Thousands of Happy Customers
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!
"fun and fascinating!"
light hearted but exciting and interesting tour of the Old Town at night - and the various horrors that have befallen many an unlucky person over the centuries!
"Interesting tour, great guide"
Really interesting tour which covers lots of picturesque spots in the old town but most of all Ray was a great tour guide!
"Best tour ever"
Highly recommend this two hour walkabout in the old town of Tallinn. Our guide Mirjam, a professional guide with extremely intresting way of telling stories, taught me many new historical and other nice-to-know detals about Tallinn. We could have listened to her stories all night! This tour was the highlight of our two day stay in town.
"Great insightful walk"
Was lucky enough to catch this tour while we were in Tallinn. Our guide Ray was extremely knowledgable and fun; the walk lasted just under two hours taking in most of the old town as the sun set adding to the eerie feel of the tour. Highly recommended if you happen to be visiting Tallinn and are interested in an alternative guided tour.
"A fascinating tour of the darker history of Tallinn"
The stories give an interesting look into Estonian culture. The stories are a mix of ghost stories and darker historical anecdotes but regardless of whether they were fact or fiction, I learned more about how Estonians view themselves and their city.
"Fun filled 2 hr intriguing walk"
Young energetic guide, totally into wanting everyone to have a great time. We had a fascinating 2 hour walk around the city listening to intriguing tales of Tallinn
"A great mix of ghosts, legends and history"
We so enjoyed our tour, our guide Christian was both informative and amusing. He bought Tallinn's past to life - very much recommended.
"Good way to learn Talinn history with a chill."
The guide is very knowledgeable with a full of scary and gory story of what medival people used to do and how they lived. He was funny and kept us entertained with various ghost stories and Tallinn myth.
"Ghost tour is ok but no highlight "
The tour was ok, length was with 90 minutes ok, not too long. The tour guide was a bit nervous, you could tell that a lot from his body language. He was friendly, the stories were nice but often we'd rather had stories being a bit more realistic. The tour would be better in the dark. Maybe shift the times in summer to later hours. There was no hot chocolate at the end :(
"Favorite tour on my vacation!"
To start off with, I am a junkie when it comes to fables and legends and myths. This tour provided all of that and more and i would recommend this tour to anyone who is fortunate enough to visit Tallinn. The guide was informative and funny with numerous stories to share.
"Great ghost walking tour"
The tour was great and interesting with the different stories about scary, bloody and spooky legends of Tallinn. Although it was his first tour, our guide was really fantastic. My teen daughters really loved him (sorry I forget his name, but I really want to give him highest mark). He had excellent knowledge about Estonian history too. Would Highly recommend.
Had a wonderful evening with Liine who really bought the town to life. Such a brilliant tour with best hot chocolate at the end. Highly recommend!!
"Great ghost walking tour"
Wind and cold winter weather did not bother at all as we listened fascinating stories of Katleen (hope I got the name correct) at our private walking tour in the old town of Tallin. Great combination of ghosts, legends, history and life of today - just as we wished. And in the end of the tour nice cup of warm tea with beautiful view of the city, thank you!
"Excellent Tour by Siim "
Siim was eloquent, humorous and captivating....wealth of a time. I had a whale of time.Kudos to him !
"perfect introduction to tallinn and the estonians"
Heli is a hell of a tour guide. absolutly enthusiastic in describing her beloved city and estonians. She is equally funny and knowledged! I recomment this tour to everyone who thinks about viditing tallinn.
"A spooky history lesson in Tallinn"
The tour was great, informative, interesting, and a perfect way to hear about all the spooky, gruesome and fascinating legends of Tallinn and it’s turbulent history. Our guide was fantastic, really fun and made for a very entertaining night, with excellent ‘home-grown’ knowledge of the area. Would Highly recommend.
"Wonderful Night Walk through Tallinn"
This was a perfect walk through the night and our guide Liine was so ambitious. She told us stories about Tallinn we had never heard before. I can say this was such a good idea to book this tour.
"An absolute must!!"
Book this tour! You will not regret a second of it. We even did the tour in freezing cold weather and enjoyed it immensely! You learn so much about the history of Tallinn, and who doesn’t enjoy a good ghost story. Worth every penny and then some!
"Ghost tour Tallinn"
After a similar tour in Edinburgh we had high hopes for this one in Tallinn. The free walking tour was also a hard act to follow but unfortunately we were very disappointed. We did not find the content very stimulating and its delivery was lacking. We were expecting a 2 hour tour so thought the 1 hour 10 minute one we actually had for 15 euros each was expensive. Sorry, but wouldn't recommend.
