Helsinki Tallinn Ferry reviews

  • "A good choice"

    It was our first time travelling between Heksinki and Tallin, we had heard that it was done by ferryboat and after searching the net we decided to travel with Eckero Line. It all went very well, beginning with the reservations and then with the exchange of the vouchers for the tickets to the ferry. We liked the ship and the all process of getting on/off board.

  • "An enjoyable excursion"

    While staying in Helsinki, several people told me I should visit Tallinn, and eventually I took their good advice. The best value available of the three ferry companies was Viking, so I booked my return ticket (for Sunday) online. I was expecting a dull ferry ride across the Baltic made worthwhile by the enchanting old town of Tallinn (the latter exceeded expectations!) but I was pleasantly surprised to find the ferry was more like a cruise in some ways. I was surprised to find a bargain in practical clothing in one of the on board shops as well as a really nice meal with a very large glass of red wine on the way back. After I had carelessly left my credit card at the till, a member of staff sought me out (not so easy in the crowds) and I was saved some trouble (I would have got off the ship without it). Very helpful. The 150 minute trip back was lightened by the karaoke bar and the novelty of a dance band, at which some of the more talented passengers demonstrated their skill. A fun excursion, which I would recommend to others in Helsinki with a day to spare.

Helsinki Guide

Located in the Uusimaa region of southern Finland, on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, is the city of Helsinki. The capital of Finland is roughly 80 km to the north of Talin in Estonia, 400 km to the north of Stockholm in Sweden and 300 km to the west of St Petersburg in Russia. Helsinki is widely regarded as one of the major cities in northern Europe and is the country's main hub for politics, finance, commerce and culture.

Popular visitor attractions in the city include Helsinki's largest museum, the National Museum of Finland. It contains a large collection of historical artefacts that date back to prehistoric times through to the present day. The museum's home, a neomedieval castle, is also a popular tourist attraction in its own right. The Helsinki City Museum, the Finnish National Gallery and the Design Museum are three other museums in the city that are worth visiting.

Helsinki's port, the largest in Finland and the second largest in the Nordic countries, has three harbours and 6 passenger terminals. Ferry services using the port depart to Stockholm in Sweden, Travemunde in Germany and Talin in Estonia.

Tallinn Guide

The city of Tallinn is the largest city in Estonia, and its capital, and is a major hub for industry and regional politics. Visitors to the city will love indulging in the city's cultural offerings and visiting the many attractions on offer. Founded in the early part of the 13th century, Tallinn lies next to the Gulf of Finland and is home to an important sea port. Many aspects of the city are medieval, especially around the heritage listed Old Town area, with its maze of cobblestone alleys, many church spires and well preserved fortresses and turrets. The Toompea area of the city is where visitors will find many of the city's most unusual landmarks which includes Toompea Castle and the lovely hilltop Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, which is an important Orthodox building. Another popular attraction in Tallinn is the imposing 13th century Town Hall which overlooks Raekoja Plats and has a tall spire that is topped with an iconic bronze statue of a young boy which guards the city and is known as Old Thomas.
