  • "A short break to Helsinki "

    As covid restrictions were gradually being lifted we decided to take the ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki for the day as we had never been there before. The ferry terminal was very clean and modern and even though the ferry from the outside looked a little tired, the interior was immaculate and obviously had a very recent refurbishment done. The staff were pleasant and food and drink not over priced. So in all a very pleasing experience indeed.
