It was a rainy cold day when we headed to Tallinn from Helsinki. Even the ferry crossing was dark & a bit on the rough side.

What a change when we were greeted at the Tallinn terminal by our guide Alexander.
A bright & bubbly contrast to the weather outside & boy did he know his stuff.
From the get go he was pleasant, accommodating, knowledgeable & absolutely loved his job & his country.
He had a sense of humor too which is always a bonus.
We had a running commentary as we drove through & around town. Alexander not only pointed out the highlights outside the car window but shared some of the complex & at times quirky history of Tallinn & Estonia.
We stopped & walked around parks, palaces & outdoor ampitheatres before even heading to the old town, all the time being educated & entertained by Alexander & our driver.
I couldn’t recommend this day trip enough. Sure it was a long, LONG day but it was so worth it. Its has put Estonia on our Go To list for future holidays.
Many thanks to Triin, Alexander, our driver whose name I cant remember & the team at Nordic. We had an absolute ball.

PS, loved the coffee, sandwich & apple pie break. It was an unexpected inclusion & that apple pie was to die for!!
