Eva M. is an excellent guide with a great fund of knowledge, excellent English and a very pleasant personality who showed us around Tallinn from top to bottom. We saw all the interesting highlights and enjoyed her many anecdotes. If you are looking for an excellent guide in Tallinn you won't go wrong booking with Eva M.

Eva-Maria was waiting for us when we left the port. Her 3 hr walking tour engaged the whole family 11yr-75yr. Not only did she tell and show us the lower and upper town sites, but she enlightened us with history and present day information about the delightful city of Tallinn. We met her at 10 and she left us at 1. We were able to grab a bite to eat and take a taxi back to the ship. The younger ones walked back. This city seems to take you back to medevial times. Her English is excellent!

Tallinn was an unexpected gem on our cruise and Eva-Maria was the perfect guide. Steeped in history, she connected all the dots and provided a very clear and engaging historical account of the city. It is a real treat to walk the narrow cobblestone streets with some buildings dating to the 1400s and interact with local street merchants. Eva-Maria provided the perfect environment for a wonderful tour.

Jay BoekhoffUnited States
Eve-Maria was perfect for our group. She listened to our interests and designed a two day itinerary that exactly met our needs. Her personal involvement with the singing revolution was moving and informative. Besides seeing the sights, the chance to have extensive time in discussion and learn first hand of Estonian life exceeded our expectations.
Allen ShaverUnited States
Very enjoyable and informative walking tour. Past history as well current local businesses and small industries. Would highly recommend.
Sherry CampbellUnited States
Eva-Maria met us just outside the port gate. She had great local knowledge plus gave us a great background of the history of Tallinn as it relates to Russia. She met us with a driver to take us to the top of the town so our walking was mostly downhill! She was easy to talk to and answered all of our questions without hesitation. Her English was very good. We felt like we got a great lesson on Tallinn's history and also the way Tallinn lives today.

Eva-Maria was fantastic. We were moved and inspired by her tour for us.
Eva is the perfect tour guide to get an overview of history, people, life style, polítics, food, etc. She was very patient with our 3 generation family. I highly recommend her to any visitor of Talinn. She does also tours in other cities and countries near Estonia.

Eva-Maria provided great assistance and was very accommodating in adapting to the unusual requirements for our visit, which included selection of ideal filming location and translation services.

Eva-Maria is a very knowledgeable guide. We ( agroup of 9) really enjoyed having her as our guide. It's the history of the country and its inhabitants that makes a visit to Estonia so interesting. Eva mixed factual information with personal experiences during major happenings in an inspiring way that really added value to all that she shared with us. A full hearted recommendation! Thanks Eva!
Peter JenksUnited Kingdom
Eva-Maria is the best! Super fun, super pleasant and super smart. Knowledge of her native Estonia (I did Tallinn) is profound. Current and historical perspectives were very interesting. As were the restaurants she recommended. Great guide. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am delighted to hear that you were so pleased with the tour and with me as your private guide. I am happy to know that also enjoyed the meal at this amazing seaside restaurant which to my mind has great food and on of the best views to the city. It has not been part of my regular tours but I felt that it was the right choice for you. I do hope you will come back to Estonia again so that I could show you more of our countryside as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for good feedback. I am happy to have been your guide in Tallinn!

Eva-Maria was insightful, knowledgeable, exciting, and she tailored the tour to our group's interests. She obviously was delighted to share her city and her culture with us. Also, she recommended a restaurant and that lunch was a highlight of the entire cruise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a delight to guide your group and you were all so engaged and interested in everything I and Tallinn had to offer during our time together. I am thrilled to hear that the restaurant I booked for you with the private room and lunch there was the highlight of your cruise. I welcome you back to Estonia to have even more wonderful experiences next time!
Eileen C.United States
Great guide, great visit! Eva-Maria was knowledgeable, friendly and very informative. She shared personal stories with us that helped us understand Tallin -today and in the past. Talinn is a fairytale city with so much history and charm. Eva-Maria helped us truly appreciate the culture and beautiful buildings and sites. Our group of ten couldn't have been more pleased.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the warm words and great feedback. I was happy to read that the tour and the city of Tallinn charmed your group. I welcome you back to explore more of Tallinn and Estonian countryside in the future.

Eva was sensational! Informed, delightful. Articulate in many languages, a great communicator. I give her my highest recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the great comments! I also had a wonderful time with you and I was inspired by your enthusiasm. I was happy to see how much you loved the city of Tallinn and walking through its cobblestone streets. I look forward welcoming you back. Next time we will do the great Tallinn food tour. You gave me some very good ideas for setting up such program.
Excellent guide, we really were able to visit most of Tallin thanks to Eva Maria even if we did not have the best weather (some rain), she was especially very considerate regarding my mother that is 84 and was traveling with us
Joseph StanleyUnited States
Guide was great. Pleasant informative and passionate about her beautiful country
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. I was happy to guide you through the peaceful Tallinn Old Town on this a bit cold winter day. The cup of hot mulled wine was a great idea to warm ourselves. I hope to welcome you to Tallinn next time during summer season in greenery and with white nights.
Richard FelkerUnited States
Eva-Maria is everything a good tour guide should be. She knows everything about Tallinn and Estonia, she gave us lots of information but not too much. The pace was perfect and we really enjoyed our time with her. I would highly recommend her. Her English was terrific.
Sheryl MeitinUnited States
She made us fall in love with Estonia. She was the best guide we had on the whole trip. Just wonderful.

Excellent. Knowledgeable, friendly, attentive to the children and their interests. We spent a delightful and interesting morning visiting the old town with Eva Maria.

Robert GoldUnited States
Eva-Marie was a great tour guide and we got a great overview of the city and the rain did not stop her or us! I would have liked to have gone into some of the sites (buildings, churches--even if additional charges) but it was not suggested. She left us at the Kiek in the Kok (not included but planned) which was not a great attraction. All in all, I would highly recommend Eva-Marie!!

All good things to say about Triin and her incredible knowledge of pretty much everything we threw her way. Impressive guiding in a beautiful town, topped with a great meal at the end.

Our day in Tallinn with Eva-Maria was excellent! Even though there was so much to see, we never felt like we were being rushed through everything. Tallinn is such a lovely city to stroll and Eva-Maria's explanations really helped put what we were seeing into perspective. I also really appreciated our conversations on what it was like living in Estonia. It wasn't just a recitation of facts. I liked too that we weren't on a hard itinerary. When we felt like stopping to browse - we did.
