Excellent tour, Anastasia our guide was very knowledgeable and took us all over the city of Tallin. It was a nice mix of driving around the area and then walking the old city. There was only one other couple with us which made it like your own private tour. Our cruise port date had changed and the tour company was great in maintaining communication regarding the change and exactly where to meet. Highly recommend this tour.
