Jouko is an amazing story teller who gave us a fantastic trip around Helsinki. We learned a bit about everything, including the history, architecture, culture, language and food!
I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about Helsinki and Finland in general.

I observed that there were two free tours on freetour.com - one that starts at 10am and one that starts at 11am. I initially joined this tour as it fit in better with my timings during the day. However I had to leave as there were many points that were factually incorrect, or that were lacking important details. Although friendly, the guide is in need of improvement, and I would recommend that the overall feel of the tour lacked emotion and empathy. I joined the 11am tour instead run by another company and very much enjoyed it.

Dear Julia, Thanks for you review - we will take it seriously. However, we have reasonable doubt based on your profile and to our competitors that this is not a real review. As a result to this I have reported it to TripAdvisor's Management. Regards, Kimmo Isotalo Director of Administration

I wrote a review here but I got an email saying that the company got it removed, as they obviously did not like my honest feedback. The excuse was that it did not have enough detail and were not sure that it was for the correct company. Therefore, I will write again.

So I attended a tour with GREEN CAP TOURS - yes they had GREEN CAPS, so it was definitely this company. Although the guide was friendly of sorts, his English accent was really bad, to the point that I could not hear him. Why have a guide who has bad English? But anyway we decided to stick with it as we had already invested our time in turning up. The guide was speaking as if he was reading from a book - a dull monotonous voice which just had no excitement. I can assume only that he forgot his morning coffee. The order of the tour was also strange - we did a lot of walking, and not a lot of talking. I am afraid that I had to leave the tour part way through, as it wasn't for me. I did also notice that some others also left. TripAdvisor offers the opportunity to leave honest feedback, and this is what I have done.

Hi Thank you for your honest feedback. I'm terribly sorry to hear that our tour didn't meet your expectation. I assume that you are actually talking about Free Walking Tour - Not Private Custom Helsinki Tour as this review has marked. However, no matter the tour - we have to do better. Providing true value to all our customers is paramount for us. We take feedback seriously and will make the measures necessary to fix the issues you mentioned in the review. We have just recruited new guides and we will go this through with them. Anyway, we hope you good summer and wish that you could give us another change sometime later. With Sincere Regards

Our private tour guide had a lot of positive energy and was eager to teach us about the city yet we felt that compared to other walking tours, the experience was average. It is important that guides have high energy but they also need to have a deeper knowledge of government and history as we do expect to have more solid facts throughout the visit, especially with an older crowd as we are.

We had the pleasure to be guided by Mikael: we were led to many places which are not usually suggested on guides, and was nice having such a person expert in history. Definitely worth the two hours spent! If you have time we recommend it!

My friends and I have been in Helsinki only for one day, so we decided to do the free walking tour hoping to see as much as possible, and we did! Our guide, Ed, made it really enjoyable and he was very friendly. If you want to learn the history of Helsinki and do a fun two-hour walk you must do this tour.
