Itinerary

Drive from the port to Song Festival Ground via Kadriorg Park

Your Cruising Excursions representative will meet you at the port of Tallinn and will then guide you to your air conditioned/heated transport ready to commence your tour.

This tour ensures you get to see all the best sites that this beautiful Estonian destination has to give. The centre gives you a mix of history, religion and culture and has something for everyone. Combining driving and walking makes for the most memorable experiences and ensures you really will experience the beauty of the area. Be sure to take photographs in all the picturesque stops along the way while enjoying the scenery.

Go through the heart of Tallinn and delve into its deep history with your guide. Pass Kadriorg Park, the best place in town for strolling and pondering amongst the ample acreage, patches of green, flowing fountains and pretty little flower beds. You will soon see why Peter the Great founded this beautiful park in honour of his wife Catherine. Enjoy the impressive view of Tallinn and the bay as you travel to the remarkable ruins of St Birgitta Convent dating back to the 15th century. Upon your return you will also see the beach side location of the yachting complex built in 1980 Summer Olympic Regattaalong with Kadriorg Palace and a stop for a photograph at the Russalka Memorial/

After this, you will be taken back into the town centre to experience the upper part of the Old Town. After exiting the vehicle at Tall Hermann Tower look over the Lower Town of Tallinn. Once separated from the Upper Town by gates, its impressive skyline is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Begin ambling through the narrow cobblestone lanes to St Mary's Cathedral located on Toompea Hill, dating back to the 13th century. This impressive building was a burial ground of the rich and titled. The whitewashed walls are decorated with the elaborate coats-of-arms of Estonia's most noble families. From here you will head towards the shopping area to experience the boutiques or you can sit and watch the world go by while enjoying a refreshment (not included).

Meet your vehicle at the end of this wonderful excursion and discuss all the fantastic sites you have seen during your journey back to the port.

If you wish to stay and enjoy the Old Town for a little longer you are more than welcome to! However, you will be required to make your own way back to the port. A taxi from the Old Town to the port takes approximately 10 minutes.

Please Note: This Tour includes a 1 mile (1.6km) walk over uneven ground, cobble stone streets and steps. Also, visits to St Mary's Cathedral not possible on Sunday during regular church services and functions. We do advise to wear comfortable footwear for this excursion. If you have walking difficulties or use a wheelchair this tour will prove difficult for you due to the large cobble stones in the Old Town of Tallinn.
