Ghosts & Legends in Old Town tour - Donation based
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. You will be guided by Jonas, Marko, Dominic, Christopher Robert, Kadri or Ricardo. 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.
We are inviting you on a tour to tell you the bizarre, funny, and sometimes scary stories of the medieval old town.
Tallinn’s Old Town is not only one of the best-preserved Hanseatic cities, but its cobbled streets have also seen a lot of interesting, funny & quirky things even locals don’t know!
How many haunted houses do we have in the city? Where do the ghostly monks of Tallinn live? Why did women have to be careful when entering the Dome Cathedral? Or what happened to the man who dared to deceive his wife? All of these questions will get an answer.
You are welcome to join our walk with a guide to hear those funny, scary, exciting & naughty stories and legends that can make you look at Tallinn’s Old Town and its houses in a completely different way.

Please do note that this tour is based on donations - if you participate the tour, the guide expects to get a donation from you afterwards. Sadly this needs to be reminded, as so many walk away without tipping. Please be kind enough to donate if you join the tour! That’s really the only way we could continue doing them.
How much does this tour cost?
Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
