Excellent tour, like being guided by a friend.

Mikhail met me at the airport hotel and then accompanied me by train into the city and return. We wandered around the city at an easy pace and the information shared was just what I needed. The personalised experience was great and it was certainly a quality experience. I didn't feel talked at or overloaded with information. I am sure Mikhail has provided this tour many times, but it felt fresh and new - he loves sharing Helsinki insights and sites with his guests-cum-new friends! I would definitely recommend this tour. All the booking processes went well. Mikhail replied to my queries prior to departure, and we were able to establish rapport prior to meeting in Helsinki. It was wonderful to be welcomed to Helsinki by Mikhail by email and have everything reconfirmed prior to meeting him for the tour. Absolutely, recommend this tour if you are an in-transit passenger or are visiting Helsinki for the first time. The tour orients you to the city as well as Finnish culture & it's fun.

Great tour from knowledgeable and fun guide!

Great way to go for a woman traveling alone. Mikhail was a great tour guide from the very beginning. He contacted me to set the time and place of meeting and offered to help with locking up my luggage at Helsinki airport beforehand. He was at the designated meeting spot right on time, helped me buy my train ticket into Helsinki and took me on an interesting guided walk of the old town of Helsinki then took me back to the airport. All in all it was a seamless and interesting way to spend a 9 hour layover!

A MUST if you have a stopover in Helsinki!

Our guide, Mikhail, was amazing, starting with the e-mails arranging the tour, continuing to the contact just prior to our arrival, and the prompt airport pickup. He was kind, geared our tour pace to our ages (70's), and was extremely knowledgeable. Touring Helsinki while it was SNOWING was a highlight of our trip. It definitely said winter - Christmas! Mikhail also escorted us back to the airport, right up to security. Don't miss this opportunity!

It was wonderful experience. I was there with my family. It was a bit of walk but very windy so we had to quit it since other family member felt so tired due to the flight of 10 hours. Our guide was Darius and he had a historic knowledge in depth. He was ready to tell about everything you want to know. If i have a chance to visit helsinki again, I will certainly book this trip again. Thanks Darius.

We took this tour today and we really enjoyed it. Both tour guides were very nice people who had no problem answering all of our questions. And if they didn’t know the answer they would surf the internet and find it out. It felt as if we were walking around the city with a local who spoke fluent English right by our side. Thank you for the hospitality Helsinki!!!
