The Company was very organized and efficient. I received an E-mail right away confirming my booking and meeting point The town was extremely busy because of the arrival of 3-4 cruise ships. We were divided up into groups at the meeting point and proceeded to the Old Town at a good pace. The young lady (Julia) we had as a guided was extremely knowledgeable but had a very gentle voice and not a good flag/banner to be able to follow her in the crowds. At one point(lookout)I almost lost the group and my friend did get left behind -I had to go and get her. Our guide should have given us a meeting point and time before leaving that area. But a good thorough tour of a good 3 hours with steps and some uphill walking. Would highly recommend!

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.

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!
