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

We stopped over in Helsinki enroute and back from Iceland and wanted to arrange a day tour. Paulo was great in suggesting the plan and when we eventually did a tour of Porvoo and Helsinki, it was well planned and brilliantly executed! We had planned to see Porvoo and the inside of the Rock Church and the Sibelius monument and... More

We (2 couples and our 22 year old sons) spent a wonderful day with Paulo last week in Helsinki and Porvoo. He is a wealth of knowledge of all things Finnish. We learned so much in just a short period of time. We enjoyed his insight and loved hearing his personal opinions on Finnish politics and culture (and the weather... More

Paulo was very professional and prompt in his correspondence prior to our trip to Helsinki. He met us at our port and the 6 of us (3 couples traveling together on our recent Baltic cruise) had a very special day with Paulo. While not a native to Finland, Paulo knows his Finnish history and culture. He was easy to talk... More

I am a travel agent and was escorting a group of 24 people ( 2 of which were handicap using mobility scooters) through the Baltic, June 21st-July 3rd, 2014. I always prefer using a local tour operator and NOT the cruise lines tours when given an option. I research each location we will be visiting and try to find the... More
