Tour Guide

Maria is passionate about life and everything in it. Her wide range of hobbies include ballroom dancing, volleyball, improv theater, chemistry and food. With all this in mind she somehow decided that studying mathematics and philosophy in Scotland will be the best fit for her in hope of becoming an intelligent human being. We can hope that at least one of those interests will grant her a job afterwards, right now she is using a mixture of them as a tour guide.

She has worked as a teacher in many different fields - teaching Estonian to Romanians as well as been a volleyball and an improv coach.

When Maria isn't working on one of her thousands of hobbies, she is either doing tours, spending time with her friends or taking a well-earned nap.

Maria is actually a little sad every time a tour ends because she will do everything in her power to get to know the group and their interests, so no tour is the same - this means that by the end of the tour she feels like she is saying good-bye to very good friends.

What people say about Maria:

We had a great time on the Funky Bike Tour of Kalamaja. Our guide Maria was enthusiastic and friendly. She gave us so much information about Estonia, she patiently answered our plethora of questions, and she paced the tour so that it was interesting and active for us parents and our two teen daughters. Our kids loved it! Maria even brought us Estonian candy, sharing it at just the moment when we all needed a sugar hit! The biking was easy and the day, beautiful! We would highly recommend the tour and Maria as a guide!

Lahemaa National Park tour, very relaxing, refreshing and beautiful tour. I joined the tour on 1 June 2016. We visited waterfalls, bogs, forest, seaside and the gorgeous fishing village, Käsmu Captains Village and her little museum. Every time when I was thinking about the salmon lunch we had, my mouth watered. Thanks our guide, Maria, I still remembered the canned Estonia air :D

We did a walking tour of Tallinn with Maria. She was very friendly, and knowledgable about the city giving us detailed explanations to our questions. Also, we booked the tour very last minute and she went out of her way to accommodate us which we really appreciated.

We did the walking tour of Tallinn with Maria in June. She was extremely knowledgeable on the history and made the experience very interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Our guide Maria is very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed our walking tour of Tallinn, it is a great introduction to the city / country and I recommend it. The map and traveller tips were a bonus. Thank you

My husband and I did the 3 hr private walking tour with Maria in May, 2016, and we were so pleased that we had made that choice instead of one of our ship's crowded, and more expensive, group excursions. Maria was so knowledgeable about the history of her country. She spoke excellent English and was able to answer all our questions. She was waiting for us right outside cruise dock gates with a sign with our name on it. Our tour felt more like a visit with a friend and we were sorry when it was time to say goodbye. The 3 hour guided tour was just right for us, as we still had plenty of time to poke around the market and shops after. Excellent tour and excellent value!!
