Tallinn shore excursion

This Tallinn shore excursion is a fantastic way to discover different neighborhoods with a focus on history and learn about the people who shaped the city. We share with you lots of memorable stories; news about recent developments and current life in Estonia; and anything else you might be interested in, all while exploring Tallinn´s must-see attractions.
We meet you at the cruise harbor and start with a drive (1 hr 45 min) through the surrounding areas- Kadriorg, the Song Festival Grounds, Kalamaja, the modern city center- with several (photo) stops on the way.
