Eva-Maria was just great. She gave us lots of interesting information about Talinn, Estonia as a country, their history, people. She was very patient with our group of 18 people - not always fully following the agreed rules :-) We really enjoyed these 3 hours, being guided by Eva-Maria around the beautiful medevial historic town of Talinn. I fully recommend her to anybody. From our side - 5 stars out of 5 ;-)

Eva-Marie was wonderful. She made our day very special. Tallin is a charming and quaint city and Eva-Marie shared her knowledge and love for her city with us. We felt like we were spending the day with an old friend. Thank you so much. We LOVED it all. We also thank you for the perfect souvenirs you helped us find. If you are going to Estonia be sure and book a tour with Eve-Marie. Nancy & Arlene.

Eva-Maria is delightful, speaks excellent English, is very knowledgeable and organized. We very much appreciated her taking care of our unique request to learn more about the entrepreneurial community in Tallinn. She arranged for us to visit an incubator which was opened for us on a Sunday. We visited many important sites and dined on a delicious typical Estonian lunch that had been pre-arranged for efficiency. We highly recommend Eva-Maria.

Eva picked us up right outside our ship. We did a beautiful walking tour of Tallinn and she gave us a lot of information about the country, the city & their culture. We saw the highlights of the city and enjoyed the walking tour. It was specially enjoyable to be able to speak with her about how the country has changed and it's political and social evolution. We asked a lot of questions on those topics and were impressed with her knowledge. Very engaging. Highly recommend.
We loved our tour with Eva. She was passionate and knowledgeable about the history and culture of Estonia. Her anecdotes brought humor to the tour. She maximized our time to show the highlights of the city plus the Soviet history. We loved tasting local cuisine. I highly recommend Eva as a guide and this tour. We will likely be back to Estonia.

Best walking tour. Thank you Eva Maria for the great day. We loved your explanation and your beautiful city. Very easy going at our pace (we had a 3 year old who was not in the best of moods) but still got the see most of the highlights of Talin. We will return and definetly hire you again.

Our family of 4 from the US had a fantastic visit to the beautiful and magical city of Tallinn with our exceptional guide Eva-Maria. As a true local, her intimate knowledge of the city was key to our successful visit having only a short time available to see the sights. We have used TBLs across Western Europe and Eva-Maria was a true 5 star guide and we highly recommend. Only regret? Not staying longer. Tallinn, Estonia is a gem and an inspiring city that exemplifies what can happen when people are free.

Tallinn took us by complete surprise. This city and the Estonians are an amazing people. Our guide Eva Marie introduced us to the country's past and present via the old city and the new city. Overall a great day.. Her enthusiasm and knowledge allowed us to connect with this Balkan beacon. Thanks again The Wolin Family

We loved our private tour of Tallinn with our tour guide Eva-Maria. She was so personable, knowledgeable, and spoke fluent English. We enjoyed spending the day with her learning all about her beautiful city. There's no better way to see Tallinn than with Eva-Maria! We highly recommend!

Eva-Maria was great. She showed us the highlights and also hidden gems of Tallinn. We appreciated the bus ride to old Town and her guiding through Old Town. She was patience and offered great advice of to her things to do and eat in the city. Thank you!
Manisha PatelUnited States
We were very impressed with how well she kept our large group of 44 people engaged with the tour. We ranged from age 5 to 76 years old. Very knowledgable and accommodating. We had a BLAST!
Kathryn DeSilvaUnited States
Eva-Maria was fabulous. She was extremely informative and entertaining. Growing up in Tallinn, she was able to share with us her personal experiences of live in Estonia and all the changes that have occurred. In five hours, we were able to see so much of the city while enjoying her stories and knowledge. I would highly recommend her. She was absolutely wonderful!!! We enjoyed her tour so much that we would definitely like to come back and visit again.

Eva Marie was a gem of a guide in Tallinn. In addition to upper and lower town where Eva Marie was so knowledgeable of the town and country history, we also visited a VikingVillage with demonstrations of archery, hatchet throwing, etc. for the kids (and adults participated too.) Eva Marie also went out of her way to track down a camera that was left on the bus, and had it delivered to a future port for us. She created an outstanding day for all of us.
Dana Cavazos-RushUnited States
Eva-Maria did a FABULOUS job. The rain, wind, and cold couldn't stop us from enjoying a full 5 hour walking tour. Little driving was done so we got from point A to point B faster. She kept our attention at bay ,and our minds wondering and then our appetites feed with an AMAZING lunch. The atmosphere where we ate was eventful, and the food was YUM... So as you can tell all 5 of us enjoyed ourselves very much, and could have stayed longer. Thank you for an amazing time even with the cold weather...

Eva-Maria is absolutely fantastic! We adored her, she kept our tour interesting and moving at just the right pace. The Viking village is a must see/do if you have kids (mine are 18 & 21 but still kids!! haha) We loved it and the walking tour of old town Tallin was amazing. You will not be disappointed if you book a tour with Eva-Maria, I highly recommend her!!
Harvey FeldmanUnited States
Eva-Maria is an outstanding guide.......very knowledgeable, has a warm, friendly personality, and a good command of English. She prearranged a very memorable visit my wife and I had at the synagogue in Tallinn where we met and spoke with the rabbi. Eva-Maria tailored our tour to accommodate my wife who requires a manual wheelchair, which is not easy to do in a town with many cobblestone streets. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and highly recommend Eva-Maria.
We were a family of 5 and enjoyed wonderful evening Soviet Legacy tour of 3hr with EvaMaria.She was very punctual, knowledgeable and very engaging.She gave us true insight into the day to day life of Estonians before, during and after the Soviet Era and especially interesting to hear was the Singing Revolution and how the Estonians take pride of music in their lives.She also gave us a recommendation to head over to the KGB Headquarter for a 1hr visit they run 2x per day, that was really impressive.
