Tour to Tartu manors

Tartu was established on the lands of eight manors. During this 4-5 hour tour we will see them all, or at least what is left of them. Your guide will offer plenty of information about manor economy and culture over the centuries in Estonia. At some manors you will learn more about architecture: some have nice gardens, and some we will even be able to take a look at from the inside. The tour includes a coffee break and information materials. It is also possible to organize a costume party, dinner or concert, indoors or outdoors.
