Terrific experience. Super-knowledgeable guide provided contextual information regarding architectural choices, as well as information about the architects and their backgrounds. We saw the major buildings within downtown Helsinki and learned how architecture shaped the community, and how the times, politics, and community shaped architecture. Highly recommend.

Kiitos. Show up at the start early if you want to get the best seats (on the upper deck at the front). The headphones provided are of poor quality: bring your own. The comments allow a first approach to the country and the city, so exactly what is needed.

The activity was very interesting. On the other hand, we had to move seats because a box was supposed to give us. The translation did not work. Just a small maintenance problem but for the rest the service is very good.

It was nice to see a little of everything in Helsinki, and thank you for having blankets to cover our legs, it was chilly that day!

Perfect tour to see the most important sights, and just good with 1h45 min. Learnt a lot through the audio guide too.
