beautiful nature and traditions. All the best and keeps it up!
We loved this tour- our guide did a fantastic job customizing this to our needs and making sure we did not get stuck with the crowds
We scheduled a 2-hour walking tour. Julia was very good and informative about the history of the city and its architecture. Unfortunately, it was a very rainy Sept 17 when we were in the town. The only suggestion from our group was we did not get inside any buildings, except for one church which only teachers or pastors were permitted in the altar area. I should have been more specific about what we would see and if it included going inside (other than those that had an entrance fee). Generally, under the weather circumstances, Julia was very interesting and fun. She led us to a great Tallin eatery for lunch for bread and soup to warm us up!
I had never been to Estonia and knew very little about its history, so this tour was incredibly interesting. The pick-up spot is very conveniently located near the town square, and the mini-bus that was used was very comfortable despite being completely full! The sea cliffs and the waterfall/park were beautiful. The various stops that highlighted the Soviet history of the country were incredible, as well - especially the old Soviet base that had been abandoned in the early 90s. I'm so glad I found this tour online - I really think it was a unique trip that most people who are visiting Tallinn for a short period wouldn't get to experience. I highly recommend!
The tour is a very good mix of Estonian nature (cliffs) and history (ruins of a monastery) as well as a distant Russian past (Peter the Great) and not so distant (ruins of a Russian air-missile base, an Antonov cargo plane).
I booked this tour so that t could experience a bit more of Estonia outside of Tallinn. We were driven to the park and saw some beautiful examples of nature. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable and she made everyone welcome. I would certainly recommend this experience.
It not only for national park touring, but also could see more northern estonian contry side view. The guild was professional, they would like to share many things about Estonia.
It not only for national park touring, but also could see more northern estonian contry side view. The guild was professional, they would like to share many things about Estonia.
A fun and interesting day out in Lahemaa National park. Our guide Andres took us to Estonia’s largest waterfalls, an old manor house, a few fishing villages and on a walk across a bog. Throughout the tour we learned a lot about Estonian culture and history as well as details about how traditional houses were built and the local flora and fauna. We stopped for lunch at a homestead that claims to make the best smoked fish in the world - I am inclined to agree! All in all a fun day out that just flew by and excellent value for money.
It was very interesting to visit the national park. The trip was well organized, informative and fun. I believe it was such a great trip due to our guide Liine. She was extremely knowledgeable and informative. However, she should get six stars for her wonderful personality and outstanding sense of humor. She made our day absolutely awesome! Thank you Liine!!!!
This day trip provides a unique opportunity to see a very important side of Estonian life and countryside. Loved the fact that the group was small and we could have a more intimate experience with the environment and people. Andres was an engaging and very knowledgeable guide. Highlights for me were the bog walk and lunch.
Excellent full day tour (10 AM to 7 PM) to Lahemaa National Park that I would highly recommend for adults of all ages. Groups of 8 participants were self-formed for each van (there were 3 vans total the day of my tour) which had its own guide. There was a variety of activities which included visiting an historic manor house, hiking along the Bay of Finland and adjoining forest, visiting the highest waterfall in Estonia (height hint: remember that Estonia is basically flat), walking through the bogs on wooden planks, participating in a thrilling group swing, and enjoying a group lunch (additional cost) of salmon within the Park. Liine was the most amazing guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and enthusiastic. I asked her many questions regarding events in Estonia's history and all of her responses were thoughtful and comprehensive. I learned so much about Estonia as well as about the National Park from Liine's detailed responses to my questions. The sites visited on this tour along with the information and humor provided by our guide Liine were for me the highlights of my 5 days spent in Estonia.
Thank you Marju. Because of your passion we have learned so much of the history of your country. It was an excellent day in your company.
Hindrek was a calm guide but extremely knowledgable and able to bring the history (and political landscape) of Estonia in a very vivid way to the tourists. Enjoyed it a lot
We took a private tour asking to make it shorter. Our guide was so flexible and checked with our preference. He also provided detailed chats on Estonian history. We highly recommend the tour.
Loved Tallinn, the number of tourists is incredible, streets were blocked, I felt there should be sheep dogs to herd them along LOL! As we were on a private tour our guide Jelena kept us ahead of the pack and seemed to know where to be to avoid the worst crowds. She was friendly and knowledgeable. I was sad to see people taking photos during Mass at the Orthodox Church, others were talking. I think the church should be closed during services, after all they are not charging an entrance fee.
Je recommande vivement de choisir Traveller.ee pour visiter le parc national de Lahemaa. Cela permet de visiter plusieurs lieux connus à l'aide d'un guide qui nous emmène rapidement d'un site vers l'autre. J'étais avec Marju qui est une excellente guide. Ce jour nous sommes sorties à 3 mini bus de 8 personnes avec 2 autres guides également très sympathiques. Ce fût vraiment très intéressant de pouvoir s'appuyer sur la compétence de ces guides plutôt que tout rechercher par soi-même et risquer de manquer des informations ou histoires utiles. Pour 13€ vous déjeunerez aussi dans le musée des pêcheurs de Käsmu si vous en avez la chance. Le repas est préparé par la famille du propriétaire et est vraiment excellent. Je recommande vivement cette journée et reviendrai probablement lors de mon prochain séjour en Estonie!
I joined the Lahemaa Park tour in September. We enjoyed lovely weather and our enthusiastic guide Jevgeni gave us an excellent outlook on Estonian history, how Estonia became what it is today. We visited manor houses, a lovely village and had a beautiful walk through Viru bog. Autumn yellows showed in the bog grasses and reflected in the water, together with a blue sky. It was a great day out!
This was a very interesting tour, looking back at life in Soviet times and how it has changed. Liine, our guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt so much about the past. Being able to stare into Russia from the very interesting Narva castle was a memorable experience. The trip is long but we stopped regularly in various places, where Liine explained their significant stories.
Best day tour I ever had to the Lahemaa National Park! Super fun and our guide Liine was super duper informative and fun! Thanks for the wonderful one day we had in Tallinn!
Laura was as enthusiastic as she was knowledgeable about all things Estonia! She took us to beautiful scenic views along the Baltic Sea, the lovely old manor houses, the monastic ruins and many other must-sees. The hike in Keila Vald along the waterfalls was a lovely break from the drive; Laura included a brief history lesson. She also included a few local offbeat places like an old Russian bunker and cargo plane, now used as a meeting place for the local teen flying club. With Laura’s expertise and great driving, it was a very enjoyable day well-spent!
Young energetic guide, totally into wanting everyone to have a great time. We had a fascinating 2 hour walk around the city listening to intriguing tales of Tallinn
We loved being taken through Lahemaa National Park by Hindrek (partly shared talking with Jevgeni who was also great pleasure!). We couldn’t imagine a more knowledgeable and fun guide to be with. We saw manors and villages, beautiful and quiet beaches and forests, we walked the bug and heard about Estonian history both in an informative and enjoyable way. To be recommended!!
Our guide was Hindrek and he was tremendous. He was highly informed about each area we visited, he had detailed answers to all of our questions, and he worked hard to make sure that we enjoyed our trip. He took the time to explain the region to us and he was never in a rush. The trip lasted longer than planned because he let us enjoy each site visit as long as we wished.
This was a great way of exploring the sights and cultural history of Estonia beyond the city walls. A whirlwind trip through the countryside including old manor houses, waterfall, the bog boardwalk and hidden beaches. Lunch was excellent at the captains village, sitting in the family's dining room full of heritage and atmosphere. Thanks to Katherine our guide who made the day a great success and I left Estonia promising to come back for longer next time!
Andreas picked us up from our accommodations in Tallinn. We drove NW and visited a beach, coastal cliffs, a waterfall, a lighthouse, an abandoned prison, an abandoned monastery, and viewed a number of manor houses. And finally we visited an old Soviet cargo ship sitting in a field! Andreas provided much historical information and answered our questions, including a request to explain the political environment. Very enjoyable tour.
This tour took us to a lot of places in the National Park. We saw everything that was advertised, which made us very happy. Our tour guide knew very much about the area, but also about Estonia in general. She even shared personal experiences of living in Estonia, which gave us a nice idea about growing up there. We were impressed with her knowledge! And she was able to deliver it in an interesting, humorous way, which was great. Would definitely recommend it!
We were honored to have Liine as a tour guide for a short time in Tallinn. She was an absolute delight and we enjoyed spending time with her. She was extremely knowledgeable of Tallinn and the highlights of the city. Her wit and charm was infectious. I would highly recommend anyone going to Tallinn to sign up with Liine and use www.traveller.ee to book a tour. The entire staff has been supportive and attentive to our request. Our responses were quickly answered and addressed. To be honest, 5 stars is not enough to give Liine and Traveller.ee - they deserve 10 stars. Thank you for making our experience in Tallinn a special memory.
Everything was great right from the start. I had some problems during the booking process but Janne and Heleene helped me a lot. Our guide, Hindrek, led us to many places and he was always ready to answer our questions. He talked about Estonian history, language, food and many other things. The bogs were my favourite part of the tour. The food was also delicious :)
Great solo tour with Kert to the northeast of Estonia. A fascinating day of history both ancient and recent in a beautiful part of Europe. So much to see and do in a land of contrasts. Expect your preconceptions to be challenged, and enjoy a fun day out. Kert is an exceptional guide - knowledgeable, witty, accommodating and fun.
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.
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.
I like all the visited places which give (in a nushell) a view over Estonia. Andres was very kind and answered all questions about Estonian history and living. I can this tour fully recommend.
Being from the USA I was skeptical of communicating with a company with an email ending in .ee. But I was proven so wrong. All my emails were answered clearly and promptly usually within a few hours. I was so impressed and this made me comfortable to book the tour. Upon arrival at the cruise port we were immediately greeted by Andres our guide. Andres was great!! He took us everywhere we wanted to go and then some. His explanations were clear and his knowledge about the area and its history was expansive. We started off driving to the various places then walked within the city. Although the tour was technically over Andres then drove us back to the ship. Once back on board our ship we compared notes with other passengers and found that we saw and did twice as much as any of them. Wow. Such a great value! I would absolutely recommend Traveller Tours again and again.
If you have time, this is probably the best way to travel to Riga, discovering places you would never visit otherway! Our guide Mike was very enthusiastic about his country and he delighted us with some Latvian songs during the tour. Enjoyable also the lunch stop!
Not only nature, despite of what we expected from the name! During the visits at the manors, our guide gave us a 360° vision of Estonian history, without being boring. Very nice the lunch at the house, with local food and a peaceful moment to spent in front of the sea. Thank you!
This is a fun tour with plenty of time to stroll along the bogwalk. Our guides, Andres and Yann were really knowledgeable and full of fun stories. Highly recommend.
Very nice Tour. Good Details about the City. Thank you for the two hours walk with interesting informations.
Maybe rename the tour, because our expectation was that it is more focused on the bog and the natuer but this was only a small part of it. Lunch was definetly a highlight. We enjoed every programme point very much.
A day outdoors was the perfect way to end our tip. Our guide was exceptionally well informed and we learned a lot about Estonian history, language & culture as well as the biology of the bog forest. Lunch at the Captain's village was delicious and a wonderful Estonian "at home" experience. Not to be missed!
We will always remember Tallinn as our guide made sure we saw everything. We really enjoyed the ambience of the city.
Had a really nice tour with Laura. She was very knowledgeable. Also, great sights on the way. Highly recommend this tour.
The Coastal Cliffs tour was probably the most interesting day in my entire Baltics trip! Hindrek was familiar with the whole area and gave us history and information the entire day! He went above and beyond what I imagined. We saw nature (cliffs and waterfalls) and everything history, from WWII to Soviet Union to a monastery to Estonian underground bunkers! Honestly, you haven't really experienced Estonia until you go on this tour and see the history and nature of the countryside. 10/10 Recommend!
This day tour was even better than I expected, our Estonian guide George was really great and made things interesting. The tour bus was nice and comfortable and all of the stops throughout the day were great- I loved getting to try out a traditional Estonian swing, having lunch at a local place by the beach and of course the walk through the bog in the national park was such incredible natural beauty.
Well organised tour with a great tourguide who knew lots of interesting facts about the park and Estonia in general. Also a great car driver. We are very happy to have had this great experience! Thanks a lot.
This was a very interesting day trip as our guide explained a lot about Estonian history and she gave us plenty of details about all the places we were at. Though the day was rainy we had a lot of fun and I enjoyed my time very much.
We spent a great day with our lively and entertaining guide Liine visiting several sites in the Nationalpark (waterfall, bog, seashore and a museum). We learned a lot about estonia and the estonian language. It was a great contrast after spending several days in the city, we definitively recommend it!
By visiting the spots of nature and sowjet relicts with our estonian guide we understand and felt the problems and solutions of this old and young society. Thank you so much
The tour was lovely, and a good chance to explore a different part of the country, than just Tallinn, or the cities. After some uncertainty as to if the tour would go ahead at the time of booking, the small group was a good size. There were 4 of us in the van, so it was easy to hear information, and be able to ask questions. Marju, our guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the country and history. She was warm and engaging, and interested in the stories of the group members as well. Highly recommended.
We chose Coastal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski as we thought our teenage boys would find this the most interesting tour and it would give us all an insight into the history of Estonia. Kristel, our lovely guide, was fantastic! She drove us safely round a wide range of sights and was a mine of information. As expected, our boys found the prison quarry, bunkers, lighthouse, cargo plane and history of Paldiski very interesting. The tour had frequent stops - none of the sections of driving were more than about 20 minutes. Overall, a great day out - and perfect way to avoid the crowds in Tallin on the busiest day for cruise ships in the summer! We arrived back in the town centre late afternoon, just as the tourists were heading off - giving us a lovely quiet evening to explore the old town.
This is the first day trip in my holidays in Tallin and I had such an amazing day! Our guide was nice and explained a lot of funny and interesting stuff. We walked in the woods, we saw many places and have plenty of time to wander and take picture. Lunch in a nice guest house was delicious. Anything perfect! Thank you for that wonderful day
Such a great way to see Tallinn on bike and on foot. Our guide was fantastic. Gracious and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
He tour to Lahemaa Nationalpark shows the perfect nature and wonderful places. Our guide, Laura, was very kind and she knew mostly everything about Estonia. My favorite place was Käsmu and the little museum.
If you enjoy awesome landscapes, you will just love it ! (short car ride, nice walks into the park, tasty lunch and lively explanations from our guide)
I did the tour with Kätlin, who is really nice and told us a lot about Laheema and many interesting and fun facts!! She showed us many different places. The smoked salmon we had for lunch was excellent. I recommend :)
Beautiful views, many interesting stories from The Best Guide Ever Katlin ♡ that was one of my lifetime experiences.
Over 9hrs of information, travelling, walking, exploring, lunch and enjoyment. Would recommend the tour.
My partner and I did several Traveller tours. I love a chance to escape outdoors and this was the tour I was most looking forward to! Although you could certainly visit the Lahemaa National Park on your own if you hired a car, the tour has been designed to take you to all the best bits. I am glad we decided not to do it ourselves, as the best part of the tour was our tour guide. Jaan and the guides we had are passionate about history. Rather than rattle off facts you will never remember, they use humour or personal stories to help you understand the history of their country. We just couldn't possibly appreciate the places we were visiting without their knowledge of history and the local area. Riding the Estonian swing, wandering through the bog and eating smoked salmon in a traditional fishing village are memories I will keep forever. Thank you.
It is a day tour that worth to be done. If I can suggest an improving, I would reduce the number of the manors visited and I would spend more time to the visit of the bog, that is a spectacular walk in a very particular environment!
We so enjoyed our tour, our guide Christian was both informative and amusing. He bought Tallinn's past to life - very much recommended.
The trip to the countryside and to the coast really rounded out our visit to Tallinn. Andres was so personable and agreeable. He was willing to discuss anything from the outdoors to government and politics as well as history and current events. This is a great way to get a much better “feel“ for the people and the country of Estonia. As always, I learned much and I erased a little bit more ignorance. I would recommend this tour highly. Also, it was very convenient that we were picked up at our hotel in the morning and dropped off directly at the ferry terminal to travel to Stockholm that afternoon. This was done by scheduling a private tour but, it was very efficient for us.
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.
Gita molto carina, si parte alle 10 quindi si può raggiungere con calma il punto ritrovo, il viaggio sul piccolo bus è carino, bella la cascata e stupenda la passeggiata nel parco in mezzo alla pineta! Molto particolare il pranzo dentro il museo del mare a base di piatti tipici (anche se non compreso nel prezzo). Nel pomeriggio si visita la parte costiera del parco. Guida molto gentile e carina, bell’atmosfera. Vale la pena spendere così una giornata
Really great day tour to some super destinations outside of Tallinn. The rock quarry swimming hole was super photogenic. Great guide, very nice and knowledgeable
Had an amazing tour with Kätlin! The weather was amazing, and the stops were well selected with the trip to Lahemaa Nation Park as an highlight, aswell as being served fantastic salmon by the seaside! Well worth putting a day in Tallinn to the side to do this tour!
The Lahemma tour was surprising for the range of activities—waterfall, manors, seaside, bog hike. Our guide Kristel was lovely and informative. I only wish the “tipping” option was made clearer. While this was a relatively expensive 1 day tour, we weren’t sure how much of that the guides actually take home.
This is a wonderful way to get out in the countryside if you're based in Tallinn without a car. You get a taste of rural Estonian architecture (grand and more modest), see nature, stroll along the seashore, and walk through quiet pine forests and beautiful wetlands typical of Estonia. The pace was relaxed, but we covered a lot of ground. There was time to take pictures, ask questions, and enjoy the silence. Lunch in a light-filled conservatory at a seafront maritime museum was delicious. Our guide, Hindrek, provided lots of interesting information and perspective on Estonian political and social history, from medieval days to the 21st century.
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.
Une excursion parfaitement organisée en groupe réduit et avec un guide très sympathique et compétent. Les lieux visités sont magnifiques et pittoresques, le repas (non inclus) délicieux et dans un très beau cadre. Bref un circuit incontournable !
Our day with Andres was fantastic. He had a great sense of humor. He loves Tallinn and he made us fall in love too. He gave us such a great history lesson that people from other tours were listening in. We learned about history, culture, current day living....everything we asked he gave a thoughtful and complete explanation, We discovered the New modern Tallinn, the Stalin Era and the old city. We visited the must see tourist spots but also some of Andres favorite hidden gems. The day went so fast and we were sorry to see it end. Andres was one of the best guides we have ever had!!!!
