About me:

An entrepreneur in the travel sector, with a background in design and marketing. I’m interested in getting to know different cultures through travel, taking photos, and making new friends across the world.

If you’re interested in discovering Tallinn’s weird and wonderful gems, local neighbourhoods, green spaces, awesome food scene, or anything really, feel free to get in touch! Read more

My passions are:

  • Photography
  • Design
  • Travelling
  • Skiing
  • Listening to music
  • Business
  • Yoga
  • Meditation

In my city I have great tips for:

  • Cafés & coffee shops
  • Parks & nature
  • Restaurants & food
  • Hidden gems
  • Historical sights

I love my city because: I really love Tallinn because it’s small enough that you can walk or bike pretty much anywhere, and big enough that there’s always lots of cool stuff happening. And the lovely atmosphere of the medieval Old Town, of course. It takes you back in time.

My idea of a great trip is: Wandering around smaller streets and neighbourhoods with my camera, exploring local life and culture, or hiking from desert to jungle to mountains.

I have travelled to: Over 45 countries on all continents (besides Antarctica!) My favourites: Brazilian people, New Zealand nature, Moroccan chaos, and the US West Coast.

Great fun!
Kalev is a chilled-out and patient instructor and the whole experience was great! I am not the most coordinated and sporty person and I managed not to fall off the board during our few-hour trip around the Pirita River bend. Not sure how I would have coped with the sea, but coming back the river was also quite windy/wavey, and we still stayed on our boards, enjoying the sunset and beautiful views to the Pirita Harbour and the Baltic Sea.
Kalev was awesome!
for Kalev
Kalev provided a wonderful overview of Tallinn's old town area and patiently answered all our questions. He also took as to the Kadriorg palace and showed us around. He was friendly and very knowledgeable about all the places and was willing to act as a guide for much longer than the 3 hours we had scheduled the tour for.
I would highly recommend him as your trusted guide around Tallinn!
The best local guide
for Kalev
Kalev must be the best local guide in Tallinn. His explanation gives us a variety of perspectives. Not only the historical knowledge about the city, but also the background of the culture of entrepreneurs was explained with the background. His guide is rich in inspiration!!!!
