Julie FotosUnited States
Wow! what a treasure for your company. Extremely knowledgeable about Finland and spoke fluent English.She oozed pride when she took us to the Olympic Tower(what a spectacular view of the city),Sibelius Monument,Esplanade Park,Market Square, the War Museum and an area one can get a better view of Suomenlinna(Sea Fortress). Before the end of our time with her,she told us places to visit on our own.She informed our next tour guide,Maarit,that George wanted a special Finnish entree.Maarit found it,yummy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie,Lorraine and George: Glad you enjoyed the tour. I agree, the Olympic Stadium is fabulous -its often the first place I take my TV and journalist groups so that they can get their first general overview of the city. The War Museum is one of my favourite museums so I also enjoyed taking you there. Glad that Maarit was able to make use of my tip and find George a restaurant serving the Meat and Macaroni casserole of his childhood that he so remembered.Best wishes to all!
