What people are saying about Tallinn

Very nice museum with interactive features.

My family enjoyed the tour and the museum. We were under the impression that we paid to have a 1.5 hour tour so I was a bit taken back when the guide only gave us a tour of the upper portion of the museum and ended our tour after 45 minutes.

Such a lovely tour we had with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. Everything went smooth and hassle free including timely port transfers. Highly recommended!!
