A Recent Review of this tour

This was an excellent experience thanks to Johan, who is a first-class guide and conversationalist. The primary purpose of the tour was to visit the house of Jean Sibelius, but we also wanted to see the very charming city called Porvoo, which was not on Johan's stated itinerary. However, Johan was extremely flexible in his approach and accommodated our request, so that we were able to visit the city, which was a highlight. All in all I would highly recommend Johan as a guide - top notch.
