What people are saying about Helsinki

The park was delightful, especially how we experienced it in early December with light snow, frozen lakes and scenery to die for. But, the best part was Mikhail, the guide. I left a lot richer in knowledge about the surroundings, a low more aware of animal footprints and with lovely conversation throughout the hike. Both Nuuksio and Sipoonkorpi national parks were wonderful experiences and I truly made lifelong memories walking through them.

Emek is so knowledgeable and meanwhile interesting. He knows everything. There's not a boring moment in the trip. It was -15 degree Celsius that day but Emek took care of us, he adjusted the trip to the most comfortable way and we enjoyed it a lot.

Great tour! Doing it by tram covers a greater area of the city. Our guide Emek - with his deep knowledge of a city planner - explained us the history and the specific’s and background of the different neighborhoods. I can not recommend him enough!

It was an awesome trip in the nature of Finland. The guide Mikhail has detailed knowledge about Finland and it's nature. And I have to say, he's a relaxed cool guy. Really recommendable tour.

Fantastic day out. Helsinki is fabulous. The ferry has good restaurants and shops
