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.

Really enjoyed this town and the tour. Only negative was that once left in town after the tour, there were no specific instructions on how to get back to the ship. The tour guide should have had more information on how to get to the ship.

Our guide was a local guy who spent time helping us to really get to know Antonia and the people as well as the sights. We started with the new part, even went to see their equal to our White House. Ended in the historic part with the quaint streets and buildings. Thank you so much for an in depth and fun visit.

Wonderfully clean and picturesque medieval city. Nice tour but be prepared to walk. Just the walk to board the bus outside the terminal was 15 minutes. However, the ship board excursion buses were waiting just outside the ship.
