Hi! I'm Kadri and I'm the owner of EstAdventures, a small, locally owned and operated tour company offering walking tours in English and in Spanish. Enjoy this experience with Marko, Risto or Jonas, our guides work exclusively for EstAdventures.

Marko studied archaeology so when he’s not fighting his way past tourists in Tallinn, he’s out on archaeological excavations, hoping to find the first pyramid of Estonia.
Risto is a Witty student, patient teacher, hard worker, competitive Athlete, opportunistic adventurer, and yet, only human after all.

Jonas is a world citizen who loves nothing more than rambling about the history of Tallinn and Estonia. Originally from Iceland, Jonas has fallen in love with his adopted country over the past ten years and now has the immense local knowledge on our country!

See you at our experience!

Our tour guide was Jonas. He was very friendly and together with him the two-hour tour was a very interesting experience with a lot of new knowledge for me. For everyone who is the first time in Tallinn, I would highly recommend the tour, because it helps to unterstand the history of Estonia.

Great value and really insightful. Good to do on your first day so you get a feel of the town and visit some nice landmarks and buildings, whilst gaining some knowledge of how the country gained its independence and the history of Estonia during and after the second world war:))
