Full description
Your guide will greet you and pick you up in the morning from your hotel or Helsinki port.  After pick-up, cruise across the Gulf of Finland to Estonia by comfortable ferry. The excursion starts in front of the oldest town hall in Scandinavia and the Baltics. The walk follows the old street grid now enshrined on UNESCO’s heritage list, resembling a visit to an outdoor museum containing rarities.

The sights you will see include storied landmarks such as the Raeapteek apothecary shop, the Great Guild, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Toompea Castle, Neitsitorn tower and many others, along with unforgettable panoramas of the lower town and sea from two observation platforms.
