Super great offer. I spontaneously booked two days before the trip and the price (29€) for the return trip was unbeatable. The ferry is an experience in itself and super modern and a large adventure playground: from lounges to the sun deck, fast food restaurant and shops, everything is there. The processing via GetYourGuide also went great and the ferry company quickly got in touch with reservation information. The self-check-in also worked great. And the stay of 6.5 hours is just right for a first visit to Tallinn. Great recommendation!

In the activity that I bought, it said that the ferry left at 7:30 am and they recommended arriving half an hour before; I arrived between 7 and 7:05 and when I entered the place where they gave me my ticket to enter the ferry, an announcement over the loudspeaker said that the doors would close in 5 minutes, so I recommend arriving earlier.

This is an amazing trip. Find tram 7 and go directly to terminal 2. Nice crossing with a large ship. Buy buffet. 30 euros on board with everything good from the sea, meat, salad, cheese, dessert and bread. And then there are drinks with beer, wine, water and coffee. Really good value for money. Tallinn is fine for a day visit
