Day 1 - 2Excursion starts:
You will be picked up from Tallinn International Airport and transferred to a five-star luxury boutique Hotel Telegraaf, which is nestled in Tallinn's Old Town.
After check-in you will have some tome for relaxation and later you will enjoy a 3-hour private walking in tour in Tallinn's Old Town. Your guide will help you discover some of the most fascinating aspects of Tallinn's rich history and present life. Keeping the dry facts and figures at a comfortable level, the guide will tell you about the things that really matter. You will hear many colorful tales of the city, about its history and its people.
During this walking tour you will also have a private visit to Tallinn Portrait Gallery. Located on the first floor of a Medieval building, it offers unique exhibitions. During this visit you will be welcomed by the owner of the gallery and offered a glass of Champagne and some sweets. He will also tell you more about this place.
Later you will visit a studio by kariné, which is a ﬁne jeweler’s brand, established in 2001. The lady behind it is Karin Eensaar, an internationally certiﬁed gemologist with an FGA diploma. After graduating from her studies at the London Gemological Association and Gem Testing Laboratory of Great Britain, she practiced for a number of years at the Antwerp birch exchange. What makes her brand signature unique is the handwriting, which starts from the gem itself – for example, a large baroque pearl or an intensely colourful precious stone or diamond. The gem dictates almost everything: nature has already done half the job. The brand’s handwriting is bold and strong but still feminine – for women with character. The ideology behind it is related to the meaning of the word ‘unique’: every piece of jewellery should be as unique as the person who wears it. In 2009, a by kariné pendant known as the ‘dagger’ was given to Madonna as a gift by the organisers of her concert in Tallinn, Estonia.
After some time for relaxing you will enjoy dinner (for an additional cost) at restaurant Tchaikovsky which is a walking distance from your hotel. At the end of the eighteenth century, the best French chefs found their way to Russia. The resulting fusion of Russian and French cuisine has given the world a symbiosis that is eternally enjoyable. The restaurant, which offers high quality dining experience for real gourmets, where even the tiniest details are important, boasts prestigious Silver Spoon gastronomy awards as the Best Gourmet Restaurant of 2011/2012 and 2012/2013.
