What people are saying about Tallinn

Pau our guide was exceptional. Very informative with a good mix of history, culture and of course the food. Been on food tours before but this is a lot of food. We really enjoyed Tallin and would definately go back. We would not have been able to experience the foods without being on the tour. Thank you so much Pau.

It was a great tour of the old town and showed many of the sites. Tour was a great way to see the sites of old town. Food choices were great, they were more of a snack portion but by the end of the tour you were full. You'll still be able to get dinner in the late evening and breakfast in the morning.

Good site. Already bought tickets to various attractions in several countries. Never any problems. On the contrary, in Dubai, at the Burj Khalifa, with tickets, you can skip many hours of queues and go directly to the elevator

Our guide Lina made the tour especially wonderful and personal. Visiting this unique island reveals the history of the country and traditions and how the customs differ throughout Estonia.

Really a great and easy experience getting to know Tallinn and tasting some of the delicious Estonian food. Highly recommended
