Tallinn Helsinki Ferry reviews

  • "A fine way to end my mini-Baltic tour!"

    Was blessed with clear blue skies on the last leg of my mini Baltic tour. The terminal in Tallinn is within easy walking distance of the beautiful Tallinn Old Town, with clean, modern and efficient facilities. Check-in was very straight forward and painless, crossing prices very reasonable. personally, I like to be outside and take in the details of the journey, but if you prefer creature comforts, there is loads on board to keep you occupied - shops, bars and salons (the journey is just 2.5 h), even entertainment. The only tussle I had was with a left-luggage locker, which ate €2 and wouldn't give them back, but a nice lady on the information desk was able to sort it out for me. I had a pretty decent hot meal, my requirements mimed successfully with friendly, good-natured compliance! Disembarkment at the Helsinki end was equally painless, with a taxi rank/bus stop immediately outside the entrance.

  • "Easy and simple"

    Very easy to book the tickets and everything at the port and on the boat went easily. However, I was surprised to see that for my ticket to be valid I had to arrive 90 minutes before the ferry at the latest as most foot passengers arrived after this time. Is this really the rule or was my e-mail confirmation wrong?
