  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Matti is an excellent guide, and gave us a great overview of some Finnish history. I also appreciated his suggestions on where to get salmon soup and other goodies. It was around freezing, but windy, and I wish I had dressed warmer, as I did get pretty darn chilled, but other than that, a great experience! I particularly found the Central Library fascinating. What a place!

    We had a great time. We met our guide at 10am sharp an wandered the streets of Helsinki for almost 3 hours. Learned a lot about the complicated history of this wonderful city, ate some lovely food and saw some beautiful site. The only down side was that we travelled on a Sunday and a lot of places are closed then.

    A good way too see the sights of Helsinki, helps you get your bearings. Just be aware there are two Hop on Hop off buses run in Helsinki so make sure you get the right one, they do share a few stops beside each other.

    A lovely ride and the educational audio was super useful. As many have already said, the time allocated to visit the Rock Church is not enough for you to actually walk there and buy a ticket. Please listen to feedback and amend your itinerary. You can easily make the tour 2 hours instead of one hour 45 minutes so that people can actually visit a place and get some value
    Otherwise it’s quite a nice quick way to sight see from the bus

    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!

    Pick up was on-time at 10:00am from a downtown hotel. Tour guide (Ray) was pleasant and informative.

    The first two hours covered local sites around Helsinki by van with several stops to walk around (Sibelius Park, Modern Library and two prominent churches).

    We had about 45 minutes for lunch on our own before taking the ferry to Suomenlinna fortress. We spent about 90 minutes walking around the fortress before boarding the ferry back to Helsinki, arriving at the dock by 3:15pm where the tour ended. There was no ride back to the hotel, but we were only several blocks away.

    A few good things to know about the tour. The morning was flexible and we changed plans several times as we found churches in-service. Also, it is a pretty long walk at the fortress over rough cobblestone. The weather in February was cold, so wearing good shoes and warm clothes (coat, hat, gloves, etc.) is a must.

    Overall it was a very good tour and a great way to get our bearings in Helsinki on our first day in town.

    Jeff was a nice guy. And he knew a ton about the country and the wildlife. The natural park was beautiful and the small town was great. It was a very low stress and enjoyable day. Highly recommend.
