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

The Communist history of Tallinn can be hard to pick up in the modern city, but this fantastic tour will unlock the fascinating communist past. We explore the scenes which hosted the essential events, and where tales both terrifying and hilarious played out.

This free tour will dish out the history and politics, but will also give you real-life tales from locals about what it was like to live in Communist Tallinn. Some of the stories will shock you, some are so absurd they will make you laugh! Join us on a 2-hour English language guided tour through the Old Town and into the fascinating Kalamaja district, this tour is a must for anyone interested in communist history.

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.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
