Your guide will pick you up from the cruise port or the lobby of your hotel by private car/bus and take you to the Upper Old Town to see St. Olav's Church, Alexander Nevski Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament and magnificent panoramic views from Toompea Hill.
The old city with its romantic cobblestone streets, charming red roofs, and ancient looking but well-tended homes is considered the best-preserved old town in Northern Europe. The Lower Town with its daily hustle - bustle resembles the times of old with people still rushing around and merchants trying to offer you the best piece of their goods. Your tour guide will give you the best advice for the most authentic souvenirs. There is also some time reserved for a shopping break in the wonderful Masters Courtyard where you can enjoy the wares of local artisans.
The best landmarks of the Old Town walk include the fortified Town Wall with its many towers, the Town Hall, and one of the oldest continuously functioningpharmacies in the world. Our friendly and well-informed guide will provide you with much more than just the tour information. Feel free to inquire about life in the 21st century here in Estonia, a certain contrast to its "old world" landmarks.
