Full description
As you enter the old gates to roam the medieval streets of Tallinn, a new chapter will begin in your life. Not only will there be entertainment to bring history to life in colorful tales, but more importantly, you'll witness the awe and amazement as it sets in. Like a picture from a fairy tale, or at least every episode of Game of Thrones, there will be dragons, noble knights, clever merchants and god-fearing men as examples of past struggles, courage and fierce love to desire. And to scatter all worries and misconceptions, when facing countless centuries of historical events, your young and witty guide will guarantee that dry facts and dizzy figures really are a thing of the past, and the time will fly in good spirits and worthy remembrance. However, it is important to note, that although you may never come back to this cozy capital, in a metaphorical sense of things, you will never leave. Let this be a concept of love at first sight.

Wonderful tour

We did this tour in November and there was just us and Anne the guide. It was like walking around the Old town with a friend. Anne was very knowledgeable and very passionate. I would recommend you do this tour early on in your stay as it will give you a great overview of the history of Tallinn

A brilliant young guide who told us everything and more

It was an absolute delight to have Darja as our guide as we expierenced the beauty and wonders of Old Tannin. We were so very lucky to meet with someone so enthusiastic and with such an excellent command of English. We heard so much about the history and legends and were able to ask her questions about different buildings such as Fat Margaret and The Three Sisters Hotel, The Guild, the medieval churches- the list is endless! We learned too about the current President and how the Estonian Parliament worked. She was very knowledgable and as there were only the two of us (weren’t we lucky !) we came away feeling we understood so much more about such a wonderful city. Thank you so much.

Outstanding, informative, interesting;

A wonderful kind and patient young man was our tour guide. He spoke perfect English, explained interesting and interested the rich history of Tallinn, was very knowledgeable in current events and the modern trend of Estonia and Tallinn. He answered questions patiently and knowledgeable, even questions from our 3 year old daughter. The walking tour became an indelible experience we will think back to with warm memories for a very long time. Thank you!
