A must do. Guides were so knowledgeable and shown us the highlights in a two hour simple walk. Cobbled streets and stairs were included. Double up by going back over your steps and going inside some of the marvellous buildings

Our guide, Mairi, was excellent and made this two hour walking tour enjoyable and very interesting. It gave us a tremendous insight into life in Estonia as well as a succinct, digestible potted history of a country I knew little about previously. Thoroughly recommended.

I liked the tour but the guide (female, dark hair, special style) was talking a bit fast from time to time and it was a bit hard to keep up with was she was saying then, especially with numbers and years.
