    Freezing weather but warm experience with the tour. Driver was punctual in meeting with us at our hotel. For some reason, the other party on the tour did not show up. After waiting in the car for 20 mins, the driver took us straight to the ferry terminal and the boarding process was super smooth and easy afterwards. Local guide Julia was knowledgeable and conducted the tour with comfortable pace, and accommodating to our need for a stop at a coffee shop. We were picked up by a driver to go to the terminal for the return trip without any issue. It feels that communication between the travel agent and the local travel company in Tallin could be more timely.

    A great slice of Helsinki history to digest as you amble around the old and new parts of the city. We would highly recommend this tour, particularly at the start of your visit, as your friendly guide will give you a delicious taste of the main sights in Helsinki that will leave you hungry for more exploring and in-depth visits to some of the places described in the walking tour. Our guide was clear and easy to hear, very knowledgeable and engaging... even giving us a few puzzles along the way and further recommendations, especially for good saunas! Great stuff.

    Our tour was 20 April 2024. First I must recognize Zoe. Thank you for rescheduling our tour. All around exceptional customer service. Cesar was a very knowledgeable and professional guide. We toured Helsinki by Sprinter Van, foot and ferry. Cesar was personable. Cesar made sure we saw many interesting and important sites buildings, library, Olympic stadium and a couple of local shops. Cesar is very knowledgeable about the Finnish Culture. He taught us a few Finnish words. Kitos thank you, the only word I remember. We took a short break at the Old Market. My husband and I enjoyed talking over a cup of coffee. We took the ferry to Suomenlinna. Cesar told us the history of the Fort.
    I highly recommend this tour.

    Despite the cold and rain, despite my poor clothes choice and despite being the only person on this tour, it was the best ever. A personal touch and rapport with tour guide Larisa (aka Lara) made my Helsinki tour the best Ive been on yet. Larisa was incredible at explaining history, architecture and all things food. From the impressive Lutheran Church down cobblestoned streets to protected apartments, through the waterside market and food market. Larisa knew the store holders personally and made perfect choices of Finnish delicacies for me to try. Note - no breakfast needed. Wandered up the esplanade to and incredible bakery for more to try and a warm cuppa. We passed through chocolate shops and department stores until parting ways with a warm hug at Stockmanns.
    Wow, Larisa, you made my stay in Helsinki!
    Thank you x

    Nice boat. Water was low so we didn’t get to go on the tour we purchased. Audio was over a loud speaker and in several different languages. Very hard to hear with everyone talking. Would have been more enjoyable with headphones so you could choose your own language. I would not go on this tour again.

    Our tour guide Darius was amazing. Personally, I have been to Helsinki and Porvoo before and have taken a tour, but Darius’ tour greatly exceeded my past experience with a different tour provider.

    Darius gave a great tour of Porvoo. The pace was good, he clearly knew many locals as he was waving to people the whole time, and the stops were a good amount of time. But the tour was more than just sightseeing. He had an incredible wealth of knowledge about not just Porvoo, but also Finnish culture. His narration really enhanced the experience.

    Would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone looking for a day trip out of Helsinki. One of the best tours I have ever taken.

    My tour guide was Christine. She was fabulous. The first thing shecdid was take a few moments to plan our day together, taking into consideration what I most wanted to see. She then also gave me additional choices and made recommendations. She made sure I was safe at all times given the slippery conditions. She not only could discuss all of the sites but also shared Finnish culture with me. Nikolai was our driver. He was efficient, a gentleman, and assisted me with a heavy piece of luggage. I highly recommend this tour and these two employees. I also now know where I want to go and what I want to see when I return in May.

    This amazing experience was everything we could have wish for! :) We were group of 4 participants. Jeff, our guide, is very nice, caring and well prepared. He explained everything and also brought special clothes (boots, slippers, etc) in case of need. Even though he is canadian, he lives many years in Finland and knows a lot about it. The ride to the national park in minivan is very comfy. The hike was easy and very pleasant. Took about and hour to the lunch spot near the lake, on well handled path. We also did some mushroom foraging and bird watching on the way. Jeff chopped the wood and cooked a nice lunch for us on the grilling spot. The sauna experience was amazing too. There are 3 outside smoke (mix) saunas with various temperatures. The hottest one had 134 degrees. I highly recommend to take a dip in the cold lake after the sauna and relax on the bench. One could feel a bit dizzy but it passes in couple minutes and wellbeing feeling that comes is priceless. There is a hairdryer in the changing room. It was a perfect day! We had a really great time and I'd recommend this experience to anyone who wants to relax and get away from the city hassle in a very comfortable way! Thank you Jeff and Kia and all the best!

    The tour was excellent! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned so much and highly recommend it. We saw all the main sights in Helsinki in just two and a half hours. It was very interactive and he answered any questions we had.

    This was our favorite hiking tour in Finland! Jeff was very kind and knowledgeable of the forest. He educated us a lot during our hike and provided us with amazing food. This is a must if you are staying in Helsinki! You will be connecting with nature in a very special way.

    It was a highlight of our trip in Helsinki and Tallinn. Marie was so knowledgeable and could hold a very decent conversation with depth. We had a very good one day trip here. And we decided to visit Estonia for our next journey. The taxi driver was very kind to give us a brief tour when we came back to Helsinki. It did save us a lot of time on transportation. The whole experience was 5 starts for sure.
