What You Can Expect

Tallinn Shore Excursion: Tallinn Sightseeing Tour by Coach and Foot

Tallinn Sightseeing Tour

Greet your knowledgeable guide at a central Tallinn location after disembarking your cruise ship, and climb aboard your luxurious, air-conditioned coach to commence your tour of the capital. Cruise past the verdant beauty of Kadriorg Park, home to the imperially majestic Kadriog Palace, and venture within the regal residence for a short tour alongside your guide, optional and at an extra cost.
Then, venture to the coastal district of Pirita to admire its gorgeous beaches and the crumbling ruins of the Pirita Convent. See the Song Festivals Grounds and hear of how globally renowned artists have performed there, then disembark your coach after an enriching 1-hour tour.
Stretch your legs during an informative walking tour of Tallinn’s charming Old Town and discover the quaint landmarks that pepper the UNESCO World Heritage-listed enclave. Begin on the cliff top perch of the Upper Old Town and descend past quaint red-gabled roofs and splintering spires to Toompea Castle, a flagrant fortress that houses Estonia’s Parliament and the Tall Hermann tower.
Next, venture within the sacred interior of the Aleksander Nevsky Cathedral, a great example of ecclesiastical elegance that boasts the title of Estonia’s largest. After gazing at the interminable ceilings and prismatic stained glass windows, meander through the narrow cobbled streets of Lower Old Town to see one of Northern Europe’s only Gothic town halls.
Bid your guide and group farewell in the Lower Old Town and make your own way back to your cruise port in time for your ship’s departure.

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. :-
