A Recent Review of this tour

Johan took us on a most enjoyable tour of the city and outside to Porvoo. Johan is a particularly nice and interesting person to spend the day with; full of interesting and varied talks through the day. The highlight though was the walk through the spruce forest described as "We do a voluntary forest walk on a narrow path". With Johan this is transformed as he describes the flora and fauna as we walk along - it was an unexpected highlight of the day.
