everything was nice! highly experienced and friendly guide Florian who took us to so many nice places and showed major landmarks in Helsinki. it is a small group activity and we really enjoyed going around having a chat with him and other guests. he gave couple of good advises and tips where to buy real souvenirs and to eat.
simply, loved it!
Fantastic tour with our guide Maria. Great if its your first time in the city, you will get a better understaning of Finland's history and cultural, plus you will get to know the layout of the city. Definitely put this on you to do list.
This was a very relaxed way of seeing Helsinki, with a charming young man, whose name escapes me. The rain poured down our first half-hour, but it didn't bother us at all. When the sun came out again, we had reached a lovely walking area near the harbour, where we bought delicious French onion soup. Another treat by the harbour was reindeer-burgers......mmmmmm
Our guide was excellent. He was funny, pleasant, and very knowledgeable. He gave us a lot of good historical information about Helsinki, Finland, and the Finnish language. The directions to the meeting location were very good, and his funny hat made him easy to spot at the busy meeting place. The tour was a good mix of interesting information, visits to scenic locations, and time for a break and to get something to eat at the local market.
We arrived early at our meeting point and it wasn't long before our guide arrived wearing her funny hat,making her easy to recognise. The tour started off at Senate square and finished at the rock church, with many interesting places in between. Catherine was great. Would recommend this trip.
