Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Pickup is on-time. Clear instructions on how to get on the boat. The tour guide in Tallinn is wonderful. The walk around old town is easy and pleasant. The guided tour is very informational, and there's enough time on your own to have lunch and explore the old town by yourself.

    This trip was a wonderfully relaxing day with a great laid back host who is a knowledgeable and curious naturalist to boot. Everything is thought of, all you have to do is bring your adventurous spirit. The plan for the day is perfect: hike, eat good simple food, get in the sauna, cool off with a few dips in the lake and take a shower and get dropped back off in Helsinki. Very easy 30 minute comfortable trip from the city. This would be my go to if I were coming back to Helsinki again. Highly recommend.

    What a great day trip we had yesterday, June 12, 2024. My best friend and I enjoyed our guide Darius’ commentary throughout the trip. His knowledge of the history of Porvoo and Helsinki in general was enlightening and entertaining. We were a small group of 7 and the van was nice and cozy and comfortable. I got to take some lovely photos and get a true sense of the culture and people of Porvoo. Towards the end we were given our own personal time to grab a delicious bite to eat and or just walk around. Make sure you pickup some chocolates from the Brunberg Chocolate shop. I highly recommend this tour company and guide. Our driver Vladimir got us there and back safely. Great time, great day!!

    Our tour guide Darius was amazing. Personally, I have been to Helsinki and Porvoo before and have taken a tour, but Darius’ tour greatly exceeded my past experience with a different tour provider.

    Darius gave a great tour of Porvoo. The pace was good, he clearly knew many locals as he was waving to people the whole time, and the stops were a good amount of time. But the tour was more than just sightseeing. He had an incredible wealth of knowledge about not just Porvoo, but also Finnish culture. His narration really enhanced the experience.

    Would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone looking for a day trip out of Helsinki. One of the best tours I have ever taken.

    This trip was a wonderful day with great food. The highlight of the trip is the meal prepared at a firepit area (ours was salmon soup) lakeside where you can catch a glimpse of swans and take a little side hike while you wait for the meal to be prepared. The host/guide gives you all kinds of highlights about Finnish culture, native species and just awakens you to the natural world that surrounds you. There’s even tips on foraging! Very entertaining and relaxing. Lots of mosquitoes in the summer but the guide carries bug spray. Just a great day.

    We had a great day with Sergei inTallinn! The company provided clear instructions and made getting on the ferry easy and Sergei was there to greet us as we arrived in Tallinn. He spent the majority of the day driving us from site to site and was incredibly knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. He walked us around Old Town and then gave us a little time on our own to eat and circle back to things we wanted to see more closely. Again, it was incredibly easy to get the ferry back to Helsinki.

    My husband mistakenly left his cell phone in a cafe and I cannot say enough good things about how hard this company worked to help us get it back- even across the Gulf of Finland! I would 100% recommend this your for an enjoyable and informative day trip to Tallinn.

    Szabi was a fantastic guide. He gave us lots of info about Finnish nature and took us to some beautiful spots. The campfire snack was also a highlight and we've just received some very professional photos from our hike. Thank you Szabi!

    Recently, my family and I went on a sightseeing tour of Helsinki and the medieval town of Porvoo, and it was an unforgettable journey! Our guide was simply magnificent – not only did he know all the historical facts and interesting stories perfectly, but he also delivered them with such enthusiasm and charisma that we were all captivated.

    The car we traveled in was very comfortable, making the trip even more enjoyable. In the car, we found bottles of water and various snacks, which were very welcome after our walks through the beautiful streets of Helsinki and the cozy lanes of Porvoo.

    The tour was perfectly organized, the itinerary well thought out, and we managed to see all the key places and landmarks. In Porvoo, we immersed ourselves in a medieval atmosphere, enjoying stunning views and unique architecture.

    Overall, this tour left us with the most positive impressions, and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see and feel the true charm of Finland.

    We thank Delia for the informative tour. The pick up and drop off service was also efficient. It could be nicer if we could stay for a couple more hours as we didn’t have enough time for a full meal to experience the nice atmosphere.

    Terrific tour, the guide Harry was knowledgeable and interesting, he quickly understood what interested me and tailored his narrative accordingly. Saw most of the important Helsinki attractions and learned a lot about Helsinki and Finnish culture and life. Traveled around by foot and tram.

    Discover Turku's charm on a 6-hour tour of landmarks and stories. Begin at a majestic cathedral, meander through the historic Great Old Square, and uncover local treasures. Marvel at the Turku City Library, soak in the ambiance of the Market Square, and explore the ancient Market Hall. Conclude at the scenic Riverboats, immersing in centuries of history and culture. Turku, Finland's oldest city, offers a captivating blend of medieval and modern.
