SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR CRUISE TOURISTS!

Join us for a tour of Tallinn that does it all! This tour combines a walking tour of the Old Town with a minivan tour of Kadriorg and Kalamaja districts, the two most picturesque areas outside the historic city center. Your guide will personalise the tour to cover your interests at the pace you find comfortable.

We’ll walk through the cobblestoned medieval Old Town to take in the Unesco World Heritage sight and learn about the history of the city. You’ll see the historic town hall, old merchant houses, city wall, Toompea area, beautiful old churches, and the Parliament Buildings (the Toompea palace).

Your competent fun guide will also drive you with a private car or minivan to Kadriorg, Pirita and Kalamaja districts. In Kadriorg we’ll see the Kadriorg Palace commissioned by the Russian tsar Peter the Great and enjoy the beautiful park area around it that also hides the Presidential Palace and the Kumu Art Museum. Pirita is where most of Tallinn goes to the beach to enjoy the sandy seaside, cool Baltic sea, and a stunning view of the city’s panorama. Kalamaja district is an old industrial area of Tallinn that has become a cultural hub of the city where everything new and cool is happening, this is where we find street art and cool designer shops.

Our knowledgeable local guides will make sure you have a fun day. If you would like to try some local food and include a lunch stop or a small coffee break during the tour then let us know. We’ll do our best to take care of different dietary need just be sure to tell your guide.

Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"Best Tour Ever"

Our day with Andres was fantastic. He had a great sense of humor. He loves Tallinn and he made us fall in love too. He gave us such a great history lesson that people from other tours were listening in. We learned about history, culture, current day living....everything we asked he gave a thoughtful and complete explanation, We discovered the New modern Tallinn, the Stalin Era and the old city. We visited the must see tourist spots but also some of Andres favorite hidden gems. The day went so fast and we were sorry to see it end. Andres was one of the best guides we have ever had!!!!

"The best of Tallinn in 5 hrs"

Our guide Kert met us at the cruise terminal. The tour was in a comfortable van which was well air-conditioned. Kert first took us to the Old Town where he gave us a lot of information about its history. We then went to Catherine's Palace, followed by the Song Festival Grounds. We concluded the tour with a brief visit to Pirita beach. A pleasant shore excursion which made us fall in love with Tallinn.

"Could have been better"

The tour was good in some respects, and I’m not sorry we took it, but I have some complaints, and overall it could have been better. We are not fussy, but the condition of the car we rode in was borderline unacceptable. It smelled bad. Our guide was informative and knowledgeable, and did a great job explaining Estonian history and culture, but he didn’t take us along Pikk Street, which is sort of unconscionable. Fortunately I had my guide book with me, and we had time after the tour to return there and see it, but we might have missed it if I hadn’t been paying attention. Two things would have helped. First, if as a tour operator, you know that you are recommended by Rick Steves, then you should be sure to cover all the sights mentioned in his book, unless there is a good reason not to. Second, provide a map and an overview of what we’re going to be doing at the outset. It really helps to get oriented and to have a rough idea of what’s coming next. We did privately-led tours at every stop our cruise ship made, and this was the only one that didn't meet a high standard (especially with respect to the car).

"Excellent Guide!"

Liiine was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining throughout our private 5+hour driving and walking tour. She also was very relatable, which assisted both my husband and I and our teenage daughters’ understanding of the impact of WWII and the Soviet occupation of Estonia. Of course, the medieval history and following centuries was fully covered as well. Other favorite parts of the tour were visiting the local side of Tallin.

"Beautiful Tallinn"

First of all the weather was absolutely beautiful the day of our tour. We met Liine at the cruise port gate. The city is absolutely stunning. This was an exceptional tour highlighting the history of Tallinn and the buildings contributing to that history. I love tours by local people. They are very passionate about their cities. Linne is very knowledgeable when it comes to all the history of Tallinn. We congratulate the people of Tallinn on their Independence. I highly recommend this tour.

"History and Humour"

We were lucky enough to have Kert as our guide for the day. His history knowledge was incredible and was able to introduce us to a glimpse into Estonian and Tallinn from centuries ago to this day. Kert has a wonderful sense of humour and very well travelled himself - so his tour was much more than an ABC of a place and a drive by and wave of key attractions you might often find with tour companies. Well done Kert and thank you.
