"Best Tour Ever"
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!!!!
"The best of Tallinn in 5 hrs"
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.
"Could have been better"
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).
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.
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.
"History and Humour"
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.
"Great for teens!"
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.
"Book your cruise shore tour with them"
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.
"Tour Guide Martin is fabulous"
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.
"A wonderful 5 hour car and walking tour"
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.
"Very professional tour company with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff."
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.
"Great 5 hour drive and walk tour"
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.
"An awesome day in Tallinn"
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!
"The tour practically flew by"
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.
"A highlight of our trip"
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.
"Will not hesitate to book again"
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.
