* A traveler said: "My wife and I had an unexpected private tour of Tallin due to the reduced tourist travel during Covid. Our guide was a perfect English speaker who was extremely knowledgeable in the history of Estonia and took us to special places that we would have never found on our own. His recommendation for a lunch restaurant was superb. Also very impressive is that we were picked up at our hotel a 9:15 AM, greeted at the ferry terminal in Helsinki when we returned at 10:15 PM and driven back to our hotel which was quite a distance. Overall a 5 star experience!"

* A traveler said: "The day started well with the driver who was to take me to the ferry was on time. He was friendly and explained the process required for boarding the ferry and where to meet my guide when I arrived in Tallinn. The guide in Tallinn was very knowledgeable and the 3 hour walking tour passed very quickly in the old town seeing all the major sites to be seen and where you may want to go back to after the walking tour. After the walking tour the guide left me to spend the next few hours walking about where we did not go with her. Before she left I was given a map and shown where I had to be to meet her to be taken back to the ferry for the return to Helsinki. There are plenty of restaurants to eat at after the walking tour and there is food to suit all tastes. On return to Helsinki the driver was there to meet me and take me back to my hotel. Overall it was a great day out and would highly recommend it. The cobbled streets in Tallinn can make walking hard so make sure you have sturdy shoes that support you."

Of all the places we went, I loved the Library the best - if Croatia had libraries like that I would never leave - I would just move in! Thank you Emek for being such a wonderful guide in such a vibrant city and sharing with us all the quirky things as well as the history with us. You made me truly fall in love with Helsinki!"
