Very good and informative city tour through the old town of Tallin

We were a very small group of five people. Due to rain we were picked up at the cruise terminal by bus. The first destinations were reached by bus. The tour was in English, but our city guide explained everything slowly and understandably and was always open to questions. All in all it was a well organized and informative trip to a great city. We can highly recommend this excursion.

Highly recommended!

I can highly recommend this tour. My girls and I had learned a lot about Tallinn and our tour guide Maria was fantastic. We went through all the historical sites, even being allowed inside the Orthodox church to light candles. We appreciate Maria for sharing her knowledge of Tallinn history. Thank you very, very much!

Interesting and very informative tour

Our guide was a lovely lady, who was expecting, who took us around the old city for 3 hours. She was very lovely and patient as we made many photo stops. She had a lot of knowledge about the country and was able to answer our questions. We truly enjoyed the tour.
