"Haapsalu and West Coast Tour"
I took the Haapsalu and West Coast Tour a few days ago and have only words of gratitude toward this company and especially to Marju who was very friendly and professional. She took the time to show and explain us about anything from history to biology. She patiently answered all of our questions and took us to this great caffé in Haapsalu, so we could try the simple but tasteful Estonian country cusine. Totally recommendable if your interested in history, politics, architecture and bird-watching or simply walking along the seaside. Tänan, Marju!
"First-rate tour company!"
I don't recall how my daughter found Traveller Tours when we were planning a trip to Estonia; but I'm glad she did. By us, small-group tours with local guides win hands-down over both large, cookie-cutter "highlight" tours done in lockstep with others, and the DIY approach with its inevitable false starts, lost time, and missed possibilities. We did two TT tours while in Estonia: one to Viljandi and the university town of Tartu, the other to the resort area around Haapsalu. Our respective guides, Kert and Marju, were graduate students fluent in English with an excellent grasp of both Estonian and European history and a good handle on the particulars of each site we visited. On the Viljandi/Tartu trip, we three had Kert to ourselves. So it effectively was a private tour at a group-tour price. On the Haapsalu trip, we had a congenial group of eight plus Marju. In both cases, we had plenty of time to talk and ask questions along the way; and we learned a great deal. Should we have a second opportunity to visit Estonia, we would happily go on more Traveller Tours. Thanks, Kert and Marju and colleagues, for doing such a great job!
"We got the best of both"
It was pouring rain in the morning so I was kinda questioning my decision to take a trip to Haapsalu that day. But fortunately, we ended up having great weather and chased the sun! As we weren't able to see everything from our planned tour due to a drag race happening at the air base, our guide Geron took us to some cool places that you normally see on a different tour. You could say that we got the best of both! I'd recommend doing any of these tours if you want to see more of Estonia than just Tallinn. And if you get Geron as your guide: lucky you, enjoy his great sense of humor!
I went on the Haapsalu tour which was great because you see the things in Estonia you otherwise not would see. I actually use this review to give some ideas because you haven´t give this tour so much. The second visit is a old monastery which you also visit in the paldiski tour, maybe a visit to another place is better so you see completely different things. The other is I didn´t found the visit of the little harbor, for me it didn´t add something extra. Although these points I will recommend the tour because you see lots of things and the stories behind the sightseeings are interesting. The last point is that this tour is often cancelled maybe its an idea to do this tour on another day to see of there are more people who book this tour or to do the day on 2 days so people have more possibilities to do these tours, although I don´t know of you already looked to these options.
Kaido did a very good job with interesting information about the history of the people of Estonia. The girls in the information center were very friendly and helpful.
"I couldn't have asked for a better experience"
What an amazing company, with amazing tour guides! I was lucky enough to experience a personal tour, during the winter season with three guides, as they were creating a new tour to bring in for the summer season. Spent the day exploring several hidden spots of Estonia. Highlights included the Padise monastery, Haapsalu & Ungru Castle. Each guide was full of interesting information about each place we visited and definitely have a real love for Estonia. I couldn't have asked for a better experience as a lone traveller. Thanks guys!!
