What people are saying about Tallinn

The 9.30am departure was on time and our guide greeted us warmly and professionally took us through the tour. We returned to the hotel around 6 pm, and what we took home is the history of Estonia, the Estonian culture, the local customs and traditions. During the tour there were several stops: waterfalls, national park, lunch in a typical tavern, fishing village and a manor. 10+ to Jorge for his sympathy, culture and professionalism.

We did this tour with the guide Helena .. what can I say ... everything was fantastic. The tour is made up of various stages, one more interesting than the other. We only had some doubts due to the very cold weather and heavy snow, but in reality it's even more beautiful like this. We don't speak English very well but Helena helped us with that too.. she was super good. We were really happy…

An exceptional tour and a brilliant insight into Estonian Nature. I would recommend to anyone which would like to experience a day out of Tallinn. Jorge our guide was a fountain of knowledge which topped the tour.

We learned a lot about Tallinn's history, buildings and surroundings. We were able to gain many impressions and take beautiful pictures. Our guide George was very nice and knowledgeable.

Really recommend this tour!! Jorge the tour guide took us to some really amazing places and he was really great! Don't miss this day trip if you are in Tallinn!
