Our tour guide Lauri was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. The old town is very pretty and clean. We stayed after the tour and took a shuttle back to the ship. We could have walked to ship, but it was only 10 Euros for the ride. The town has a large plaza in the center with many interesting venues around there. Read Less

We didn't know much about Tallinn and were pleasantly surprised.
Sail Date: April 2019
We didn't know much about Tallinn and were pleasantly surprised. Lots of history in a country that has been ruled by the Danes, Swedes, Germans, and Russians. If you're looking for wonderful knit products this is the place.

Our tour guide stayed too long in Upper town and talked too long about WW2. So, when we got to Lower tour, we were rushed through it, and by then lots of people had to use the rest room. We asked our tour guide (a woman) where the public restrooms were, and her response was there were none & we'd have to go searching in a restaurant & ask to use their facility. Fortunately, we found one who let us go and who didn't want any coins for it. We were going to stay and eat at a restaurant and take the shuttle back, but changed our minds because the Easy tour was really Moderate. Read Less

It started very early and everything was shut. The tour guide had to give us a 25 minute break almost immediately and everyone had to just hang around. Then we had a brief visit to a church, saw a few more things, then had another 25 minute break, saw a few more things, then the guide left with the people who wanted to go back to the ship. We stayed, had lunch and a walk around, seeing far more than we did with the guide. Could easily have done this more successfully on our own and saved some money. The most interesting thing a bout this tour was the talk on politics etc on the way to town. Again the shuttle back to the port was easy. Read Less

We did 2 tours with Viking. We took the Soviet Flashback optional in the morning..nothing like pickles and vodka shots at 10 am :) We really enjoyed this tour, but there were a lot who were taken aback with some the politics. Be warned that this tour is not for everyone. In the afternoon we too the included walking tour. I know a lot of people have raved about the Tallin included tour but this was our least favourite of the whole cruise. Our tour guide was good but tour was boring and she rambled on and on. We just kept leaving the group and then catching up. Tallin is highly over-rated in my opinion. Maybe we were tired from 2 hectic days in St. Petersburg. Read Less
