What to expect

Your Tallinn city tour shore excursion lets you see as many city sights as possible within walking distance of the Old Town plus two hours of leisure time.

On your way to the Old Town, you will see the famous Fat Margaret Tower, Great Coastal Gate and the city's defensive walls. The sea port is a five-minute drive from the Old Town which is divided into the Lower Town ('All-Iinn') and Upper Town ('Toompea') where you will take a walking tour of the latter.

Your guide will provide an historical overview of the city accompanied by some details about Estonian lifestyle, customs and traditions. Sites you'll see include:

  • The 13th-century St Olaf's Church, the highest medieval structure in Tallinn
  • Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (orthodox cathedral);
  • The Three Sisters Houses,or three merchant homes, the first record of which dates back 1362. Nowadays this five-star hotel attracts visitors from all over the world
  • One of the world's oldest functioning pharmacies
  • Several merchant houses which leave an overwhelming impression on Tallinn guests, as they appear to be out of a fairy tale
  • Scenic views from Toompea Hill where you will see Virgin Mary's Cathedral

At the end of your tour get ready to relax and enjoy free time in the city. You can take pictures, have a stroll, drop in a souvenir shop/cafe/restaurant before being picked up to return to the ship at the designated time.
