Enter into interesting discussion with your local guide about everyday life and customs of Estonian people and learn about their fascinating history.
Tallinn’s old town, a UNESCO world heritage site, is considered to be the best-preserved medieval town in Northern Europe. Within these fortified walls, centuries old buildings with their red tile roofs, hidden courtyards and winding cobblestone streets exhibit a unique charm that is hard to resist.
Consider your guide to be a local friend who will pace your tour to suit your comfort and interests. Our excursions are not bound by a set agenda and so we encourage you to ask questions to get the most from your discovery experience.
Your introduction to the old town begins with a brief history of Estonia and Tallinn and continues with visits to the most interesting and significant sites of Lower and Upper Old Town, each with their own story to tell.
Admire the picturesque Lower Town, the fortified medieval Town Wall with many towers, the impressive over 600 year old Gothic Town Hall, the Town Hall Square and Town Council Pharmacy, which is the oldest continuously functioning pharmacies in the Europe. The path will bring you to the Upper Town, known as Toompea. Here you can take a look at the elaborately decorated Alexander Nevsky Cathedral – the largest Orthodox church in the city, the Houses of Estonian Parliament and one of the oldest churches in Estonia the Dome Church. Experience the magnificent panoramic views from Toompea Hills over the Lower Town and the rest of the city of Tallinn.
Your interactive journey through Tallinn’s old town is designed to present you with a brief and yet interesting overview of our history, culture and architecture. To give you the complete picture, we not only talk about the buildings but also tell you about the people that lived here in the past and about present day life in Estonia.
Reviews of our tours
We contacted Nordic Experience in the lunch time and got Old Tallinn excursion already in the same day evening. 2 hours of exciting time in medieval Tallinn. Highly recommended.
It was a gripping tour with a competent and amazing storyteller guide. Very well spent 2 hours even for us who live in Tallinn and had visited Old Town many times.
We booked our tour with very short notice, but anyway we got it. The guide, Eva-Maria, was super. Her stories about places what we visited during our tour, were interesting and succulent. Visiting Tallinn I highly recommend Eva-Maria and her company, you will get a memorable experience.
Eve was a really considerate and friendly guide. She had a lot of interesting experiences to share on top of information related to the old town. I felt she was able to convey what it means to be Estonian.
I highly recommend her!
Even though I’m an Estonian, the tour was still very informative and interesting to me. Even with a slightly cold weather the tour was very pleasant and flowing. Tour guide had a really good English, our foreign guests were very pleased as well.
Our group had an extraordinary experience with the services of Estonian Experience. Their entire team is highly professional and friendly. They respond to inquiries promptly (including last minute requests), and their tour options are excellent. Our group’s tour guide, Triin, has an exceptional knowledge of Estonia and her passion for the country is contagious. If you are visiting Estonia, you should definitely utilize Estonian Experience.
Good guide and great service! Nothing to compain about. Can highly recommend this Company to other travellers.
We would like to thank our guide Triin, who exuded professionalism! Our walking tour in the Old Town was exciting, informative and delightful! A great big thank you once again!
This tour company was recommended by our hotel (Savoy Boutique) and we really lucked out in getting Triin as our guide. Her knowledge of the city and Estonia generally, as well as personableness and ability to weave in historical and cultural themes relevant to our individual interests made this the best tour we went on in our two week trip throughout Europe. Hands down. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
A very good tour to expand knowledge of Tallinn and Estonia. Erik, the guide, was easily approachable and gave a lot of information about the past and present. Highly recommend!!
We had a very informative walk with our host. She met at at the right place, at the right time, and gave us a tour of the sights, but also great info on the politics and history of the Estonia nation. For an American, Estonia is not well known or understood, but we felt like we know the people and the culture very well now. The old town is great simply as a sight seeing destination, and the added dimension of our tour made it real.
We had such a great experience. It was the first private tour I’ve ever booked and it was wonderful. Our guide had a masters in Estonian history. He was funny and informative. We had a wonderful day.
Me and my guys desire to thank you for all your support to make our stay in Tallinn an exciting experience !!! The guide, Ulle, has been fantastic and everything has been planned in a very professional way ! Thanks again and take care !
Me and my colleagues had a very interesting 2 hours in Tallinn Old Town together with Eva-Maria. We all live in Tallinn, so we are not tourists. Still, we visited places we had never been before and heard interesting and funny stories.
I appreciate Estonian Experience arranged tours with professional guides who will introduce Estonia in an exciting and special way throughout all their tours. We have received a lot of positive feedback, so we recommend Estonian Experience services to even the most demanding customers.
Canadian Embassy in Tallinn has been a client of Estonian Experience since the company was founded. We were attracted to the high professionalism, flexibility, both in time and content, as well as a wide range of tours in different languages available.
