Here is what our clients say about us!

Reviewed in July 2019

We booked Nordic Experience handicap accessible tours for three different countries (Denmark, Estonia, and Sweden). We were a group of 14 people, ages ranging from 10 to 72. All three tours were amazing, our guides and drivers were kind, friendly, had great knowledge of each of the countries we visited and were very attentive to our needs and requests (specially my dad´s needs who has polio hence needs handicap assistance). They gave us exact instructions as to where we should meet our guides/drivers, and they were always on time.

I highly recommend this tour company to anyone who is looking for a handicap accessible tour. You can request a handicap accessible van which has an integrated lift, hence the person can stay in his/her scooter when getting on and off the bus, making it very easy to visit all places. All places visited are handicap friendly, guides are very flexible regarding your needs.

When booking, you can also ask for guides who speak a certain language and they will do everything in their possibilities to make sure they can provide it to you. Another great perk when booking with Nordic Experience is that the more tours you book with them, the better price you will receive.

I highly recommend using Nordic Experience tours for your next Baltic trip.

Private Day Trips in Estonia from Tallinn

Did you know there’s more to Estonia than Tallinn? The medieval capital of Tallinn is lovely indeed, but you also have to explore the rest of the country. Learn where to go with these wonderful day trip options from Tallinn!

Whether you’re in Estonia for a day or longer, there’s plenty of time and reason to explore what lies beyond the capital city. From fishermen’s villages to rural islands, from bogs to old soviet barracks – there’s so many unique, relaxing and exciting places nearby Tallinn for a diverse range of interests.

A day trip out of Tallinn with a private guide is so much more rewarding with a local insight and know-how, and should include a visit to the coast where among other things you can see historical fishing villages, scenic rural landscapes of fairy tale forests and fields. If you’d like to explore further than just the coast, then head across the sea and discover the many unique rural islands a short sail away at Muhu and Saaremaa islands. For those looking for something a bit more alternative, there is also a coastal town of Paldiski, which was once a closed off Soviet nuclear submarine training center.

Here is what our clients say about us!

We had such a wonderful time. Despite being very busy that day, Nordic Experience found a way to give our family a private tour we’ll never forget. Our tour guide, Erik, was a wealth of knowledge. He told us history not only of Estonia but of the whole region while walking us around Tallinn. He was kind and patient with our children and very accommodating for Grandma who has some mobility issues. After the walking tour, he took us to the Viking Village where we had an outstanding meal and then a ton of fun throwing axes, shooting bows and arrows, and flinging a trebuchet. The kids had a blast while we all actually learned lots of history. Wonderful!

We are a group of 9 travelers who spent 4 days in Estonia.
We took 3 tours with Estonian Experience. The planning part was very easy, as we were very ably served by Triin, who helped us combine tours to ensure we covered what we wanted to in the days we had available.

The 2 tours we very much enjoyed were :
Day Trip to Muhu & Saaremaa Islands, and
Lahemaa National Park & Manors with Bog Walk

They offered an interesting combination of food, sea/coastal views, manor visits, castles, windmills in rural Estonia. Christina our guide was most attentive and friendly.
Estonia is a small but interesting country with young energetic people; and Estonian Experience did a fantastic job showing it to us.

Date of experience: May 2018

Really good trip for all ages. Excellent guide in Neil who is extremely knowledgeable on Viking and Estonian history.
We were there in the snow which actually added to the beauty of the place. Lunch was very good and the trip was well organised in terms of transportation.
This was actually the second time my wife and I had done this trip and we enjoyed it so much the first time that we wanted our sons and granddaughter to see the place.

Date of experience: February 2018

Did this tour on Saturday with Hanno as our guide. Was a great way to spend 4 hours outside of Tallinn. We drove to the port town of Paldiski with a couple of scenic stops along the way. Tour also included coffee and cake at an old Manor House, visiting some monastery ruins near manor house. Hanno provided us with some information about the history of Tallin’s occupations – very informative. Hanno was very polite and courteous and happy to drop us near hop-on-hop-off bus stop at conclusion of tour. Extremely comfortable car for the tour.
