We have used Tours by Locals all over the world & have never been disappointed. Maria was the most incredible guide we've ever had. The 1st thing she did when we met was provide us w/ wifi! Traveling w/ 2 boys (11 & 14) this was a godsend! Sofia was professional & catered to our needs. We wanted to see things off the beaten path of Helsinki & that is exactly what we did. In addition to popular spots, we visited a local grocery store, flea market & some shops that we would not had known of. THE BEST!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Heather ! I am really happy to read that you and the rest of your group enjoyed my tour. I try hard to fulful the needs of the modern traveller and nowadays this absolutely includes providing a wifi hotspot ( off my phone ) throughout the tour. I think all guides should do this. The places we visited off the beaten track were thanks also to your own initiative so I cannot take all the credit. Enjoy the flea market treasures you found and regards to California ! All the best, Maria

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!