This is definitely worth doing, had a fantastic day on the tour! All the places we visited were interesting to see and the walk through the national park was spectacular. Our guide was also extremely knowledgeable in every location and very funny as well, loved all the hisorical Estonian stories and various tales about each place!
After a couple of days wandering around Tallinn, it was a nice change to take a visit to Lahemaa National Park. The couple of stops along the seaside also brought a welcome breeze and a bit cooler temperatures to counter the unusual heatwave. Marju was a terrific guide; very knowledgeable about what we were seeing and we learned a lot about Estonia. She really made it an enjoyable trip and I’m glad I made the decision to do this with Traveller instead of trying to do this as a day trip on my own.
Mia was a wonderful guide. Although she is still very young she is passionate and proud of her city and extremely knowledgeable. Really enjoyed the tour
An excellent tour with a great guide who was helpful and friendly. Nice balance of things to see finishing off with a walk through the bog. I would recommend the tour, lovely contrast to Tallinn.
Lahrmaa nataial park was very good Guide was also good But the Fish man's house is not good
I love the tour overall, it's worth your money spent. The atmosphere was soooo relaxing and I had a super nice group & guide. Jaan is informative and funny. Will recommend this to anyone who wants to visit Tallinn.
Our day in Lahemaa Park was super, we learnt lots of things, saw lots of wonderfull things, the walking in the viru bog what like in a dream, and our guide was so nice !
Good overview of the history and old town of Tallinn.
sehr gut geführte tour. sehr entspannte stimmung. die gruppengrösse passte. interessant und spannend auch, was unser guide uns alles erzählen konnte.
The tour was really good even if the weather was not that nice. The place is amazing and we got to learn about how Estonians lived. It would be great if you had some option with overnight stay to take advantage of bycicle sand hiking options!
A very kind guide and a great experience
A good mix of locations outside Tallinn. Illustrated Estonia culture and life in a rural setting. Helpful and informative tour leaders.
Maria is a nice and competent guide. We learned a lot and had fun.
The trip was a good day trip and over view out to Lahemaa National Park. The guide was very knowledgeable and interactive. The park is very relaxing and is a good alternative to the busy city.
Our guide Kert met us at the cruise terminal. The tour was in a comfortable van which was well air-conditioned. Kert first took us to the Old Town where he gave us a lot of information about its history. We then went to Catherine's Palace, followed by the Song Festival Grounds. We concluded the tour with a brief visit to Pirita beach. A pleasant shore excursion which made us fall in love with Tallinn.
I absolutely loved this tour, it was not your typical tour. We did some very unique things, the food we had at the museum was amazing. I swimmed in a swamp, it was so much fun. I definitely recommend this tour, it's totally worth the price you pay, the staff was super friendly and helpful.
Had a wonderful day visiting Lahemaa National Park. Andres was a great tour guide, providing lots of lots of interesting facts and stories about Estonian history. I highly recommend this tour.
A fun tour by van around the northern coast of Estonia outside of Tallinn. Easy to book, easy to find, and the day goes by so fast with all the activities. Guides (Jan and Andres) were knowledge and fun, the lunch at the Maritime museum was just amazing. I'd recommend it as a day trip from Tallinn.
My friend and I loved this tour! It was a great day out seeing different parts of Estonian countryside and seaside. We saw a beautiful waterfall, had a lovely home cooked meal for lunch at the museum, stopped by the seaside and ended with the bog. It was all really lovely and interesting to see. Our guide was excellent! We feel awful because we cannot remember his name (sorry) but he had a beard and glasses and had previously lived in Australia and NZ if that helps.. he knew sooo much about anything and everything - so clever and great stories to tell, it was brilliant! He definitely made the tour and we felt like we learnt a lot. I highly recommend this to people visiting Tallinn who have enough time to see other parts of Estonia. And a big thanks to our guide and the company for oragnising it so well!
The tour was good in some respects, and I’m not sorry we took it, but I have some complaints, and overall it could have been better. We are not fussy, but the condition of the car we rode in was borderline unacceptable. It smelled bad. Our guide was informative and knowledgeable, and did a great job explaining Estonian history and culture, but he didn’t take us along Pikk Street, which is sort of unconscionable. Fortunately I had my guide book with me, and we had time after the tour to return there and see it, but we might have missed it if I hadn’t been paying attention. Two things would have helped. First, if as a tour operator, you know that you are recommended by Rick Steves, then you should be sure to cover all the sights mentioned in his book, unless there is a good reason not to. Second, provide a map and an overview of what we’re going to be doing at the outset. It really helps to get oriented and to have a rough idea of what’s coming next. We did privately-led tours at every stop our cruise ship made, and this was the only one that didn't meet a high standard (especially with respect to the car).
This tour was a good opportunity to see the countryside in Estonia and hear our very informative guide recount many interesting stories about Estonia. The bog boardwalk offered great vistas of a unique landscape. And the salmon lunch was delicious!
Our tour was very good for us because we all know a bit of history and we like to learn about the place. Our Guide, Christian, gave us enough background information so we could have a better understanding of the Tallinn of today. Very knowlegdable and intesting. Christian was well prepared and could answer all relevant questions.
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!
This trips takes tourists to interesting countryside and nature spots which they otherwise won't be able to see and get to know if not travelling by a private car. The nine-hour trip is full of actions, story and fun. The tour guide Jaan (I hope I got your name right) is funny and not boring.
The tour was ok, length was with 90 minutes ok, not too long. The tour guide was a bit nervous, you could tell that a lot from his body language. He was friendly, the stories were nice but often we'd rather had stories being a bit more realistic. The tour would be better in the dark. Maybe shift the times in summer to later hours. There was no hot chocolate at the end :(
It was such a fun day!!! The tour guide, George, was very friendly and informative. We all became very close like a big family. The views, the food, the experiences, everything was really special. I do recommend this tour to my friends including THE lunch. I've visited quite many places in the world, but this was the best tour ever!
We walked through the beautiful medieval centre of Tallinn with Raimo, a young student who has recently started guiding. He gave us a great insight into the history of Estonia and the character of the Estonian people. Raimo had the knack of adding his quirky humour to his stories and managed to bridge the age gap between himself and our elderly selves. I would have liked a little more historical depth to the architects and the styles of houses and their connection to Finnish architecture. Also the correct naming of Olaf’s Church along with the folk tale. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed Raimo’s style and his skill at evading the hordes off the cruise ships. I recommend this tour.
The tour and guide was fantastic. Joined the tour because loved to Viru Vog but other things were also good. Lunch at local home / museum was special.
The tour was worth it and the guide was very well informed. She gave a very good overview of Lahema and Estonian History. She was also very helpful in Giving us a local’s View on ‘things to do’ in Tallinn. The village museum and the local meal was very atmospheric. However the Van used for transport was a bit cramped and they could have used a bigger vehicle.
From start to finish the tour was fantastic. All the places we stopped along the way were interesting and fascinating to see. It would not have been possible I think to have visited so much by public transport. We also had a beautiful home cooked meal in a fishing village which added to the experience. Of course one of the main reasons why the tour was so enjoyable was because of the guide. Extremely friendly, very informative and couldn't be more helpful throughout. This was my 3rd separate tour with traveller having previously done the Tallinn to Riga and Vilnius to Riga tours. I couldn't recommend them enough. All 3 of the ladies I have had as guides couldn't have done more to make the experience any more enjoyable. I would be glad to return the favour if any of you find yourselves in Ireland some day
Group of four adults: we had a very interesting tour with Siim, covering history and general life in Estonia. He has a great sense of humour and is open to discuss and answer questions of all nature. Respectful and kind, we recommend to all.
We spent a very beautiful day with our guide Marju, visiting the manors and walking through the bog trails, and the lunch, with the family food prepared at Käsmu by our host, was just great.
Our guide Alfred was so knowledgable and the tour included lots of special places that we would never have found. Lunch at the maritime museum was delicious, one of the best meals we had in Estonia.
Took the tour on June 27th. The travelers on the tour were a bit less enthusiastic in comparison to the crowd of my other tour (Riga-Tallin tour), but were fine. About he guide, actually the guides, because we got 2 guides instead of one. Laura (I think our main guide was Laura) was young, kind, knowledgeable and the other guide (sorry not remembering his name) was more experienced and knowledgeable also. They provided good natural and historical information. I asked to be dropped off before returning to Tallinn and Laura managed to set a route which minimized the spots I would not visit. At the end (at least the end of my tour), Laura kindly offered us a typical cold sweet from Estonia. Highly recommended.
Laura was very knowledgeable and paced the trip very well. She is a fantastic guide. We saw a variety of important aspects of this part of the country. I especially loved the walk through the bogs.
Very nice trip with walking in the bogs, visiting small villages on the seaside (we had lunch and museum visiting in one of them), two manor houses and a waterfall
Whether due to demand or breakdown it was necessary for Tallinn Tours to hire a vehicle. At an early stop we mentioned the smell of fuel fumes within the vehicle. Our guide agreed and promptly organised a vehicle swap at our next stop. Later I misplaced my reading glasses and our guide was prepared to make phone calls and arrangements for collection when found. It seems to me when all is going well people are not really tested but the response of Tallinn Tours when matters were not going according to script was impressive. Great personal skills from our tour guide on all fronts.
We decided to do this tour to escape the city and explore the natural elements of Estonia. Our guide Kert was very knowledgeable and friendly and the tour was laid back and very enjoyable. Lunch was fantastic at one of the private houses that also contained a private maritime museum. The walk through the viru bog was a truly unique travel experience!
María was focused on what we wanted in a guided tour. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic with a wealth of historical, cultural, and architectural information. Highly recommend her and this tour group.
Absolutely fantastic tour! Truly exceeded our expectation. Tour guide, Jüri, was very friendly, knowledgeable and had marvellous sense of humour! We got too see fantastic places and learned a lot about not only the locations but also about Estonia overall. We have already recommended this tour to friends!
An absolutely fantastic experience for all of us. We were taken to so many fascinating places, almost all of which were off the beaten track, and learned so much from our guide Liine. She was able to tell us anything about the sites and her explanations of the historical contexts surrounding them (including from the Tsarist, Nazi, and Soviet periods) were always interesting and helpful. Not to mention how kind and fun she was; it was great spending the day with her! Our lunch at an authentic Estonian cafe was another highlight. The access the tour provided to sites that would be hard to visit otherwise was also much appreciated. We could not recommend this tour enough - it contains the perfect mix of natural beauty and fascinating history. Who knew scenic coastal cliffs and decrepit abandoned military installations could combine so well! Thank you Traveller Tours.
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.
Liiine was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining throughout our private 5+hour driving and walking tour. She also was very relatable, which assisted both my husband and I and our teenage daughters’ understanding of the impact of WWII and the Soviet occupation of Estonia. Of course, the medieval history and following centuries was fully covered as well. Other favorite parts of the tour were visiting the local side of Tallin.
An excellent excursion with lots of interesting and diverse locations. Andres was a great guide.
A great day excursion with a number of diverse locations within the National Park, a great way to see the rural side of Estonia away from the city. The bog walk was especially memorable, although insect repellent is a good idea as there are mosquitoes in the warm weather! Kristel was an excellent guide.
If you have a day to spend in Tallinn, I highly recommend this tour for all of you. You can listen to lots of things about Estonian history, culture, and very detailed parts of Estonia. Also you can see magnificent nature of Lahemaa, which you've never seen before in anywhere else. I personally enjoyed this tour so much! Thank you, Laura! You are thr best guide I've ever met:)
Great guide and location
What I most liked was the museum house where we had lunch. A unique place
We had a very knowledgeable guide, Igor, who provided us with useful information about the city and the country. Very good command of the English language and an easy-to-hear clear voice. In hindsight,and after touring the place on our own , we would have liked to spend more time at the lower town and less visiting the outskirts area now being gentrified after housing old factories.
It was a nice experience with Christian, Very good and funny explanations
First of all the weather was absolutely beautiful the day of our tour. We met Liine at the cruise port gate. The city is absolutely stunning. This was an exceptional tour highlighting the history of Tallinn and the buildings contributing to that history. I love tours by local people. They are very passionate about their cities. Linne is very knowledgeable when it comes to all the history of Tallinn. We congratulate the people of Tallinn on their Independence. I highly recommend this tour.
To start off with, I am a junkie when it comes to fables and legends and myths. This tour provided all of that and more and i would recommend this tour to anyone who is fortunate enough to visit Tallinn. The guide was informative and funny with numerous stories to share.
The tour was wonderful! highly recommend. We started off seeing the waterfall followed by a complex, owned by the complex lord, his setup of servants quarters, over-looker's quarters, his business 'engine' a potato alcohol distillery. got a glimpse of how the place operated from 800 years ago until the present day, then we went off to see a viking museum leading on to a great lunch! They made arrangements for me, being vegan and it was so delicious :) we then walked on 2 different tracks, first by the pine forest which lead us to the shore , and then through the bogs. the guide was really knowledgeable, knowing aspects of history, culture, ecology of the bogs, and she told us a lot more about Estonia ! Go for it if you get the time :)
Interesting day though somewhat dampened by the rain which came along just as we were walking the bog! Our guide Katrin however did her best to assist those less prepared by supplying additional umbrellas and offers of plastic ponchos. The weather improved when we reached the fishing village and the scenery was beautiful. Our lunch stop was enjoyable and a good chance for our group to get to know each other. It was worth a trip out of Tallinn to see another side to Estonia and get a feel for local culture. This was particularly enhanced by our lovely guide whose obvious love of her country and indepth knowledge of both local history and plant life made it especially interesting.
The tour was great and interesting with the different stories about scary, bloody and spooky legends of Tallinn. Although it was his first tour, our guide was really fantastic. My teen daughters really loved him (sorry I forget his name, but I really want to give him highest mark). He had excellent knowledge about Estonian history too. Would Highly recommend.
Lovely day with witty and attentive Jaan as guide ☺ Thank you!
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!
Thank you so much Kätlin for making our day! Your kind, intelligent and relaxed way really impressed us :-)
We had a wonderful tour with Siim! He did a great job and really brought Tallinn alive...and he had a wonderful sense of humor! We walked up through the old city and then we rode bikes to the summer palaces and park. It was perfect for the time we had with the cruise ship. They provided an attachment bike for our younger one...it was terrific.
I loved the trip to Lahemaa Park. Guided in an interesting way we were stopping to see the main attractions but also had big delicious lunch at local's place and oportunity to swing on a traditional Estonian swing! Recommending to everyone!
Saw the Jagala waterfall, excellent views at Lahemaa National Park. This one day tour will shows you the other (more beautiful) side of Tallinn. Will recommend. :)
We took this tour in place of our included tour with Viking. Viking tours are usually very good, but we thought this would be really fun. It was! The tour was great. We had a young man who knew a lot about the history and culture of Tallinn. The walking tour covered old town and the bike ride got us through some different parts of the city and then out to the palace and park areas. Really nice and very enjoyable. Highly recommend it.
If you want a day trip out of Tallinn, take this fun and informative tour. We enjoyed Jägala waterfall, learning more about the history of the manors and our favourite. Walking through the bog! Our guide, Laura, was enthusiastic and friendly! We learned much about Estonia and her history. We highly recommend it. Thanks, Laura, for the amazing time!
We took the day trip to Laheema National Park, and it's well worth the money. If you are in Tallinn and have seen all the sites in the old town, I would recommend taking this day trip to see the northern country side, which includes a walk over the bog and a visit to a lovely fishing village on the Baltic Sea. The tour was excellent, our guide Ian (maybe it spells Jann?) spoke perfect English, was very knowledgeable and friendly and was a great guide. There were 6 people in our tour, and they don't take more than 8 people in the van, which is the perfect size.
A fascinating day. A chance to see other parts of Estonia, outside of Tallinn, both the coast and still recent history left by the Russians. Better yet, the chance to spend a day in conversation with a local. We had a great guide who absolutely made the day a treat and provided real insight.
Overall a day very well spent. Wonderful scenery throughout the park. Bog hike and time spent on baltic shore villages were top highlights. The company was also great. Katerine and Andres are both really great guides who are very knowledgeable about nature and Estonian History.
Great tour great guide great peeps yall need to check out these bogs yo.
Our guide, Laura, was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information. we went to some beautiful places that you wouldn't see on a regular tour. It should be noted that the price does not include entrance to the manor house.
My self and a friend booked this for us and one other as a birthday present. The tour was great! Our guide was lovely, and even gave the birthday girl a present.
Maria was our guide for a 3-hour walking tour of Old Town (Upper and Lower). Maria was the PERFECT guide! Very engaging, very knowledgeable, and tailored the tour for what we were interested in. We requested Maria based on other reviews and could not have been happier. Our booking and all correspondence with Traveller Tours was via the website and email — they made the process very easy and were a pleasure to work with. We enjoyed our time in Tallinn immensely and hope to return. We definitely recommend Traveller Tours, Maria, and Tallinn. Go and have fun!!
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
Excellent way to spend the day to see the countryside near Tallen.
Very interesting and flexible to consider our interest. Great stories and legends, very good command of english language.
Our trip outside Tallinn to the countryside of Estonia was time well spent. The tour took us to various sights in the national park but the best part was the walk through the bogs....truly worth the entire trip. Our tour guide was adequate. Answered all our questions but could have been more informative. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing Estonia outside the Tallinn city limits.
This day out in the National Park went very quickly and good to get out of the city, a complete contrast. Our guide was knowledgeable witty & informative. The first part of the walk through the bogs was incredible the safe duck boards allowed one to look around and absorp everything around up until the viewing tower. Then the duckboards became the never ending two planks balancing act. I just had to concentrate at my age 64yrs on my feet and getting to the end. It was both interesting and sad the history of Estonia the manor houses going to ruin. The fishing villages were idyllic and the choice of restaurant for lunch hit the spot. A day trip out I would recommend, take insect repellent I came back with over 20 mosquito bites.
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!
Narva and the Eastern Bloc Private day tour was a very interesting and enjoyable day. Our guide Laura was very knowledgeable and imparted plenty of information for us. She made the tour enjoyable, informative and full of extra information. We enjoyed walking along the edge of the Narva river which is the border with Russia. We would highly recommend doing this tour, to learn about the countryside and towns out of Tallinn. Well done Laura and thank you!