"Best way to learn about Tallinn"
This was one of the top highlights of my trip to Tallinn. Although it was cold and dark, it really added to the ghost tour. It's such a great way to learn more about the history of the place. Liine was our guide and she was so great - entertaining, easy to understand, really engaging and passionate. Thank you!
"Would definitely recommend"
Excellent tour, would definitely recommend it! We learned a lot, our guide Martin is very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you!
"Learned about the city and its history in a very fascinating way"
We have just had the "Ghost Tour" of the city of Tallinn together with the guide Helen. We enjoyed it very much, Helen managed to tell us a lot of the city and its history in a very fascinating way. We discovered hidden spots, heard scary stories - will never want to walk around the old town in the middle of the night! - we learnt so much about Tallinn, Estonians and their culture. It was indeed a great tour and Helen was super kind and professional!
"A fantastic and thrilling ghost tour"
Thank you Liine for a fantastic and thrilling ghost tour, our students loved it!!!
"One of the most marvellous things to do in Tallinn"
The Tallinn Ghost Tour is one of the most marvellous things to do in Tallinn! Our tour guide Liine was a fantastic storyteller and did a great job! It was great fun and very interesting to meet all the real ghosts of Tallinn old town (special regards to the ghost in the Swedish embassy :) )
"One of the best tours I had"
Henri made the tour interesting and fun. It was also a good way to see various parts of the Old Town along with the ghost stories that happened in it. Very nice.
"Definitely a fun tour"
The tour was very informative. It was interesting and fun. Our guide, Henri, was friendly and is always able to answer all our questions regarding the tour. He speaks English (and also Japanese) fluently so we could easily understand when he was conducting the tour. Very highly recommended.
The Swiss Junior Nationalteams in Curling made a great tour with guide Liine. Just brilliant!!! Scary stories, interesting facts, scintillating wit, coherent language - and of course the hot chocolate afterwards. Thank you!
"Totally worth the cold weather"
We just finished the tour with our guide liine. Although it was snowing we did not mind the cold weather, the stories made it all worth it. And of course the hot chocolate afterwards. Best thing to do to get to know the city in a short time. Greetings!
"Learned about places we had missed during our stay"
Tallinn was a great place with friendly people and Liina was no exception. The walk revealed places we had missed during our stay, both her energetic and knowledgeable way of explaining tales and legends was exceptional. recommend this to anyone but be aware there are plenty of steps and cobbles.
"Well worth the 13 euros"
We went on the ghost tour in Tallinn in August 2014. Liina was an amazing tour gide, she's a very good story teller!! Also she has a nice sense of humor. We've already been two days in Tallinn, but during the tour we saw new interesting places. Afterwards we went together to Pierres Cholocats for a nice cup of hot chocolat! Price, including the drink, was 13 euro and well worth it!
"Awesome ghost tour, despite the lack of darkness"
A little minus was the fact that during summertime it's not really dark by 8pm. Maybe it could be a little bit later? But the lack of darkness did in no way ruin the tour atmosphere thanks to the great storytelling! The stories were interesting and spooky at the same time and found out lots of interesting things about Tallinn Old town. Totally worth the 13€, plus the hot chocolate at the end of the tour was amazing. Can totally recommend the tour!
"An amazing tour of the Tallinn ghost stories"
Well done Tallinn Traveller Tours and thanks to our wonderful guide Heli, one of the best tour guides you could ever hope for. A wonderfully bubbly and energetic young lady with a real talent and passion for storytelling. Superb English too. Over the 2 hours she told lots of great ghost tales with an wicked sense of humour and captivated her audience totally. Among these ghostly tales she added a few other historic details and quirky, funny anecdotes. You cover quite a distance walking around the beautiful streets of the old town but you get a real great feel for the town and some wonderful views from the viewing platforms at the top of the town. It can be a bit steep uphill but everyone should be able to manage and we'll worth the views. Heli organised a nice drink for everyone at a really cosy cafe at the end of the tour which is a really nice way to finish off a great tour. So where you're next in Tallinn check out this Ghost tour and if all their tour guides are as good as Heli you'll have a great evening. 10/10 to Tallinn Traveller Tours, great value at 13€, well done and thank you!
"I enjoyed the evening thoroughly. "
I had the great pleasure of participating in the "Tallinn Ghost Tour" guided by the hilarious Heli Jurisson on 14 August. With her tremendous enthusiasm and razor-sharp wit, she made the undead come alive with her magnificent storytelling.
Ghost tour july 2012 I've jjust been on a wonderful Ghost tour with Stacy as a guide. You've made my day and it was a surprising and very nice ending of the tour.:-) I really enjoyed both the trip and the chat.
