The tour starts from the cruise port or from your hotel, where your guide will pick you up and together you will walk to the Tallinn Old Town. Ancient Hanseatic town, Tallinn holds its charm with narrow cobblestone streets, red tile roofs, medieval Gothic style houses and the pride of being called the best-preserved old town in Northern Europe. The tour enables you to take a good look at the picturesque Lower Town, the fortified Town Wall with many towers, the famous Town Hall and one of the oldest continuously functioning pharmacies in the world. Interesting legends mingled with the views at the churches of St. Olav's, St. Nicholas and the Holy Spirit will take you into the right mood of the old times in this city.
In the Upper Town Alexander Nevskij's Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament, Dome Church and magnificent panoramic views from Toompea Hill will be also part of your experience of this romantic medieval wonderland.
Your friendly and well-informed guide can provide you with so much more than just the tour info – feel free to inquire all about the current life, issues and most exciting details about the nowadays life in Estonia. The tour ends in the Old Town area and you can freely continue the exploration on your own and do some shopping, too. Now that you know most of the Old Town – getting back to the ship is fairly easy.

Our guide was incredibly unenthusiastic. I expected her to want to take us to the Upper and Lower Old Town. When I mentioned the Upper she said she hadn't been there in ages. I had a complete list of things to see so we proceeded, but there was no excitement brought to the sites. She did know her history but had to be dragged out.
Lovely walking tour for people who wish to see the best of the Tallinn Old Town in the company of an inspiring local guide. This is a great opportunity for those fond of walking to have a cosy stroll within reasonable time to enjoy the best of the historic city.
