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.

    David took my mother (senior) on a lovely hike through the woods. He was very communicative prior to the day of the hike and even suggested another date when the weather appeared rainy. He was flexible, down to earth, knowledgeable about nature, and a good cook (lovely soup).

    I enjoyed this tour a lot. It's an excellent destination choice, Porkkala is a beautiful place! It was very convenient to get picked up at and be brought back to Helsinki Central Station. The small group size (8) worked perfect for me and Jeff (the guide) created a friendly and easy-going atmosphere. It was also very informative, Jeff told a lot about local berries, mushrooms etc. I only wish there was a little bit more time to walk around Porkkala independently (an hour instead of half-hour?) During this visit to Helsinki I did not have time left to join the other tours with Taiga Times but that's definitely on my bucket list for the next time I visit Helsinki. Thank you very much , Jeff and Kiia, for the great experience!

    Hoda was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw the major sites and it was a pleasant stroll over a couple of hours. I went on a Saturday and some things, like Uspenski Cathedral weren't open, so other days might be better. It felt a bit slow to start but everyone seemed happy by the end down at the waterfront.

    We had a great time at the Redrib Experience. We learned so much about the city & it was cool to see Helsinki from a different perspective. It did not feel very "touristy" and I loved that! our guide was friendly, passionate and funny! Thank you again!

    In a small group of 7 we left downtown Helsinki for the national park. Our guide Mikhail had a trained background in Zoology that enhanced the trip though his deep knowledge of the flora and fauna. We followed a route that returned from a different location so a well thought out plan. Many picture taking opportunities at the lakes or in the woods. Highly recommended.

    Leif and Olli and Kapua were amazing. We had a ton of fun cruising around the seas. Definitely recommend taking one of their boating options: we chose the offshore experience and it was outstanding.

    Not that kind of magical mushroom experience, but a fun, beautiful excursion to the backwoods of Finland. This is a must for any nature lover who wants to get out of the city for a day. Jeff was a hospitable and knowledgable guide who took us on our journey through Liesjarvi National Park. He taught us about different kinds of mushrooms, and how to identify the edible ones. On top of that, we harvested a variety of berries that were plentiful.

    We hiked through the mossy forest until we reached our camp along the lake where we cooked our forage of chantrelles and porcinis over an open fire in a wooden teepee, as Jeff prepared lunch of salmon soup, rye bread, and blueberry juice.

    Such a lovely day and special memory of Finland!

    Thank you Taiga Times!

    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.

    The amazing snow-mobiling experience more than exceeded all my expectations. Kenneth & Anders immediately made me feel extremely welcome; in fact I felt more like an old friend than a customer. Everything you need is supplied by Burn Out City and they really do take care of you. Kenneth has an immense sense of humour and shared such interesting bits of local history as the journey progressed. The lunch stop was very relaxed and provided a moment to sit and enjoy the stunning vast expanses of the frozen archipelago - a truly magical place.
    Thank you Kenneth & Anders for an experience which I will always treasure. Keep doing what you are doing and spreading the beauty of the Finnish land/sea scape.

    Whist we were in Helsinki for Easter, we took the opportunity to undertake this challenge!
    The weather was good and wind was in our favor. Leif is an excellent instructor. As we are non-swimmers, he was assured us that this was no barrier to taking part in this experience. He was right! He provided all the gear we needed and gently guided us into the water. Within minutes, we were afloat and able to even relax! We had as much time as we needed in the water. It was a most uplifting experience. Equally fascinating were the insights and stories Leif told us about how the suits are used as part of lifesaving equipment (with very short times to deploy them in real emergencies). I could only imagine what that could be like after the leisurely time we had in comparison! Also, we were given lifesaving survival tips, which are invaluable. You can tell that Leif is a true professional with lots of expertise in this field. All in All, a fantastic experience and we would thoroughly recommend it to others. Thank you Leif!
