"Great trip to interesting historian places!"
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!
"Very efficient use of time"
The trip gave an overview of Estonian landscape and history, mainly from the Soviet domination times
"Very dedicated tourguide"
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!
"An excellent tour! "
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!
"From Estonian coast to a Russian history."
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).
"Cool Coastal Cliffs Tour with Laura T"
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!
"Interesting, informative, and fun excursion."
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.
"Beautiful countryside "
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.
"Best Day in the Baltics"
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 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.
"A look into the estonian soul"
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
"Coastal Cliffs tour - great for teens!"
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.
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.
"Hit all the right spots"
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
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!
"Perfect in Paldiski "
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.
An excellent excursion with lots of interesting and diverse locations. Andres was a great guide.
"Fun, interesting and relaxing day"
Thank you so much Kätlin for making our day! Your kind, intelligent and relaxed way really impressed us :-)
"A glimpse of wider Estonia"
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.
"Great diversity and inside into Estonian life"
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!
"Great day out "
Lovely day trip to get out of the city and see more of Estonia. Great guide who was super friendly and very informative.
"Charming tour to places you won't find at your own"
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.
"Costal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski"
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.
"Highly insightful and fun!"
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 :)
"Cold but enjoyable"
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.
"Intriguing alternative day trip from Tallinn"
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.
"Off beaten tour out from Tallinn"
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.
"One of the highlights of Estonia!"
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.
"Tour to Paldiski"
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 :)
"Coastal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski"
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.
"Fantastic Paldiski tour"
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.
"Olga's knowledge of the area was amazing and made the place come to life"
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!
"A wonderful way to spend a day here"
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.
"Just got back from an awesome day"
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.
"One of the most relaxing tours I've been on"
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!
"Highlight was the Murru prison quarry"
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!
"Really enjoyed the 7 hours"
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!
"Would travel with Triin again on our next trip to Tallinn"
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.
"The guides are all brilliant, so makes no difference which one you pick."
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.
"Recommended if you want to spend an interesting day in the outdoors"
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!
Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski - tänan Kätlin
"A great experience in Estonia which I'll never forget"
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!
"Most amazing and awesome of our stay"
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
"Thanks for a spectacular day!"
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!
"A Fantastic day out"
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
"Had a great time, highly recommended"
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!
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.
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!
"A nice day"
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 ;)
Coastal Cliffs & Soviet Paldiski Tour was spectacular, so glad I went! Highly recommended. Our guide Iida-Leena was fantastic.
"A great day out, many surprises"
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.
"You won't be disappointed"
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.
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.
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.
"A must for every visitor."
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.
"Enjoyed every minute of the tour"
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.
"Far beyond the tourist standard"
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
"Keep up the good work"
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
"A great day, personal and memorable experience"
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.
"A great tour"
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.
"A very relaxing day out"
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!
