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!

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.

Was very impressed that the tour still went on even though I was the only patron. That said, the tour was shorter than I expected and we made an odd detour into a random shoe store towards the end (perhaps to kill time?). Overall, a great overview of Tallinn. Very educational.

We experienced an enjoyable, knowledgable tour of Tallinn .The guide was friendly. The tour was smooth and done at a good pace. We were given information and insight to extend our visit to this city on our own.

Our trip to Tallinn was a great one, not only is it a very quaint city but we were there during the Medieval Festival. Our guide was great and the city is a fun one to learn about the history of Estonia. Very colorful and interesting stories and buildings

Some of the sites outside the City were not worth visiting.
The guide had a rather strong local accent and often could not be easily understood.

Tour was fairly good although the tour guide was not always easy to understand. Not clear that we were responsible for getting back to the ship thus unexpectedly had to take a taxi back.

As usual, the trip with the Van is too fast...and they don't let you out or stop for photos.

It was drizzling on the tour day and I was the only one in the tour van so it was more of like a private tour, we couldn't step out much during the city tour due to the rain. The tour operator was kind enough to go ahead with just me. Both the van driver and guide were very kind. Later, when we reached the old town, tour guide took me around the old town explaining me about the old history (which I was not very interested to know, given the limited 2-3 I had), I was more interested to "see" the buildings and monuments. All in all, if you are going to Tallinn just for a day and have limited time then I would recommend that you take the tour. It costed my 20 euros.

We were somewhat disappointed in this tour. But we'd describe it as "pretty good value" for money.

Unfortunately, when we called to reconfirm it, we were NOT advised that the bus would pick us up at the cruise terminal, so we first incurred an expensive cab ride over to the Hotel Viru, which the tour operator identified as our ONLY option for a pick-up point. When we got on the bus, we were upset to see passengers from our ship, who told us they were picked up at the port.

The guide was extremely knowledgeable, but spoke English very rapidly and with a very, very thick Dutch accent, so we couldn't make out much of what she was saying. She talked so quickly and so much that, though I attempted 6 times to ask a question about one of the sites we were visiting, I couldn't get a word in edgewise.

The bus tour covered the parts surrounding the old city and was interesting. The coach was modern and clean and the driving was good.

The walking part of the tour involved more of the guide's rapid-fire, nonstop commentary, so we (and several other guests) left before it was over. But the part we stayed for visited several interesting sites and offered some good photo opps.

I think this particular tour guide could provide a much better experience if she was encouraged by the company to speak more slowly and provide pauses for guests to ask questions.

It was really boring, the guide was talking alot with some tourists in the group about diffrernt things not related to the tour and we were standing there for long time. My husband was tired from the tour and we really waste our time then we left the tour disapointed
We dont recommend this tour

This was probably the worst tour I have ever been on! The guide was almost hostile to any questions asked and she frankly was boring-simply going through a narrative. Only go on an old town tour-the rest of Tallin is
depressing at best
