Our guide, Katrin, was waiting for us a the meeting point which was an encouraging start. She was extremely friendly and her English was excellent as was her knowledge of the local history and culture. She put this across in such an interesting manner that no guide book could ever hope to convey. It was such a pleasure to hear about so many aspects of Estonia and Tallinn's history and sights that would have ordinarily just passed us by. I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough and wish Katrin all the best with her studies at Durham.

Excellent Guide and Tour
Wonderful guide that brought Tallinn alive. It was great to just do the 3 hours so we had the rest of the day on our own. She was super knowledgeable, and the political history was very interesting. Their fight for freedom touched our hearts. Especially those on a cruise--this is a great way to get more than the basics quickly and still have enough time to enjoy a great meal and shop.
Thanks Igor!
We had an informative three hours with Igor, our very knowledgeable guide with perfect English:) We only had a day in Tallinn so it was important for us to do a tour instead of just walking the street without directions. Thanks again Igor for sharing your city, its interesting history and anecdotes with us. Nathalie and Ufuk
A Must Do to see Tallinn
It was our first visit to Tallinn and Hellie was one of the best tour guides I have had across Europe. She was energetic and very knowledgeable in the history of Estonia. For our short stay in the city we saw and learned quite a bit in 3 hours.
Thank you for a wonderful tour

Great Walking Tour of Tallinn
We went on a wonderful walking tour of Tallinn with Julia, a very knowledgeable young architect. She told us so many interesting things about the city, its history and its present. We ended at the new market area where we ate lunch and sighed over the fabulous berries. A half a day well spent!

Fantastic tour and highly recommended!
Interesting sights and commentary
Had a great time with Catherine. Very knowledgeable. She went the extra mile to tell and show us what’s interesting.
Excellent
There is no better way to get from Riga to Vilnius. The sites along the way are worth far more than the cost of the transportation. Thanks for this great idea and for fulfilling it in a very professional manner.
