We really enjoyed the Tallinn Old Town Walking Tour despite chilly weather. This was the first day of our stay in Tallinn and the tour was very knowledgable and interesting giving extensive information about main landmarks and attractions. You could spot the places you liked most and come back to experience them thoroughly. Our tour guide Katerina was fantastic. She provided such a warm and friendly present from the moment she greeted us until we parted with a hug.

The guide was at the agreed spot on time and was very nice to the whole group. He was also very knowledgeable about Tallinn and its history. The route taken covered almost all of Old Town and the group was indeed small (8 people) which guaranteed a very personal experience for all. I would highly recommend this activity for anyone new to Tallinn and wanting to know more about this fascinating city and its culture.

Great walking tour with lovely guide

Our guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about Tallinn. She took us on a well-planned walk around the lower and upper town; she made sure we saw key sights and we had some great views across the town too. Because we were a small group, we were able to go into places that bigger groups wouldn't have been able to access. Our guide was a really friendly person who was happy to answer questions and talk about her city. Recommended.
