"Totally enjoyed the tour with the local guide"
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!
"So beautiful, wish we got lost in the park"
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.
"Great day out!"
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.
"Stunning Tour with Amazing Guide"
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.
"Beautiful Winter Experience"
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!
"Just book it already, and get your walking shoes ready!"
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!
"Hiking in Snow"
Experience is good
"Wonderful, Informative, Fun!"
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.
"Really great day out"
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
"Lovely country, lovely guide"
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
"Tour très sympa et paysage fabuleux"
Petit groupe de 7 personnes très sympathiques. Guide très compétente et très agréable. Un tour dépaysant et intéressant à ne pas manquer.
"An excellent way to explore a little bit of Estonia"
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.
"Fascinating tour with a knowledgeable, friendly guide "
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!
"Unforgettable experience "
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.
"Not to be missed!"
Wonderful experience of the Estonian countryside and heritage with very joyful and knowledgeable guide (Jevgeni)!
"Terrific Tour at Lahemaa Park"
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.
"Great nature close to Tallinn!"
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.
"Lahemaa National Park - awesome!"
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.
"Informative and entertaining, despite the rain!"
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.
"Great day, great nature and great guides! "
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.
"Such a beauty of nature out there"
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!
"Thorough, informative and friendly"
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.
"Amazing tour for natural and country view."
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.
"Amazing tour for natural and country view."
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.
"Fun and informative "
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.
"Great day trip"
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!!!!
"A unique opportunity to get out of town"
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.
"Spend Your Most Interesting Day in Estonia on This Tour"
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.
"Great tour with great Guide"
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
"Amazing view with an amazing guide!"
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.
"Excellent tour organisé pour découvrir les environs de Tallinn sans trop d'organisation!"
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!
"Estonia on a platter! "
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!
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!
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!!
"Go beyond the city!"
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!
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!
"I'd totally recommend it!"
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 :)
"After this tour, Estonia will never be unknown to you anymore"
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.
"From Tallinn to Riga swinging between history and singing"
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!
"Great way to see a bog"
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.
"Great story tellers and good insight of the country and the people"
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.
"Thanks for wonderful day!"
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!
"Excellent tour to explore Estonia!"
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.
"Bog to the top"
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.
"Great tour to Laheema National Park"
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!
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
"Wonderful tour with a nice guide"
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.
"Great day tour to Laheema National Park"
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.
"Surviving the bog"
Over 9hrs of information, travelling, walking, exploring, lunch and enjoyment. Would recommend the tour.
"Estonian Swings, Bog Walks and Smoked Salmon"
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!
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
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!
"Wonderful sites "
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.
"A great day out, well worth the money"
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.
"Un superbe circuit"
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 !
"Great experience! "
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!
"Enjoyable day trip to Lahemaa "
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.
"Into the countryside for a day."
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.
"Wonderfull trip ! "
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 !
sehr gut geführte tour. sehr entspannte stimmung. die gruppengrösse passte. interessant und spannend auch, was unser guide uns alles erzählen konnte.
"Great place and guide"
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!
"Lahema National Park"
A very kind guide and a great experience
"a snapshot of estonia"
A good mix of locations outside Tallinn. Illustrated Estonia culture and life in a rural setting. Helpful and informative tour leaders.
"Good trip to Lahemaa National Park"
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.
"Super amazing out of the ordinary experience"
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.
"Outstanding Lahemaa National Park tour!"
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.
"Great way to spend the day outside of Tallinn"
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.
"Awesome tour and guide!"
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!
"A Visit to Rural Estonia"
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!
"Countryside trip full of actions"
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 best tour ever!!"
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!
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.
"A day in Lahema"
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
"A fine day out of a city"
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.
"Great escape from the city"
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.
"Knowledgeable and lovely guide - good attractions "
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.
"Wonderful overview of area"
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.
"Everything was perfect"
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
"Tallin Tours do care"
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.
"Great day out in Estonia!"
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!
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.
"What a wonderful day tour!"
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
"Just WOW !"
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.
"Perfect day for nature lovers "
Lovely day with witty and attentive Jaan as guide ☺ Thank you!
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!
"Definitely worth going!"
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. :)
"Informative and enjoyable tour"
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!
"Wonderful and relaxing day in Estonia countryside"
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.
"Great Day Trip to Lahemma"
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.
"get away from the crowds"
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.
Excellent way to spend the day to see the countryside near Tallen.
"Great way to see Estonia"
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.
"Best of the Bogs"
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.
A great tour through the National Park with many magic moments und a well informed and funny guide! I can recommend it to anyone!
"I need that swing!"
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!
"Beautiful trip to Lahemaa - must do from Tallinn"
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.
"really good day out"
had a amazing day, paddled in a bog, and had a go on an estonian swing!
"Interesting, informative, inclusive."
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!
"Beautiful and informative"
Excellent tour! The day was packed with things to see. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave lots of background information. Highly recommended!
"Nice and unusual place to see"
Never even knew what a bog was before this tour. Great idea, definitely worth.
"The side of Estonia I needed to see"
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!
"Sweet spot between Estonian history and nature"
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. :)
"Great Experience, Recommended"
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"
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
"Great location, great trip "
It was a fabulous experience, made memorable by our guide Kert
"Great value for money!"
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.
"Dreamday in the forest"
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 in Lahemaa National Park "
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 😊
"the countryside in snow"
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.
"A good tasting of Estonia"
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.
