My wife and I had a day in Tallinn and it was wonderful. Our guide, Triin Jensen, was full of energy and provided a super understanding of the city. We only had a few hours but Triin found a way to get us to all the best spots and provide a great history of the many sites. We were so fortunate to have Triin as our guide and I would recommend her for any tour of Tallinn.

Description

Your local guide will lead you into a captivating world heritage site with its maze of cobblestone streets and fascinating stories bound to feed your curiosity with endless knowledge. The heart of the city is a lively hub influenced by centuries of tradition and unique Baltic Sea culture as an ancient merchants port.
The itinerary continues with an introduction of historic and modern Tallinn as you stroll on narrow streets following the fortified town wall and lookout towers. The centrally located Town Hall Square, still a vibrant gathering place for many cultural events held throughout the year, is home to the only preserved medieval Gothic Town Hall in the Baltic and Scandinavian region. You will also cast a view on the tallest spire in the world at the time of it’s construction which belongs to St Olav’s church and Tallinn’s only fortress church, Niguliste, founded by German merchants in the 13th century. The upper old town, also known as the Toompea Hill, treats us with even more enchanting views of beautiful coastline and a medieval city straight out of a fairy tale. Highlights along the way include the Estonian Parliament and St. Mary's Cathedral.

Short tour in Tallinn old town
We booked our tour with very short notice, but anyway we got it. The guide, Eva-Maria, was super. Her stories about places what we visited during our tour, were interesting and succulent.
Visiting Tallinn I highly recommend Eva-Maria and her company, you will get a memorable experience.

This was well coordinated in the use of our time to see and get the feel of the history of both the new and old town. Highly recommend this.

Great wheelchair accessible tour
Our private tour guide was Jana and she was very informative on the 4 hour walking tour. She provided the most accessible paths as possible for a power wheelchair. We were able to see both the old and new town along with extra time to shop before boarding the ship.

Informative tour full of local insight
Eve was a really considerate and friendly guide. She had a lot of interesting experiences to share on top of information related to the old town. I felt she was able to convey what it means to be Estonian.

I highly recommend her!
