A Recent Review of this tour

Laila was simply awesome - right from the moment we booked the tour till she gave us a goodbye hug - she just blew us away with her insights on Helsinki. She kept into mind that my senior father couldn't walk a whole lot but also managed to just about show us everything we should see in the 3 hours we had. She has an abundance of knowledge on the local history buildings and events... I would recommend her in a heartbeat ! so full of life !! Loved the tour experience with Laila - HIGHLY RECOMMEND