A great tour through the National Park with many magic moments und a well informed and funny guide! I can recommend it to anyone!
The tour was a lot of fun. Great views and interesting stories. Thanks for keeping it entertaining. The lunch was amazing and much better than some regular-type restaurant. I really loved the 6-person swing and wish I got photos of me on it. More reason to go back!
We have been so lucky with the sunny weather but that wasn't all that was great about this tour. Loved the diversity of sites we were visiting - a perfect combination of nature and history! Kert was very knowledgeable and gave us an honest and personal inside into Estonian history and daily life. Thanks again for this great experience, Kert!
Lovely day trip to get out of the city and see more of Estonia. Great guide who was super friendly and very informative.
Lahemaa National Park is very beautiful, we had stunning weather and could enjoy everything. The guide was very friendly and helpful and told us many things about Lahemaa, Tallinn, Estonia and the whole region. Definitely a must do in Estonia.
We were a group of eight and we had a nice day. We weren't to many people and the van was big enough for all of us. Our guide seemed qualified and was really nice. He answered every question we had and shared a lot of information. The view at the prison was breathtaking and totally worth the trip. It was a nice combination for us - cliffs, old sovjet place, a waterfall and an old plane.
had a amazing day, paddled in a bog, and had a go on an estonian swing!
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.
Really good, well-paced day with travellers of all ages and from many nations. Excellent guide who made sure everyone was included and kept the information coming in an engaging way. Loved it!
Excellent tour! The day was packed with things to see. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave lots of background information. Highly recommended!
Never even knew what a bog was before this tour. Great idea, definitely worth.
I am really glad I got to do the national park tour. Tallinn's old town seems to be getting the global attention for being one of the most underrated travel destinations, but I would say I was even more blown away by the nature (beautiful bogs) and the small fishing village of Estonia. My guide Kert was very knowledgeable, friendly and very funny! I felt that I could get a better perspective of life in Estonia/ Tallinn. I would recommend this tour to anyone about to visit Tallinn. This tour was the highlight of my trip! It really made me want to come back to explore the country/culture more. Thanks again Kert!
Thank you so much for an amazing journey into the past Soviet history of the country. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Igor was great. Very informative. This tour was a great way to learn about Tallin's history. Gave us a good start for the rest of our day.
Andres is a great storyteller and shared Estonian history in a way that was highly memorable! Fortunately, the weather was great and I would highly recommend this tour. :)
We had an amazing time! Liine did a great job, and proved herself to be extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. We recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the countryside and learning about the history of Estonia. Don't be afraid to ask the guide anything you would like to learn more about!
Excellent day trip outside of Tallinn. Definitely recommend it. Excellent guide (Kert) and we really enjoyed it. A little bit expensive though considering the tour operator didn’t have additional expenses other than the guide and transport
It was a fabulous experience, made memorable by our guide Kert
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.
We have experienced the day in Lahemaa National Park and really loved it. First of all, the nature is just gorgeous, even in early March. We also liked the content of excursion, had enough time for taking pictures and just enjoy the scenery. The whole atmosphere was very relaxing. Loved our guide as well. Andres, greetings from Russia :)
Great day from start to finish. Our your guide Kert was brilliant. Loads of information given about each place visited. This is an alternative insight into Estonia. Some really unexplored places to visit. Quarry visit was fantastic! Going home to Scotland with great memories.
Our guide was great, his explanation was interesting. If you arrived prepared about what you would like to see, they really try to take you there. I suggest it 😊
A really beautiful trip though forests and coastlines in the snow. I have never felt so safe being driven in snowy conditions. Our guide was excellent, very open to all our weird questions and informative. We were thrilled to see a sea eagle on the journey as well! Many thanks for a great day out.
Estonia is a small country. The "Lahemaa National Park day tour" is a very good experience if you cannot make a few days tour. It introduces you some typical things. The small track was cool, the froze waterfall was amazing and the lunch in the museum was also unforgetable. But above the all Kert (our cute guide) was perfect. His short stories and explanations were full of charm.
First of all the communication with Traveller Tours has been very good. They trips were not sure yet, but they informed me well about the situation. Finaly i booked a trip to Lahemaa N.P. with 5 other guys and Liine as our Tour Guide. It was a great day in a wonderful winter landscape. Everything was fine. Liine has been very flexible. While driving she told us a lot of facts about her country. She drove very sure on snowy streets. All in all it was a great day, which i can definetly recommend. Thanks to Liine.
Had a wonderful evening with Liine who really bought the town to life. Such a brilliant tour with best hot chocolate at the end. Highly recommend!!
We have visited Tallinn quire many times, but spend more time on shopping centres or cafes and never actually taken time to learn about the city and it's history. This time we wanted to try something different and although it was -5C and snowy, we took the possibility to go on 2-hour guided walking tour. And boy what a tour it was - Heli, our guide brought the history alive with great stories and anecdotes. We learned more about our own country too as we now understood what effect Finland has had on Estonias hard battle of independence. Great tour - well worth the time and money :)
Well worth the trip to see places you just couldn't do on your own in a day. Meal in captains museum was wonderful. Great guide!
Wind and cold winter weather did not bother at all as we listened fascinating stories of Katleen (hope I got the name correct) at our private walking tour in the old town of Tallin. Great combination of ghosts, legends, history and life of today - just as we wished. And in the end of the tour nice cup of warm tea with beautiful view of the city, thank you!
Probably one of the best tour we made. The guide was really interesting and the place we visited absolutely fantastic. Thank you!!
Siim was eloquent, humorous and captivating....wealth of a time. I had a whale of time.Kudos to him !
Maria was a fabulous guide to take us to Paldiski. She was highly knowledgeable and was very talkative! She made a special call to visit an old prison (going out of her way). Couldn’t ask for a better person to help us explore the Soviet history of the area :)
As most of the attractions in Tallinn are closed on monday, your best bet is to book the Lahemaa national park day tour with Traveller. It was an amazing experience with nature walk and stopovers at several coastal spots which offer interesting stories about Estonian history. Marju was very friendly and a great guide.
Heli is a hell of a tour guide. absolutly enthusiastic in describing her beloved city and estonians. She is equally funny and knowledged! I recomment this tour to everyone who thinks about viditing tallinn.
We were lucky enough to have Kert as our guide for the day. His history knowledge was incredible and was able to introduce us to a glimpse into Estonian and Tallinn from centuries ago to this day. Kert has a wonderful sense of humour and very well travelled himself - so his tour was much more than an ABC of a place and a drive by and wave of key attractions you might often find with tour companies. Well done Kert and thank you.
The tour was great, informative, interesting, and a perfect way to hear about all the spooky, gruesome and fascinating legends of Tallinn and it’s turbulent history. Our guide was fantastic, really fun and made for a very entertaining night, with excellent ‘home-grown’ knowledge of the area. Would Highly recommend.
I initially tried to book another tour and switched to this one after hearing that this would be the only one available at that day. Tours are cancelled, if you are the only potential customer, which is understandable. Our guide Marju was very friendly and did everything she could to make this tour a success. She was flexible and asked for everyones primary interests and tried to find a good combination to make us all happy. With our small group of only three she had enough time to answer everyones questions in detail and took good care of us. I only rated this with four stars instead of five because I didn't get to see the things that I was most interested in (from the tour I wanted to book initially).
It was really cool getting away from Tallinn and seeing another part of Estonia. Paldiski is probably the closest thing I'll ever see to Russia. This is another good tour offered by this company.
Very informative and saw some great sites. The national park was so serene and still had plenty to show even in the winter. Our guide was knowledgeable and gave so many insights into Estonian life, she also gave tips for things to do the days after the tour.
9 hour tour of Lahemaa NP. It was December so only 5 hours of daylight to see main highlights, Jagala Waterfall and Viru Bog. The bog was beautiful in the snow and ice. We were expecting tour to be cut short but it carried on for the unique experience of seeing Kasmu coast by twilight and then Sagadi Manor in the pitch black. A great day out with a fun and informative guide.
This was a perfect walk through the night and our guide Liine was so ambitious. She told us stories about Tallinn we had never heard before. I can say this was such a good idea to book this tour.
Book this tour! You will not regret a second of it. We even did the tour in freezing cold weather and enjoyed it immensely! You learn so much about the history of Tallinn, and who doesn’t enjoy a good ghost story. Worth every penny and then some!
Tour guide was amazing. The national park is truly beautiful. We went for a super lunch also.
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!
It was exciting for us to get out of the city and see a different aspect of Estonia than just the old town of Tallinn. While I love the old town, it was great to have the opportunity to explore an abandoned monastary, underwater prison and Soviet town of Paldiski. Our guide Marju was full of interesting information and tips and more than willing to answer any questions we had. We stopped at a lot of different attractions but didn't feel rushed at all- it was the right combination of activities and drive time. I definitely reccommend this trip for anyone who wants to get out and see a different side of Estonia!
I pass a good day with my husband and 3 other Nice person. The guide is very nice person too and she speak a little french, she pass time with all guests and is pleasant. I recommand this trip.
Awesome tour where you visit to places not well known by tourists... on 02 Dec, we get to visit the awesome coastal cliffs, the beautiful park with waterfall, the old monastery fort and an abandoned prison quarry... totally awesome! Our guide Mariilou (not sure the spelling) is very helpful and knowledgeable with the locations we visited and it was a nice tour.
After a similar tour in Edinburgh we had high hopes for this one in Tallinn. The free walking tour was also a hard act to follow but unfortunately we were very disappointed. We did not find the content very stimulating and its delivery was lacking. We were expecting a 2 hour tour so thought the 1 hour 10 minute one we actually had for 15 euros each was expensive. Sorry, but wouldn't recommend.
This was one of the top highlights of my trip to Tallinn. Although it was cold and dark, it really added to the ghost tour. It's such a great way to learn more about the history of the place. Liine was our guide and she was so great - entertaining, easy to understand, really engaging and passionate. Thank you!
Grazie alla nostra guida abbiamo scoperto splendidi luoghi in cui altrimenti non saremmo mai stati. Ne vale la pena.
We booked pretty last minute to go on the Coastal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski Tour and Traveller Tours sorted it all out for us really quickly and the tour couldn't have been better! We were picked up in the morning by Kert who was awesome! He knew all the answers to our barrage of questions and did it all with a smile on his face and many laughs along the way. The trip certainly packed in lots of interesting things to see over the course of the day including soviet bunkers and buildings, a monastery, waterfalls and probably our favourites .... Rummu prison and quarry as well as the soviet cargo plane. This trip was one of the highlights of our time Estonia and well worth checking out.
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.
I took the Haapsalu and West Coast Tour a few days ago and have only words of gratitude toward this company and especially to Marju who was very friendly and professional. She took the time to show and explain us about anything from history to biology. She patiently answered all of our questions and took us to this great caffé in Haapsalu, so we could try the simple but tasteful Estonian country cusine. Totally recommendable if your interested in history, politics, architecture and bird-watching or simply walking along the seaside. Tänan, Marju!
I don't recall how my daughter found Traveller Tours when we were planning a trip to Estonia; but I'm glad she did. By us, small-group tours with local guides win hands-down over both large, cookie-cutter "highlight" tours done in lockstep with others, and the DIY approach with its inevitable false starts, lost time, and missed possibilities. We did two TT tours while in Estonia: one to Viljandi and the university town of Tartu, the other to the resort area around Haapsalu. Our respective guides, Kert and Marju, were graduate students fluent in English with an excellent grasp of both Estonian and European history and a good handle on the particulars of each site we visited. On the Viljandi/Tartu trip, we three had Kert to ourselves. So it effectively was a private tour at a group-tour price. On the Haapsalu trip, we had a congenial group of eight plus Marju. In both cases, we had plenty of time to talk and ask questions along the way; and we learned a great deal. Should we have a second opportunity to visit Estonia, we would happily go on more Traveller Tours. Thanks, Kert and Marju and colleagues, for doing such a great job!
Our guide was Kaitlin (sorry if I dont spell it correctly) and she was very friendly and knew a lot about the places we visited and the history of Estonia. 7 hours actually went fast and I think it was good that the tour had a mixture of beautiful nature and other more historic places. One big plus was when me and my family looked in an old photoalbum at the taverna in Paldiski, and we found our grandmothers old home at a picture :)
We did the 10:00am walking tour on a weekday morning with Maria, and it was great. She was very funny and informative, and gave us a great walk around old town, providing tons of information and some interesting stories about the city and its history, as well as providing some recommendations. It wasn't too long and gave us an idea of all the things to stop and see on our own later. Very good tour.
Kert Oun was the guide for an extremely enjoyable and educational outing from Tallinn to Narva and many sites with buildings from the Soviet era. A history buff, he went in depth on each site and the history of Estonia and it's people. He was also highly respectful of the local people during our visits to various towns. Don't miss this tour if you can manage it, especially if Kert is the guide.
This was a 7 hour trip with plenty of stops. Good to see different parts of Estonia. The waterfall was beautiful. The roads were so quiet. The Russian aspect is such recent history. We also had lunch in an old Tavern in Russian Paldiski - dumplings! Our tour guide Kert made the trip very enjoyable and we got to know quite a bit about Estonian life. Well worth the money, a good day out.
I attended Narva tour and it was a great experience for me! We visited places I would not be able to discover on my own, a spooky abandoned village and a huge former cotton factory, historical soviet buildings, castle on the very boarder with Russia and other cool places where the time has stopped and we could "taste" the forgotten fame from the past. Kert was a very nice guide with knowledge of the history and explained to us all the interesting background of the places. He was very friendly and together with other tourists, the tour turned to an exciting trip of friends.
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!
We were traveling by cruise ship with our 2 teens (ages 14 & 19) and booked the 5 hour car and walking tour. Our guide Chris not only did a great job of showing us the city, but had a sense of humor that kept us laughing throughout the tour. We ended our day with an excellent lunch that he had pre-booked ahead of time. Getting to know a local while seeing the highlights of this beautiful city made our short time in Tallinn special. We all left wishing we could see more.
We had a fantastic day and cannot recommend Traveller enough. Our tour guide, Siim was fantastic!!! He was friendly, knowledgeable, and made us feel completely welcome!
This was a great tour. George, our tour guide was so enthusiastic about his country and its fascinating but sad history. The Old Town area of Tallinn is beautiful, very medieval. We learned so much from him, really had no knowledge of Estonia before this tour. It is a walking tour, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes for walking cobblestone streets. I would highly recommend this tour, we enjoyed it very much. Thank you George!!
Travelling with Kert and Isabel has been a great pleasure. The day-tour has been filled with information about this out-of-the-way part of Estonia - historical as well as modern times have been covered by the profund knowledge of Kert. Both guides were great company (as were the other guest) and I had lots of fun. And thanks for the safe driving. Thanks again and all the best to you
After arriving in from Riga that morning, Heli and the walking tour of Tallinn was my first experience, she was so fantastic brilliant, energetic and I really enjoyed her spirit.
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
I just came back the day tour trip to Lahemaa Park. The weather was not 100% nice but the tour itself was really awesome! Estonian Lunch in Kasmu was so delicious and the viru bog was so exotic and amazing! Also our guide "Marju" was so kind and nice with bright smile :) I highly recommend this tour to ones who wish to visit the Lahemaa Park but hesitating due to absence of public transportation. The park itself and waterfall was great worth visiting
Helen gave us a wonderful tour of the upper and lower town. We learned a perfect mix of culture, history, and architecture. She gave great advice for places to continue exploring and answered all of our questions. I would recommend it as a first tour of the area to start your trip because she gave so much useful and interesting historical background for understanding the layout and history of the city. One of the best tour guides I've had on a walking tour anywhere in the EU!
We visited Tallinn as a port on our Baltic Sea Cruise. First, I want to say Isabel was my contact & she arranged our 2 hour walking tour. She was very accommodating as my brother & his family opted to join us for the tour. Our guide that day was Siim. Siim patiently waited for us at the exit gate. The weather was an off & on drizzle. Siim was very knowledgeable about his town. He knows a lot of history of Tallinn. We asked Siim to recommend & to join us for lunch at a restaurant that would serve local fare & off the tourist beat. The experience was amazing as well as the meal. We enjoyed talking with Siim. We did pay to extend our tour, we were having such a great time! I want you to know that even though the weather was not very good for a walking tour, this town & the experience we had, was hands down our family's favorite. We could not stop talking about our day in Tallinn. Thank you Isabel, Siim & Traveller Tours!!
I took the tour to Narva last year with Kert as a tour guide. What I enjoyed the most was that there was never a rush, unlike most other tours I have been to. Kert had answers to all my questions. We all got along really well and it felt like I was travelling with a group of friends. Narva tour would be a perfect fit for someone who is interested in soviet era and exploring abandoned places. Everything was excellent!
We had a private tour with Kert last week from Tallinn to Narva. We enjoyed the full day with excellent guiding to historic places. Ingrid and Claes
It was the most exciting national park that I ever visited!
We booked this full-day tour online in advance in order to see something different and spend a day with a local, away from the Capital. We were too sure what to expect, but found the experience well worth our time and the expense. We inquired about changing the date of the booking by a day due to more favorable weather and also asked about changing our final payment from cash to credit card and they effortlessly agreed. Our guide, Kert, was very timely, courteous and accommodating to our requests throughout the day. He provided good and interesting commentary and answered our many questions with plenty of details. Complements to Kert and Tallinn Traveller Tours for a job well done.
We had a lot of fun with our guide Maria. Maria is the perfect guide, she knows a lot about Tallinn and can even tell some funny stories. We can recommend a guided tour through Tallinn with her! Thanks again! 😊
We took the day tour to the western cliffs and Paldiski and it was phenomenal. Our tour guide, Martin, seems to know everything about Estonian history (literally) and answered all of our questions beautifully. (Coincidentally, Martin was also our guide on the Tallinn Old Town free walking tour, where he also displayed incredible depth of knowledge.) The sights on the tour itself were spectacular. This tour was actually our second choice, but we were not disappointed. The views from the western cliffs were breathtaking. The tour also included stops to a number of relics from the Soviet era, including an old forced labor camp, and to see a Soviet fighter plane. I would highly recomend this tour-the perfect combination of nature and history to some places off the beaten path.
