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.

"Doggy Delight"

picked up from hotel on time and taken to the husky 'farm' 45 minutes away. Dogs very friendly and guide introduced us to the art of kick sledding which is fine and good fun. The guy at the farm very good but perhaps it would be better if the lady who is in charge of the liability waivers didn't keep saying how very very difficult it was which made my wife somewhat nervous. its not difficult and great fun but you only get about half an hour actually sledding which as we were a private tour of 2 made it quite expensive for the real experience . the farm also offers the full 8 husky sleds which is what we thought we would get so ask about that too. Also check the snow conditions as you might end up doing the husky hike. Our guide was excellent and spent time showing us the local frozen (almost) waterfall on the way back

"Wonderful, Informative, Fun!"

My husband and I took the Laheema National Park daytrip. The first thing I liked about it was that it was a small group tour. We had six people all together, and the maximum per tour is eight. Our guide, Andreas, was very knowledgeable and personable. We got to see some lovely sights including the national park, manor homes, and the seaside. We ate lunch at the quirky maritime museum: fresh salmon, potatoes, brown bread, and apple cake prepared by the proprietors, who lived in the museum (we also got to meet their adorable dogs). I would recommend this tour to anybody.

"An excellent way to explore a little bit of Estonia"

We took the tour on New Year's Eve with Andres as our guide. He was great & shared loads of interesting details about life in Estonia throughout the day. The lunch was delicious, the board walk was snowy & scenic and there was a lot of variety in this tour. I'd happily recommend it.

"Bog walk"

The tour was great and well-run! Love the beautiful scenery of the forests. Being in a small group also means there's more interaction and flexibility. Thanks Andres!

"A Wonderful Winter Tour from Tallinn to Riga"

I am glad that the tour size is small – 8 passengers. Everyone is seated comfortably in the vehicle. Andres, our driver cum guide, manages the timing well. The tour is in December and shorter day light hour in winter. Sights visitation is conducted in a good pace. We had some time to enjoy at each sights. Our tour starts around 9am. Enroute we visited Viljandi castle ruins, Teemapark Museum, Cesis, Sigulda and finally arrived Riga around 7.30pm. The best is when Andres told us we do have time to visit Sigulda bobsleigh and luge track. We are overjoyed. As we have never seen a bobsleigh before. Overall it is a well conducted tour. I really enjoyed the tour even though it is long hours of travelling. I think it is a great way to travel from Tallinn to Riga with breaks in between for sightseeing. Thanks Andres for a wonderful winter sightseeing experience from Malaysian group of four.

"Hangin with Huskies"

We had a fabulous time on the Husky tour. Our family including 14 and 19 year olds really enjoyed meeting the huskies and getting lots of kisses from them and taking them on a hike. Our wonderful guide and the owners of the farm couldn't have been better hosts. We would highly recommend anyone taking this tour.
