Very bad narrator, lacking in details and quality
Apr 2019 • Couples
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

Satisfactory Private Tour
Aug 2018 • Friends
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.

Free Tour Pales in Comparison
Jul 2018 • Solo
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.

Interesting tour and a great guide
Dec 2017 • Business
We took the walking tour in Russian around Helsinki. It was 3h but it never got even slighty boring thanks to our wonderful guide Kata. She was really knowledgeable and also fun. The tour was really well planned and we saw everything we wanted to see. We also asked Kata where we can find a great soup in Helsinki and she recommended us a wonderful place. So Kata if you read this review the Latvian group is really thankful to you for the great tour.

Great tour around Helsinki with Guide Kata!
Oct 2017 • Friends
We were visiting Helsinki with a fairly large group, so we got split up into 2 groups. We got to with our guide Kata, who showed us around Helsinki. This bright and funny girl knew how to show us the city and tell us the story in an interesting an fun way. I wasn't bored for a second and got to learn a lot about Helsinki. The only thing I regret is that we forgot to tip this enthusiastic girl :( So in case you're reading this, supersorry and thank you for showing us around in an entertaining way!
