The three of us had a super nice tour with a competent Turkish guide. His love for Helsinki was very interesting to us. He has years of experience that he can compare with other cities. It brings its absolute highlight at the end. We can only recommend to get an insight into Finland!

Emek is so knowledgeable and meanwhile interesting. He knows everything. There's not a boring moment in the trip. It was -15 degree Celsius that day but Emek took care of us, he adjusted the trip to the most comfortable way and we enjoyed it a lot.
