    Not Worth It
    This was a 4 hour trip not 4-5 hours. The guide and the driver were very friendly. Took us to some nice panoramic views. However, the tour did not match the description on Trip Advisor site. I expected to go inside Royal Palace, City Hall, and Skanken Museum. We only went by the Palace and City Hall. Didn't go to Skanken Museum at all. They did take us to the Vasa Museum but we had to buy our own entry tickets. Also, we had to buy tickets for a boat. According to Trip Advisor website, all entry fees were to be included in the total. Bottomline, its not worth the money.

    Touring from Stockholm in style
    This amazing tour not only showed me Drottningholm Palace and Gripsholm Castle but so much of the beautiful countryside on the drive there as well as the ferry trip home. A very knowledgeable tour guide who made the day so interesting and informative and a wonderful driver with a magnificent singing voice. I couldn't have asked for more. I can highly recommend this tour to others who want to see more of the Swedish countryside and some of its beautiful historic buildings.

    Short and sweet, highlights of Stockholm
    Wonderful short 4-hour highlights tour with the City Hall and Vasa Museum. Kate is an excellent and experienced guide and Mark is a great driver with a fantastic voice. Love the tour, the commentary, and all the local spots with their history. Short and sweet tour. We were in Stockholm only for two days and this tour made our day.

    Interesting insider's perspective of Copenhagen!
    Interesting three hour tour of Copenhagen on foot. Our guide Mia had a local insider's perspective of the history and geography of the city. This tour does not include a visit to the Mermaid statue.

    Don’t be fooled by the discerption
    Just to make it clear It’s not a 4-5 hour tour . It’s a 4 hour tour on the dot. The tour description says 3 main attractions we only did 2 Never did the Royal Palace. Our tour guide was good but as soon as we got in the car she made it very clear that it’s a 4 hour trip and that we won’t have enough time to go into the Royal Palace If we wanted to see it we had get tickets and go see it the next day . We just did the Vasa Museum and the City Hall Building and then just drove around the city the rest on the time.

    Worthwhile private city tour and Vasa Museum experience
    Gustov and our driver gave us an amazing informative and interesting comprehensive city tour of Stockholm, including a private guided tour of the Vasa Museum. The tour of the Vasa gave us so much insight we would not have learned on our own. The overlooks of the city and its history captured in a nutshell so much history. Eager to answer our questions and navigate the city traffic made this a great learning experience. Exceeded expectations.

    Not really worth the money
    To be honest we had a nice time. Not really wow but pleasant time. The driver sadly only the person in front seat could hear. Andrew was really very nice but as I said information couldn’t be heard. The reindeer farm was very nice except the toilet which frankly is a risk to health, truly rustic and horrible. Cannot recommend the trip as it was so expensive for basically a taxi ride to a park we had to pay for when we got there

    Awesome Stockholm taster from great tour
    I had great experience with Kate and Mark! Got to see the city from lovely vantage points where I would not know as first timer. Also learned good insights about how the city and the people evolved. The atmosphere of the tour is relaxed and friendly, not too rigid as well. We made some adjustments based on my preference as well. Thank you to this awesome couple guide, I was able to plan my next day well.

    Amazing trip from start to finish
    This is a great way to spend the evening! its start off with being picked up in rovaneimi (thanks again for the patience as our flight was delayed) you are then wisked away to the wilderness and land at the glass igloo, its very cool and nice and warm, the food was amazing and local. after 3 courses you go out on the lake on snow scooters and if u dont have the right clothing they have you covered.. no aurora but as u know its like a lottery and one of the previous posters below that gave a 1 star review should have done their homework. Thanks again guys!!

    Relaxing night and dinner
    The Igloo and the food was nice. The lake nearby was quiet and private. The guide shared lots of things with us. Overall it was a pleasant tour. We only tried the scooter a bit but it was not our focus. We also saw a bit of Northern Lights as it was cloudy.

    Lovely experience
    This tour was really worth it, up close and feeding the reindeer in a private tour. The cinnamon bun were freshly made for us that we had around a fire. Would highly recommend.

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 😊

Our Tour Guide was Very professional and the same time personal.
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!

My wife's and my first cruise into Helsinki. I thought a private tour with personal guide would be a nice, stress-free way for us to be introduced to the city. I booked this tour 3 months before arrival knowing that a 10AM start would allow us ample time for this 4-5 hour tour within the time we were to be in port.

The day before our ship arriving to Helsinki, I receive an email from Sophia at Scandinavian Experts asking if we could move the start of the tour up to 8AM as our ship was due to arrive at 7 AM. I agreed to the change.

The morning of our excursion, we set the alarm to wake at 5:30 AM so we had ample time to shower, dress and have breakfast before meeting our guide. During that morning process, I opened another email from Sophia asking us to change the start of the tour to 10:30-11:00 AM. So much for being stress free. Since we had to be back onboard by 3:30PM, I realized that either we would not be getting a 5-hour tour or we could be rushed through the tour to see all the sights. I responded to Sophia that they either needed to start the tour at 10 AM or refund the tour for non-performance. They opted to cancel the tour and refunded our fee.

We found transportation to Helsinki on our own and explored the city.

Why these "experts" could have not worked out the tour as they agreed to do three months before is beyond me. I have booked numerous tours/excursions through Tripadvisor/Viator in the past and never had an experience like this.

Thank you very much for your review. Reason was a visit of Mr.President of US to Helsinki and All the ships and ferrys had to change scheduel of arriving and leaving our ports. We are really sorry but nothing was in our hands. We tryed to do our Best. Our tour is 4 hours so if you would agree to start 10:30am it means 14:30pm back to the ship. But it was your decigion to get refund. Anyway we Glad you got it back immediately and found opportunitie to see Helsinki in your own way.
