About
A 4-hour visit to the idyllic town of Porvoo with well-preserved wooden houses. Tour begins and ends at your cruise port in Helsinki.  See the red warehouses on the riverbank and the beautiful medieval cathedral. A town plan from the Middle Ages, the low small houses, picturesque yards and narrow streets form a historically unique wooden town milieu. There will be some free time for a walk in the Old Town with delightful shops and artisans' workshops.

What to expect
  • When your cruise ship docks in Helsinki’s port, meet your private guide and climb in to a private vehicle with a dedicated driver. This ensures your guide’s total attention for the duration of your trip. After a scenic journey, arrive in the idyllic Middle Ages-era town of Porvoo, populated by preserved wooden buildings. Stroll down the narrow streets while learning about the history and culture of the town from your guide. Check out the red warehouses that line the riverbanks, longstanding symbols of the seafaring and trading traditions that define the town. You’ll have plenty of time to ask questions. Walk through the Old Town to see the medieval cathedral, then spend some free time exploring on your own, popping in to shops, cafes, and artist workshops as you see fit. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be dropped back at the cruise port in time to catch your departing ship.
