Your tour begins with a scenic drive through the cultural heart of Tallinn. View the Tall Herman Tower, one of the three remaining towers of the Knights of the Sword Castle. From the base of the nearby Cannon Tower, enjoy a wonderful view of the churches and towers of Tallinn's Upper Town. You'll then continue through Kadriorg Park, a true highlight with its charming Baroque ensemble that was designed as a summer residence for Peter the Great. You'll also see the beautiful Swan Pond where a photo stop will be made. Visit the Song Festival Ground, a natural amphitheater that hosts Estonia's national song festivals, and then pass by the historic TV Tower which was guarded by the local people during the August 1990 fight for independence. You'll pass by the Forest Cemetery where distinguished Estonians are buried amongst the pine trees, before continuing on to Pirita, the beachside location of the yachting complex built for the 1980 Olympic Games. From this vantage point, the 16th century ruins of St. Bridget's Convent can be seen. As you return to the harbor, you'll drive past the summer residence of Count Orlov and the delightful statue of Russalka, Estonia's mermaid, on the sea coast.
Note: Participants are not required to disembark the coach at the photo stops. Restrooms are available at selected stops. Guests should wear comfortable walking shoes.

It was an ok tour, about what you expect from a bus tour. The building and history are remarkable and the stadium was inspiring. There was shopping available at the stadium. However, the best shopping was at the pier where ship was docked.
