A very full and interesting three hour tour--use of the local trams was a great way to see and understand the city and understand its history. The description of the tour is spot on and it great to fit so much in to our time. This is a great tour for coming in on a cruise ship for the day. I would highly recommend Olga's tour.
We had an amazing time with Olga! She was all the time very focused on keep in us well informed and entertained. She showed us everything that was important and keep the time under control. We did make it back to the ship on time and safe. I totally recommend this Tour with Olga!

Olga is five star!!! Her walking tour of Helsinki showcased the best of the city's rich history and its vibrant present. We are left with a deep appreciation of the city and her people because of Olga's depth of knowledge and her obvious passion for the city and her strong belief in Helsinki's future. Thank you Olga for our tour and your kindness. Come visit us in Portland , Oregon even though our tour will not be nearly as good as yours!

Olga was a great tour guide for our day trip to Helsinki. She was very helpful in deciding to do our tour on bikes to see the city sights. We explored the many churches of modern design to the classic interiors. Olga took us to a couple of food markets to see what the locals enjoy, even seeing the caned packed meat like bear, reindeer, and the fresh herring & seafood counters, made a culinary wonder of it all. I highly recommend Olga for your Helsinki visit! Olga, Thx you for our tour in your city!

Olga arrived on time for the tour and was very friendly and personable. She took the time to explain interesting sights and architecture of the city as well as dispel some of the myths I had about the history of the area. We had engaging discussions about the culture, language and history on the area. Olga also went out of her way to help with the train ticket I needed for my return and extended the tour by an extra hour to show me some interesting sights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Raj. It was my pleasure to be you guide!

Olga was pretty knowledgeable about Helsinki. She was late showing up for our tour. We told her at the very beginning that some of us couldn't walk very fast, but, in spite of that, she would walk on ahead and leave most of our group (8 of us) behind, and then turn around and explain sites only to those who were in earshot at the time. It was pretty frustrating for some of the slower folks in the group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tim, I'm sorry to get to know that our tour in Helsinki on a wonderful sunny day was a cause of frustration and I apologize for any inconveniences it might have caused you. The tour was consisting of walking parts and that is why it might have been a bit tough for your group. I was slightly late because of transportation issues to this port but I included some extra time into the tour due to this. I do remember your nice group and I hope that all of you are doing very well. -Olga
We had a great time with Olga. She gave has a very good experience in a few hours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to guide your wonderful family in Helsinki!

Olga was personable, knowledgeable, and flexible in responding to our interests and questions. For example, when we found out there was a free concert in the Music Center, she was willing to let us take 15 minutes and listen to a Brandenburg Concerto, even though it wasn't on the schedule. Olga arranged for us to finish up in Market Square, convenient to shopping and more sights. It was a very nice introduction to Helsinki.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a real pleasure to be a guide for this excellent group of tourists who were curious, friendly and very positive people! I`m very glad that they have enjoyed their stay in Helsinki! - Olga
I had a wonderful morning with Olga getting to know Helsinki. She is a very interesting and knowledgable guide, and I felt like I was walking around with a friend. I learnt many things about the city and its buildings and monuments. The tour with Olga was also a great introduction to public transport, shopping and the layout of the city, which is what I needed as I was staying alone in Helsinki for a further three weeks. I felt very relaxed and really appreciated Olga's warmth and kindness. Thanks again!

Olga is an amazing tour guide. She adjusted her plan on the fly to take us to see special requests (Sibelius monument). She included places not in the standard guide books (chapel of silence). We wanted local color, and she gave it her all: Taking us on the tram system, through the markets and shops. She is extremely knowledgeable and educated, and very friendly. We will always have great memories of Helsinki because of her.
