Whilst visiting friends in Helsinki in August, we'd like to take the ferry to Tallinn for an overnight stay.
I don't think we need visas for Estonia (with US passports), but am unsure whether to find a place
to stay in the city centre, or outside, closer to the airport or beach? How far is the airport from the
city; any suggestions of a clean but safe and inexpensive place to stay, either a hostel with private room
or low-cost hotel? What about attractions or special sights in or around Tallinn…

Hello:
We'll be in Estonia for 2 weeks in July and we'd like to rent a car. Could anyone recommend a rental enterprise? We're travelling with a 2 year-old kid, so we'd need a child seat, too. Besides, we'd like to rent a car with full coverage insurance.
Thank you!

Hello ,
I am an American citizen going to Estonia. I intend to go to Tallinn by ferry from Helsinki, go to Riga, and fly back to Estonia. Do i need a visa of some kind since I'm going to be twice in Estonia on the same trip?

thanks,

Old towns

Hi

Sorry I haven't done much research as this is a last minute idea. Any suggestions on the best old towns between Vilnius, Riga and Tallin, and how much time to spend in each

Cheers

Hi!

About 2 weeks we will leave for a weekend to Tallinn!
As we have a rental car, I was wondering if somebody could advise on local saunas / bath house around or outside Tallinn? Just the one which it's populair for the locals :-)

BTW: I read a lot about Narva, positive and negative..is the drive from Tallinn worth to get a bit of russian experience?

Thanks for your help!

Hi ladies and gents,

In a few months I will be visiting Eastern Europe and Estonia is part of my trip. After reading the forum how it's hard to talk to Estonians, how I will be avoided, how I can't talk to them randomly and have a nice conversation, It's starting to make me think twice to go there.

I usually don't go to group tourist guide because I feel like I don't get the best feel of the country so I do my research myself and go and "make friends" with the locals but if Estonians are so…

Hello,
Three of us are planning a trip to the Baltic countries for 3 weeks. We were thinking of hiring a guide to take us to many parts of these countries and to explain the histories and the cultures. We looked online but most of the tours are with large companies that all go to the same sights. We were looking for a longer tour and hope to see out of the way places that represent the differences of the countries. Perhaps we need to hire a different guide in each country. Any ideas are…

Hi everyone.

I am traveling from Tallinn to Riga by train on Dec. On Seat61 website says that once arrive Valga station from Estonia train, it's only a "cross platform" for boarding on Latvia train to Riga. Since the train from Tartu to Valga arrived 11:37am and the train to Riga departs at 11:42am. Is it possible to make the connection in 5 minutes? Also, can I buy the Valga-Riga ticket on board?

**I am aware that there's some engineering work going on between Tartu–Vägeva part so the Estonia…

Hi All,
I rented a car from this rental agency. When I returned it, we noticed two 2-cm dents on the bumper (Sorry I can't post the photo.).
A couple of days later they emailed me a demand for 374 eur!!!

Throughout July we corresponded about this outrageous charge. Only today I found out that already back on July 7th they 'activated'/charged my 200 eur 'guarantee', without even notifying me. (Of course I'm challenging the charge via Visa International.)
This is to caution potential renters from…
