Description

Porvoo is a significant national treasure of Finland and well worth a scenic countryside drive to one of the most photographed riverside warehouses that once stored goods making their way to destinations across Europe.

The walking tour through old Porvoo up to the 13th century Porvoo cathedral tells a captivating story of local legends, history and culture. The settlement in the Porvoo region began around the same time as the original wooden church was built. The Old Town Hall Square is at the heart of the city.

As an important cornerstone in the history of Finland, fortuitously old Porvoo has not been touched in conflicts of the past and instead flourished into a popular town known for a number charming cafes, restaurants and riverside red houses.

Tallinn with an expert
My wife and I had a day in Tallinn and it was wonderful. Our guide, Triin Jensen, was full of energy and provided a super understanding of the city. We only had a few hours but Triin found a way to get us to all the best spots and provide a great history of the many sites. We were so fortunate to have Triin as our guide and I would recommend her for any tour of Tallinn.

We booked our tour with very short notice, but anyway we got it. The guide, Eva-Maria, was super. Her stories about places what we visited during our tour, were interesting and succulent.
