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.

Very knowledgeable tour guide and very professional. It happened that I was the only one on the tour that afternoon and yet she did everything professional. Attention to detail. Very nice walking tour of Upper and Lower Old Town Tallinn. i would recommend this tour to everybody.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We did not know anything about Tallin so this was very interesting. The Music Grounds while some might think boring were very important in keeping the city's culture alive during a very violent time in history.

We both greatly enjoyed the excursion around Tallinn, and the insights provided by our guide, Erik. He was very knowledgeable, easy to hear, and he was adept at walking backwards on the cobblestones of the Old Town while narrating. :-

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.
