About
The trip to Porvoo takes approximately 40 minutes, on the way we will tell you about the history of Finland and also the cultural aspects of the Finnish nation. Porvoo is the second oldest city in Finland. The town is famed for its "Old Town", a dense medieval street pattern with wooden houses. It is the town of Johan Ludvig Runeberg and Albert Edelfelt.

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.

Darius with Other away Travel did a fabulous job. He has had his own company for over 20 years, speaks 6 languages, and specializes in Finland and Scandinavian/European history. The trip was extremely cost effective for all the knowledge he provided and in-depth experience of Porvoo. This trip is for the able bodied as streets are just hard to navigate and hillsides, etc. However, definitely worth your time if you are so lucky to get Darius or his company.

It was a very enjoyable day, and I highly recommend Darius and his service
