Great guide who adjusted the tour to accommodate what we had seen on previous tour. As requested we visited local neighborhoods and saw Art Deco buildings, the Orthodox Cathedral, saw embassies, rode the trolley, and experienced the city on foot. It was a lovely tour with an excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Linda and John, Thank you for the kind words! Just a fantastic day with you. I felt so happy the rest of the day because I was a bit worried that you had already experienced so much in Helsinki and I am happy to know that I did take you to the right places, local areas that you have not yet seen. Be well both of you, it was so nice to meet you and I wish you both a lot of light, happiness and many adventures to be in the future. Take care, warmest regards, Laila

Laila was spectacular! She was very knowledgeable about Helsinki and Finnish culture. We visited a wonderful restaurant for lunch. She was like a long-lost sister. Thank you, Laila, for a wonderful visit to Helsinki.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kiitos Jennifer! It was an amazing day and I am still touched by your knowledge about Finland and I learned myself so much about the Finnish imigrants in US. Soul sisters indeed!

Laila was the most welcoming and wonderful guide. She kindly emailed me about the upcoming heat wave in Helsinki so we would come prepared. She is so enthusiast about Finland. Her depth of knowledge and history is outstanding. What a lovely person and we were a group of four and everyone raved about her tour. I would reccommend her for any tour. Trish from San Francisco
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Trish, I felt privileged to be chosen to be your guide in Helsinki! I wish you all the best and be well, you all elegant ladies and the young man!

Our family had a great tour with Laila. She was knowledgeable and friendly. She was open to our desires to spend more or less time at any place. One of the things I most liked about her was she understood that sometimes we needed a break from hearing more tour information and were ready some quiet time between sights. All in all, I would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for your kind words and the review. Your review also taught me that it is important to have the brakes between all information and talking. I wish you and your family all the best!
This was an excellent way to orient and learn about the history and culture of Helsinki. Laila was a thoughtful guide who is passionate about her country. She was responsive to our requests and nothing was a bother! Laila came with maps, restaurant options, tram information and more. I would not hesitate recommending her to show you her city. Jane
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jane, it was truly a good day with you! Now I hope that you will see the Northern lights in Lapland and enjoy your stay the fullest. Hopefully you come back some day to enjoy Finland in summer as well. All Best wishes!
