Emek was an excellent guide who took my group of 4 total to the many sites of Helsinki. He was very informative and spoke perfect English. it was very laid back and we never felt rushed and we were able to ask as many questions as we pleased. if you have a short time in Helsinki I would highly recommend this tour.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! The tour was just brilliant! Emek really knows his stuff, it was so interesting I could have listened to him for days. The small group was a big plus, too. Without this tour I would have missed so much... it contributed a lot to my wonderful stay in Helsinki. Book it!
