Join us for a contrasting and fun 7-hour tour to coastal cliffs, waterfall, and the many Soviet era sights from an abandoned missile base to Paldiski city. Discover the rich heritage of the area to learn more about Estonia and the local people.

Discover the well hidden secrets of the North-West coast of Estonia. We’ll roam along the steep limestone cliffs that give much of the Northern coast a unique look. You’ll see some beautiful countryside and what is considered by many the most romantic waterfall in Estonia, Keila-Joa.

Amongst the beautiful nature there are many surprising sights left over from Soviet time. You’ll take a look around Paldiski, a city that was closed to public during the Soviet period. We’ll stop at several Soviet military related places like an abandoned missile base and a retired AN-12, a rusting military transport airplane. Discover the one of a kind Murru prison quarry with its alien landscape and half submerged buildings that looks like a forgotten sci-fi movie set.

"An Amazing Day with an Amazing Guide"

We explored the highlights around Tallin with our expert guide, Sten. He was the best guide we have ever had. His logistics were perfect, and we were able to enjoy everything we wanted to see with plenty of time to enjoy all. Sten had encyclopedic knowledge of everything - culture, history, wildlife, geology, military history, and food. We especially liked looking for fossils at the base of the coastal cliffs. He was an excellent and safe driver. We even had time for a nice lunch at a lovely cafe that Sten recommended. Above all we want to thank Sten for going way beyond his duties because he helped us with a first aid urgency (something from the days before and not a result of anything we did on our tour). At the end of our tour, he took us to a medical clinic that he had made many calls to arrange an appointment. The doctor saw us immediately and Sten remained with us until he knew all was going to be OK. The entire day was absolutely beyond our expectations. We wish Sten continued success with his career working with the Railway Baltica extension and hope he continues to provide superb tourist guiding in his extra time.


Sten was a great guide and knew a lot of history by heart about the areas we went to. The sun was also very nice on the day and it was an enjoyable experience away from the city.

"Fun day with Sten!"

It was a fun sunny day with Stan as we explored the countryside . We enjoyed the beautiful coastal cliffs , amazing the Keia Joa Falls and surrounding area . We saw the Rummu quarry and heard a lot of interesting stories and its history of prison tales . We had delicious lunch at a local cafe and the Russian airplane that seems to have been part of Star Wars series. Thanks Sten for a beautiful sunny day !

"Coastal Cliffs Tour"

We had a fabulous time on the Coastal Cliffs Tour, and our guide Kert was extremely knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure.

"Awesome day"

Our guide, Katlin, was super knowledgeable and funny, I had a very pleasant day with her and the group. The tour was also well structured and you get to see lots of beautiful places! Highly recommended!

"An interesting day in Estonia"

Nice landscapes and some post-Soviet abandoned places. The guide tells about the history of Estonia in an interesting way. A good option for people who want to see a piece of Estonia without renting a car. Thanks to Kätlin for the great day!

Meeting Point

The tour starts in front of Tallinn Tourist Info Center (Niguliste street 2) on the corner of Harju and Niguliste street. Our guide will meet you at the marked meeting point.
