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.

    Our tour guide Darius was amazing. Personally, I have been to Helsinki and Porvoo before and have taken a tour, but Darius’ tour greatly exceeded my past experience with a different tour provider.

    Darius gave a great tour of Porvoo. The pace was good, he clearly knew many locals as he was waving to people the whole time, and the stops were a good amount of time. But the tour was more than just sightseeing. He had an incredible wealth of knowledge about not just Porvoo, but also Finnish culture. His narration really enhanced the experience.

    Would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone looking for a day trip out of Helsinki. One of the best tours I have ever taken.

    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.

    Darius is an experienced and knowledgeable guide. He led us on a leisurely tour of Porvoo, stopping for coffee and responding helpfully to our interests and requests.

    Despite the cold and rain, despite my poor clothes choice and despite being the only person on this tour, it was the best ever. A personal touch and rapport with tour guide Larisa (aka Lara) made my Helsinki tour the best Ive been on yet. Larisa was incredible at explaining history, architecture and all things food. From the impressive Lutheran Church down cobblestoned streets to protected apartments, through the waterside market and food market. Larisa knew the store holders personally and made perfect choices of Finnish delicacies for me to try. Note - no breakfast needed. Wandered up the esplanade to and incredible bakery for more to try and a warm cuppa. We passed through chocolate shops and department stores until parting ways with a warm hug at Stockmanns.
    Wow, Larisa, you made my stay in Helsinki!
    Thank you x

    This amazing experience was everything we could have wish for! :) We were group of 4 participants. Jeff, our guide, is very nice, caring and well prepared. He explained everything and also brought special clothes (boots, slippers, etc) in case of need. Even though he is canadian, he lives many years in Finland and knows a lot about it. The ride to the national park in minivan is very comfy. The hike was easy and very pleasant. Took about and hour to the lunch spot near the lake, on well handled path. We also did some mushroom foraging and bird watching on the way. Jeff chopped the wood and cooked a nice lunch for us on the grilling spot. The sauna experience was amazing too. There are 3 outside smoke (mix) saunas with various temperatures. The hottest one had 134 degrees. I highly recommend to take a dip in the cold lake after the sauna and relax on the bench. One could feel a bit dizzy but it passes in couple minutes and wellbeing feeling that comes is priceless. There is a hairdryer in the changing room. It was a perfect day! We had a really great time and I'd recommend this experience to anyone who wants to relax and get away from the city hassle in a very comfortable way! Thank you Jeff and Kia and all the best!

    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.

    My private tour was wonderful and exactly the type of tour I was seeking. Isabella was a knowledgable and friendly guide who took to a range of places in Helsinki including some well-known places such as the Old Market Hall and Oodi and some off the beaten path. Being May 1st, it was a lively, festive day to go walking and one place Isabella took me to was the Kaivopuisto park where all the locals were gathering to celebrate. This was a lovely experience and I'm so glad I decided to go on this tour!

    I’ll be back to see more of Finland someday, but I really only had one day to get acquainted before heading north. This was the perfect introduction to the city of Helsinki! The guide Olga was fantastically friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to give me time to take snaps. She even accommodated a special drop off. Thanks for the fantastic intro to Helsinki. Hope to be back in the not so distant future! Tracy

    After careful review of our options, we chose Tallink for our day cruise. We arrived at the terminal early to purchase tickets and were accommodated quickly. We left at 10:30 am and returned at 1630 pm. While it was only a few hours in Tallinn we felt it was sufficient for us. The MegaStar had a beautiful garden deck that we sat in before spending lots of time shopping. We took the Star back and it was okay in comparison. The food was mediocre at best for both boats but overall we had a great experience

    Went on a lovely trip with Tero (The Captain) with my family and young son. First off life vests were available, and one perfectly fit my 2 year old son who had a blast (until he fell asleep on his grandfathers lap!)

    Highly recommend bringing a few beers or beverages to enjoy on the prow as Tero cruises you around Helsinki. The price point for a great tour cannot be beat.

    The boat had all the facilities you really need, a small bathroom and a cabin to store your materials. We left our stroller at the Cafe where he picked us up, but honestly it probably would have fit find in the Cabin.

    It was a great family outing and a wonderful way to spend the evening. The sparkling wine and snacks were a nice way to Cap the evening.

    It was a good way to see the city and use it as a means to get to other places i wanted to visit (without loads of waking or extra cost)

    There was a bit of information via the headphones not no guides which is often the best bit as they can share amusing anecdotes or interesting historical facts

    Also, be mindful that the buses were only every 30-40 mins (might change in peak times)

    Knowledgeable, warm, intelligent guide Lara gave a great variety tour. Our tour was delicious and fun. Lara told us about Finnish culture and shared cool locations in the city.
    Before the tour, I had never tried smoked deer meat, it was unexpectedly delicious. The end of our tour was a beautiful view from the bar, where we continued to enjoy the city, drinks, and food. I am happy to recommend this tour with Lara!
