Drive to Kadriorg Park and see the palace built by Peter the Great for Catherine I. See the iconic Song Festival Grounds and the Soviet-style Olympic Village. Get plenty of time for photo opportunities.

Head to Old town Tallinn to explore its well-persevered medieval architecture. As you approach, the view of the scenic skyline is breathtaking. Enjoy a short break, which is the perfect time to do some souvenir shopping.

Then it is time to enjoy a walking tour of the Old town. Start from Upper Old Town, where the Toompea Castle is located with great views of Lower Old Town. Visit Nevsky Cathedral and unwind with a nice coffee and pastry break before continuing.

After your break, go to Lower Old Town. There you can see the fortified Town wall with its 25 towers, the Town Hall, and one of the oldest pharmacies in the world.

The tour will conclude near Catherines Passage and the Viru Gates, which has a lively pedestrian area where you will have some free time to explore and do some shopping before heading back to the ship.

    Perfect visit with excellent guide on this port that we did on our cruise. The number of guests on tour was perfect. Not too many!

  • 14-Nov-2019

    The tour was very very good. The guide was very knowledgeable and the transport very comfortable. We pick this tour over the Cruise ship tour because in included more and was less cost. It was the first time we used Viator and would not hesitate to book with them again.

    It was good tour program for full day tour. A lot of walking. We enjoy the tour with prof tour guide.

    I can not recommend this tour group enough. Professional, sleek and well managed. However I spent an hour on the phone with them trying to unravel the mess VIATOR (who sold the ticket) created!!! I used all my phone battery and credit trying to sort out the mess of VIATOR made with the WRONG instructions on the ticket we all print out!!!! VIATOR had me follow instructions from disembarking a cruise ship!!!!! I was on the Ferry from Helsinki!!! The tour group said they have asked VIATOR to please CHANGE THE INSTRCUTIONS, but VIATOR refuse!!! WHY!?!?!?!?! THYERE WRONG!!!!!!!!!! Unfair, unprofessional and traumatising. You should be ashamed of yourself VIATOR for putting people through what you did to me. Shame on you and your un-professionalism. Call the tour group and DO NOT TRUST VIATORS INSTRUCTIONS - THEY HAVE BEEN WRONG FOR A LONG TIME!!!!!!

    We did this Shore excursion as we only had a shortish day in town. Our guide was Marianne ( I think that’s correct) and omg she was just the best, a beautiful lady who knew her stuff inside and out. I do believe this tour wouldn’t have been anywhere near as good without her. What a beautiful beautiful place is Old Town Tallinn, the gorgeous buildings, the little cobblestone lanes. This tour was awesome , we never felt rushed, she walked at a great pace and explained everything , answered questions and made sure we had a little time to look around on our own a couple of times in case u wanted to but anything. We had a beautiful break at a cafe a coffee/tea and pastries and I mean great pastries, 2 big ones actually and they were fabulous . I think this is the first time I have used SPB but they were awesome. It was only a small group tour and the others on the tour were also Aussie’s who said they use SPB all the time , they are great . Thank you Marianne for making our day in Tallinn one of the best day trips off the cruise in the Baltic’s region

    We took the tour of Tallin / Estonia tour while on a Princess cruise Friday August 23.
    our tour guide was patient, knowledgeable, on time. Unfortunately I did not keep his name but Im sure you can look it up via res. We used Viator in the past and most likely will use them in every port from now on.

    Our guide Alex was outstanding! Knowledgeable, fun to listen too and our luncheon was at a small intimate cafe with excellent food tastings....wish our stay in Talin. Was a little longer with free time. 10+!

    Very good tour, guide was helpful, knowledgeable and very accommodating! Highly recommended. Wish we spent more time at Kadriorg

    Another phenomenal excursion! Our tour guide, Triin was awesome and she used a lot of her own personal experiences and stories to describe the places we were at. The tour came with an authentic medieval snack coffee / tea and Meat pie and Apple Pie in a great themed restaurant. After visiting the old town, we toured the new part of Tallinn and saw Swan Lake and the Catherine's Palace and Garden. We even went to the Prime minister's house. This excursion was way better and cheaper than what the cruise was offering and I'm so glad we went with this tour company.

    Overall a very good excursion. Lovely little town and very interesting to visit the upper part, with awesome views, and then walk in the lower part. Included a refreshment stop and free time for browsing.
