Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at the SECURITY GATE of the cruise ship terminal.
According to current rules, I am not allowed to enter the port territory, so I will not meet you at the pier. You will need to walk for 300 meters to the security gate of the port. This is the only exit to the city, so you cannot miss it. All people walking to the city on foot will be walking this way. I will be standing behind the gate with the bus and the sign with your name on it.

End location: Town Hall square. If you are willing to return to the ship right after the tour, I will guide you there

Duration: 4 hours


We will take a private vehicle and also do some walking.

A Recent Review of this tour

Dmitry provided us with a detailed history of his country and politics so we could gain an understanding of Estonia and its peoples. His driving and walking tour gave us an overview of Tallinn, both old and new. He was responsive to our request to see the types of available housing and understand Estonia's minorities. We would definitely recommend Dmitry for a private tour.
