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

"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.

"Great for teens!"

We were traveling by cruise ship with our 2 teens (ages 14 & 19) and booked the 5 hour car and walking tour. Our guide Chris not only did a great job of showing us the city, but had a sense of humor that kept us laughing throughout the tour. We ended our day with an excellent lunch that he had pre-booked ahead of time. Getting to know a local while seeing the highlights of this beautiful city made our short time in Tallinn special. We all left wishing we could see more.

"Book your cruise shore tour with them"

Our family of 6 wanted a tour where we could walk the old city and also see other sights like the summer palace. In addition, we had special dietary needs. John (getting his Master's in History) was such an amazing host. He met us off the ship and both drove and walked us around. He brought us to a great restaurant for a gluten free lunch. He was so knowledgeable and friendly. Don't hesitate to book your cruise shore tour with them. Much better than what is offered on the ship.

"Tour Guide Martin is fabulous"

Martin met us as scheduled for our 5-hour Tallinn tour. His English is EXCELLENT, with an amazing grasp of American colloquialisms and slang, which he says he picked up from watching TV and movies. His knowledge of the history and politics of the area was extensive, and he was able to explain it in terms easily understood by non-history buffs. Hands down, our group of 4 voted Tallinn the best of our five city/country stops, primarily due to Martin's skills and knowledge, the beautiful surroundings and (of course) the fabulous weather.

"A wonderful 5 hour car and walking tour"

Our family of four had a wonderful 5 hour car and walking tour with Katlin. We were met just outside the cruise gates and then proceeded to do a narrated walking tour of the old town. Next we drove in a brand new vehicle to see other areas just outside of town. Katlin was very knowledgeable and gave us great insight into Estonia and its people.

"Very professional tour company with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff."

In August 2015, we (4 adults) used Tallinn Traveller Tours to organize appx. 7 hr tour of Tallinn with Katlin. We had an excellent time! Tallinn Traveller Tours took the time to organize a private trip and answer countless of emails and questions. The company was able to organize a fantastic tour, according to what we wanted to see and learn about. Katlin was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and full of energy! Although our tour had officially ended, she still took us to one more place (the Song Festival Grounds) because she felt it was important for us to see this historical place. We were so grateful for this! Our tour included a van, which was new and clean. There were water bottles waiting for us in the van. During the tour, we decided not to go to one of the planned museums. The company refunded the money right away without any hassles and without us having to remind them. Overall, Tallinn Traveller Tours is a very professional tour company with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
