Digital Nomads and Start Up Culture
One of the purposes of my trip was to understand and get to know more about this "digital Nomads Hub" which is called Tallinn. And I was not disappointed. George was the perfect guide to tell about its startup scene since he is involved on every day basis on its development, I mean, as a UX/Service Designer, he knew about the most representative start ups, its story of success, mixed with local story about specific politics that allowed the upbringing of digital innovations in Tallinn.
He explained details about the e-residency program, how nearby countries started to look at Tallinn, or the flux of highly skilled professionals that landed in the city to make a living by freelancing, pitching projects or enjoying their stay at the many co-work places.
Stories of success and failure, of design and innovation, politics and social/economical change.
If you want to know the very same core of this wonderful city, besides exploring its beautiful sight seeings, book this tour. I recommend it strongly.

:D!!!!!
エストニアの最新スタートアップ事情を知る素晴らしいツアー
タリンで生活しスタートアップに詳しい George さんが丁寧に案内してくれました。
エストニアの国の成り立ちから、IT 産業がどのように成長してきているか、どんなスタートアップがあるのか、などを知ることができました。
これらは日本でもネット上から多くの情報が得られるようになってきましたが、直接関係者から話を聞いて、どのような場所でプロダクトを開発しているのか生で見るという体験を通して、編集されていない一次情報にアクセスできるのは魅力的でした。
IT 関連の仕事をされている方以外にもオススメできます。若くて勢いを感じるタリンのスタートアップ事情は、多くの人にとって新鮮で楽しめるはずです。
Friendly, kindness, and deeply understanding explanation
The staff was well-known about not only his Estonian IT company, but also European IT business.
I got information about my interest very much, what technological trying in Estonia is currently.
He also introduced Riga in Latvia's start up information that is my next destination. That was so interesting time.
very good.
When you visited Tallinn, and only see the Old Town, New Town and as such in regular guidebooks, you have seen only the half aspect of the city, or maybe you missed 80% of it. What you should really see is its startup scene, which has been the most leading tech community in the world. George, the tour guide, was very informative and helpful, that made my experience profound. Highly recommended!
George was very kind.
We only understood Japanese, did a wonderful attendance. The possibility of Estonia's startup is wonderful.
Amazing experience
George is very nice and known in the start-upper's community, he adapted our tour to my specific needs :)
Thanks again,
Interesting trip
George is a nice guide. He is kind and friendly. He handled the tour well though the booking was at short notice.
The tour was very good. I got a variety of information about Estonia’s innovative scenes and felt the actual atmosphere.
Exiciting tour
Jana and George have networks to startups. We had a tour to TransferWise. People at TransferWise are so kind and the tour was so exciting. Thank you!
Incredible insight into the startup environment
George has a great network and took me completely by surprise, offering one of the best tours I have ever experienced.
I highly recommend this tour, regardless of your interest for ''startups''.
This scene is what will define Estonia in years to come.
I also recommend doing this tour AS SOON AS POSSIBLE because George will help you find out about what is going on in town during the remainder of your stay.
Informative and fascinating discussion about start-up activity in Tallinn as well as innovation processes in general.
Impressive Tour!
I strongly recommend this tour if you want to interview or chat with StartUP members.
George did the very impressive introduction for us to understand the background, and he brought us the fantastic opportunity to meet up the team members who works in startup company.
Inspirational and informational
George was a great tour guide: answered my questions and showed me around. He gave me some contact information for himself and some partners.
