Full description
Meet your local, professional guide at the port right after your ship has docked. You can choose a morning or an afternoon tour. Walk the old town's winding alleyways and pass its ornate doorways and medieval courtyards. Among all the Nordic medieval cities, there’s none nearly as well-preserved as Tallinn. Walk the streets that former kings, queens and czars walked down. Learn how Tallinn once consisted of 2 feuding medieval towns separated by a wall.  Join the cool and young affluent crowd in search of foodie delights and historical settings. With its pastel-colored buildings all pretty in a row, the Tallinn’s Town Hall Square is reminiscent of pages from a children’s fairy tale book. Your informative guide will regale you with stories of past residents and significant landmarks, leading you on a journey not only through the streets of Tallinn, but through the alleyways of time.
