Tallinn Family Shore Excursion
For a fun filled day to remember in a land of mystical courtyards, castle walls and towers.
This tour is tailored for families with children to get the most out of their visit to both our medieval Old Town and the beautiful city outskirts.
This tour is designed to entertain and educate your young explorers with fun filled facts and fascinating stories and legends about Old Tallinn and the surrounding area. Tour activity options and a flexible schedule to suit your preferences make for an experience that both kids and parents will enjoy.
Your guide will take you on a journey from cruise port to the medieval fairy-tale land with winding cobble-stone streets, red tile roofs and ancient towers. Our first stop on Toompea hill offers a magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding lower city which unfolds like a picture book before your eyes. As you stroll along the maze of cobblestone streets, see and hear stories about the amazing buildings and towers that have been standing here for several hundred years.
A special treat for the smallest family members is a visit to the Marzipan museum, where you can model and paint your own marzipan figurine to take home as a souvenir – OR – try your hand at shooting a bow and arrow just like they did in the old days. A bit of free time in the Old Town will allow you to grab a bite to eat and perhaps do some shopping.
The tour continues with a drive to the Kadriorg quarter where idyllic wooden houses are intermingled with stunning baroque architecture. A walk in the surrounding park revealsKadriorg Palace, the summer home of Czar, Peter the Great, the uniquely designedKUMU Art Museum and our Presidential Palace. We will then drive to see the huge acoustic bandshell where every 5 years, Estonian choirs from all over the world gather and continue the tradition of holding massive song festivals. Our final stop before returning to the cruise harbour is the Pirita seaside area, home to the 1980 Olympic sailing events and the famous Pirita beach where many of the locals enjoy swimming in the summer.
