Isn't Wikitravel's [[tour]] policy to delete ordinary walking tours, on the basis that an individual traveler could walk the same route on his/her own? I also refer you to this related discussion on a walking tour listing: [http://wikitravel.org/en/Wikitravel_talk:Activity_listings#Vienna_walking_tour_link] It seems to me that, unless we revisit the tour policy, there should be no "Walking tours" subsection, and the only listing now there that should remain is the Secret Tunnels Tour, because those are probably hard to access without a tour guide.

Deletion[edit]

Is there a reason (ie no longer in business or not a place to recommend) why the following was deleted? Maj 23:23, 22 October 2006 (EDT)

  • Vana Tom youth hostel, Vaike-Karja 1, +372 6313252 (fax: +372 6120611), [1]. Very centrally situated in the Old Town, so can be a little noisy. Situated in the same building as a strip club. A breakfast of a ham/cheese baguette, egg, fruit juice and piece of fruit is included. Clean, comfortable dorms. 235 EEK for a triple-decker dorm bed.

Olympic ruins!? What ruins? At least by the looks just about everything that was built for the 1980 Olympics is still in usable condition, most of the facilities have been renovated...

bicycle[edit]

no mention to bicycle on transportation. Who can help?

  • added some information about cycling Helge123 04:52, 21 October 2009 (EDT)

New pictures?[edit]

The page tallinn.fotonet.ee allows usage of its pictures for promotion of Tallinn directed at tourists (http://tallinn.fotonet.ee/eng/front/terms_of_use). Could anyone update this page with pictures from tallinn.fotonet.ee? Helge123 17:24, 26 October 2009 (EDT)

Nice! not sure it falls within our scope though, as anyone should be allowed to reuse wikitravel content, not just websites or people promoting Tallinn. You could always contact them and see if they will allow you to reuse content under a free Creative Commons license. --Stefan (sertmann) talk 17:40, 26 October 2009 (EDT)

It is not reason to avoid real life cause government social politics and their way of "solving" social and poverty problems.

Also, I'm sure you can find thiefs even in Germany, Spain, China and other countries, so why you write like it is disaster? Or thiefs live only in Estonia?
