We had such a wonderful time. Despite being very busy that day, Nordic Experience found a way to give our family a private tour we’ll never forget. Our tour guide, Erik, was a wealth of knowledge. He told us history not only of Estonia but of the whole region while walking us around Talinn. He was kind and patient with our children and very accommodating for Grandma who has some mobility issues. After the walking tour, he took us to the Viking Village where we had an outstanding meal and then a ton of fun throwing axes, shooting bows and arrows, and flinging a trebuchet. The kids had a blast while we all actually learned lots of history. Wonderful!

Tallinn with an expert
My wife and I had a day in Tallinn and it was wonderful. Our guide, Triin Jensen, was full of energy and provided a super understanding of the city. We only had a few hours but Triin found a way to get us to all the best spots and provide a great history of the many sites. We were so fortunate to have Triin as our guide and I would recommend her for any tour of Tallinn.

Short tour in Tallinn old town
We booked our tour with very short notice, but anyway we got it. The guide, Eva-Maria, was super. Her stories about places what we visited during our tour, were interesting and succulent.
Visiting Tallinn I highly recommend Eva-Maria and her company, you will get a memorable experience.
