We had one day to spend in Helsinki and not knowing anything about the city we were at a loss for what to do or see. I found this company on TripAdvisor and it sounded perfect for us. It was! They met us at the ferry terminal with a very nice and comfortable mini-van. Niki was a great host! He took us to the key sights and offered good discussions as we traveled around the city. He also arranged the most perfect weather for our visit too! ;) It was a great day and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This is the best way to see a city! I wish something like this was available in more cities. Private mini-van, private friendly and knowledgeable guide, equals a fantastic day. He adapted the tour based on our interests and desires. So in a word, perfect. I highly recommend One Day in Helsinki!! You won’t regret it!

The day in Helsinki with Niki was, hands down, the best tour we've ever taken. We were 4 friends who have travelled extensively, with 2 of us having lived abroad in various countries for the last 13 years. We all had high expectations and Niki, from One Day in Helsinki, way exceeded all of them. Besides the fact that he is full of energy and charming as all get out, he is knowledgeable, insightful, and able to structure a fabulous day but be flexible according to his clients desires. The absolute highlight of the day was when we went to his mother's beautiful house and spent a couple hours there drinking the fabulous champagne, eating the fabulous appetizers she laid out and talking with her and Niki, learning about Finnish culture, history, and getting their views on world culture and politics. We had so much fun and learned so much it was the absolute highlight of our 11 day trip in the Baltic. Thanks to Niki for one day in Helsinki, one of the most fabulous days of our lives!

We did the one day in Helsinki with Niki and it turned out to be the best in our 3 country Europe holiday ! We stayed over on our way back not knowing what to expect but fell in love with the beautiful country. Nikki was the perfect host, friend , guide who knew the place very well and made sure we covered all the must-do things in a comfortable pace. It was amazing and I absolutely recommend this trip.

As a second generation Finn of immigrant grandparents, I wanted to take my adult daughters to Helsinki for them to experience their "homeland". Rather than stumble through guide books, I decided to hire a private guide to introduce us to Helsinki and to see the countryside. Niki met us at our hotel on our first day and we had a lovely 3 hour tour becoming oriented to Helsinki and seeing many highlights. On the second day, we visited his family's summer cottage on the Baltic Sea and experienced an authentic Finnish sauna. These 2 days set the stage for a wonderful Finnish experience in Helsinki. Both of my daughters had so much fun they are anxious to return. Niki is a fabulous young man with a wonderful sense of humor and many interesting stories about Finnish history and "back stories" to everything we visited. In my Internet search for a guide, I "stumbled" upon Niki's website and I am very pleased that I found him. I can recommend Niki with enthusiasm for anyone wanting to experience Helsinki and the surrounding countryside in a restful and informative manner. Our trip to Helsinki exceeded my expectations because of Niki.

We were passing through Helsinki enroute to Iceland and had a long stop over. As we have not visited Helsinki before, we thought it was a good idea to do a city tour and come across this tour company in your site. Having read the reviews, we thought we'll give it a try as they offer pickup and return to airport with guide and driver. It turned out to be a most relaxing morning after a long flight and we get to see the popular sites in Helsinki and make it back to the airport with plenty of time to settle. Niki the tour guide and operator is wonderful and most friendly. The tour maybe more expensive than other similar operator but they do not need deposit and put a lot in mutual trust. We nearly had to cancel at the last minute as our flight was delayed but eventually was able to make it

My family and I had such a wonderful experience with Niki and One Day in Helsinki!! They were very easy to communicate with and Niki was able to alternate our plans a little for the weather we were experiencing!! The best part was driving out to the countryside and visiting a completely gorgeous home right on the ocean. We had an authentic sauna experience here and then jumped into the Baltic Sea! It was so refreshing and something my four teenagers are still talking about. Also, the meal we had was out of this world in such a beautiful setting!! Thank you so much, Niki and One day in Helsinki, for an amazing experience that we will be talking about for years!!

Had an amazing day with Niki! From start to finish, everything ran like clockwork and I came away feeling like I'd spent a day with a great friend. We started off checking out some of Niki's favourite parts of Helsinki before heading to his family's seaside cottage, about 45 minutes away. The drive was lovely, through some beautiful countryside and when we got to the cottage it was picture perfect, set right on the water. The highlight though was the sauna, built by Niki's grandfather. Amazing being able to go from 80+ degrees to the water outside for a quick dip, and then back again, and having that whole experience to ourselves - something I'll never forget! Spent the rest of the afternoon chilling by the water and eating before heading back to Helsinki. As if the day hadn't already been amazing, we ended up checking out some great nightspots with friends - I can't decide if that was my highlight or if it was the sauna...I'll say it was both!

Niki, you are an excellent host - and now, a great friend. Thank you for showing me your beautiful city, your family's cottage and your culture. If anyone's thinking of taking one of Niki's tours, I'd recommend it for sure. It will be a day full of great food, excellent company and happy memories.

Niki is the best possible tour guide you can have. He is a wholesome Finn who doesn't care about basic tourist bull***t. He will take you to his super modern cabin where you can swim and enjoy some SAUNA. He can also take you to the basic tourist attractions with a fun twist. If you are cool enough, he will party with you early to the morning.
