Even now Raekoja Plats is at the heart of the city’s cultural life–it becomes filled with little cafés in the summer, and hosts many a market and festival. Duration: 15 minutes Stop At: Toompea Hill, Lossi Plats, Tallinn Estonia A large part of the Old Town sits on a hill known as Toompea, closely linked to Estonia’s history and legends. Today it is the center of the country’s government and the location of its Parliament (Riigikogu)—it is even referred to as Toompea just as the American president’s administration is sometimes called the White House. But beyond its political significance, Toompea Hill is simply a beautiful place to visit: most of the buildings date from the 18th and 19th century and the elevation makes for breath-taking views of the rest of the city, especially from the specially arranged viewing platforms.

based on 2 reviews

Maria is super nice, attentive and helpful. The tour in her car was perfect for the very cold January day in Tallinn, when walking around is not that enjoyable. We visited places we wouldn’t have seen otherwise, like the former Olympic village and received a lot of interesting information about the history and legends of Tallinn. We also had flexibility with stops for pictures. Overall a very positive experience , thank you Maria!

Very accommodating and informative! We were short an hour because of the ferry, not our Guide! He was very, very good. The city is beautiful, with its contrasts between old, new and futuristic. I’ll be back!

We liked the quick overview of different sites and the nice way Roman narrated the stories and gave the information about each.

Very helpful and knowledgable guide, Tallinn is beautiful!

María was an excellent tour guide- can’t recommend enough!
