What To Expect

Meet your guide at the main gates of Tallinn cruise port, around 30 minutes after your cruise arrival time. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, pass landmarks such as the Margaret Tower, the Great Coastal Gate, and the historic city walls on the short drive into Tallinn center.

Hop out to explore the UNESCO-listed Old Town on foot, strolling along the cobbled lanes and admiring the characterful medieval buildings. Along the way, stop to peek into St. Olaf’s church and Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, visit one of the oldest functioning pharmacies in the world, and marvel at the Three Sisters Houses, a cluster of medieval merchant houses that have been transformed into a 5-star hotel.

Continue to the Dome Church (Virgin Mary Cathedral), then take in the views from Toompea Hill, as your guide tells you all about Estonian culture and traditions. After the walking tour, enjoy a short break to grab a coffee or browse the handicrafts stores for unique souvenirs, before jumping back on the bus.

Drive around 15 minutes to Kadriorg Park, where you’ll have a chance to stroll around the palatial gardens and admire the grandiose façade of the Kadriorg Palace, which once belonged to Empress Catherine I.

Continue exploring nearby attractions such as KUMU Art Museum, the Song Festival Grounds, and the Olympic Yacht Center, then enjoy a stop at Pirita beach, where the romantic ruins of St. Bridget’s Convent make for some striking photo opportunities.

Your tour ends with drop-off at the port in time for your cruise departure.

Please note: Some of the churches require donations if you wish to enter (own expense). This tour involves a moderate amount of walking and is not wheelchair accessible. Tours are limited to a group size of 26.

We had an excellent tour of Tallinn -- a beautiful, quaint medieval city. We were met at the cruise port. Our guide, Kristal, was excellent. She provided great detail on the history of the area and took us on a wonderful journey through the cobblestone streets of the city. The driver was very good and we felt completely safe throughout this trip. We highly recommend this tour to everyone.

The tour was very interesting, the tour guide did a great job-- I forgot his name! We saw the upper and lower town, explored a nice open bazaar area for shopping and eating. We had a nice driving tour too. The historic area is very quaint, historic buildings, a nice panorama view over the lower part of the city. We were picked up at the ship promptly and returned on time as well.

Even though we got rained on a bit, the tour was very nice. Tallinn has a unique history that we were appreciative to learn about. Once again our tour guide Sandra was informative and good at her job. Beware though that most of the walking was on cobblestone streets.

Dennis_R, Sep 2017
Stina our guide was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. There were 6 ships in port the day we arrived at Tallinn. However, our walking tour was very personnel and it felt like we were the only ones in Tallinn for the day. We were a group of only 13, 4 of our ship and 11 of another. A Relaxing walk along beautiful streets in lower and upper Tallinn, full of history including walking though 14Century Catherine's Passage . Our group parted at lunch and we continued with 4 to the Presidents residence and office and ST Peters Palace with a delightful afternoon tea.I would highly recommend this tour.
