Great way to explore the local culture
Insight into the local culture and history. Food was varied and great
Goede gids/ matig eten
De manier om de stad te leren kennen. Onze gids vertelde veel leuke verhalen over de stad. Eten was matig. Geen drankjes
Worthwhile outing -- plan to skip dinner that day.
Siim was a fantastic guide! Thoughtful, knowledgeable, kind and funny. Great selections in terms of our stops, and a nice pace to the activity. Highly recommend.
Nice walk and informative tasting of a variety of estonian food
Meeting at Fat Margarets Tower, og Margarets Fat Tower as it should be called, we walked around in Kalamaja and outside the northwestern part of the old town.
We visited five places, which each gave us an idea of the local food culture. The guide was fantastic, nice, well formulated and informed us of the food culture and its background. plus many other things, and we could compare it to scandinavian and mediterranian food culture as well.(we were a small group from Denmark and Greece).
The last place provided a rare fantastic dessert with its own history.

They just need to be more specific about the meeting point.
They specified Pikk 70, which is at the maritime museum just inside the city gate, and Fat Margarets tower, just outside the city gate.

In spite of this minor detail, this tour is highly recommendable.

Pictures are of the FAT tower and a pastry place we visited.
Liine is great!
We took this tour with our small team and it was really cool! You get to see very different places, from a small bakery to hipster places and everything in between. Liine is a wonderful guide and has a baker's diploma herself, so she loves food and cooking.
