She was rude, not friendly at all...
, Aug 2018
She was rude, not friendly at all, very difficult to understand her English and did not make ANY effort to make the tour nicer. We are very disappointed. Beautiful city, terrible guide.
I cannot give this tour anything higher than an average scoring. Our guide tended to repeat herself over and again on the same information. Our bus driver refused to put any air on even though Tallinn was experiencing record setting temperatures. Seeing seven countries on this trip, this was the least insightful tour.
We had a great time with our guide Eve - she was very knowledgeable, gave us a great insight in Tallinn and Estonia's rich history and made the tour come alive with hilarious anecdotes and her very personal take on her city and country. The first half of the tour is a coach tour where you get to see some of the more remote sights, the second half is a walking tour through the beautiful historical old town of Tallinn, - a great combination in my opinion. Eve also recommended some good restaurants for local food. She made our first visit to Estonia very special and we'll definitely be back soon!
I cant give this tour even 1 star. Although we loved the city the tour guide lady was ever rude. Poor quality bus, everyone asked for air which she would not turn on. Just a very bad experience. 3 couples left the tour early to tour by themselves. All our our tours where great. This lady needs to be replaced.
Our Talinn tour was interesting and our guide, Epp, knowledgeable however I gave this tour only 2 stars for the following reasons.
The tour did not match the itinerary. We did not get the option to go to the Kadriog Palace or the opportunity to visit St Mary's Cathedral. Cathedral.
It was difficult to hear the guide over other tour groups and construction noises.
A few other members of our tour group disappeared for 45 minutes during a 10 minute bathroom break. They came back with food and shopping bags while the rest of us waited. I know that the guide could not leave them, but she should have gone afterr them when they did not reappear.
Our guide was excellent and we learned a lot on our first trip to Tallinn. We were the only ones on the tour, so we got to ask a lot of questions. It poured for awhile, but our guide got us under shelter. One thing......she told us to catch a cab back at a hotel. Maybe the hotel gets a cut. Anyway, when it started to hail, we grabbed the nearest cab!
Tallin is a beautiful city with some interesting highlights including the song festival park and some unique churches that hold family crests. We enjoyed seeing all the sights but wished our tour guide would have had more eye contact with the group and been able to tell us about the sights rather than reading off the plaques on the walls.
