This was an amazing experience. We left Helsinki at 7.30am and got back at 9.30pm. Spent all day there & it was truly special. Spent most of our time in Old Town of Tallinn. Such a beautiful and unique medieval town with so much to see and do. Never experienced anything like it. An absolute must do!! Tip: If you’re staying for dinner, be sure to stay around Old Town Square and try out Olde Hansa for a medieval dining experience. The candles and staff make this one to remember! Then spend the rest of your evening enjoying the Christmas Markets in Old Town Square. Don’t forget to try some Glogi (Hot wine) too! Can’t recommend enough. P.S The breakfast buffet on the morning leg was sensational!!

Fuss free booking! Do take note that the cruise itself is 2 hours. The page doesn't state it if you book through GetYourGuide, but there is a popular buffet available on the cruise that you can pre-book in advance on their website! We saw a super long queue on both our trips there and back.

A very good crossing, with breakfast included, which gives access to the private lounge at the front of the boat with an incredible view. The food was very good, the choice varied. A real pleasure. I highly recommend.
