Tallinn in a Nutshell tour is a perfect way to get the first glimpse of Tallinn with a local friend! Our guides Kadri, Jonas, Risto, and Dominic have been living & working years in Tallinn what makes us the perfect group to show you around! We will present to you our city in a fun, simple and honest way.

I have been working as a tour guide for more than 4 years and while the history stays the same, the people coming on my tours are what makes it so unique and special every time! It's important to see and feel what your audience wants, how they react to your stories and how do they go along with you.

We will introduce you ou our interesting history, our language, what do we eat here and how Estonians are in general while keeping in mind that first and foremost, it should always be fun for you! :)

See you at our Experience!

Kadri was a wonderfull host. The tour was not just based on standard facts, it was also funny and entertaining and we learned a lot about the city and Estonian culture. I would recommend her and her colleagues without a doubt.

Not bad so called "free tour". I usually search AirBnB for unique experiences offered by locals, but this wasn't it. The guide Jonas was very nice, he shared lots of interesting information about Tallinn. It would be nice to have a short stop inside during the tour when the temperatures are freezing. The tour guests were cold and not all of them made till the end.
