EstAdventures is a small, locally owned and operated tour company offering walking tours in English. Each guide works exclusively for EstAdventures and has been selected for their knowledge, passion, enthusiasm and charming personalities. The aim will always be to keep things simple, keep them honest, and keep them fun. We like to think that each client who comes on an EstAdventures tour is a friend visiting Estonia, and we show them around with that mindset. We know Estonia well because we live here. But we can explain it well because we understand what makes it interesting to a foreigner. We have a passion for Estonia, its history, its culture, its natural assets, and its people. This makes us the perfect guides to show you around. Seeing ourselves more as storytellers than historians, we offer a personal touch so that you have fun and get a real insight into Estonia.

About the tour

Our Free Tallinn walking tour is the perfect introduction to Tallinn and Estonia. We have included all of the awesomeness of EstAdventures tours, and are giving them to you for free, seven days a week all through the year.

Join us for a 2-hour English language guided tour of Tallinn’s stunning Old Town. Our free tour covers all of the most important sights in Tallinn and will take you through the fascinating history from medieval times, through the Soviet period and to modern Estonia.

Why is this tour free? We introduced a free tour because we love Tallinn, and we want people on every budget to really get to know our hometown. We want you to fall in love with Tallinn as we have. You can decide how much you think the tour is worth by tipping your guide at the end. And we’re pretty sure after sampling this tour, you’ll want to join some of our other ones.

Our brilliant guides will help unlock the history behind castles, town wall towers and churches (not too many, we promise!) They will also help you get to grips with what Estonia is all about and who we Estonians are.

No pre-booking needed. Just show up with a smile

Great tour!! I did the communism walking tour after this one and really recommend both if you want to know Tallin in one day and in a cheap version. If you only have time for one, then I recommend the 'Tallin in a nutshel'.
