For children, our Old Town resembles a medieval fairy-tale land with winding cobble-stone streets, red tile roofs, mystical courtyards, castle walls and towers. This tour is designed to entertain and educate your young explorers with fun filled facts and fascinating stories about Old Tallinn.
Your family will explore the centrally located Town Hall Square, home to the only preserved medieval town hall in the northern Europe. Here you will also find one of the oldest continuously functioning pharmacies in the world. Visit the 14th century town wall, where you can ascend the watchtower and walk along the ancient guard terrace.
On Toompea Hill, where 700 years ago the first stronghold was established, lies Toompea Castle (now home to our national parlament), our famous Tall Hermann tower and the beautiful Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the lower old town and the surrounding city and see if you can find some of the places that you visited in the lower town.
A special treat for the smallest family members is a visit to the Marzipan gallery, where everyone can model and paint ones own marzipan figurine, a sweet souvenir of Tallinn. For a fun filled day to remember, bring your family to see the treasures that our medieval fairy-tale town has to offer.

Reviews of our tours
I have just completed a tour of Tallin old town,what a great day we had..our guide was great very informative and easy to spend the day with and we kept to a good pace seeing everything there was to do…the marzipan class was a lot of fun as well…this was my second time to Tallin and now I can say I know the city…this is a must do for any visit to Tallin
Eva Marie was very knowledgeable about Tallinn and I would recommend her highly.
We decided to start our Estonian visit with a 3 hour tour with Marzipan modelling/painting and it was fantastic! Our guide, Triin, met us at our hotel and was there in the foyer when we came down. It was 3 of us, our 6 year old daughter included. We were absolutely impressed with Triin – her enthusiasm and knowledge, and love for her country and its stories and history, were infectious. Not only was she knowledgeable, but she was entertaining too. A lot of the stories she told us have stayed with us even a month after our visit – already recalled to family and friends multiple times. We cannot speak highly enough of her, and she should be commended! She was also so patient with us with our daughter, who began to tire of the tour about half way. We saw a lot of Tallinn in the 3 hours, and we even revisited some parts later during our stay. It remains one of our favourite experiences in our month long trip around Europe.
Our second tour, also fantastic, was a private tour to the nearby Viking Village. A booster seat was provided, and the car was comfortable for the 30min drive. The driver was lovely, and introduced us to the guide on arrival. The village was spectacular, snow covered as it was, and I swear the meal we had afterwards was one of the best we had in Europe – it was so hearty and delicious. The Village guide was also fantastic, and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour, also one of our highlights, and suitable for children.
