We learned a lot of interesting things about the country and its people on the 3-hour tour and felt very well looked after by our guide. Helsinki doesn't offer the massive sights and yet there is quite a distance to go. Conclusion: Helsinki is not Paris but it is a pleasant city and we learned a lot with our very good guide!

Marc is an incredibly passionate guide about his job, and sharing his knowledge of the city. Warm and open, we felt like we were visiting the city with a friend. Our visit was perfect and we had a great day. We discovered Helsinki in several facets (cultural, culinary, way of life, history…)

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.
