Tallinn Sightseeing Tour

Begin your 2.5-hour sightseeing tour 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.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Loved it...I would recommend doing the 3pm tour as all the people on the cruise ships have left by then..our tour had only 5 people and the tour guide was born in Tallinn so we got some great information from her about Tallinn new and Old from a personal note not just a guide book..

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

This was a very good way to get to know the city and the most important places of interest. The guide was very kind and open to questions and also, every time we would ask to stop to get souvenirs or even snacks, she was very kind and would wait.
The idea of having a part by coach and he other by foot is excellent because you get to see places that are very far away from the old town and then, get to know all the small ad interesting alleys. fully recommended!!! :-

Took several Viator tours, but this one was the best. Wonderful city. We had only 4 in our group and it was pretty much a private tour. Guide easy to understand and knew the sights and history.

The guide met us right on the pier as we disembarked from the cruise ship. She was excellent! Experienced and willing to share her knowledge and experience. We especially loved the combo drive in the van tour and the walking tour. We were able to see a lot in the short time we had. Money well spent!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

The bus ride gave us a nice sense of the greater city and walking tour gave a good sense of the old town. We enjoyed the trip very much.
