How to Book Your City Tour or Baltic Sea Cruise Shore Excursion
If you are interested in one of our Tallinn tours or activities, or our Baltic Sea cruise shore excursions, please send us a booking request or confirm your tour on our website. This can be done very easily via phone, e-mail or the website online booking form.
All you need to tell is which tour(s) you are interested in, the language and group size, pickup place, your name and your contact details.
We respond to all booking requests within 48 hours. If you have not heard from us by that time, please resend your request or call us as e-mails are sometimes blocked by spam filters.
We try to accommodate all requests for changes and, as a general rule, there is no extra fee for changing your booking. If you have made a group booking and some group members fail to show up at the last moment, you are responsible for compensating us for all related extra costs (having a larger vehicle, for example).
Payment options (Bank Transfer, Secured Online Payment link, Transferwise, Paypal )
Cash payments are only available for last minute bookings in Tallinn, Estonia for requests confirmed less then 48 hours before the tour time.
You can pay via bank transfer or through Paypal. For bank transfers we are offering two options – either regular bank transfer or bank transfer through Transferwise, which is a global peer-to-peer money transfer service.
The commission charged by Transferwise on foreign payments is usually 0.5-1% and money is converted at the interbank rate, in contrast to the regular international bank transfers where the transfer and currency exchange costs are in the range of 5%. You can get more information about Transferwise from their website www.transferwise.com and from this article in Forbes.
We do not charge extra for receiving international bank transfers.
If you want to pay for the tour via credit card, you can do so via Paypal. We will send you an electronic Paypal invoice which you can pay online. A 3% processing fee will be added to your tour cost to cover the fees charged by Paypal.
You can cancel up to 7 days before the confirmed tour date, we will refund your tour cost. However if the payment was made by PayPal or Credit Card, 3% transaction fee is not refunded. In case of a bank transfer, the cost of the transfer is kept, if applicable.

Please note, tipping is a very personal matter and the decision to tip and how much to give is entirely yours. However, some general guidelines might be helpful.
Gratuities to the guide and driver are not included in the tour price and are as per the standards about 10-15%. It is a good idea to divide any gratuity between your guide and driver and give it separately to them: 10% to the guide and 5% to the driver.
Please have some cash with you (USD or EUR) for this reason, but it is, of course, always up to you.
