Discover both medieval and modern Tallinn on this 3-hour, private tour. By foot and air-conditioned vehicle, explore the city's neighborhoods, from Kadriog with its historic palace, to seaside Pirita, and the medieval Old Town. Enjoy a convenient pickup from your hotel or cruise port and easily customize your tour to suit your own interests.
Begin your private 3-hour tour of Tallinn with a 9am pickup from your city center hotel or the cruise port. Meet your guide and together with your travel companions (maximum eight people) drive through the district of Kadriorg. Stroll through the baroque Kadriorg Park, complete with a grand palace and rose gardens, which was a gift from the Russian Emperor Peter the Great to his wife Catharine.
Drive on to the Pirita district to see the famed Song Festival grounds. Estonians often refer to themselves as a singing nation and their love of song is an important expression of their national identity that has supported Estonians in their fight for independence since the early 1900s. Stop at the specially constructed grounds where the 'Singing Revolution' was born, and where over 25,000 singing voices continue to echo the spirit of this nation every five years in massive song festivals.
Drive to the Old Town and take a walking tour through the medieval streets. Listen as your guide introduces you to the local history and culture of the area, and see the Town Hall Square where you will find Tallinn’s original Gothic Town Hall.
Head next to Toompea Hill to soak up its sweeping city views. Within these fortified walls, discover how centuries of culture and tradition have influenced the lives of the people of Tallinn.
At the end of the tour, your guide leaves you in the city center to have more time for shopping, sightseeing, or lunch independently. If, however, you wish to get back to the hotel or ship straight away, your guide can arrange that too.
