Located only within 5 minute drive from the pier, the Old Town will surely capture your attention with a variety of medieval sights.

As you drive, you will be greeted by Fat Margaret Tower and the Great Coastal Gate, will then drive along the the city wall with defence towers. Once in the Upper Town, you will start your walking tour there.

Merchant houses, St Olaf’s church, one of the oldest functioning pharmacies in the world, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, The Three Sisters Houses, which is today a modern five-star hotel with the medieval charm – everything about the Old Town will mesmerise you and amaze you with it’s perfectly preserved condition, like from a fairy tale. You will stroll through the narrow cobble-stoned lanes to the Dome Church (Virgin Mary Cathedral)  and admire the magnificent panoramic views from Toompea Hill.

This tour being not just a historical overview of the days past, you will also learn about life of modern Estonians, see where they walk, shop and enjoy their coffee breaks!

Your guided tour will finish in the center of the Old Town and the guide will specify the pick up place for return ship transfer in 2 hours. You will have 2 hours of free time to continue your exploration independently. Just don’t forget to come back to the meeting point for the transfer to the ship. It’s so easy to lose track of time in this charming medieval place.

If you wish, you can stay in Old Town longer and either walk back to the ship or take a taxi there.

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.
