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.

    Freezing weather but warm experience with the tour. Driver was punctual in meeting with us at our hotel. For some reason, the other party on the tour did not show up. After waiting in the car for 20 mins, the driver took us straight to the ferry terminal and the boarding process was super smooth and easy afterwards. Local guide Julia was knowledgeable and conducted the tour with comfortable pace, and accommodating to our need for a stop at a coffee shop. We were picked up by a driver to go to the terminal for the return trip without any issue. It feels that communication between the travel agent and the local travel company in Tallin could be more timely.

    Our tour was 20 April 2024. First I must recognize Zoe. Thank you for rescheduling our tour. All around exceptional customer service. Cesar was a very knowledgeable and professional guide. We toured Helsinki by Sprinter Van, foot and ferry. Cesar was personable. Cesar made sure we saw many interesting and important sites buildings, library, Olympic stadium and a couple of local shops. Cesar is very knowledgeable about the Finnish Culture. He taught us a few Finnish words. Kitos thank you, the only word I remember. We took a short break at the Old Market. My husband and I enjoyed talking over a cup of coffee. We took the ferry to Suomenlinna. Cesar told us the history of the Fort.
    I highly recommend this tour.

    This tour was really good value for money. A lovely cruise around Helsinki's islands. The only thing that could be improved is the commentary provided over the loudspeakers. There were a lot of silences when the recording could have been mentioning things like how many people live on the islands, or what the bridge is that is being built, or what happens to the boats when the sea freezes, etc - just interesting little bits of information. Even in three languages, there would be time to add more commentary.
    But we did enjoy the trip and I would recommend it, especially given the price.

    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.

    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.

    This is a great way to see Helsinki. You get to sail through the archipelago and you even get to see some ice-breakers on the way back and they have a little cafe inside too.

    The tour was really informative and the staff were really friendly and helpful.

    Leif runs a a highly professional organisation. His attention to detail and his consideration for his clients is superb. Excellent. From the moment we set off on the RIB boat, the serene beauty of the Finnish archipelago took my breath away. Leif, my knowledgable guide, provided fascinating insights about the local wildlife and ecosystems, making the journey both educational and awe-inspiring. This nature reserve island tour was an unforgettable adventure that allowed me to connect with nature in a profound way.

    We thank Delia for the informative tour. The pick up and drop off service was also efficient. It could be nicer if we could stay for a couple more hours as we didn’t have enough time for a full meal to experience the nice atmosphere.

    I think this is a very personal preference.We had perfect weather's nice crew and a clean ship. We could hear the audio without a problem. But I saw more than one person dozing off by the end.It was a little boring for me, because we had walked the entire city seascape one day and had covered many sites ,albeit not from a boat.
    We used Royal cruises. I would recommend it, but it wa s not a highlight.

    Great bud your and an even better boat tour. The boat is more like a ferry boat with a too dark, bar, and restaurant as well as rest rooms. It would be helpful if your website listed more information on the bus route stops. We misse stop 1 and waited for 20 minutes at stop 2 but could have walked to the next stop if we knew where it was
