Itinerary

Day 1: We start with Helsinki:

Finland’s largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.

The city is strongly influenced by its geography, and understandably so. Not only is it located on a peninsula, but it spans over 300 islands.

Its close proximity to both eastern and western major cities has also played a strong part in the capital’s history, cityscape, and culture. Much of the activity here centers around the Baltic Sea, with tourists and locals alike enjoying boat trips, fishing, and simply watching the activity of the bustling harbor.

In addition to its relationship with the water, Helsinki is famed for its architectural offerings, which include fine examples of Modernism, Functionalism, and Art Nouveau.

Helsinki walking tour is an efficient introduction with a local guide to discover the highlights of the city.

Walking through the city you’ll get a closer look at Helsinki. Century of interaction between East and West obviously has given a specific character to the city, highlighting its uniqueness and charm among the other cities of the Baltic Sea region.

Walk through the green Esplanade Park between luxury houses and cafés in neo renaissance style and get to know Helsinki in a small group or privately.

After lunch, we take you to your ferry and ( luggage is organised ) you head to Tallinn.

Day 2: Tallinn is your base for the night and the next day.  

Tallinn’s appeal is rooted in its rich history. Its UNESCO-protected old town has winding alleyways, ornate doorways and medieval courtyards. Among Nordic medieval cities, there’s none nearly as well-preserved as Tallinn, nor more dense with restaurants, cafés, and surprises.

Kings, queens and czars have walked the streets of the charming two-tiered city.

Tallinn once consisted of two feuding medieval towns separated by a wall. The upper town—on the hill, called Toompea—was the seat of government ruling Estonia. The lower town was an autonomous Hanseatic trading center filled with German, Danish, and Swedish merchants who hired Estonians to do the hardwork!

Join the cool and young affluent crowd in search of foodie delights and historical settings. The old town is not all that big and is perfect for for exploring galleries and craft workshops,too.

With its pastel-colored buildings all pretty in a row, the Town Hall Square is reminiscent of pages from a children’s fairytale book.

From fabric makers to ceramics stores, paintings and artwork to jewelery artisans, if there’s an art that can be perfected with the hands, there’s almost certainly a workshop for it in the old town of Tallinn.

Walking tours around Tallinn Old Town are the perfect way to explore at a leisurely pace. You won’t want to miss the intriguing details on the grand baroque buildings, crumbling stucco facades, monumental gates and marble streets.

Your informative walking tour guide will regale you with stories of past residents and significant landmarks, leading you on a journey not only through the streets of Tallinn, but through the alleyways of time.

Services end at the end of tour in Tallinn.

Join our Helsinki + Tallinn 2 Day tour to get acquainted with these Baltic cities in an efficient way organized professionally and led by a local guide.

You can choose to go private or join a small group of max 8 so the experience is always intimate.
