Private shore excursions in Tallinn, private and customized tours in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland, Poland, Belarus for individual travelers, small and big groups, travel arrangements. M09620 is an enterprise founded by a sole proprietor Ahti Arak and belongs to him. Ahti Arak graduated at Tartu University in Estonia as a teacher of history.

M09620 is registered in Estonian Commercial Register, No. 10789460, and in the register of tour operators and travel agencies within the Ministry of Economic Affairs, No. RK0202. We commenced our activities in the summer of 2000, offering tour guide services in a small southern Estonian town Viljandi; but given the needs of our visitors, we soon expanded our business to Tallinn.

A bit later, we began to provide our services throughout Estonia. Currently, our service operations include Tallinn (in summer a lot of shore excursions) and rest of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland, Poland, Belarus. We have been to Ukraine, Russian Kaliningrad oblast between Poland and Lithuania and Germany with our visitors as well.

We are working on expanding our activities in the future, and therefore we are looking forward to cooperation with tour operators and travel agencies from other countries. We are interested in discussing any suggestions you may have.

We spent two wonderful weeks in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. We give Ahti a ten in all possible categories. He planned and provided a vacation precisely to our exacting requests. We corresponded for some time before we arrived in the Baltics, so he knew our wishes. I had a special request to see the ... view more birthplace of Czeslaw Milosz, quite out of the way, but he took us there and found many additional interesting places in the area. Ahti was exceptionally knowledgeable, as one would expect a former history teacher to be; he was informative as well as entertaining, a great sense of humor. He kept our expenses down, yet found for us exactly the kind of accommodations--mostly out-of-the-way bed and breakfasts in rural areas--that we requested. Only one was unsatisfactory, through no fault of Ahti's (the woman in Riga had rented our room to someone else), but Ahti immediately found an excellent substitute place for us. The best thing I can say about Ahti is that our trip was so carefully planned that it did not appear planned at all: it was all lighthearted and spontaneous feeling. Last, but not least, Ahti is a good driver. We would give Ahti the highest recommendation.

I took a trip to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia with Ahti and found the trip to be great. I would give him a 10 in everything. I am considering
another trip with him.

Let's make it simple - 10, 10, 10. Ahti was wonderful!! He explained things clearly in English and Russian. I have told my friends and aquaintances - if you go to Tallin, there's only one guy to call: Ahti.

Please make sure that he sees this because we think the world of him.
