Old Town and Kadriorg Palace Sightseeing Tour with a Private Vehicle

Join the group or meet your private guide at the cruise ship dock to discover Tallinn’s Old Town and the Kadriorg Palace with its park.

Start your tour with a drive to discover surrounding areas for a full sightseeing tour in Tallinn.
Admire Kadriorg Palace designed by Italian architect Niccolo Michetti: The palace and surrounding manicured gardens are a humbling example of Tsarist extravagance.
Visit Kadriorg Palace on your own leisure.
Walk in the Kadriorg Park: the best place in town for relaxed strolling, pigeon feeding and life pondering.
View the Song Festival Grounds to understand an important part of Estonian history. This is the sprawling event venue in Kadriorg holding a special place in Estonians’ hearts as the birthplace of the Singing Revolution.
Explore the eerily beautiful ruins of St. Bridget’s, a medieval convent destroyed in 1577 for a unique and historic experience.
See Pirita Beach: the largest and most popular beach in Tallinn and enjoy magnificent views of Old Town and the busy sea traffic on the Gulf of Finland.
Once finished with Kadriorg part of the tour; jump to your vehicle and head to the old town.

The second part is a walking tour. Tallinn’s appeal is rooted in its rich history. Its UNESCO-protected old town has winding alleyways, ornate doorways, and medieval courtyards.
Walk through the old town which is not all that big and is perfect for exploring galleries and craft workshops, too. With its pastel-colored buildings all pretty in a row, the Town Hall Square is reminiscent of pages from a children’s fairytale book.

Get to know Tallinn’s Lower Town, have a break at one of the best-preserved town hall squares in Europe, walk into an ancient pharmacy. Stop for a photo at the Toompea Hill with stunning views and admire the art at Aleksander Nevsky Cathedral.
Learn in detail about the intriguing details on the grand baroque buildings, crumbling stucco facades, monumental gates, and marble streets. We spend around two hours walking in the old town.

Once finished with the old town; you can choose to walk back to the ship with your guide or stay in the old town at your leisure. Tallinn is only very small; the old town is only 10 minutes walk to the port.
