Sarianna is an excellent guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Helsinki. She is knowledgeable about the city, Finnish history and contemporary life. She was able to answer all of our questions and was very accommodating in assisting me with transporting my wife in our manual wheelchair. We highly recommend Sarianna.
