We chose to do the tour in Helsinki. It was informative and fun. It had a great mix of history, architecture and stories of the city! 4 hours flew by and we were given some excellent tips on where to eat and what not to do as a tourist . Thoroughly recommend. Thank you!

Your tour guide holds the key to your enjoyment. Mary was fabulous, knowledgeable, funny, excited about the information she presented and ready to answer a barrage of questions from our group of about 10. Unexpected places, unique stories, recommendations and even a free map. Mary gets five stars.

Very interesting experience with gems of Helsinki, jokes and optimism. Worth it, recommended to everybody. My friend and I had Larisa as our guide and she was fantastic! She told us so much about Helsinki with seemingly such a short amount of time. The tour was about 4 hours and took us all around the central area. It was so worth the time and really, several hours flew by so quickly! Not a particularly strenuous walk either. Thanks Larisa!

We recently took the intro tour with Sveta on my boyfriends birthday. We both learnt a lot on the tour including- history, food/drink recommendations (which we used a lot of) and got our bearings around the city. The only way this tour could be improved is it felt very rushed so there wasn’t much opportunity to take photos. Thanks a lot anyway!

This trip is ideal to do on your first day in Helsinki. Simona got us really well oriented with the city and its history. She spent just the right amount of time at each spot, shared some funny anecdotes and left us keen to explore further. Great learning experience in the traditional tourist path. We had read about the tour company, on tripadvisor and hoped she the tour to be as good as we had read. Luckily, the excursion met our expectations and we got so much information at an easy pace.

Natalia was an excellent guide, open to questions and full of information. She was also entertaining. Aaaanyhow, the tour was very interesting and the pace was about right. I would have liked to have had another hour or two, perhaps after a break for cafe, but that just indicates how good it was! If it is a chilly day, dress extra warmly. It is a walk, but there is some standing and listening, of course.
