What people are saying about Harju

The visit to the island is quite good, it is worth going and paying to go up to the lighthouse and down to the tunnels and underground batteries. In addition, today there is nothing crowded with tourists, which makes it a somewhat unique experience. However, these guided tours are only in English or Russian, and let's say that they are very chaotic in English, so if you don't master it well, you miss the visit completely. Another thing to improve is that they could explain a little how the day will go, because they hardly tell you anything and you discover "on the way". As far as the food they offer is not bad, but it is not a big deal either. If there is an option without lunch, better bring it.

All good, but little action. We expected more dynamics, drive. We waited an extra hour in the ship on the way back, while other groups waited. The buffet is ideal to combine in time at the same time as swimming backwards. The lighthouse, riding in the military is a plus. "Catacombs and Caves" are just abandoned rooms underground - not impressive.

Absolutely fascinating

The old fortress guntower underground turning mechanism is truly amazing to see, as well the majestic buildings themselves captured in time and overgrown by forest. Really should spend more time there. Lighthouse observation deck provides marvellous views, quite exhausting 207 steps though. Ride with old military vehicle is fun.

Was a little disappointed when there was no subway, train yes, but no subway. Otherwise there is a lot of history to pick up here but the guides need to read a little more. Satisfied with the day in general.

Great day out. A little bit more informative on how the day’s supposed to go and what’s next would of been appreciated but aside from that a great day.
