Meet your professional English-speaking guide outside the Main Port Gate and transfer by bus to the Old Town of Tallinn. Start a relaxed walk in the Old Town of Tallinn, which is divided into the Upper Town and Lower Town. Located only within 5 minute drive from the pier, the Old Town will surely capture your attention with a variety of medieval sights.
As you drive, you will be greeted by Fat Margaret Tower and the Great Coastal Gate, will then drive along the the city wall with defence towers. Once in the Upper Town, you will start your walking tour there.
Merchant houses, St Olaf’s church, one of the oldest functioning pharmacies in the world, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, The Three Sisters Houses, which is today a modern five-star hotel with the medieval charm – everything about the Old Town will mesmerise you and amaze you with it’s perfectly preserved condition, like from a fairy tale. You will stroll through the narrow cobble-stoned lanes to the Dome Church (Virgin Mary Cathedral) and admire the magnificent panoramic views from Toompea Hill.
This tour being not just a historical overview of the days past, you will also learn about life of modern Estonians, see where they walk, shop and enjoy their coffee breaks!
Your guided tour will finish in the center of the Old Town and the guide will specify the pick up place for return ship transfer in 2 hours. You will have 2 hours of free time to continue your exploration independently. Just don’t forget to come back to the meeting point for the transfer to the ship. It’s so easy to lose track of time in this charming medieval place.
If you wish, you can stay in Old Town longer and either walk back to the ship or take a taxi there.
The meeting point is located Outside the cruise harbour gate and your guide is not allowed to walk inside the port. Due to port reconstruction, meeting locations have changed and you have to walk 5-15 minutes from your ship (depending on the pier number) to reach the meeting point of private tour operators.
When you exit the ship, you need to walk past the souvenir shopping area towards city center. Depending on the location of your ship, your ship may dock right next to souvenir shopping or you may need to walk about 200-300 meters (220-330 yards) to reach the souvenir shopping area. Please note that there are some tour buses inside cruise port area but these are operated by cruise ship agents. Independent tour operators have no authorization to enter this secured area. When walking out of the port, you will pass a big hot air balloon and hop-on hop-off buses. Please continue walking towards the gate. There is only 1 gate out of cruise port and this is the place where both tour buses and customers exit the port area. Our guides are waiting for your right outside of cruise port gate. If you cannot locate your guide please go to the Tourist Information Booth and ask them to call the number below so that we would pick you up!
