For those arriving by ship, the Baltic port of Tallinn is within reasonable walking distance of the city centre. However, courtesy buses are still laid on to transport cruise-ship passengers to & from the city centre, picking up & setting down just outside the city walls.
If you don´t wanna be bothered by looking for your own public transport then the City Tour might be a great deal for you. With one ticket you can reach every place of interest. Three different lines will bring you there. Simply hop on and hop off where ever you feel like.

The Tallinn City Tour Bus, which was obviously inspired by the red, double-decker London buses, is perhaps the most practical way to go from one attraction to the next. The bus goes around the Old Town before heading east, all the way to the TV Tower deep in the Lasnamäe district.
The bus departs from the A-Terminal is the Reisisadam (passenger port) on the hour, every hour, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. With its 13 stops, it takes you within easy walking distance of every major attraction (except the Rocca al Mare Open-Air Museum). There are audioguides on board that you can listen to during your time on the bus to learn a little more about Tallinn.
Thanks to the Tallinn Card, we only paid half-price; the regular price (320 EEK) seemed a little steep to me.
I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the bus.
Almost all the ship tours were by bus. There was a shuttle bus to town. There was also a sightseeing bus on tour.
However there are also city buses and trolley cars.
