This was by far one of the highlights of our trip. The guide and tour could not have been done any better. We highly recommend this guide and tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Yes, we had a nice tour/ art and nature. The birch is a beautiful tree, ab. 10% of the Finnish forest is birch. Welcome again, Johan.

Johan was a good guide. Perhaps there is just not much to see in Helsinki. We spent a great deal of time at a local market while he waited for us. We also spent about an hour walking in a park. Both of these we could have done on our own!

Johan is not a guide, he is a very good teacher. He knows every detail of the city and its history. Excelent !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you ! It is the company which makes it...........Yes, we had a nice time, all OK for the rest of your journey? Well, I like to tell others about this unknown country up here at the 60 degree north, we are not precisely the center of the world. To you all good from here close to the Arctic circle. Reg. Johan.

Kathy NewtonUnited States
Johan took us to a church that was not yet open, gave little background information and when we asked questions, he gave brief answers, not adding any points of interest. At the conclusion of the tour he asked us to pay for parking. We also paid for our own lunch. The fee for his one day guided tour was the same as two days in St. Petersburg. The guide in St Petersburg shared a wealth of historical, cultural and general information. Johan did none of this. So you can understand our disappointment.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I feel sorry to disappoint guests but such can happen. Everybody can of course look at the comments about me on these TbL. sides. Anyway, I learn from this. Hope though my guests gained something of the tour. Welcome back sometime. Reg. Johan B.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are sorry about Kathy´s experience and we trust Johan will learn about this experience. Is important to mention that parking and lunch were mentioned as extras in the booking confirmation.

My son and I had a wonderful time touring Helsinki with our guide Yohan. Yohan was such a gentleman and very knowledgeable. My son didn't feel well with a cold yet wanted to see the sights. Yohan was very accommodating stopping at a drug store so he could pick up some medicine. We had a great day and would highly recommend to anyone. I give a 5 star rating
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank yoy Tricia&son. Yes, we had a nice but too short time together, next time maybe longer stay !? Sorry I cannot serve you&husband in June you asked for, booked whole summer. All good, Johan.

This was a great tour, totally adapted to our interests. Johan could not make it, so he send his friend instead. He was great! This was part of an extensive trip, and my boys say it was their favorite day. Take the ferry to the fort in the harbor. It has lots of hidden gems that my boys loved, including a submarine and a military museum.
Alexander C.United States
A great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Johan was able to show me some wonderful places throughout Helsinki and taught me quite a lot about each of them. Johan was very personable and I had an wonderful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alex, we had a nice time! Reg. Johan.
