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.

Great tour
We did the 3 hrs tour with Marie in Tallinn. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She gave us a lovely background of the city and showed us some interesting spots. She had many great stories to share and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. Would use like a local again.
Best idea for Tallinn
We had a short time in Tallinn off our cruise ship. Igor met us just outside the cruise gates, and we were off! He was super knowledgeable and we got to see and learn about the best sites in Tallinn Old Town and new without fumbling with a map and losing our way. I would highly recommend this tour!
Fabulous tour of Tallinn
Maria was waiting for us as we disembarked our ship, and spent the next 3 hours bringing Tallinn to life. We hit all the must see spots, while avoiding the crowds. Her knowledge of history, plus personal experience with the fall of the Soviet Union, made for a most engaging tour.
Wonderful walking tour of Tallin
We had a great day with our guide Julia. Our group of 4 were met just outside the port as promised. Julia gave us a comprehensive history of Tallin during our walk. For a small group, this walking tour is a great alternative to a Ship's Shore excursion.
Outstanding guide, beautiful city.
