We loved Paulo de Freitas. We were on a 2 week trip through Scandinavia with one week on the Oceania cruise ship, 3 days in Norway & 2 days in Stockholm. We decided to take one private tour off the ship & we are glad we did. Paulo is warm, friendly, informed & really wanted us to enjoy our 5 hours with him. He took us to all the sights & was very knowledgeable & enthusiastic. We were the only ones on our ship that got into the Rock Church because he knew the timing. I wanted to see a synagogue & he took us there, not able to get us in because the caretaker was off doing a tour. He taught us about the culture, the language & the people. Two highlights for us was climbing the tower of the Olympic Stadium & having coffee & a delicious Danish pastry at the number one lunch spot in Helsinki.
This was our best tour of our trip. We highly recommend Paulo. I promise you there will be no disappointments.
We miss him already.

“Informative and fascinating.”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Spent the day with Paulo and had a wonderful insight into Helsinki and Porvoo. Our guide was knowledgeable, accommodating, interesting and enthusiastic and provided us with a comfortable, informative and thoroughly delightful experience of both of these marvellous places. In addition, Paulo organised our tour of Tallinn and that too was amazing. Paulo is easy to deal with, efficient and we truly appreciated his input into our trip. I would unhesitatingly recommend Paulo's Tours.

“Great day with Paulo!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

A group of six fellow travelers had a great day in Helsinki and the village of Porvoo, plus a boat ride - compliments of Paulo's exquisite planning so we could fit everything in on one day. It was the first time he had tried to do all this in one day, and he was so cute getting us where we needed to be and ON TIME. He was delightful and interesting and factual. Not being the greatest history buffs in the world, and wanting to have some fun along with history, he managed to keep us all entertained but not boring us with hours of lectures. It was fun going downtown to the shopping district in Helsinki and we especially loved the candy store. He was fun and delightful, you can't miss going with Paulo. He does everything he says he will, you will not be disappointed.

“Paulo is Enthusiastic”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We arranged for a full day private tour with Paulo, including a car and group size of 5. Paulo quoted us a fee of 500 euros, half payable in advance via PayPal. We toured Helsinki and Porvoo. I thought this was a high fee, but was consistent with other quotes for the same level of service. Everything in Helsinki is expensive. Paulo provided lots of information between venues and clearly loves his adopted country. His knowledge was both historical, cultural and current events. As I like to learn about local politics and economics, these conversations were very enjoyable to me. When it came to the major venues, Paulo did not offer the in depth explanations he provided about Helsinki, in general, or what I have experienced with other private guides. There were numerous monuments around Helsinki I would like to have heard more about whether we stopped in or not. I recommend Paulo, with the understanding you are getting a wonderful private guide and driver, but not an expert on every venue in Helsinki
