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.

Isabella knew her way around the city and where to go to get out of the rain for a bit. She took us to many interesting spots and showed us how to get thru the underground tunnels.

For some reason the date we entered was changed and they have NO service at all. Not flexible on refunding, NOTHING!
Pick an agency that's more flexible!

Our 6 hour tour with Georg was outstanding! Georg's narration, in depth knowledge was more than a match for the rainy windy weather! He showed us Helsinki historically, culturally and even taught us how to navigate the public transport: We used the ferry system to the islands the next day and made it back!
Georg has infinite energy and introduced us to the local cuisine, history, architecture, art, the magnificent inclusive library, and explained the unique culture to us.
Our highest recommendations!

My three-hour walking tour with Sussy was excellent. She is a very nice and knowledgeable person who showed me some places I wouldn’t have seen by myself. I very much enjoyed my time with her looking around Helsinki.

What can I say about Kerstin. We had a food tour earlier in the day and told her we didnt want to go over the same stuff again. She put together an unbelievable afternoon for us. We visited a hiking trail outside the city. We were able to see the beauty of Finland while also learning more about how they live. The personal interactions really were nice. She had homemade snacks with her too! I can go on and on. If you have the time in Finland to get outside the city, do it.

Very personal tour through Helsinki. Kerstin spoke German as requested. She considered some input we gave her before the tour. The tour was very interesting to us and we have learned a lot from her about the history often in connection with important buildings or places of Helsinki, as e.g. the Olympia Centre. The booked 4 hours were kept always interesting but also with personal sides from her and from us. We can really recommend to book this kind of tour. It is worth each EURO.
