But also this tour about different Tallinn districts and different people who live here.

You will see Tallinn major beach, architecture of different soviet periods from Stalin to Gorbachov, the "graveyard" of soviet monuments, modern architecture and highrises of downtown, Seaplane harbor, luxury villas, famous Tallinn wooden districts and the places where even locals would't dare to go at night.

A Recent Review of this tour

Sergei did a wonderful job adjusting the tour based on changes in timing and our input on interests. He know Tallin and Estonian history very well, and was able to answer all kinds of curious questions we had. This tour with his commentary was a great view of the old, the Soviet era, and today's modern city.
