A fantastic tour with Acquelline
Despite the awful cold rain I had a brilliant tour with my guide Acquelline. As I was the only client that day, we had the time and space to spend as much or as little time at each stopping point. Her knowledge of the city, its history and Finnish culture was great and the 3 hours passed by so quickly. I had a great educational morning tour with Acquelline and I would recommend this tour to everyone visiting Helsinki.

Informative and Fun Walking Tour
Mar 2020
Chris was a great tour guide. Chris's communication was specific and very explanatory and able to relate the experiences in Helsinki to other areas within the world.
It was very clear that Chris's knowledge was first class and communicated the detail clearly and in a simple manner.
We were fortunate to have this small walking tour and it only included the 2 of us. The tour was a great pace and gave us a great founding for our first day in Helsinki.
well done Chris. Highly recommended.

Great way to see most of the city sights
Met the super guide Elisa at the designated meeting point (outside a small shopping mall on one of the main shopping streets). As it was early February, -1 centigrade and foggy, I was the only one on the tour!. Elisa was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who moved you at a good pace so that you could see as much as possible in the 3 hours of the tour ..lots of walking so comfortable shoes essential..and lots of layers and hat if like the winter day of my tour. I felt I had a very comprehensive insight and visits to most of the key sights I had on my to see list for Helsinki and you still then have the afternoon to explore further or go back and spend more time at places from the tour. Great little tour from excellent guide Elisa. Thanks.

City walking tour
Jan 2020
Last weekend we enjoyed a city walk by Nova Fairy tales. Our guide Ed from Ireland took really good care of us for a good 3 hours and had so much fun and interesting stuff to share with us that we felt really inspired. Good pace, a few breaks to warm up and lots of fun and great info. 5 stars from me and my children!

Wonderful insights to Helsinki history and life
Jan 2020
Our guide Ed was excellent providing a comprehensive, informative and easy to understand history of Helsinki over the past couple hundred years or so. He engaged with all people in our 9-person group which made for an enjoyable 3-hour tour around the historic parts of Helsinki. He also was very willing to provide tips on where to go for good coffee and restaurants etc. We thoroughly recommend the Small Group tour - having a maximum of 10 in the group ensures that you are able to be involved and hear what the guide is saying.
Thanks Ed for a great introduction to Helsinki.

Hi Peter, Thank you for the positive review. Edward will be thrilled to hear your feedback. Smaller groups gives our guide the time to engage with everyone in the group, answer questions and give recommendations on what to do after the tour. Glad you enjoyed that aspect! We hope to see you again on of our tours. Best, Asta

Great experience
Jan 2020 • Solo
I met the other people on the tour a few minutes before it started and we were a little nervous because we couldn’t find the guide (just be ware he has a small sign and will find you outside not inside the cafe). The tour was really interesting and fun and didn’t feel like 3 hours worth of walking. Well worth it especially if you’re alone and want to find more parts of the city!
