Tallinn Sightseeing Tour

Begin your 2.5-hour sightseeing shore excursion of Tallinn with a scenic drive by luxury coach to famous Kadriorg Park, home to Baroque-style Kadriog Palace. After a quick look around with your guide, travel to the seaside district of Pirita and admire beautiful beaches, popular among wind sports enthusiasts, and pass the 600-year-old ruins of Pirtia Convent. Visit the Song Festivals Grounds which has hosted various concerts over the years including Lady Gaga, Madonna, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Micheal Jackson.

Along the way, your knowledgeable guide will offer fun and fascinating facts about Estonian history and contemporary life.

After your 1-hour coach tour, you’ll then take a walking tour through Tallinn Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Starting with a walk through Upper Old Town, built on a cliff, admire several superb views of the red-gabled roofs and spires.

Next, visit Toompea Castle, which houses the Estonia Parliament and the Tall Hermann tower. Continue your tour to Aleksander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallinn’s largest cathedral. Tour inside the grand cathedral, built to commemorate the 13th-century saint, and then head to St Mary's Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in Estonia.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

The tour was great as well as the tour guide. She gave a complete tour and absolutely did not rush us. She was also very friendly and knowledgable. I gave the tour 5 stars due to her but again the meeting place is IMPOSSIBLE to find! Nothing is clearly marked and as it was early in the morning there were not many people around to ask and those who were around were clueless! I don't understand why the tour bus cannot do the pick-up at the ships port entrance?... Please consider changing the pick up point. We ended up calling the tour company and the bus came back from us. It was not a fun way to start the morning.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

We were met right outside the cruise port by our guide and taken to a small van. We spent the first half hour picking up at hotels. As there were no people to pick up we got a private tour. At first I think the guide was a bit miffed, but she warmed up after awhile. A nice bus tour, but the walking tour was the highlight. This town is very beautiful and you can only really see it by foot. The guide showed us some local "color" spots not usually seen by the tours.
