This sea-port has many tree-lined avenues, graceful parks, lush gardens and distinctive architecture and all these are the main theme of attractions on the walking tour. Starting from the Railway Station down to Kauppatori (Market Square) after passing by the beautifully... More

We limit all of them to 12 persons for the greatest comfort of everyone. Most of our tours are booked months in advance and therefore, we sometimes have no availabilities or last minute opportunities during the high season.... More

We are so glad that we chose to do this tour in Helsinki! Helsinki is a lovely city especially to ride a bike through. Paco, our guide, met us at the designated spot and walked us to our bikes. Once we were fitted with helmets, we rode around the city, stopping at many points of interest. Paco explained the history... More

Love Helsinki, enjoyed catching trams. Loved walking around checking out the old historic buildings. There's an atmosphere that I cant describe, I can only 'feel' it
