A Recent Review of this tour

Cathrine was great. We had a 8 hour layover in Helsinki and Catherine made sure we got the most out of it. We landed 30 minutes early and Catherine was waiting for us. Her knowledge of Finland's history was second to none. Her English was perfect. You can not go wrong booking a tour with Cathrine. We even got a nice surprise when we looked in our bag back on the plane. Cathrine hid some chocolates for us. What a great day we had.
