Eva Marie was a wonderful guide, she was pleasant, informative and very passionate about sharing information about her beloved Estonia. We were moved to tears when you told us about the music. We were very happy with our tour and thank you for arranging it for us. Carol & Glyn Price. & Guy & Mary Davies
Was an interesting Tour with her. Nice Place to have a Lunch Break. Seems she knows everybody in the Town and everbody knows her.

Eva-Maria gave us a comprehensive and informative tour of Tallinn . She was excellent in her communication and just gave a great tour. There were 10 of us and one in a wheelchair. She hired a van with a hoist for the wheelchair and it worked out very well. It was just a really enjoyable tour in this lovely city. It is so much nicer to have a local that is able to answer your questions.

All our guides with "ToursByLocals" were excellent! However Eva-Maria was a definite "5+++"! She went above the 5 rating! Pleasant, knowledgeable, flexible and fun to be with.
Our tour of Tallinn was made all the more enjoyable having Eva-Maria as our guide. We knew very little about Estonia and Tallinn before meeting Eva-Maria and we came away from our tour, much the wiser. She is passionate about her work and very knowledgeable and proud of her country. She even took the time to find a great restaurant for us on a crowed day which turned out to be one of the best shore meals we had on our entire cruise. Very engaging person and we all thought Eva-Maria's tour was excellent.

We enjoyed an enjoyable and informative tour of Tallinn. Everything went to plan from hotel pick up to our return. Enjoyable and informative by a guide who clearly is experienced and knowledgeable about the city in which she lives. Our tour was by foot within the upper and lower city with comfortable transport to take us beyond. A local cafe stop provided us with a delicious treat and coffee, hot Chocolate Lava Cake with red berries and a black currant sorbet. Excellent day, thank you!.

We had a great day with Eva-Maria seeing all the highlights of Tallin. She really knows the City in an intimate way and her enthusiasm for the Estonian culture is very impressive.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great feedback. It was a delight to show you Tallinn on such a beautiful sunny day. I hope the tour inspired you to come back and bring the rest of your family with next time.
Our second day with Eva-Maria was lovely too as we went further out of the Old Town! We all felt that we understood the struggles and resilience of the Estonian people so much better and we have great admiration for all Estonians. Our time with you will stay with us forever! Rhonda and group from Aus!

Eva-Marie was great. She is so well organized: she and her driver have it down pat. Every minute of the 4-hour tour was interesting and efficient. And such a bargain. On a softer note, she communicates her pride and passion for Estonia and Tallinn is a remarkable way. She literally brought tears to our eyes in her telling of the Singing Revolution and Estonian liberty. DON'T MISS THIS IF YOU HAVE THE CHANCE.
Eva-Maria was a fantastic ambassador for her city. Of all the tours we went on, this one made us want to go back! Eva-Maria is very knowledgeable about her subject, but also has a lovely warmth. She (and driver) showed us modern Tallinn, then we walked all around Tallinns medieval city. A coffee and chocolate cake completed a fantastic experience! Thank you Eve-Maria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour and grew to like Tallinn so much that you wish to come back. Yes the chocolate cake with coffee is a nice break to get energy along the tour. I look forward to welcoming you back to explore perhaps some of the beautiful Estonian nature the next time!

My guide Eva was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I very much enjoyed my time with her. She provided everything she said she would and more. Anyone would be fortunate to have her as a guide in Tallinn. Tallinn is a wonderful place to visit.
We had a wonderful time in Gdansk. Triin is a very nice and professional guide. Thank you so much!! From James Liu Taiwan
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We're glad you enjoyed your tour with Triin. As Eva-Maria was not availabe, Mr. Liu asked Laura to find him a replacement guide.
Eva-Maria and her husband as driver gave us a great experience in Tallinn. Her English was excellent, the van modern and clean and her knowledge of the history and culture of the area comprehensive. They were very enthusiastic about their country and city and this was translated into a very enjoyable experience for us. We not only saw the sights but gained a great appreciation for their history and culture. They even took us to their family summer cottage. We very much enjoyed our experience with them.

Eva-Maria delivered the tour exactly as promised, and with grace as well as patience for our "slower" group members. She was prompt when meeting us at the ship and returning us there. She was very informative, answered questions openly, and shared the kind of personal information that helped us get a more vivid picture of a beautiful city. We especially enjoyed the light lunch at the "upside down boat".
