Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great tour with excellent guide, enough time to see the key attractions in Helsinki and a good walking tour of a lovely old town of Porvoo. Included a good lunch of traditional dishes in a local restaurant. Would highly recommend this tour. Small group in a small bus.

I used SPB and the tours through Norwegian cruise line and I much prefer SPB. They used audio receiver and headphones so we could still hear our guide Peter anywhere. This allowed me to take pictures and not miss out on information. He was very knowledgeable about all the sites. Initially I was worried about missing the cruise ship using an independent tour group, but they are very well organized and always aware of the time
