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 guide to Porvoo was so knowledgeable about the history of Finland. He was polite and respectful and made you feel safe in a small group setting. He shared his thoughts and knowledge about the Finnish people and culture. The ride ivet was comfortable and he was very accommodating to what we wanted to do and when we wanted to eat or go into souvenir shops. And excellent last day in Finland.

    The guides do a great job of pointing out the individual plant and animal species. They're very knowledgeable about the area.

    We just returned from a two week trip to Finland. We didn't have much time to spend in Helsinki and decided to schedule a private walking tour for the afternoon we landed. This was a great idea as it gave us a feel for the city, hit spots we were able to check off our list in order to optimize the rest of our time there and stretched our legs after a long flight. Our guide Felipe was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and easy to get along with. He gave us some great recommendations for restaurants and music shops. We also appreciated that even before we arrived, Happy Helsinki's email had great information and details regarding how the taxis worked at the airport and other ways to get to our hotel. I highly recommend them!

    We spent eight days in Finland, and the tour with Emek at the start of the trip was a highlight. How better to learn about a city than from an urban planner who is in love with his chosen home. He's extremely knowledgeable, but also brings insights that can only come from having moved to Finland from another country. We learned so much from him that helped us take full advantage of our time in Finland. Our only regret was that we didn't do more than one tour with him. We would happily have spent days and days listening to his stories.

    When we planned our trip to (the wonderful city of) Helsinki, we decided that we'd like to see at least parts of the finnish nature aswell! Therefore we took part of this hiking adventure through the Nuuksion national park!
    We went there in October, which might have been the best time possible since autumn had already done its work! All the leaves were shining in the brightest colors, which was absolutely breathtaking!
    Our guide could answer every question we had and explained a lot himself, so we had an awesome insight into finnish nature and also culture.
    I would definitely recommend booking this trip, especially if your trip to Finnland basically only consists of being in the city!

    The Tallinn day-long excursion was worth every moment, from the hotel shuttle to and from the ferry, to the excellent guide service in Tallinn. The communication with Zoe at Helsinki Tour was superb and ensured that the entire experience was excellent! Unfortunately - for them - two others had to cancel at the last minute, so it was a solo tour with the guide, Julia, who was very informative and made the history come alive. I highly recommend the trip to anyone interested in Tallinn and Estonia's history and modern day culture.

    It was a highlight of our trip in Helsinki and Tallinn. Marie was so knowledgeable and could hold a very decent conversation with depth. We had a very good one day trip here. And we decided to visit Estonia for our next journey. The taxi driver was very kind to give us a brief tour when we came back to Helsinki. It did save us a lot of time on transportation. The whole experience was 5 starts for sure.

    We did this tour with Emek and he was so informed not only about the architecture but about the history, culture and political policy of Finland. we saw some really interesting landmark buildings. Emek had a great sense of humour, this combined with his knowledge, manner and love of the Finnish people and their culture made this tour one of the most memorable and enjoyable we have ever done.

    Try to book this tour early in your Helsinki stay, as Emek’s excellent orientation will enhance your time in that beautiful city. He is knowledgeable, easygoing, friendly, and gets his (purposely small) groups into places most tourists would not get to see otherwise. I recommend him unreservedly.
