Paulo is a terrific guide and remarkable person. We visited all of the sites in Helsinki and he was very knowledgeable, yet friendly. Our visit to Laplandia was a highlight. Paulo managed to schedule us a private visit to Laplandia where we enjoyed the ice hotel, ice bar, sledging and dog sledding. All were amazing! To top it off, Paulo... More

So fortunate to spend the day in Helsinki in early June with Paulo! Our ship was scheduled to be docked in port for nine hours. We weren’t sure if we should walk about ourselves or go with a tour. Our decision couldn’t have been better! Paulo was wonderful – friendly, professional and very interested in making our visit to Helsinki... More

Husband, brother, sister-in-law and I spent a wonderful 5 hour day touring with Paulo.. He picked us up promptly at the ship and showed us the many highlights of Helsinki...with wonderful descriptions and charming conversation throughout. Terrific late lunch in market place by downtown waterfront....too many wonderful shops to easily decide what food gifts for friends..can't praise Paulo enough for... More

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.

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.
