What a wonderful tour of Tallin!! We booked a 6.5 hour custom private, wheelchair accessible tour for our family of 5 with Saku Travel. Maarja was our tour guide and she met us at the cruise terminal, as we were on a cruise of the Baltic Sea and Tallinn was one of our port stops. Maarja made the whole experience so special and was super nice and sweet. She went out of her way to make the tour very personalized for us, and she was very prepared with photos and knowledge of Tallinn and its history. She made sure to take us to areas that were wheelchair accessible for my 82 year old mother-in-law, and we saw all of the top sites (Old Town, Toompea Hill, Alexander Nevski Cathedral, Kadriorg Park & Palace, Town Hall Square and Pharmacy, and Seaplane Harbor to name a few). Also stopped for an amazing Estonian lunch at Komeet Cafe. Juri was our driver, and he was so friendly as well and helped us all in and out of the van, as well as getting the wheelchair out and ready at all stops. Just top notch customer service all around and a quality tour!! The communication from Maarja before, during and even in follow-ups after the tour, was outstanding and again, very personalized. This tour was a highlight of our travels in the Baltic area, and it was such a great value and experience. Thanks to Maarja and Juri for such an amazing time and it was a joy to spend the day with both of them.

This is a long long long overdue review. Travel was back in May 2019. We did a 6hr private tour with a family of 5 consisting 2 seniors and 2 young kids. A most wonderful & memorable time in Tallinn with our sincere and caring guides Maarja & Jüri. Maarja understands what I am looking for in our tour. Besides covering the must see places, she ensure the tour is not too hectic for my parents and my 2 girls. We visited - Catherine Summer Palace - Kadriorg Park - Song Festival Grounds Drive around typical Estonian housing area - Walk along Old Town A long lunch per my request - Toompea Hill

Thank you very much for the review! It is very much appreciated. It was our pleasure to take your family around Tallinn and we´re glad that you have wonderful memories- nearly three years later! Our business was on hold due to the Covid lockdown period. Now we are back. And we'd love to see you in Estonia again! Kind regards, Maarja & Jüri

Do yourself a favour and book with Maarja Laiapea with Saku Travel. Here are some thoughts: -extremely great value for what we received. We pre-planned exactly what we wanted to do and what we didn't want to do. If you are not sure, they will have a great itinerary -Katherine's summer palace grounds and Old Town were excellent.We really enjoyed a stop where they had old soviet statues -Maarja really made our family feel comfortable and she was very patient with our questions. She was excellent. -the shopping at the cruise port was actually very good with excellent prices. Our family spent the most money at these vendors.

All the great stuff people write is true. It's a perfect and in my mind the only way to see Tallinn on a short time frame. Maarja is super and lots of fun to tour with. The pace for us was perfect and we gained so much more than had we walked around on our own. Don't hesitate; book a tour with Saku and enjoy a stress free tour of this spectacular city.

I won’t rewrite what others have already posted as I totally agree. Maarja and Juri provided a wonderfully interesting tour for us. She included us in deciding what we would like to see. I highly recommend Saku for a personalized and non-group tour. I especially loved hearing the personal stories of growing up in Estonia and life under Soviet rule.
