Lesley was fantastic! Our family of four really enjoyed meeting her and learning insights into Finland. We appreciate that she was able to customize a tour for us to include the things we wanted to do most. We thoroughly enjoyed baking with Klaus, a great way to end the long day. Lesley kept in contact prior to the day, was flexible and it was a highlight of our trip!
