Enjoyable two and a half hours hiking through the History


This is the walking tour in the town which is 800 years old.

In 1997 Tallinn's Old Town was listed in the UNESCO World Heritage list and will show you why.

We'll walk thru the streets of Upper and Lower town and will see the most interesting highlights: churches, monasteries, dwellings of medieval merchants and craftsmen, haunted houses, Estonian parliament and Government, Tallinn castle and many more.

We will do our best not to be in crowd of tourists and to see more than they will.

My old town tour is not only about the dates and history, its about the smells and feelings.

A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent overview of the history of Estonia and Tallinn. His observations of the present too were quite interesting. He did a spot on job of tying the past and present together in a compact 2 hour tour with lots of walking and great sites to see.
