Recently in Helsinki for one day only and booked private walking tour. Both Mike and Anna appeared relaxed and happy to accommodate the various abilities of our group of seven. It felt as if they could adapt the tour to our interests which were to see and get a feel for Helsinki and learn a little history.
It was easy to meet up with them, they used microphones throughout the tour so easy to hear everything, they were happy to answer our questions and find a seat for one less able walker, and made sure we headed off in the right direction at the end of the tour.
Couldn't fault it at all & all the group want to say well done and a big thank you to Mike & Anna, we have happy memories of our only day in Helsinki that we will keep for ever!

Great way to learn about Helsinki!
Anna was great, giving some really interesting history about Helsinki while also providing insight on local the customs and culture. It was a terrific way to get oriented with the city. Thanks Anna!

An informative and interesting tour.
We had a great tour yesterday in the historic centre with Mike. We went to many different places and we learnt a lot of history on Helsinki. Definitely worth doing so you can see many places in a short time. Very well organised. I would recommend
