Wonderful private tour with smiles, history and laughs

We meet up with Marit on a very busy day in Old town Tallin. She made it clear to us that we can take breaks as we go, go places we wanted to see more of.. basically whatever we wanted while she will guided us through Old town and shared its interesting history. I higly recommed this tourguide for those who want a more private tour in smaller groups. More relaxing and to see the best bits of Tallin. Marit was an excellent tourguide. We had a really good time and got great pictures! thanks again Marit!

Booked on short notice, smooth service

We booked the private tour the night before and GYG secured the organization within hours. The tour itself provided an entertaining overview of the city, as well as numerous points of contact, in order to continue exploring Tallinn on its own. Exactly what you would expect from a 90-minute lead.