We visit Tallinn every year in February and booked a private tour to Haapsalu (our flights were on dates of regular tour) and it really was an excellent day out, well worth the extra cost. Kert, our guide, was great - we chatted about all sorts of aspects of Estonian life, and he was so knowledgable about the interesting places we visited - and got as excited as we did when we drove across the ice-road on the Baltic!! Communication before our trip was excellent and we were so pleased we did it. Definitely will be booking another tour to another part of this beautiful and fascinating country when we come back next year. Thank you so much for a great day out.
Today was my best Tour around Tallinn. Heli is very smart and very funny, energetic and informative with awesome taste of humour.
We went with Liine (probably misspelled) who is a young, friendly and super nice guide. Despite the temperature of -15°C the day was amazing! Seeing frozen waterfalls and bog in the magic of the winter is wonderful. We had lunch with a local family in a beautiful seaside old wooden house. Recommended.
Yevgeny gave us a great half day tour of the Lahemaa National Park. He shared tons of knowledge and facts about the area, history, and life in Estonia. We really appreciated being able to set this tour up at the last minute and they were so willing to accommodate and meet our needs. Truly a great morning and great personal service. Thank you!
We went on the Lahemaa National Park tour with Jevgeni, and would highly recommend it. Jevgeni was friendly, informative and funny throughout the tour (so much so that someone else not on our tour wanted to film him telling a joke he'd just told us because we were laughing so much!). We really enjoyed the tour; it was the best day of our holiday. Thank you Jevgeni!
We were on a tour led by the very funny and informative Heli. Her English is amazing. Learnt a lot about this lovely city, country and people. Would highly recommend doing this tour.
A massive thank you to JJ. I learnt and saw a lot in one day. His local knowledge and anecdotes made it a memorable day. If you want to see the side of Estonia not usually seen by tourists, then this is the tour for you. Also thank you to Marii, for suggesting the tour for me. To sum up; great value, great lunch, great guide and most of all a tour that does exactly what it says. See you next time.
We had Heli on our tour and she made it hands down the best free walking tour we have done -and we have done a fair few over the years (because the price is right :) ) Her knowledge of the city and its history is top notch and her delivery is right on with humour and information. You will be in good hands if Heli is taking your group.
I had a superb tour to a lot of places at Lahemaa National Park with Kert. This tour caused definitely the wish to return to Estonia for more places at the countryside. Kert is an expert at the region because he grew up locally. He is also a historian who knows interesting facts about visited places (as Kert has also studied in Cologne, Germany where I live, I also got a view of Cologne carnival from an Estonian)
We did two tours - first one to Lahemaa National Park. Firstly I must say that our tour guide - Jaan (aka. John) was amazing - really smart and friendly guy who knew a lot about the history of Estonia and all the places that we visited with him. He was so genuine and it was so pleasant to listen or talk to him because he really was interested in sharing the information with us. Also, he was super-funny! :) The tour itself was very informative and fun. All the places that we visited were really interesting and cool, especially the submarine base and the bog. :) Would definitely recommend it to everybody! The second tour was to western coast and town called Haapsalu. This time we had an awesome tour guide again - Kert. He was also very knowledgeable and happy to share it with us. Unfortunately it was quite rainy that day, so it was not the best time to visit the coast and seaside, but we did enjoy it quite a bit. Just driving around on the tiny forest roads in the middle of nowhere was already pretty cool. Luckily the rain stopped in Haapsalu, so we got to see the town and promenade. Kert also took us for lunch in a very authentic and rustic estonian restaurant which was great! All in all - both of the trips were really cool, thank you! :)
The tour was organised wellvright from the start, easy pick up point and we left on time.Anneli organised the bookings and ourvguide KKatie was fantastic! Throughout the day she toldcus about relevant Estonian culture, history and geography. The tourcwax a good mix of walking and driving. We had several stops during the day. It wasvery relaxing walking along the promenade in Haapsalu and visiting the fortifications and old train station. We stopped for lunch at a quaint cafe and also had time forcsome shopping. On the way back to Tallinn we stopped at an abandoned Soviet airfield, a quirt place on the coast and a little village. Katie made the experiences very special. I lesrnt so much that day . Thanks
While in Tallinn, we took the Coastal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski tour, we had a wonderful day with Olga, our guide who could not have been more helpful. Her knowledge of the area was amazing and made the place come to life. We had a great lunch at a local restaurant! Olga was great, we need her right now in St Petersburg. Take the trip you will enjoy it!
We took the Lahemaa National Park day tour. It was a very full and varied day, with a range of interesting and entertaining experiences. The mixture of nature and history was very good. Kert, our excellent guide, put everyone at ease and had a gift for explaining Estonian history. His knowledge of nature and Estonia was also very broad. His driving was also perfect.
I did a Lahemaa National Park day tour with Kert as my guide. He was absolutely fantastic. Not only was he knowledgeable with the history of Estonia, he is a fun guide as well. I have experienced playing on the traditional Estonian swing and had so much fun with it. Thank you so much Kert for giving me such an unforgettable experience in Tallinn.
Had a glorious few hours with Ariel. Spending time with her made the whole experience of Tallinn 100% more enjoyable. We were lucky to have her to guide us and that we did in sunshine. All the best The Connor family from South London
It was an amazing day in the Lahemaa National Park with Kert. He is a professional guide with a lot of knowledge of Estonian history. He tells with passion and humor and brings a lot of personal experience with it. The national park is really amazing and wonderful place and if you go to Tallinn, this tour should be in your program.
The Lahemaa Tour was amazing! We were a small group so we got to know each other quickly! We got to see various different sights in the national park and enjoyed a delicious homemade Estonian lunch! Our tour guide was really nice and she gave us a lot of information about the area and Estonian culture!
Best tour guide ever!!! Well done Heli
Our family of 6 wanted a tour where we could walk the old city and also see other sights like the summer palace. In addition, we had special dietary needs. John (getting his Master's in History) was such an amazing host. He met us off the ship and both drove and walked us around. He brought us to a great restaurant for a gluten free lunch. He was so knowledgeable and friendly. Don't hesitate to book your cruise shore tour with them. Much better than what is offered on the ship.
2 exciting, informative and funny hours. Thank you, Henri!
Just ended walking tour with Henry. Excellent tour with excellent guide. Professional, well informed and enthusiastic. We enjoyed every minute of it and made us forget the rain. Thank you. Stefania, Iain, Timothy and Marina
Also went on the Coastal Cliffs tour with Teele, and I'm in complete agreement with earlier reviews. She is delightful, and the tour is a wonderful way to spend a day here.
Great knowledge of the city and its history, funny and interesting to listen to. Congrats Mart!
Triin gave us a fascinating trip round Lahemaa. We learned more about Baltic history than we could have hoped for, and experienced a great variety of places and stories. Thank you very much.
The 2 hour Tallinn walking tour with Ariel was a highlight of a great day out. Her friendly manner was only matched by her historical knowledge. Informative and fun........thanks Ariel.
Our tour was terrific. Our guide, Ariel, was very informative, but also very pleasant. I highly recommend the tour, even at a higher price.
A huge "Thank You" to Ariel for her 3 hour walking tour through Tallinn! The history and insight into the city and culture were awesome!
I just got back from an awesome day. Making the cliffs tour. Very various places to see and much fun. Maarja made that Day perfect, From her really enthusiastic attitude to the fact that we did the all trip and more even if Take more times! This tour really deserved its reputation.
Amazing tour. Amazing guide. Totally worth it.
We had a really great time on the tour! The nature of Estonia is stunning and really worth a visit!! Our guide, Triin had a lot of interesting stories to tell about the history of Estonia and we learnt a lot. I would definitely do this tour again!
The Tour was amazing! A must-see!! So different to get out of the city and into Estonia's beautiful nature! We heard a lot of great stories and learned a lot about Estonia's history. Our tour guide Triine (I'm probably spelling it wrongly) was lovely. We had a lot of fun with her
Excellent tour, would definitely recommend it! We learned a lot, our guide Martin is very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you!
Our walking tour of the Old Town on July 3rd with Henri as guide was wonderful. He made the town and its history really interesting and informative with a few chuckles thrown in. I recommend this tour wholeheartedly and if you get to have Henri as guide it's a bonus.
Triin with 2 ii's! thank you so much for such a great tour to Lahemaa park. We learned a lot about history of Estonia and saw so many picturesque places within the park. We could see how passionate and energetic you are about your country and your job. Thanks for sharing with us.
We had a great time on the Funky Bike Tour of Kalamaja. Our guide Maria was enthusiastic and friendly. She gave us so much information about Estonia, she patiently answered our plethora of questions, and she paced the tour so that it was interesting and active for us parents and our two teen daughters. Our kids loved it! Maria even brought us Estonian candy, sharing it at just the moment when we all needed a sugar hit! The biking was easy and the day, beautiful! We would highly recommend the tour and Maria as a guide!
We have just had the "Ghost Tour" of the city of Tallinn together with the guide Helen. We enjoyed it very much, Helen managed to tell us a lot of the city and its history in a very fascinating way. We discovered hidden spots, heard scary stories - will never want to walk around the old town in the middle of the night! - we learnt so much about Tallinn, Estonians and their culture. It was indeed a great tour and Helen was super kind and professional!
On July 14th 2016 we had the pleasure to enjoy Tallinn's Old Town tour led by joyful Mart. Half guide, half stand-up comedian, Mart showed us the best parts of the city centre while he nurtured our brains with both historical and cultural facts, loud and clear despite the fact that we were a sizeable bunch. Not trying to say that the other guides are not good, but look out for Mart when you visit Tallinn :)
Lahemaa National Park tour, very relaxing, refreshing and beautiful tour. I joined the tour on 1 June 2016. We visited waterfalls, bogs, forest, seaside and the gorgeous fishing village, Käsmu Captain's Village and her little museum. Every time when I was thinking about the salmon lunch we had, my mouth watered. Thanks to our guide, Maria, I still remember the canned Estonian air :D
We made the Lahemaa National Park tour today. Our guide was Kert. Not only did he amaze us with his thorough knowledge of Estonian history that he happily shared with us, he also managed to return 100% of the participants for the first time in his career - what a keeper! ;) The whole tour felt like an exciting road trip with friends from different nationalities and at different ages. Thank you very much!
Wasn't sure what to expect from the Lahemaa National Park tour but it definitely exceeded all expectations. We had Geron for the tour and he was very knowledgeable but I especially enjoyed his dry wit and unusual sense of humour - definitely made a difference to the tour. Loved the Käsmu Village and the Viru Bog the best!
Teele was our guide for the Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski last Tuesday (5 July 2016) & I must say it was one of the most relaxing tours I've been on. Not only she's a safe driver but also offered tons of interesting information and always made sure we were ok and comfortable. As another reviewer said, the highlight of this tour was the Rummu prison and the quarry and also we got to sit inside an abandoned Soviet cargo plane!
Ariel was a great and witty guide on the 3 H walking tour of Tallinn. She was extremely informative and made the trip a joyous experience to be a part of. Highly recommend it to anyone looking to discover rich heritage and history in this beautiful city.
Kert was a great guide. Made us feel very comfortable. He was charming, funny, and informative. We had a great time and can recommend him highly. Best of luck, Kert, we'll send friends! We just loved Estonia!
Highly recommend the Tallinn old city walking tour with Mart. We loved seeing the sights while laughing about the dry sense of humour of Estonians and the presidents shenanigans. Mart was very entertaining and had a good sense of humour! Well worth it!
Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski, I did the tour on Sunday the 29th of May, our guide was 'Relika' (phonetically spelled). She was very knowledgeable, and could answer all my questions about the Paldiski area and Estonian history in general. Lovely and polite person too. Highlight for me was Murru prison quarry, very surreal landscape. Thanks!
Just came back from the Tour with Maarja to Paldiski. Has been very interesting and we really enjoyed the 7 hours with this Wonderful Guide - thank you Maarja!! As we have to fly back tomorrow to Austria this was the Perfect last day and I can only recommend it!
We had a great 2 hour tour with Mart, who showed us the sights, but more importantly, provided a fascinating recount of Tallinn's history, politics, and the dry sense of humor. Highly recommended!
We did a walking tour of Tallinn with Maria. She was very friendly, and knowledgable about the city giving us detailed explanations to our questions. Also, we booked the tour very last minute and she went out of her way to accommodate us which we really appreciated.
I really enjoyed the Lahemaa National Park tour and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to see part of the beautiful nature and important history of this country. I would like to thank our guide, Geron, who made this tour even better!
The Laheema National Park tour was amazing! Highlights included going behind Estonia's tallest waterfall, and swimming in a bog lake. Our guide, Jon, was fantastic! He was knowledgable, funny, and thoughtful. If you like getting some physical activity while learning, you should definitely take this tour.
Took the walking tour with Heli straight from our cruise ship... what a highlight of the cruise ! Heli is outstanding, funny and witty. Highly recommended.
I also participated the tour on 20th of June and must say that what an actor Estonia has missed in HELI. The tour was fantastic mix of laughter, acting, facts and figures. Thank you indeed.
Hi everyone, we had a tour with our guide HELI on the 20th of June 2016 and it was very nice. HELI is hugely entertaining, interacts with the audience in a great manner and passes on more information to you than you would believe is possible in one hour. Not just the years and numbers, but speckled with lots of anecdotes and light humour. Best tour I (we!) ever had! Wish she could be hired for Amsterdam...
Had a tour on June 20th at 19:00 with Heli who was the best Guide I've ever had. Our Group was really impressed of her knowledge and the way she presented her hometown. We all enjoyed every second of her stories.
We went on a tour with Ariel today. What an amazing young lady! She gave us a fantastic history of Tallinn with some fun facts as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would recommend it to anyone wanting a comprehensive but not overwhelming tour of this wonderful city.
We did the walking tour of Tallinn with Maria in June. She was extremely knowledgeable on the history and made the experience very interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
We had an excellent Funky Bike Tour with lovely Katrin this morning and she was the perfect guide to show us parts of Talinn we wouldn't have discovered on our own. The railway station, remnants of Russian occupation, disused factories, the old prison and its chilling history and above all, the emerging public art. An amazing tour. Highly recommended.
Enjoyed a great tour of Tallinn Old Town with Henri on May 22. Very informative, good humor, friendly!
Dear Tripadvisor I chose the Lahemma day tour with the company that was recommended from Tallinn What a company -Just outstanding service We had Chris our guide I cannot find enough superlatives to write about him as a person and with so much knowledge and the way he did it Just wonderful He is a treasure to the company Thanks to tripadvisor we enjoy traveling Sincerely Henya Glazer Amex Travel Services Israel
Funky Bike Tour is highly recommended for all who want to see beyond the evident beauty of the old town and to understand how Talinn has grown through its more recent history under Russian rule. Katrin our guide was warm, enthusiastic and very well informed. Her excellent English made communication easy as she introduced more personal stories to explain how Estonians lived and worked. We especially enjoyed seeing the old Russian railway station, the prison and its chilling history, the disused Volta factory and a quirky little cafe by the sea. The emerging Public Art blended well with many of these industrial buildings.
Martin met us as scheduled for our 5-hour Tallinn tour. His English is EXCELLENT, with an amazing grasp of American colloquialisms and slang, which he says he picked up from watching TV and movies. His knowledge of the history and politics of the area was extensive, and he was able to explain it in terms easily understood by non-history buffs. Hands down, our group of 4 voted Tallinn the best of our five city/country stops, primarily due to Martin's skills and knowledge, the beautiful surroundings and (of course) the fabulous weather.
Suur-suur tänu teile suurepärase Ida-Eesti tuuri eest. Oli väga huvitav ja seiklusrikas päev. Suur tänu giid Triinule, kes viis meid huvitavatesse kohtadesse ning puistas hulgaliselt huvitavaid fakte. Soovitan ka teistele ettevõtetel viia oma töötajad hetkeks kontorist välja ning tugevdada seeläbi meeskonna vaimu.
This was our highlight in our 3 days stay in Estonia. Trinn, our tour guide, was very cheerful and enthusiastic in sharing! The places we visited was beaaauutiful and awesome! Don't think we would have loved this place as much if it was another tour guide.
Our family of four had a wonderful 5 hour car and walking tour with Katlin. We were met just outside the cruise gates and then proceeded to do a narrated walking tour of the old town. Next we drove in a brand new vehicle to see other areas just outside of town. Katlin was very knowledgeable and gave us great insight into Estonia and its people.
Annile gave us a private walking tour while we were in Tallinn as part of a Baltic cruise. Annile was by far the best of the 5 different tour guides we used in different countries. She was perky, personable, and very friendly. She was knowledgeable but did not go into boring detail. She gave a lot of insight on Estonia live, politics, culture-- including difficulties with living close to Russia. I highly recommend Tallinn Traveller Tours and especially Annile
Our guide Maria is very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed our walking tour of Tallinn, it is a great introduction to the city / country and I recommend it. The map and traveller tips were a bonus. Thank you
Thank you Liine for a fantastic and thrilling ghost tour, our students loved it!!!
Henri was really enthusiastic and friendly. He made Tallinn come alive for us - highly recommend you seek him out.
My husband and I did the 3 hr private walking tour with Maria in May, 2016, and we were so pleased that we had made that choice instead of one of our ship's crowded, and more expensive, group excursions. Maria was so knowledgeable about the history of her country. She spoke excellent English and was able to answer all our questions. She was waiting for us right outside cruise dock gates with a sign with our name on it. Our tour felt more like a visit with a friend and we were sorry when it was time to say goodbye. The 3 hour guided tour was just right for us, as we still had plenty of time to poke around the market and shops after. Excellent tour and excellent value!!
We had a small group of cyclists from Helsinki and we enjoyed a lot of biking tour with Liine. Liine could tell about the history of Estonia very lively. It really was the best guided tour I've ever been.
My friend and I decided for the Coastal Cliffs + Paldiski tour. We were only 4 people on the tour and it seems like that we are a family. Our tour guide Triin was amazing her knowledge brilliant and her sense of humour was unbeatable. We learned a lot about the history of Estonia. She knew all the answers to all the questions and we would like to travel with her again on our next trip to Tallinn. Thanks a lot Triin and we highly recommend you and your travel agency.
