It could have been a very good tour had it not been for the near continuous rain. Tallinn is truely a very pretty and interesting city if only we had the time to enjoy the place. Instead, we had to use the time to avoid the very wet weather. Nevertheless, the tour guide did her best did not short changed us. She gave everything except the sun.

Reviewer: Roshanak Azari
I enjoyed the tour a lot. Our guide met us by the pier. We had a 10 minutes walk to the old city. Julia had good information and spent enough time for explaining each part if the old city which was amazingly intact from 13th century and gave you the impression of a fairy city. The price of tour also was reasonable. I enjoyed a lot.
