What You Can Expect
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.

Very experienced guide. She gave us a great tour of the city and plenty of recommendations on good places to eat.
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.
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.
An excellent tour once we found the pickup point! The guide was very friendly knowledgeable and we saw both the new and old parts of this beautiful city.
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. :-
Guide was very accommodating. Had rainy weather but found places where we could go in and get dry
The tour guide was excellent. She gave out lots of information, was available if we needed her, and seemed to be genuinely concerned that are tour went well... and it did.
On May 19, This tour was fantastic and our guide was awesome. Very knowledgeable and thoughtful.
We were traveling with my parents 82 and 81 years old, she was very considerate.
Old town of Tallinn was a very pleasant surprise. I have traveled many European countries, but this was very quaint and beautiful.. I strongly recommend this trip.
Our guide was very knowledgeable. And Tallinn was like being in the fairytale
