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

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
