Firstly let me say the tour was not bad. It was not the worst, but nor was it one of the better ones we have had. For us and for what we felt Helsinki had to offer we felt that perhaps it dragged on just a little too long. The tour was conducted in two loops, one being of the... More

I recently did a couple of bike tours with these guys and they were really nice. I guess I also got lucky since I was the only person who was on both of the tours, but I think the guides really helped to make my experience as well. It felt more like a friend showing me around the city and... More

I did the Free Walk last Saturday and I really enjoyed it! We saw a lot of attractions in the historical and modern city center and our guide Birgit gave us a lot of information to go with it. It feels like I got a really good insight and it was really interesting and fun!

When visiting a new city, we love to get our boots ground by doing a free walking tour where ever we can. This one did not disappoint. Matti was our guide today, he was professional and delivered a lively tour with humour. We hit all the highlights. Well done mate and thank you for an excellent tour of the city.

An enjoyable two hours spent with guide Matti, walking and tasting some Finnish specialties. The food selection was not bad, though I'd have liked to spend more time tasting in the indoor market and perhaps skipped the children's candy store.

I had an amazing walking tour with Food tasters today! Extremely recommended ! You can think that is expensive ( I did ) but im really think that makes the diference to be guided for someone who really know the Helsinki history and was such a nice company! Thanks for all!

We took the sustainability tram tour in January 2017. Our guide, Birgit, was the best. She was very knowledgeable about Helsinki and Finnish culture. She took time to answer all of our questions and pointed out many interesting things we wouldn't have seen/known if we were walking the streets on our own. She also made sure we knew which tram...

Emil took our tour and was an excellent guide. It was a cold day with a snow storm but he kept us moving and took us to lots of interesting spots. He had great history to share and good tips for where to go in the city! Definitely recommend this tour
