We had a wonderful time touring Helsinki and Porvoo. Our tour guide Finbaar was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and easy-going. I loved that he gave us the freedom to control the tour to see things at our pace. We had 5 hours to explore as we wished. He encouraged us to roll down the window as often as we wanted to capture pictures. He made sure that we got pictures with both my husband and I in front of the sights. He truly wanted to ensure that we had an enjoyable time and got the most out of our tour!

Emek is an engaging and very knowledgeable tour guide. His obvious love of the city made the tour a really interesting and enjoyable way to see Helsinki . And I say that after we completed the tour in almost blizzard conditions. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.

The activity was very interesting. On the other hand, we had to move seats because a box was supposed to give us. The translation did not work. Just a small maintenance problem but for the rest the service is very good.

Very convenient and interesting to be able to have a global vision of the city.

Everything OK! Advice, don't use an electric car in winter!!
