Day Trip to Muhu & Saaremaa Islands
We did two day tours with Nordic Experience. One to Muhu & Saaremaa and a second day trip to Helsinki. Both were great tours! We particularly enjoyed the day to Muhu & Saaremaa and learned a lot from everything we saw.
Tallinn to Helsinki Day Trip & Panoramic Sightseeing Tour
It was a rainy cold day when we headed to Tallinn from Helsinki. Even the ferry crossing was dark & a bit on the rough side.
What a change when we were greeted at the Tallinn terminal by our guide Alexander.
A bright & bubbly contrast to the weather outside & boy did he know his stuff.
From the get go he was pleasant, accommodating, knowledgeable & absolutely loved his job & his country.
He had a sense of humor too which is always a bonus.
We had a running commentary as we drove through & around town. Alexander not only pointed out the highlights outside the car window but shared some of the complex & at times quirky history of Tallinn & Estonia.
We stopped & walked around parks, palaces & outdoor ampitheatres before even heading to the old town, all the time being educated & entertained by Alexander & our driver.
I couldn’t recommend this day trip enough. Sure it was a long, LONG day but it was so worth it. Its has put Estonia on our Go To list for future holidays.
Many thanks to Triin, Alexander, our driver whose name I cant remember & the team at Nordic. We had an absolute ball.
PS, loved the coffee, sandwich & apple pie break. It was an unexpected inclusion & that apple pie was to die for!!
Medieval Tallinn Walking Tour
We were two couples on a cruise, and booked a private tour through Estonian Experience for Tallinn and Riga. Both were excellent! In Tallinn, our three-hour walking tour of the upper and lower old city went by in a flash. Britta, our guide, was a delightful young woman with extensive knowledge of the city, its history, folklore, politics and whatnot. She also gave us recommendations for other places to visit outside the old city and directions how to get there. In Riga we were met by Edita for a 5-hour tour of Jewish Riga. Edita was also extremely knowledgeable and as we walked (or drove) she gave us background about the city, the politics, the Jewish connections, which is what interested us. We visited the synagogue in the old city where we were treated to a wonderful monologue by Mishke, the guard/caretaker/custodian. We also visited a memorial site next to a synagogue that was burnt by the Nazis. The final visit was to the memorial to Zanis Lipke, a port worker who saved 60 Jews from the city by digging a bunker under a shed and hiding them there. He is considered a Latvian hero.
All in all, our two tours were excellent and are highly recommended!
