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.

Easy to download app and start tour :) i enjoyed being able to walk around at my own pace while learning about the history of different sites. Navigation was quite difficult through the app though!

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!!

Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide and driver.
