Andres Senior Tour Guide

Andres has studied culture theories and theology thus working at Traveller is no surprise. We take pride in being one of the biggest employers of graduates of those fields in Estonia.

He has spent his years gathering a wide array of experiences. He has been a voluntary social worker in Zambia, worked as a tour guide in a museum, and been a mascot for a Finnish alcohol company. Andres says he has picked every fruit agriculture has to offer, mostly in boiling heat in Australia.

Among weirder activities he is proud of he once cosplayed a monk for two weeks and lived in an old monastery (in October and medieval monasteries don’t have radiators) and he once spent two months during winter living in an apartment with 5C. Strangely he seems to somehow be stuck in cold temperatures a lot.

He buys and sells used books and dreams of one day owning a bookshop. At his free time, Andres likes to spend time with his dog named Neighbour or Naaber in Estonian.

Andres is humorous and loves to talk about personal memories and experiences to sights on the tour, these memories are mostly embarrassing. Indulge him.

Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor

"Excellent — Exceeded Expectations!"

This day trip deserves more attention! We had an amazing time. Our tour guide, Andres, has a wealth of knowledge on all things Estonia (and Lahemaa, of course), and he shared that knowledge in a way that was light, funny and engaging. We had a great time with Andres! Each stop on the trip offers its own beauty and serenity. We loved the bog — during a cold, rainy day, it had an added mystical feel — and thought the hikes through Estonia's famed forests were lovely. Each hour is different, and you cover a lot of ground (including about six or seven miles by foot) throughout. If you're visiting Tallinn, I would highly recommend making time for this.

"Great tour, even in winter"

The tour was so much more fun than just taking a bus from Tallinn to Riga. We had an amazing time with our guide Andres who adapted the tour to the group without us even asking. I would highly recommend the tour and especially this guide!

"One day full of beautiful places :)"

This tour (Tallinn - Riga) was really really nice. So happy that in the end there were enough registrations to go! We've seen a lot of beautiful places in Estonia and Latvia that we couldn't have visited by ourselves by public transportation. It was really convenient, just get on the bus and get going. Our guide Andres was really knowledgeable and friendly, he adjusted the tour to the group (i.e. replacing the military museum by a castle). All the places we beautiful in the snow.

"Great way to get to know Estonia "

Learned so much about the country, the history, the geography, the astonishingly rich nature. Andres was a super guide, so lovely to talk to, and a wonderful source of knowledge and stories. Highly recommend this to anyone who loves nature and wants a perfect day trip outside of Tallinn.

"Winter Madness "

A great tour in the wilderness and a real opportunity to visit the coastal regions of Estonia. Our guide Anders was great and especially at lunchtime where all cafés and restaurants seemed closed. In the end he found a great little café with a delicious menu for only €6 : Top

"Weekend trip "

An excellent trip travelling theough Latvia and Estonia. We thoroughly enjoyed it and our guide Anders was informative friendly but never over-imposing.
