Great cruise....
Mary_R, Aug 2022
Great cruise. Knowledgeable guide. She answered all questions and was able to give us tips about any sou eniors we wanted as well. Great experience
Too much walk and less time for pictures
Elena_A, Aug 2022
The tour was not explain at the beginning the tour guide was not able to explain what to expect to see during the tour nor explain us about the city food or things to do in our free time, her main focus was to tell us about the history of the Estonia but for some One who is spending only one day we want to take remarkable pictures and visit the local main places for life time experience
Cool experience, poorly planned tour.
Alexander_K, Jul 2022
Guide Anastasia was amazing and made the tour good. Taking the boat was not well planned and led to a lot of confusion. Tour in Talinn did not include any admissions just various walks through different shops. Tour left us with 3 hours of free time which was far too much. Boat boarding and activities in Talinn should have been better organized.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Alexander, Thank you for your honest feedback. We understand that you were looking for a cabin in the return ferry or an earlier ship but we could not arrange it. We provide a 3 hour free time in Tallinn for lunch and shopping. We understand that for many travelers it can be too long wait. We are glad to know that you liked Anastasia's guided tour in Tallinn. We usually send all communications to our guests by email using the platform they have booked from. We will try to resolve the problems you faced by being more communicative to our future guests. Thank you once again for your feedback. It helps us improve.
Tallinn, Estonia is a beautiful city with many well preserved buildings with a long complicated history.
StephenCornell_W, Jul 2022
The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting and I enjoyed the tour of the city. Far too many smokers on the long ferry ride to and from Estonia. No smoking signs were everywhere but were ignored.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
We really appreciate your feedback. Thank you so much
Ok-ish with a little cultural glitch
Carlota_A, Jun 2022
The guide, Roman, knew what he was talking about. Had a good grasp of his country's history. However, might need to be a little more sensitive to any cultural references specially, I am Asian, unlike the others in the tour. I was a bit offended on his reference to a motorcycle that we saw on the street "there's a lot of that where you came from?" No, I am not from Vietnam. And "it's not made in Vietnam" referring to a piece of fabric. He obviously cannot tell Asians apart. At this point, I totally shut down from what he was saying and just took photos.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
We understand your feelings during the tour. Our sincere apologies for this unpleasant experience during the tour. Your feedback is extremely important and helpful for us to make sure such incidence do not happen with any of our guests in future. We have taken this as learning for our guides.
Nice break from big city
Edgar_G, Jun 2022
There were just 3 of us in the tour, so it felt intimate, private and personalized. The guide could use a voice magnifier because it was difficult to hear her sometimes.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you for your feedback and suggestion. We usually provide voice magnifier for a group of 10 or more. We would certainly consider your suggestion to provide voice magnifier for a smaller group, as we look forward to continue to serve the best.
Informative and Good for all
Abigail_S, Jun 2022
The Day trip to Tallinn is well planned out, I was picked up from a hotel near mine in the morning and taken to the Ferry terminal for the ride to Tallinn. The ferry services are very easy to use both to and from Tallinn with good food and shopping on board to pass the time. Once in Tallinn we were greeted by our tour guide who was very friendly and had lots of knowledge about the Old Town and Estonia. The walking tour lasted about 3.5 hours at a steady pace and after this we had 3 hours of free time to explore, shop or visit museums in the area before taking a shuttle back to the ferry. Very enjoyable and informative and great for couples or solo travellers as it is a small intimate group of 7 on the tour

Worth it
JAIME_J, Jun 2022
Tallin’s Old City is definitely worth visiting, and a day trip from Helsinki is right in terms of time and comfort. The ferry is quite good. I think the 3 hour guided tour needs to be modified. It should have a break in the middle for people to grab something to eat, go to the bathroom, etc. We didn’t see any public bathrooms in the city, so a break is quite necessary. Our guide was helpful and enthusiastic, but her English was rather poor, so we missed some of her explanations. ,
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you for your feedback. Your suggestion is truly valuable for us, we are considering your suggestion for a break during the trip to give best experience to our guests.
Pleased w/ Helsinki-Tallin tour

Response from Host, Jul 2022

bonnie_s, May 2022
Great day trip to Talliinn, beginning with a pick-up from my hotel to ferry terminal, someone waiting at terminal in Tallinn, a guide named Julia, then a walking tour of the Old Town with free time.

Viator is cheating
Franklin_J, Apr 2022
Its a ferry don’t cheat your customer, I paid 120 eur just thinking its cruise, if its ferry we can book ourselves
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Dear Franklin, We are sorry for your disappointment. We would like to clarify that your trip was a guided tour in Tallinn which also included hotel pick up and cruise tickets to Tallinn. We received a call from Viator that you do not want to take the guided tour in Tallinn. We are very sorry for any misunderstandings on this regard.
Jennifer_T, Mar 2022
I'm so glad I started my day in Tallinn with this tour. My guide Julia was charming, friendly and knowledgeable and it meant I understood what I was looking at and why it was there when I walked around on my own later in the day.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
We are very grateful to hear the wonderful review from you . Thank you very much
Terrific Tallinn
Derek_R, Mar 2022
Smooth digital boarding pass delivery and hotel pickup were precursors to a great trip to Tallinn and tour through the Old Town. The tour guide was fantastic—knowledgeable and professional.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thanks a lot for sharing your valuable feedback . We are glad to know you had a great day trip to Tallinn . Your feedback helps us to continue our services in the best possible way .
Nice, but slightly overpriced
Brittany_S, Feb 2022
Julia was a lovely guide who showed myself and another couple around the old town of Tallinn. For the price paid I would have expected hotel drop off to be included also, especially in terms of safety as a solo traveller arriving back in the dark. Not a lot of communication from the travel company but all in all a nice day.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Thanks a lot for sharing the review . Our feedback is very precious to us and would help us improve our services
Fun but exhausting
Rick_M, Jan 2022
This tour was totally worth it an very interesting, but make sure everyone in your party is in good shape or prepared to sweat. There were so many hills, we did over 10,000 steps in the 3 hour tour and climbed 6 flights of stairs! Totally worth it to see all the amazing architecture but man were we all tired after.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thank you so much ! It’s great to hear you had an amazing experience. Indeed it’s a bit of a walk but a thrilling experience. Thanks for coming !

Great trip from Helsinki, could easily spend more time there.
Adam_R, Dec 2021
My tour guide was very informative and friendly. She did a great job talking about the history of the area as well as some more recent history since she is from there. Very much enjoyed the sunny cold winter day and hope to return.
