Great Day

We did a private tour with Paulo to Pourvoo, with a Helsinki overview. It was really nice to do things at our own pace. Paulo is knowledgeable and did great job for us.

Even before I met him, we were like friends. He is the first private tour guide that uses modern technology. He Facetime me a few times. Just audio! That beats few emails. No cost involved too. He even send me a picture of him standing at the sign which he will be waiting for us. I found this very helpful.... More

Paulo met our group of 4 as we exited the ferry terminal in Helsinki. His comfortable car had great visibility and we loved the time we spent learning about the city. Originally from Portugal, he seems to have a genuine love of Helsinki. His constant narrative as he drove us around was insightful, accurate (from what we know on Wiki)... More

We had a fabulous, relaxed and yet informative day in Helsinki with Paulo. This was one the the highlights on our 12 day Baltic cruise. Communication and booking the tour with Paulo was easy and Paulo offered great ideas for what we might do during our day. Paulo met us at our ship in his very comfortable car and took... More

My family (8 adults total) and I booked a full day with Paulo to tour Helskinki and Porvoo during our Baltic Cruise. Paulo was very easy to work with from start to finish.

Spent one day with Paulo in Helsinki and Porvoo. Paulo also arranged transportation and guide for our day trip to Tallinn, which I highly recommend. He then followed up on all the details and made sure every detail was arranged perfectly from the time we left until we returned. We are a family of four with older teens and Paulo... More

Four of us had a wonderful day out from our cruise with Paulo. His car was modern and comfortable. He showed us all the highlights of Helsinki and went way beyond the scheduled time as we enjoyed ourselves. Paulo was very knowledgable but also had a great sense of humour. Highly recommend.

I am very happy that we booked a private tour with Paulo in Helsinki. In speaking with the other passengers on the cruise they didn't see anything nearly as interesting as we did during our day there. Paulo took us to see a wide variety of things that most visitors would miss out on. We saw private gardens, great spots... More

We toured with Paulo on our one-day stop in Helsinki on a Baltic Cruise. I'm so glad we booked with Paulo and not the cruise line. For a really affordable price, we were able to see many sights of Helsinki (Rock Church, Sibelius monument, Senate Square, Olympic Stadium, churches) and he took us to Porvoo, too! We also got to...
