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!

The highlight of my trip. Learned so much from an extremely knowledgeable and communicative guide. Want to live in Helsinki now. It has had a fascinating history and is looking forward to the future.
