A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! The tour was just brilliant! Emek really knows his stuff, it was so interesting I could have listened to him for days. The small group was a big plus, too. Without this tour I would have missed so much... it contributed a lot to my wonderful stay in Helsinki. Book it!

The highlight of my trip. Learned so much from an extremely knowledgeable and communicative guide. Want to live in Helsinki now. It has had a fascinating history and is looking forward to the future.

Both educational and fun. Architecture and urban planning during a three-hour walk gave us meat on the bones around the city of Helsinki. We thank our guide Emek who was a real knowledge bank.

Emec is so knowledgeable about architecture in Helsinki and what determined it’s character. He’s very articulate! Such a joy to listen to. This tour is top notch!
