Marju Tour Guide

Marju is an overly enthusiastic (in a good way) historian. We typecast - most of our guides are overly enthusiastic historians. She has studied in both Estonia as well as Great Britain.

Marju worked at the Museum of Architecture and as a barista before joining our company. She has also spent some time volunteering in France where she informed people of the good side of the EU - considering how the French elections went, her endeavor was a success.

She loves to travel and every penny saved goes into the world exploration fund - currently she is obsessed with anything Spanish and dreams of mastering her salsa skills and living in Central America.

One of her life goals is adopting a dog (or three). This is hindered by living in a rental flat so she passes time in her dogless rental by reviewing films for a local business newspaper (we also did not know the most popular business newspaper in Estonia also publishes film reviews).

On Marju’’s tours you can expect a lot of interesting stories about Estonian history as you should from a history buff.

The whole family enjoyed the Tallinn-Riga trip with Marju, very professional, excellent driver, lot of culture and knowledge about the history of Estonia and Latvia. Moreover, the blue eyes, the good mood and the smile were always there. Really worth the experience! Definitely recommended!

"Impressive "

Really impressive trip here

"A chance to see another side of Estonia"

I booked for this tour at the last minute and it was a good decision to do so. The natural beauty of the coastal cliffs and learning about Estonia in Soviet times made for an interesting day. Visiting the abandoned Murru prison quarry was a major highlight. Our lunch stop at a small restaurant/cafe was a chance to enjoy the best pastries I have ever eaten. The only reason I have not given five stars is because the tour did not visit the Padise monastery ruins as advertised - I am not sure why. Still, that apart, it was a really good day.

"From Swamp to Sea in the Lahemaa National Park"

Although the weather was not at its best we had a very enjoyable to the Lahemaa National Park and surrounding with Marju. There is a great beauty in the still ponds and lush greens of the peat bog that is an antidote to the hussle and bussle in Tallinn. We also had a walk to the coast, which is very pretty and there are not many seas where swans can be seen. Getting to use the village swing (kiiking) was a nice bonus. Marju is a very informative guide and as well as explaining what we were seing, gave us a lot of insights of what life for Estonians is really like. So if you want to clear your head and breathe in some clean air while enjoying some unusual natural environments I thoroughly recommend this tour!

"A great way go experience some of Estonia's natural beauty"

There is so much more to Estonia than the old town of Tallinn. It was definitely worth my while to take this amazing tour - it was a small group (four of us in total) and we saw the coast on the Gulf of Finland, a small fishing village and an impressive manor house but the big highlight was the walk through Viru Bog - it's on a narrow plank boardwalk but it's quite an easy walk with so much incredible plant life to look at. It's not necessary to be a biologist to appreciate the beauty of Lahemaa National Park. Our guide Marju was very knowledgeable and she gave us all the information we needed without it being an overload.

"Great way to spend a day!"

We had an excellent tour on 6/19/19. Very small group of 4 people plus our guide. Our guide was very informative and personable. Highly recommend if you want to learn about Estonia and see the countryside in a hassle free way.
