Dmitry was our guide for the day. He met the 4 of us at Ferry terminal promptly and we began our tour visiting the Jewish section which we greatly enjoyed as he had his contact nicely review the history of the Jewish population in Tallinn and the Synagogue we visited. From there we saw Catherine's Palace, the Folk music amphitheater followed by an excellent overview and tour of the upper and lower town of Tallin. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to travel with. Highly recommend!
