This was our first experience with Tours by Locals and we were very satisfied. Ralf was friendly and moved at a good pace for us. He gave us a lot of "life in Helsinki " information which we found interesting. Many thanks!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the five stars and the nice weather you brought with you. I tried to remember who was the Finnish man who won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences 2016 and it was Bengt Holmström together with Mr Oliver Hart from USA. And these uniq wagons we have in Finland: Russian royal carriage stock to survive anywhere in the world. They are in the Railway Museum in Hyvinkää. All the best to you and your wife, Ralf

Ralf was extremely knowledgeable about his country and city and we felt we got an understanding of Finland and its people in a short amount of time. He was flexible and molded the tour to our interests. We would definitely use Ralf again and recommend him to friends who want a great walking tour.

Ralf was a very engaging and interesting guide on our walk this morning. He brought the key central parts of the city to life and we enjoyed his company very much. He is very knowledgeable about the country's history and social traditions so we learnt a lot on this our first visit. Highly recommended. .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a pleasure to show you Helsinki. And with you I discovered a new ( for me new ) coffee shop in Helsinki :-). Watch this site http://aurora.fmi.fi/public_service/ to know more about norther lights in Finnish Lapland. Best regards, Ralf
