Excellent way to see the real Tallinn
This was such a fun way to explore the city after the crowds of tourists have left. The legends and stories were entertaining and added to the experience of this beautiful city. The guide was well informed and she had a most welcoming personality.
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.
Great Tour in the Night
Great Guide along with evening tour
Well Worth it
Informative Guide, great Hot Chocolate
The guide was very informative but unfortunately only 2 of us on the tour so it was not as interactive as it might have been. The Hot Chocolate at the end of the tour was most welcomed on a cold night and the café we were taken to was nicely themed for the tour. I would recommend the tour for sure but better if more people.
Great tour
Our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. The local stories helped us to understand more of Tallinn's history. There was a delightful added touch in the form of a delicious hot chocolate in a fabulous cafe at the end of the tour.
Very enjoyable
We really enjoyed the tour, Helen is very knowledgeable and has a great personality.
Thanks for the Old Town Ghost Tour!
We had so much fun at the tour, the guide was a real professional. It was impressive how excited she was even though she's probably had the same tour hundreds of times before.
An excellent service - to say the truth the rest of our group were initially not all that interested about a tourist tour in Tallin during a bachelorette party, yet they were all giving high and positively surprised praise afterwards. Many thanks to the lady who was our guide, she's exceptional! And of course the stories were interesting as well :)
fun interesting great guide
Our guide Helli* was great! She was very funny and a great story teller.
I had a blast! :-)
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.
