  • Very interesting city, informative and knowledgable tour guide.

  • The whole experience was diminished by the massive crowds. There were 4 ships in port all in the same place at the same time. In my opinion it wasn't even worth the stop, The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. But on a positive note it was worth the money spent.

  • A walking tour is a great way to see Tallinn. We enjoyed the small group and would highly recommend this tour. Unfortunately for us, it started raining in the middle of the tour and we had to buy ponchos from a street vendor. Our guide was helpful and showed us where we could get cash at an ATM. She also found a cab to take us back to our ship. We were disappointed that we didn't have to opportunity to explore Tallinn for a few more hours.

  • Our walking tour of Tallin was very good. Our guide was very informative about the history of Estonia.

  • Excellent Tour. Our guide Vadim very knowledgeable

  • Could have done the tour by ourselves. A short bus ride to the center of old town then followed the guide walking through town with very little significant information. Then was left at a location with very little info of your actual whereabouts. A simple reading and study of the town map could have done the job.

  • We had an excellent tour guide...Sandra. She was well versed in the history and was prepared to engage with the group and answer many tricky questions. We particularly liked her approach to adhering to time standards. A couple of our group were a little late early in the tour and following a pleasant rebuke all went well from there on. There were only 12 people on our tour compared with 30 on the cruise tours a much better way of seeing the sights.

  • A Heritage Village, very nice but walking is difficult. Amazing place.