Usually I am not a friend of guided Tours. But in this case, we decided to make one, because we were short on time. So we booked Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski. Because there were no other interested people we get a private Tour. And this Tour was so fantastic that we made the Lahemaa and Haapsalu Tour too. I recommend you, to spend at least one Day of your Holidays outside the town and make one of these trips. If you have only one Day make the Lahemaa Tour. The girls we had as guides are altogether brilliant, so it makes no difference which one guides you. Thank´s you showed us your wonderful homeland.
Touring with Henri in Tallinn is one of the best tours I've had, humorous, informative and relaxing!
Me and my friend, we did the Laheema National Park tour two weeks ago and we really enjoyed it. Many thanks to our great tourguide Kätlin, who was really friendly and enthusiastic! She told us lots of interesting stories.
We enjoyed a tour to Coastal Cliffs & Paldiski with Liine. It was grasping, we had a nice company with our tourmates, and our guide was very lively and smart. It seems that Liine knows everything about history and Estonia! We recommend this tour for anyone who wants to spend an interesting day in the outdoors!
This is something everyone visiting Estonia should do! Our guide Kätlin was amazing, she was so nice and told us really interesting stories and facts during the trip. There were two other girls on the trip at the same time and it felt just if we were friends spending perfect Sunday together :) Thank you once again Kätlin! It was a perfect day!
I took a tour with Katrin, and had a fantastic time! Katrin was friendly and very engaging, and kept us fascinated with great stories and history. By far the best tour guide experience I have had while traveling in Europe!
Excellent tour with a great animated tour guide - Heli. Total walk is about 2 miles in 2 hours and the time went by very quickly because Heli was captivating. Highly recommended!
The best tour you can do in Tallin!i suggest the park of Laheema.Jevgeni is a very kind and professional guide, the tour is great!
Travelling to Estonia in November sounds like a bad idea, but we had such a great time! Of course it was... ehm.. a bit chilly, but our Guide Olga did a great job. We had Lahemaa practically to ourselves and it had the charming colours of a Tundra. Be aware, it's getting dark early, but the floodlighted manor looked impressive nonetheless.
We had a fantastic day... "No sex, no future, but excellent guides and a beautiful country". Thank you Martin for all the stories and funny details. By the way, we just discovered that kiiking already came on Belgian television.... The olympic dream is coming closer :-) Gert, Katrien and Joris
Martin was our guide for the Lahemaa National Park. The park was really great, but we also went to many other places including restored and derelict manor homes, soviet relics etc. Martin was an excellent guide, provided a lot of knowledge and kept us well entertained with his easy going nature.
I never thought I would enjoy this city alone but I was wrong. Lahemaa tour was awesome and the guide was really awesome. Like, I think it's safe to say, this was one of the best trips I have ever been at. I am really looking forward to come back here again to see more of what Tallinn traveller tour are offering.. You guys are the best, No Doubt :)
For the money, this was one of the best day tours I've been on. Our guide Eliise was full of information and made each stop interesting, as well as being an all round ace person. The itinerary was satisfyingly packed and there was a good variety of places and things to do. Lunch was divine - I need that salmon in my life! Despite it being a nine hour trip, I never once felt bored. All in all, a brilliant day out and highly recommended for those visiting Estonia.
The Tallinn Ghost Tour is one of the most marvellous things to do in Tallinn! Our tour guide Liine was a fantastic storyteller and did a great job! It was great fun and very interesting to meet all the real ghosts of Tallinn old town (special regards to the ghost in the Swedish embassy :) )
My husband and I joined the walking tour on 3rd September. What a great guide Marii was. She was proud of her city, very knowledgeable and amusing. Although we had been to Tallinn in 2011 we visited parts of the city on the walking tour we had not seen before. Definitely worth doing this 2 hour walk if you visit this beautiful city. Thank you Marii.
We had a wonderful tour to Lahemaa national park. our guide Katlin was perfect , profesional and so good. she knew all the answers to all the questions and we would like to travel with her again on our next trip to Tallinn
Best day ever was in Tallinn during our two week cruise on the Baltic Sea. On August 25, 2015, our traveling group of 12 met with Mart for a two hour private tour. I can't say enough good things about him. He told us so many interesting historical facts about Estonia, added much humor to his presentation and was very accommodating to our needs. It truly was our favorite day of the trip. We all agreed Mart would make an excellent professor. He will be successful no matter what he chooses to do. Thank you Mart for making our visit to Tallinn so memorable!
In August 2015, we (4 adults) used Tallinn Traveller Tours to organize appx. 7 hr tour of Tallinn with Katlin. We had an excellent time! Tallinn Traveller Tours took the time to organize a private trip and answer countless of emails and questions. The company was able to organize a fantastic tour, according to what we wanted to see and learn about. Katlin was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and full of energy! Although our tour had officially ended, she still took us to one more place (the Song Festival Grounds) because she felt it was important for us to see this historical place. We were so grateful for this! Our tour included a van, which was new and clean. There were water bottles waiting for us in the van. During the tour, we decided not to go to one of the planned museums. The company refunded the money right away without any hassles and without us having to remind them. Overall, Tallinn Traveller Tours is a very professional tour company with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
The Lahemaa National Park tour was a lot of fun. Our tour guide, Olga, was absolutely wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about Estonia from her and the tour.
I took part to 2 guided tours, and both were great experiences! The Lahemaa tour with George, which I would recommend both for the amazing views and experiences throughout the natural reserve and for being organized in such a personal, smooth way. Thank you guys for the good time :-)
Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski - tänan Kätlin
We did the Lahemaa national Park tour with Kris - fantastic.
We visited Tallinn in August 2015 and booked a four hour walking & bike tour. Our guide, Mart, was fabulous. He was extremely knowledgeable and provided a commentary that was full of historical facts and amusing anecdotes about a country and city that he loves passionately. Once on the bike, he took us to places that only a few get to see and, for that, we are very grateful. An excellent tour and a fantastic guide. You will be well rewarded by booking this tour.
Martin gives us a fantastic day on 20 August in this free country. Thank you!
Our group of four arranged for a private tour. Our guide, Liine, a young university student with excellent English and command of idioms, was full of meaningful details and comments. We were interested in Tallinn during the Soviet period. Liine had much to say including an impressive command of history from the Teutonic Knights til the recent independence. Thank you, Liine, for making our trip to Tallinn so exceptional. Cost: 4 persons, 3 hrs., 100 Euros.
Excellent tour with Mart coping really well with a truly global audience. The 2 hours disappeared in a flash full of interesting sights and entertaining narrative. Recommended for anyone especially with Mart to guide you and answer any questions.
An amazing tour of Tallinn with Tanya, tailored for our needs (a 7 year old with an avid interest in history but short legs!). Extremely friendly and pleasant tour guide, can't recommend her or the company enough!
We had less than a day to spend in Tallinn. So decided to take a short walking tour of the city. Our guide named Liine was very informative, funny and efficient. She took us around the main parts of the city with small stops in between, to tell us the history of the city. It was really enjoyable. I will recommend this tour to anyone taking a short trip to Estonia.
Martin was an excellent tour guide. He speaks fluent english. He told us everything we wanted to know, no matter if it was about Estonian politics, the weather, the countryside, sports, becoming independent from the soviet Union and so on. All this informations came along the trip in addition to the Information we expected, when we booked the trip. The last advice we took was the dinner in the "Kukeke" bar in Tallinn. We really enjoyed the day with Martin and the others. The tour is excellent. We can really recommend it to others. Take the chance when it gets offered.
We booked the 3h Old Town tour with Tatjana on Aug 2, 2015. I must say that Tatjana is an awesome tour guide. She demonstrated deep knowledge of Tallinn history, with a lot of personal touch, which made it feel like the stories come from someone who really lives the history. After taking the tour with Tatjana, Tallinn definitely occupies a very special spot in my heart, and I hope to visit it again one day.
Fue en ingles, pero se me hizo muy entretenido. Mart el guía me encanto! Una excelente opción para tener una visión sobre la historia y ubicarse en tallin!! Sorry, my review is in Spanish!
I pre-booked and paid in full by email prior to ship (Royal Caribbean) arrival. I was told driver/guide will meet at pier at 09:00. Yes, the guide was there exactly in nice clean van ready to go. I pre-explained one passenger was 80 and could not walk a lot. The driver took care of our entire party the whole day. I highly recommend this company and tour. Tour included stop for lunch, in which we paid for the guide's meal. Very good tour.
Although there has been a booking problem with my Lahemaa tour they gave me the possibility to enjoy a fantastic costal tour with Martin instead. Many thanks to the team! It has been a great experience in Estonia which I'll never forget. If somebody reading this review has the time to go on the tour I would highly recommend it!
Although not fond of guided tours we did the Laheema National Park Tour because we noticed that hiring a car and following a printed guide was a rather inefficient way to see places of interest. Our guide was Martin and his enthusiasm and background of history studies resulted not only in seeing fabulous places but also in an elaborate commentary on Estonian habits and culture interwoven with anecdotes from the Soviet era. We are so glad we joined this tour!
The Costal Coat and Paldisky Tour we made last saturday was the most amazing and awesome of our estonian's stay. The guide, Kris, was perfect: So available, funny and always here to give many details and special jokes. We enjoyed it ALL the time
Today we participated in the trip to the Costal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski. It was an amazing trip, and Kris was a fantastic tour guide. With his passion and expertise, he made this trip an unforgattable experience. I found this tour highly entertaining and educational, therefore I enjoyed my time during this guided tour. Thanks a lot for that spectacular day!
We did the 4h bike/walking tour with Virve in July 2015 and we had lots of fun discovering the beautiful city of Tallinn with her. She is a fantastic tourguide with lots of energy and knows many interesting storys of her country. We can warmly recommend her, our best tourguide ever!!!
Andrei hat uns auf def 3 stündigen Tour durch die Altstadt viel über die Geschichte von Estland, aber auch über die Menschen die hier leben und ihre Kultur erzählt. Es waren absolut spannende 3 Stunden. Sehr eindrücklich war auch der Besuch des russischen Marktes! Wir können diese Tour sehr empfehlen!
You simply cannot go wrong with this "free" walking tour of a beautiful city. Mairi was amazing, and the ccity of Taillinn even better. St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Berlin --they have nothing on Taillinn.
Warm-hearted Estonians, Martin & Ulane! Yesterday I & my husband joined a Lahema guide tour, which was really wonderful & impressive as a nature lover. Before starting, I sprained my ankle on the way to the Info office in the morning but I just proceeded the journey because I was really looking forward to it. However, the pain was getting stronger as time goes by until I could not walk any more. Our guide Martin was very considerate enough to take care of me & ask how I was at every stop. I liked his extensive knowledge about Estonian history as well as anything we bumped into. One thing that I regretted was my poor understanding of English. I wanna call him professor Martin. After I got back from Lahema, his boss Ulane & her sister spared their time to take me to the ER in the city. They sacrificed their resting hours for me. As a foreigner, I would have been miserable without their help! I wanna come back here again some day & meet them again! Fortunately I got much better today and in a few days I think I can continue my schedule and return home happily. Martin & Ulane will be remembered as antoher kind people of Estonia, which became one of my favorite countries. Pls give me your email addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org. Many blessings to all of you!
We went on a tour to Lahemaa National Park with Geron as our guide. We loved the tour and found Geron to be very knowledgeable, friendly and easy-going. I would highly recommend taking this tour - we learned about the nature and history of Estonia and were never bored. The following day we took the walking tour around Old Town with Mairi. She was also very knowledgeable and friendly and the tour was very informative. Well worth it, especially considering its free and only need to tip - which we certainly think she deserved.
We booked the trip in de tourist office Our guide was a very sociable man called Martin who was very informative throughout the whole tour.We were taken to lots of places and had a pleasnt lunch on route. The salmon was great. 19july 2015!! Visited July 2015
Today I took a tour with Katryn (Kate) to Lahemaa and I enjoyed everything we did. Katryn was very knowledgeable, being a history student. She answered all our questions and gave us a real insight on the people and culture of Estonia. I would have had to rent a car to get to all these places and even then, I wouldn't know as much information as Katryn did! We were able to do a good deal of walking, not just sitting in the SUV. The lunch was delicious and filling.I liked the manor that was being restored, the Soviet submarine base and the bogs the best. Thanks, Katryn, for a wonderful day!! You were awesome!
Olga was a great guide and took us to some fantastic places which we would never have found ourselves.
it was amazing day with our great guide olga at coastal clifs and another nice day with Kris in lahema national park thanks for 2 beautiful days in estonia
We were in Tallinn for one day and did a 4 hour bike/walking tour with Catherine. The tour was the perfect length and blended history with other interesting anecdotes and facts. Thank you Catherine for a great tour!!
We had walking tour of Tallinn lead by Henri. He was enthusiastic and informative We loved Tallinn and Henri was an excellent guide.
We had Wednesday a very interesting daytrip to Lahemaa National Park. Nature, culture and history all together with the nice guide Geron.
We had a fantastic day on this tour! We were amazed to find just the two of us on this tour with our guide George and his friend and fellow tour guide Martin who was learning the tour. On a warm sunny July day we visited an ancient monestry, an old prison, picked and ate wild blueberries in the forest, visited a rocky beach and watched yachts sail by, had a leisurely lunch in lovely Haapsalu (could have stayed there all afternoon:-)) and then en route back to Tallinn visited a deserted airbase and 3 old German manor houses in various states of ruin. George spoke perfect English, was extremely knowledgeable, patient answering our many questions, has a great sense of humour and is really easy company to be with. I can highly recommend doing the western coast tour, it is well worth the time to see a more of Estonia.
Walking tour of Tallinn - I booked a private 4 hour walking tour as we wanted to see the Russian Prison as well as Old Town. Our guide tried to take a short cut only to find the gate was locked. She started to go around the block then realized we were going the wrong way. When we got close to the prison, construction from a new apartment complex prevented us from going the way she had hoped so we had to go around another couple of blocks. In all we lost about 45 minutes due to detours. We enjoyed Old Town and the places she took us to which had great views of the city. We just thought she could have been better prepared in the beginning.
Henri made the tour interesting and fun. It was also a good way to see various parts of the Old Town along with the ghost stories that happened in it. Very nice.
The tour was very informative. It was interesting and fun. Our guide, Henri, was friendly and is always able to answer all our questions regarding the tour. He speaks English (and also Japanese) fluently so we could easily understand when he was conducting the tour. Very highly recommended.
We booked the Lahemaa National Park tour in Tallinn, it was amazing. Our guide Martin was also very cool. He was friendly, funny and very knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend this trip.
Thanks, Henri, we really enjoyed finding out and seeing your beautiful city. Would recommend this walking tour!!!
Can't say enough about our wonderful three hour Tallinn tour with Henri. He is such a good story teller and he is a great communicator. We loved walking with him and he was so interesting and able to answer all of our questions. He was very accommodating when we needed a tea break and he always managed to maneuver well around the crowds. He gave us advice on how to return to ferry, where to eat lunch, and where to shop. Tallinn would not have been nearly as interesting or fun without our wonderful tour.
We took the Best of Tallinn 3 hour walking tour with Henri today and had a great time walking around the winding streets of the city! Our tour was the perfect mix of history and casual conversation about Estonian culture. It was a fun way to spend our afternoon and a great introduction to Tallinn-we give it 5 out of 5 stars :)
Merily zeigte uns Anfang Juni 2015 die Tallinner Altstadt. Es war eine sehr schöne Führung, die bestimmt in Erinnerung bleiben wird. Geschichte, Politik, bauliche Besonderheiten… Merily lies keine Fragen unbeantwortet. Ihre unglaublich fröhliche und nette Art uns die Stadt, mit ihren vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten, näher zu bringen, war ein echtes Highlight. Gisela, Monika, Wolfgang und Heinz
Wir hatten im Juni 2015 eine private Führung, in perfektem deutsch,durch die Altstadt vonTallinn. Es hat uns sehr viel Spass gemacht und die Zeit verging wie im Flug. Merily hat uns eine Einführung über die Geschichte Estlands gegeben und viele, nicht nur kulturelle, Informationen über die Stadt. Tallinn, mit einer private Führung in einer kleinen Gruppe zu erkunden, ist perfekt. Ein toller Tag, vielen Dank
We went on the Lahemaa tour last week and it was an excellent experience. Our guide Kris was very knowledgeable, as well as having an excellent sense of humor. He took great care of us all day and gave us a wonderful introduction to the natural and historical side of Estonia. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the country!
Our guide, Henri, made every part of the tour interesting, with a mixture of facts and anecdotes.
Thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour led by Mart. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. Very interesting to listen to and one of the best walking tours we have been on in a while. Highly recommend :)
A trip to Estonia is incomplete without visiting Lahemaa National Park, and the best way to see it is with Traveller Tours. We had a fantastic day with our guide John, who couldn't have been more enthusiastic or informative. We were able to see all the highlights of the National Park & sample the world's greatest salmon! Thank you so much.
My wife and I had the pleasure and luck to do our tour of Lahemaa National Park with the full of energy and fun George and his at the time trainee Eliise. This was a few weeks ago and I'm sure by now, she's doing a great job of leading tours on her own. We had a beautiful day and the pair made the most of it by taking us (only three in the group that day) to the pretty coast of Estonia with a couple old mansions and a bog walk thrown in for good measure. The lunch stop was great too and well worth the €10 extra charged for the setting alone but also for one of the best salmon meals of many in the region. In the end though, the sights would have been great but non-essential without the humorous running commentary from our two young guides who shared interesting tidbits of info and kept us laughing from place to place. It's obvious how much they love their country, the park and especially their "jobs" and you can't help but be sucked into that feeling yourself. We thought about renting a car to do the excursion and very glad we didn't.
We had such an awesome day at the nationalpark lahemaa with martin! :-)
It was pouring rain in the morning so I was kinda questioning my decision to take a trip to Haapsalu that day. But fortunately, we ended up having great weather and chased the sun! As we weren't able to see everything from our planned tour due to a drag race happening at the air base, our guide Geron took us to some cool places that you normally see on a different tour. You could say that we got the best of both! I'd recommend doing any of these tours if you want to see more of Estonia than just Tallinn. And if you get Geron as your guide: lucky you, enjoy his great sense of humor!
Great tour of the sights in the park with John. Very knowledgeable and entertaining, learnt a lot about the park and Estonians generally. Thanks I'd recommend the tour to anyone.
Had an enjoyable day with Katrin - great local knowledge and very helpful. One of the better walking tours we've been on.
