This excursion combines a short walking tour of the highlights of Tallinn that can only be enjoyed on foot, as well as a panoramic tour of the city's major attractions and surrounding area.

You will depart from the pier for the scenic sightseeing drive of the surroundings of Tallinn starting with the beautiful Kadriorg Park (coach traveling by), founded by Peter the Great in honor of his wife Catherine. En route you will also have a photo stop at the Song Festival Ground (photo shop) which is a host to Estonian Song Festivals that are held every five years with up to 30,000 performers singing to a capacity of 300,000 spectators. You'll see the well-preserved 16th-century ruins of St. Bridget's Convent (coach traveling by) as you pass the Olympic Yachting Complex (coach traveling by) located outside the city centre.

A short drive follows to Tallinn's Old Town where you can see ancient walls and tower gates (coach traveling by). Upon arrival at Tall Hermann Tower (stop - exterior visit only), you will disembark the coach for a short walk up Toompea Hill to Palace Square where you can view the baroque Toompea Castle (stop - exterior visit only), now housing the Estonian Parliament. You will visit the beautiful Russian Orthodox Church of St. Alexander Nevsky (inside visit included) containing a number of gold icons and mosaics. A visit will also be made to the famous 13th-century St. Mary's Cathedral (inside visit included) - a home to more than 100 medieval coats of arms. Next you will walk a short distance for a beautiful panoramic view over the Lower Old Town with its towers and steeples rising above the cluster of red-tiled roofs. Return to your coach to drive back to the port.

Note: There are limited shopping opportunities available. Guests may stay in town at the end of the tour (but they would need to inform the tour guide about staying in town and for taking the shuttle bus back to the port they need to buy a one-way ticket). There is approximately 1 mile of walking over cobblestone streets, several up and down inclines with 30 steps. Visitation to the interior of the Dome Church is not possible on Sundays due to regularly scheduled church services and functions and in case of religious events. Visitation to the interior of the Alexander Nevsky and St. Mary's Cathedral will be without guide. Tour order may vary but all mentioned sites will be covered.
