Tour: Hiking in Vallisaari island /Kuninkaansaari and shopping, Helsinki, Etelä-Suomen, Finland
Date: Jul 12/18

Laila was an absolute delight to work with prior to our arrival in Helsinki. She made sure we were on schedule and that we fully understood the meeting location, which she described perfectly coming off of our cruise ship. She really worked hard to understand our goals for the trip, and since I have two little girls ages 10/8, she hit a home run with our hike to a nearby island a short 15 minute ferry ride. After our hike, we walked and shopped as Laila gracefully explained the main points of the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marcelo! It was such a delight to spend the day with you and your absolutely beautiful and fun family. Whenever you need help and guidance for visiting Finland again, you know where to find me! Best regards to your ladies!

This was an excellent way to orient and learn about the history and culture of Helsinki. Laila was a thoughtful guide who is passionate about her country. She was responsive to our requests and nothing was a bother! Laila came with maps, restaurant options, tram information and more. I would not hesitate recommending her to show you her city. Jane

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jane, it was truly a good day with you! Now I hope that you will see the Northern lights in Lapland and enjoy your stay the fullest. Hopefully you come back some day to enjoy Finland in summer as well. All Best wishes!

Laila is an EXCEPTIONAL guide. We spent a lovely day in Helsinki with her. She went out of her way to make our tour fun and informative for all members of our group (ages ranging from 5-70)!! She is so kind and warm hearted she felt more like family then someone we had just met. Her love of Finland and was conveyed with the information and stories she shared and she made our day lots of fun. The hours we spent together flew by and it was hard to say good bye.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle, Thank you so much for your kind words. You have an exceptionally fine family and it was a truly nice day. I wish you all a year full of light, joy and happiness!
