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.

An excellent tour a little tricky finding pick up point, but it was great being on a smaller vehicle so that we could see some areas a large bus couldn't manuever.It would have been difficult for some to walk back to the ship, but we had a sunny beautiful day so the walk for us was enjoyable

A little hard to find where to start the tour. Tour desk on ship had to call Port authority to find out for me. However, once I got there (quite a distance from the ship and the cruise port), all was well and the guide very informative and helpful. Had a lovely day and guide gave advice on other things to do, where to eat etc. Also helped that there were only five of us on the tour. Loved Tallinn.

We had a hard time finding our tour group. Appartently 2 different companies run Hop on-Hop off tours. Once we found them, it was fine. If you take this tour, make sure you pay attention to the pick up times. Some buses only come by every hour, not every 15 minutes.

We did have a slight problem locating the tour pickup point at the port, but once aboard we received great treatment and our guide was so knowledgeable about the history and sites visited in the town. A very good way to get an overview of Tallin in a short time.

The tour was very good - covering a reasonable itinerary. We did not realize, however, that we would not have any transportation after the first hour. The 2nd hour was a walking tour. We had a few people who could not do the walking part (which we had anticipated) but we didn't realize they could not wait on the bus during this time and they had to return directly to the ship after the first hour. The tour guide was not very personable and spoke in a bit a monotone but she was knowledgably and informative. It was a good value however and since there wasn't much to see in Tallinn, overall, was good.

Good tour, meet on time. Informative with a good range of sites visited to give an overall view of both the history and current life of Tallin. Dropped off at end of tour in centre of town where we were able to have a meal and shop, with plenty of time to return to the ship via local taxi (7$) {could have walked 25mins,but v.hot} ---IanC

This was a really interesting and great way to see Tallinn if you didn't have much time. (The boats arrive early morning but leave again around 1 or 2 pm. It was interesting seeing not only the town but also the countryside. Some friendly advice though: if you go into the woods to visit the old graveyards, be sure to check yourself for ticks afterwards. A friend of mine picked one up, but didn't notice it for a few days afterwards. We are hopeful that Lyme disease is rare on Gatland Island because at this point there is nothing to do but wait. Really not something you think about when you spend most of your time aboard a ship for this type of holiday. Certainly not the fault of Viator--I suppose its common sense, but hopefully can save a future passenger from a similarly nasty surprise.

We had a bit of a hic-up as we could not find Terminal A and we had docked in Terminal D. However, we decided you would have left for the tour so we decided to head up and explore the old town on our own. We popped into the Information office and they said they might be able to reinstate the tour in the afternoon, and they contacted your office. They were so kind and we met up with them at a hotel and we were taken on our trip by a lovely guide named Jana Sampetova. Our thanks for making our trip to Tallinn a memorable one. We will certainly contact you again on vuture trips.

Once again, we waited outside the port for the bus, which we couldn't locate. Ended up walking about a mile to the hotel where the buses leave and of course we had missed our bus. Luckily, there was another tour at 12:30. So we had time to visit the Old Town, do some shopping and meet our guide. Turns out we had a "private" tour, since we were the only two on the bus! Our guide was good and really insistent on not accepting a tip at the end, but we won out. We like Tallin very much.

The guide was fairly knowledgeable, but, sometimes spoke to fast. That made it hard to understand her.
She seemed to be in a hurry. The van did slow down for some photo opps, but, It was hard to try to get pictures on the walking portion of the tour and keep up!. We ended at the Market Square with a map and directions to get back to the ship. Which was fine - we wanted to shop and eat. BUT, the tour ended at 12:15. I believe it was a 2 1/2 hour tour. Since it began at 10:30, what was the big hurry? What we experienced was very interesting and beautiful.
