It was our first time in Finland for my husband and I and we decided to go on a private tour because the main reason we travel is to learn the unique culture of the country. We had George as our private tour guide. He was astoundingly knowledgeable and absolutely great and showing us around. He knew everything there was to know about Helsinki and was very patient and kind to us as we are from South Africa and not used to such cold weather. He took pictures of us at monumental places and even told us interesting things that weren't related to just famous places that he took us. He had a file to describe the scenarios he was painting out to us and told us many jokes to help us understand the people of Finland. I really admired George's personality. He was outgoing and excited about his country and he really does love what he does because he really is so good at it. If you get a tour with George you are lucky, it will feel as though you know him forever.

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 :)
