Hidden Tallinn Tours

Join me on an alternative tour of Tallinn and let me show you a side of the city that very few travellers get to see.

James (UK 🇬🇧)

“I’ve been fortunate enough to go on several trips around Tallinn and Estonia with Tom, and it’s left me with things I’ll never forget and a perspective on that place and culture which few travellers will ever have.”

Anna (USA 🇺🇸)

“I absolutely recommend Hidden Tallinn walking tours to anyone who would like an intimate introduction with Tallinn. Thank you, Tom, for showing us the magic of your city!”

Andrew (UK 🇬🇧)

“Tom’s knowledge and passion for Tallinn is amazing and he’s a really friendly guy. His tour around old town was the highlight of my trip around the Baltics last year. I enjoyed my first visit so much that I’ve been back twice and each time Tom’s shown me a different part of the city.”

Molly (USA 🇺🇸)

“For my first trip to Tallinn, my travel group and I did several walking tours with Tom, and he was an amazingly engaging and knowledgable guide... His love of Estonia and passion for history really shine through and make the experience memorable.
