I had a 6hr layover in Helsinki and wanted a different experience since Sarianna had already taken me on an amazing City tour. This time she planned a trip to a national park near the airport. After picking me we drove to the park, met up with a park ranger and the 3 of us went canoeing, walked the forest & picked wild mushrooms. We then went to a hut, built a fire & cooked local foods, ate, talked and laughed. After a stop at the local nature museum it was back to the airport. AMAZING & unexpected.

What an amazing day in Helsinki. I took time between a long connecting flight to spend 7 amazing hours touring this amazing city. Thank you for showing me the city and helping root me in the culture, history, architecture and food. A perfect day.
La visite de la Forteresse de Suomenlinna s'est faite sur la neige, c'est un lieu poétique où le temps s'arrête pendant de la visite, paysage superbe marquant de l'histoire de la Finlande. La visite s'est poursuivie avec la découverte de la la gallerie des beaux-arts Ateneum, le musée possède une très belle collection de la peinture finlandaise. Sarianna est une guide passionnée, les explications reçues furent très intéressantes et enrichissantes. Merci de m'avoir donner l'envie de revenir en Finlande !
Superbe visite de la ville d'Helsinki ! Beaucoup d'explications de la part de Sarianna sur les traditions culturelles, sur l'histoire, et sur la situation géopolitique et religieuse de la Finlande. J'ai appris énormément de choses et découverts des lieux magnifiques.
We had an excellent and most interesting tour with Sarianna (& driver), we covered a lot of ground, saw a great deal and Helsinki was one of our favourite stops. Sarianna was knowledgeable, very pleasant and a most hospitable host for her city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alvina, thank you for the 5-star rating. Lovely to have hosted your wonderful party! My best regards to all, hope to see you again.

I organized a group of 20 from California. We were in Helsinki for one day on our cruise. Sarianna was outstanding. She gave our group a full day tour of Helsinki that was a highlight of our trip. We loved seeing the open air markets with local vendors. She was extremely knowledgeable, very easy to understand and everyone in our group loved her as our tour guide. I highly recommend Sarianna as your tour guide in Helsinki.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Scott and thank you so much for the lovely feedback! Our day was a success and your group wonderful. Welcome back!
Luanne WebbCary, NC, United States
We had the best time with Sarianna! Our family was visiting Helsinki on July 13th, 2019 and booked a private tour with her. She was so knowledgeable, personable, and easy! She took us to PorVoo, a medieval town and also all over the city of Helsinki! We loved her kind spirit and her beautiful country. I would highly recommend her for any one going to Finland! My family loved it so much, we plan to return someday!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Luanne, thank you for the wonderful feedback. My best regards to your family and you are more than welcome to come back. It would awesome, thank you and all the best! Sarianna

Michael S.United States
Sarianna gave us a terrific tour of Helsinki and Porvoo. We had a group of six, some of whom wanted more shopping and less touring and others who wanted more touring and little shopping and Sarianna managed to make us all happy. She really explained life and customs of Finland in a fun and interesting way. She is wonderful! Also, if you go to Porvoo go to Brumberg chocolate. Who knew Finland had such delicious chocolate. We brought a lot home, but, unfortunately, it is disappearing fast!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael. Thank you for your great feedback, our day was a lot of fun! Please thank Sheila and all other friends for the superbe tips for a middle-eastern country I am about to visit. If you plan to come back please let me know! All my best wishes to you Micheal, Sheila and the whole group.
A wonderful tour with Sarianna. Ever so helpful for a quick switch from the scheduled van to her car to accommodate our WC passenger. Sarianna's knowledge and passion for her home city along with her pleasant personality made for a great tour. Truly appreciated the day and would highly recommend to all. Especially those who may have disability issues. Thanks again. S Matheson

Sarianna was our guide in Helsinki today and we had a wonderful tour! She tailored our experience to our physical, culinary and historical tastes expertly. The market, the library(!), and the national church were standouts. We highly recommend her! 5 out of 5 stars

Sarianna is an excellent guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Helsinki. She is knowledgeable about the city, Finnish history and contemporary life.

Angela TrustyUnited States
Fantastic shore excursion in Helsinki with Sarianna. She arranged for a private driver and we visited the Temppeliaukio (Rock) Church, Sibelius Park, Market Square, the Cathedral, shopping. Later we took the water taxi to and Suomenlinna Fortress. We didn't originally plan to see the submarine but she was able to arrange that too. She is very knowledgeable about the area and friendly. She taught us a lot about Finnish culture. It was a perfect day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Angela, it was lovely to spend the day with you and your party. Thank you for your kind feedback and I wish you and your nice family all the best!

Sarianna went above and beyond to make our trip exceptional! Her professionalism started before the trip even began by helping our group immensely with advice and ideas during our planning process. Once we arrived she made sure every detail was accounted for with her amazing customer focus. She was always thinking ahead and her ultimate objective was to make us look successful. We will 100% stay in contact with Sarianna and she will be our guide when we return, guaranteed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Devon! The group was so friendly and it felt easy to carry out the interesting programme. My pleasure to have been your guide here. All the best and hope to see you again.

Ronald FriedmanUnited States
Sarianna notified us a few days in advance that we wouldn't be able to see the synagogue but we would go to cemetery instead. We started with general sites, including an early stop at a market because we thought it might rain. A speaker met us at the cemetary and gave a wonderful tour. We ended with an additional stop at market for a few last minute purchases - this is obviously the advantage of a small group tour. Great Day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ronald, it was indeed a great day and I am glad to have hosted you. Thank you for the great feedback and give my regards to your wife as well.
We were a group of 14 and despite the rain we had the best day with Sarianna. We headed out to Porvoo which was the most beautiful place and to be honest if we had only gone there we would of been just fine. However, Helsinki is the most beautiful place so not to be missed. Our day was well organised and we really had a great overview of Helsinki in the short time we were there. Great day thank you Sarianna.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Helen, my best regards and many thanks to you and the whole group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hans, thank you for your visit to Helsinki. I am happy you enjoyed our tour. It was nice to meet you and your family, welcome back. Greetings to the Netherlands!
