Thank you for a wonderful tour
Ease of Booking: 5, I found the walking tours on the Internet and felt the 3 hour tour would provide sufficient time to get an overview of the City so that we could revisit particular sites if we wished to
Ease of payment: 5 with a quick response to confirm my booking had been accepted and the meeting point.
Meeting up: 5. Katlin was at the Tourist Information when we arrived just before 10.30 am and made contact with us. She described how the tour would operate and we could vary it according to the weather, if we wished to stop for coffee etc.
Guide knowledge and information: 5. We would score it higher if that was possible. Katlin is a final year history student at university and her knowledge was excellent. She provided an unbiased historic overview which gave us insight into the turbulent and difficult periods of occupation of Estonia by the Russians and Germans and Swedes. Estonia is a 'young' country having become independent in 1991 but is steeped in history.
Sites visited: 5. We saw the Government and Parliament buildings, churches, embassies, with Katlin's descriptions of the cobbled streets as we circled the Old Town of Tallinn. There were stops for photographs, particularly from the high viewing points.
Timekeeping: the tour concluded on time and we had covered all the main sites, with an idea of those we wanted to go back to and spend more time.
Katlin's English was excellent and she responded to our numerous questions about Tallinn's history as well as current cultural changes as a relatively new country, it's ethos and aspirations.
