Which daytrip from Tallinn -- eastern or western Estonia?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to be on vacation in Tallinn in early September, and following the recommendation in jrjcollins' wonderful 2012 trip report (title "Four Days in Tallinn, Estonia"), I want to do a day trip through EstAdventures (http://www.estadventures.ee/).

I'm looking for advice on which trip to take; the details of the three that fit my schedule are below. I am more interested in people & society, and less interested in pure nature. I like small towns, scenery, history (especially 20th century, but also older). I mainly want a sense of what the rest of Estonia "looks" like. I am guessing that the Eastern or Western trip would suit me more than the Lahemaa trip, but all advice is welcome.

Eastern Adventure: http://www.estadventures.ee/eastern-adventure-day-tour-estonia.html
Visits: Aaspere Manor, Toolse Castle, Vihula Manor, Rakvere Castle, Purtse fortified manor house, Kiviõli.

Western Wonders: http://www.estadventures.ee/western-wonders-estonia-day-tour.html
Visits: Padise Monastery, Haapsalu Castle, Haapsalu Promenade, Ungru Manor and Air Base, Koluvere Castle. Laitse Castle

Lahemaa National Park: http://www.estadventures.ee/lahemaa-estonia-day-tour.html
Visits: Rebala Bronze Age Graves, Kiiu Tower, Viru Bog Trail, Palmse Manor Estate, Altja Fishing Village, Käsmu Captain's Village, Jägala Waterfall
