This was an enjoyable trip out of the city. However the sights are very underwhelming. Being from an island country we see vast beaches and high cliffs daily so, for us, the cliffs were small and the waterfall uneventful. The visit to Paldiski was interesting to see as was the war plane. But overall the trip doesn’t offer a lot by way of interest or scenery.
All that said, why we enjoyed our day was down to our very interesting guide, Andres. He was so interesting to talk to and very knowledgable and insightful about Estonia’s history and about things in general. He has a mind full of information and a very nice guy too. He made our day. It was a pleasure to be in his company. So a big thank you to Andres!!
We also were very fortunate with the weather and it was nice to get out of the town for the day.

We met Liine on a damp morning. We recognised her immediately because of her big smile and enthusiastic waving! I suffer from awful travel sickness (literally any travel...) but her driving was perfect, all day.

We saw Soviet bunkers, an abandoned prison camp and quarry, a lighthouse, an amazing walk along the beach, and some of the best views I have ever seen. In between, Linne was our Oracle! She seemed to know literally everything about Estonia and its history, and she answered all of our questions (we had a lot) completely.

We both find extraordinary beauty in the bleak aspects of life and Estonia never fails to take your breath away.

Would DEFINITELY recommend.

My husband Pat and I opted for the private tour option since we only had a week in Tallinn, and without a rental car, we wanted to make the most of the trip by getting outside the capital for a bit. We took two private tours with Traveller, and neither one disappointed. On this tour, Sten picked us up promptly outside our AirBnB and gave us plenty of options of what we could go and see. Our response was "all of it." For the entire day (we left at 9am and got back around 5:30), we kept seeing one thing of beauty after another. Sten was so so knowledgeable about the history of Estonia, it's Occupation, it's subsequent Independence, what life is like now, and so much more. The highlight for me was climbing around the former limestone quarries and the flooded prison. If you're not afraid of heights, or, as he put it "to go mountain climbing in the country with no mountains", this is a real treat. Also the Soviet plane, now the home to a model airplane club, is surreal as you sit in pilot and Gunner seats and get transported back in time. We didn't only talk about the past, though. We talked hobbies, politics, culture, movies, etc. It really left us feeling like we'd made a friend in Estonia. I will absolutely recommend this company to anyone visiting the country.

Multi faceted tour with enthusiastic knowledgeable and obliging host Hannes. We took in everything from spectacular views of the Baltic to a traditional Russian restaurant to an old Soviet transport plane now the headquarters of a model aircraft club. My only regret is that we could not have done the Narva tour. I would certainly book traveller tours again.

I went on this trip with my son 11 years old not really expecing anything specific but "something interesting". As it turned out it was even far better than I expected. We got to see some really interesting places and a lot of beautiful sceneries. That itself would have been well worth the cost of the tour. But in addition our guide Robert was fantastic, he gave us a great history lesson about Estonia and created an exciting context to all we saw (and much more...). So both of us 49 and 11 years respectively were really satisfied with this tour and can recommend it to anyone no matter of age or interests!

I booked this tour after doing the Riga to Tallinn Tour with TravellerTours. Both were fantastic, this one was nice because you spent more time at the sights than in the van, due to the cliffs being so close to Tallinn. I'm terrible with names, so I forget our guide's name, but he was friendly and knowledgeable and made for a good trip. The lunch in Paldiski was also quite good, get the meat dumplings.
