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.

    This was a great walking tour. The guide provided comprehensive information, including historical and present day. I highly recommend taking this tour on your first day in Helsinki.

    This was a great one day experience. I wasn’t sure how this was going to work but in the end everything went flawlessly.

    We were picked up early from our hotel and driven to the port. I had received my tickets for the boat the night before so all we had to do was scan the QR codes.

    The ship is huge! There’s no pre-assigned seating so we asked the concierge and they recommended deck 8. It was a 2 hour trip during which we bought snacks and drinks and sat in comfortable chairs. There were lots of entertainment choices but we opted out of them and just relaxed.

    When we are at Tallinn, the tour guide was waiting for us. We were driven to the old town and went on the 3-hour walking tour. It was bitterly cold but the tour was worth it. Tallinn is gorgeous and the tour guide did a great job. After the walking tour we went to a restaurant for a long lunch because it was cold and rainy. Three more hours later we met a transfer car at the spot the tour guide had indicated and were driven back to the port. We used the same QR codes to board the ship.

    We napped on the trip back to Helsinki and called an Uber to take us back to our hotel. A very long day but extremely worth it!! Highly recommend it. Now I think I’ll go back to Estonia for a longer trip.

    We were on a tour with Sanna. She did a great job touring us around, despite the rainy and cold weather. She was very knowledgeable on the sites and history of Helsinki, and gave us tips of what else was going on in the city that weekend. A good overview of the city and Suomenlinna! Would have enjoyed learning and doing more, but that would require a full day rather than a 5 hour tour. It went fast!

    We visited Porvoo for its history, and to get a sense of life outside Helsinki. Darius was a fantastic guide - knowedgeable, informative and friendly. Thanks for a great trip.

    This was our favorite hiking tour in Finland! Jeff was very kind and knowledgeable of the forest. He educated us a lot during our hike and provided us with amazing food. This is a must if you are staying in Helsinki! You will be connecting with nature in a very special way.

    This was the best tour I’ve ever taken - and made Helsinki the highlight of our trip. Phillipe was a terrific guide. His knowledge of the city, and especially of the history of Finland, was amazing - he made the city come alive for us. He was very accommodating, adjusting the tour for the things we most wanted to see, and took us places we wouldn’t have thought to go.

    When he started the tour, he said he was going to take us to the Library. My first thought was “the Library?”. But the library actually was incredible - everyone we’ve told about it wants to go!

    Don’t miss this tour - and ask for Philippe!

    Highly recommend this tour while in Helsinki, and especially useful to orient yourself to the City Center.
    I booked the night before the tour, as I wasn’t sure how’d I feel with the jet lag. Greatly appreciated the structure of this tour in that one can join last minute.

    My tour guide was Matti, and he was great! A self-described eccentric, he did a great job leading us around with a mix of history, current affairs, architecture, famous Finnish people, and stories from his own life to help us better relate to growing up in Finland. His energy and enthusiasm for his city, and his job, helped to keep the whole group interested and asking questions as we walked around Helsinki.

    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.

    Travelled to Tallinn for the day from Helsinki. Boarded 730am crossing to Tallinn. Although ticket purchase is done online, we were able to buy tickets at the terminal.

    Ticket purchase was possible at a counter or via kiosk machine, but we opted for the counter. Operator was friend and courteous and quickly processed our tickets and cross checked our passports. Within minutes we had paid ( no cash transaction) and moved to the departure area. Terminal was spotless and easy to walk around, well signposted.

    Boarding was easy and efficient and journey on Mystar vessel was enjoyable. Ship journey was comfortable and we were able to buy breakfast onboard. Plenty of meal and drink options at reasonable prices. Our return journey from Tallinn was on the Megastar vessel, which again was a great experience. Return cross was at 130pm and so we ate lunch on the ship. Again the meal options were plentiful and reasonably priced.

    Being that this is an international journey, there was a duty free shop on these ships as well.

    We were staying on the east side of Helsinki city and getting to the ferry terminal (terminal 2) was very easy using the Trams metro and the HSL app. In Tallinn, the terminal is within walking distance from the old town city,which was very convenient.

    Overall it was a great experience

    We had a great day with Sergei inTallinn! The company provided clear instructions and made getting on the ferry easy and Sergei was there to greet us as we arrived in Tallinn. He spent the majority of the day driving us from site to site and was incredibly knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. He walked us around Old Town and then gave us a little time on our own to eat and circle back to things we wanted to see more closely. Again, it was incredibly easy to get the ferry back to Helsinki.

    My husband mistakenly left his cell phone in a cafe and I cannot say enough good things about how hard this company worked to help us get it back- even across the Gulf of Finland! I would 100% recommend this your for an enjoyable and informative day trip to Tallinn.

    We had a great tour! Great information and was very enjoyable. 10/10 recommend. Suggest for adventurous eaters, or at least one in the group, but there was something for everyone. I hesitated on the roe but definitely enjoyed it! Would not have been able to experience all we did in the almost 3 hours doing this ourselves. We were completely full by the end too! No need to buy any lunch :)
