A Recent Review of this tour

Maria was a fabulous guide — knowledgeable as well as entertaining. She brought us to all the prominent highlights of Helsinki while providing key points on each. In addition we were given time to explore Heldinki's wonderful outdoor markets. All in all, one of the best tours we've had.
