Description

This Tour Includes:
- Round trip transportation from the cruise ship pier
- Kadriorg-Pirita District, remnants of the Russian rule
- Kadriorg Park
- Walking tower of Old Tallinn (2.5 hours)

Tallinn might be the most unknown commodity on your itinerary but we'd be willing to bet this city goes down as your most memorable. The preservation of its roots and history are unparalleled by any other capital in the Baltic and the blend of history with modern developments sets the perfect timeline for following city's development.

Starting in the Kadriorg-Pirtita District you will see the remnants of Estonia's early Russian rule. The highlight of the area is Kadriorg Park which began construction in 1718 by order of the Russian Tsar, Peter I. On foot you will pass the distinct Kadriorg Art Museum and the Mikkeli Museum but the main attraction is the stunning Kadriorg Palace. This Baroque structure is enclosed by well groomed gardens and intricate fountains. It was constructed as a dedication to the Tsar's wife, Catherine.

The climax of your tour will be the guided walk of the Old Town. Cobble-stoned streets, red roofs and medieval style houses cover what is considered the best preserved old town in Northern Europe. With an upper and lower level you will find that every turn could be considered picturesque. A fortified wall with 25 towers and a Town Hall Square serving as the social heart of the city for 7 centuries epitomize the unique appeal of the area.

A 15-20 minute break is built into your Old Town walking tour for a chance to get a small pastry or coffee at a local cafe.

Meeting instructions:
Specific pick up or taxi instructions will appear on your voucher after you purchase your trip.



Special instructions:
- Please note the tour involves a lot of walking and comfortable shoes are strongly recommended. The Old Town is not accessible by vehicle.
- Coffee, tea, or water and a pastry are included in the price during a break in the Lower Old Town.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
