Cannot say enough about our guide, Eric. I think his name was. He was so interesting and informative about Estonia. Small group bus and walking tour. Incredible history to this small nation invaded numerous times. 5 hours went quickly. A little more free time in the main square would have been appreciated but it was crazy as there was a marathon going on and the roads were blocked off and we had to take alternate routes which may have hampered the time available. Really recommend this tour if you want to learn about the port of call. Read Less

There were not a lot of options in Tallin. We both love beer, so this seemed like the thing to do. We were not disappointed. There is a tour of the brewery followed by beer tastings (I think there were 5 different types of beer). Now, when I say beer I don't mean you get a shot glass. They put the beer in containers like those you see in the lobby of a nice hotel that has flavored water in it, and you take what you want. You also get a small dish of hors d'oeuvres to eat. It happened that the day we were there there was a kind of flea market in town, and I bought some lovely earrings there. Read Less

Great place to visit. Had no idea the Estonians didn't care for the Russians the way they do. As I recall, great chocolate, coffee, and pastries as you walk through a quaint and very old city.

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
