Highlights of Tallinn

Historical Tallinn has a bevy of magnificent landmarks. You'll begin this tour by coach visiting in Old Town, seeing the Stout Margaret Tower, St. Brigit's Monastery, and the Church of the Holy Ghost prior to visiting Alexander Nevsky Orthodox Cathedral and the Parliament building (Castle) in Upper Town. Travelers interested in historical landmarks and unique alcohol tastings will enjoy this tour.

A two mile long wall from the 13th Century is still surrounding Old town of Tallinn. It is listed in UNESCO as the best preserved old town in Northern Europe. Since the 18th century, Tallinn produced and distributed spirits.

Your learned guide will share Tallinn's landmarks. First you'll see Stout Margaret Towers, which are large, round structures that guarded the main entrance of Old Town during the 16th century. Today, you can buy coffee from the cafe to the left of the gate.

Next, you'll visit St. Brigit's Monastery. This 15th-century covenant is special in for its ruins that once housed monks and nuns.

Afterward, board the coach to begin the walking portion of your tour. The old town consists of two parts, the Lower and Upper town. Visit Toompea Castle, the grand structure housing Estonia's Parliament, and the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the largest and most grand Orthodox cathedral in Tallinn. Just down the road is the oldest pharmacy in the world.

Thereafter, enjoy free time to stroll the area before returning to the pier. Reserve this festive outing to see some remarkable sights.

Please Note: The tour ends in central Tallinn, to give you the opportunity 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.

Great Experience. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. We did have one lady with us who had knee problems and could not manage all the uphill walking on the cobble streets. It would be nice to provide golf carts for the disabled.

A fantastic tour of the old town. However, didn’t think the 20 minute drive to the monastery was worth the time. Guide was very informative.
