More than a tour, a great experience. Kaupo leads you all the way through the Middle Age and you can forget all your troubles and the century you actually live in and finally enjoy a different charmingTallinn. Informative, funny, interactive, a great way to explore the city with stunning storytelling! 100% recommended!

I'm glad you enjoyed the journey, and I'm very thankful for your positive review! You are always welcome back on the tour! May St Nicholas bless you -Kaupo (Cedric Stimmlich)

After having spent some days in Tallinn we decided to attend a walking tour to get some historical background. Little did we know what would await us... Cedric boosted our Tallinn experience with fun, interactive and interesting stories about the figures and rise of Reval/Tallinn. During the tour he suggested different things what we could further explore or where to find culinary highlights. We had a great time and if you want to know how to disgust and impress the Pope at the same time... go and check out the walking tour ;) You won't regret it.

Thank you greatly, master Gi and lady Eve! It was an absolute pleasure to take you around the old town and tell you the story of Reval. I'm glad you found my style entertaining, and I'm happy I could make Tallinn stand tall tall and proud in your mind's eye. I hope you'll carry my stories with you wherever you go, and that at Christmas time you might feel an especially warm spark of pride in your hearts! :) Thank you for joining up with me, and for leaving behind this beautiful review! May St Nicholas bless you -Cedric

Not just a tour, this is a performance. Kaupo, our tour guy, was informative but also very funny. Highly recommend if you wanna know more about medieval Tallinn. Tour was doable with light stroller, probably wouldnt do it if there is snow (those damn medieval streets :D )

Thank you! I'm glad that my performance outweighed the discomfort caused by moving through cobblestoned streets with a stroller. This is a bigger praise than most people think - I am very flattered. Thank you for coming along and joining in on the storytelling. I'm glad you enjoyed both the humor and the informative bits. Til' we meet again, may St Nicholas bless you and the little one! -Kaupo

Entertaining and informative! Kaupo drew in the audience with some fun participation, and just a general good time! I would recommend any first time visitor to check it out - and if you live here, and have never attended - DO IT! It's worth your time, and a great opportunity to engage with others while learning the medieval history of Tallinn/Reval! I will attend again!

Thank you very kindly! I'm happy I could immerse you guys in an hour and a half worth of storytelling. It's always heartwarming to hear the guests of Tallinn give their two-cents about this experience, but it is something entirely else to be praised by a local. Thank you for joining up and going along with the stories. I hope Tallinn will keep providing pleasant surprises for you, and know that you are always welcome back on the journey! With warm regards -Kaupo

Tales of Reval tour is by far the greatest experience you can have in Tallinn. A complete facilitated program of history, meditation, ice-breakers, acting and improvisation, a little bit of exercise, as well as getting to know your fellow mates and engaging with the local community, not to mention the storytelling framework that works for any age (and any species - a dog was tagging along also). I absolutely enjoyed it and would love to do it again right now! And I had my critical eye with me all along! Our guide, a magician, a being from a different world, a different time, who delivered flawlessly all this wonderful event, is someone who lifts you up, no matter who or how you are in the real world. He is an amazing performer and facilitator. He is someone you want to take home with you, someone you never get tired of. Expectations met? Way beyond! Curious already? Give it a try! I guarantee you'll get a wide open smile for the rest of the day.

Catalina, the smile on my face right now reaches from ear to ear. Thank you so much for this thorough praise. I'm happy you decided to join up with us, and I'm really glad I managed to entertain you while immersing you in the medieval history of the city. Thank you for trusting me and playing along with the stories - you make for a fantastic king. Although perhaps having a loud storyteller at home would at some point get tiresome, I am humbled and very much flattered by your compliment - thank you! I hope the smile on your face stays on, and whenever you walk around in our beautiful city, you remember some of the stories I told you along the way. May St Nicholas bless you! - Kaupo
