          Great tour!
          Recently, my family and I went on a sightseeing tour of Helsinki and the medieval town of Porvoo, and it was an unforgettable journey! Our guide was simply magnificent – not only did he know all the historical facts and interesting stories perfectly, but he also delivered them with such enthusiasm and charisma that we were all captivated. The car we traveled in was very comfortable, making the trip even more enjoyable. In the car, we found bottles of water and various snacks, which were very welcome after our walks through the beautiful streets of Helsinki and the cozy lanes of Porvoo. The tour was perfectly organized, the itinerary well thought out, and we managed to see all the key places and landmarks. In Porvoo, we immersed ourselves in a medieval atmosphere, enjoying stunning views and unique architecture. Overall, this tour left us with the most positive impressions, and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see and feel the true charm of Finland.

          The guide is punctual and polite, and the whole trip is simple and safe. If you don't want to join a tour group with many people, this must be a very good experience.

          Excellent trip
          My impressions of both transfers in Tenerife were simply delightful! Starting from the moment of arrival at the airport, we were provided with first-class service. The car, which was provided for both the transfer from the airport to the hotel and back, was simply superb. The comfortable cabin and stylish design made the trips very enjoyable for both of us. And the driver was undoubtedly a professional - courteous, punctual, and attentive. I can confidently say that these transfers were the perfect conclusion to our vacation!

          I just returned from my trip, and my experience with the airport transfer to the hotel was simply fantastic! The driver was a true professional who not only spoke excellent English but also made the journey interesting by sharing a lot of fascinating information about the area. Even though it was an early hour, everything went smoothly, and the car was provided on time. Moreover, the vehicle was incredibly comfortable, with ample space for luggage and all passengers. I definitely rate this transfer 5 stars!

          Amazing Experience with Extras. Extremely Professional!
          Incredibly amazing experience in the first week of April 2024. Katrina and her team made our night unforgettable. Not to mention and according to her, we were able to see one of the most colorful light shows of the season. While we were very late in the season, according to her they were nearly done for the year in a week or so, so we had this entire dream location to ourselves. Katrina also went out of her way to take photos for us, even though they were not necessarily included in the package. Amazing hospitality and the food was delicious with fresh cooked salmon with potatoes, over the stove warm berry juice and a berry cheesecake with a scoop of ice cream. We were a group of 7, but they managed to bring 2 cars which made the 30 minute drive from Santa’s Village much more comfortable. They could have fit us in the 9 seater they had, but instead they went above and beyond our expectations and over delivered. Since it was very late in the season, we were expecting to just go for a cruise on their provided snowmobiles and scooters, which would have topped off the night as we did not plan to see much dancing in the lights. However, the night only got better and will leave memories of a night that will never be forgotten. Thank You! Your kindness made us happy and we felt like you were part of our family!

          Local guides offer the ideal way to see Stockholm.
          There are a number of tour companies. We booked with Tours by Locals (Anna), who was amazing. Even in the winter, the ferry rides to the various islands were awesome. We visited a number of museums, and stopped for Fika, a Swedish tradition. I do not recommend the hop on/hop off tourist bus system. Sounds good, but construction of levees make it difficult to find the stops, and there are no enclosures for bad/cold weather.

          Kate was a fantastic host, she made us feel so welcome. The area is so lovely and quiet with nobody else around. Food was also amazing! We only wish we could spend more time enjoying the lovely area relaxing with drinks. Although we didn’t get to see the northern lights, the ski scooters were so much fun! Highly recommend!

          Unique Experience. Beautiful Evening
          Wow! This activity and the company "The Guide Father" were beyond all expectations. The pickup was right on time, Katia was a delightful guide and the transportation extremely comfortable; including a sun roof just in case those Northern Lights were out for the drive. Upon arriving at the property there were a few igloos on the shore of the lake which faces North for best viewing. The fire was warm and the food delightful! Main course including a perfectly cooked piece of salmon with chips. Dessert made me think I was in heaven. Dinner was not rushed, nor were you left waiting too long between courses. After dinner we were given some warm overalls, gloves & boots (if needed) and time for driving the snow scooters. This was FUN!!! Whilst perfection would have been if aurora had come out to play; the experience was still great value for money and an evening I will never forget. Thank you 🙂

        Do not book with Scandinavian Experts. I paid for a10 am tour and they changed it to 11:50 less than 24 hours before the tour was scheduled to start. No communication since and only a 50 percent refund. I would really recommend a different excursion. Buyer beware.

        Thank you for your review. You made your reservation with NOT PROVIDING US any information of palace, time or even ne of the ship. You Just wrote PORT OF HELSINKI. We have 5 ports in Helsinki area with different ferry and Cruise ship time arriving. We did try to contact you several times by email and phone number which you provided in itinerary but no answer from you. We did set 11:50 Just to make sure youll show up in any place before noon. And Just on the Day of the tour at 10:15 you called us and informed us about your location and name of the ship. We informed you that car and guide can be there at 11:00am earliest for you but you reject this offer. According to VIATOR policy All bookings cancellations less 24 hours non refundable. We did arrange from our side 50% of refund anyway even it was't our fault. Please pay attention for the phone and emails. Phone number and email Adress always needed for the booking for this kind of issues. And of course please fill up FULL AND CORRECT INFORMATION about pick up place in itinerary.

        My layover in Helsinki Finland became an unexpected first visit to Finland but as I only had 48 hours I had to make the most of my valuable time. I booked the VIP tour and Igor and Christine took me in absolute luxury to all the amazing slight seeing places.
        Medieval Porvoo, Olympic Stadium, rock Church and many many more.

        Friendly, knowledgeable and exceptional service!!

        Highly recommended!!! Thank you Igor & Christine 😊

        My tour guide was Christine. She was fabulous. The first thing shecdid was take a few moments to plan our day together, taking into consideration what I most wanted to see. She then also gave me additional choices and made recommendations. She made sure I was safe at all times given the slippery conditions. She not only could discuss all of the sites but also shared Finnish culture with me. Nikolai was our driver. He was efficient, a gentleman, and assisted me with a heavy piece of luggage. I highly recommend this tour and these two employees. I also now know where I want to go and what I want to see when I return in May.

        Our tour around the Helsinki was excellent. I would not go to Porvoo if it would be my choice.
        Not much to see. Rather stay in Helsinki there are a lot to see for one day.

        This tour exceeded our expectations. We learned so much about so many aspects of Finnish history, society and politics. Parvoo was beautiful. We loved the Sibelius monument. Surprisingly our highlight was the library : it should be a template for every library! Cornelia is a really great guide.

        We had a very relaxing, informative tour with Andrew and his wonderful driver. We left the city of Helsinki with all sorts of historical facts and traveled to the quaint old town of Porvoo which the Tsar AlexanderI had discovered. We walked the town and visited the church and tried some goodies along the way. Then we headed back to Helsinki and found the wonderful Helsinki library Oodi which was amazingly interesting! Then we went to the Cathedral and ended up at the old Market Place.
        Andrew left us with a great suggestion for lunch.
        It was a grand tour!
