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.

"Fun day of sightseeing while transferring"

It was a nice way to see a bit of the country-side of the two countries while transferring between them. Some fairly interesting sights to visit and a knowledgeable and entertaining guide talking about the history and people. I enjoyed it

"A tour guide who also travels "

Our tour guide was Andres and he was amazing. So great to have a tour guide that actually travels as well - and has lots of insights and empathy for those who are traveling. He was very amusing and made the history come alive. He also was a very safe driver... we had torrential rain on the way and at times visibility was very poor. He was very cautious and I never felt unsafe .

"The best way to travel from Riga to Tallin"

We really enjoyed the tour. Andres was a perfect guide, professional, prepared, brilliant, and attentive. The atmosphere was cosy, the group was very pleasent, and we spent a memorable day!

"Day tour around Tallinn and nearby countryside"

The tour was excellent, as was the guide we had. It was a jam packed tour for a port day (part of a Baltics cruise) so the operator was amenable to customizing the tour and starting as soon as possible, first thing in the morning. The group loved the tour and, including myself, was thoroughly exhausted by the end of the tour. Will come to these guys again when I do an Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania trip!

"In Love with Estonia"

Our guide Andres did a fantastic job of exploring the area around Tallinn as well as providing a detailed tour of the old town. Andres brought out the history, the culture and soul of the Estonians. He shared his perspective of the history of his country. The area outside of Tallinn was as fascinating as the old town. The Festival area, the Memorial and the Maritime Museum were meaningful, important sites. Kudos to him for bringing out the spirit of the country and allowing us to fall in love with the country and the people.

"A fun filled getaway from the city"

As a fully private tour, our guide asked about our preferences so he could tailor it to our interests. Coming from a city full of concrete buildings, the children had a fun time picking wild strawberries and discovering nature, walking on a peninsula out to sea, and exploring old abandoned military bunkers in the forests. Another attraction of the tour was a little park in middle of nowhere with a wooden replica of the Eiffel Tower that swayed in the wind as we climbed up, surrounded by swings, a little house of maze, and several other kiddy attractions. We also visited a lighthouse and climbed to the top where the view was simply exhilarating. Overall, the serene island provided a refreshing break from city buzz.
