A Recent Review of this tour

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.
