Firstly thank you so much to our guide from Prangli travel Andreas. A local who was genuinely enthusiastic and proud to take us out of the city to discover the ‘real’ Estonia and a gentler way of life of the beautiful island of Prangli. The day was well organised from start to finish. The little ferry from a tiny quiet port was charming and the trip to the island a pleasure in itself. We were blessed with a fine sunny day too and calm seas. On arrival we transferred to an open top jeep for our island tour. Andreas stopped at many interesting and beautiful places to show us and give us information about. We had lunch at a charming rustic guest house with hearty local food - freshly caught fish, potatoes, cottage cheese with herbs, salad and lovely local bread. All really tasty. After lunch we had time to go for a nice walk before catching the boat back. Andreas kindly dropped us at our hotel afterwards tired but happy. A really good day out, natural, and beautiful countryside.
The tour itself was great. Mikk, our guide for the day, was amazing and very knowledgeable about Prangli Island, so much so that we thought he was a resident. The island itself is amazing and great to have a nice hike (there are 3 hours of free time during the trip). The only thing that could be improved is to let guests know what is being served for lunch as we were served fish which not everyone in the group eats. Apart from that, the tour is very highly recommended.
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.
It was a great way to learn more about Tallinn and Estonia. Our guide Helena was fantastic. it brought us closer to parts of Estonian history and gave many insights into the island of Prangli with a very personal touch. We really enjoyed the day.
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.
