Accessibility Description

The Highlights of Tallinn Accessible Shore Excursion has a 4 star Sage Accessibility Rating because it follows a step-free route and uses a wheelchair accessible van with ramp. It did not receive a higher rating because you will encounter some cobblestones along the way and the guides are unable to push a wheelchair.

Most places have plain sidewalks and your tour guide will lead you along a route that includes pavement as much as possible. However, the guide is unable to push a wheelchair on this tour so you will most likely need the assistance of someone traveling with you.