"Great winter experience at Lehemaa N.P."
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.
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!
"Fantastic day tour!"
Probably one of the best tour we made. The guide was really interesting and the place we visited absolutely fantastic. Thank you!!
"Best Time for Monday in Tallinn"
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.
"Nice day trip to get beyond the old town"
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).
"Excellent intro to Estonia"
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.
"Great fun .. even in the pitch black"
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.
"beautiful place, amazing tour guide"
Tour guide was amazing. The national park is truly beautiful. We went for a super lunch also.
"Estonia is more them Tallinn"
Grazie alla nostra guida abbiamo scoperto splendidi luoghi in cui altrimenti non saremmo mai stati. Ne vale la pena.
"Amazing day tour trip to Lahemaa Park"
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
"Our guide Kert was amazing"
It was the most exciting national park that I ever visited!
"It was cold but amazing"
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.
"Willing to accommodate and meet our needs"
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!
"The best day of our holiday"
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!
"Want to return to Estonia for more places at the countryside"
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)
"The mixture of nature and history was very good."
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.
"Experienced playing on the traditional Estonian swing and had so much fun"
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.
"If you go to Tallinn, this tour should be in your program."
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.
"We were a small group so we got to know each other quickly"
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!
"A fascinating trip round Lahemaa"
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.
"Totally worth it"
Amazing tour. Amazing guide. Totally worth it.
"Had a really great time on the tour"
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!
"So different to get out of the city and into nature"
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
"We could see how passionate and energetic Triin is"
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.
"I still remember the canned Estonian air "
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
"The whole tour felt like an exciting road trip with friends"
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, but it definitely exceeded all expectations"
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!
"Kert made us feel very comfortable"
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!
"Really enjoyed the tour."
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!
"If you like getting some physical activity while learning, take this tour"
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.
"Just outstanding service"
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
"Our highlight in our 3 days stay"
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.
"Lots of interesting stories from our tour"
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.
"A perfect day"
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!
"The best tour you can do in Tallinn"
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!
"It was a bit chilly, but we had such a great time"
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.
""No sex, no future, but excellent guides and a beautiful country""
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 provided a lot of knowledge and kept us well entertained"
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.
"One of the best trips I have ever been at"
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 :)
"Never once felt bored during the 9 hours"
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.
"A wonderful tour to Lahemaa national park"
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
"The tour was a lot of fun"
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.
"Amazing views and experiences throughout the natural reserve"
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 :-)
We did the Lahemaa national Park tour with Kris - fantastic.
"A fantastic day"
Martin gives us a fantastic day on 20 August in this free country. Thank you!
"Take the chance when it gets offered."
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.
"Glad we joined this tour"
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!
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 email@example.com. Many blessings to all of you!
"Highly recommend taking the tour"
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
"I enjoyed everything on the tour"
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!
"Very interesting daytrip "
We had Wednesday a very interesting daytrip to Lahemaa National Park. Nature, culture and history all together with the nice guide Geron.
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.
"Wonderful introduction to the natural and historical side of Estonia"
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!
"A fantastic day"
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.
"Glad we didn't rent a car fir tge tiyr"
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! :-)
"Recommend the tour to anyone"
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.
"An Estonian would say it was "pretty OK""
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!
"Highly recommend this tour to everyone."
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
"A fantastic day in Lahemaa national park"
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!
"We will come back one day!"
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!
"An aboslute "must-do" when you visit Estonia"
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.
"Worth every cent"
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
"A great selection of different activities"
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!
"Totally worth it"
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.
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!
"We would do it again!"
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!
"I'm sure i will be back one day"
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! :)
"Very enjoyable and informative 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.
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.
"Small group and a friendly guide"
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!
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.
"A nice break from the Old Town's touristy feel."
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.♥♥♥
"Had a blast"
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.
"Very much recommended"
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.
"Saw things we never would have seen on our own"
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.
"Well worth a days outing"
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! :)
"We had lots of fun despite the dreary weather"
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.
"Fantastic, anytime again"
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.
"Wonderful day trip to beautiful Lahemaa"
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! (:
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!
"A great day"
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.
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
"A must go trip!"
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
"Do it if you have the chance"
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.
"HIGHLY recommended, in every way"
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 !!
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!
"One of the highlights of our trip"
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.
"The highlight of our trip"
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.
"Great way to see a bit outside of 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!
This Lahemaa day trip was awsome.
"Refreshing change from the medieval tourist trap"
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.......
"Would recommend to anyone"
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!
"See Estonia off the beaten track"
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
"Nature is just amazing in this tiny country!"
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!
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!
"Worth every penny"
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!
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.
"This tour is absolutely essential."
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
"Definitely an awesome thing to do in Tallinn"
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!!
"Definitely a "must do" in Tallinn"
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.
"Will definitely do another trip here"
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
"Had a brilliant day!"
Thanks, Mart for such an excellent time! The Salmon was amazing! haha If you ever come to Liverpool I will give you a tour.
"You will never forget or regret the trip"
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
Thanks to Kalev for a fantastic day in Laheema Nationalpark! I had a brilliant day there!
"This trip is a must"
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!!
"Absolutely brilliant tour"
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
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
"Definitely value for money"
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.
It was really great!!! Thank you very much to be such closer. Cheers
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!
"Well worth every euro"
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!!!
"Very well organized"
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...
"Such a good time"
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!
"Couldn't have planned a better time ourselves"
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.
"Don't leave without taking this tour."
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.
