Viewpoints good. Great lunch spot.

Previous day trip to NE national park and bogs also good viewpoints but was a superior experience because of guide, Mick. He projected his voice so all in van could hear his commentary while traveling. Travel time was not informative on this trip as guide was soft spoken and only liked to gather us around at each viewpoint to give historic spiel.
Nice way to spend the day and get out and see more of Estonia

This day trip exceeded all our expectations due to below reasons: 1 our guide was supergood, he spoke very good english, he really knew what he was talking about and he was interested about the history and places where he took us 2 the places were so interested, not any common turist places, but such a places where you don't have possibility to visit easily. They had very interesting history and stories. 3 Lunch was in a nice tavern and food was good. Overall whole trip was very great and interesting and I warmly can recommend it to all.

Great day out exploring Soviet sites and the countryside. My favourite place was the quarry and prison, although the waterfall and manor complex at the start of the day was also top - especially in the snow! Kert was a great, honest and fun guide.

My rating in no way is about the tour company or the tour guide. Both were great. The tour guide was fantastic and was fun. It has to do with the sites themselves. Pakri waterfall was beautiful, but you don't go to the manor house. You see it from across the river as it's privately owned. The coastal cliffs were ok. The quarry is a lake with some abandoned buildings in it. Again, OK. As for the Soviet bases, there really isn't much left to see. A tiny old housing unit that is falling apart, or a hanger that is also falling apart and overgrown with weeds. I can't review the monastery, as I don't think we went there. I don't have any pictures and I take pictures of EVERYTHING. The old airplane was also just ok. So in accordance I rate this trip OK.