Thanks to our guide Henri, it was an light enlightening walking tour, well done! Also, thanks to traveller.ee for arranging such an excellent guide, knowledgable and fluent in English, in such a short notice.
We stayed in Tallinn for 4 days and enjoyed both the free city tours with Heli and the day-trip to Lahemaa National Park with John. An Estonian would say it was "pretty OK", which means in English "Wonderful". We still have the excellent taste of smoked salmon in the mouth ;-). Thanks for allowing us to have learned more about your country!
Thank you for a lovely tour of Lahemma Park Our guide, Martin, has got great knowledge of history, and fauna and flora. I highly recommend this tour to everyone. Irena
We had fantastic day with George in Lahemaa national park. We had tons of questions related to history and he knew all the asnwers which made our day really interesting and fun. I wish all Estonians were more like him and have so much energy and fun all the time. Thank you so much!
Fantastic tour led by Ann. She was knowledgeable,funny and had a great voice, enabling us to actually hear her! Her English was excellent also. I think she is the best tour guide we have ever experienced. Wonderful city.
I can recommend 2 book this tour!!! Our guides were very friendly and knew a lot of the city, it's history and culture. We had so much fun and learned a lot. The old city is lovely and driving further out the old town with bicycles was a great experience !!!
We joined the very nice free walking tour with Katrin. Two hours of information, stories and tales about Tallinn, Estonia and Estonian people. It was a great tour with a fantastic guide! Tänan, Katrin!!!
Our group of three couples from Texas had an awesome day in Tallinn with Olga last week. We all agree that she is the best tour guide we have ever had. She is very knowledgeable, professional, loves Tallinn, and has a sweet personality. We learned a lot about this great city in the one day we were there. Our group travels a lot together and do these personal tours often. We always have great fun and she just added so much to it. Our sense of humor just clicked with hers. We felt like she was our daughter early into the tour. Thanks, Olga!
We had an awesome day in Laheema National Park with our awesome, funny and brilliant guide Jevgeni! My parents and I absolutely loved the trip, we learnd so much from Jevgeni, who told us interesting things about Estonia´s culture and people. We also had funny conversations about Harry Potter and Pippi Longstocking :-) And also Jevgeni knows funny songs about German grammar, we were totally impressed! Thank you so much for a perfect day - we will come back one day!
Absolutely awesome tour of the Old Town in Tallin. Our guide's, Jüri's, enthusiasm and joy were contagious. You could see he really enjoys what he is doing and is great at it: great historical knowledge and a wonderful sense of humour, open to chat and provide additional information, very friendly. The tour practically flew by - when I looked at my watch I couldn't believe how late it is, since the trip was so engaging. I can definitely recommend touring with Jüri, he will make you fall in love with Tallin.
The tour guide Catherine was amazing, great communication and knowledge! I trully recommend if you want to know the history and fun facts about this amazing city!
We are a group from Denmark that had a guided tur to Lahemaa National Park on Maj 15th. We had an excellent guide called Olga. She was well informed , did a great job in bringing us to beautifuld spots and managed to keep the group in great spirit. Her English was remarkable. The daytrip is an aboslute "must-do" when you visit Estonia. i recommand Tallinn Traveller Tour. You wont be disappointed. Thank you Olga for a wonderful day. Many regards from the 7 Danes.
Daytrip to Talehaa: best experience of the stay!! Great program with beautiful nature and sowjet relicts that I've never seen before. I can only strongly recommend it, it is worth every cent. And don't miss the delicious lunch that is offnered in the tour - one of the best meals I've eaten in Estonia. Special thanks to the absolutly great guide Jüri (George): so friendly, so many facts and fun and perfect English speaking - best guide :-) Thanks from Germany Katharina
We did the Lahemaa national park tour yesterday with Olga. The tour was fantastic-really interesting, and a great selection of different activities-with a particular highlight for me being the Captain's village-climbing the soviet watchtower and seeing the maritime museum and meeting its owner. Olga was one of the best guide's I've ever had.-really knowledgable about her country's history, mythology and traditions, interesting and so much fun to spend a day with-thank you v much!
We had an awesome trip a couple weeks ago. The guide (George) was absolutely fun and entertaining (his somersaults are amazing :P ). His knowledge about the estorian history is remarkable! The lunch was the best salmon we ever had! The host was friendly and made ourself feel comfortable. Overall the whole tour was worth it.
Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the guide I went on this tour last year. We were a group of 4 incl the guide. He did so much driving and still had enough energy to tell us so much about this area. He knew so many hidden places, it was like a little explorer tour! Love it! Thank you!
Wonderful tour I have been on last year. The guide was great and the tour was big fun, the lunch was very good! Highly recommended, I liked it very much. Thank you for everything!
Last week we did the Lahemma National Park Tour with our guide George. We were lucky having the fist day of sunshine this year which made the tour even more awesome than it would have been otherwise. George gave an interesting overview on Estonias nature and culture. We went to some different places (a walk through bog, an abandoned submarine station, a waterfall, a canyon) and had an amazing lunch at Käsmo. George made the tour really interesting and funny by his own inimitable way of telling us historical stuff and fun facts. Thanks for the memorable day!
The Swiss Junior Nationalteams in Curling made a great tour with guide Liine. Just brilliant!!! Scary stories, interesting facts, scintillating wit, coherent language - and of course the hot chocolate afterwards. Thank you!
We just finished the tour with our guide liine. Although it was snowing we did not mind the cold weather, the stories made it all worth it. And of course the hot chocolate afterwards. Best thing to do to get to know the city in a short time. Greetings!
Liine showed us around Tallinn Old Town on Dec 31st. She spoke excellent English with a wonderful sense of humour that made our experience particularly enjoyable. She was very knowledgeable and imparted just enough detail on buildings, history and events to give us the information without over-loading our heads with too much detail. However, when detail was requested Liine was always forthcoming. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip.
Despite the shocking near-freezing rain, we had a very nice time with Katrin, who bravely guided us around the Old Town. Katrin is a very informative and considerate person and I would not hesitate in recommending her for any tour.
I took the Coastal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski tour with my family this week and was frankly disappointed. We were accompanied by 2 other tour guides who had come along to learn. They took the best seats in the bus while we were stuck in the back. At lunchtime, the 3 guides sat with 2 customers - who could ask all the questions they wanted, while we were left alone. On the bus, it was difficult to know when the chatting between the 3 guides had stopped and the information had started, particularly as the radio was on most of the time. Just a thought, but if you had a guide who had lived through some of the Soviet era, they could have provided a lot more insight.
Tallinn was a great place with friendly people and Liina was no exception. The walk revealed places we had missed during our stay, both her energetic and knowledgeable way of explaining tales and legends was exceptional. recommend this to anyone but be aware there are plenty of steps and cobbles.
Last month i had the chance to make 2 different tours with Tallinn Traveller, i made Lahema National Park with Iida-Leena and Coastal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski with Mart. Both tours were amazing. Iida and Mart were great, friendly, good communicators and they explained a lot about Estonia and the Estonians. On both tours, i had the chance to left the beautiful but tourist-crowded Tallinn for a couple of days and travel to Estonian countryside and somehow experience the Estonian way of life. Nature, waterfalls, Manor houses, beautiful landscapes, old Soviet airplanes, missile shelters, old submarine base and.... a swimming MOOSE! :D Thank you Iida-Leena, Mart and Tallinn Traveler staff for giving me 2 memorable days in Estonia! I felt in love with Estonia, it's a wonderful country and i'm sure i will be back one day! :)
We had a very informative old town tour with a wonderful guide who met the six of us at the cruise dock on September 4th. She gave us time to stop whenever we wanted to take pictures and never rushed us. So much better than taking a bus tour with 40 extra people. Would recommend this tour highly.
Wonderfully informative and educational bike tour led by Kathrine. Highly recommend this tour.
It was a very enjoyable and very informative tour of wonderful nature. The meal and walkaround the captain's village was great. The keepers of the captain's school are great and very friendly people. Our guide IDA was very good. We should have multi-day tour with her. I want to give a special thank to Ida for her enthusiasm and explanation.
We are from Germany and we were in Tallinn with 8 Friends on the 20/09/2014 and had a private bike tour with Katrin. She was well-informed. It was a super great tour. Thank you Katrin!
Had a fantastic day on the Lahemaa National Park tour with Kristiina - she was awesome and took us to some beautiful places. Definitely recommend this tour.
Perfect! Really enjoyed my day. Nice views, nature and a wonderfull meal at the fishers place! Small groups and friendly guide with a lot of info and details. Superb!
My wife, adult son and I did the Old Town walking tour with Mart in late August. a great tour - interesting, moderate pace, acknowledged different perspectives about history and recent events. very willing to answer questions. Mart is a credit to his country. while no donation was demanded, we happily provided several Euros per person.
We did the Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski tour with our guide Iida-Leena. We've spent the last six weeks touring various Baltic States and this was by far our best tour. Lida-Leena was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and really gave us a feel for what makes Estonia and Estonians tick. Our rating - Brilliant!
I did Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski tour with great tour guide Kristiina. I enjoyed the trip a lot - I always like to have another look at the city and its surroundings so the trip was just perfect for me. Many places I've never thought they existed, great atmosphere, nice stories. You can see some photos from the tour on my blog also - http://gorgeousplanet.blogspot.com/2014/08/estonia-wycieczka-z-tallinn-traveler.html Thanks! It was a nice day ;)
Myself, husband and two children had such an interesting 2 hours with the lovely guide Merily. Tallinn is a really beautiful town with such a history and our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate whilst telling us all about it. We were only there for a day but could have stayed much longer and plan to go back soon. Can't recommend the Tallinn Old Town Walking Tour enough - great guide, a good lot of information given about the history and culture of Tallinn and Estonia, lovely surroundings, what more could you want? Thanks for making it such a great day for us!
Durante il mio soggiorno a Tallin ho prenotato una escursione per Lahemaa. Guardando sulla guida Lonely Planet, ho trovato City Bike che propone questo tour della Traveller. Il costo per l'intera giornata è stato di 49 euro. L'organizzazione è stata perfetta!! Le guide sono ragazzi giovani ed io ho avuto la fortuna di capitare con Juri. Sprizza gioia di vivere da tutti i pori e ha un sorriso meraviglioso, sinceramente all'inizio ho avuto qualche momento di esitazione vedendolo così con tutto questo "argento vivo" addosso, invece non solo è stato affidabilissimo come driver, ma è stato eccezionale come guida. Ha una preparazione storica encomiabile ed è coinvolgente nei suoi racconti quando mostra i siti ex sovietici o le bellezze della natura senza che mai il suo sorriso venga meno. Durante il tour si vedono paesaggi molto diversi tra loro, devo dire che mi è piaciuto veramente tanto. Il pranzo, che non è incluso, ma è a un prezzo contenuto (10 euro) è stato delizioso. Abbiamo pranzato a Kasmu ospiti della famiglia che gestisce il piccolo, ma molto caratteristico museo, e che ha cucinato per noi. Il salmone è stato a dir poco divino. Ancora un grande grazie a Juri e ancora complimenti per la sua professionalità e per la sua preparazione.
We went on the ghost tour in Tallinn in August 2014. Liina was an amazing tour gide, she's a very good story teller!! Also she has a nice sense of humor. We've already been two days in Tallinn, but during the tour we saw new interesting places. Afterwards we went together to Pierres Cholocats for a nice cup of hot chocolat! Price, including the drink, was 13 euro and well worth it!
We are from California and were in Tallinn with family (four adults and five kids) on August 11 and had the good fortune to have a private tour with Kathryn. She was well-informed, friendly and made a special effort to answer our questions. We highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Tallinn for a day or more. Thanks again Kathryn!
I went on the Lahemaa Day Tour and had a great time. I made new friends with other tourists, enjoyed the salmon lunch and all of the things we explored during the tour - Jagala Waterfall, Viru Bog, old soviet remains, etc. Mart was a wonderful guide who took us to all the things mentioned in the tour description and also ventured off into finding a new beach to explore as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Estonia - it's a nice break from the Old Town touristy feel.
Good morning,it was great our tour with you. It was yesterday and we went to Lahemaa national park with our guide Ira, we enjoyed it very much and the lunch was great even with friends we didn't invite.♥♥♥
A little minus was the fact that during summertime it's not really dark by 8pm. Maybe it could be a little bit later? But the lack of darkness did in no way ruin the tour atmosphere thanks to the great storytelling! The stories were interesting and spooky at the same time and found out lots of interesting things about Tallinn Old town. Totally worth the 13€, plus the hot chocolate at the end of the tour was amazing. Can totally recommend the tour!
Had a blast with Iida on our trip to Lahemaa. She was incredibly knowledgeable, charming, and easy going. She had tons of fun facts about Estonia to share with us throughout. My only complaint is I wish this was a multi-day trip rather than just one day. Regardless, it was a beautiful glimpse into many of the wonders that Lahemaa had to offer.
I've had an interesting, very well organized and informative tour to Narva with a wonderful guide Reelika! Before Narva we saw also Kohtla-Jarve, Sillamae, an old train station and a factory, a ghost town, a tank T-34, a lot of industrial things that I like so! I'm Russian but it was very interesting to see this part of a post soviet territory! We were only 5 and Reelika drive us in a car herself. It was a excellent day!!!!
Visiter Tallinn hors des sentiers battus , voilà ce que vous réserve ce superbe tour ...prison désaffectée, friche industriel de l'air soviétique, maison de pêcheur en bois superbement réhabilité ... Bref si vous fait un tour par Tallinn ... Ça vaut le détour !!! Sans oublier notre merveilleuse guide Katrin ....she was soo.... great , wonderfull If you visit Tallinn ask for this guide... she share her expérience without limits ... So just do it ... Enjoy
Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski Tour was spectacular, so glad I went! Highly recommended. Our guide Iida-Leena was fantastic.
Went on the Lahemaa National Park Tour, great summer weather, fantastic tour, best I've ever been on! Iida is a really good guide and also answered our thousands of questions very patiently and competently. Tour participants were very mixed, old, young, all nationalities.
We went on the Lahemaa national park tour on the 16th July 2014 and our guide was George. He was a very knowledgeable and great person as well as an excellent organizer. He was very friendly and engaging we were having such fun talking a lot about mushrooms and day to day life in Estonia. The fish lunch in lovely Käsmu was delicious and the people there had lots of character. We especially love the bog walk. Thanks a lot George. Hopefully we meet again on another tour.
I arranged a Best of Tallinn car and walking tour for our group of 8 cruising in June 2014. Iida was our guide and was so engaging and informative that we all enjoyed the day immensely. Her English is excellent and she shared her knowledge of the history and local life in a way that made us all want to know more. She was unfailingly gracious and patient in answering our questions and took us to a wonderful lunch spot out of the touristy area. Everyone complimented me on finding such a great tour! Thanks Iida and Tallinn Traveller for making Tallinn a highlight of our trip.
We took the tour 20/07/14 with Iida as our guide. She was great, and the tour was wonderful. We never would have seen some of the things we did if on our own. Iida's English was excellent, and she was humorous and informative.
We booked a private walking and bike tour for the four of us. Our guide was Indrik who was very knowledgeable and showed us the sites of beautiful Tallinn. It was one of the highlights of our Baltic cruise. The first part was a walking tour through the old town. It was early so the streets were nice and quiet. We enjoyed our coffee break in a nice cafe before our bike tour. Thanks Indrik for an enjoyable glimpse of your beautiful city.
Our visit to Tallinn was a highlight of our 2 week vacation. Our guide, Linna, was fantastic...one of the best we have had among many tours in Europe. She was friendly and engaging. Our kids loved all of her stories....especially the ghost stories! Our group encompassed 3 generations...from 9 years old to 77 and everyone had a great time! We liked this tour in particular with both the biking and walking components.
We had a great trip with George on Saturday June 28th to Narva. This was a great experience and George a great guide. We strongly recommend this tour, to all, who wants to understand about estonian history.
Took the Tallinn Old Town Walking Tour with our guide Aurelia. A great way to see this fantastic part of the city in a more intimate setting than the sometimes crowded free tours. Only 7 in our group which was great. Aurelia was a fantastic guide with a very outgoing personality. The 2 hours was just the right amount of time to get a good overview of the town and is also a great was to orientate yourself to continue exploring afterwards. Would definitely recommend this tour for those who enjoy a good walking tour.
Iida and Anneli were both very pleasant and friendly and our tour with Iida was wonderful! She gave us a great idea of the historical significance of what we saw and extra opportunities for excitement if we so chose to do so. It was well worth a days outing to see more of beautiful Estonia and learn more about the culture, people, architecture, land and we even saw a mouse, a frog and a spider during our journey through the bog. Though I'm sure she gets asked the same questions by different tourists, Iida answered all of our tourist questions with great energy and generosity and was a wealth of good information regarding all of Tallinn and Estonia. Thanks very much! :)
My buddy and I signed up for the pub crawl with Tallinn Traveller Tours and were not disappointed. Marii and Kristiina were our extremely friendly and accommodating guides. They showed us several places that the locals frequent and gave us great insight into Tallinn history and culture. We would not hesitate to book a tour with Tallinn Traveller in the future. Thanks again!
I want to thank Jevgeni for a wonderful day tour in Narva. We learned so much- in his calm was of speaking he was able to explain the history and plight of Estonia . He was a real professional, always smiling and accomodating. Highly recommended as was Marii who organized this for us. I shall use their services again for other trips, as I am presently living in Tallinn and want to see and learn as much as posible while here.
My family and I, five of us, scheduled a private tour since we came on a cruise and were trying to avoid the mob scene. George, our guide was fantastic, he had tons of energy and you could tell how much he loved relaying the history of Tallinn and Estonia in general. Our private tour was about 2 1/2 hours, George showed us a little extra after we were enjoying ourselves so much. Over by the university we were fortunate enough to see some of the exhibits being put together for the Lillie fair if I can remember correctly. Tallinn is a beautiful little town surrounded by medieval walls with a couple gorgeous churches and quaint side streets. I cannot say enough how surprised and how much we will cherish our tour with George.
My friend and I went on the day trip to Lahemaa National Park in June 2014 and had a fantastic time. Our guide Jüri (George) was fantastic - the most enthusiastic guide we have had on our trip so far. He made sure we saw what we wanted to see, and was very perceptive and receptive to what we wanted to do. He was very knowledgable and told great stories of the history and culture of Estonia. We even had an interesting political conversation that was objective and open-minded. He was also very clear and organised in guiding us and made it all very easy and smooth. Although the weather was a little dreary on the day, he was very positive and we had lots of fun! We really appreciate Jüri's efforts to make the tour what it was - a stark contrast to stock-standard tour guides who struggle to deviate from the set course/script.
