Itinerary

View full itinerary

Welcome to Estonia! After arriving at Tallinn Airport, we’ll proceed through immigration and collect our luggage before heading to our hotel in Tallinn for a Solos welcome drink and dinner at a local restaurant.

  • Accommodation 3 * Go Hotel Schnelli
  • MEALS Dinner included

After breakfast we will begin our half-day guided sightseeing tour of Tallinn (walking and bus).

After gaining independence in 1991, Estonia opened its doors to tourism and Tallinn has miraculously managed to preserve its thousand-year old beauty. Our tour takes us through the gorgeous Kadriorg Park, Song Festival Grounds and the seaside district of Pirita, before moving on to the UNESCO – listed Tallinn Old Town. From Toompea and Komandandi Street we cross Toompea Hill, the ancient city centre at the tower of Tall Hermann. From there, we proceed to the Palace of Toompea that houses the Parliament Riigikogu, to Aleksander Nevskij Cathedral and the Dome Church. On our way to the lower town, we can enjoy picture-perfect views over the medieval Old Town from a viewing platform before descending to the lower town. Our tour ends at Town Hall Square, where we will have a Christmas day lunch at a local restaurant. The rest of the day is free for you to explore Tallinn independently.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Tallinn International Airport to your hotel in Tallinn is approximately 20 minutes, depending on the traffic.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover guides, transfer drivers, and hotel staff of minimum £15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.

Included Programme
A half day visit of Tallinn and a full day individual trip to Helsinki is included in your touring package.

Dress Code
Casual daytime wear is recommended. Comfortable shoes are a “must” for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evenings - the emphasis throughout being informality. Please note that winters can be cold in Estonia.

Please note
A reasonable level of fitness/mobility is required. 

Passports and visas
A full 10-year passport is required valid for at least the duration of your stay. Holders of passports with the inscription “British Citizen” or “European Union” do not require a visa. 
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct visa, a valid passport and any other travel documents for your holiday. All information provided relates to British citizens who hold or are entitled to apply for a British passport. For the most up-to-date visa information please visit; Estonia Foreign Advice

If you are not a British citizen and do not hold a British passport, you must make your own enquiries as to the applicable requirements. Alternatively, you can apply for your Visa with our preferred partner the Travel Visa company by selecting the following link; Travel Visa Company.
