Helsinki: Tallinn Guided Day Tour with Ferry Crossing

1. Helsinki: Tallinn Guided Day Tour with Ferry Crossing

Cross the Gulf of Finland by ferry and join a guided city tour of Tallinn on a day tour from Helsinki. Step back to medieval times in Old Town, and see past Russian influences in the architecture of Aleksander Nevski Cathedral and Kadriog Park. After an easy 2-hour ferry crossing from Finland to Estonia, you will be met at the port by your guide. Your guided city tour will take in all the major sites of Tallinn, followed by some free time to explore at your own pace. The most popular destination in Tallinn is Old Town, an area which has maintained its medieval character and charm to this day. Stroll the cobblestone streets, walk through ivy-covered Viru Gate and explore the gothic Town Hall. On Toompea Hill discover the perfectly pink Toompea Castle, built in the 13th century, now home to Estonia's parliament. Directly across from the castle is Aleksander Nevski Cathedral. This striking Russian Orthodox-style cathedral with onion bulb domes will certainly capture your attention. For a dose of nature, the beautiful gardens at Kadriog Park beckon visitors to Tallinn. With geometric flower beds, Japanese garden and a lovely swan pond, there is plenty to delight the senses for all ages. At the end of the day you will return to the port for your ferry trip back to Helsinki where your tour ends but memories will remain.

Tallinn: Private Guided Walking Tour of the Medieval City

4. Tallinn: Private Guided Walking Tour of the Medieval City

Welcome to Tallinn! If you want to immerse yourself in the exciting present and the great past of this beautiful medieval Hanseatic city, then I would like to invite you to an individual German-speaking city tour.  You can explore one of the most beautiful and best-preserved late medieval cities in Europe on a 3- to 4-hour German-language walking tour, which is done individually - i.e. only for you as an ordered. You will get to know the fascinating lower town - the former Hanseatic city - with its merchant and patrician houses, the numerous churches, its winding streets and the impressive town hall square. The Domberg - also known as the Upper Town - impresses with its representative administrative and government buildings, parliament and embassies, the Orthodox Nevsky Cathedral and the Evangelical Cathedral Church.  From here, at the end of the tour, you will have unique views of the lower town with its city walls and fortification towers, modern Tallinn, the offshore islands and the surrounding Baltic Sea. During the guided tour you will not only immerse yourself in the history of Tallinn, in which the Germans occupy a special place, but also get information about the current situation of the country and its inhabitants.  Questions are very welcome! In addition, I am happy to give you practical information for a good café or a restaurant away from the tourist crowds, shopping or other "insider tips" - if desired. This tour is suitable for all ages. Breaks can be installed at any time on request. People with physical disabilities are welcome.

Our tour guide Volker gave us a varied, historically sound and culturally instructive tour of beautiful Tallinn on an individually guided city tour. He gave us a very good insight into the city, country and people - and gave us enough time for questions. We recommend. Any time.

Super relaxed tour of Tallinn. Volker responded to us individually and we had a great time. Would do this tour of the city with him again and again. Highly recommended, just great!
