Saw this unusual train going near the market square area with several passengers on board. Very colourful and easy to spot. Adds to the great atmosphere in this amazing city.

With 2 kids who love trains we decided to give this a go... in the end it was just an expensive bum-breaking trip through the old city.There was no commentary or even music. Think twice!

We were on a cruise excursion. The train did not arrive on time to meet us at the coach and our schedule had to be rearranged. When it finally did arrive we found the ride uncomfortable on the cobbles - the seats were wood with...More

This train takes you through Tallinn old town. My memory is not of Tallinn but on the cobbled streets and the need for cushions. This is not in the least comfortable as your bounced up and down on the timber seats. The only consolation is...More

6 euros/ person price is quite acceptable, though we couldn't enjoy much of the trip since my boyfriend was falling to sleep after 10 mins ride. The cobblestones underneath just didn't let us feel completely awake, even the ticket seller (I guess she has to...More

15-20 minute tour of the old town: highlights how close everything is. Children should be accompanied: we experienced, with disbelief, a 4/5 year old child travelling alone with us on our seat. (3 people per seat). The owners need to take control of the situation.

I was tired, so I jumped on the tourist train for a ride around Tallinn. Unfortunately, it was anything but relaxing, and not exactly the experience of Thomas. Because Old Tallinn has cobblestone steers, the bouncing around was awful. Then this driver went over the...More
