Private Helsink Tour: Make the most of your day in Helsinki.
Helsinki is a beautiful and interesting town between east and west in Europe. In six hours I can show you the high lights of Helsinki and also a visit to Porvoo, the second oldest town in Finland from the 14th century. Be my guest.
If you want a shorter or longer tour I can arrange that also.
Meet at Cruise Ship Terminal.
I will meet you by the cruise terminal with my car. When I know the ship you are coming on I will advice you on the exact meeting point. You decide when you want to start the tour. I will be there on time.
This is your day, so I would like you to see the things that appeal most to you. But I would personally recommend to see the Market Square, the Senate Square, take a walk on the Esplanades and a visit in the Rock Church ( now with a extra fee 3 euros ) well know for its architecture and a ride by the sea side. Also the covered market in Hakaniemi to see what people in Helsinki are buying for food.
Lunch at a wide variety of restaurants, according to your taste.
Or maybe a salmon sandwitch at the covered market.
The time allows also for a visit Porvoo, our second oldest town in Finland. A beautiful small town by a river. Cobble stone streets and a small town athmosfere. You will love it.
I wil tell you about us Finns what we do and not not do and how our economy is doing.

Meeting location: I will meet you at the cruise ship terminal. When I know which ship you are coming on I can advice the exact meeting point. I will have sign with your name on it or what ever name you prefer I should use.

Ralf was a wonderful guide. He is very knowledgeable, interesting and has a good sense of humor as well. We learned a lot about Finland, it's history and its people. We visited Porvoo and many of the popular sites in Helsinki and walked around the city, markets, esplanade and historic buildings. I highly recommend touring this lovely city with Ralf. He's delightful.
