This tour through Get Your Guide was excellent. The ferry tickets and directions were all well organised and communicated in advance. Our guide picked us up from Tallinn ferry terminal and drove us around the city to include sites that weren't within walkable distance, then we parked and explored the city on foot. She was super knowledgeable, friendly and gave us great pointers about best places to see, eat and shop in our free time. Awesome day trip if you have a free day in Helsinki.

Everything went according to plan and there were no problems whatsoever. My activity consisted of a ferry booking, so there was no contact with named individuals. We presented our pre-printed tickets, walked on board, found our seats and enjoyed the trip.

The boat left on time, sailing time as indicated. Checking in was quick and easy by purchasing tickets in advance. Neat terminals and beautiful boat with luxurious seats. Would recommend the boat and trip to Tallinn to anyone.

Our return day trip to Tallinn was very smooth. Tallinn was surprisingly beautiful. So, if you are coming to Finland for a visit be sure to get a return day trip to Tallinn, it's worth to visit

the whole trip was a really good event, I can only recommend it - Leif, Patrik and his group of girls from Perpignon took care of us perfectly
