Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor


The tour was great and our guide Helen was an absolute delight. Her stories and storytelling really brought the spooky history back to life. Thank you so much!

"Ghosts and Legends Not An Ordinary Tour"

Our guide, Ray, was excellent. On this tour, you will learn things you will not learn on a regular walking tour. You find out about the dark history of the buildings you have passed. These legends are based on history and told in a fun easy way to understand. This tour would be engaging for teenagers as well. Ray, who is an historian, was also able to answer various questions we had about Tallinn and Estonian history that were not related to ghosts and legends which was an added bonus.

"Interesting and Funny Tour"

The "Ghosts & Legends" tour was instructive and fun. It's also worth participating when it rains!

"Very nice walkthrough of Tallinn's more macabre history"

I enjoyed the tour very much! There were a lot of very interesting dark stories (some ghost stories, some based on actual history) about various places in the Old Town, and our guide was fun and enthusiastic throughout, throwing in many quirky details. Would definitely recommend! (Just as a note, I always love to see a guide in some sort of historical costume, but I totally get that that's often just not possible. Even so, maybe a suggestion for the future...)

"Fun and informative!"

We went on two tours with this company: a free historical walking tour and a paid ghost tour. The tour guides are very knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. Both tours were different and had almost no overlap, so it was nice to go on both to get different experiences and see more of the city.

"Fun way to spend an evening"

The tour was a fun way to learn new facts of the city, the buildings and the history of Tallinn. We really enjoyed! Our guide was marvelous, she could really make the history alive. The tour was little over 90 minutes, which was just perfect length for a chilly night. The walk is not too long and only a moderate amount of stairs. Would highly recommend!

Meeting Point
