    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

    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.

Thank you for the hospitality Helsinki!!!

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 :)

We had Marc as our Helsinki tour guide. He was fantastic. He had a very intimate knowledge of the city (both historical and current) and welcomed all our questions. Would definitely recommend!

Suzzie was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and great attitude. Had a very fun day. I will highly recommend Suzzie to my friends

Our guide was Jenifer, she was brilliant. She gave us an insight to Helsinki we would never had experienced on our own
