A very informative tour and tour guide ! Would certainly recommend if you want to discover Estonia’s history and interesting facts.
Fantastic value too !
Thank you
Tour plan was great. Not impressed with guide
The tour itself is well thought out.

It’s unfortunate that our guide/driver had started out the tour with air conditioning issues, which I corrected by demanding that he actually keep it on when we had 6 people in a small van and it’s 30 degrees outside.

The second issue that I found completley unacceptable was that our driver thought it would be ok to make a few phone calls while driving. Driving a manual transmission with one hand shifting and one hand keeping the phone at his ear isn’t the most comfortable feeling for a passenger when driving down a highway.
Best overall experience
We were short on time but still wanted to see more that just Tallinn. Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. She answered all our questions and gave us even more information about life in Estonia. She even found us a restaurant with the local specialties we had asked to try. Both kids and adults agree that our tour guide and the scenery on the Paldiski tour are why we fell in love with Estonia
Fantastic Day Tour
An absolutely fantastic explore of Paldiski
This trip took us to several unexpected and amazing places. Our guide was the best and it was great to be with him for the day.
Amazing experience
Thank you so much for the great experience. It was a great adventure .
If you take a tour with this company you will feel like traveling with friends.
A wonderful tour to understand the history of Estonia
A fun day outdoors
Two great guides with that typical Estonian sense oh humour. An extremely informative tour of beautiful Estonian landscapes and their history. The guides tried to cram as much information into the 8hour tour as possible. I learned a lot and visited totally outstanding sites. It was more than a year ago, and I still remember every single place we visited!
We rate our tour as a 5+.
We enjoyed a tour to Coastal Cliffs & Paldiski with Liine. It was grasping, we had a nice company with our tourmates, and our guide was very lively and smart. It seems that Liine knows everything about history and Estonia!
We recommend this tour for anyone who wants to spend an interesting day in the out-of-doors!
I did the Paldiski trip as you weren't offering the Haapsalu tour. I rated it 5 star as Olga was very informative but also friendly and funny. The van was comfortable and it was a good was to see some Estonian countryside. A lovely warm and chilled out day. I can send you some photos also..
perfect day with Kätlin!!
She showed us all the interesting sights and told us a lot about Estonia, the culture and the political situation.
Very competent and clever and nice girl.
The weather was great too!! We took lots of great pictures!!
Fabulous day tour!
Booking through Like a Local was easy and was happy with the confirmation of booking. We checked out the location for the departure (Tourist Information) the day before the tour and found this easily.
On the morning of the tour we waited with a few others outside, and the tour guides arrived and was very organised. Myself and Aaron my boyfriend were the only 2 booked on the Coastal Cliffs & Paldiski Tour so we had the tour guide Ann to ourselves and a private tour. It was a fantastic day, Ann was friendly, informative and interesting. She took us to all the places on the tour and could answer any questions we had. She made the tour fun and interesting. We loved the Rummu Prison and Quarry and the Abbey, but all the places we saw were great.
Stopping for a local lunch in the taverna was perfect and the food was delicious.
We would definitely recommend the tour to all and would book again through yourselves.
A big thank you to Ann for a fabulous day and tour.
The tour was great!
The tour was great, I will rate it for 5. That is largely thanks to the guide – Olga. She was very well prepared for the tour and very helpful during the tour. She was able to answer the most difficult questions of people from different countries. She was very enthusiastic and it made the tour very powerful. I'm traveling a lot, and I've never met such a wonderful guide.
Last month i had the chance to make 2 different tours with Tallinn Traveller, i made Lahemaa National Park with Iida-Leena and Coastal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski with Mart. Both tours were amazing. Iida and Mart were great, friendly, good communicators and they explained a lot about Estonia and the Estonians. On both tours, i had the chance to left the beautiful but tourist-crowded Tallinn for a couple of days and travel to Estonian countryside and somehow experience the Estonian way of life. Nature, waterfalls, Manor houses, beautiful landscapes, old Soviet airplanes, missile shelters, old submarine base and.... a swimming MOOSE! :D
Thank you Iida-Leena, Mart and Tallinn Traveler staff for giving me 2 memorable days in Estonia!
I felt in love with Estonia, it's a wonderful country and i'm sure i will be back one day! :)
Our company provides accounting services. I wanted to take my team out from everyday environment and offer them some extreme.

As we previously had used Traveller Tours then we decided to discover North-West Estonia with them.
The tour was very entertaining taking us to places which we had not heard before. Again we must praise our guide who made a lot of jokes and shared interesting facts.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Iida-Leena, who's smart, funny, and great company. I learned a lot about Estonia; saw some interesting sights; and even got to meet the cool, warm, friendly people of Traveller Tours the next day to shoot promotional video for the Narva & The Eastern Bloc tour (where I learned even more about Estonian history). Highly recommended, the tours are worth every euro; you won't regret it. I only wish I did the Tallinn-Riga sightseeing tour bus—next time!
We had a fantastic day trip with Mart as our guide. He was able to provide us with a plethora of knowledge on Estonian history and the changes throughout history the country has gone through as well as making extra stops at interesting former Soviet installations. The Coastal Cliffs were also amazing with the frozen water that had trickled through the limestone cliffs. Overall, we had a terrific day with an equally terrific guide. I could not recommend Tallin Traveller Day Tours more.
