We had a great day learning about the city and tasting the various foods. Our guide was outstanding in her knowledge, and took pride in guiding us through her culture!

This tour was so much more than my daughter and I expected! Rasmus, our personal guide, not only carefully arranged an interesting food and drink experience, but also was an excellent historical information source. He adapted his timing to our interests depending on where we were, and he actually spent more time than the itinerary allowed because we were having such a good time together. I must say that this tour was one of the highlights of our cruise and was better than any of the shore excursions the cruise line offered!

My wife and I had a private tour - just the two of us. Our guide was local who told us stories of when Estonia was occupied by the USSR. Tallin is a beautiful city and our experience was outstanding. We had local samplings of food and drink. I highly recommend this tour!

This turned out to be the best excursion we had in the Baltic. We were met by Nikolai at the gate and he took us on a driving tour with Paul, our driver, to get us into the old city. We were very pleased to have a very small group. Nikolai took us on a great walking tour throughout the old city and provided excellent commentary on the history and culture of Estonia. He had prearranged stops along the route to visit restaurants and shops where we had reserved tables and food prepared for us. Everything we tried was wonderful. Nikolai had a few surprises for us at the conclusion of the tour and we really appreciated them later on the cruise ship. We had ample time after the tour to wander around on our own and Paul met us at the designated site for a ride back to the ship at the time of our choosing. The tour was great, and Nikolai made it the greatest.
