Craft Brewery and City Tour

Spend the day seeing the main highlights of the medieval part of Tallinn, Estonia's capital on the Baltic Sea and the country's cultural hub.

You will visit the famed Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, a large Russian Orthodox church dominating the landscape at the top of Toompea Hill. Completed in 1900, this mixed historical style structure contains a powerful ensemble of 11 church bells within its towers.

Down the hill you will find Toompea Castle, home to the Estonian Parliament. This Baroque-style facade building was constructed on the remnants of a 13th-century fortress and sports an eclectic mix of styles thanks to each ruler who left their impressions on the place throughout the centuries.

Also view St. Mary's Cathedral, commonly referred to as the Dome Church. In its original form, the 11th-century church was fashioned out of wood, then replaced with stone over centuries of conquests, fires, and more. While exploring Tallinn you will make your way through a retro Soviet-style residential district and see Kadriorg Park and the Song and Dance festival grounds.

From there you will head into the Estonian countryside and pass by Jagala, the biggest waterfall in Estonia. At over 50 meters in width and 8 meters in height, this natural waterfall is only thirty minutes away from Tallinn and is not to be missed as part of your true immersive experience of Estonia.

Stop at a small brewery where you will sample 5 different kinds of beers and ciders as well as 3 kinds of delicious local farm cheese.

Book this popular brewery tour now and get ready to enjoy a cultural and palatable taste of Estonia and the unique town of Tallinn.

Please Note: The tour ends in central Tallinn, to allow you to explore or shop at your leisure after the tour. It is about a 15-minute walk, or a 5-minute taxi ride (not included, approximately 15 EUR), from the cruise pier.

Tour was good our Guide did her best, weather condition was not of the best, The last part at the Brewery to return to the Ship was a little difficult due to the wait on the Taxi, That part of the Tour need some improvement,

We loved our time in Estonia. It was a charming medieval city - almost like out of a movie or theme park. The guide on this tour was very knowledgeable and the great thing is it was with a small group of people which made it more personal. We did quite a bit of walking through the city and at the end visited a small and cozy pub where we were able to taste different local craft beers. Definitely recommend this tour!

The actual tour was great, got to see alot. However, the timing; 5 hour tour, didn't fit into the time we were in port. We docked at 8am, tour started at 10am. back on board ship at 3:30pm. We suggest starting tour at 8-9am, to give time to tour and enjoy the beer! Only gave us 30 minutes at the brewery, just made it back to ship at 3:20pm.

On this tour, we were met by a gentleman who spoke perfect English. Since we were the only people on the tour, he took us around to the various sites via his private vehicle. He first took us to a small park with statues from Communist leaders of the former USSR. Next we drove out into the country to see a round building, which was constructed several centuries ago. The building housed the toll road collector. In the building, there were pleasant elderly ladies serving coffee, Danish and coffee liquers, which were available for purchase. They were also recounting the history of the building. We were then taken to a craft brewery to sample several local brews. We were also provided with a basket of cheese and crackers. Our final stop was a walking tour of the Old Town of Tallinn.
