If you're thinking of doing a cruise or private tour company excursion of old town Tallinn, save yourself the money. This town is so easy to do yourself. The cruise ships berth very close to town (1/2 mile or so to the entrance gate at Fat Margaret tower). The old town is small and easily explored on your own. An excursion might give you a few facts and figures, but you can get that info on your own, and you'd probably forget it shortly anyway. An excursion might also give you an hour or two to explore on your own, but you're still on their schedule - you don't have to worry about a tour schedule when you're on your own. Just see everything at your own pace and walk back to the ship when you're ready. The Tallinn tourist office will send you a free map ahead of time. To help with suggestions for walking around I used a combination of the Rick Steves walking tour and a walking map from an individual who posted travel information on the web (brentjes.com).
