Tallinn's medieval Old Town is known around the world for its well-preserved completeness and authentic Hanseatic architecture.

Our guide Thea was very knowledgable and gave us a wonderful history lesson on Estonia. The Soviet influence can still be seen today in the form of the cheaply made apartment complexes that housed the Soviets during their control up until their independence in 1991. Old Town was full of history and wonderful quaint European architecture. However, if you have hip, knee, or back issues the original cobblestones back from the Middle Ages will not be your friend. There is a lot of walking on this tour. Our photos are awesome and the bright sunny day certainly helped. Our lunch was very good, roasted chicken, veggies, good European bread. A market full of hand made items called to us more then dessert, so we had a little time to shop. As with all tours there was little time to purchase gifts - you would think they would want our money!

Tallinn was one of my favorite cities on the cruise. Could easily spend two days there. The country has become more prosperous than the other Baltic countries and given the history, that is almost a miracle.Learning of the history from a knowledgeable guide was a highlight.

Madli was the most superb guide of our entire cruise - took us on a walking tour - her stories were filled with both humour and sadness. The most poignant moment was when she talked about her father being bannished to Siberia when he was only a 3-year old child - followed with a discussion of the peaceful "singing revolution" and her a cappella rendition of their national anthem.

Most reasonable place in the Baltic to shop - purchased some ceramic items in a handicraft shop and some knit goods along the "Sweater Wall"

You can certainly do Tallin on your own but for the minimal additional cost, it's a worthwhile add-on with SPB tours.

We booked the chocolate tour which was interesting in that you could meet this elderly chocolate baker... it was expensive and quite brief but interesting none the less.