It was such an amazing tour. Marc and I would always be part of the tour again. Our tour guide was Jüri and he was brilliant. Had made us laugh all the time and he wasn't not always funny but also very informative. We learnt a lot about the history and also had time to digest all the information while the fantastic lunch we had at the Baltic Sea Side in a boat. All in all it was fantastic every time again. Thank so much, Isabell and Marc.
On Monday 12th of May me and my classmates spent a very interesting and fun hour seeing Tallinn thanks to Tallinn Traveller Tours and their fabulous guide Aurelia. We had already had quite of a long day but because of the guide’s enthusiastic attitude, great vocabulary and intensive and confident way of speech we more than managed to stay awake. We actually enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. Aurelia had lots of interesting information to share with us and she was even able to make the learning experience entertaining with her accurate, informative but also humoristic stories about Tallinn’s history. Her spoken English was excellent and she seemed to be very enthusiastic about her topic which definitely came through to the whole audience and made it even more fascinating for us to listen to. We were lucky to have her as our tour guide. Would definitely recommend Tallinn Traveller Tours and Aurelia for everyone visiting the city.
We opted for the 2 hour group walking tour of the old town, and would recommend this to anyone going to Tallinn. As it happened there were only the two of us, but our guide was so bubbly and interesting that it great fun. It really felt as though we were being shown around Tallinn by an old friend. The communication before the tour was great (we did it all by email) and was all very easy. Ann was our tour guide, and she gave us a lot of interesting information that I don't think we would have easily found out (plus it's so much easier being told than reading lots of guidebooks!!) as well as local knowledge - and she made us laugh so much!
Well done Tallinn Traveller Tours and thanks to our wonderful guide Heli, one of the best tour guides you could ever hope for. A wonderfully bubbly and energetic young lady with a real talent and passion for storytelling. Superb English too. Over the 2 hours she told lots of great ghost tales with an wicked sense of humour and captivated her audience totally. Among these ghostly tales she added a few other historic details and quirky, funny anecdotes. You cover quite a distance walking around the beautiful streets of the old town but you get a real great feel for the town and some wonderful views from the viewing platforms at the top of the town. It can be a bit steep uphill but everyone should be able to manage and we'll worth the views. Heli organised a nice drink for everyone at a really cosy cafe at the end of the tour which is a really nice way to finish off a great tour. So where you're next in Tallinn check out this Ghost tour and if all their tour guides are as good as Heli you'll have a great evening. 10/10 to Tallinn Traveller Tours, great value at 13€, well done and thank you!
Myself and two grown-up daughters did the Paldiski tour with Mart during our too-short 1 week trip to Tallinn. What a great day out that was. Full of surprises (I won't spoil them). There was only one other couple in the group (Tony & Susan, if you read this ...thanks for being such great company). It felt more like a day out with friends than an organised tour. Mart was more than happy to be flexible on the itinerary as we worked around the changable weather and enjoyed a little side-trip searching unsuccessfully for a mythical soviet bunker :). Mart's a funny, smart guy and really made the day. If you meet him ask him to do his hilarious impersonation of an annoyed Estonian waitress. Priceless.

Last year I did the Lahemaa national park tour and also the Old town free tour. It was great and very informative. This time I decided for the Paldiski tour. Our guide Karin was excellent and we had a super wonderful day! I can highly recommend Tallin Traveller tours! I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
Wonderful day trip to beautiful Lahemaa National Park with Kalev, a great and interesting tour guide who was ever helpful and friendly. Also, enjoyed an informative Old Town walking tour with our entertaining tour guide Heli! Would highly recommend both these tours! (:
I joined the awesome walking tour with Heli. Thanks for all these interesting stories and silly jokes!
Yesterday I came across a Tallinn travellers Tours flyer. I forgot to write a good review of the Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski I did 2 years ago..... . Very very good tour and excellent guide (johanna maybe?) everything accurately explained.
Heli was our guide around Tallinn on 23 Nov. What a fantastic and enthusiastic guide. She made the Old Town come alive and her delivery and knowledge was impeccable. Thanks Heli!
Wonderful day trip to Lahemaa wth Kalev! My partner and I especially enjoyed the walks through the woods and crossing the bog ponds. Kalev was an exceptional guide!
Did the free walking tour today. I thoroughly enjoyed this and found it very informative and our guide charming. Her name is Hellii (?) and she was challenged by 3 people in the group when she told us that Tallinn was bombed by the Russians in 1944 - 300 planes she said and it destroyed a large part of the city. Her challengers said that Russia didn't have an air force so it can't be. I just googled - Wikepedia confirmed exactly what she said. So, there you go - the tour comes with a highly recommended from me.
Yesterday we took the Lahemaa National Park tour and had a great day. The guide made everything interesting, with lots of stories about life in Estonia. The salmon at the lunch stop was absolutely deliscious and the visit to the disused soviet submarine base was rather different.
We had a fantastic time in Tallinn last month thanks to Aurelia and Tallinn Traveller Tours. Aurelia was such an incredible, amazing and knowledgable guide! She was so very enthusiastic about showing us around this historic city and her English was great. We would happily recommend Aurelia and Tallinn Traveller Tours to anybody.
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Ann (blonde hair) last week (August 12th). We had a 3 hour private tour. Ann showed us around both the historic district and parts of the new town. Ann was extremely knowledgeable and shared with us many historical and fun facts about Tallinn and Estonia. We were very impressed and we highly recommend Ann for a tour guide. Visiting Tallinn was a fantastic experience.
joined the old town walking tour on today. the guide, Hely, did a great job introducing this history of the monuments as well as Estonia. through her jokes and informations given as we walked the old town, I do learn a lot about this beautiful place.
Great tour from Mart. He explained the history brilliantly and really brought the many century-long struggles to life.
I went on the Haapsalu tour which was great because you see the things in Estonia you otherwise not would see. I actually use this review to give some ideas because you haven´t give this tour so much. The second visit is a old monastery which you also visit in the paldiski tour, maybe a visit to another place is better so you see completely different things. The other is I didn´t found the visit of the little harbor, for me it didn´t add something extra. Although these points I will recommend the tour because you see lots of things and the stories behind the sightseeings are interesting. The last point is that this tour is often cancelled maybe its an idea to do this tour on another day to see of there are more people who book this tour or to do the day on 2 days so people have more possibilities to do these tours, although I don´t know of you already looked to these options.
Great trip, you get to see something else of estonia. You don´t only see nature but also a lot of culture which you otherwise never would have seen. The guides were also nice and funny. trip I would definitely recommend
Helli (hopefully I spelled it right) was our tour, and she was excellent! This was by far the best tour we had this two week vacation. She gave us a lot of insight into Estonia's history and culture. As soon as I got home watched at her recommendation 'A Singing Revolution' and 'Disco and Atomic War' (thank you). She was funny, very well informed and spoke excellent English. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.
Seven of us booked trip to Lahemaa National Park in July 2013. Our guide Kaido. Very good day trip. Our guide drove us around the whole day and answered all our questions. Kaido has a vast knowledge and told us everything we wanted to know about Estonia. Kaido was a really fun guy and all of us had a great day out. We couldn't have done the trip ourselves. We really enjoyed the trip. Thank you
Seven of us booked a second trip with our guide Kaido. Very good day trip. Our guide drove us around the whole day and answered all our questions. Kaido has a vast knowledge and told us everything we wanted to know about Estonia. Kaido was a really fun guy and all of us had a great day out. We couldn't have done the trip ourselves. Thank you Samir and the gang from London.
Kaido did a very good job with interesting information about the history of the people of Estonia. The girls in the information center were very friendly and helpful.
It was our first time in Estonia and wanted to get into the countryside without hiring a car. We took the Lahemma National Park tour which was guided by Karin. I live right beside the Killarney National Park and we do nothing like this. Karin was great and has since become a friend. The variety experienced on the tour made the day out feel only like a few hours. Do it if you have the chance.
When I travel, I crave new and different experiences. The only way I can describe Narva & Eastern Bloc Tallinn tour is an absolute adventure. Going to the Russian/Estonian Border seeing relics of the Old Communist Occupation in the east and learning about the immense history of the region were all highlights. The guides were great. I'd go back again in a heartbeat, even if it's just for the herring.
A very nice day trip in a small bus, which I did together with 7 others, plus the guide, Mart, who was not only most friendly and pleasant but also extremely knowledgable, and able to give good answers to all the questions we threw at him ! A highlight of the day trip was the excellent meal we enjoyed at the museum ( !! ) in Käsmu - lovely salmon and potato ; it couldn't have tasted any better and there was even some cake afterwards, all for only 8 Euros a head ( i.e. for the food ; the tour cost 49 Euros per person ). For that we were also treated to a short guided tour of the boat & ship museum next door, which contains many interesting maritime artefacts, as used during the last hundred years or more. The coastline with all the forest is unspoilt and lovely, and very well worth experiencing. The bogland too was interesting ; and Mart's knowledge of natural history provided us with everything else we needed to know ! The tour is to be HIGHLY recommended, in every way !!
What an amazing company, with amazing tour guides! I was lucky enough to experience a personal tour, during the winter season with three guides, as they were creating a new tour to bring in for the summer season. Spent the day exploring several hidden spots of Estonia. Highlights included the Padise monastery, Haapsalu & Ungru Castle. Each guide was full of interesting information about each place we visited and definitely have a real love for Estonia. I couldn't have asked for a better experience as a lone traveller. Thanks guys!!
A great day trip to Lahemaa! Unfortunatly I don't remember the name of our guide, but he took us in wonderful places and we ate good salmon at lunch stop!
MAIRI was wonderful guide for my group of 35 persons. Her commentary was an excellent balance of historical facts., humorous anecdotes and mysterious folktales. Mairi has a strong melifulous voice but what I particularly enjoyed was how she mixed a sense of humour with an edge of personal cynicism. I think she could well expand her career as professional guide to, with a little work on the script, and become a celebrity standup comedian.
A friend and I were thrilled to be taken on one of the first full tours of Narva & the Eastern Bloc from Tallinn. We spent more than 12 hours covering incredible ground with a very wide variety of historical, political and natural sights. Our host was informative and enthusiastic and very accommodating with a last-minute booking. Even if you've got a small group of two or three people interested, it's well worth inquiring about a private tour any day of the week, beyond the standard Saturdays that they suggest.
My girlfriend and me did the tour last week with Karin as our guide and it was amazing. Although it started a bit slow with the first stop not that overwhelming it speeded up a lot and was really a great experience. We especially liked the tasty smoked salmon for lunch and the walk through the bog. Karin was always friendly and helpful and did her very best to make us feel comfortable, what we enjoyed a lot. I would definitely recommend the tour to my friends, as it was one of the highlights of our trip.
First of all because we did not expect such a wonderful city and furthermore because we never had such a great guide before. Heli: We absolutely thank you for the best tour ever and a great time in a great city! We highly recommend this tour to everybody visiting Talinn and surely will come back to see some more and sing and dance along with the Estonians!
We arranged this excursion on the Internet as an 'off ship' excursion on 14 May 2013. It was excellent on every level, highly professional, personal attention from a very pleasant young man with stacks of knowledge. We would highly recommend this company to anyone and will not hesitate to book with them again particularly as it represents very good value for money apart from anything else.
We had a awesome day with Tarmo, our Tour Guide. We even shot some Videos which can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFpG9ab9ki0 At the end of the tour a little firework will await you ;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A956BkHj-B8 This tour is a must for every Estonia Visitor. See you next time.
My friends and I joined the Lahemaa National Park tour on Sunday 10th March 2013. We had a fantastic day and it was the highlight of our trip to Tallinn.
My parents and I joined the day trip on Sunday the 10th of March 2013. All of us, are not the museum types, so we figured out that this would be a great way to see a bit outside of Tallinn, and get a bit more of the Estonian culture and history by means of a local guiding us around. This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip (although Tallinn is gorgeous!!!). Nevertheless, you have no idea of the beauty of the countryside unless you go out of the city. Our tour guide (I hope I spell it correctly) Tarmo, took us to different places including the Jagala waterfalls, an old Russian Submarine base, and to the old maritime town Kasmu where we visited the old captain’s school (now a museum which is run by great people) and walked across the Baltic Sea to one of the Islands. Furthermore we got to try out one typical Estonian tradition: swinging on a group swing. Besides that Tarmo did not have a fixed time plan, which also left open some time for flexibility! Yes, this tour is very recommendable!! Thank you!
Ann gave us an amazing tour of the old Tallinn town. She was engaging and enjoyable, despite accommodating for close to 100 people. Definitely recommended.
This Lahemaa day trip was awsome.
Went on 29th december 2012 with my niece. Enjoyed every minute of the tour: it gets more and more adventurous as you keep seeing absolutely stunning landscapes. Excellent guide, plenty of explanations given and not banal or standard touristy info.
This was a fascinating day out, and such a refreshing change from the faux mediaeval tourist trap that is Tallin. A real insight into present and past life in Estonia and the beauties of the countryside. I think the highlight of the day was the discussion over lunch, and delicious food. I'd recommend this day trip highly to anyone who has an interest in history, politics, people, wildlife.......
Went to Lahemaa National Park on 2nd November, thoroughly enjoyed it! Best decision we made on holiday to book the tour to see more of Estonia than just the capital city. Tour was really relaxed and Mart our guide was a really nice guy and informative. I think my friend was rather fond of the Red Setters at the lunch stop!! Fantastic day out and I would recommend this company to anyone who goes to Tallinn! :D Thank you again Mart!
Recently went on a day trip to Lahemaa with our excellent guide Tarmo. I would recommend anyone visiting Tallinn to do this, as it really showed areas of Estonia off the beaten track. Absolutely brilliant especially the submarine base and the bog walk. Tarmo was fantastic, explaining about life in Estonia and the places we visited in depth. Thanks
My boyfriend and I did the funky bike tour on September 7th. It was great. We were able to see the "real" Tallin. The guide shared personal stories about her family and gave us quite a bit of information on Tallin's history. Overall, we thought this was one of the highlights of our 12 day cruise. Highly recommend it!
We spent 3 fantastic days in Tallin last August and fortunately we visited the Traveller Tours Office . It was a great tour, the information was very interesting and given with lots of humor. HELI i hope you'll get the OSCAR this year....you are absolutely professional. We love you!
After having spent a few amazing days in the stunningly beautiful city we wanted to get away to the countryside. We went on the Laheema National Park day trip with Cody. It was definately worth going! He is full of knowledge, cool stories and the whole tour is a bit away from the usual routes! Highly recommend the Bike Tours as well!
Fabulous tour thanks from all of us at Natural Elements Vacations Rentals. Tofino & Ucluelet, BC Canada
First, we did the Laheema Tour and enjoyed it so much, that we decided spontaneously to book a second trip to the West Coast. We had different tour guides (Kaur to the West Coast and Cody to Laheema) which we both felt, were absolutely enthusiastic about their jobs and, we spent two great days in beautiful Estonian nature with them and we received first hand impressions of the "story behind the scenery" - in every respect and as much as we could bear in just a few hours.... Thanks a lot you guys - your performance is excellent and far beyond the tourist standard !! Edeltrud & MIchael, Germany
It was a really great tour, without all the boring parts, because the information was given in an exciting way, with lots of humor! Thanks o lot, you made my day! :D
Great Tour, organization, guide, visited places, food, weather! Visit the office if you are in Tallinn: they will be really rich of worthy infos and suggestions!
Con mio marito e mio figlio di 8 anni, abbiamo partecipato al Lahemaa National Park Tour il 21 Agosto 2012 con la guida Cody ed un ragazzo tedesco. Tutto veramente fantastico: la tempistica, l'organizzazione, i luoghi visitati, la guida, il cibo (WOW), il tempo (pare che quando portano visitatori in tour ci sia sempre il sole o che smetta di piovere quando scendono dal minivan!!). Se vi recate a Tallinn, andate a trovarli assolutamente!
really really good. only took this day trip, which i considered as the "tourist option", due to lack of convenient public transport connections, but it was worth every penny. there's no way you could do so much in one day relying on buses or even driving yourself without being accompanied by a local. the guide (?)cody was great, very knowledgable and interesting, we were surprised to hear he'd only been doing it for a month, it seemed like he had years of experience and knowledge. all the stop-offs were interesting, varied and stunningly beautiful, and swimming in the bog was AMAZING. and the vegetarian lunch option - delicious! recommend 100 percent!
I had the great pleasure of participating in the "Tallinn Ghost Tour" guided by the hilarious Heli Jurisson on 14 August. With her tremendous enthusiasm and razor-sharp wit, she made the undead come alive with her magnificent storytelling.
Had a wonderful time at Lahemaa national park. Talked the whole way there and back to our guide. You will love the tour from start to finish. Both the history and the beauty were amazing.
My girlfriend wanted to check out nature, so we did the National Park day trip. We got the nature, all right . . . forests, the sea, and an intriguing walk through a mire . . . but we got much more. The guide, an extremely articulate and intelligent young man named Kaur, gave brilliant lessons in Estonian history and culture. The key is sitting up in front during at least part of the day trip and peppering him with questions. Kaur boasts an original, precocious, and uncompromising intellect, and based on some of his remarks about the other guides, I suspect they are also of high caliber. There is even an adventurous walk through of an abandoned Soviet submarine installation. If you really want to learn about Estonia, rather than just walk along the pretty streets of Tallinn, this tour is absolutely essential.
we bought the lahemaa national park and western coast, it was a great day thanks to our special and pleasant guide MART ! we have a wonderful reminder of our vacation
if you want to have a special night, you have to join this pubcrawl. You will visit special places you will never see if you are just a tourist in Tallinn! cheers
Fab funky bike tour in Tallinn with a very knowledgeable tour guide, Silja. If you are in Tallinn check it out at the tourist info in Old Town. Amazing ride away from the usual tourist attractions and even takes you to an old prison.
