About the tour:

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. Don’t miss out on the historic Padise monastery ruins where you can climb the tower for a panoramic view and sneak around the dusty basements.

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.

"Costal Cliffs and Soviet Paldiski"

Great day from start to finish. Our your guide Kert was brilliant. Loads of information given about each place visited. This is an alternative insight into Estonia. Some really unexplored places to visit. Quarry visit was fantastic! Going home to Scotland with great memories.

"Highly insightful and fun!"

Maria was a fabulous guide to take us to Paldiski. She was highly knowledgeable and was very talkative! She made a special call to visit an old prison (going out of her way). Couldn’t ask for a better person to help us explore the Soviet history of the area :)

"Cold but enjoyable"

It was really cool getting away from Tallinn and seeing another part of Estonia. Paldiski is probably the closest thing I'll ever see to Russia. This is another good tour offered by this company.

"Intriguing alternative day trip from Tallinn"

It was exciting for us to get out of the city and see a different aspect of Estonia than just the old town of Tallinn. While I love the old town, it was great to have the opportunity to explore an abandoned monastary, underwater prison and Soviet town of Paldiski. Our guide Marju was full of interesting information and tips and more than willing to answer any questions we had. We stopped at a lot of different attractions but didn't feel rushed at all- it was the right combination of activities and drive time. I definitely reccommend this trip for anyone who wants to get out and see a different side of Estonia!

"Great experience"

I pass a good day with my husband and 3 other Nice person. The guide is very nice person too and she speak a little french, she pass time with all guests and is pleasant. I recommand this trip.

"Off beaten tour out from Tallinn"

Awesome tour where you visit to places not well known by tourists... on 02 Dec, we get to visit the awesome coastal cliffs, the beautiful park with waterfall, the old monastery fort and an abandoned prison quarry... totally awesome! Our guide Mariilou (not sure the spelling) is very helpful and knowledgeable with the locations we visited and it was a nice tour.
