I had a quick tour of the city and she was incredibly informative about the history, the architecture and the people of Estonia. I was able to take all the pictures that I wanted but leave us time to MoveOn and see all the highlights of the city. I even told her a very specific type of souvenir I was looking for and she found the exact shop and gave us time to quickly browse for what I needed. Would highly recommend this tour again for how helpful and smooth the fairy pick up and handoff to the Estonian guide went

I had only a day to roam around in Helsinki, and I must say the guide ( Sussy ) was a really warm, patient, professional and a knowledgeable person :) They contacted me a day before the trip, asking me about my preferences so that they could tailor the trip accordingly. I enjoyed their insights about the city of Helsinki, as well as the small tour at the end which we did in the Helsinki Museum, where they narrated me stories about the history of Helsinki and the evolution of design perspectives - really enjoyed it ! I would like to thank them again for their services and their insights and recommendations :)

It’s really one of the easiest tours I have done in a long time according to my preference . We were getting into Helsinki at about 1 Pm and all the tours declined so this was convenient and easy and brought us enough information over the 3 years . The guide mridul was also fun and very flexibile & accommodating as we were with a 6 year old
