Me and my two friends enjoyed The ghosts and legends of Tallinn tour very much. It was a fun introduction to Tallinn's peculiar history and strange stories. Our guide Mirjam was excellent and she spoke clear English, she is a great storyteller. Personally I would have liked to hear a few more spooky ghost stories - like actual sightings, haunted houses etc. But this was entertaining combo as well. Would definitely recommend this tour for other travellers!

Loved this tour, loved our guide.
We joined the free tour at 12 noon and then, thank goodness(!) had the same lively, humorous and engaging guide for the haunted tour – much to the relief of my terrified teenage daughter!

We were kept captivated for the full two hours being led to numerous historical sites with stories of ill-fated deaths, ghosts and grisly tales that have been passed down into common folklore only adding to the chilly damp air and the atmospheric, dark cobbled streets to create an unforgettable memory. Fantastic guide and highly recommended!
The tour was great so without any hesitation my rating is 5.The tour was exactly what I had expected and hoped for. The guide knew excellent English and was quite relaxed and entertaining. The stories were quite interesting and we had good laughs about them. The duration of the tour was just right, meaning long enough to feel happy you took it but not that long that it gets boring or exhausting. All in all I would warmly recommend this it :)
After trying to book the national park, we had unfortunately left it too late so instead opted for the Funky Bike Tour and Ghost Tour.
The bike tour was very interesting and our tour guide Catherine was brilliant. She had amazing knowledge of the area. We loved exploring the old soviet factories.
The second tour was the ghost tour and was also very informative and our tour guide (another Catherine) was again great. She also gave us some brilliant suggestions for not just Tallinn but Moscow as well. Delicious hot chocolate at the end!
Very good email correspondence as well. Definitely recommend!
Tour was interesting and fun! Our tourguide Heli spoke very good english and had interesting stories to tell about the legends of Tallinn Old town. I learned a lot although I'm a local and have lived in Tallinn all my life.
Tallinn Ghost Tour
Very interesting tour, knowledgeable and friendly guide. Saw parts of Tallinn we had not yet seen and heard stories from Tallinn’s past. Hot chocolate at the end was a bonus. Thank you.

Totally enjoyable and interesting trip
I highly recommend this tour. If you have to get from Riga to Vilnius anyway, you might as well see all the interesting sights along the way and learn something about each of these countries. The guide was quite knowledgeable, the stops were exactly what I would have wanted to see and would have taken day trips from Riga or Vilnius to see. The van was comfortable and the lunch stop was quite pleasant. It did make for a very long day, however, and I found that I had to take the next day off from sightseeing in order to rest up after 11 hours of touring and 15,635 steps (and I didn't walk as much as some).
like the tour
the tour guide was informative and friendly, van was comfortable and the places that we went visted were well picked. Thanks
Great day trip from Tallinn
Myself and 3 friends had a great day with Kurt and especially enjoyed visiting the abandoned town. It's a long day, for sure, but you get to see so much of the country, so it's totally worth it. Standing across the river from Russia was another highlight.

The vehicle was modern and comfortable and Kurt was an excellent guide, taking us to a nice spot for a delicious lunch too!
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
Best way to go from Tallinn to Riga!