Durante la nostra permanenza a Tallinn abbiamo avuto il piacere di effettuare il tour della città vecchia, in linqua italiana, accompagnati da Kristina. Abbiamo potuto apprezzare la sua competenza e la passione verso il proprio Paese e la città di Tallinn, riuscendo anche a trasmtterla a noi. Preziosi i suoi consigli su lughi e locali da visitare, che ci hanno condotto in una città forse meno turistica, ma comunque affascinante. Grazie Kristina.
Die beautiful bike Tour hat uns und den Kindern super gefallen. Danke an Halja für die gute Führung. Sehr empfehlenswert.
A really great tour, all the things you don't see in the Old Town, an excellent guide, and the name "funky tour" sums it up perfectly!
Friendly tourguide who explained everything what we wanted to know!
Despite the fact that it rained, rained, rained our tour guide, Ana V. made experiencing Tallinn a fantastic experience. She is witty, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable. I loved hearing her quirky facts and real opinons and not being fed the tourist line of information. We learned so much about the history of Tallinn & Estonia. We came on a cruise ship and chose not to take the cruise tours because I know they did not experience Tallinn as my group did. Thanks Ana. You made the day wonderful and fun. Thanks for the tip on Tallinn Vana; its sinfully delicious. I highly recommend taking the Old Town walking tour ( July 2012)
Hello, Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time when we visited Tallinn. We took the Old Town Walking Tour and enjoyed it very much. Our tour guide Ann Vaida was well informed and had lots of good information to give us about the old city and present day Tallinn and Estonia. She was friendlly , outgoing and well informed. Our tour was a leisure one and we visited and saw all that we had planned to see and more in the short time we had in port. We really enjoyed ourselve touring and chatting with Ann. We will highly recommend this tour company to others. Thanks for making our time in Tallinn special. Edwin and Marilyn Udoji. July 10, 2012
Ghost tour july 2012 I've jjust been on a wonderful Ghost tour with Stacy as a guide. You've made my day and it was a surprising and very nice ending of the tour.:-) I really enjoyed both the trip and the chat.
We just returned from a trip to Tallinn. Ann gave our group a wonderful, memorable walking tour. Even though it was a rainy day, we hardly noticed, because of Ann's enthusiasm and energy!
Just back from a trip to Tallinn. One of the most interesting cities we have visited. Our walking tour was just great. We had a terrific guide-Margus- he was full of life & fun. Not your usual serious guide. Well done. We will be bac
This stuff you can't read about in any guidebook. Tanks to Epp. Helle, Helsingør, Denmark
Ann was an excellent guide, amusing, knowledgable and vivacious. I thoroughly recommend this free tour of the town run by local uni students!
An excellent and informative 2 hour stroll around the old town with our guide Anne whose ability to be humourous in a foreign language was outstanding - and all at no charge too!!
Great trip with our Guide Epp who took us on an interesting trip around Tallinn. We learned many things about the society, the history and with a personal point of wiew. It was a Nice Way of discovered a different part of the town.
I went on the " funky bike Tour" with a guide called Epp. It truely was a nice ride around Tallinn, where we visited places that we wouldn't have discovered our selves. If you're going to Tallinn i would recommend you to try this. And ask for the guide "Epp" cause she was a wonderful guide. :)
My husband and I along with our 12 year old son took the Funky Bike Tour in Tallin with Celia as our guide. This was easily the most memorable event of our northern Europe/Russian holdiday. Celia was extremely knowledgable and very proud of her country's history and we learned a lot. Very interesting to get an Estonian view of the Soviet era. While we enjoyed the Old Towne, this was a great chance to travel an unbeaten path. We had hoped to find some other travelers on the tour and were lucky to find two great young men, Jack from Australia and Jun from Singapore. What a great opportunity for our son to Get a view of young people touring the world. Cannot say enough good things about our bike trip. Even the rainy weather did not put a damper on the day. Great tour, great people and a fantastic country. Can't wait to find an excuse to return. Be sure to make this tour a part of your visit!
It was an awesome trip to the Lahemaa national park, even through an early snow storm. The place is amazing in its own right in winter. Thanks to our guide who braved the elements and hiked us across the frozen bog. :-)
When we first saw advertising posters of tours offered to Lahemaa national park, we didn't even think about doing one. After a few days we had to admit that it is quite difficult, if not impossible, to get to Lahemaa national park without a private vehicle. So we decided to do this trip. Mart was our guide and showed up in a very good mood in the morning to pick us up. He was very friendly the whole day, brought us to beautiful places and told us a lot about Estonia. We felt like having a local friend showing us the best places of Lahemaa. Without him we could never have found all the places. One of the highlights was the Kasmu Maritime Museum, run by an Estonian family who served us an amazing lunch and guided us through the museum. Also scenic walks and spectacular nature views we had - all that accompanied in a group of 4 persons, very flexible and individual. PERFECT!! Bottom line: DO IT! Thank you Mart for this amazing trip!!
I did a walking and a bike tour through Tallinn and I really loved it. The guides had so many stories to tell. Thank you a lot.
Sorry its taken so long to write the review but things got back to normal very soon after we got back to England (Rush Rush) . This was our first visit to Estonia and to the wonderful capital ciy of Tallin. My wife(Rosie)and myself (Rob) were lucky enough to have what we considered to be a private tour as we were the only two people taking part with our very knowledgable tour guide (Kalev). who spoke in very good English, Our tour was on a cold cloudy day on November12th 2011 just after the football match against Ireland(sorry Kalev)and were taken by car for the full 7 hours around the Western Coast and Paldiski. Our guide kept us very well informed of the history and pointed out spots you would not normally see on any other tour.I think he was quite embarassed when we got to the lagoon/prison only to find the gates were shut and locked the only disapointment to a fantastic well planned tour. We will both recomend the tour to friends who might be going to Tallin in the future. Wondered if you still had the photographs you took of us to send on e-mail to show our friends of our day out. We gave you e-mail address on the day.. Many thanks again keep up the good work Rob& Rosie Hertfordshiere England
Ann was a very nice tourguide with a good vibe that provided us with the information you need to have an enjoyable stay in tallinn! She did not only talk but also actively deal with us when we had questions or remarks. Thanks a lot for this!
This was my 8th visit to Tallinn and although I don’t usually go on organised trips we came across Tallinn Traveller Info by chance and signed up for the Paldiski tour. What a great day we had and our tour guide Kalev, I have to say, went the extra mile to make our experience a more personal and memorable one. I’m planning my next visit Tallinn in the spring of 2012 and hope to go on the Lahemaa National Park trip.
This was a great tour and Kalev, our tour guide was a hero. He answered any questions we had, and was very friendly. He really cared about our experience and did everything in his power to make it happen. He also took photos of the whole tour and e-mailed them to us afterwards at no extra charge. I don't usually leave reviews, but I couldn't help but share my great experience on this tour with this company. We went on the western coast and paldiski tour.
We made an amazing daytrip to the Western coast. Kalev, our guide (and owner of the company), drove us around the whole day. He was willing to answer all our (stupid) questions and told us everything we wanted to know about Estonia en the sights we were visiting. Kalev was a really fun guy to go with and he made our daytrip a very relaxing day out!
Great to see parts of Tallinn the normal tourist would not see! Thanks Mart for the bar stop!
It's my first and only day in Estonia and thanks to Anne it won't be my last . There is a lot to see and Anne made it really great.
Wow, Awesome city, excellent guide who didn't care about time or anything, other than ensuring we had a great time. Thanks - I will return with wife and do this "beautiful" tour again.
Ann is the best tour guide in the world and a talented action photo jumper! :-) We enjoyed the tour very much and encourage everybody to do the tour as well! Thanks Ann and the team.
Fantastic tour - from the friendly and helpful service in the office to our guide, Mart., and all that we saw. The small group, flexibility in the itinerary, the excellent driving and great knowledge of our guide, - one of the best tours I've taken anywhere, and such good value.
Best trip, best guide, wonderful scenery and money well spent on this trip. Will definitely do another trip with you when next in this part of the world. Many thanks Kiwi Heidi
Thanks, Mart for such an excellent time! The Salmon was amazing! haha If you ever come to Liverpool I will give you a tour.
Even after a few days in the city, the walking tour just made the city even better, aware of the hidden gems... Great work!!!
Lahemaa National Park day tour - wow best tour ever and I have done many all over the world - the trip was a day I will never forget from the wonderful company to the amaing sites things I will truly never forget it was not just a trip it made memories - priceless, thank you, IF YOU HAVE A CHANCE, DO THE TRIP
I did the Beautiful Bike Tour. Good bikes, Amazing City, Great Tour Guide. Mart was the man!
Hello, I would like to thank the Tent People for all their hints and tips. I highly recommend stopping by at the tent to pick up and ask for any useful information. My wife and I went for a Beautiful Bike Tour, it was nice to go a little off the beaten path and return back to the interesting sites along the way. Their job however is made easier because Tallinn is up to the word, really BEAUTIFUL. WE hope to make it back some day, and definitly will stop by at the tent. Keep up the good work. Take care
Thanks to Kalev for a fantastic day in Laheema Nationalpark! I had a brilliant day there!
Just got back home after a FANTASTIC day in Lahemaa National Park with Kalev. Was just a brilliant day, and despite the rain our spirits were high. Saw so many places and things, but without ever feeling rushed...and was great to see what else Estonia had to offer outside Tallinn!. Really an absolutely super duper, well-organised but relaxed trip which you MUST go on if you are in Estonia! THANKS!!
The guide was informative and cheerful and the route was largely away from busy roads.
Well worth the money and such a different tour than the normal type! When Mathias spoke about the history of Estonia with such emotion you could actually get a creepy feeling that you were there, back then! We also visited the Sea Museum in Kasmu (the Captain's village) and the guide in the Museum also spoke about his country with such emotion. One word of advice and it is not a critisicm, that the guide when driving the bus when speaking, could use a microphone as it is very hard for the people at the back of the bus to hear what is being said. Rating: 10 out of 10
Went on both bike tours back to back and was well worth it with minimal overlap :D
We had a great time on our Pubcrawl this summer. It was the perfect way to meet new people, see the city, and have fun! Our tour guide Mart was awesome and we would definitely recommend the tour and hope to do it again next summer.
Our guide Mathias was really friendly and instructive and showed us wonderful sights all over the park. This tour is the best way to see lots of amazing landscapes and it's totally recommended for everyone! Thanks
Just returned from a baltic cruise and one of the highlights was definitely the day we spent in Tallinn, much of that due to our excellent tour guide Anne who walked us around the wonderful city streets. The tour isn't one of the "routine" tours run by the main operators rather a fun, well informed wander around with a local, taking in areas that the larger tour groups miss. Definitely gets our recommendation!!
Harry made our bike tour a fantastic experience. A great way to discover different parts of the city. To top it all we had great weather (did you guys organise that too for us) You all do a fantastic job at the info tent too and I am so glad we found you and booked the trip.
This was such a great tour, definitely value for money. We were a group of six of ages ranging from 30s to 60s and all thoroughly enjoyed visiting Lahemaa National Park with our guide, Kalev. He was so friendly and didn't mind our constant questions about life in Estonia etc and also did a detour on the way as we wanted to see Jagala waterfall. Brilliant day.
Had a super fun time on the pub crawl.We've not laughed that much in a long time. Estonians have a great sense of humour, especially Mart. We will be returning in December.
It was really great!!! Thank you very much to be such closer. Cheers
We just finished a 16 day trip that we're affectionately calling our "Medieval Tour" because we visited 11 European cities that had Old City Centers dating back to the 13th Century. Tallin was our last city tour (a total of 9 across 16 days) and Ann did an outstanding job. She kept us engaged, paced the tour so that my 77 & 78 y/o parents could keep up, and shared some fascinating (and mostly unpublished) pieces of information on her city. Highly recommend her and the Old Town walking tour group!
Das war eine tolle Tour in eine beeindruckende Natur - informativ, entspannend und locker. Unser Reiseleiter begleitete unsere kleine Gruppe aus Japanern, Amerikanern, Niederländern und Deutschen kompetent und unaufgeregt - ein wirklich sehr schöner Tag, vielen Dank!
Fantastic tour. Enjoyed every moment. Kalev was great, really friendly and showed us so many fantastic places round the Lahemaa National Park in a day. One of the best tours I've done. The best way to see places outside the city if you can. Highly recommended and well worth every euro!!!
Our trip with Kalev to the Lahemaa National Park was a very good organized, fine travel - Kalev did a great job, and we spent a wounderful day in Estonian nature...
The Lahemaa-Tour with Kalev we did on Tuesday, 2 August 2011 was one of the best things that happened to us when we travel - and we travel a lot... He showed us sooo many awesome sites and gave us so much interesting information on Estonia, Tallinn, Lahemaa and the Estonians in general. 10 hours or more flew away within seconds... Take your swimming togs with you, probably you can make use of it at the end of the day...;-) Thanks to Kalev and the whole team of Travellers for giving us such a good time!
We came to Tallinn on a weekend trip from Helsinki, and did both the Lahemaa and Funky Bike Tours. The Tallinn Traveller team looked after us really well the whole time - we couldn't have planned a better time ourselves. Expect to laugh, learn and be pushed out of your everyday travel comfort zone.
Ulena was really interesting and fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested to know Tallinn. Thank you!
We scheduled a combination walking and bike tour ahead of our cruise ship stop on July 3, 2011. We met up with Ann at the tent. Ann was a fantastic tour guide. Our group included our two kids (ages 11 and 14) and our sister and brother-in-law. There happened to be a music / singing festival also going on in Tallin that day. Ann was fun, enthusiastic, and very, very knowledgable. We went straight into the bike ride after the walking tour and I can tell you Ann is a fearless bicyclist. We went all over Tallin and had a great day. After the tour Ann came along with us to a restuarant she suggested called Grandmas. The lunch was very good and we would never have found it if Ann did not come along.
Easily one of the best tours I've been on. Spent a full day with Kalev roaming the Lahemaa National Park and seeing a side to Estonia that you just don't get in the city. Our guide was friendly, relaxed and always up for a chat. Almost felt like we were spending the day with a good friend. If you're in Estonia for a few days, don't leave without taking this tour.
The walking tour with Heli on 7/18/11 was excellent!
The group was small, and I got to see things I would have never discovered otherwise. All of this along with an anecdotal history of cowboy capitalism. Everyone at Tallinn Traveller made my trip to Estonia one I will never forget, I cannot recommend them enough!
The pubcrawl was great, we had a good time, met new people, and found out a lot about Tallinn´s nightlife, we´ll be back in Tallinn, and we will be sure to hit the pubcrawl again!
Harry is a legend of a tour guide, and Hayley was brilliant on the walking tour. Looking forward to seeing you guys again in future.
Thank you for arranging for Ann to take us on the Russian walk. She was so informative, enthusiastic, and energetic. It was great fun to have an eighteen year old guide who was willing to take two seniors who needed to sit down to a great and funky place for something to drink.
Ülane provided an entertaining and educational tour of Tallinn during our recent visit. Historical facts mixed with local color provided a wonderfully narrated walking tour of a beautiful city. The time in Tallinn was one of the best of our Baltic vacation and a tour that was an excellent experience.
Elaine, I want to thank you for the tour of Tallinn towards the end of May. Your English was amazing as was your information. Your bubbly, energetic personally made the tour a wonderful adventure and experience. I wish you all the best in the future. You are wonderful, bright young lady with a lot of promise. Thanks again!
Thank you so much Elaine, I loved your tour (May 2011). You shared many fun facts, beautiful sites & folklore. Great introduction to Tallinn, must definitely return.
My friends and I only had one day to spend in Talinn and yet we saw so much thanks to the Funky Bike Tour! What a great way to get to know the city and its history away from the usual tourist stuff! Been on quite a few tours during the last couple of days; this one was by far the best. Harry, you rock!
The Beautiful Bike Tour was the highlight of my stay in Tallinn! The guide was very friendly and I enjoyed it so much I went out on the Funky Bike Tour the next day!! If you do one thing while in Tallinn, go on these bike tours!!!
My father gave me this tour for my birthday!!! Harry is a really nice guide with a personal touch and you get to see a lot of the city that you wouldn’t get to see otherwise. I recommend this tour to anyone going to Tallinn.
We had an awesome time in Tallinn thanks to your tour and lovely hospitality! It was a memorable trip with all your help. The pub crawl was definitely the best part with drinks we could not pronounce in places only locals go to! Great initiative all around, would do it all again in a heart beat! Cheers!
A wee poem about the Tallinn tent in Scots/Glaswegian: ——- The Tallinn Tent’s a Stoater, Full-a things tae dae, Once yiv seen Tallinn’s sights, You’ll shuirly want tae stay ——- The Pub crawl’s trully gallus, The bars are full beer, If ahd got mair money, Ahd want tae stay a year ——- The lassies are aw bonnie, They’ll try tae nip a kiss, The Tallinn Tent Pub Crawl, Isnie one tae miss!
Have been to the Pub Crawl at least five times – the best and easiest way to meet new and cool people from all over the world.
Just to say what great tours you run, the bike ride and then a ‘private’ tour with some friends was such great fun and really helped us to understand something of Tallinn and its people.
This may have been the best travel dollars I have ever spent. Heli was superb and made wonderful Tallinn even better with her knowledge, fun personality, obscure facts and entertaining ways.
No matter which of the them takes the Pubcrawl tour you will have a great time meeting other travellers and local Estonians. You even get to sample a truly horrid but must-try Jellyfish shot and if you’re especially lucky, Tallinn’s very own Paris Hilton look-alike may join the group.
This was very refreshing as a contrast to the official tour. This is needed in more cities around the world. Great initiative. Thanks.
We had a great time on your tour. It’s the first time my kids have not been bored. A good mix of history and general stories.
We have been on the walking tour, on the funky bike tour and thoroughly enjoyed them both. We have learned much about Tallinn and Estonia’s rich history from great, interesting and very proud young ambassadors.
Great tour to the parts of Tallinn that the tourists don’t see.
I’m a 55 year old American. I love those kids. They are a wonderful representation of Tallinn. The walking tour was one of the best I’ve been on and I have toured 5 continents. And I look forward to them next year.
Refreshingly honest and informative, youthful alternative to the conventional official city story.
Fantastic service. The walking tour was one of the best I have been on. And after 40 countries I have been on a few.
All our tour guides are young educated locals so the tours feel more like discovering with a local friend.
With us you'll explore the highlights, but also experience authentic less-discovered destinations.
We want everyone to get personal attention from the guide so we aim to keep our groups rather small.
