"Helsinki to Tallinn and back!"
Finding the port was extremely easy, the staff were incredibly helpful and it was a smooth journey both times we travelled. Would recommend visiting Tallinn to anyone, Old Town is beautiful and the TV tower is definitely worth a trip up for ~£10.

Exactly what you'd hope it to be! Smooth, efficient, punctual service. Pleasant on board with good facilities to take advantage of, should you wish.

Excellent journey both ways (Helsinki -Tallinn - Helsinki), more like a cruise than a ferry. We weren't sure what to expect but could not have been happier with the on board service. Of course there will always be areas for improvement and if it is possible I would suggest a reduction in the amount of walking on land e.g. some sort of moving walkway (as at airports)?

"Great trip to Tallinn"
Viking Line were great! Best part was the little dance by the Viking Line staff before the trip, I couldn't quite believe my eyes, but it put a smile on everybody's face. Easy trip and hassle free. I would use Vikng Line again.

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.
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.
