We had a great tour, some walking, some with a kind driver. Our tour guide was very cheerful and spoke German perfectly! We woud recommend this special tour to everybody who wants to experience Tallinn with a local guide in a small group. We went to see so many places and could get such an impressive feeling of Estland.
