We did a private tour of Helsinki in June. There was a group of 13 of us from the Disney Magic. We were transported in a very nice, clean bus around the city. Some of the tour was by bus and some by foot. It was a wonderful experience. We got to see a lot of the city and took... More

I found Paulo via TripAdvisor. Our cruise ship was only going to be in port for 5 hours so he gave me two suggested itineraries and we picked one. Paulo was very responsive while planning and sent me pictures of his car that we would be travelling in. The cost for four of us with Paulo was less than the... More

We recently visited Helsinki while on a cruise. We booked through Paulo last year and his email communication was excellent leading up to the cruise. Paulo promptly met us at the port and took us in our car to visit Helsinki. He knows the city very well and is excellent with a mix of culture, history, and fun small talk.... More

My Mum and I booked a Baltic cruise but hate the group tours that the ships offer so I decided to find our own guide. After reading some reviews, Paulo seemed perfect. He answered my enquiry immediately and I knew instantly he was the guide for us as he was friendly, professional and clearly passionate for his work. He was... More

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
