Paulo is first of all a terrific guy! He shared his personal experiences but really knows little about the history or politics of Helsinki. When we book a private guide we expect to LEARN. When we went to the rock church he told us nothing. We went to the Olympic stadium but he did not provide tickets to go into... More

Thank you for your review. I would like to apologies that you were not fully satisfied with your tour. I would like to say a few things. Unfortunately we don't have any tour of Helsinki that includes entrance to the Olympic Stadium Museum unless it has been agreed and arranged in advance. All tours in Helsinki include a visit to...

This actually an overdue review from me. My clients went to Helsinki and we contacted Paulo for his service. He was VERY, and i have to jot down again, VERRYYY, accommodating, helpful, informative, enthusiastic and nice to my clients. They even ask me if Paulo can come along on their cruise trip to St. Petersburg. He was also willing to... More

We spent an afternoon with Paulo. He met us at the airport and spent 3 hours with us showing the highlights of Helsinki. Paulo is full of enthusiasm and great fun to be with. I would recommend him as a great way to see Helsinki with limited time.

We loved Paulo de Freitas. We were on a 2 week trip through Scandinavia with one week on the Oceania cruise ship, 3 days in Norway & 2 days in Stockholm. We decided to take one private tour off the ship & we are glad we did. Paulo is warm, friendly, informed & really wanted us to enjoy our 5... More

Spent the day with Paulo and had a wonderful insight into Helsinki and Porvoo. Our guide was knowledgeable, accommodating, interesting and enthusiastic and provided us with a comfortable, informative and thoroughly delightful experience of both of these marvellous places. In addition, Paulo organised our tour of Tallinn and that too was amazing. Paulo is easy to deal with, efficient and... More

A group of six fellow travelers had a great day in Helsinki and the village of Porvoo, plus a boat ride - compliments of Paulo's exquisite planning so we could fit everything in on one day. It was the first time he had tried to do all this in one day, and he was so cute getting us where we... More

We arranged for a full day private tour with Paulo, including a car and group size of 5. Paulo quoted us a fee of 500 euros, half payable in advance via PayPal. We toured Helsinki and Porvoo. I thought this was a high fee, but was consistent with other quotes for the same level of service. Everything in Helsinki is... More

We were on a Baltics cruise and booked a private tour of Helsinki and Porvoo with Paolo. He met us at the port promptly with a brand new spacious and comfortable van. We saw many sites in Helsinki, then off to Porvoo for lunch and shopping in this quaint town. Paolo was full of interesting facts about his adoptive country... More

We, three girls in our 20s, really enjoyed our day trip to Porvoo and around Helsinki with Paulo last summer. Paulo is very knowledgable about Finnish history, culture; and we learned a lot on our tour with him. In Helsinki, he took us to the Church in the Rock, which was one of our favorite sights there! Paulo also told... More
