Heritage Tours (Viitong Reisid OÜ)
Heritage Tours (Viitong Reisid OÜ) has been operating in tourism field since 2006. It was established when the owner and CEO Maarika Naagel (Toomel) stopped her works in Tallinn (the capital of Estonia) in the biggest travel agency of the Baltics - Estravel - and moved to live in countryside, on the island of Saaremaa, back to the roots in Vilsandi National Park.
The name of the trademark Heritage Tours shows clearly the specific interest and expertise on cultural and natural heritage of the area, the island and the country. Starting from collecting and packaging local potential to half-day tours in Vilsandi National Park has turned to more specific week or 10 days long packages focusing on different sides of cultural and natural heritage and using the knowledge of nowadays society.
Working closely with the local community and participating in NGO-s (NGO Meremaa for developing tourism in coastal areas and NGO Loona for developing nature and ecotourism in Vilsandi NP area) has a considerable and sustainable impact on the local community and social life.
Heritage Tours has created several different routes with variable activities during the last 10 years. Main theme of these tours has always been using local heritage and nature in producing new qualities for today’s demanding customer.
Our team has professional skills in providing theme projects according to the needs of our partner(s), in finding suitable local partners to fulfil the needs of different projects and programs.
We have participated in European Union CHIST programs during 2011-17.
