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. And if they didn’t know the answer they would surf the internet and find it out. It felt as if we were walking around the city with a local who spoke fluent English right by our side. Thank you for the hospitality Helsinki!!!
