Its probably kind of interesting to get some information about buildings , streets etc. The only thing I don't understand why the guide talk so much about so called Soviet occupation and KGB. We have politicians and mass media for all kinds of fake news and misinformation. Its not cool lie to people.

Organization was not their strength. Lots of people trying to find out where and with whom to go, with little direction. Our guide,  Patek, spent two hours with us and then left us to fend on our own and meet up with some other group to return to the boat. Promised a ride around the outskirts of Tallinn that did not happen.   Some information about Tallinn,  better than nothing.

The tour was wonderful, my daughter and I enjoyed a lot. The guide is articulated, funny, and knowledgeable.
We didn’t use the port transfer service at the end , decided to stay longer and wondering around more.
The only suggestion is the direction at the meeting point: it seems the tour is designed for those people from the cruise as excursions programs; so it took us quite awhile to find the correct point, we had to use google map to lead us there.

Otherwise, we highly recommended this tour, you really learn a lot from the 3 hours walking tour.

Our guide, Eve, was excellent. She did a great job of keeping everyone together, being very personable and also very knowledgeable. A very good sense of humor.

Tallinn is a really neat City, and it was also good to gain some insight into how Estonia and its people are doing.

There were a ton of tourists in the City center - that was the only part I didn't like. Tallinn isn't very big, so when the cruise ships descend on it, it feels very full. Still very much worth exploring.

Loved walking with guide ! I wish shuttle bus can come little later to go back to cruise. They had only time to go back 2 pm. But it was not too far to walk to port. Thank you

Tallinn was a highlight of my cruise, mostly because the walking tour was a wonderful experience. Our guide Karen had a wonderful sense of humor and her stories of the old town were fun and interesting. I especially appreciated the cafe stop and the free time included to walk around on our own before heading back to the ship.

Very nice. Our guide was reasonably well informed and very factual.
Perhaps a bit expensive for the value however.

First of all, Tallin is an amazing beautiful city with so much history that I would recommend a tour just to learn about it all! We did a walking tour and our tour guide Stina was incredible. She was so knowledgeable and answered all questions that were inquired. Her English was very good. She even sang the national anthem when asked and has a beautiful voice! We learned so much and we loved it there. It was nice because they give you a tour and then you have an hour or two after to explore on your own. Right outside the old city walls there is a beautiful market of flowers that is so pretty just to admire. I would recommend this tour and Stina to all! Great experience.

This was a sleeper that I didn’t expect. Our local tour guide was excellent. So much history of wars and takeovers.
I applaud the tenacity of the people. Whatever they do works. I was impressed of how progressive they’ve become. Very friendly and accommodating to tourists
