Amazing guide, very knowledgeable and flexible, was happy to show me things I was interested in seeing in Porvoo and discuss other off topic subjects related to Finland in general. I highly recommend this tour to Porvoo, especially the museum and Holm House. A quaint little village full of charms and nostalgia, an important city in Finland's history. Well worth a visit.

The Porvoo tour was really good. Transfer and guide were all excellent! It perhaps would have been nice to have a little more free time for a wander, but that also have been us taking too long for the other components.

We took this tour because we wanted to see really historical and authentic Finnish city. Actually, as we got to know from our great guide, it is the second oldest city of Finland. We were travelling with our small child, and taking individual tour was the best option for us. We highly recommend this tour!

Porvoo is a very lovely old city, and it is really one of those hidden gems of the country that you should visit to see the real Finland. Our lovely guide showed us well-known spots, as well as small nice places that only locals know about. Absolutely must see!
