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.

    Loved the history of the Old Town and had a great tour guide which made the experience that much more enjoyable. Her knowledge was extensive and she was happy to answer questions. The preservation of the walled town was to be commended. would loved to have spent more time there! A 'not to to be missed' holiday destination.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend. The guide, Darius, sent a message confirming the tour shortly after booking and then sent a reminder the night before. I was able to request a hotel pickup and he was prompt for the pickup. Two other ladies had signed up for the tour as well, one from Dublin and one from Paris, both friendly, lovely people. Very nice company for the tour. Darius is very knowledgeable and presented a lot of historical and cultural information, not just of Porvoo, but also of Finland. He happily answered all of our questions. Also Darius has a sense of humor and had us all laughing/giggling throughout our time together. :-) The pace of the tour is very comfortable. I never felt like he was rushing us. We even stopped to enjoy a coffee/tea break. The only thing I might suggest is maybe 15-20 minutes free time to explore the cute shops in the market square. There were a few shops where Darius encouraged us to go in and look if we'd like but none of us were apparently interested in those particular places. So a few minutes of free time to look at other shops would have been nice. And maybe all we needed to do was ask for a few extra minutes, I'm not sure. But anyway, it was a super enjoyable tour with an excellent guide. If Darius had other tours around the Helsinki area, I would have signed up for all of them! :-)

    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.

    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.

    Fantastic tour — highly recommended. Emek has a perfectly planned walk to show historical and cultural sites around Helsinki. What sets his tour apart is to weave in the historical significance of the buildings on the tour. And he’s quite adept at delving into a lot of different topics. Plus he keeps his tours small so it has a nice intimate feel.

    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!

    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.

    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.
